Re: Ed Hervey leaves Lions for "personal reasons"

I am not all that sad about Hervey's departure. I wish him well and hope everything is OK, but I have always been up and down about whether I like him as a GM going back to when he first started with the Esks.

Have the lions not recently played on thanksgiving, or is TSN slighting them

Maybe TSN looked at the tape and picked the best games?

Re: Speculation is over. No season in 2020.

There's a huge difference in the number of players who have opted out for each team: SSK 25 CGY 14 HAM 14 WPG 9 OTT 9 TOR 7 BCL 5 EDM 5 MTL 2 I suspect that most of these players will return to the CFL but it does seem odd that so many Riders players opted out. 25 players, its like a entire startin...

Re: Speculation is over. No season in 2020.

Catching on in the NFL for a CFLer has always been about being at the right team when an injury opens up a roster spot combined with not having to compete with a less talented but high paid draft pick. And now Covid makes it even trickier.

I agree 100%. I would have paid good money to Elemimian and others and got some other less expensive QB.
Someone like Travis Lulay ?

Re: Speculation is over. No season in 2020.

I didn't agree with signing Reilly in 2019 for what he was paid (maybe the 2015 version, with a few years less hard mileage on him though would have been worth it). I doubt Wally would have signed him for that price if he had still been in charge of BC in 2019. I agree 100%. I would have paid good ...

Re: Speculation is over. No season in 2020.

MBT going to free agency is a big one. I liked what I saw from him last year. Like him better than Mike Reilly to be honest. Believe most opt outs were one year deals with Ricky Collins being an exception. His deal requires him to go back to Edmonton if he doesn't make the NFL. CFL didn't really co...

Re: TSN all-time Lions team

I am not the guy to research it, but it would be interesting to come up with an all time team based on who had the most number of all star selections at each position.

Re: Speculation is over. No season in 2020.

i have said this a few times. but i think the CFL should change things up some and the federal government should be a major sponsor going forward beyond covid. nothing different than the CBC or the national ballet. and for the money, CFL benefit/dollar would be astronomically higher than the CBC. c...

Re: Speculation is over. No season in 2020.

I don't put too much blame on Ambrosie. I'm not sure that a 2020 season was ever viable for the CFL (barring a large infusion of cash). No other pro league needed such an infusion to operate. No other pro league has the challenges of the CFL. I do agree that his $150m pitch was perhaps not as well ...

Re: TSN all-time Lions team

Wally gets the call at HC, but if I wanted to win games it would be Don Mathews as HC.

Re: TSN all-time Lions team

I would have had Passaglia as punter with his ability to run for a FD and Paul McCallum as FG kicker with the stronger leg of the two. I'd also prefer Jim Young over Arceneaux, although the way they did it both players made the team. Banks and Miles should also be on the team instead of Carter and G...
