so-so game. That’s not the way we envisioned (the season). Whether this is sending a message or not, I guess the message I want to send is: We need help, and Buck can help us.” The Lions, 6-4 following a loss to Hamilton in Guelph, Ont., over the weekend, are in danger of having to play away from B.C. Place Stadium in the playoffs. “Hamilton came here (the previous week), didn’t win, they went home and they had an attitude,” said Buono. “We came back after a Montreal loss with an attitude. You can’t pick and choose when you’re gonna play with an attitude. Right now, our club is picking and choosing when we’re playing with an attitude, and that’s a dangerous thing to do. “All the clubs are tough, all the clubs are competitive, and it’s the attitude that gets you over the hump.” More consistency was expected from a veteran-laden club that finished 13-5 last season and was left seething from an upset loss at home to Calgary in the West Final. Buono said the

Lions’ current plight is a characteristic of a veteran club that realizes the playoffs count that most. “How much does a (regular) season really mean?” Buono asked. “Well, to me, it means a lot, because a home playoff game is an important game to have. Biggest game of the year is something that we should be striving for. You have to be a real pro. “People that pay

for tickets, they expect that, and we’ve been really good at home and we’ve been really, I think, average and less than average on the road.” But it remains to be seen how much Pierce, who turns 32 in November, can really help the cause on the field given his injury history and his struggles this season in Winnipeg, where he was displaced as the starter.
