Re: Pending Lions free agents

Agree in the Bombers seemingly having an open wallet and will have to cut some high price salary or have talent on the IL. As for Hervey and FA, a strong DL is going to make up for the only true losses of Fenner and Puriofy. Unfortunately with all the secondary talent the Lions have had, it still c...

Re: Pending Lions free agents

I am quite happy that the Lions new GM is able to bring in a lot of players that he has had as players in the past. It speaks highly of what players who know Hervey think of him. He is doing lots to strengthen team weaknesses. I agree. It looks like his rep (at least with his players) is better tha...

Re: Pending Lions free agents

Really like the addition of Cummings. Is there even a spot now for Brooks with three recently acquired internationals (Knapton, Willis and Cummings) destined to start? Lions need to start seven nationals somewhere and a Menard/Luke /Forde rotation for at least one spot on the DL is a natural. I see ...

Re: Pending Lions free agents

Biggest take from the day? Hervey not exactly enthralled with Lions 2017 secondary.

Re: Pending Lions free agents

Purifoy and Fenner are big losses, particularly Fenner. Kinda funny, Purifoy excels at SAM but gives way to Fenner who also excelled and needed to bump Purifoy so he could be inserted as a starter. Now they are both gone. Hope Campbell finds his way here or Heath. Crazy! Purifoy looked lost after e...

Re: Pending Lions free agents

Canadian defensive back Cauchy Muamba has signed a one-year contract with the Lions, per sources. Muamba was originally selected in the fifth round, 34th overall by B.C. in the 2010 CFL draft. He played three seasons with the Lions, one with the Bombers and the last four with Edmonton. The 30-year-...

Re: Questions for Ambrosie?

What is the league's strategy to reach out to the millenials? The ones who walk around Vancouver wearing only Seahawks gear, act like the CFL doesn't even exist and most don't have cable TV even if they were interested in watching. Is the league working with TSN to potentially stream their games? Th...

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

One thing I wonder about Matt is that demographic that is 4-5 years younger than yourself. Through the research the Lions must obviously do or from your own anecdotal sense of things is it a case whereby that 20s to mid-30s demographics age group is tuning out the CFL in favour of other leagues and...

Re: Riders acquire Zach Collaros from Ticats

West just keeps getting tougher. Mitchell, Riley, Collaros/Bridge and Nichols. Lions will need Jennings back to 2016 form or a healthy Lulay just to keep pace. Riders were red hot over 2nd half of season and now looking to close gap further on Alberta teams. BC will try to keep up with old/new mix c...

Re: Football Operations: GM Ed Hervey, HC Wally Buono and the Coaching Staff

I always have wondered if during the glory years from 2005-2011 when the Lions hosted 2 sold out Grey Cups, a number of Western Finals and had solid regular season attendance numbers, that was the time for Braley to invest in building the Lions their own practice facility. He would have left a lasti...

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

https://www.bclions.com/2017/12/21/mark-washington-returns-dc-randy-melvin-re-join-staff/ OK. So Mark Washington is back. Not a surprise. I think his character is outstanding. A good public speaker. No doubt very hard working. 1. Personnel choices in the DL But the personnel choices, and the desire...

Fanatastic to see the schedule realrased this early. Long overdue but why is Edmonton here twice again for the 2nd straight year? Is there not some kind of s rotation?

There goes the thoughts of Franklin coming to BC https://twitter.com/TorontoArgos/status/940284098924417025 Popp not waiting any longer on Ricky Ray's decision unless it actually has been made. Jones being let go as OC was the first show of support for Jennings. Now Franklin out of the equation eve...

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

So Blake Nill lures Ti-Cats offensive coordinator and former McMaster head coach Stefan Ptaszek to the west coast to become UBC's new OC. I wonder if the Lions can do better? http://3downnation.com/2017/12/09/west-coast-shocker-former-ticats-and-mcmaster-coach-accepts-job-at-ubc/ As suggested by oth...
