Re: Happy new year to all Lions Fans

Helped a friend move into a new apartment last night and she got to wake up and start the New Year in a gorgeous 10 floor studio apartment. She can see Lions Gate Bridge to Queen E Park skyline from her windows..... :beer: All the best to all Lionbackers in 2015. Lets hope we have to spend lots of m...

Re: Closing Franchise Businesses in the Lower Mainland

Wow, old thread. Started 6 years ago. I guess another recent chain to be disappearing will be Safeway. That one stings a little bit. Been a fixture here my entire life. I grew up in East Van, so in terms of BIG grocery stores....SAFEWAY was it. I didn't know IGA, Save-ON etc... existed. what about ...

Re: Riders reportedly offer Mike Benevides DC position

If he decides to take it.... I'll be happy for Benevides. Sure will be weird seeing him in green :dizzy:

As for KJ... Not the first time its happened but it woulda been different seeing a previous Lions OC (Chaps) working with the guy who replaced him (KJ)......

Re: Official NFL Thread: 2014-2015 Season

Read on-line (NFL.com, IIRC) Coughlin will be back for 2015.... Garrett will be fine. I just don't understand why he's gotten some chances his predecessor didn't. A solid Oline and good performance by Romo has led them to the playoffs. Next season? Not so sure. Giants and Eagles don't have MUCH work...

Re: CFL websites BC Lions rewind....

Even though I got a free ticket out of the deal.... my low-light of the season was probably watching the Riders beat the Lions on my birthday during 'Guaranteed Win Night'......

Or maybe the playoff loss...

Re: Official NFL Thread: 2014-2015 Season

Rex Ryan, Mike Smith and Mark Trestman...given their papers.... 49ers deciding it was them and not Harbaugh. Is it proper to contemplate others? Probably not but I'll do it anyways. One coach I really respect but think has probably reached his end is Tom Coughlin. A coach wins you TWO Superbowls inc...

Re: Official NFL Thread: 2014-2015 Season

Well it looks as though it takes a different skill set to succeed as an NFL HC than a CFL HC. ... Definately true, IMO, at this time .... The goofiness, IMO, of the later versions of Vermiel and Pete C. WORKS but it wouldn't always. The strictness of a Parcells or a Ditka, also WORKs but not always...

Re: Trestman out as Head Coach of the Chicago Bears

This morning I thought Trestman MAY have escaped the firing. I heard the GM was canned first and the speculation was 'who knows' for Trestman this morning on NFL network. Soon thereafter, Mike Smith and Trestman got their walking papers. :dizzy: For the pundits out there today is known as 'Black Mon...

Re: Closing Franchise Businesses in the Lower Mainland

My favourite cheapo chain store has apparently bit the dust..... XS CARGO Bought a steamcleaner there for $9.99. Most of XS CARGO's inventory was overstocks or refurbished stuff, I believe. But that steam cleaner WORKED WONDERS. Certainly got more than my ten bucks out of it. Priced out some new ste...
