    Here are notable white Lions:

    LB Javier Glatt (U. of British Colombia): One of CIS (Canadian Inter-university Sports, canada's NCAA) most decorated player ever, Glatt was a three time All-canada pick and 2003 west divion DPOY. He is entering his 4th season, his 1st as a full-time starter. He took the usual white canadian way to get a job, being one of the best STeamers in the league his first 3 seasons. A rising star.

    QB Dave Dickinson(Montana): Excellent College player at montana, lead the grizzlies to their first ever 1-AA national championship. Very accomplished player at the CFL level, having played in 2 grey cups, winning one. Was CFL MVP in 2000 and a 2-time all-CFL. Also got 2 years of NFL experience with the chargers. An undersized, take-all challenge type, the warrior is nearing the end of his career, being victim to many concussion lately.

    QB Buck Pierce(New Mexico State): A young gunslinger, Pierce is the future in BC. Got a strong, accurate arm. May be a little injury-prone.

    OL Rob Murphy(Ohio State): The 5-year NFL vet is entering his 2nd CFL campaign after winning the league's Outstanding Lineman award and all-CFL last year. A monster who plays to the hustle on each snap. Former first-team All-American in college.

    WR Jason Clermont(Regina): Former 4th overall pick. Possess a rare frame and strengh for the position. Great hands. Played in East-West Shrine game after his '01 All-Canadian season. Was West ROY in '02 and an All-West selection in '03(Also named Canadian POY) Clermont is a leader on th Lions, and their most reliable target. Looks like a FB but move like a receiver.

    DE Brent Johnson(Ohio State): Current CFL sack king(for the second consecutive year), reigning CFL DPOY and 2-time Canadian POY, also a 2-time All-CFL player. Great at defending the run. Former All-Big 10 selection in college. You just got to wonder how those kinds gets through the NFL cracks and comes play in canada. Yup, I REALLY wonder why... [​IMG]

    other white lions:
    S Tad Craford(Colombia), K Paul McCaullum(Surrey), WR Bret Anderson(Simon Fraser) (11-year veteran retired in '04 to become a firefighter, signed again in '05 to be kickoff returner), LB Jason Pottinger(McMaster) (future star, '06 second overall pick), RB Andre Sadeghian(McMaster), LB Tyson Craiggs(Saskatchewan),C Dean Valli(Simon Fraser), OL Kelly Bates(Saskatchewan),OL Jason Jimenez (Southern Miss),C Angus Reid(Simon Fraser),OL Lorne Plante(Manitoba), WR Adam Nicolson(Ottawa),DT Matt Kirk(Queen's),LB Ricky Foley(York) (Spent parts of '06 TC with the Ravens, an oustanding feat for a player comming out of the CIS),Edited by: Gi-15

    Adam Nicolson was their 1st round pick this year, he could become an impact player, but has not yet seen extensive action.

    I believe Brent Johnson actually said that as a Canadian, he just wants to play in the CFL and couldn't give a damn about the NFL.

    well the guy is a proud canadian and he don't care much about the kind of money he could make in the NFL. He prefer to be a star at an inferior level and thats his right. I really respect that.

    So how about cooling off and getting a beer? Oh, hurry up, your liquore stores and bars close in a few minutes. Jokin' with you man. [​IMG]

    Yes, he is a very respectable person but that's no reason to laugh. What are weed prices in Quebec nowadays?

    lol, good one.

    I wasn't laughing at him at all, I was laughing at my own statement.

    Altough, those guys are pretty rare. It seems that every CFLer who have any kind of success always think about the NFL.

    With some amazing running, darting and weaving as he carried the ball himself on many rushes during the game, fleet-footed quarterback Travis Lulay was instrumental in the BC Lion's win on Sunday.

    Gi-15 where you been? The site misses your Canadian knowledge of the CFL. Your write-ups of the CFL were a great read.
