Football Momentum Building in Ottawa

Published on March 31, 2013 5:35 PM

From last week, but worth linking to. The build up of the team over the next year and some will have a positive impact on the impression the organization makes, despite the best efforts of the history-will-repeat-itself naysayers, spouting the rhetoric that matches their world view without any supporting facts necessary.

For those wanting the correct 1996 attendance figures:

  • 3-15 record
  • High: 28,451
  • Low: 10,125
  • Average: 16,846

Got to wonder if this makes the Lions a little more attractive to buyers before 2014, allowing Mr. Braley to unload one of his teams as promised.

Esks Fined for Tampering

It is a steep learning curve for new GM Ed Hervey. With the SMS in place, it would be a nice touch to have tampering fines count against it, so in this instance Odell Willis would cost another $10,000.
