Re: 2021 CFL free agency

Brett Boyko has signed with Saskatchewan. He didn't fit in as a starter in B.C. I hope things work out better for him with the Riders.

Re: 2021 CFL free agency

Former B.C. receiver Ricky Collins Jr., who had a career high 1,103 receiving yards for Edmonton in 2019, has announced his retirement. That's a pretty clear sign that the free-agent market has dried up. Only 3 players on the CFL's official list of 2021 free agents have been signed in the past 10 da...

Re: Randy Ambrosie optimistic about 2021

The CFL and CFLPA plan to submit their return-to-play plan for government approval by the end of this week. Here's a pretty good assessment by The Canadian Press of the league's chances of getting the season started.

CFL will have to appease more levels of government to get 2021 protocols approved

Re: 2021 schedule

I believe Ambrosie and most league and team staff took a pay cut of at least 20%. I love some of things Ambrosie has done to transform the league and expand its vision. I just wish he were more transparent in telling fans exactly what has been done and what is planned. He and others have all said th...

I don't think a CFL draft date has been announced. The Global draft is scheduled for April 15.

Re: 2021 schedule

In addition to an improving vaccine timeline, there's new medical research in the U.S. that purports to show that NFL and NCAA football games that allowed limited attendance with social distancing did not lead to increases in local COVID cases. The Effect of NFL and NCAA Football Games on the Spread...

Re: Randy Ambrosie optimistic about 2021

Rock LeLacheur addressed the return to play plans in a Zoom town hall meeting with season ticketholders on Tuesday. (There also was lots of other interesting football talk from Rick Campbell, Neil McEvoy and Mike Reilly. See link below.) LeLacheur said the plan is to play an 18-game season even if t...

Re: 3DownNation says 2021 Season May Not Happen

The Riders lost money in 2019 and expected to use up all of their stabilization fund of $7.6 million in 2020, and that was before the season was cancelled.

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

Not to take anything away from Solly but his stats exploded in 2014 when Mark Washington took over as B.C. defensive coordinator and ran a scheme that left the middle linebacker free to flow to the ball and rack up a huge number of tackles. In five of the past six seasons in B.C. and Hamilton, the m...

Re: 3DownNation says 2021 Season May Not Happen

Hope the owners realize wiping out the entire 2021 season simply can't happen. Even if it's a 9-game season starting in September so be it. The optics would look horrible especially given the millions upon millions being lost by the MLS with a TV deal that is not as lucrative to the league as a 9-t...

Re: 2021 CFL free agency

The Lions have released OL Brett Boyko. He struggled at tackle and guard in 2019. He said then that he preferred to play left guard but Hunter Steward appears to have that position locked up. Boyko may not have fit into the Lions' salary cap as a backup.

Re: 3DownNation says 2021 Season May Not Happen

This is a blatantly scalped version of an Edmonton Sun story that was based only on idle speculation from an anonymous source. He seems to suggest that the Eskimos have pared their staff to the bone and the rest of the league might be better off to do the same this year and plan for a return to play...

Re: 2021 CFL free agency

The Argos have added Odell Willis to a defensive line rotation that already includes veteran acquisitions Charleston Hughes and Cordarro Law.
