    TC Report - Day Four

    Okay. Just got back from training camp and finally back in the office. Today was the first day that coaches from the Winnipeg High School Football League were invited on the field to take in the practice. We were originally told to stick to the sidelines but MOS came over immediately and invited us on the field and to go ahead and focus on whatever position we were interested in. I tried to walk around a bit but was always drawn to the offensive line, running backs and offense as a whole. I'll say this. we have some big boys on the Oline and Dline that can move very quickly. Watched some one on ones in the first sessions and while this is usually slanted towards defensive aggression, Coach Wiley had his boys fighting up a storm. Picard is an animal and while Chung may not be technically skilled yet, you can see him picking up tips from the coaching staff. Coach Wiley even came over to a couple of us coaches and gave us some tips that he uses to teach fundamentals. Awesome. Jace Daniels and Devin Tyler were getting some long looks with the first team Oline. Greaves is still in there but his relaxed nature definitely opens the door for some of the young guys to jump in a get a look. As Coach Wiley suggested, it don't mean s*** until game situations come into play. As for receivers, Nick Moore looked amazing. If he stays healthy, he will easily be a league leader. Just so much speed after he catches the ball. Kris Bastien made a couple of nice grabs on some long balls and looks very quick as well. I only noticed L.Tunei once today as he fought off 2 defenders for a catch in the second half of practice (no shoulder pads for second half). Tunei does look to be a bigger guy but some of those DBs do as well so tough to tell from my vantage point. Saw some nice catches from Adamas and Clemons as well. As for Jordan Reaves, man, i think he makes the team this year. He made some nice catches today, often adjusting to the DBs to get to the ball. He is a big strong kid. Maybe he is not running his routes 100% but from my sideline view, they sure were giving him every opportunity to figure it out. QBs all looked good today I thought. There was a fairly good breeze going from West to East so that made the "across the field" throw either very easy or very hard. Truthfully, they all looked good. Not sure how Yantz makes this team as the top 4 all made some nice throws today. Running backs all had moments of shine today with Paris Cotton leading the way. Marshall and Scott both broke a couple of long ones too but its sometimes tough to tell if they would have broken free if the defense was given the chance to "light 'em up". Tough call. Sherman filled in for Leggett and didn't look out of place. He is pretty vocal out there. Not as vocal as Coach Miles but close. Dline Coach commands a lot of respect. You can see that he wants them going hard all the time. Loved what Greg Peach does out there. He is fighting hard for his job. Great competition on the line. I'll try to get out there again tomorrow. Let me know if there is anything in particular you want me to look at. Keep in mind, i think the second half of practice tomorrow is all special teams.

    Making the league look bad: item #2837

    What a joke Rider Nation has turned into. Maybe you should rescind the invitation to your idiotic coach, as he's got far more to do with your dumpster fire of a team this year than Jeffery Orridge does. It blows my mind that you guys despise Orridge as much as you do, he's got nothing to do with why your team is such a disaster. Typical though, look for anything to cling on to the hopes that you guys aren't an absolute mess, it's just "Big Brother sticking it to us" Newsflash - this us against the world mentality doesn't do anything but make you guys look like a bunch of clowns. If you're as important to the league as you all claim to be (disclaimer: you're not) then why would the league purposely mess with you? You can't even get your conspiracy theories right. Thank god I've realized that the keyboard warriors who represent Saskatchewan really have nothing in common with the fans who sit in the stands, because I yet again had a wonderful gameday experience in Regina this weekend. It's only when I get on the internet that Rider fans make me want to slam my head against the nearest blunt object.

    Back in the lineup......

    After months of pretty intense treatments......am now facing a pretty long rehab, after being knocked out of the lineup, for the last quarter of this season. But yesterday the game films were reviewed and my med team have given the verdict........ Final score: Do or Die........................1 Head and Neck Cancer...0 However it will be a while before I can raise a Bombay, in salute. Might even change my user name....to Do. Now looking forward to subjecting folks to my ole school ways, on this board for a long time to come. Go Blue!!!

