  • Eskimos 50/50 chaos could be CFL's opportunity - Sportsnet.ca
    Currah speaking to th e Edmonton Journal best summed up the optimism of those who waited for over an hour in line I have this weird belief that if I somehow get to the front of the line it s meant to be he said Alas the crush was so severe that the Eskimos could not even announce the winning ticket during the fourth quarter as is traditional The team listed the winning ticket 280731C on its web site sometime over night It paid exactly 348 534 That s right nearly 350 000 Ticket sellers who usually restock the paper in their vending machines once per night put six or seven rolls in on this night People were butting into the line then nearly getting into fist fights with someone who butted in ahead of them As the joke went whoever wins will be the third highest paid player in the CFL That total as amazing as it seems for a night at a football game is in the neighborhood of what the Toronto Maple Leafs hand out in total over the first three quarters of their home schedule The 50 50 is a Western Canadian phenomenon A Toronto Star article published in February of 2013 listed the average 50 50 pots at Canadian NHL arenas and the four Western Canadian teams ranked first through fourth Vancouver then Edmonton Winnipeg and Calgary The Flames average of 36 000 per game was twice that of the Ottawa Senators 18 200 who topped the Eastern clubs The reason is partially due to Ontario gaming rules that do not allow sellers to use computerized hand held machines that chart the pot in real time thus inducing sales as the pot climbs But as long as we ve been covering sports the pots out East have never compared to those in the West On an NHL Saturday night in Edmonton or Vancouver it isn t uncommon for a winner to take home 70 000 In Toronto that number sits at around 10 000 So the question becomes if a bloated 50 50 draw can help attendance in a good CFL town like Edmonton can it do the same in Hamilton or Toronto What if a team added the first 50 000 to the pot Would the increased ticket and concession sales offset that investment Then would that exposure to the product produce new fans Like a baseball promotion maybe we will see 50 50 Night at a CFL stadium near you sometime soon When or if that happens they ll be more prepared for the onslaught than the folks at Commonwealth were on Thursday night 2Ffootball 2Fcfl 2Fedmonton eskimos 5050 draw calgary stampeders cfl outrage 2F Join the Discussion EDITORS PICKS McDavid looks for silver lining in injury situation 1 hour ago How Holm derailed the Rousey hype train 3 hours ago Will Donaldson get long term offer from Jays this winter 11 hours ago Matt Duchene handling Avalanche trade rumours like a pro

  • Toronto to host Grey Cup in 2016, Ottawa in 2017 - Sportsnet.ca
    award Ottawa the 2017 game To many in league circles it will come as no surprise that these cities will be awarded the Grey Cup which can generate upwards of 4 million in profit for the host club depending on the gate and amount of government money received to host the festival surrounding each championship week When Ottawa returned to the CFL in 2014 the league assured ownership it would receive a Grey Cup as part of the expansion bid The same occurred in Toronto when new owners acquired the franchise from David Braley in the spring While Grey Cup revenues had been a slam dunk for much of the last decade the event has lost some of its lustre recently The game did not sell out in Vancouver last year and television viewership dipped for the Calgary Hamilton game In Winnipeg organizers announced that about a third of the tickets still remain for this November s championship which will have a total attendance figure of under 40 000 There is no timetable on an announcement from the league on the awarding of the Toronto and Ottawa Grey Cup games but it likely won t be until after the governors gather in the fall 2Ffootball 2Fcfl 2Ftoronto to host grey cup in 2016 ottawa in 2017 2F Join the Discussion EDITORS PICKS McDavid looks for silver lining in injury situation 1 hour ago How Holm derailed the Rousey hype train 3 hours ago Will Donaldson get long term offer from Jays this winter 11 hours ago Matt Duchene handling Avalanche trade rumours like a pro 1 hour ago The time Michael Jordan carried Max Domi 6 hours ago Bases Covered Could Cueto land with the Yankees 4 hours ago Forrest They threw bags of urine at us 5 hours ago NHL commissioner Gary Bettman s latest salary revealed 9 hours ago MOST DISCUSSED Red hot Rangers score late to end Maple Leafs win streak 290 COMMENTS Will Donaldson get long term offer from Blue Jays this off season 81 COMMENTS Mayweather 50 Cent chirp Rousey on Instagram 28 COMMENTS Weekend Takeaways James Reimer becoming a valuable asset 48 COMMENTS Connor McDavid won t say if Flyers hit was clean or dirty 58 COMMENTS Week 11 CFL picks A lot on line in Labour Day Classics Beck relieves injured Lulay leads Lions over Als GET A BONUS GIFT SUBSCRIBE Sports NHL MLB NBA NFL CFL SOCCER CURLING TENNIS AUTO RACING More MAGAZINE TELEVISION RADIO TIM SID INSIDERS SN WORLD SN NOW RSS Social FACEBOOK TWITTER YOUTUBE GOOGLE About SN MEDIA CENTRE COMPANY INFO ADVERTISE FAQ FEEDBACK 2000 2015 Rogers Media All rights reserved Privacy Policy Ad Choices Terms of Service Create a new password We ve sent an email with instructions to create a new password Your existing password has not been changed Close Create a new password We ll send you a link to create a new password forgotPasswordForm traditionalSignIn emailAddress backButton forgotPassword sendButton forgotPasswordForm Legal Acceptance legalAcceptancePostLoginForm By clicking

