I thought there were more teams in local high schools these days. I played at North Van High 1960s- school now gone. Playbook older than the coach and just about as imaginative. Interest in high school sports seemed stronger in those days than what I am getting from the first post. Our games attract...

No afternoon games, Saturday or Sunday. There is just too much else going on. It is unfortunate that both teams overlap but when the Canucks are trying to fit in 40 or so home games there's bound to be some overlap. I don't like the games in summer all that much as that is holiday time but no aftern...

Didn't they march out that huge middle school band from some Fraser Valley School at the half last game and say they were the Grey Cup band? I was impressed that a local middle school had that many students let alone that many in a band. You are right about the marketing this past couple of years. I...

Ok just to throw more fuel onto the fire here... I just read this quote from Buono in the Regina Leaderpost: "It starts with him, with his temperament and preparation," said Buono, who noted Pierce reminds him of former Calgary Stampeders star Jeff Garcia." LFITQ- at least someone reads more broadl...

Hey knowitall... you are doing just fine. Your points are all good and this is a good discussion. Let's come back to this one in five years and see who is closest to who in styles. We may be all surprised.

Why someone makes a comparison that involves a white to white pr black to black QB in the case of Casey and say Warren Moon is more likely to stem from their physical appearance combined with how they play and move on the football field and also who sticks more in your mind than others. Warren Moon ...

I lean to the DD vs MD side of the argument. Matt was a great player but if he played more like DD he'd have lasted longer as he really took too many hits. I am a huge fan of all 3 of these guys. Buck may be a bit confusing to pin point now as he came from an option O for 3 of 4 years and the storie...

Squishy, you should give equal credit to the internet and the Lions use of free agent camps like the one in Lake Oswego, Oregon where several current Lions turned up including Buck Pierce from his home near the Calif- Oregon border. Don't forget the story that Buck Pierce found out about the Lion's ...

I almost bit...lol - Good post...

There is no controversy right now. I call BS. There IS a controversy starting to brew. Jarius Jackson is starting to take some reps in proactice which means there is possible controversy on the horizon as to who is #3. Will it be Jarius or Buck? Will Buono please let us know so we can get the inces...

I caught part of the practice today and Casey wasn't throwing any time I was there. Not sure if he is banged up?? Pierce looked good but for one throw behind Thelwell. This is Buck's first year out of college and he looks real good with a lot of upside to him. Dave D looked good and hope this works ...

I don't think that the team should pick a starter based on how many fans will show up. If you start playing that game, you are not focused on the W and it'll catch up to you. While in the rarefied atmosphere of pro football, one of the considerations of coaches and teams has to be fan excitement. Y...

I think it is Edmonton who took the site down as they are pissed at the poll question as to who has the biggest ears of the Eskimo QBs.
