Orland Kurtenbach and Dennis Kearns had just been torched 8-1 by the Habs, but they still took time to come out to meet us, some fellow BC boys who were playing hockey in Montreal. THAT"S what being a Canuck is!

Also the Grey Cup is one of the few events that the Americans haven't taken over and screwed up yet, it is basically a Canadian party, so lets celebrate with Canadian artists, Lightfoot is a legend, his music is a bit mellow but no more so than Blue Rodeo, Beiber is the hot ticket (Odin only knows why) at the moment, I must confess I am not familiar with the other singer, I rarely listen to radio or Muchmusic.

I get what you're saying, and it is clearly what the organizers are thinking... but if you are the CFL and are going to be using the "Canadian artists" theme (as they often do) I am sure you could dig up a band or two that would present a more consistent(?) show. Like someone else said, I have no love for Nickelback but they'd fit a lot more than shoehorning Lightfoot in with pure pop,
I also liked the "under 16, over 60 crowd" comment. :lol:

BTW, I have no choice but to like Lightfoot... I sail on a freakin' Great Lakes Freighter....

Pierce just needs to hang it up before he ends up a cripple.

---------------------------------------------------

Buck Pierce to miss final Bombers game with shoulder injury

Buck Pierce has played his last game this season for the Winnipeg Blue Bombers.

He injured his shoulder and heads a long list of players hurt in Saturday’s rain-soaked 28-18 loss in Hamilton.

With the loss, Winnipeg has no chance to make the playoffs but will play one more game this weekend at home against Montreal.

Interim head coach Tim Burke says it’s also uncertain whether No. 1 backup Joey Elliott can start since he banged up his knee Saturday.

The Bombers will also be without their two best running backs — Chad Simpson and Will Ford — and receivers Terrence Edwards and Isaac Anderson.

At this point, they don’t expect Johnny Sears to play either, which once again opens a hole at strong-side linebacker.

I expect the Bombers to go hard after Reilly or even Glenn in the off-season.

Saw on TSN this morning that the Riders are going to rest Durant this weekend. (likely due to the helmet to helmet hit he took from Brandon Isaac of the Argos)

Drew Willy gets the start for the Green guys. If Vancouver fans can't come up with creative signs using that name, then I don't know what to say...

Chris Williams on Hamilton is a beast. He is gonna get some NFL offers for next season.

What I don't get is how can one team's offence can be so good and explosive yet they don't make the playoffs because their d is absolutely terrible.

Also how does a guy like Chevon Walker not get used more instead of Cobourne? He is their most explosive RB you have to get him touches in a must win game.

Hamilton's problems are clearly on defense. Sure the offence can improve by limiting the turnovers but the defense has to bail out the offence once in a while.

Yeah it sure didn't have the roller coaster of excitement of last season where they started 0-5 only to recover and win the grey cup.

I've been to nearly every Riders game in Vancouver the last few seasons. I'm contemplating season tix for next season.. What kind of benefits do they include?

Wow :lol:

Drew Tate is starting for the Stamps in place of KG. Unbelievable. I hope the Stamps get blown out because of this decision.




Chris Cuthbert@CCtsn
I understand Drew Tate is the #CalStampeders QB of the future but shocked he'll start in WSF. Thanks for saving the season Kevin Glenn.


News1130 Sports@News1130Sports
WOW is the response I got from #Riders gm Brendan Taman when I told him Drew Tate getting the start vs his team.


News1130 Sports@News1130Sports
Tamen also asked "Are you kidding" when informed of Tate decision. I think Riders were getting ready for Glenn.



News1130 Sports@News1130Sports
Count #Lions gm Wally Buono as another gm surprised Tate getting the start. This morning Bouno was sure it would be Glenn.



Other BC Lion news:





News1130 Sports@News1130Sports

#Lions gm Wally Buono says m-r-i on OL Dean Valli was positive - he'll be ok for West Final. Valli will practice next Tuesday.



News1130 Sports@News1130Sports
Buono says Hameister-Reece is IFFY for Western Final and Jason Arakgi is doubtfull..


News1130 Sports@News1130Sports
Buono says receivers Geroy Simon and Arland Bruce will be 100% healthy for practice on Thursday.

You get:

10% off of merchandise at the Stadium and online.
First dibs on playoff tickets.
You can buy additional single game tickets without service charges.
Exclusive pre-sale offers for BC place events. (Only was I was able to get Paul McCartney tics.)
Exclusive invites to BC Lions events.

From what I've been told from other season ticket holders, the longer you have them, the more cool stuff the team does for you.

CFL Award finalists are out:
MOP
Jon Cornish (CGY)
Chad Owens (TOR)

DEFENSIVE PLAYER
JC Sherritt (EDM)
Shea Emry (MTL)

CANADIAN PLAYER
Jon Cornish (CGY)
Shea Emry (MTL)

SPECIAL TEAMS
Tim Brown (BC)
Chris Williams (HAM)

ROOKIE
Jabar Westerman (BC)
Chris Matthews (WPG)

OFFENSIVE LINEMAN
Jovan Olafioye (BC)
Josh Bourke (MTL)

Little surprised Sherritt beat out Bighill for the West Defensive finalist but I can pretty much agree with the rest of it. I think Owens takes MOP and Cornish gets Canadian.

They had 41,000 last year. Hopefully they will get more this year since the Canucks aren't playing. Wish more people would take the time to go to a game and see how much fun they are.

Why does the CFL go head to head with the NFL? They would be better off playing on Saturdays but I guess the rationale for that was that they expected hockey to be played this year.
