Re: Lions announce the passing of Ted Gerela

Impossible to let this news pass without adding my thoughts. I grew up watching the Lions and Ted Gerela was a favourite almost right from his first kick. I became envious of his success kicking "soccer style" so I tried to emulate him but I failed miserably, probably because I had never p...

Re: Empire Stadium Replay Screen

That's quarterback Don Moorhead (#27) and head coach Eagle Keys on a warm summer night in 1974. DH :cool: In those days our seats were in section EE, aka the CKNW '98 Club, and I remember a few summer evenings like the one in the photo where we would need to "salute" the sunset, much like...

It was Jerome Messam.

Either that, or having spent far too long in self-isolation! :bang:

Re: Who are your Top 5 Despicable B.C. Lions Players?

Aside from a few of the names already mentioned, I can't think of any player being particularly "despicable" on the field. Much in the same manner as Steve Muhammad, Yonus Davis, et al, who ran into troubles with the law after they played here, a fellow North Vancouverite certainly gets my...

RIP Vic Kristopaitis

Just read in the paper about the passing of former Lions punter Vic Kristopaitis. He was 85. Here's an excerpt from his obituary: "Sadly, Vic passed away surrounded by family, due to complications from Alzheimer's disease. Victor was born in Swissvale, Pennsylvania, the youngest of 4 children, ...

Re: 2019 Grey Cup Game Day Thread

Is it just me or does anybody else get the impression that ZLions lost a big bet on the Ticats? :tease: Since when is it wrong for a coach to smile "from time to time". Maybe the context behind one of those irksome smiles was when Steinauer got the news that Banks was done for the game, an...

Re: DeVone Claybrooks fired

* I wonder how much input Reilly will be given? I don't think Maas is in the mix BTW as he's too volatile, despite his Edmonton connections. I am sure he is a decent guy in the off-season, but head coaching is about 'image.' Those extreme in-game temper-tantrums reflect badly on organization and br...

Re: Who Will Be Lions Backup QB Next Year

I chose Bridge, mostly because I like the idea of a Canadian QB, but also because of his potential. Yes, he has been tried and rejected by other teams, but keep in mind that during his time in Sask he played whenever Chris Jones wanted to shake things up a little. Most defensive genius types have li...

Re: Hamilton at B.C. Aug. 24, 2019 - Post Game Thread

The coaching salary cap handcuffs Hervey. He could fire a coach, but would be prevented from hiring a replacement by the cap, so we would just be without a coach. Heed those wise words above and be careful what you wish for. With his hands tied by the SMS, Hervey might decide to shuffle the deck ch...

Re: 2019 All Things Lions Marketing & Promotions

Cybulski and Solkowski suggested this morning (in the 8:00 hour) that in 10 years, we may not be watching sporting events at BC Place any longer. That stadium could be torn down and a smaller outdoor stadium built in its place as the footprint, or "Hastings Park" would be a very attractiv...

Re: Lions at Riders July 20, 2019 - Game Day Thread

With a bye coming up after next week, I'd be all in favour of sticking Reilly on the 1-game injured list so he'd have 2 weeks off to heal up, but since we have nobody who resembles a competent backup QB on the roster that would be futile. When I look down the roster here's what I see: Danny O'Brien,...

Re: Chris O'Leary of cfl.ca -- "Who will succeed Buono in B.C.?"

What's Dan Hawkins doing these days? :tease:

Oh wait, Kavis Reed probably has him penciled in for a return to the Alouettes. I could picture Reed pulling a Roger Neilson thing and have Hawkins wear a bag over his head on the sidelines. :dizzy:

Re: Lions 42 - Eskimos 32, Post-Game Stats and Comments

Here's a "post-game comment" (so to speak) that's apparently going viral at the expense of our #4. Had I been that EE player (Duke W. I think) I would have wished to do the very same! Garry Peters deserved all he got right there and then. I note that the score at that moment reads 22--38,...

I think Joel Figueroa deserves a ton of respect for his efforts last night. :thup: :thup: :thup: I was at the game (the only time I left my seat was while the video review was under way to visit the restroom! Ahhh!) so I didn't have the benefit of isolation replays etc so I only saw bits of his work...