    I think I've literally just about had it with internet Rider fans. There are quite a number of them (CalgaryRiderFan, Beacon.x, Bingo_Arms, Huff Daddy and several others whose names just elude me right now) that are tolerable, awesome guys to talk football with but man, the majority of people over at Riderfans.com are the biggest bunch of deluded dumb as a post mouth breathers I've ever encountered. It's a shame, because every year I go to Regina for every single away game we have there, the people that I meet are awesome. It's a great city to go watch a game and the fans that are invested in supporting the Riders are great to be around. But that website is a cesspool of stupidity. The stuff I've read on that site is some of the most ridiculous nonsense I've ever imagined. Very few people on there have any clue about football as it relates to anything outside their province and trying to use any kind of reasoning with them is like talking to a doorknob. Wake up and smell the coffee, Rider fans. Your team is the worst team in the CFL, your coach is the laughing stock of the entire league and your GM somehow manages to have no clue what your head coach and defensive coordinator and media recruiting coordinator are doing, despite them all being the same person. You're using the last wear on the tires of old broken down pieces like Kevin Glenn, Jovon Johnson and Peter Dyakowski. Your coach can't stop fetishizing about the kudos he'll get if FINALLY he manages to turn a fullback into a defensive back or a tackle into a receiver and it affects the quality of your roster from top to bottom. You scout and house somewhere in the neighborhood of 300 players, yet can't find a single guy to play defensive back and somehow have to settle for convincing yourselves that Ed Gainey is serviceable. Maybe AC Leonard will stop going offside. Maybe Brenden Labatte won't get hurt for the 47th time. Maybe Henoc Muamba will stop being too fat. Maybe Duron Carter will keep his trap shut for once. Maybe Linden Gaydosh is duct taped together well enough to hold up for 3 or 4 games. Maybe Jordan Reaves will stop dealing cocaine. And maybe if all of that happens, you might have enough of a football team to piece together 7 or 8 wins this year. Until then, know your place, shut up and enjoy the basement. I can't wait until we stomp these guys on Saturday.

    Watched approx 45 min of camp this morning: A lady had her kid on a leash watching practice. Langkford nearly broke Johnson's ankles in a one on one, then dropped the pass. Johnson picked the ball up and flipped it to Langkford, who dropped it again. Ugly sequence for both guys... In goal line 12 on 12, Nevis nearly took the handoff he beat his guy so badly. In one one ones, I only saw an OL beat him once, and it was Intzandt. Ekakite looked better than Butcher today imo. Based on his size, it seems like he should have a better bullrush than he does. Weird to say of a 300 pound man, but Ekakite looks small. It's bc he's shortest guy in his group. Thomas looked great. Put two different ol on their backs. Hardrick is crazy. He'd sprint to the back of the endzone after each rep. He won most of the reps I saw. I've been to two practices and thought Bostic looked good both times. Winning most of his 1 on 1s. He and Green have both looked better than Jeffcoat in the reps I've watched. Jeffcoat got handled pretty easily in each rep I saw today. Pretty small sample though. I'm not the biggest Kenny Stafford fan, but he's looked good each time I've watched him. I'l post more if I think of anything else.

    Originally, we got Drew Willy from SK for Jade Etienne. So if my algebra is correct, we traded Jade Etienne for a 1st, a 3rd, and TJ Heath.

