Re: Locker Room Sale - 2017

The $50 Rebok game used jerseys were nice, but mostly players who didn't sell in previous years. Guys who were never stars, and some who may have only been in the lineup for pre-season. This drives me crazy. Auction this stuff off if it doesn't sell. This isn't rocket science. You purport to be a f...

Re: Lions 50th Season Leather Jacket

At this point, it has sat in my closet here since 2010, so I'd be open to finding it a home. It is, however, a 3XL so David you'd more or less have to eat like an American for at least a year or two to fit in it. The patch was ordered directly through the BC Lions retail store. I honestly don't know...

Re: Football Operations: Ed Hervey - GM, Wally Buono - VP and HC

Can we talk about the scarf? Because that's the worst merchandise accessorizing since Skulsky wore receiver gloves with a suit at the launch press conference for the new Reebok uniforms a few years ago.

Re: Lions 50th Season Leather Jacket

I have one as well, but a couple of things... That's not what that jacket was. Roots made those in 2002 for all the teams. I discovered it after Adam Rita wore one on the sidelines in a late season game. Roots, I think, only made and sold those in 2002 and 2003. They are fantastic and I wish they'd ...

Re: CFL Season Should Start Earlier

Not necessarily that simple to start on Canada Day. In 2018 for instance Canada Day falls on a Sunday and with the current 20 week schedule setup would see the season end on the Remembrance Day weekend with the divisional semis going November 18th and Grey Cup being pushed to December 2nd.......in ...

Re: Football Operations: Ed Hervey - GM, Wally Buono - HC

Here's Hervey's very first test: If 'the first thing we need to do is better at protecting the QB', then how he chooses to address this will tell you all you need to know about the arrangement, depending on whether the issue is addressed through personnel, coaching or both. Speaking of coaching, we'...

Here's a spitball if ever there was one....

The league has agreed to loan the Waterboys $5 million to make their $15 million pitch a $20 million offer.

Braley accepted and is in fact selling the team.....
That's hilarious that you think the league has $5 million sitting around to loan people.

Re: CFL Season Should Start Earlier

In 2017, there were 22 Saturdays between Canada Day and the end of November, enough for a 19 week regular season and three playoff weeks. With ten teams, that's 18 regular season games and one bye week. So...what non existent problem are we trying to solve here, other than to chase non-existent Ame...

Re: CFL Season Should Start Earlier

Oh this bull***t about going after the American market again. Stop it. Just stop. Average attendance of games before Labor Day this season was 22,760. The average after labor day, league wide, is 22,200. That's a 2.9% drop. The premise that the weather is the cause of a ratings dip is nonsense. Diff...

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

I don't know that there are any good answers. And because there aren't, it's likely Wally stays as HC/GM until he feels Geroy is ready for a larger role. And I'm not bothered by that as much as I would be by the retention of much of the rest of the staff. Part of the reason you lose is because your ...

Re: Marco Iannuzzi to retire at the end of this season

I don't think that Marco's age is necessarily a barrier to being president. However, his lack of relevant education and experience should be taken into account. Of course, we have seen other instances where utterly unqualified individuals have become president of hockey teams or countries, but I wo...