  • Ex-NFLer Beck grateful to be back on gridiron - Sportsnet.ca
    Texans he still had a strong desire to play so he came to Canada Beck has not started a game at the pro level since November 2011 when he played his last NFL game for the Washington Redskins against the San Francisco 49ers In his second season with the Lions Beck missed B C s playoff loss to Montreal last fall due to a concussion The viral hepatitis knocked him out of training camp and this year s pre season Beck looked good coming off the bench to lead B C to a win in Montreal last Thursday and is being rewarded with a start I m just grateful that I got to play football this season regardless if it was starting or not starting said Beck Considering the fact that a couple months ago I was wondering if football was done I was just happy to go out there and put the helmet on in the beginning Although Sunday s game against the Redblacks 3 4 will mark his first CFL start he has started a game in Canada before In his second last NFL game in October 2011 he was sacked 10 times as the Redskins fell 23 0 to the Buffalo Bills in Toronto Yeah that didn t go too well said Beck That happens sometimes in life So hopefully Sunday s game goes better With Lulay out Beck is B C s only active veteran QB as well as the CFL s oldest healthy starting pivot Backup quarterback Jonathon Jennings and Greg McGhee who will move to No 3 from the practice roster on Sunday are both rookies Lions coach Jeff Tedford is glad to have Beck s veteran presence under centre He s an older guy who s played a long time and really prides himself on preparation said Tedford So he s not going to go in there and be big eyed about things Meanwhile Lulay who missed most of 2014 with a shoulder injury said there is a reasonable chance he could return within the minimum three weeks The timeline s shorter than with the shoulder so there s a sense of urgency from the get go said Lulay 2Ffootball 2Fcfl 2Fex nfler beck grateful to be back on gridiron 2F Join the Discussion EDITORS PICKS McDavid looks for silver lining in injury situation 1 hour ago How Holm derailed the Rousey hype train 3 hours ago Will Donaldson get long term offer from Jays this winter 11 hours ago Matt Duchene handling Avalanche trade rumours like a pro 1 hour ago The time Michael Jordan carried Max Domi 6 hours ago Bases Covered Could Cueto land with the Yankees 4 hours ago Forrest They threw bags of urine at us 5 hours ago NHL commissioner Gary Bettman s latest salary revealed 9 hours ago MOST DISCUSSED Red hot Rangers score late to end Maple Leafs win streak 291 COMMENTS Will Donaldson get long term offer from Blue Jays this off season 85

  • Popp: Alouettes didn't get Sam's best - Sportsnet.ca
    Then he got Hollywood status with Dancing With the Stars So he is a person at 25 years of age who has a lot on him from all different angles As he self described in his release over the last 18 months things have really changed for him In that time between when he left the Rams and when we got him I don t know what happened with these things there are multiple factors but we never got his best We tried to help him both on and off the field as we do with all our players We can speculate on whether or not he would have ever lived up to his physical potential as a pass rusher I think he would But we ll never know Unless he gets himself right DB There were multiple reports about animosity towards him in the locker room surrounding preferential treatment Is that something you observed JP Coaches monitor that and unless I m getting feedback about it I don t put a lot of credence in it When stuff like that is coming out you gotta look to why You talk to the coach you talk to the position coach you talk to the trainers you talk to the support staff and you talk to the players He was treated the same as the rest of the players and from our people or from me he never asked for anything else All the players are treated the same and that s not from me that s from ownership on down People may say Well why did he get paid and other people didn t when he left the team for personal reasons You pick and choose who re going to be your reserve players He didn t dress but was a reserve and got paid That was the decision If you think he can help your team in the future if you thank he can eventually emerge and become an elite pass rusher someone who can change the dynamic of a game and what you do on defence than you do it We had 16 guys on the six game injured list We had three on the one game That is 19 guys that are paid in full None of them were playing So the vast majority of our guys are getting paid their full salary For any players that have issue with that that s not their decision that s a management decision that s ownership s decision Is that media driven Is that players I don t know where that starts but I can tell you that goes on all the time it really does We have players go home to take care of stuff all the time One was Fred Stamps one was a practice roster guy Nobody has a problem with that but when it is Michael Sam it is a story DB Knowing that fact would you do anything differently now JP This is a

