NWSB Gambling insider and BC Lions blogger Dave B weighs in on the CFL matchup in Week 6 between the Winnipeg Blue Bombers and the B.C. Lions on Monday, August 5th, 2013. Check out the preview, Live betting odds and lines, and Canadian football gambling trends. The Lions look to bounce back after that pathetic performance Tuesday against Toronto. Good news is the Lions are back in town where they sure play a lot better than they do on the road.

BC Lions get upstaged by Toronto’s rising star Zach Collaros 38-12

NWSB Insider and B.C. Lions’ blogger Phil “The Bartender” Slater tells us what exactly went wrong for the Leo’s on Tuesday night in Toronto. It may have been the loss of Rookie Guard Kirby Fabien early in the contest that took the wind out of BC’s sails and put it solely behind the good ship Argonaut. A positive? Linebacker Adam Bighill was effective in his return to action, flying off the edge for 6 tackles and 2 sacks.

NWSB Gambling insider and BC Lions blogger Dave B weighs in on the CFL matchup in Week 5 between the B.C. Lions and Toronto Argonauts on Tuesday, July 30, 2013. Check out the preview, Live betting odds and lines, and Canadian football gambling trends. The Lions go for 4 wins in a row, taking on a banged up Argos squad who’s defense has been giving up loads of yards per game. Sounds like a winning formula for the Leos.

Why Isi Sofele was nearly claimed by the Tiger Cats

NWSB Insider and BC Lions blogger Andrew Deutschmann weighs in today with a post about the fortunate news for Isi Sofele, he is wanted after all. The Hamilton Tiger-Cats put in a waiver claim for Sofele, but according to the rules of the CFL, the team who owns the contract has a chance to keep a practice squad player claimed by another team by instantly putting him on the active roster. So after all was said and done, Sofele ended up on the 46 man roster.

B.C. Lions and their same old story

Andrew Harris

NWSB Insider and B.C. Lions’ blogger Phil “The Bartender” Slater returns to his writing roots with an analysis of the B.C. Lions’ first four games. Noting that this year’s squad has the same feel of past squads due to the fact that Andrew Harris still commands where B.C. will go NOT Travis Lulay, not much has changed from one year to the next with the Lions. If they want to emerge and excite their fans further, they’ll need to improve their special teams and, in particular, their return game.

NWSB Insider and B.C. Lions’ blogger Bryan McFarlane recaps the Lions’ last contest against the Eskimos. Giving game balls to Andrew Harris, Dante Marsh, and Paul McCallum, Bryan revels in the Lions’ latest victory at BC Place and their second consecutive victory over Edmonton. Well all-in-all this was a solid team win for the Lions. If anyone was curious how the Travis Lulay versus Mike Reilly battle would go down.

BC Lions should have Waterfront dreams

This would be a sweet place to catch a BC Lions game.

NWSB Insider and BC Lions’ blogger Ben Lypka tells you why the BC Lions need to move from BC Place to the waterfront stadium where the Vancouver Whitecaps play. I know we’re only three games into the 2013 season but the Lions are averaging a pretty mediocre 26,623 – good for fifth in the CFL. They’re really only outdrawing Toronto because the only other teams below them (Hamilton and Montreal) don’t even have enough seats to draw 26,000.

Special teams hurting the BC Lions

NWSB Insider and BC Lions blogger Andrew Deutschmann weighs in today with the question of whether or not the special teams unit is hurting the Lions. Sure, the Lions are off to a 2-1 start, but as Andrew points out, they could just as easily be 0-3 at this point. The offense and defense have been great, but it’s the special teams that have really lacked this year. Whether it is not giving the O good field position, or some bad snaps and holds, or to flat out missing extra points, the play just has not been good enough. Plain and simple.

Won’t back down – Failure and success under Mike Benevides

NWSB Insider & BC Lions blogger Travis Erbacher weighs in today with a piece about the resiliency of the Lions head coach Mike Benevides. Travis touts the coach for his ability to bounce back after a tough defeat and lead his boys to victory. All Benevides needs now is a couple Grey Cup championships under his belt to silence the CFL critics around the country.

Damon Allen gets the call for the BC Lions wall of fame

Damon Allen will be inducted into the Wall of Fame for the Lions. But does he deserve it more than Casey Printers?

NWSB Insider and B.C. Lions Blogger Ben Lypka recaps Damon Allen’s (Yes Marcus Allen’s brother for our American friends reading this today) honour onto the Wall of Fame, but questions whether or not he deserves it more than another polarizing presence, Casey Printers. Allen only produced one Grey Cup in the seven years he was with the Lions. Printers put together one of the best single seasons by a Lions quarterback in club history in 2004.

BC vs. Edmonton

NWSB Insider and B.C. Lions’ blogger Bryan McFarlane gives you his offensive, defensive, and special teams game balls from this past week’s triumph over the Edmonton Eskimos. Travis Lulay took home the offensive game ball with an impressive performance, while Cord Parks a nice B.C. defensive back with a great name, great hair and a great style of play got the D game ball. Korey Williams was the ST’s standout.
