December 2016 – Nik Lewis – Waggle End

The ENTIRE point of the tight-end position is to add BIG bodies to the offensive-line and protection of your quarterback, while sacrificing NOTHING in the way of targets for your quarterback to throw to. As the CFL struggles with a veritable PLAGUE of injuries to the MOST important star of EVERY team, might it NOT… Continue reading December 2016 – Nik Lewis – Waggle End

December 2016 – Slaying the 3-Headed Beast

It was Herb who yesterday referred to reported plans for Maciocia, Reed and Chapdelaine to create a “triumvirate” at the top of the Alouettes totem…as a “three-headed monster”. Well, today it’s being reported that Maciocia has refused to participate in the unorthodox alignment, and will remain at his post with the Carrabins. My recent comments… Continue reading December 2016 – Slaying the 3-Headed Beast

December 2016 – In the Murky Depths

December 2016 – Als New GM – A 0-Horse Race?

According to Gary Lawless of TSN, Brock Sunderland is no longer under consideration by the Wetenhalls for the Alouettes’ open GM spot. At the same time, Lawless reports that Danny Maciocia has had no formal contact with the team since his one interview on the subject. It’s worth noting, however, that Lawless himself reported that… Continue reading December 2016 – Als New GM – A 0-Horse Race?

December 2016 – AGAIN with the Montreal Gazette Posts

Jack Todd wrote YET ANOTHER article on the MLS Montreal Impact supplanting the Alouettes in Montreal. I took exception, and wrote a response: It’s kinda funny. Whenever an article like this appears the underlying assumption always seems to be: there are sports fans out there, or rather Sports Dollars, and each pro team in the… Continue reading December 2016 – AGAIN with the Montreal Gazette Posts
