Re: Pending Lions free agents

I tend to agree. Roh appeared to bring some intensity that was lacking much of the time and was a bit of a fan favourite. Oh well, I hope he has a positive next phase.

Re: 2017 BC Provincial Election Thread

I don't think that anybody can argue that it is desperately needed. However it would have cost less 15 years ago when it was "desperately needed".

Re: Closing Franchise Businesses in the Lower Mainland

There was a similar one on Hasting in Burnaby in the 70's . That was somewhere between Rosser and Gilmour . That one pre dated the "Brazier" model. There was also one for years at Clarke Rd on Coq. Burn border . ALL long gone now of course.

Re: Pending Lions free agents

I can't see why on earth we need to look for a receiver unless we have lost someone that I am not aware of? It is one part of the team where we really aren't hurting too much.

Re: Super Bowl LII Game Day Thread, February 4, 2018

There were 4 that I can think of where the game could have turned for better or worse. 1. the 4th down gamble by the Eagles Just for clarification, are you referring to the 4th down gamble late in the second quarter that resulted in a Eagles touchdown, or are you referring to the Eagles penultimate...

Re: Super Bowl LII Game Day Thread, February 4, 2018

Honestly, I think you can say that the Eagles game planned extremely well and executed. The D wasn't as solid as either team would like until it really mattered but in a close game like this, sometimes it does come down to a single play or call. There were 4 that I can think of where the game could ...

Re: Super Bowl LII Game Day Thread, February 4, 2018

A nice result and a decent game from pillar to post. Nice Half-time show too. Makes me kind of cringe when I think of our half time extravaganza in comparison. Not that the Super Bowl is always wonderful but it looks like it has some real $$ behind it.

Re: Throwback Thursday

Interesting, he does not show up in any of the graduating classes of Roseburg Or. High School.
He apparently was a baseball player in college as well.

Re: Odell Willis headed to B.C.

Let's not forget about the D Line either. 1 aging, not every down player is hardly going to fix our woes there. It is an improvement but there is much room for further improvement.

Re: Darian Durant - Signs 1 year deal with Bombers

Meh, unless it was a big quantity, it is unlikely to amount to anything given the pending de-criminalization. Pretty stupid however to cross international boundaries with illegal drugs. If he had been going the other direction, it is likely the outcome would have been far worse.

And what up with Hamilton. Another QB discussion. What happened to Manziel? I haven't been paying the closest attention.

Re: 2017 All Things Lions Marketing & Promotions

Being at the tail end of the Baby Boomer group (1963), I can say I don't much care for the relentless invasion of digital media in my life (and that is coming from a retired Network Engineer). Frankly, there isn't that much that I want to know on a regular basis about most things. If I want to check...

Re: Lions sign 3 DL

You said it perfectly WCJ. I don't care if personnel on the Dline weigh 158lbs soaking wet and are effective because they play in kilts with no underwear. The important word in all of that is "effective". I don't know what it is with this team but there seems to be a few positions where we struggle ...
