NWSB Insider and BC Lions’ blogger Bryan McFarlane addresses the pros and cons from the BC Lions’ 1st regular season game against the Calgary Stampeders. Jon Cornish ran at, through, around and over the Lions en route to 172 yards on the day for the Stamps. One thing is for sure, the defense needs to tighten up if the Lions want to get on the winning side of a football game. Sure the Stampeders are the reigning Western Division champs, but…

The three most important games of the BC Lions 2013 campaign

BC Lions

NWSB Insider and B.C. Lions blogger Bryan McFarlane brings us his 3 must see games for this season. The defending Grey Cup champs, the Toronto Argonauts, will be taking on the Lions in a battle of the last 2 league champions. Then the Riders come to town with new addition and Lions favorite Geroy SImon in tow. Then the Stampeders come to town in what is sure to be a battle for the west. I hope Travis Lulay brings his A games.

Five things I hate about the Lions’ Geroy Simon trade

Geroy Simon Roughriders

New NWSB Insider and BC Lions blogger Bryan McFarlane gives us his five biggest reasons why he hates the Geroy Simon trade to the Roughriders. First off, green is clearly not his favorite colour, and Riders green is even worse. Green is the colour of envy, not the colour suitable for Superman. Plus the fact that the Lions got absolutely no value in the trade in return. The leagues best WR of all time gets traded for nothing in return is enough to make anybody’s blood boil.

Marshawn Lynch

NWSB Insider and Seattle Seahawks blogger Bryan McFarlane brings us up to speed on the five reasons the Seahawks laid the smackdown on the Arizona Cardinals on Sunday in Week 14 NFL action.

Five Reasons the B.C. Lions will win the 100th Grey Cup

Travis Lulay

New NWSB Insider and BC Lions blogger Bryan McFarlane gives us his fearless prediction as to why the BC Lions will win the 2012 Grey Cup. The Leos have the league’s sack leader Keron Williams, and standout Adam Bighill, who finished second in the CFL in tackles and fourth in sacks. But it is far from a two-man show on B.C.’s stingy defense. Another reason. The West Final. The B.C. Lions lost just one game in the comfort of their own home this season.
