Undisciplined penalties especially on offence killed the Lions. Two offsides on Shaq Johnson, two illegal blocks on Kevin Elliott and illegal procedures on Jovan Olafioye. Inexcusable.

Stampeders no longer undefeated, as the Riders dominated in every facet of the game enroute to a 40-27 win this afternoon.

Yes the Riders are doing good as their QB is mixing it up perfectly. Short & long passes & run plays.
He is putting a nice touch on the ball so it's very catchable. On location & right speed.
He also has good timing as the ball gets to his receivers right after they make their break. The move by the receiver gives him a 2-3 sec. window before the D man can react & close in.
Beat the undefeated Stamps last week & the Lions last night.
Lions should of won this one though as there were so many dropped balls. Then with seconds to go the Lions decide to go on 3rd & 1. A field goal would of tied the game. Lions did not make the yd. they needed. Quite the last year Buono is having  as head coach !!!!!  >:( :o :(
Busy last night so had to wait till today to watch the game. Truly thought the Lions would come back & get the W.     The Rider fans at BC Place were rejoicing & the BC Lion fans very long faced. They have every right to feel shafted. Lion team does not seem focused. Too many nervous rookies.
In this league the odds are a team will make the playoffs. 6 teams have a chance to win the Grey Cup after the regular season so to miss out a team has had to play poorly. Boooooooooooooooo !!!

Lions beat themselves again, dropping 5 passes and unable to convert on a crucial 3rd down.

"crucial 3rd down" ....QB sneak earlier in the game was barely made. Should of ran a sweep.
Lions get that 1st down & then possibly get a TD or in the least 3pts to tie.
BC Lions gotta rev up the engines so in the 4qtr. they are ahead by 2 TDs & can coast to victory.
Lions need more passes in the middle of the field 7-8 yd passes. They throw too many long throws to the wide side ( hard throw to complete & alittle off it's 6 pts the other way )& if complete go for 8 yds regardless. Why not throw over the middle or hash mark area. Offence play selections need to be changed.

Finally a BC Lion win. This game was ugly though. Seems the offence players on both teams had a dazed look. FLAT. Thankfully the Lions defence played very well most of the time.
Ottawa & Lions had that "we do not believe in ourselves" attitude. Lulay had his eye poked so he sat out most of the game. Our backup seems to play well in that very roll. Back up & gets called in.
Edmonton Esk coach was the same when he played QB. Played great when coming off the bench but not as a starter.
Willis had rocket blasters on his shoes. He had fast bursts & ran down the Ottawa QB for 3-4 sacks !!!
At least the Lions won with a margin & not the usual nail biter right to the last play of the game.
Ottawa was flat on offence for the most part but was it their play or was it the Lions shutting them down ????

Lion defence was outstanding and aggressive. 6 quarterback sacks, 3 interceptions and 1 blocked punt. They were gang tackling all night. Offence needs some work.

Offence needs some work. 100x
Remember the days the Lions put up 40 plus points per game !!! Don Matthews days...
He's dead now. Vic Rapp he's kicked the bucket too. Who will replace Wally ? There was a black QB who played for the Stamps & Lions. He was also head coach for abit for 2-3 teams??? Sk. & ?
In BC he threw for over 600 yds in a game & that record was broken shortly after. He had a rocket arm. He could throw a 60-70 yard pass I think. Name? Also how about our likeable coach from the mid 90s !
As for the CFL I think they should have Kelowna have a team. Games should have 18,000-20,000 with 1000 fans from Kamloops / another 1000 from Penticton , 600-800 from Vernon, 100's from other smaller communities. Charter buses could bring in 2000 fans thus to have less traffic on the roads. Plus they could have 1 pm start games on weekends for their home games thus daylight still for drive home.
( less accidents ) Kelowna Assassins !!! When the Lions are the pits we BC residents could then pull for the Assassins !!!! ;D
Danny Barrett is his name. QB Dunigan broke his record for offence in a game right after Danny threw for over 600 yds or total offence.

Agree the offence definitely needs work. Halifax will be awarded the next franchise long before Kelowna but I do like the name of Assassins. :D

Yes FA you would like that name.  ;D ( Fish Assassin )
Watched ch 8 All Star Wrestling back in the day...1960s & there were some good tag teams ...John & Chris Tolos, Abdullah the Butcher & Dr. Jerry Graham, Don Leo Jonathan & Patty Barrett, Gene Kiniski & Hard Boiled Haggerty, Don & Roy McCarthy, The Kangaroos. (Roy Hefferman & Al ? ) & other good teams but one that was really rough & tough & good wrestlers as well were a masked team named The Assassins !!!! Sometimes they would put a metal plate disc in their mask & then head butt their opponent on his forehead. He'd nearly be knocked out thus it was 1-2-3 ring the bell Assassins WIN!!!
( yes I know pro wrestling is not a true sport...nevertheless there is pain involved & these wrestlers in real life are tough as they come !!! ) Yes Halifax is in the CFL sights but hopefully Kelowna next after that.

BC Lions get the W over the Als in Montreal ! Like last game the defense are the reason for the W.
And like last game Lulay started the game & yanked out because of injury. He now has to be known as a QB that has an injury reputation. Just like a past BC & Winnipeg QB who got injuried a lot. White guy too.
Gee white guys can't jump high the slogan goes & it seems some white QBs get injury prone too  ;D
Now out Mr Jennings has to step up to the plate. Hopefully he will lead us to a Grey Cup in Wally's last coaching year. A yr to remember or forget ...to be or not to be.

Defence has come big the past two games, but the offence sucks. They should abandon the read option plays.

Lions need to score at least 28 pts or more if they play a quality team such as the Tigercats Stamps Esks Bombers... seems the Lion offense is barely putting up 14 pts per game & the defense adds to the score via takeovers & a run into the end zone. A good pressure defense will have the QB to rush his throws & that means incomplete or interceptions in a lot of cases.
Oh ya the other white QB that got injured a lot was Buck Pierce.
His main problem was he'd drop back in the pocket & stand like a statue till he threw the ball.
The big D linemen would bare down & have a still target. BAM !!! Buck would get hit by the train or tank or semi truck !!!!
Danny Mac hardly got hit because he felt the pressure & he'd get the ball off & he'd move sideways.

What ! What ! What ! Unreal WIN !!!   
I was so happy the Lions went ahead near end of the game but the Tigercats scored quick in a few plays to take over the lead. BC Lions had the ball & with a 3rd & 2 went for a long pass & failed !!!  Then too many things happened to even type on.....all I can say ...WHAT A MIRACLE COMEBACK !!!! A Burnham toe 1 inch inbounds ...etc... OT & a Lions W !!!! 
Thought for sure the Lions would lose the game after a long failed pass on 3rd & 2 in reg time. ( talk about a super bad call !!! ) only a miracle got the Lions a win.
Have an idea FA must be so so excited !!! ( like a Grey Cup win feeling !!! )

Sure was excited A-BOATER. Lost my voice. Been a long time season ticket holder, can't remember a finish like that. June Jones made a colossal blunder in punting the football instead of kicking the field goal.
