Re: Why is Mervyn Fernadez not in the CFL Hall of Fame?

I think Warren Moon played 5 seasons then went to NFL, just the same as Fernandez. And Moon was a back up for his first year.

Why is Mervyn Fernadez not in the CFL Hall of Fame?

Swervin Mervyn made the TSN 50 greatest CFL players list of a few years ago but I think he was the only one on that list that was not a hall of famer.

Re: Leos/Evil Empire Post-Game Thoughts!!

IMO the two week break is the time to convert Logan into a pass receiver. As I recall, Pinball Clements started out as a KR and backup RB but in order to get of the field full time he had to learn how to run patterns and catch the ball more.

Re: Matt Dominguez

MD reminds me a lot of Tony Simmons, big, fast receiver capable of dominating a game, but never quite gets the chance to really shine due to successive season ending injuries.

Re: Geroy the Difference

In the mid 60's, when Jim Young was with the Vikings, in the off season he was a substitute teacher at Westdale High School in Hamilton. When he crossed his arms (which bulged his biceps) and he said, " There will be no going to lockers, no going to the washroom and no talking", the class ...

Re: Hope the Lions are watching [email protected]

Als gave the game away with the double botched kick return, followed by the interception play where I thought AC was going to tuck the ball away and get a few positive yards.

Re: Geroy the Difference

Early in the game, after Simon dropped what should have been a catch, the TSN guy ( think it was Suiter) said that Simon is likely to have an exceptional game as make up for the dropped ball and he was right.

Re: To the Lions...

While Wally is usually not the best at speaking to the press, I thought his speech was the best of the evening and a fitting close to the ceremonies.

Re: Eric Tillman to sign extension with the Riders

This contract extension for Tillman is great news for Riders and the CFL. Tillman has a lot of NFL contacts and pretty good media savvy and a lot of football passion. With the passing of Bob Ackles it may end up that Tillman picks up the torch and becomes a leader in helping keep an NFL team out of ...

Re: Sask vs. Hamilton

Sask did not fumble the ball thru the Sask end zone, it was fumbled thru the Cats end zone, so no safety. When a ball carrier fumbles the ball out of bounds, if no one touches it after it leaves the ball carrier's hands, then the ball belongs to the ball carrier and not the guy causing the fumble. I...

Re: Bob Ackles memorial plans set

Chimpy you are in the wrong venue here as you are speaking to the converted. You should be contacting the casual fan by phoning radio talk shows and writing to newspaper's Letters to the Editor.

Re: Congrats to the Riders...

Much ado about nothing....fans get worked up over this....thats all. And especially Rider fans. Especially Rider fans. Is it a lack of maturity by rider fans or is it extremism? The posters on Rider forums seem a lot more about vilification and hyperbole and a lot less about football analysis and a...
