Re: 2020-2021 NHL Season

Losing Tiffoli I think was a big subtraction for this team. He is one of those players who doesn't necessarily seem to be that dangerous, kind of a sleeper but he seems to be able to find the net with a surprising regularity. Right now he is at a point a game pace and on a team like the Canucks that...

Re: 2020-2021 NHL Season

Yeah, watching the Canucks who can't seem to score, defend or make saves when it really counts is making for a long season. And frankly, it isn't very interesting to see the same teams over and over and over and over and over........

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

If the Lions went back to NW, I think that would be a good thing overall. To be perfectly honest, I have much better memories of days when the Lions were on a local station with a much broader format that felt more like a community. One of the bad things about globalization is that much of the infor...

Re: Bryan Burnham re-signs with BC

Well thank goodness for that. It would have been very sad to lose him.

Re: Comparison of player costs NFL to CFL

I'm not sold on the guaranteed contract concept. It just doesn't seem a fit for a sport structured like football, particularly with the current training camp and preseason structure being what it is. Teams now are faced with making calls on rookies after only a handful of padded practices, a bunch ...

Re: Comparison of player costs NFL to CFL

interesting subject and I saw an inflammatory article in last few days saying CFL players are getting screwed. I think the really inflammatory article I saw overlooked the fact that CFL franchises are not overly profitable, nor overly valuable................. if you own a $1.5B franchise, then you...

Re: Braley Wants to Sell Lions

I'm also hopeful that the Lions might get a bit of a shot in the arm (pun intended) after the pandemic is finally under control. People have been sitting at home, doing the isolation thing and when the gates finally open, people may be eager and willing for any and all social pursuits. Maybe this wi...

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: Did Democrats Steal the US Election?

In short, if the evidence for the stealing had been there, it would have been found. The fact that Chump tried to get officials to try and fabricate evidence says it all.

And isn't it just delicious that Trump is bailing on his bills from Giuliani. However will he be able to afford more hair dye.

Re: Ed Hervey leaves Lions for "personal reasons"

Blitz! Long time no see. Glad to see you are still hanging about here and there. I pretty much agree with everything you speculate on the Hervey situation. He may have been an effective player but from a temperament perspective, I have always had my doubts about his abilities as a GM. If he did what...

Re: If Trump was on Lionbackers

Because I would not want to put my sense of civility to the test. I have thought very little of the man since long before he was President. Any place he is going to be is going to attract the kinds of folks I have very little interest in; those that thrive on conflict and disrespect. The only real ...

I think it unlikely that the security gets caught wanting again. Woe to those who are thinking that they will have a chance at a repeat performance. It will be the President Elect that security will be responsible for this time and Biden will have a security detail that won't think too much about sh...

I'll believe he is going to jail when they lock the door. I call this idiot President Teflon for a reason.