    Main Camp

    Only stayed for early practice, got a little wet outside and am made of sugar. First things first, guys I am actually excited to say that Richards is going to be okay! He was all over the field today and he looked faster today then yesterday. Took some contact and held on the ball a few times. This guy will be able to stretch the field for sure if he has a chance this year. He had 2 really solid box outs on some DB's today and Willy found him often. Gerrard Sheppard was back practicing, not a huge deal but made a nice grab so note worthy. Not a lot of guys going to catch R Smith if he sees green he's gone! (I would be too if I came from Saskabush) Darvin Adams and Bruce Johnson chirping a fair amount on 1 on 1's, all it fun it seemed but Adams burned him 3 times with ease. Adams also played in the slot for one of the team scrimmages, and he looked super comfortable there. Really big target in the middle, easy for Drew to find with a tall DL barring down on him Now as per request I watched a lot of the D today and the best thing to report Noeller already pointed out, Corney stole Bryants lunch and then hung him from the flag pole. Sick Move! Another play worth noting was big Louie Richardson busting the oline and wrapping up Harris for about a 5 yd loss. The D sideline loved it and so did the fans, everyone around me enjoyed that play! The great thing about this play was that had Richardson not tagged Harris, Teague would have, he was right beside him. They talked about it after on the sideline. Anderson may be gone from the interior but enter The Butcher, he was dbl teamed whenever on the field and at least one time that I saw, triple teamed. He has a lot of push in those legs and will presumably spell Shologan/Cummings/Thomas during the games. Fun to watch, wish you could have been there (yeah, I'm an ass) Not other notables from today from the Dline, they are a really strong group though Teague was also very vocal today, shifting guys where they needed to be calling out plays/formations, coaching guys on the sideline. Loffler played some coverage on some 1 on 1's, now I don't know what they are necessarily looking for in this drill but he should definitely stick to safety, got caught flat footed on a cpl dbl moves but he has pretty decent catch up speed. Waggoner did well at coverage on 1 on 1's with RBs, other than that moved well in scrimmages, looks good on ST. Half the time I saw him on the sideline though, 22 wasn't called very often Fogg had another solid day, really nice pass deflection on an out that was note worthy. He seems to be getting along with the vets well, they are always talking to Fogg or Posey and doesn't come off in a demeaning way, more encouraging and comrade-re. Posey also had a really good day, lot's of fire in him and he let everyone know it lol. Willy through a couple of picks today but the 2 I saw was WR error. He is also throwing 50% of the balls so it's going to happen as he tries to find chemistry with his WR. Nichols overthrew a tonne again today and just looked bad. Davis on the other hand looked good, dropped a couple nice passes in stride. Mayo and Davis looked strong today, Velteung seemed to be stretching a lot, didn't run a lot of routes today and was receiving punts today, nor was McDuffie so I can't say much about that. Cone still looked like a cone, Vitt didn't get much play today and Bastien looked bad today. RBs all look good, coaches are going to have a really tough time here. That's all for me, and just remember guys this is just my opinion, I am definitely not a football coach

    Rookie Camp Report May 29

    I went to the first hour of rookie camp today. A few random observations: Garrett Waggoner was at safety the entire time. He really stood out...he has lots of energy and is very vocal. I see him as eventually a defensive leader on the team, a guy other players want to play for and lifts the performance of everyone around him. Addison Richards and Lavasier Tuinei stood out at the WR spot. Forget about the Richards/Etienne comparison as Richards is a big solid guy. And the hair is as impressive in person! Childs dropped an easy pass in the short passing drills. In the very short time I watched him, he came across as a guy who thinks he's already made the team. Brendan Morgan was at DB. I watched the RBs for a while, as I was particularly interested in seeing Bradley Randle up close, but none of the RBs really stood out to me. Buck was coaching QB handoffs when I was watching them. I noticed there was 6 QBs at practice today. Not sure who the 6th one is. Mims is a massive, massive man. I saw him standing next to Chungh and he made Chungh look small. Mims was playing left tackle today and Chungh was in at left guard (Greaves spot). Quinn Everett and Jace Daniels were taking reps at center. I noticed Buck Pierce was a lot more vocal, compared to last year. Buck was a lot more involved in explaining the offensive concepts, where last year that was entirely Marcel. Looks like another step in Buck's development towards becoming an OC. No sign of Bob Wylie. Paul Charboneau was coaching the OL.

