August 19 2021 - Farhan Lalji (TSN / Farhan & Moj Podcast), Amar Doman (New BC Lions Owner), Victor Montagliani (CONCACAF President)


Football both on the gridiron and the pitch take centre stage on this episode. 

The Welcome Matt looks at the bizarre protocols that have been put in place for the BC Lions first game back at BC Place in 656 days. 

CFL insider Farhan Lalji follows and tells us why he thinks the BC Lions need to move its practice facility out of Surrey and closer to Vancouver, why the team needs new voices in the front office to revamp the marketing, who he thinks will be kicking for the Lions, and whether or not there will be animosity on Thursday night between the Lions and the Elks.

BC Lions new owner Amar Doman follows Hashtags - the best and worst of Twitter, and explains why he feels that BC Place is still a great venue for the Lions, how they plan on marketing the team to a new audience, why he is the right person to turn the Lions around, and whether he feels that the Lions are in competition with the Seahawks for the football fans dollar.

The Price is Right takes aim at the mess that is the Arizona Coyotes.

CONCACAF president Victor Montagliani joins to talk about his comments towards Canada’s two sports broadcasters and their lack of soccer coverage, what he thinks needs to improve with the soccer coverage in Canada, and tells us what the status is on Vancouver hosting World Cup games in 2026. 

The boys debate who between the Whitecaps and the Lions has solidified itself as the second team in the Vancouver market.

The show wraps with all the Errors & Omissions.
