Also celebrating like you've won the Grey Cup after game 3 of the regular season? I found that incredibly dumb and will hopefully fire the Lions up that much more for the next time they play them. But those new Riders unis are still so laughably bad that even when they win they still look like losers. lol
Not that I like the riders, but the lions uniforms are by far the ugliest in the entire league.

Only 8 carries for Harris? Jesus ****ing Christ, Jacques. He's a 1000 yard Canadian running back if you give him at least 15 carries a game.

Also Chuck McMann needs to be put on notice. Our return defense is flat out not acceptable.

Agreed. I'd also like to see a few more short passes to Harris as that play seems to be absolutely deadly. A few screen passes tossed in here or there will keep the defense honest. Maybe a reverse also?

The special teams needs a huge overhaul.

Obviously we all still get frustrated with some calls, but that happens in every major sport and in every league. I think that reviewed plays have helped bring accountability and the results are clear. Thoughts?
I agree. It's been getting better. Pass interference is still a bit dodgy, but even has been better. Durant used to live on those calls.

Was Harris even thrown a screen vs. Sask? I had to stream the audio on my phone at work so I tuning in and out.

I agree! They look like a woman's yoga outfit. They need to go back to black being the base color. I'd like something I feel good wearing on any day of the week and the current Lions jersey is far from that.

Well for what it's worth - the 100th Grey Cup this year should be in Regina and not Toronto. I think that's a joke. It should be in a place where people care about the CFL and no one cares more than the folks in Sask.

It's because it's the only thing they have. Manitobans care a lot about our Bombers too.

Not bad for a city of 200,000. Not too many North American municipalities that have a professional sports team!

Would be great if it was in Regina this year. I understand why it's in Toronto though.

Nope. We seemed to have reverted back to vanilla chapball a bit

I do too, but I see so many people from Toronto diss the CFL that it seems very undeserved to have it there. I honestly think that few of them care. Saskatchewan on the other hand would throw a party to end all parties. The people who care the most should take precedent over those who care little.

I agree. Thing is NFL hasn't even been successful there, so not sure what the expectation is. CFL needs to be successful in Toronto again, but how do we get there?

The Argos need to be consistently competitive year in and year out. They are getting better but the past number of years have been tough. They also need to do more outreach into the community and draw more of the younger generation in. Outside of the 35+ generation there is absolutely no CFL interest... and this goes for most of the CFL cities. You never see jersey's at the high schools and never hear the kids talking about the CFL. I think the CFL needs to seriously sit down and look at their ticket structure and make it more of a family friendly event again so they can get the youngsters excited and interested in the league again. It used to be an event that everyone could go to when ever they wanted to, now families flat out can't afford to go or they have to plan for it. A family of 4 use to be able to get to a game for $100 with 4 drinks and 4 dogs included. Now just getting in is around $200 for the cheapest sections. That is ridiculous. Not enough is being done to draw in the youngsters and that is why the CFL is suffering in T.O. The CFL isn't the hip thing to be at or do. Get the families into the stadiums and get these youngsters hooked on the CFL. Then watch as they get older and more and more young kids are fans and it becomes the "in thing". Just my opinion of course.

The Lions have been taking a lot of heat in the past week or so over their ticket prices. Tom Mayenknecht ripped them to pieces over it on the Sport Market on Saturday. They're going to be playing to 25,000 people every night if they don't do something about it, and that's a far cry from the average for 35-40k they were predicting when the roof was being built. IMO, they should start selling Groupons. It's helped the C's build their brand, and now every game on a Friday, Saturday or Sunday (weather depending) is or is nearly sold out.

Going to the game on Friday. What's the best place to grab a bite and a pint of good, craft beer near the stadium? I'm thinking maybe the Yaletown Brewpub. Any other ideas?

I was at the Stamps game tonight. Stamps were down throughout the game, but mounted a come back to win in OT.

What an awesome game to be at. The game and the fans were all first class. Love this league so much. No lead is safe.

Whitecaps have stolen a ton of interest from the lions.

How do I know this?, well, it certainly has took my interest away from the lions, so I can't be the only one.
