3DownNation says 2021 Season May Not Happen

https://3downnation.com/2021/02/12/2021-cfl-season-may-not-be-plausible-league-could-look-to-2022-report/ 3DownNation reporting that sources close to league executives are saying the 2021 season may not be plausible. No season would surely be the final nail in Ambrosie's coffin. While no one can con...

Re: 2021 CFL free agency

Micah Awe is one ex-Lion I would have loved to have seen return. Scratching my head at TO signing Odell Willis. He was clearly beyond his best before date in 2019 and I doubt he's going to be any better 2 years later. Maybe they picked him up cheap and will use him in limited situations?

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

There is an opportunity for Sportsnet 650 to step up their game, if they want. There is suddenly a lot of good on-air talent available that would bring a loyal audience, if 650 acts quickly. To be brutally honest, much of the on-air roster at 650 is weak compared to what 1040 had. Now will 650 seize...

Re: 2021 CFL free agency

So IF Ottawa releases Arbuckle today, who might get burned in all this is Toronto. Nichols will sign in Ottawa for less than Arbuckle was going to make, while Toronto won't have the SMS room to sign Arbuckle. Not sure about the Argos not having SMS room. They were trying to get Nichols to take a ha...

Re: 2021 CFL free agency

3DownNation reporting that Matt Nichols has been released by the Argos. He was due a $220,000 roster bonus tomorrow. This looks to me like the Argos are hedging their bets in case there is no 2021 season. If there is a season, they can sign Nichols later (if he is still available) if he will agree t...

Simulated CFL Games

Is anyone else watching Rod Pederson doing live simulated CFL games? It's awesome! I had to bust his ass a bit by sending him a comment that I can't wait until he calls a game at SIM BC Place because it will be the first time he was correct about fake crowd noise. He read it on the broadcast and rep...

Re: Eskimos: change your name

When I was in elementary school we were taught about the Eskimos (people, not team). We watched Nanook of the North and other National FIlm Board of Canada documentaries about Eskimos. We learned about kyaks, seal hunting, and blubber. As kids we were fascinated by these exotic people known as Eskim...

Re: Week 3

The PxP job Pederson did was amazing. Normally I would not watch someone play a video game, but I could not stop watching this one. If you were only listening you would have no idea it wasn't a real game.

Re: COVID-19 : How it could impact Lions/CFL

I don't understand why everyone assumes that a hub city scenario means the teams pick up the costs for food and housing for the season. When a player from Anywhere USA gets signed by the BC Lions he has to find and pay for his own housing in Vancouver because that's where his job is based. So if eve...

Re: COVID-19 : How it could impact Lions/CFL

If the CFL is able to get a partial season going, then the idea of playing in the home stadium of one of the GC finalists in a sound idea, with less of a need for hotels and partying and just a physical distancing Game Day. I think the CFL is dangling that idea of playing the Grey Cup in the home s...

Re: Good and Bad BC Lions Season Commercials and Campaigns

One inexpensive advertising approach I'd like to see is fan testimonials. Interviewing enthusiastic fans about why they go to Lions games or what they love about the team. Maybe longtime season ticket holders - ask them what it means to be a season ticket holder. The Canucks have done this with gre...

Re: Passaglia vs Cameron

Let me start by saying Lui is my favourite BC Lion of all time. But thanks to the story book finish in 1994 we tend to forget that Lui didn't have a great game. His punting was mediocre giving Baltimore a short field for most of the game, and he missed a 37 yard FG with just over 1 minute left in a ...

Re: why is CFL interest so tepid in toronto?

I know there is a lot of preference to get the season started earlier in June to avoid playing too late into November, but I'd kick off the CFL season on the Canada Day Weekend every year. With pre-game pancake breakfast or BBQ and live music, a kids carnival of some sort, and a half time ceremony t...
