Re: 2021 CFL free agency

In football, the same is true for defensive end play, cornerback, etc. - switching sides is a challenge. Now have you finally got rid of that right handed slapshot Hambone? Panes of glass were never at risk to my shot Blitz even back when I was in leagues that allowed a slapshot. If I tried a slaps...

Re: 2021 CFL free agency

Linebacker Micah Awe has signed with Ottawa. https://twitter.com/awenchardonnay/status/1360314717051494408?s=21 I always liked the way that Micah played..... fast on the ball and a good tackler..... I'm glad to see that he is continuing his career even if it is in Ottawa..... good wishes to him exc...

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

Another thought, does anyone know if the radio rights for the upcoming season are still held by TSN 1040 with the Lions and the Whitecaps or have they have expired for 2021. JC Abbott re-tweeted a notation that TSN Vancouver and Hamilton hold the CFL rights and usually the rights continue even durin...

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

I don't expect to hear much badmouthing from former employees. There will be negotiations between employees and Bell for severance payments which could be in jeopardy if badmouthing occurs. Even if the radio personalities are contractors (as opposed to salaried employees), there is likely some termi...

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

Pulling TSN 1040 off the air like Bell did yesterday is bloody awful. I am so pissed off at Bell for what they are doing to the Lions and the other sports teams in this market. The only saving grace for their actions is that they did not replace 1040 with the Toronto sports feed. I won't be using Be...

Perhaps not a surprise Elimimian has announced his retirement. From 3DN 4:04 p.m. ET — Absolute bombshell news as former Most Outstanding Player Solomon Elimimian has announced his retirement from football. https://3downnation.com/2021/02/09/hanging-em-up-legendary-linebacker-solomon-elimimian-anno...

Re: 2021 CFL free agency

Any word on Micah Johnson? Nothing from the Lions about releasing him early and they hold the right to match which might be worth it in this situation. Having the trump card might even limit the bidding. Certainly been quiet from the Lions regarding Micah Johnson. But Tuesday isn't far off. I expec...

Re: 2021 CFL free agency

According to 3DN the Lions finally did the expected and released Grymes. It's also listed in CFL transactions so it must be true. TJ Lee loses his bestie. https://www.cfl.ca/2021/02/05/lions-release-db-aaron-grymes/ Also as expected, Grymes will likely be returning to Edmonton, according to Farhan ...

Re: This weekd NFL playoff games

Tom Brady gets to go to his 10th Super Bowl, thanks in part to Green Bay’s decision to kick a field goal on fourth and goal when trailing by 8 points with just over 2 minutes left. They didn’t get the ball back. I thought the game changed away from Green Bay when they did not score a TD early in th...

Re: PAID MY DUES TIME AFTER TIME - LEOS NEW 2021 OFFENCE

Thanks for the post, Blitz. There is a lot of good and thoughtful reading to digest. Certainly I do not want to go back to the past and have hoped for change for years. I fervently hope that Maksymic can start with a relatively clean slate and bring some creative options into the play book . Even mo...

Re: Ed Hervey leaves Lions for "personal reasons"

I think my disappointment about the Claybroks season was that there was no adjustments made to things that were not working. The offence did not work and Claybrooks did not (or was not allowed by Hervey) make changes. I agree that with the changes in place at the GM position and especially the OC po...

Re: Ed Hervey leaves Lions for "personal reasons"

Nice to see you posting, Blitz. I am ambivalent about Hervey's departure from the Lions. It will be interesting to see the team roster in a month from now and compare it to last years roster... a bit of a guide to how well the new kids on the the GM block have done.
