Drew Tate is an assclown.

And I agree, I won't be watching the Grey Cup. I can't stand both the Argos and the Stamps. But hey, Justin Bieber is the halftime show, they get to listen to that crap. Mind you, last year was Nickelback..

Lulay looks for him and Bruce so much that he doesn't look anywhere else. The games where they were out were some of Lulays best games in the CFL.

Just kinda taunted the crowd and pulled the old Hulk Hogan "I can't hear you" move. Like he made an impact on the game.

Chapdelaine should have been gone years ago or not have come back after the first time he left BC.

Hearing Drew Tate talk you can immediately tell he's not the sharpest knife in the drawer.

I mean who says stuff like "I got hit, I don't remember anything from the first half" when there's growing concern around football with playing with concussions?

He's your typical frat bro. Nothing to get riled up about.

He's honest he does not care if he's politically correct or not.If your worried about concussions don't play contact sports.Friends of mine are in the military their parents are proud of their choices.Other parents want their kids to be teachers or scientists thats their choices.I don't need gov't telling me what to do.If injury or violence turns you off don't watch contact sports

Rookie coach is a rookie coach

Lulay hasn't played a meaningful down since October 12 vrs Hamilton when he got hurt.
So that's 6 weeks of inactivity and he's bound to be rusty, his timing off, and energy low.
The coaching staff should of known this, and should of inserted Reilly in when Travis was obviously struggling.
Lulay's deep ball was nonexistent than usual, so his shoulder was obviously still bummed.

Same goes for Bruce and Geroy to a certain extent, rusty, creaky, and old.

But then, there's no excuse for the defence...

yo this might not be politically correct but you should just listen to the teachers and scientists and stop having opinions because they're awful

edit: sucks that the lions played bad but to be honest its kinda payback for what was pretty much the coolest sports season that i ever got to watch last year. no team can win them all and a cup + semis is pretty sweet for back to back years even in an 8 team league

To sum it up, Lions played like absolute ****, Stamps played like all-stars.

Chapdelaine needs be fired, but Wally will never be able to bring himself to do it. The play calling was absolutely atrocious. Short passes on 2nd and long, and yet again, ZERO running in a Western Final even though we have a more than capable running back (Joe Smith from 2007 says hi).

Dave Dickenson showed Wally Buono why he should have hired him. Completely out-coached Rich Stubler.

If Simon and Bruce are 100% healthy, bring them back. Bruce is under contract through next year, I believe. Simon will be an FA, would probably take a reasonable pay-cut, as Shawn Gore will likely be the #1 slotback.

I'd love to hear who would take over for Lulay. His stats over 15.5 games speak for himself. Mike Reilly is not proven.

Elimimian did not look good since coming back, but that seems to be the trend amongst NFL cuts.

Where the **** was Courtney Taylor? Not that it would have mattered though. Chapdelaine wasn't calling for passes over 15 yards.

Defense? Mother of God.

This except for inserting Reilly.

This. The first series bomb to a receiver who didn't have a db within 20 yards of him was a harbinger of things to come. Eeurgh. So bad.

SO bad.

I don't think the Lions have put in any effort since they clinched first place in the West. I really think they needed to wake up for this game, but they didn't. It's sad.

I do believe that a lot of these players will keep this game in mind and will learn the tough lesson that you need to keep your competitiveness up in order to compete in games, even when you're the better team.

The Lions playoff performance this year reminded me of the Canucks playoff performance last year; cost to the playoffs, only to get burnt badly. More evidence, although different sport, that coasting to the playoffs with no emotion/lacklustre play, and then thinking you can all of a sudden amp up your intensity, doesn't work out quite as well as some think.

Got chills for the second time watching them raise the Grey Cup. First time I've had one of my favorite teams win a chamionship.

I think TSN does a great job portraying the history of the Grey Cup. Even though BC isn't in the Grey Cup ill still watch. It's a Canadian icon.

My god. Watching this ceremony makes me thankful the Lions aren't playing.

This is eerily reminiscent of WWF when I was eight years old.
CFL players combined IQ is probably equivalent of mine, at that age.

The cheesiest thing I've ever seen in sports.

Amazing what can happen when you throw the ball deep and let your running back actually run with the ball.
