Re: COVID-19 : How it could impact Lions/CFL

The biggest news in Farhan's report was that players would be expected to report to Winnipeg Sept. 14 and isolate for six days before training camp begins. That means play won't start until October. I wonder if that timeline is a necessity given the logistics involved in planning for the bubble or i...

Re: Simulated CFL Games

Didn't want to start a new thread. Tough loss on Friday night football for the 2019 Lions in Hamilton for the Hall of Fame game. Two late touchdowns cost two points that might have changed the season. Lions played well enough to win the game. John White ran hard. Mike Reilly looked good. A tip ball...

Re: Eskimos: change your name

Seattle's NHL team is going to be called Kraken. Krack for short, I guess. Kinda fits in with the consumption practices of Chaz/Chop crowd along with Seattle's large homeless crowd. And then there will be the opposing fans chanting "Krack is Crap" or "Hey Krack, Blow it Out Your Nose". Don't these ...

Re: COVID-19 : How it could impact Lions/CFL

The CFLPA has issued a statement saying both sides have agreed to extend the deadline for reaching a new CBA to next week pending decisions on government funding and health protocols. https://3downnation.com/2020/07/24/cfl-cflpa-extend-deadline-for-2020-season-cba/ According to Farhan Lalji of TSN a...

Re: COVID-19 : How it could impact Lions/CFL

The latest update from Farhan Lalji on the CFL's self-imposed deadline day for reaching a tentative deal with the CFLPA: “This is just a prediction, but my gut says we are going to get a deal done, we are going to get government money and we are still not going to see a CFL game played,” Lalji said....

Re: Simulated CFL Games

The virtual Lions defeated the virtual Alouettes 27-9 Thursday at B.C. Place to win their fourth straight simulated game of the 2020 season on Twitch.TV. The 1 p.m. weekday start of the simulation caught me off guard so I didn't get to watch. The virtual Lions are now 4-3.

https://3downnation.com/2020/07/23/cfl-players-overwhelmingly-reject-most-recent-financial-proposal-for-shortened-2020-season/ This maybe just a CFLPA negotiating tactic, or the End Is Near.

Re: Lions announce the passing of Ted Gerela

Ted Gerela revolutionized the kicking game. Until he demonstrated the power of soccer-style kicking, all CFL kickers were toe-punchers. Many were positional players who often tied the toes of their boots up in the air before kicking and then untied them to return to their regular positions. RIP.

Re: COVID-19 : How it could impact Lions/CFL

The province of Saskatchewan appears to have upped Manitoba's ante by committing $3 million to the Saskatchewan Roughriders' bid have Regina selected as the CFL's 2020 hub city.

Re: COVID-19 : How it could impact Lions/CFL

Talks are moving rapidly on several fronts to reach an agreement on a partial 2020 season by the end of this week. On Monday, the Manitoba government pledged $2.5 million to help Winnipeg serve as the league's hub city. The plan is to hold 60 games over 15 weeks, including the Grey Cup, provincial S...

Re: Simulated CFL Games

I missed the simulation but, just like with real games, I had to look up the score and stats afterwards. The virtual Lions took advantage of 4 Zach Collaros interceptions, including a 109-yard pick-6 by Keon Lyn, to defeat the Great Cup champion Winnipeg Blue Bombers 29-15 Friday. The Lions’ third s...

Name suggestion. The Edmonton Endurance. Keep the same logo.
There are lots of options for keeping the logo. I suggested Edmonton Elk. Others have said Edmonton Empire.

25 incomplete pass attempts. doesn't sound very realistic.
And minus-1 yard rushing at one point in the fourth quarter. It’s not realistic but take it for what it is. Adam Konar is a beast at virtual middle linebacker. I wish that were realistic.
