  1. To be honest...I never minded Duron..was a bit weird/off at times and seemed a bit childish but he never really got to be nausiating until he got caught up in that Rider culture and followed the lead of the douchers there..wasn't nearly as much of a doucher in BC...
  2. People are just way too consumed now with causes and protests...and will look for anything it seems to cause a ruffling of feathers...when I played sports with Indigenous teamates...and it was often even they claimed/stated that things are getting ridiculous..straight out of the mouth of one of my longest termed friends (a Native Canadian) he said the notion of calling him..or any other of his people an Indian as opposed to a First Nation Person..Or Anishinabe or it would be offensive was plain dumb..he said "I am a effin Indian" whats the issue?? and its not any more derogatory than calling an Italian..an Italian...Or a Chinese person...Chinese...or for that matter a white person...a White person When I played in California was called everything from Cracker..****** Tonk..White Boi..Cornfed...and some i wont say here although funny...not appropriate and was never offended and generally it was said to me by friends and associates, and fans...It's how you use a word which can make it offensive or racist within it's context moreso than the word itself The worst treatment I was given and insulted by was oddly enough from a White Police Officer in Oakland when I was out with teamates...majority of which were not white...They got more offended by it than me and felt like they had to protect their poor lil Cnadian Corn fed ****** lol
  3. that crew with Edam and Francis too were trying to start **** in warm ups at midfield prior to the West Final...as well as the west semi the year previous...and we just ignored it andf took care of business...difference between a team of pros and a bunch of individual putz's
  4. being part Italian....If I was on a team called the Pawtuket Whine Swilling Wops it wouldn't bother me a bit...Would wear it as a badge of honour hahahaha
  5. Is it really a racist name though? Not trying to be a knob but rather a legit question..Would it be wrong to call them the Edmonton Inuit as well?...It's a proper name for a group of people...Are the Irish soon to follow and ask Notre Dame to drop the fighting Irish moniker?..how bout any offended BoilerMakers...And lets stop offending the Ragin Cajuns...I hear they don't like that either...like where does it stop??...people are wayyyy too ultra sensitive now and just looking for a cause..or a fight I can see the point with the Redskins name, as that was an offensive term...But Braves?.Chiefs?...cmon...thats like a rank in an Army in a sense...heck I played on a travelling Baseball team back in the day..An Indigenous based team for that matter and they used the team name Braves for their ball team, and Chiefs for their hockey team and it wasn't an issue...still isn't You could go on and on and on with amateur..college and pro teams who have a nickname or support a phrase or a cheer that the snowflakes in this world will deem offensive...let it go man
  6. Ferri and Philion were just plain dirty pieces of ****...hated them and how they preyed on players in compromising positions to try and cause an injury...Philion especially Current guys I can't stand are Ed Gainey (his banjo bowl episode cemented it) and his 2 running mates Edam and Marshall...all 3 need a lesson in how to be a true pro and it wouldn't be so bad if they had the top tier skills to back up their constant yapping..Edam never had it and Gainey is running his mouth based on a lucky stretch of games 2 years ago where he got all his career picks basically in a 5 game stretch...look at his career numbers..the one year was an anomally Also in the mix is Simoni..dirty and disrespectful player and constant yapper....clips of him on CFL Wired really show what an assbag he is
  7. yEAH....I think mentality and reality set in and it's become apparent in the sports world now that excessive spending doesn't work now...Many leagues are realizing this...The positive post Covid world tho for the CFL is going to be the reality that it's NFL...or CFL and that will be it..highly doubt any upstart league will come around for a while now..id ever and even so...won't be able to out price established vets, and young up and comers in the CFL The top end guys will still get the nice deals, (not crazy money like the last QB free agent frenzy) but established guys will be in the 400 to 600k range and thats sustainbable, and top tier defensive guys and offensive stars are going to all be sandwiched in the 150 to 250k range and thats also very manageable for teams to have some guys in that salary range (albeit not pulling a BC and hamstringing yourself) Once all the dust has settled I think this will have been a good thing for the league..an eye opener for teams...and players...and a better sustainable business model will be in place. The league average As well as minimum wage will be higher, making it more attractive to new players to come up...allowing for league to discover/develop new stars, and you will have a lot of hungry player putting in the work with the knowledge that if they show they belong they could supplant higher priced aging players...which in the end is good for the league...the teams..and recruitment
  8. pretty sure the Lions are or were working on restructuring Chungh's and Reilly's deals earlier into the new year,,not sure if it was finalized and/or formally announced but from what I understand both will be taking less of the pie this year with the Lions..well that is if we play any games...I guess last year they learned a nice big fat lesson that when you dump a third of your sms into 4 guys...well you suck
  9. Taylor is ruined now doing pbp for the Riders hahaha...too bad I'f I was to make the decision I would make my A team be Walby and Dunnigan...bar noine,,,neither a true PBP guy but who cares, they can handle letting the fans know whats going on...and be very entertaining To be honest..I don't need a guy telling me "Qb takes the snap....looks through his reads, oh oh...pressure...sack" I'd rather have 2 football guys say whats going on..and pretty much explain the whys and hows as it unfolds...
  10. calling him an upandcomer...at 28 hardly an upandcomer I would think that Harris..Evans, and Even Adams in Mtl would be ahead of Fajardo...
  11. define big? Riders also hosted a playoff game...and didnt have to pay for 3 playoff road game expenses and all the other $$ winning the cup costs...from what I hear was roughly a million smackers..
  12. If the Rider's are this huge juggernaut fiscal money making best in the CFL team...how is it they loose money on the season, yet the "inferior" Bombers in their eyes make money...Riders enfded up over 200k in the red, albeit they would have made about 300k if not for the 500k they put toward the 2020 Grey Cup...If the Bombers didn't have to fork out an additional 800k+ for playoff expenses being on the road...grey cup expenses..rings etc, they would have pocketed even more than they did this season...while still making their loan obligations...This all with the Green Turds hosting a playoff contest....Me thinks their(that fanbase) needs to re-think their worth and realize they are not the be all..end all.
  13. yup...took that title onc ethat sad sack old Mosaic was torn down...dump of all dumps....situated basically in a dump
  14. Through in some SCTV as well...some good stuff came outta there too
  15. From pre-season and practices, and minimal game action last year he is the best pocket passer we had....and have had in a while, and he also can get out of troubles way and run a bit as well...not Strevleresque but more than adequate From what I observed he had the best pocket presence and looked most comfortable and confident standing in there going through his reads, and with this o-line that could be a lethal combo as he has no jitters and yips and will allow things to fully develop...will be interesting to see how and if he develops...and by all acounts has the smarts upstairs too. As I commented before, he has the best arm and ability to make any throw that I have seen come through camp here in a long time
