    From what I've seen Geroy isn't around Wally at all during the practices or games. Geroy has been busy visiting different schools and camps scouting for the Canadian draft. Mark Washington is someone who's being groomed.

    You make a good point. You're most likely correct. I guess I just see Geroy as good coach material. Probably a bit of hoping he gets a bigger role with the team.

    Not sure if he still does, but I know he used to coach his son's football team in Surrey. They won a few championships, though he did kinda dominate the league recruiting process.

    "Wanna come play for Geroy Simon?" Is a good selling point

    Leaving for Kamloops tomorrow to take in the Saturday morning practice and the evening Fan Fest. Probably going to hit up Frick and Frack tomorrow night.

    I'd like to see Vandervoort get the start over Watson. Guy is clutch who catches anything thrown towards him.

    How has Jennings looked in the first half?

    I started watching with only about 5 minutes left in the half. Not sure.

    62 yard interception TD for the Lions.

    Terrible throw by the Bombers QB. Amateur hour.

    Losing Nicols is going to doom their season.

    He's played much of the 3rd Q, and looking in sync with his receivers. Good throws to Burnham for a TD and conversion.

    Thanks, I was just catching up on a bunch of reports. Just started watching again a few minutes ago.

    Jennings out, Lloyd in. Good 3 Q's for JJ though.

    Decent showing, though with some obvious holes to fill.

    Jennings is still trying to find his feet again; only tried the deep ball a couple of times, didn't really do much scrambling from the line of scrimmage. Looked tentative.

    Burnham is still a stud, though I just can't get it out of my head that his first name isn't Lester. Damn you, Kevin Spacey.

    O-line and D-line seem better...but there's a long season ahead. Glad for the new help, though. The inability to protect the QB has been a crippling flaw since 2011.

    If I were Rainey, I'd be so immensely pissed off with this team. It's like every game he has a punt or kickoff return for a TD and it's called back on a penalty. Two big returns negated today...but still preseason.

    TSN still annoying...at one point the camera lingered over a sideline huddle of the guys with Jarious looking at a tablet...while plays went down. I already hate the slate of commercials.

    New season next week. And I have my mother-in-law visiting. D'oh. (I kid...she's actually a great lady. She's been so hugely generous to my kid over the years).

    What was the deal with both BC and Calgary wearing dark uniforms (including black pants) the other week? Must have caused more than a little confusion on the field.

    Have to take your word for it. Wasn't televised. That really pissed me off, too. I was looking forward to it all week.

    Got tickets for the game on Saturday. Felt the need to spoil myself a bit. Got front row, corner of the endzone

    I did it, I cancelled my cable. Only thing I'm gonna miss over the next few months is the CFL. What's the best way to watch games online?

    Has anyone tried Stream Live CFL Games on CFL International ?

    $3 US a game, or $36.99 US for every Lions game.

    EDIT: Looks like it's only out of market/country...

    EDIT2: You can subscribe to TSN online for $25/month. But that's for everything.

    Looks to me like Ed Hervey has done the 'reverse Wally Buono"....loaded up on CFL veterans who know the league and have a proven track record...O-line looks transformed, and Odell Willis is the motor that never stops on the D-line....can't help but think they'll have to be better, particularly since the Riders and Bombers seem to have taken a step backward.

    I plan on it tomorrow, but certainly not every game.