    Thank you, admin/mods

    I was just over at Rider Fans checking out the delusional posting that is going on over there after reading about it here. After reading one thread in particular it really made me appreciate (again) how great MBB and the mods are. The way this forum is moderated is so superior to RF it ain't even funny. Here the rules are applied fairly (IMO) and when things get out of hand the reaction is swift. At RF, it seems like the rules only apply to posters who are critical of the Rider organization and/or are perceived to be fans of other teams. Anyone who posts anything perceived to be negative is labelled a "troll" and can be called every name in the book without the mods stepping in while the so-called "troll" will be banned at the drop of a hat even when what they post is factually correct. Again, thank you to everyone - admin, mods and posters - for making this such a great place to post.

    Main Camp

    Went to Practice today...raining most of the time for the players, but didn't seem to hold them back at all. We have a lot of really good looking receivers, which we couldn't say in previous years. First...the latest receiver into camp #72 Lestar Jean...no thanks...tall but not fast, doesn't look nearly as athletic as most of the others, is not agressive enough and drops some. Dressler and Smith? both look really good, especially Smith, great hands and movement, and a motor that doesn't quit. Jace Davis and Justin Talley, both of them still look really good. To bad Sheppard is injured. Veltung also looked very good...Kohlert looks very good, Bastien not so much. Now for Richards...don't know if he is still nursing the injury...but he is slow off the line, and to me looks slow in general, and doesn't have an easy time getting open. He was fine on a couple of quick hitters but other than that...well...I think Vitt is better than him but we will see. Feoli-Guido made some nice catches but also dropped a couple of fpretty easy ones. McDuffie...is a good find. He is very quick with really good lateral movement, and catches very well. Will be interesting to see him returning kicks. As mentioned Adams got hurt on one play, Kevin Cone is way better than Lestar Jean in my opinion. We are going to have to make some tough cuts. Andrew Harris looks fantastic, and gives it his all on every play. For me a toss up between Anderson and Flanders. Medlock was attempting kicks from mid field, he was wide on one and short on two others, but not by much and in wet conditions. Teague Sherman was his holder. Always easier for me to watch offence, but Euclid Cummings, and Nate Collins look really good. Justin Cole Also. Jake Thomas just breezed past the OL on one on ones. Butcher is one large man, and is obviously very strong and not particularly slow for a man his size. Westerman was Westerman no more needs to be said. It is not hard to tell that Corney really wants to learn, he is talking to the coach to get more instruction. Still impressed with Loffler, he may surprise a few people. I though Celiscar and Fogg has very good days. Bruce Johnson not so much. There were probably others the coaches thought were good, but hard to track everyone. Quarterbacks? They all had their moments, but for me and in more than one practice...Brian Bennett looks better than Dominique Davis. He moves better and has a better arm, trouble is that he is less experienced. One thing is for sure...the QB's will have a lot more options on offence than the last few years. Now they just have to take advantage of them.

    Quick update from camp - went Monday and Tuesday. I missed the first half Monday, and so the last hour and a bit I saw was all special teams. Walked over and watched the OL practice but nothing too noteworthy. Tuesday was a lot more fun from a fan perspective. Chris Randle had a really nice interception early on against the offense. I will say that in camp this year the defense seems extremely vocal, in a good way. Lots of coaching between each other and just a lot of fun too. Leggett can be heard just talking a bunch, at one point yesterday he was literally barking for a few minutes. Heard Randle walking the sidelines too. Shayon Green spent some time on the sideline with Jamal Westerman working on hand technique. Defensive tackles got to practice hand swipes and rips against the anchored tackle dummy. Ekakitie got some ribbing when he was the only one who didn't flip it completely on its side. Needed to get his hand under the armpit more, which the coaches pointed out. As for the QBs, I thought Lefevour looked erratic. Overthrew several balls and one in the turf. Nichols looked pretty good. Davis didn't stand out one way or the other. Apodaca had very limited reps- mostly hand offs and I only saw one short throw from him. And just in general, I really like our coaching staff. I like how they coach in practice and how they interact with the players. Different vibe than say, Doug Berry in the golf cart.

