Re: Odell Willis headed to B.C.

Personally I think the Riders made the better deal today. Agreed. The Riders now have two of the league’s best pass rushers in Jefferson and Hughes. It took some complicated deals with East Division teams the Lions and Riders have both bolstered their D-lines at the expense of the Stamps and Eskimo...

It's a busy trading day for veteran defensive ends, with Charleston Hughwa traded from Calgary to Hamilton for a fourth-round draft pick and a swap of frouth-rounders, and Odell Willis traded from Edmonton to Ottawa for defensive tackle Jake Ceresna. According to the Edmonton Journal, Ottawa was exp...

Re: Lions ownership discussion thread

The campaign is "Don't Be A Bystander," not "Don't Be A Wife-Beater." It was ahead of the curve in society. I see it as a positive message in the community.

Re: Pending Lions free agents

Micha Awe released today to allow him to pursue an NFL opportunity. Don't like this. Maybe they have their sights on Konar in FA? Hervey told Steve Ewen he was reluctantly following through with a commitment to Awe that was made by "someone who is no longer with the organization." Just after annive...

I'll give some other folks a crack at this one Ernie before revealing the answer tomorrow (if no one knows it). Let's just say that....it is not surprising that all 3 guys had nicknames! :wink:

Re: 2017 All Things Lions Marketing & Promotions

Newspapers are my main news source. They have pictures too.... As a newspaper journalist, I can’t argue with that. :wink: Still, lot of newspaper stories start with tweets from news sources.

Re: 2017 All Things Lions Marketing & Promotions

Twitter is my main news source. I follow the league, teams, players, sports media organizations and journalists and rely on news being posted to Twitter first. Facebook is for friends and family. I follow some celebrities on Instagram but don't post there. I notice a lot of links on Twitter to pictu...

Re: Shaq Johnson signs new contract

Isn't 5 pack the most basic, frequent look offence for Wally? Arcenaux & Burnham are givens - - both excellent; and maybe Shaq Johnson has solidified himself as the wide-side WR; wouldn' t that leave 2 more receiver spots in the 5 pack? Iannuzzi played quite a bit but he's gone; Nick Moore, or plen...

Re: Lions sign 3 DL

Also, I am quite sure Roh didn't play all 18 games last season. Didn't he miss 1 or 2 games late in the year with a calf injury or something? DH :cool: You're right. I believe he missed two games late in the season and returned for the final two, so he played 16. Watching Roh line up inside on pass...

Re: Lions sign 3 DL

I'm not quite sure but once again, we seem to be intent on bringing in lots of "maybes" rather than making a concerted effort to bring in established players through free agency. I still hope that Gabe Knapton and DeQuin Evans can be two missing pieces that the Lions didn't have for most of last ye...

Re: Lions sign 3 DL

Smaller and quicker seems to be the norm across the CFL. The numbers can somewhat be taken with a grain of salt given where we are in the offseason and teams are at different points of filling their TC roster but some raw numbers: 300#+ linemen: There are currently only 5 listed on rosters across t...

Re: Lions sign 3 DL

The Lions are staying with the blueprint of smaller DL. Big or small, the performance of our DL has been lacking in recent years. Not enough pressure on the QB. Because of the system and the play design? Contain rather than attack? Possibly. But also because of the choices of International personne...

Re: Lions sign new QB

The Lions may need to bolster their QB roster for minicamp. Jennings and Lulay are still recovering from injuries. I don't know if Jennings will be throwing at all. That just leaves Ross, Gale and Birdsong. In the past the Lions have brought six QBs to minicamp and at least five to main camp.
