Good gravy, what's happening on this forum.
It's come unhinged

Quote from: Road Griller on June 21, 2024, 06:56:23 PMMust have missed the dynasty run...?  Four good seasons with back to back losses to underdogs in the final a dynasty does not make.

Last cup win was '21.  A long time ago, I remember we were wearing masks in the stands way back then.  Interesting times.

Let's see what they have tonight, from the penthouse to the outhouse or a season turning dominating game at home?

Time for them to show us who they are in a must win game.  Go Blue!
The last four year have been as dominant for the Bombers in decades end of.

2-2 lost 2 titles back to back going in as the favourite.  Not a CFL dynasty. Thinking it was makes no sense.

I consider it a mini dynasty and was a good as run we have had in decades.  You speak of it like it meant nothing and didn't happen.  It's OK, we can disagree like every post you make.

Yes not a dynasty by the classic definition.

Quote from: TecnoGenius on June 21, 2024, 09:32:25 PMLawler = Nick was my original comparison.  Look at pictures of them, they are basically the same body.  Same lanky frame, thin bones (compared to say, Cottoy), thus easily injured.

They also make the same kind of plays and are used in much the same way.

Yes, Kenny's stats are much better than Nick's ever were... and Kenny's best circus plays are better than Nick's.  So to be totally accurate we can call Kenny the "new & improved" Nick Moore.

P.S. Nick was making sick plays and big stats when he was still in his prime in BC.  Go back and check, especially on a per-game basis to eliminate the injury stat reductions.  We all better pray that Kenny's game doesn't fall off as quickly as Nick's did when he started getting older... especially while we're paying him ~$300k.

I did get Nick Moore's salary wrong, he was paid around $145k in 2014.  It was an ex-Stamps receiver who signed with the Argos who broke the $170k threshold around the same time, only to retire a couple years later. Can't even recall his name now.

Getting back to the original thread, I hate the fact that it is taking so freaking long to get an arbitrator ruling.  All the other leagues seem to be able to get this stuff resolved in a week.  And yes, I get the CFL cannot afford to pay arbitrators to be on standby.

Whatever they decide, I hope they time it so that Lemon is out when we next face MTL, in week 21.  It'll be garbage-game time for MTL anyhow.  Last thing we need is for anyone to get Lemonated.  Our season will probably still be hanging by a thread come week 21, even if we have everyone back and are finally firing on all cylinders (the early loses will be hard to overcome).

Lemon and his lawyer had pushed the hearing from July 5th to the beginning of Aug.

The league felt he should be suspended until the hearing and the arbitrator agreed.

As a result, Lemon is suspended effective immediately.

Good. Then he can't just keep pushing it back to continue playing.
If convicted, he should have to forfeit those gameday cheques from the games he played in.

It's kind of an ironic loophole. He should never have been allowed to play in the 1st place. An appeal should have been immediate and not 5 weeks into the season.

If he's not, should the Als pay him for the games he's suspended for up until the hearing?

I'd say no they shouldn't and there have been several recent examples that have set precedent. Lawler last year for example.
