Re: 2019-20 Vancouver Canucks/NHL Season Thread

Official: It's going to be Seattle Kraken! No alliteration and hopefully no political incorrectness. Logo is a stylized 'S' with a red eye and a tentacle through the 'S'. The name of its arena may not sound the most attractive: Climate Pledge Arena At least it doesn't appear to be controversial. htt...

Re: 2019-20 Vancouver Canucks/NHL Season Thread

On July 23, Seattle NHL's team will reveal their team name and logo and some predict it would be Metropolitans, Krakens, Sockeyes, or Sirens. I suppose for alliteration and along with the Seahawks, Sounders, Storm, and previously SuperSonics and SeaDogs, the name will start with an 'S'. And with all...

Re: Eskimos: change your name

Do you remember of cases in which a city had two sports teams with the same nickname? I easily remember that for the city of St. Louis from 1960 to 1987, both their NFL football team and their MLB baseball team were named the Cardinals. Pittsburgh almost had the trifecta. The MLB Pittsburgh Pirates...

Re: Eskimos: change your name

How about Edmonton FC. ? Too late. Edmonton FC already exists as a team in the CPL soccer league. Do you remember of cases in which a city had two sports teams with the same nickname? I easily remember that for the city of St. Louis from 1960 to 1987, both their NFL football team and their MLB base...

Re: Eskimos: change your name

It's official that the Washington Redskins will change their nickname and logo to a new name TBD. I wonder if this will cause a huge chain reaction with the changing of all remaining controversial sports team names.

Re: Greatest touchdowns in Lions' history

#7 - Eric Carter in the 2000 WDF When it comes to defensive Lions touchdowns, most people will remember Keith Gooch in the 1985 WDF and Charles Gordon in the 1994 GC. But similar to point #1 above about how 2000 season is unpopular, then along with is the 2000 WDF in which the Lions went to Calgary...

Re: 2000 Team bonding leads to Grey Cup Win

Finally, one of the most underrated, underappreciated, and forgotten Lions games in its entirety - the 2000 WDF in which the Lions went to McMahon as underdogs and but performed terrific especially the defence to come out with a solid 37-23 win. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eukvdyS20n8 And my pro...

Re: 2004 - a tough Grey Cup loss

Sept 18: Edmonton 33 at BC 36 (OT)


While not official, this Lions win allowed them to be closer to clinching first in the west for the first time in 5 years. Sean Fleming's attempt to tie the game failed when his FG hit the crossbar.

Re: Eskimos: change your name

Because of Black Lives Matter and the crisis that's happening in America right now, the Washington Redskins name change has revived yet again. And if the nickname does change, I wonder if it will cause a chain reaction to change all sports team names related to people groups. ------------ In 2001 an...

Re: Greatest touchdowns in Lions' history

Here is another excellent example of a more forgotten and underrated Lions greatest touchdowns. We all agree that the 2004 WDF is much more memorable compared to the 2000 WDF and perhaps even the 2006 and 2011 WDF because they were blowout wins. But even though the 2004 is well remembered and memora...

Re: Greatest touchdowns in Lions' history

I will tell you which Lions TD will NOT rank in the anywhere in the top 20 when it comes to greatest TD's in Lions' history despite its huge sentimental background behind it as it involves legend Lui Passaglia. First, as a warm-up. If there's a discussion on Lui's greatest field goal, we all know wh...
