Re: A Decision On Tedford is Needed NOW

I started this last night, and obviously a lot has happened since then. Well, good luck to all of you here in your pursuit as Lion's fans...my best wishes to you all. It was a fun time here that was made very special at times by the incredible insight from so many very intelligent Lion's fans. In pa...

Re: Wally HC/ GM Again

I'm ok with Wally on the sidelines. Let's be real here. It's not like Tedford did anything that couldn't be done by someone with half his experience and salary. His schemes were boring and he quite frankly looked bored on the sidelines. What I won't be ok with is the two or three victories Wally wi...

A Decision On Tedford is Needed NOW

Wally's calculated decision to "fight fire with fire" in hanging Tedford out to dry at the season's end needs to end this week...either state he's your HC and has full control over his staff, or let him go. If Tedford is fired, it doesn't really matter whether Wally announces his return to...

Re: Grey Cup, Game Day Thread

Credit to Jones. Attacking football. Reilly MOP. Yes, and credit to OTT as well who do the same. You are watching two coaching staffs that MIX THINGS UP, play aggressive football, have team discipline and show confidence in their players. All of this is foreign in BC. Win or Lose, both teams and th...

Re: Wally Buono won't commit to Jeff Tedford for 2016

Sounds like Tedford didn't conduct any player exit interviews. That's not a sign of a coach coming back. Lots of talk that Wally will be the coach on the sidelines next year. I agree. I can't think of any coach that I know that would not conduct, at the very, very least, somewhat informal exit inte...

Re: Wally Buono won't commit to Jeff Tedford for 2016

McMann won't have to be fired. LU said last week he is retiring. He actually wanted to at the end of the 2014 season and was coaxed into returning one more season. That was one big mistake. McMann's return meant that Kelly Bates was let go. Kelly did a great job as the RB coach, could have become o...

Re: Wally Buono won't commit to Jeff Tedford for 2016

LU is on the recent Lions Den Pawdcast and as usual he had some interesting observations: Tedford likely says as the Lions won't want to eat his contract. Cortez might retire and Jarious Jackson might be a candidate for the vacant OC job. Khari Jones probably gone as he was mostly retained this sea...

Re: Braley begins process of selling team

Thanks for posting Sammy...this is par for the course of the Lions under the control of Wally Buono...not so much when Bob Ackles was in charge. I like Blitz's idea of bringing Scott Ackles back into the fold in a meaningful way.

Re: Harris Basically Says Good Bye

Even in war, sometimes a soldier should choose not to do what his leader wants. WCJ Each of us is born with inalienable rights. We should all be able to speak our minds and choose our own fates without the opinions, rules and/or laws of others weighting us down. But this is NOT what society teaches...

Re: Harris Basically Says Good Bye

Hufnagel has built a good culture in Calgary. Cornish has had his moments of "misbehaviour" or difficulty. But he is not a bad guy. I would say Harris is not a bad guy, and has been even less of a problem than Cornish. The culture starts at the top. Hufnagel was able to reel Cornish in, s...

Re: Harris Basically Says Good Bye

Harris also had more touches than any other RB in the league. How many more touches do you want him to get? Wow, now there's some logic for you. Injuries (especially to Cornish) and recycling RBs around the league led to Harris leading the league in RB touches...and because he is a dual threat and ...

Re: Wally Buono won't commit to Jeff Tedford for 2016

Wally's comments on Tedford clearly show that there is less than unanimous support for Tedford within the organization. In this situation, the GM has 3 choices: 1. Speak his mind openly. 2. Refuse to comment. 3. Publicly back the coach while doing evaluations behind closed doors. Fans and media ten...

Re: Harris Basically Says Good Bye

He said he really wanted to win a CFL rushing title as a goal and I highly doubt being sat after the 1st quarter sat well with him as Messam played 3 quarters for Calgary so that Messam could reach his goal, and Harris probably lost a big bonus by not winning the rushing title. I would submit that ...

Re: Harris Basically Says Good Bye

“That is something that we’ll talk about in personnel meetings,” began Tedford of Harris’s status. “I think he carried the ball 42 times more than anybody else in the league, so he had his opportunities, and had a good year as far as stats were concerned. He led the league in total offence. I think...

Re: Why so negative ...

When it takes a professional organization half a season to realize that an American rookie College grad as a LB/Rush End shouldn't be our starting DT (as we rank dead last in EVERY single Defensive category), then you begin to understand the FRUSTRATION here. I am not sure FRUSTRATION is always equ...
