Re: Jeff Tedford a Head Coach again

From a couple of players that I talked to (confidentially) that played on the 2015 (neither of whom is on the the 2016 team), Tedford was not at all popular. One told me he didn't come clean with his relegation from his starter's job. Didn't/wouldnt talk to him about it. The other told me that Tedf...

Re: Stampeders 42 - Lions 15, WDF Post Game Comments

* The TSN turning point came at the 1:00 mark of the opening quarter. Down by only 8-0, Leone hemmed the Stamps deep with a booming punt. On the ensuing play, a handoff to Messam, he gets stuffed at the LOS, causing 2nd down from the 2 yard line. From there Bow Legged Mitchell, the new sheriff in t...

Re: Stampeders 42 - Lions 15, WDF Post Game Comments

I have the same frustration on the Marketing side of things. Do I blame Skulsky and the Marketing Department for some obvious oversights, or is it really David Braley who's not allowing them to execute a smart plan and/or not providing them the necessary resources? DH :cool: I get that it's not dif...

Re: WFC Final Lions vs. Stampeders Game Day Thread

Hard to know why they go through a wall for him when he constantly throws them under the bus like that. Heck, even Farhan Lalji said they were out-coached this afternoon. Sure, execution is part of it, but there was a lot of confusion from stuff the Stamps were throwing at us that we'd never seen b...

I say you have to include the playoff games in the overall record. I say they were 13-7 this season.

Re: Leos/Bombers Semi-Final Post Game Thoughts

What's with all that advertising on the field for yesterday's game. Not there during the regular season. Due to travel I wasn't able to attend the game in person or even watch it in real time. Finally ran through my DVRed recording a day or two ago. To say my eyes popped out with disgust at the sig...

Re: Jeff Tedford a Head Coach again

Everything I know is that Tedford is the one who really liked what he saw in Jennings and also worked with Jennings a lot last season. Tedford is going to receive about 1.5 million per season. Bet that is about 5 times or more what he was getting as a Leo HC. Its probably three times more than what...

Re: Why I Love the CFL

I rather watch college football than the NFL. Far more entertaining. Too many timeouts for my liking. Agreed. My football binge-watching happens on Saturday. With my sat dish and about 40-50 CFB games from 9 am til about 11:30 pm, throw in usually 1 or 2 CFL games and a CIS game (I'm not calling it...

Re: 2016 All Things Lions Marketing & Promotions

I go down for Washington Huskies games every year, and they get started at 6am. At the very least, the Lions should have this open for 2.5 hours prior to kickoff. Do the Huskies still play on campus at Husky Stadium? Several years ago the tailgating had to start early because once you were in the s...

Re: Lions popularity and coverage is heating up all across c

'It's like I said' ;}, just throwing it out there, trying to think outside the box. Any other ideas to attract and grow a younger and larger audience to CFL home games? By "younger" I assume you're meaning <55 or so. Yes, allow real tailgating. Get rid of the arcane, ridiculous old prohib...

Quite the battle going on back east between Ottawa and Hamilton. Entertaining game, but time to he ad down to BC Place! Seems like the storm has cleared or at least we are in the eye of it... See you at the game! Roar! More controversy on a fumble, very similar to last week. Took an easy way out an...

Re: CFL under fire for blown call....

The Lions and Bombers played an exciting, back and forth, high scoring game with lots of offence and big plays. Players make mistakes on every play. Those mistakes add up to points scored and points given up, and they determine the outcome of a game. The Lions made lots of mistakes on Saturday, got...

Re: CFL under fire for blown call....

Officials make mistakes and I can accept that. But they had time to review it and clearly see that it was a fumble and they still get it wrong. I don't understand. This just gives more ammo to the bashers to call CFL bush. Exactly. When the call came down, at that instant I turned to my wife and sa...
