Braley says his priority is BMO Field lease for Argonauts

Toronto Argonauts owner David Braley has people kicking the tires of the franchise he hopes to sell, but his top priority is securing the team a lease at BMO Field. The Argos and B.C. Lions -- the CFL teams Braley owns -- have been for sale since last September when the 73-year-old Hamilton businessman stated he'd sell one or both by his 75th birthday.

Quarterbacks endangered species in CFL

B.C. Lions quarterback Kevin Glenn has been able to stay clear of the injury epidemic which has resulted in several quarterbacks going down in the CFL this season.

The B.C. Lions defence dominated Winnipeg last Saturday.

The Seattle Seahawks reminded football fans last season that defence still plays a major role in winning championships - just no longer on their own. Their offence was equally intimidating during the year, often putting up enough points to make it virtually impossible for any team to mount a comeback.

Backup Brohm will be ready

In a weird CFL season that is chewing up starting quarterbacks and increasingly looking like the team with the best backup man will prevail, the Winnipeg Blue Bombers may be about to find out how theirs measures up. Even as injured starter Drew Willy was being examined by doctors in Winnipeg on Sunday, backup Brian Brohm was flying home to Louisville for a team bye week with the full knowledge he could be about to make his first career CFL start when he returns.

Gut-check time for Bombers

And so there was no point, really, in beating around the bush with the head coach of the Winnipeg Blue Bombers late Saturday night. Because amid all the chaff of a once promising season now gone horribly wrong, the only question for the leader of this engimatic Winnipeg Blue Bombers team following a 26-9 loss to the B.C. Lions that still mattered was this: Mike O'Shea's answer -- as always -- was predictable.
