BOOOM!!!!

You know, I actually like the CFL. Went to home opener, was a bit sad. The crowd was small, the atmosphere dull, and the product a bit uninspiring. It's too bad, but it's not working in BC.


At one point, the NFL called the CFL a feeder league, good place for their players to develop.
Now they don't.
Too bad. It shows.


The CFL is a joke. From the owners to the players and the officials. They must be due for another team to be called the Roughriders. Maybe David Braley could buy up a couple more teams.

I can remember as a kid that being the hope when the owner built BC Place.

Another hope was that they might eventually be granted an NFL franchise.

There was huge interest in football in those days, I can remember them selling out reg season games.

Yes at BC Place.

I was just a kid and my dad was a season ticket holder, he took me half the games.

Not sure what killed the CFL, some were saying twas all the players trading teams all the time.

Over the Internet, you can pretend to be anyone or anything.

I'm amazed that so many people choose to be complete twats.

It all depends on how one defines "kid". :D

Yes I watched many games at Empire when I was knee-high to a grasshopper.

But I'm referring to BC Place right now.

How's the weather down your way Corn? :look:

I went to more games at Empire Stadium, first as a kid, then as a drunken lout. ;)

As for the weather - 82 and sunny right now (only 2 hailstorms last week).

I'm sure we must have crossed paths back in the day.

My dad used to smuggle a mickey into every game.

He refused to let me have any of course... until I was 13. :D

Oh it's true!

I was kicked out of The Penthouse once.

Who gets kicked out of the Penthouse?

I just don't think there is enough sports for 24/7 radio or 4-5 channels of TV.

Doc the Hastings Park Flavour strangely enough back in the day served as a Nuclear deterrent for most of the peeps... People tended to mind their P's & Qs for if they didn't their were consequences to their actions... Given that your sports flavour essentially came out of that community Canucks Horse Racing Lions... Lions Games at Empire were more involved more fun an edge that teetered on danger at Lions games at The BC Place became more sterile
more corporate they lost their edge...

Sidenote seen more things I shouldn't of seen from the age of 10 to 17 at Playland that included fights and sex acts than anyone that age should've...

Ever since Landy, people were looking over their shoulders at Empire.
