Re: 2021 CFL free agency

This is a tough one as I always liked Rutley. I appreciated his tough, bruising running style and ability to run back kicks just like Monroe Eley did for us years ago. I think we're fairly set at the RB position. We have Shaq Cooper and young Reggie Corbin from Illinois whose tape looks impressive a...

Re: Braley Wants to Sell Lions

In most cases, I would agree with you maxlion. However, Braley's family knows how much the club meant to David. I don't think they want to sell for $1 just to get rid of a depreciating asset. The money set aside (and I'm hearing it should see them through 2-3 years of operation) is to find the right...

Re: Randy Ambrosie optimistic about 2021

It's February 25, certainly no reason to push the panic button (yet). But we're being fed seemingly empty and optimistic promises by Trudeau and Ambrosie on vaccine distribution and the possibility of a 2021 season respectively, yet every morning I wake up and very little seems to be changing. Accor...

Yea, it will be like playing the Habs of the 70's. :rotf:

Homegrown talent. Not a bad strategy for the Als I suppose.

Re: 2021 CFL free agency

Mildly worried about our depth now with both Foucault and Boyko gone (say what you want about their contracts relative to their play, but that's quite a lot of experience we're losing). I imagine the starting 5 L-R will be: J-Fig, Steward, Godber, Chungh, and Mathews. We still have Knevel who can pl...

Re: 2021 CFL free agency

Campbell (& Desjardins) brought in and handed playing time to, a whole slew of young import D-linemen the past couple of seasons in Ottawa; not many panned out good to even decent IMO - Tavai was amongst the best of them, but he is a DE. Different scouts though. We have Ryan Rigmaiden and his l...

Re: 2021 CFL free agency

Team are going to run 150yds a game on us, given the NTs that are left. I think you're assuming that there are zero US FA recruits at the interior of the line which I don't believe is the case. I am hearing the club is high on a couple of DTs (Kamalu, Neal) with NFL experience. Would I feel better ...

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

To be brutally honest, much of the on-air roster at 650 is weak compared to what 1040 had. This I agree with. Also, if Bell really gave a crap they would make the hard changes, perhaps forcing higher-priced talent into retirement, raising advertising fees, or airing more hours of low-cost syndicati...

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

Sad to see a legend hang them up but we can say that we witnessed one of the greatest ever linebackers to play in the league, right here in B.C. https://www.tsn.ca/solomon-elimimian-i-came-i-saw-and-i-thrived-1.1590496 Interesting comment here: I’ll be honest, when it comes to Wally Buono: for the f...

Re: 2021 CFL free agency

I read that the Stamps may go with 3 imports along the O-line. And as much as I would enjoy seeing Bo running for his life, I am not concerned about that group. They are always extremely well-coached by Pat DelMonaco.

Re: 2021 CFL free agency

That has served the Lions well over the years as the likes of Key, White, Volpe, Mallett and Smith all arrived as rookies and made an immediate impact. I recall Larry Key's impressive debut in 1978 against Winnipeg. He rushed for 184 yards and 3 rushing touchdowns! And yes, I would very much be int...

Re: 2021 CFL free agency

Not sure if we were ever in the running for Almondo Sewell, but he won't be signing in B.C. :dizzy: Process of elimination and it would appear that the "team in the Eastern division" would be the Als but I am not 100% sure. https://twitter.com/AlmondoSewell90/status/1358112340328083456?s=2...
