Re: 2021 CFL free agency

Switching from the left side to the right side or vice versa is a huge change for any offensive lineman. It involves a different stance, different lead foot, different drop foot on pass protection, different punch hand, etc. Jovan Olifioye was a rare exception. He started out winning a CFL West All...

Re: Solly to retire from CFL - will continue to reside in Vancouver

Who was the greatest CFL middle linebacker? There is a good case to be made for Sol E. as the greatest ever. Compelling arguments could also be made for Willie Pless, Wayne Harris, or Dan Kepley. All of them dominated in different eras. They were all a treat to watch play the game. Tom Brown of our ...

Re: 2021 CFL free agency

Boyko might have been the most overhyped player on this board's history — going back to why did we draft a player with NFL aspirations to the annual training camp updates on him being released only spending years on practice rosters. The Boyko hype or the Byko hope certainly was prevalent on Lionba...

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

Murdoch, OV 0 55:40, Dusty, and B. C. Fan 0 - I read your insightful comments with great interest and appreciation. A CONFESSION Before responding to some of your comments, I need to begin with a confession that I have committed a cardinal sin, as a CFL aficionado. All my life, until the past decade...

Re: TSN all-time Lions team

TSN all-time Lions team TSN unveiled its all-time Lions team Friday, and that has stirred up a debate about some of the selections and omissions. Here is the team: Head Coach – Wally Buono (2003-11, 2016-18) Quarterback – Travis Lulay (2009-18) Running Back – Willie Fleming (1959-67) Running Back –...

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 p...

Re: Ed Hervey leaves Lions for "personal reasons"

Really glad you're back posting, Blitz. Now, if we can get WestCoastJoe out of Lionbacker retirement, we can get the band back together. :wink: I miss Wallyball on the admin side as he ran a tight ship, generally hired good scouts and coaches, but not on the head coaching side as I believe he was t...

Re: Ed Hervey leaves Lions for "personal reasons"

Hey groooooovy Lionbacker colleagues. I believe Ed Hervey was fired from our B.C. Lions and he was allowed to say he was leaving for personal reasons. Hervey could have asked for a leave for personal reasons. It would be rare for anyone to give up a well paying and rare job during a pandemic and in ...

Re: Riders 45 - Lions 18 -- Post Game Comments

Because what has Reilly done that is a detriment to the team? Jennings wasn't a good QB even when he had time. Like I said last year, he never looked comfortable, and he made plenty of poor decisions. I think his play in Ottawa this year has certainly proven Ed Hervey (and myself) right. However, t...
