940-buono-wally

NWSB Insider and B.C. Lions’ blogger Phil “The Bartender” Slater brings us a piece on Wally Buono’s rant to the media about the state of the Lions. And he very well should be upset says Phil. This team is rolling in mediocre, not a substance they are used to be playing in. Will the roster moves help? Will the call to the masses help? Only time will tell, but the good thing is the Buck Pierce move at least lights a fire under Travis Lulay’s lagging behind.

NWSB Insider and BC Lions’ Blogger Ben Lypka hands out his mid-season grades for the BC Lions’ offense.

NWSB Insider and B.C. Lions’ blogger Dave B gives you everything you need to know about betting on the Calgary Stampeders vs. BC Lions game coming up this weekend. The Stampeders downed the Lions in their season opener and have an arsenal of weapons on offense that should still give BC’s defense a bit of a tough time. While the Lions will be playing on home turf, Dave suggests going with Calgary, as their offensive might may be too much for the home team.

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.

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.

Mike Benevides

NWSB Insider and BC Lions blogger Phil The Bartender Slater weighs in with his Week 7 CFL preview for the Saskatchewan Roughriders vs. BC Lions from Vancouver’s BC Place.
