Welcome to BCLionsDen.ca which was created by myself, Brian Wawryshyn out of a passion for the Canadian Football League and in particular the BC Lions.
Launched for the start of the 2008 CFL season, the site’s goal has been to give fans of the BC Lions more coverage of the team. In a hockey dominated market the Lions are often forgotten about, and we didn’t like it, and decided to try and do something about it.
What started out as a written blog has now evolved into a podcast, and our shows now make up the majority of the content on the site. We’ll still have the occasional opinion piece as well.
In 2017 we formed the Canadian Football Podcast Network, in partnerships with other fan podcasts across the country. This Network looks to grow in the future and we’re excited to be part of it on the ground floor.
What is important to note is that I don’t consider myself a journalist. I’m a fan that invests a lot of time, money and passion into the Canadian Football League. I want it to survive and thrive and to showcase the outstanding players that entertain us every week from June to November. That said, I hold myself accountable for everything we write, and every show we produce. We will praise and we will critique, all of it coming from our experiences and passion as fans.
CFL fans support their league like no other fan base. They take pride in our uniquely Canadian game that is rich in history and heritage and this is our small contribution to that.
Welcome to the Den!
