Lions lose 1st game.
« on: June 25, 2017, 02:20:47 PM »

Last play of the game Esk kick the W field goal. 30-27.
Esk QB Reilly  ( sp? ) was a BC Lion.
He hates to lose & he's a fighter to get the W in most every game he's played.
Als win over SK. Ex QB haunts his past team. Durant.
Look who is the TO head coach.
Past Als & NFL head coach.
Calgary  / Ottawa tie game. Stamps came back in that one.
That totally totally hate to lose head coach of Calgary must still be fuming over last year's Grey Cup loss.
This guy of all guys must be the #1 guy who hates to lose.
He's all business 24/7. His plays fans management know it.
When he wins it is bliss & loses are crushing & totally he gets frowns serious look " watch out. "
What did we do wrong is his view & not what the other team did right.
We lost because we did not all do our job.
Every play counts with him.
Alberta get their $$$ worth when he's in charge.
Another retired ex QB from the Stamps / Lions.
He bleeds Stampeder blood.
Should be an interesting year.
Good teams out there.
Sk in their new stadium.
Lions must get it together.
Stamps Edmonton are strong.
Sk & Winnipeg ?
Ottawa good.
Hamilton TO Montreal ???

Long time Lions season ticket holder. Lions were outplayed and outcoached by Edmonton last night. Right side of the offensive line (guard Kirby Fabien and tackle Antonio Johnson) did not played well. Johnson got flagged for two holding calls which nullified big gains. Defence gave up too many big plays none other than the last minute reception by Zyslstra.

Seen the highlights of game & Zyslstra must be the invisible man because he was so wide open it was like the D backs did not see him on the field.
D should of been sitting back 15 - 20 yards & only allow infront completions. Unreal to give up big yardage in that fashion.
Understandable if it was a circus catch but so wide open at that point of the game.  :o
Penalties ya mention definitely hurt.
Wally going to start "blinking a lot " if Lions lose in like fashion in coming games.
Ya look who is Als coach this year ( partly last season as well )
Soap opera CFL sports style.  ;D

Gee whiz FA - We'll have to get together at a game and have a soda. I've got season tickets as well.

Agree completely, the Lions snatched defeat from the jaws of victory with the stupid penalties. This years edition needs to learn discipline.

Are you kidding?
Chris even orders toilet paper from Toronto.
Anything Toronto Chris likes.
( just joking Chris...know you are an ok guy )
Go Lions Go !
In my first Lions game back in the 60s Empire Stadium....  ( maybe 11-12 yrs old or so... got season tickets from Eatons Dept. Store order. 3 rd floor ? Columbia St New Westminster Columbia Stage Bus Lines days
Columbian Newspaper days...25 cents a bus fare days 25 cents a glass of draft beer days...fire crackers the size of a stick of dynamite days... Beatles Elvis Rolling Stones days " Rolling Stones still days !!! )
......the Lions lost. Remember thinking " I'm going to work out pump iron train & join the BC Lions & try to will win. Thought it was a noble cause.  ;D ;D ;D
Ted Gerela, Evenchan, Jim Young, on & on... lots of great history to the CFL.
Great action really. Starts from the top & the coaches etc ..instil the true honour & desire.
Remember those great Edmonton teams? Case closed. Believe 5 Grey Cups in a row. Wow.

I took in a Leafs game with Chris last winter. It was great to see someone who enjoyed a game that much.

Do you remember the final score in that game?
Hopefully not 7-0 for the Leafs. ( play offs had a game like not so long ago. Or Edmonton losing 4-3 in OT after blowing a 3-0 lead with 3:01 on the clock !!! Has to be the most red faced shocking game )
Ya just know some CFL team will get a big lead in a game but still lose the game sometime this season.

Did not mean to post 2x ( above posts ...accident )
The Leaf fans with Jerseys had more of a sheepish body language leaving the rink.
But the team is so improved fans wear Leaf apparel instead of paper brown bags like they did 2-10 yrs ago  :D
Vancouver fans better see Ws or else we (they) will be wearing the paper over our heads.
Hope the Lions can ROAR & get 1st place !!!!
If so they only need 2 Ws & they are the CHAMPS ! ( 2 games ...far cry from the NHL needing 16 wins  )
