As a betting man, I'd love to take your money, if you care to put it where your mouth is.  Or, as this site will probably not allow wagering in cash, name your stakes.  Middle of the pack means 9-9.  I'll give you the middle ground and take the over at 9.5 wins.  Put up, or shut up Wink

In 2018 only 3 teams won more games than Winnipeg. OTOH, every team in the West had 9-9 seasons or better. Ottawa had an 11-7 season.

Winnipeg had the 4th best record. In that sense we were at the top of the middle 3rd at 10-8.

The win loss record is always interesting. A more fortunate turn of events against Regina and we finish 2nd in the West. Yes, I know the end result is all that counts in the record. However, my point  is that as a fan you have to be pleased to have been very competitive in those close losses. We only got smoked a few times.

David William Naylor@TSNDaveNaylor

Have been told that @SolomonE56 has formally asked for his release ASAP after being informed of the @BCLions plans last week. Still not released and so cannot negotiate with other CFL teams. #cfl #lions


Wow... Hervey is really messing this one up... whether he is releasing him or not, this is absolutely not the way to do it.  To the CFLPA VP during CBA negotiations...

Classless. Let the man go so he can try to earn a living.

It would be, but it's never going to happen.

Absolutely abysmal the way Hervey is handling a player of Solly's character and longevity with the leos...I'm sure other players around the league have a close eye on this b.s.

We shouldn't get in a bidding war for Solly if his main thing is $$. But if he wants to come here, why not

Let's sign him if he is reasonable with the money.  The other teams will suck this year.  If Solo wants to be on a winning team, he should come here.

I'm guessing that he signs somewhere this week. If TC is on schedule ( which I'm expecting ) he'll want to know where he's going to end up and be ready for his new opportunity.

Also just guessing the probabilities : Hamilton, Toronto and Regina in that order. Even though Calgary lost Singleton it's outside their norm to sign high value free agents that weren't Stamps.

Maybe they surprise me but I'm thinking he's headed out east.

OTOH, we didn't think we'd land Bighill in 2018 or be able to retain him in 2019. So spin the wheel and where it lands nobody knows. lol

I'd pass on him. You only want to spend so much money on the linebacker position. If we have Solly level money available, we're better off saving it for an American receiver in an NFL camp.
