Re: Ed Hervey leaves Lions for "personal reasons"

Welcome back Blitz.

I always wavered back and forth between things that I liked about how Wally did things, and things that I didn't like. I felt the same way about Hervey.

So Wally is retired and Hervey is gone. I am not unhappy.

Re: why is CFL interest so tepid in toronto?

I prefer to see the current highly talented CFL rosters with a Canadian player component vs a downgraded less talented, less entertaining heavily Canadianized roster.

Re: why is CFL interest so tepid in toronto?

the league needs to fix toronto, BC and montreal....... wondering if MLSE might want some sort of beach-head in BC, montreal...... will the league be more canadian after a government bailout? The league is moving towards being less Canadian and should think about that aspect as well imo. Not only w...

The CFL's best home is that the vaccine is widely distributed by mid June or July so they can get fans in the stands, otherwise......

Re: Ed Hervey leaves Lions for "personal reasons"

I am not all that sad about Hervey's departure. I wish him well and hope everything is OK, but I have always been up and down about whether I like him as a GM going back to when he first started with the Esks.

Re: Speculation is over. No season in 2020.

There's a huge difference in the number of players who have opted out for each team: SSK 25 CGY 14 HAM 14 WPG 9 OTT 9 TOR 7 BCL 5 EDM 5 MTL 2 I suspect that most of these players will return to the CFL but it does seem odd that so many Riders players opted out. 25 players, its like a entire startin...

Re: Speculation is over. No season in 2020.

Catching on in the NFL for a CFLer has always been about being at the right team when an injury opens up a roster spot combined with not having to compete with a less talented but high paid draft pick. And now Covid makes it even trickier.

Re: Speculation is over. No season in 2020.

I didn't agree with signing Reilly in 2019 for what he was paid (maybe the 2015 version, with a few years less hard mileage on him though would have been worth it). I doubt Wally would have signed him for that price if he had still been in charge of BC in 2019. I agree 100%. I would have paid good ...

Re: Speculation is over. No season in 2020.

MBT going to free agency is a big one. I liked what I saw from him last year. Like him better than Mike Reilly to be honest. Believe most opt outs were one year deals with Ricky Collins being an exception. His deal requires him to go back to Edmonton if he doesn't make the NFL. CFL didn't really co...

Re: TSN all-time Lions team

I am not the guy to research it, but it would be interesting to come up with an all time team based on who had the most number of all star selections at each position.
