    Bull Sh$t..going to Sh$thawks game !!
    You ‘No Fun League’ blowhards are pathetic. Going to Seattle is a long over night trip and very expensive.
    Why would people spend $500.00 weekend to a Shi$thawks exhibition game?
    The CFL is so entertaining and the skytrain is in-out fast and cheap in relative terms.Go to a NFL site and blog your face off. BTW I live in BC.

  3. Yeah I agree with Whitehorse,what the hell are you doing here? Go blow a seagull

    The only worse trolls than Rider fans. Are the A-holes that supposedly don’t even watch the league but comment on it. What a sad lonely life you must lead, you freaking loser.

    Bad news for the Lions, and I don’t wish injury on anybody. But, I was wondering when BC passed three times from the 6, what the deal was. Especially, when they ran it later in almost the same situation, and scored easily. He may not have been able to go in that earlier series. I wasn’t actually paying attention to who was on the field. I only noticed they didn’t run.

    This might improve Edm’s chances of getting a win in BC Place in this game. And, they need it to keep pace with Cgy until LD.

    Hope Johnson is back healthy soon.

  6. Yikes. Awful news for B.C. Different offense without that dude in the game.
