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

"Not enough indisputable video evidence to overturn an officials on field call" is the gigantic Command Centre cop out. In this case it makes the CC and therefore the CFL look weak and indecisive with a dash of homerism and fear of angering hometown fans. :thdn: :thdn: :thdn: The Command ...

Re: Leos/Red Blacks Post Game Thoughts

To keep things in perspective while discussing Richie Leone , it may be worth comparing his stats to not only other kickers in the the league but also kickers of the past . A good example would be None other than Lui Passaglia who had a career average of approximately 77% on field goals . His first...

Re: Stampeder Shot

Absolutely unbelievable that something so shameful, so disgusting would happen in this country. Horrible.

Re: Leos sign FA receiver Terrell Sinkfield

I generally like 2 pt converts except in obvious situations. I just don't care for the common practice of running the back up guy in to execute them. But those stats are interesting. I note that Oregon is big on 2 point converts. Apparently they're 4-11 so far. Not great.

Re: Leos sign FA receiver Terrell Sinkfield

I still don't like putting in a cold quarterback for the two point convert, after the starting quarterback has led the offence for a drive for a game opening touchdown. I agree. I HATE it. It's one of those things that all CFL coaches seem to be locked into. I get that they've got a "package&q...

Re: Leos Take On the Als!

And consider that Fraser had a 43-yard interception return! That's how pissed Wally was at the pass interference call that turned a certain field goal attempt into an eventual TD. DH :cool: If that's the measure, then Buono should have sat JJ for the 2 egregious turnovers late in the game. Or himse...

The band will be available because the Huskies play Stanford at home on the Friday evening (September 30). It'll be a quick turnaround for them, but I'm hoping to do the same!

Re: 2016 CFL Thread

Two wildly entertaining games that the league needs plenty more of. Passing numbers of the 4 QBs tonight: 368, 396, 317 and 378. Take note Khari Jones. Lions haven't thrown for over 300 yards in 1 game since early October of last season. We were out at a casual pub for dinner at the time (not our c...

Re: Argos vs. Lions Game Day Thread

Roughing the passer. Very questionable call Outrageous call. Brilliantly called and executed blitz ruined by wildly overzealous, boneheaded officiating for RTP and an equally ludicrous denial of the correct call on Buono's part to challenge. At that point I stopped watching. A joke. An absolute jok...

Re: 2016 All Things Lions Marketing & Promotions

Pretty small crowd will be at BC Place tonight. Sad considering it is a grey and drizzly summer night and they're playing in a world class indoor/outdoor stadium. Couldn't the Lions come up with anything creative for this Thursday night tilt ? Tickets are just simply too expensive to attract the fa...

Re: Bob Ackles Anniversary

It's been 8 years and we still haven't gotten around to naming the playing surface (for Lions games) "Bobby Ackles Field at BC Place".

Shameful, IMO.

Re the blocked punts ... Amateur hour. Yes, easily fixed at half time. Then why not well prepared in TC and preseason and practice? This kind of schmozzle does not happen to the best prepared groups.

Re: New BC Lions Jersey for 2016

the season ticket package included the new helmet car decal. Hated the nameplate when the jerseys came out. Just make your name font smaller or thinner. Now i've come to the conclusion that they didn't screw up and it is done on purpose to make every players cut jersey look the same. Other teams ha...
