Re: Playoff Thread - Edmonton vs. Winnipeg, Ottawa vs. Saskatchewan

SSK @ TOR ... I very much like Ricky Ray, Marc Trestman and James Wilder. But I find I am rooting for Kevin Glenn to win a Grey Cup. EDM @ CGY ... I will always respect Hufnagel. I find Dickie not so easy to like as a coach, but he knows how to coach. I don't usually like Edmonton, mostly for past t...

Re: 10th team in Halifax - Braleys ulterior motives

This CFL fan would love to see a franchise in the Maritimes.

As to Braley hanging on to ownership of the Lions to collect on a share of the franchise fee, I cannot see it. Peanuts or chump change to a man with Braley's wealth, it seems to me.

Re: Football Operations: GM, Head Coach, Coaching Staff?

One CFL assistant who has been named as a head coaching candidate in Montreal is Ottawa OC Jaime Elizondo. His contract is up this year so he may be easier to sign than LaPolice. I’m not sure whether Elizondo or his predecessor Jason Maas is the architect of Ottawa’s offence but it is innovative an...

Re: Football Operations: GM, Head Coach, Coaching Staff?

Remember WCJ that after the Riders pilfered the entire Eskimo coaching staff and Thorpe tried to quit and jump immediately to Maas' staff Commish Orridge put in place a policy regarding coach movements in the offseason. Lapolice appears to be under contract for 2018. Yes BC or anybody else can seek...

Re: Football Operations: GM, Head Coach, Coaching Staff?

"meeting with the coach and gm Wally Buono and the rest of the staff" I can't see them handing out a bunch of pink slips. Sounds more like he believes in them, but they have to make improvements in how they do things for next year. It sounds like Braley figures some tweaks in the operation are all t...

Re: Best BC Lions Owner?

Times change. And a good thing runs its course. Braley came to depend on Wally more and more. Braley became more and more of an absentee owner. Braley got old, and started to dither on some issues. He got away from hard-headed business evaluations and decisions in some cases. He let the franchise g...
