Lions score on 1st possession, 2 and out for tabbies, lions ball at mid field, this could get ugly quick

dd

Who is this McGinnis kid?? Over 80 yds receiving half way through 1st quarter and a TD, Lions 14-0, in 2 possessions. Yikes

hamiltons game plan looks to be to get the bc offence tired out

LOL!
Go Bombers!

Ticats look like clearly the worst team in the league. Like you say, I think fatigue is the only thing that will stop the Lions!!

Hamilton offside, Hamilton illegal procedure, 2 nd and 20, man these guys suck !!

The Zipp

Ooof.  Hamilton secondary is sorry

dd

McGinnis having a game of a lifetime and making the Ticats look ridiculously bad

They are truly dreadful. That TD pass was so ooorly underthrown but the DB has no clue where the ball was

Clearly the worst team in the league, hands down. They are awful

Combination of a good team against a bad one. BLM looks awful. Not sure why Hammy thought he could be the answer. He seems to have completely lost his touch for the ball.
Go Bombers!

Watching Hammy here tonight reminds me of our days with Reinbold.

And BLM is being paid $520k to play this bad!! He's awful, certainly not worth the $$ and wouldn't be starting anywhere else than in Hamilton.

It does! They're just so bad defensively-their secondary can't cover anyone, and so inept offensively—shades of 98 bombers for sure! Paul Boudreau must be so relieved to not be associated with such an awful football team

dd

Down 23 points and the last play of the quarter you hand the football off vs go to the end zone!? No wonder the ticat fans are booing!!

VA had 321 yds passing in the first half!! I think dunnigans 700 yds passing in a game record is in danger of being broken!!

No BC is not playing with same intensity, rather playing not to get hurt.

The Zipp

Tim white needs to strong arm catch that and the drive stays alive. 

He is a bust for the $$ so far this season

Pete

how big a disappointment has Hendricks and Barlow been. The only pressure they get consistantly is from sayles.

You clearly don't play fantasy!!  McInnis has been a top fantasy points pick most of this season.  He is the clear #2 in BC with Hatcher out.  And he's the #1 when teams double/triple cover Hollins.  Which HAM is clearly trying to do today.

And he's a NAT to boot!!  Huge body receiver.  I think he played his 1st 2(ish) seasons with SSK, and he was just "ok" there.  Dude is like a Woli, but taller.  He's not too fast, but he blocks you out like Rogers, and he's tough, and doesn't drop them.

Him and VA were just playing pitch and catch. It was sick. Hamilton's secondary is by far the worst in the league. Sanchez really called them out and rightfully so, the talent is clearly not there

BC let up at half-time, they received a phone call from Ambrosie not to embarrass the Ti-Cats any further. The Ti-Cats are dreadful, they need to fire more coaches and find were Steinauer is hiding out and hang him from the goal post of THF for ruining a great franchise.

dd

The Ticats secondary is really really bad. Receivers were open all night long and Adams made them pay. Agree they let up big time in the second half, they could have hung 60 points on them no problem, as it was it was 44 and they didn't even push hard in the second half

I like that for his very first call he paused a good long while to switch his brain into his English gear.  His mouth was desperately trying to start speaking en francais!  The hamster was spinning furiously up there!

But hey, I couldn't speak French half as well as he does English.  My French would sound even worse than Major's!  :D  :D  :P  :P

Just thinking the same thing.  They got so bad no one cares anymore.  BLM gives them zero hope so they just check out.  Just like us for several years circa a decade ago.  And the fan pain is real.  Talked to a ton of them at the GC and they are hurtin', and not sure about the leadership and path/choices.

The timecount on the ST punt with the brand new STC is indicative.  Boo sitting there at home going "seeeee, it wasn't meeeeee!".  Poor Boo.  Maybe it's time to give up the pen habit?

That new STC guy doesn't look like he'll take any bunk... bet their ST doesn't make that mistake next week.

How is that Smoke Harris guy a returner?  He's built like Stanback!  Has a gut like some MLB or DT!  Man, can he scoot though.  What a strange thing to watch.  I have a feeling that if he breaks one close to a TD he'll run out of steam... on his 2nd Q 40-50 yarder he was definitely slowing down.

Edit: Haha, Dunigan noted it too near the end of the game: wants to know where he gets his BBQ!  So do I!

That was awesome.  I rarely keep other-team games for very long on the PVR, but this one is going in my treasure repository... just that 10s clip.

The HAM crowd sure got riled up by that screw up!

I've never seen Proulx smile so big a smile.  He probably was blushing!

I think HAM should have gotten a free 10Y just for the ref getting the home city name wrong.  :D  :D  :D

Ya, but so is Kenny & Schoen, and E.Lewis in EDM.  The mega-bucks guys aren't having good years... yet.  The middling guys are having a better year.

That's the risk of blowing wads on a couple of key Rs.

P.S. HAM used White as the DNA again... so he can only play 23 snaps.  Since the rule was created, this is by far the most creative use of it.  Not sure I agree with it; but HAM is trying to do something they think will help them.

I thought BLM restructured after the garbage 2023?  I think he's taking way less than normal starter salary now.  He certainly isn't worthy anywhere near $500k.

I thought he was done after his last game last year. He was awesome as a commentator. Some teams are not worth watching.

Quote9) Bo Levi Mitchell, Hamilton Tiger-Cats (A)
Hard money: $225,500
Maximum value: $361,500

The two-time MOP took a pay cut this off-season after earning over $500,000 in 2023 as the second-highest-paid player in the CFL. Mitchell got a $50,000 signing bonus to redo his deal and can earn a $4,000 bonus each time he plays more than half Hamilton's offensive snaps in a regular season game. He could make $15,000 if he does so for five games, $17,000 if he does so for nine games, and $17,000 if he does so for 14 games.

Heads are going to start to roll soon in Hamilton. Roster movement that is, but whether those are PR players given a chance or maybe even some trades are possible at this point. It looked like a few players were just mailing it in as the game progressed.

Maybe we can convince them to trade Sayles back to us for a 3rd or 4th round pick and a couple of neg list players.  I can dream can't I.

Haha, he was pretty much the only DL guy making plays that game!  Doubt they ditch him.

As for BLM, if you have no other options, $350 for BLM isn't bad.  Sometimes his arm and eyes and brain work.  Sometimes.

If I was HAM I'd look long and hard at obtaining Masoli after he can return to play.  Just don't pay any bonus money!!  Those fans would go mental over Masoli returning.

BLM hasn't been the same since mangling his shoulder. Sure he has rehabbed it but he just doesn't throw as effortlessly as he used to. Reminds me a lot of when Travis Lulay had his shoulder mangled. Never was the same and knew enough to hang them up. BLM hasn't figured that out yet.

they can start with their secondary. My flag football team can cover guys better than that!!

Some of these games are hardly professional. What the bell is Hamilton doing?
They can't stay onside.
