Re: 2020 CFL draft

Williams goes from being an unsigned American free agent in 2019 to the first overall Canadian pick in 2020. I hope he has a successful career for obvious reasons but also because this is a wacky story. While Williams walked away from a PR salary last season he will get a #1 draft pick salary this ...

Re: 2020 CFL draft

I was expecting more to that. Drop back 3 spots in the 2nd to move up 2 spots to #1 overall is a pretty cheap price to pay. Yea, that's what I thought too. When they said "BC has acquired the first overall pick from Calgary," I thought for sure we'd have to give up a roster player. Then I...

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

I think if there is no 2020 season than the 2021 draft will have reduced number of rounds.

All it takes it someone to attack someone's view and get the Mods on the file. This is the last post I'll deliver to this site. ^^^What is this all about?

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

I saw a thing on TV where Bettman and the NHL are talking about the fantasy (my word) of setting up to play a bunch of NHL fanless playoff games in Edmonton. Several nearby hotels to house teams.

I guess they have the $$ to do this but not enough virus test kits.

Re: Who are your Top 5 Despicable B.C. Lions Players?

I disagree about the Pez. My recollection is that the Lions were broke and ownerless and the Premier of B.C. asked Pezim to take over the ownership and debts. It was Pezim's wining and dining Flutie that was a factor in Flutie agreeing to come to Canada to play. When Flutie became a FA, one could ar...

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

The other day Dr. Henry used the PNE as an example of an event that will be cancelled. From that I concluded that the CFL season is also cancelled, although there is nothing to be gained by announcing it now. My guess is that the CFL season and likely other sports as well will be postponed until a v...

Re: LaPolice picks best all-time CFL minds (all former Lions)

For most of Wally's time in B.C. he was a HC/GM. It is the GM part of the job where he excelled: evaluating and signing players, managing the SMS and the draft. He relied heavily on his assistants for the coaching part but I often thought the personnel assembled was better than what results on the f...

Re: LaPolice picks best all-time CFL minds (all former Lions)

Don Mathews for defense. Mathews would be my second choice. Ralph Sazio, of the then dominate on defense1960s TiCats would be my first choice. He was disguising defenses way ahead of his time. If you were a D player and in practice were 1 foot off your mark of where you should be lining up, a serio...

Don't you mean that you do NOT accept isolation as an excuse for domestic violence?

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

We have to be happy with how it's working its way thru British Columbia if the key stats that the experts and researchers focus on are meaningful. They're saying hospitalization rates, ICU patients and deaths are more important than the actual number of cases. We're extremely lucky that our kid's s...

Re: Doug Flutie with bclions.com!

Flutie mentioned a regret that he didn't get to play for one team for all that long. What I remember is that it didn't what team or what league, if Doug Flutie was playing, then that was the most exciting, enjoyable, amazing Game of the Week.

Re: Training camp update from City of Kamloops

I love attending camp in Kamloops and was hoping to take in every session this year after recently moving to the city. The facilities are by far the best of any I've seen over the past 50-plus years, including UBC, Langley, Abbotsford and Chilliwack. No matter what happens this year, I hope the clu...
