Simply Not Good Enough

Let’s get something clear right off the top; I’m a BC Lions fan. Before being a blogger or podcaster, I’m a fan of this team to my core. Which is why it pains me to write this piece here on 3DownNation.com. I don’t want to rip my team, even though there are many times in my 8 years of blogging about the team that I’ve felt like doing so. Usually after a loss I wait until the next day to write to let a cooler head prevail, but this one burned. In the end, I pay my money [...]

Is It Time for David Braley to Sell the BC Lions?

It was just another routine day for the BC Lions when it came to the pursuit of another player via free agency. Defensive lineman Shawn Lemon was being pursued by the Lions, Bombers and Redblacks and when he made his decision to verbally agree to a two year deal with Ottawa, the Lions were once again the odd man out. Two years ago the Lions publicly announced six players they were going to target at the start of free agency and they got none of them. The best they could do this year was safety [...]

The Lions Notebook: Bye Week Edition

With the BC Lions one game shy of the halfway point in their season and on their 2nd and final bye week of the season, I thought it was time for another edition of the Lions Notebook. Obviously the Lions would like to be better than the 3-5 record they sport, but there is still time to turn things around and make a run in the second half of the season. The question is, can they? No Defence no Hope The Lions offence has taken its fair share of heat over the first 8 games of the season, but if [...]

Andrew Harris’ journey with the Lions has him at the top of the game.

The BC Lions will enter the fortress of Tim Horton’s field Saturday and will be considered the underdog by many. There was a point in the life of Andrew Harris where he was an underdog as well. In 2004, Harris was a 17-year old kid from Winnipeg who left home for the west coast to play junior football, after a chance to go to Wilfred Laurier University fell through because of his grades. Harris made the most of the move not only on the field but off it. On the field he was unstoppable as a [...]
