Anyone hear anything about the status of his appeal? Game 3 and he's still playing. That's total BS.

Ya, I thought it was BS when I got to PAS and saw him on the field.  I knew he'd be big trouble, and he was.

Those who said "just imagine if we had signed Lemon late '23" were/are right.  Not only would we have probably won the GC because MTL would have gotten way less pressure, but we'd have an instant solution to our 2024 DL woes.

Woulda coulda shoulda.  Whisper was we did look at it... probably wasn't enough SMS left.

Who would have thought a totally aged-out geriatric and plump DE would be so fast and dominant.  In week 1 he actually ran down Demski from behind on a sweep.  Actually out-sped him.  I have no words for this.

If we had Lemon I bet we would have won.  I imagine he would as well....

Your posts sure make a lot of assumptions

According to Dave Naylor the arbitration hearing will be the first week of July.

Where is this headed.  Seems simple...he bet on games or he didn't bet on games.  Cut and dried?

Maybe the question is about the # of games.  I think gambling like this is without precedent in the CFL?  So one could say X games or Y seasons is arbitrary and fight for a reduced punishment.

On the bright side, if we make it to the GC this year, and it's MTL, we won't have to deal with him.

That's garbage, he should be suspended without pay until the arbitration hearing and not allowed to continue playing. The CFL already deemed him guilty of the crime and handed down punishment, so they must have valid evidence.

Agree. Far to long to make a decision on this.

Let's talk absolutes.  Montreal absolutely won.  Lemon absolutely had a great game.  He absolutely outplayed Jefferson.

Our Dline was absolutely gassed at the end and could not get pressure.

You absolutely missed the punchline.

Don't recall you posting much in the last few years but seem to recall you frequented this forum regularly before the Bombers turned the corner and became a competitive football team.  Do you relish in their losing?

I think the CFL has made it clear that players/staff cant bet on games and will be banned from the league if they do.

I believe the only grounds Lemon has for his appeal is saying he was not made aware he wasnt allowed to bet on games. Remember, this was a few years ago and the league may not have had the guidelines in place that they do now.

Now even people in Ed Tait's position have to go through a seminar that explicitly states he is unable to bet on games. Was that in place when Lemon gambled?

Good point.  I would think though that the league would not have arbitrarily suspended him if it happened before any rules were in effect.

At least the league has prioritized this...

It wouldn't shock me at all if this is the same user who went by road griller before getting the banhammer. Same whiny commentary and all - only it was about the Jets and Hellebucyk before.

Don't buy it, there have been so many sports scandals with sports gambling over the past century that every athlete should be well aware this is a line they dare not cross.  I think the wiley old vet. is just trying to "squeeze a few more games out of the Lemon", before he's officially banned.  ;D
