Re: Adam Nicolson released by the Lions

The CFL has never had a hard cap SMS before and it does make the league more business like and therefore more hard nosed. Just like the real world.

Re: BC/Sask football double-header!

The three hour wait between games is stupid. I am coming over from the Island (bought the tickets months ago so the ticket combo pack discount is not available) and would need to catch a 7am ferry to make it to the noon game. Instead I'll catch a 1pm or 3pm ferry and just go to the Lions game. IMO t...

As far as FD45 goes I enjoy laughing at him, not with him.

Re: Lifting our Lion Spirits just took on a whole new look.

I'm normally not a drinker except special occasions, but I will have to get a case of BC Beer to go with my box of Flutie Flakes.http://lionbackers.com/bc_lions/posting ... =2&t=15816#

Re: Smith should have been gone two weeks ago - how much longer?

Get Joe and Stefan on the field at the same time by making Stefan the 4th receiver. With all the backfield motion allowed in the CFL lining him up all over the place and moving him all over the place before the snap of the ball should drive defenses crazy. However this is too progressive for the con...

Re: Monday, Team 1040 - avec Geroy co-hosting

While the player roster is very similar to last year, the biggest difference this year is the coaching staff. Last year Special Teams and that Dave Ritchie Defense consistently gave the O a short field. I think the coaching needs to improve and unfortunately this Friday they are going against one of...

Re: scoring question

I was at a playoff game in Hamilton in the Sixties, Ticats and Argos were tied with seconds left. Argos attempted a FG and it went wide. TiCats had their punter and back up punter, quarterback (who could punt) and the field goal kicker in the end zone. When the kick went wide, the TiCat player got t...

Re: The Time Has Come..

The Als, during their by week, started out going over the game plan for the Lions, then got some time off. So they had something to think about during their rest week before starting full practices for the week prior to meeting the Lions this Friday and I expect that the Lions could be in big troubl...

Re: The Time Has Come..

When the season is over, I'd like to see Wally become President and GM and hire Ritchie as Head Coach. If Ritchie doesn't want to come out of retirement, then hire Ritchie Hall away from Sask.

Re: Lions playbook stolen in break-in

Very unpro to have no back up! Guess they will have to run a very limited number of different plays and formations... wait they already do that so I guess its business as usual.

Does the visiting team get a share of the gate?

I know that in the NFL the gate is split 60/40 and the home team gets 100% of the luxury box revenue. How does it work in the CFL, NHL, NBA, MLB?

Re: Glen Suitor has Joe Smith traded to Argos

I've heard estimates of Smith's salary as being between 130k and 200k. In any case it would mean that any team trading for Smith would need to have a lot of cap space or need to trade someone to the Lions who has a high salary. I thinks JS stays with the Lions and Argos, Esks, etc. go to NFL cuts fo...

Re: QB controversy in Winnipeg?

Bombers should get rid of Berry but he has 3 years left on his contract so he says.
