Kicker comes to terms...
Febuary 21st 2004
Duncan O'Mahony has finally signed with the Lions today. It was widely specualted that he wouldn't sing with the club, and that he'd prefer to stay in Calgary. The deal is for 2 years, plus an option. O'Mahoney is well known for his punting skills, but his field goals were an area of concern last year as he struggled with them.
The B.C Lion History
page was also updated with a little bit more information.
Signings all around!...
Febuary 19th 2004
2003 Rookie of the Year, Frank Cutolo has signed a contract extention with the club yesterday. Defensive end David Warren also signed a contract wit the Lions yesterday too.
In today's news, the Pronince has reported that ex-Stamp Otis Floyd has be signed. You may know Flyod's name from the whole "helmet tossing" incident where he hit a referee with his helmet last year.
Free agent signing and a little bit more...
Febuary 15th 2004
Just a little reminder that CFL teams can sign free agents after midnight tonight. The Lions are reportedly intereted in Calgary Stampeder offensive lineman, Bobby Singh. What makes Singh even more valuabe is that he's a Canadian. We, of course will report with any free agent signing the Lions have in the coming days.

Clermont wants to stay in the Pride, no new turf this year and Penticton or Kamloops being looked at for training camp
Febuary 12th 2004
This was reported in today's Province newspaper, I've just put the most important part in italics.
What if the Lions didn't sign anyone once CFL free agency begins next week, but locked up one of their most marketable Canadian players for some time to come?
A good offseason? How about a great one? And Jason Clermont is willing to make it happen.
The well-grounded 25-year-old slotback has put his NFL dreams behind him and wants to sign a contract extension with the Lions.
"My goal is to be at the 2005 Grey Cup with us defending our championship in B.C.," said Clermont, who auditioned for three NFL teams since November.
"I'd like to set a plan for the next couple of years. I don't think the team has to worry about me being a guy who wants to jump ship every time he's got an option."
Three words come to mind if you're Wally Buono: Where's the pen?
"We're discussing the whole thing right now," said the Lions coach, who presumably was less restrained after Clermont recently visited him without an agent and wanted to talk.
It's a big break for a team that operated under the lingering notion the Regina native was eager to return home and play for Saskatchewan in 2005 once he hit the CFL free agent market.
Clearly, though, the Lions' answer to Trevor Linden understands he can be a leader and contributor on a CFL team as opposed to a highly-paid NFL understudy.
The only people who weren't pumped initially about Clermont's decision to stay were his family.
"We talked, and they hoped I would sign in Saskatchewan, but said 'whatever makes you happy,'" related Clermont.
"I just like what's going on here."
With field conflicts blocking a return to Chilliwack, the Lions are looking at Penticton and Kamloops as a home for training camp, which starts May 22 for all CFL clubs. ... An official with B.C. Place Stadium said there's nothing in next year's budget to replace the artificial surface at the dome, despite broadcast reports to the contrary. ... Buono has also discussed a new deal for fellow slotback Geroy Simon. ... Two extras who finished last season with B.C. have signed NFL contracts -- Chris Taylor will be at training camp of the Houston Texans, while Santonio Beard was picked up by Denver.
Editorials and a small milestone
Febuary 9th 2004
A new editorial is up in the section oddly enough called 'Editorials'. It's about CFL Commissioner, Tom Wright and his impact since he came to the CFL. Our forums reached a small milestone today with 400 posts.
Lewis & Williams Re-signed
Febuary 4th, 2004
In an announcement today, cornerback Bo Lewis and defensive tackle Tyrone Williams were both re-signed by the club today. Williams was second on the team with 6 sacks last year. Lewis on the other hand has spent the last 6 years with the Lions, and appeared in 12 games before injuring his knee.

What do you all think of the new layout? I decided the site could use a small face-lift in the looks department, the old design was so crude and basic, and this one is much better, and still very easy to navigate around the site. A big thanks to OSWD.ORG
for the design!
