Re: Leos at home to Bombers

Rainey is thinking point differential for the 3 game total. I liked the call. BB don't think point differential matters in 3 game series. One tie and it matters. BB Well it's better to secure a victory than to give opportunity for a loss. Still the thoroughbred was given an opening and he couldn't ...

Re: Lions 45 - Bombers 42, Post-Game Stats and Comments.

O'Shea brilliant gambles, but just the wrong place on the field to get too cocky. Thank you very much for that momentum changer the Lions were in need of. Rainey is just too good to let teams cover down field like this game and last weeks as well, time to adjust. Speaking of adjusting, the Bombers o...

Re: Lions 41 - Ti-Cats 26, Post-Game Stats and Comments

I hope Heaps doesn't have to play at all. Jennings, Lulay and Ross would all have to be hurt for that to happen. I don't even want to see Ross play unless it's in a short-yardage situation or as a holder for Ty Long, and Lulay has done well in both of those roles. I find myself slightly wanting to ...

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

I heard Bros Jakes contract is not being renewed. stay tuned. BB I just might stay tuned if that's the case. If 1040 would rid themselves of Bro Jake, and at least repeat the daytime shows in the evenings instead of replaying American sport shows, it may capture my attention once again in those tim...

Re: Lions cuts

I would be surprised if Boy Kobe becomes a Lion at this point. As for Waters, I doubt her was interested in second place and pushed for his release. Wally has often kept two K/P on the roster in the past, granted perhaps not at the price tag of Streets contract. Plus Wally can always get McAvoy to g...

Re: Leos at home to Bombers

Wally Buono on facing the Blue Bombers: “I don’t usually concern myself with the opposition, and they’ve got a good football team like we do. Last year all games were down to the wire and I expect the same thing. This type of comment drives me crazy. It's what causes our Leos playoff losses. Its wh...

Re: Lions 23 - Alouettes 16, Post Game Stats and Comments

Why is it that I know Proulx by name? Because he is the least capable ref in the CFL. Like an OL man, the only time you pay attention is when he screws up. If he called the RP on both sides the same that would be tolerable. Sorry the CFO deserves better. The Lion games this season aren't going to br...

Re: Don Matthews Passes Away

Mathew's was an innovator who stuck up for his players and allowed them to have fun in practice so they laid it all on the line game day. Exciting offense plays, great ST plays, and D that dictates to the opposition. He brought swagger to the Lions team that captured this resistant sports town. Lion...

Orridge Steps Down as CFL Commissioner

He is leaving early from his contract according to CKNW News.

Interesting timing as the season is about to start.

Re: Jovan leaves the Den. Confirmation on Page 8.

Just listened to Wally on 1040 with Sekeres and Price. He didn't want to offer anything up on the reasoning other than salary. However at the end he did make a point of saying that the exciting team last year wasn't good enough to compete with the Stamps and players were getting beat. Then he change...

Re: Rintoul toast

That is too bad, Rintoul was a very good Lion supporter, bringing his football background into the equation. I guess we get more US babbling radio in his timeslot. As for the Lions broadcasts, it is becoming a revolving door which hurts the product in the end. No surprise with the T(oronto) S(ports)...

Re: Riders at Lions Nov. 5 postgame comments

Lions run D was really good. They will need that next week. The only thing Jones accomplished this year in Regina is turning a last place team into another last place team. I will go one better, all Jones did was take a last place team without Durant into another last place team with Durant. Quite ...

Re: Paul McCallum to sign with Lions

However, five days into training camp in 2015, without a proven field goal kicker was not the right time to do it. McCallum had kicked 38/42 yard field goals the season before. Leone had relatively no experience at field goal kicking. So the bigger joke was to try to convert him so quickly into a f...

Re: Leos/Riders Post Game Thoughts

Blitz, always good to read your assessments. Sinkfield is playing the coach killer role right now. Thankfully the Lions have enough quality receivers to keep the ball moving the yardsticks. If Sinkfield could live up to his 1000 yard receiving season, the pressure our opposition D's would open up fo...
