The BC Lions were in the position this weekend to upset the Saskatchewan Roughriders and prove my prediction wrong. However, they didn’t and it’s hard to understand how it all unfolded. The offence was under the control of starter Travis Lulay, the defense was tenacious and limiting, the special teams was solid and the offensive line held up their end of the bargain as the...

He hasn’t won yet this month and had probably his worst showing of the year against the Saskatchewan Roughriders on Oct. 19. DeMarco threw four interceptions and only completed 13 of 31 passes in a game that cost the Lions a home playoff game...

First it was Mitch Mortaza who took a bunch of the American LFL players to Canada to cover up the fact the Canadians weren’t ready for prime time. Then he fired the coaches in Canada, now he is paying the American Girls while the Canadian Girls get nothing.
