TSN not working for anybody else outside the lower mainland? Did somebody screw up and black out the whole province?

Andrew Harris has really impressed me. Such a strong runner and breaking tackles like a bawse.

They dun goofed. Big time.

Try having a good experience at a Lions game with a friend for less than a $100 bucks. They've driven the families away.

Looks like they've blacked out TSN SD. TSN HD however is still open. Sucks for all those non-HD viewers.

Harris is a beast!

Yup, not working here in Victoria. My family says they have it up-Island, though.

It's a damn shame. Wally has put a great product on the field. They need an economical option for fans.

The only team in town that people will empty their pockets for in Vancouver is for the Canucks.

The Lions can expect crappy attendance until they realize not many people are willing to pay $38-45 for a single endzone seat.

Nice to see them using Harris more tonight. Have no idea what Lulay was thinking on that last pass.

It's not the prices that are the problem
If people want to go, they'll go

What WallyWorld did was leave BC Place seating capacity at 50,000, as both levels are open
So they need to sell at least 90% or so of capacity (45,000 tickets) for the blackout to be automatically lifted

If they close off the 2nd level, like they did before the renovations, then sellout would be around 27,000
Then the blackouts would be automatically lifted as they should be able to sell 25,000 or so tickets

The Whitecaps, for instance, has the 2nd level completely closed off so a sellout for them is around 22,000

Wally needs to take marketing lessons from Lenarduzzi

Upper bowl end zone. The lower end zone is pretty full. The lower corners are poorly priced.

1st half down. I still see a lot of mistakes by BC. BC could be such a dominate team if they can simplify their game. Harris is a franchise type player. Love that kid more and more every game.

There are a few lower bowl endzone sections that are only half full.

Also, in 2009, the 7-11 ticekts were 2 for $42 + tax. Now, it's 2 for $76, but only in the upper bowl.

It'd be nice to see a few possessions that start outside the 20.

Some pretty cheap prices on Craigslist. Might try a scalper the next game I can get to and make an offer after kickoff. Might even have money left over for a beer!

When did Collins learn to catch?

Yep. Last year he was overshadowed by Jerome Messam and Jon Cornish.

This year Harris has looked better while Cornish has struggled as a starter.

i always though perfect size should be about 40-45,000...not sure why they didnt drop it more when it was 60,000
