Re: Lions in the local media (REVIVED thread 6-10-20)

Typical radio business way of doing business: do a format change with no advance notice or hint and no official announcement. Then carry on with the new format as if the past never existed.

Re: Solly to retire from CFL - will continue to reside in Vancouver

One of the greatest linebacker to don the black and orange. Arguably the best MLB to ever play in the CFL. When Sol first came to the CFL he really made a name for himself as a big hitter. Sometimes the deliverer of the big hit can get injured so a few years into his CFL career he switched to a Pet...

Re: Ed Hervey leaves Lions for "personal reasons"

I'm ok with Campbell being HC, DC, co-GM. He will probably let McEvoy handle most of the GM stuff but with Campbell getting the final say on which players go or stay. Lions could use some veteran leadership on D; someone like, I don't know, Solomon Elimimian....Hervey's biggest mistake was getting r...

Re: 2021 CFL draft

When Bo Lokombo was a lion, I thought that they should have tried him at Safety. Yeah - well that experiment worked out well for the Als - thought he was very solid there replacing the injured Loffler - guy can really hit/tackle but showed range and smarts. With Bo, plus promising draft pick Willia...

Re: Ed Hervey leaves Lions for "personal reasons"

Welcome back Blitz.

I always wavered back and forth between things that I liked about how Wally did things, and things that I didn't like. I felt the same way about Hervey.

So Wally is retired and Hervey is gone. I am not unhappy.

Re: why is CFL interest so tepid in toronto?

I prefer to see the current highly talented CFL rosters with a Canadian player component vs a downgraded less talented, less entertaining heavily Canadianized roster.

Re: why is CFL interest so tepid in toronto?

the league needs to fix toronto, BC and montreal....... wondering if MLSE might want some sort of beach-head in BC, montreal...... will the league be more canadian after a government bailout? The league is moving towards being less Canadian and should think about that aspect as well imo. Not only w...

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.

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.
