Re: Thoughts on Ex-Lions winning the Grey Cup

I could see feeling good for a long serving Lion who won the cup with another team. If he had been a good team player active in the community , at the end of his career (last hurrah) and never had a chance to play for a contender. That however rules out all the current Lions so the question is reall...

Re: Marc Boerigter now available to Lions

I think that ship has sailed. Not sure he fits in the system any longer. Would be nice to pick up a deep threat.

Re: Kickoff Kicker

I think more than just the distance the ball travels it comes down to where the opposition ends up scrimmaging the ball after the kickoff. Accuracy and not out kicking coverage are other key factors. Having said that, we do tend to give pretty good field position but is it the depth of the kick ,or ...

Re: Jolly Good Sport

Kind of cool to have the Raider, I mean Rider Nation, line the Red, I mean Green Mile, in honour of America's, I mean Canada's team. Seriously it is good to see some folks having some fun with the CFL and not taking themselves too seriously.

Re: Miller takes the job as Roughriders' Head Coach

Can't say I am loosing any sleep thinking about the Riders coaching situation. The old one left for greener pastures (pun intended) and they promoted within their organization .The new guy will either be another Hero (Kent) or a Goat(Danny), seems there is no in between. At the end of the day I thin...

Re: NFL-Bills-Toronto DETAILS

It makes no sense for the Bills to play in Toronto, certainly not for a small number of games each year. Wouldn't be surprised to find this is a ploy to put presure on Buffalo fans to buy tickets to "save the team". I personally think Toronto is just being used as a bargaining chip.

Re: NFL Foray into Canada will doom CFL, says Bobby Ackles

Sad part of all of this will be seperating the wheat from the chaff in the upcomming year. The spin and hysteria will be exploited to the max. Potential Canadian franchises will be screaming for government built stadiums to stem the American invasion and the Bills will be using this to muster more A...

Re: Jackson agrees to terms with Lions - CKNW

Glad to see they signed him but I still think JJ will have a tough time being #1. He still seems to have trouble making the quick reads, but there is no doubt he is a good athlete and could become great QB once he consistently makes quick, sound decisions. At times this year though he seemed indecis...

Re: Chapdelaine Might be More than Receivers Coach for Lions

I found his offence predictable and frankly never cared for him last time he was here. Also I have to question his commitment to the team. Was the problem last year with the OC or the lack of Buck and Dave?

Re: Dickenson offered contract from Argos - CKNW

Good luck to Dave he served us pretty well. Hope he considers his longterm health ahead of a few more years of playing though. If he goes to TO he might just end up staying in the game too long like DA
