  1. Unfortunately you are right. Me and my gf haven't bought a place yet because after all of the number crunching we concluded that if the interest rates went up, we might not be able to afford it. To play it on the safe side, we decided that renting is still the better option. It's a sad truth and I have friends that just bought their first place.
  2. I agree. I think I'll actually buy Madden this year for the first time since Madden 07. They got the frostbite engine for it and also the story mode seems cool. The NHL games still look too similar to last generation. It's like they have been doing minor tweaks for a decade, but the game on the outside still looks too similar. Players still move and skate weird in my opinion.

  4. Joe Sakic seems uncomfortable in front of the camera. Always been a low key type of guy even as a player.
  5. God these teams play at such high speeds with so much finesse. The Canucks are not even close to playing this way.
  6. I just wanna see Ovie crank Kadri
  7. Yeah I just recently found that out after I posted that. Oh well, guess we'll just all eventually run out of numbers lol.
  8. No matter how bad a player plays at the end of their career, they will always be remembered for the good times. When I think of Brodeur, I think of the the 3 cups and his hall of fame career with the Devils.

  10. That was one of the reasons I thought it was cool that Hall wore #4. I thought it was cool for a forward to wear a number that isn't traditionally for a forward. This whole number non sense is kinda stupid. He can wear whatever he wants if it wasn't retired league wide like 99. Sure he comes across as a douche for wearing it, but I think we take the number thing too seriously. The Leafs do it right by honoring numbers instead of retiring them.
  11. Even though the 90s was about the trap, it was such a cool era with all these players with such big personalities like Roenick. Now it's all robots and everybody is the same and afraid to say things. Roenick and Hull was such a breath of fresh air back in those days.
  12. BC Lions coaching staff need to take note on how Ottawa's offensive gameplan against Calgary. Calgary clearly the better team in terms of talent, so Ottawa had to throw everything at them to even have a chance. Burris played quite possibly the best game of his career. The game plan was great by using TONS of misdirection and motion and this seemed to throw Calgary's defense off. It gave Ottawa a big enough lead just to hang on because with Calgary's talent, they still were able to come back from a 20 point deficit. BC coaching under Wally has always been about executing the same game plan all year along and beating teams with talent rather then scheming. Ottawa showed how valuable scheming is especially when you are heavy underdogs.
  13. No pressure on Mitchell. Everytime we send in Solly or biggie in to blitz they pick it up.
  14. The Lions tried that last time and it didn't work. Anytime the Lions send pressure, the Stamps pick it up and Mitchell just ate the defense up alive. When they don't send the pressure, he has even more time to survey the field and pick us apart. The only way I see the Lions having any success is if the front 4 has the game of their lives and can pressure Mitchell without extra men in the box. Mitchell gets rid of the ball so fast that even when we blitz, they can never get to him in time. Mark Washington has his work cut out for him.
  15. Maybe the ticket prices are different for season ticket holders, but I've always been a single game ticket guy and go to the ones I prefer. What I've noticed is that the "cheap seats" that I use to always pay for has gone up drastically over the years. Also for you, $128 all in might be a great deal for you, but people in my age group/friend circle think that even the $38 end zone seats are too expensive. Our wages haven't gone up that much over the years, but everything around us has gone up in price by a lot. The entertainment dollar is stretched much more thin these days and the Lions have to understand that. Yes, the CFL has that the stigma of being bush since the I was a kid growing up. That's nothing new. The whole NFL thing is more apparent only because of the resurgence of the Seahawks, but that's nothing new. The CFL will always have it's place and it's important not trying to be like the NFL or the NHL. It's interesting that you mention the blackout. Of all the great things Ackles did during his time, I don't agree with his stance on the blackout. I remember being a kid growing up in the 90s and all the BC Lions games were blacked out. Nobody even knew the Lions were playing back in those days. They consistently got like under 20k at the dome and back then the upper deck was opened as well. It was just a sea of blue everywhere. I remember getting cheap tickets from Safeway and then just walking over to the sideline seats since nobody was ever there. HDTV is here to stay and it definitely has had an effect on attendance, but it's up to the teams to adapt to that and try to get fans into the stadium. The TSN deal gives each team a decent cheque every year and it was money they didn't have in the past. You can't have the pie and eat it as well. With the TV deal money, it's where I think the Lions can lower the ticket prices a bit and aggressively market to the young crowd. Like I said before, the $5 kids deal was such a cool thing, but they didn't continue with it throughout the regular season. There needs to be more initiatives and commitment from ownership and not just milking Grey Cups every few years for a fat cheque.