  • CFL anti-domestic violence initiatives working - Sportsnet.ca
    I ve been working in the field of violence against women â for 32 years and the biggest deal I ve ever come across is the partnership we built with the B C Lions she said What the CFL has done is in the same category I ve just never seen anything like it Player and staff training sessions are slated to begin next year though Porteous has already held one for the entire Lions team As for the outreach component football was a logical option said Porteous not because football players are more violent but because it s a masculine sport of larger than life men who can carry a conversation about masculinity the way feminists can t Lulay said he believes violence against women is more prevalent in sports especially male dominated sports He attributes that partly to what he calls a crisis in masculinity noting football players are often marketed as modern day gladiators All of that can lead to the impression of what it is to be a man when really it s about how you treat other people as opposed to just how much weight do you lift how hard can you crash into another human It s a view shared by lawyer and three time U S Olympic gold medal swimmer Nancy Hogshead Makar who founded Champion Women to advocate for women and girls in sport Domestic violence is more common among athletes in male dominated sports said Hogshead Makar who points partly to an athlete culture that she says disrespects women and equates femininity with weakness It takes time to undo a culture she said All of their lives they ve been told female equals second class Hogshead Makar welcomed the CFL s program but warned that the most important element of any effective anti violence project is discipline Sports associations need to feel they can sanction even their most indispensable star players she said What s great about the Canadian Football League is they didn t have to Nobody was holding a hammer over their heads added Hogshead Makar My hat s off to them for that 2Ffootball 2Fcfl 2Fcfl anti domestic violence initiatives working 2F Join the Discussion EDITORS PICKS McDavid looks for silver lining in injury situation 1 hour ago How Holm derailed the Rousey hype train 3 hours ago Will Donaldson get long term offer from Jays this winter 11 hours ago Matt Duchene handling Avalanche trade rumours like a pro 1 hour ago The time Michael Jordan carried Max Domi 6 hours ago Bases Covered Could Cueto land with the Yankees 4 hours ago Forrest They threw bags of urine at us 5 hours ago NHL commissioner Gary Bettman s latest salary revealed 9 hours ago MOST DISCUSSED Red hot Rangers score late to end Maple Leafs win streak 291 COMMENTS Will Donaldson get long term offer from Blue Jays this off season 85 COMMENTS Mayweather 50 Cent chirp Rousey on Instagram 28 COMMENTS Weekend Takeaways James Reimer

  • Cahoon, Okeke, Buono inducted into Canadian HOF - Sportsnet.ca
    coaching career with them but he made his mark on the CFL as a head coach in Calgary and B C Mostly he is known for developing a spectacular string of quarterbacks including Doug Flutie Jeff Garcia Dave Dickenson Danny Barrett Henry Burris Travis Lulay and Casey Printers Buono coached 13 years in Calgary posted a 153 79 2 record and won three Cups He coached the Lions from 2003 to 2011 and added two more Cups He passed Don Matthews for the most coaching wins in CFL history with 254 I m going to say this I always believed that Don Matthews was the best coach in this league said Buono I don t measure it by wins Don did it a certain way He set the standard for great coaching The fact that I coached a year longer than him gave me a few more wins I guess Roberts was a quick little back who owned the Blue Bombers record book for rushing including most career yards with 9 987 and most rushing touchdowns with 64 In his career he carried 1 918 times for 10 285 yards and 69 TDs When you start playing football you never envision being inducted into a hall of fame he said It s a league with great history and to be part of that is very special to me I m humbled by it Roberts returned home to Anaheim Calif after his career and now has a day job and does some coaching on the side It s funny because I was known as a coach killer he said with a laugh Maybe not a coach killer but a guy that might have caused some little difficulties in the offices But working with kids Trying to give back You miss the sport Lumsden got the nod for his university career He helped the Ottawa Gee Gees to an 11 0 season and Vanier Cup in 1975 And for his CFL accomplishments He won four Grey Cups three with Edmonton and another as GM of the Hamilton Tiger Cats Then he became a university coach currently at Guelph What he was best known for was being a rare Canadian to play in the backfield When I came out of Ottawa I don t think there were any Canadian running backs he said Typically Canadian kids moved to tight end or slotback In Toronto Russ Jackson was my first head coach and he put me at fullback and I got the opportunity and played well So maybe that tipped the balance so that Canadians could play that position There were lots of great ones after me I maybe kicked the door open a bit Racine waited decades for the Hall of Fame call The three time Eastern all star played 274 games for Ottawa from 1960 to 1974 and had his No 62 retired by the Rough Riders He never kicked in high school but was asked to do kickoffs and then took
