The New

Published on December 7, 2015 8:45 PM

The league and seven team sites (Hamilton still has their redesign from earlier this year while Edmonton has not applied the new design (yet)) re-launched today with a consistent, fresh, responsive design for all platforms.

I will withhold complete comment for a while as we see how the site(s) add/improve in the first few weeks. On some fronts, a welcome change and a step up to modern practices. In terms of information, the new launch that was to put me (gladly) out of business does not have me concerned.

Update: The promise is historical and expanded stats for recent seasons launching in February with more real-time stats starting next season with ambitious plans to grow. Could be the end of this little experiment.

A great on the field, but more importantly, a great off of the field as well. My condolences to the Burden family.

Lions Buyer Assessment Underway

Published on December 1, 2015 8:36 PM

From two weeks ago, David Braley is starting the process of assessing 19 interested buyers of the BC Lions, starting with 14 local parties expressing a desire to purchase a majority stake in the franchise. There is no deadline set for the sale and transfer to be complete, and could take until the end of next year or longer.
