Re: Menard has re-signed with the Lions

One of my favourite Leos. I've always thought that he should be getting more playing time that his spot rotational duty. He has definitely exceeded expectations from his draft position (4th round, 32nd overall), but always knew he was as strong as an ox. IIRC, he won the bench press competition at t...

Re: Jerry Keeling Passes

Will forever be remembered for the 1971 Grey Cup at Empire Stadium, delivering the Stamps their first Grey Cup in 23 years. Two very slim quarterbacks in that game. Keeling , who could escape from a jail cell sideways, against Argos rookie, "Skinny Joe" Theismann. I always thought Keeling and Ti-Cat...

Re: Need some advice

Hey Sir P. I would suggest putting them up for bid on Ebay. Truthfully though, I don't know that you're going to get much for the CFL Illustrated mags. They're probably not old enough to be worth anything to true CFL collectors, but you never know. I might be interested in your 1970-71 Canucks yearb...

Re: Shaq Johnson signs new contract

Shaq Johnson as a 4th round pick (32nd overall) has turned out to be a very astute pick for Lions management. Made some tough, deep catches last year. Really good hands and lightning speed. In fact, there were two sharp picks in the 4th round. The Argos took FB Declan Cross in the 4th round, 27th ov...

Re: Throwback Thursday

Here is another one, guys. I believe this is QB Randy Duncan. Quite a bit before my time, but I appreciate the history.

Re: Throwback Thursday

B.C. Lions uniform, 1960-61 (Empire Stadium).

Notice the "U of Michigan" style helmets they wore back then. This preceded the "paw" logo which they wore from 1962-66.

Re: Jennings contract re-structured

If Lulay returns in time for training camp, then all is well for 2018 at least. But if it is halfway through the season, we better have a better backup than Alex Ross. Even if Lulay does return, it may only be for a year, and Jennings is no sure thing. Not sure if you listened to TSN1040's intervie...

Re: Alouettes sign QB Josh Freeman

I think the QBs that have the best CFL careers are the ones with the talent but not the height and weight that the NFL is looking for. So, the ones with the least NFL experience are more likely not the big guys. No one can convince me that Mike Reilly couldn't run an offense down south, plus he has...

Re: Lions trade for RB Brandon Rutley

what is happening with Shaquille Johnson? I am a little confused about this player. I thought he played some running back and I found at least one place that listed him as RB, yet I find him listed as WR in other places??? maybe I am getting him mixed up with MURRAY-LAWRENCE, Shaquille. Is this guy...

Re: Lions trade for RB Brandon Rutley

Interesting to know who the neg list player was. A QB I'd suspect lol Could be Alabama QB Jalen Hurts who is on our neg list. He had a wretched first half in the college football championship game, where he couldn't hit the broad side of a barn combined with bad reads. I am sure a lot of NFL teams ...

Re: Glenn signs in Edmonton

This doesn't do much to enhance the image of our league. Detractors will have a field day with this, but I can't worry about it. If not this, then they will find something else about the league to belittle. Thought he might get signed as Hamilton's back-up who would then trade Manziel's rights to Mo...

Re: Pending Lions free agents

I wouldn't say Fabien is a key piece on the O-line. He was awful last year. Don't like seeing Johnson back either, we need to really upgrade our O-line. Yes, I should have said Steward and Fabien are the two remaining national starters who have yet to be signed. I think Steward is a key piece of th...

Re: The decline of Vancouver sports media & its effect on Lions

The thought occurred to me this morning as I listened to two young guys on Sportsnet 650 dissect the 2017 Seattle Seahawks and speculate on off-season moves. What will Vancouver's sports broadcasting look like in 20 years? Eventually, those with a passion for the Leos and the CFL, such as Don Taylor...

Re: Johnny Manziel Offered 2 Year Contract

Pay him what is commensurate with other inexperienced QBs coming into the league, make him compete just like any other QB and at the end of the day, judge him simply on that. I hear what you're saying....BUT, this is not your average, garden variety college star and NFL flame-out potentially coming...