    Ok everyone, sorry it took so long but while we have sun that lawn needed a trim! From my eyes of course: Buckner picked off willy 1st play of scrimmage and ran it back for a score.The defense is gelling together nicely, the boys are fired up. He may not take Randles job but he needs to be used on the field. Practiced with a lot of fire today. Maybe Randle moves to B Johnson's spot, he looked a little shaky on the plays I saw him on. Few plays later Bass had a pick, this time of Nichols. Oline breaking a number of runs through, really nice end around by R Smith, dude is a lot of fun to watch can't wait to see him on labour day! McDuffie looks really good, a number of solid grabs in drills and scrimmage, I must be missing something because I can't see why a team would cut a guy like him. His hands are solid and he makes guys miss on special teams. Harris very vocal when taking repsoff, big time leader... more gushing about him going to be huge for us this season and so on.... No way is medlock punting.... looks like Castillo may be out of a job... Pavlopoulos had a cpl 60+ boots.... a **** tonne of hang time. His first was a squib, I made the irrational decision to write him off and then 3 huge kicks with nice direction... wow. Hurl made a really nice stop on Harris in the backfield, I don't know if it was solid instinct by Hurl or a missed assignment by OL but give credit where its due, he made a nice play. Jesse Briggs.... he better be a demon on special teams this year because it's hard to believe he's going to beat out many of our other LB's or Canadians. Darvin Adams...my man, made some really nice catches, Willy loves the guy, they are always talking giving each other props. He isn't going anywhere. But you can begin to see some standouts in WR corps. Besides the obvious, J Davis will make the team, Mayo had some nice catches, Talley look like they belong. Cone looks like one, Jean still can't catch worth blank, and doubt Bastien makes the club (we just have better options, no slight on the guy), and Richards still looks a little rough, but think he can turn things around once he feels more comfortable after rehab. I can't imagine him being on anything but the PR or IR to start season. Who else....guys like Kearney looked comfortable, moves very stealthy broke some passes. Moe Leggett had a pick, looked like a stud, he hung out a bit with the other NFL guys today, looked like Wilson, Patrick are going to make it tough on the coach. These boys are always working... Loffler was a lot of fun to watch today, he flies around the field. Watched a little of the OL/DL one on ones and didn't see anyone really jump of the page besides Bryant. Macho is terrible... nuff said. Not really organized but thoughts throughout practice.

    I have caught practice nearly every day that I can during a quick bite. I watch for maybe 30 minutes, but I can tell you, that if you're observant enough, there is A LOT that you can catch going on that I'm sure many would at least sit back say, "Interesting." For example, who here knows that since Marve doesn't get very many reps in practice that he spends 20-30 minutes post practice, running roll-outs and tossing balls all over the field with Jhomo Gordon? How about that we have had a half-dozen other guys taking turns kicking field goals? Does anyone here even know now that Kohlert has practiced all week with the 1s? There is a lot you can say in a couple of sentences to give people something other than "nice catch this, and bad drop that."

    The sun came out just before the game… The Bomber first string D……uh, nope… 3 penalties, then B. Johnson beat in the red zone… Thorpe mishandles KO, while Blue take 4th penalty in 4 min. Andrew Harris is still a stud…..his running and catching… ….sets up a field goal……7-3 Moes T. J. Thorpe shows some YAC potential…then limps off the field.. Couple of run stuffs by Nevis, some passes defended by Alexander… James Franklin looking poised and throwing nice balls… …easier to do, when you have 6 steamboats to throw the thing Randle breaks up TD pass in end zone…FG makes it 10-3 Edm. Smally fumbles the ensuing KO…..Moes driving again. Franklin mishandles snap on Bomber 4 yd line….turnover Scoreboard somehow showing Bombers with 0 penalties so far… Do I feel better somehow? 1 turnover on downs, 1 fumbled KR and 6 penalties…in the 1st quarter Harris still running well, behind good blocking… Franklin still throwing well, without any pass rush, whatsoever… He then bombs a long one to some guy named Mitchell…. ….then Rookie L. Perkins busts right up the gut for long TD run. Bombers down 17-3…..first string D looking pretty loose out there…… Bombers get going with big pass to Denmark….
