Speaking of Dickenson, he doesn't pull any punches. Telling 3DN that the Bombers are a better team by A LOT, and that he doesn't think his team could have beat us is about as honest AND dumb as a coach could be. Way to rally the troops CD....tell your guys they are not capable....smart. I have never seen a coach do this before. Football players have to have confidence to succeed. When you are going up against a team that is better than you, you can't let your players know that.
If there was ever a crown corporation that needs a revamp and should be defunded it is the CBC. I am not in favor of crown's privatizing but I would be in the case of the CBC. That place is just a feedbag of patronage appointments with no accountability to the taxpayer whatsoever.
I think this election was wholly unecessary and I am thankful that it appears whoever wins will have a slim minority and will likely not call an election for the next 4 years. In all likelihood, we will be back at this within the next 2 years but the government will have to walk into that election on a vote of non confidence if it is to do so.
I think people might be mis-interpreting what's being done. Suitor, as someone who has to talk about this stuff on the air, just wants clarification from the league as to why the decision was made (or not made) so he can talk about it on TV. This isn't about "I'm trying to get Harris suspended"....it's just an info grab so he can talk about it on the air. I don't have a problem with that.
I'm ripping on his shitass leadership and ongoing politicization of a global health crisis, to be clear. If you think I'm sharing a news article to poke fun at Albertans suffering because of his clown antics, you're sorely mistaken.
Part of the issues with Dickenson's team...and this falls on Oday's lap is the guy's they have brought in and the culture they have created there...the wrong kind of culture
I recall here in years 1 through 3...part of 4 the impatience heard around these parts for what Walters and Oshea were creating...and that the results were not instant enough. Sure there were some (at the time) high end free agents we passed on and the fans here said they were nuts, and didn't know what they were doing...wanted them fired...et..etc...but now that the foundation and culture was established, the right kind of players brought in to police it internally....it's become the defacto place to be, and sustainable now for the long term...and we are now the organization that teams are trying to replicate...thats facts....
I was a bit leery at first with Willie....phenomenal talent but hoped he wasn't bringing that piss poor Sask me first/selfish brand of football stench here....and he hasn't.....was totally painted with wrong brush as a Rider and is one of the vets here that allows us to self police and continue what we got going on here...true pro and team first player...plus he's awesome on top of it.
I've been on teams were certain groups hated each other...some where guys even though were teammates...didn't even really know one another or cared to for that matter..and were just there for the cheque....polar oppositer thing here and it reflects on the field
Looking back...it all started with one signing...years back that was the first brick...and that brick was rewarded with his second ring....Mr Bryant...probably the most respected guy in the room, and rightfully so. Even tho he had a ring from before, him being here basically from the restart, and staying loyal was this teams foundation, and you know that ring from 2019 was so much more cherished by him
