2018 Winter Olympic Games Thread

It's still three weeks away but the 2018 Winter Olympics will be starting soon enough in PyeongChang, South Korea. It's a third time charm for them after losing the 2010 games to Vancouver and again in 2014 to Sochi. Who remembers the last time South Korea hosted the Olympics - back in the September...

Re: 2017-18 NFL Season Thread

Despite being the wild card team that took the final spot over the Seahawks, the Atlanta Falcons appear to be determined to return to the Super Bowl with a convincing NFC West representative, the LA Rams. In terms of personal biases, how about supporting the Buffalo Bills by qualifying for the playo...

Re: 2017-18 NFL Season Thread

Now that the Seahawks failed to make the playoffs for the first time in several seasons, which team will you root for? Any personal biases, e.g. ex-Lions on one of the playoff teams? The Titans just upset the Chiefs. And I know I posed this situation before. I wonder if those living in St. Louis wil...

Re: 2018 World Juniors

Wow, that's a first. The Swedish captain just took off his silver medal and threw it across the glass wall to the stands. [media]https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0_So2L_viZk[/media] Someone in the audience caught it and I'm sure that will be a much better souvenir than a hockey puck that goes into th...

Re: Throwback Thursday

When it comes to Lions management who should have strong effort to retain a particular Lions player, one possibility albeit very controversial is DT James Curry. He signed up the Lions in 1983 and played for nine games and got 6 sacks, but in October before the playoffs, was waived and he ended up o...

Big loss for the Canucks as they lost Bo Horvat for 6 weeks with a fractured ankle.
:bang: :-? Just when you thought the Canucks were finally ready for a huge positive streak.

Hopefully Horvat can return sooner. :pray:

Re: Throwback Thursday

One of the worst free agency losses in Lions history, perhaps just as bad as that of Doug Flutie, is that of LB Willie Pless. Received as part of the 6-for-1 trade for Matt Dunigan to the Argonauts, Pless was the only useful player out of the six players received prior to the 1990 season. Unfortunat...

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

Oh, when Casey said Warren Moon was his model it was laughable for one reason. Moon was totally established in the CFL (5 GCs IIRC) and he went to the NFL IIRC when Hugh Campbell his former Esks coach was there so already he had the love. And now, with all these celebrity sexual harassment accusati...

Re: 2017-18 NFL Season Thread

My guess is that the Canadian flag was for neither Ryan nor Willson, but, instead, just an indication of support for the Seahawks by Canadian fans. I've read that about 10% of the fans at Seahawks home games are Canadian--the majority, I'd guess, from the lower mainland. The Seahawks have cultivate...

Re: 2017-18 NFL Season Thread

FWIW, I don't know, can't recall, if he in any way had anything to do with the particular play you refer to Robbie, or perhaps did something that series, but tight end Luke Willson (with two 'L's as they often like to say) is Canadian (grew up near Windsor, ON.) Never played in the CFL, but he is C...

Re: 2017-18 NFL Season Thread

Despite a depleted defence, the Seahawks stood up their challenge against the best offence in the league by limiting them to just 10 points in their 24-10 win over the Philadelphia Eagles - with help with the officials as the lateral pass was indeed a forward one upon review. ------------- Over a de...

Boeser named Rookie of the Month. Looks like the Canucks have finally found a sniper
It would be good if Brock Boeser becomes only the second ;canucks: to win the Calder Memorial Trophy after Pavel Bure in 1992.
