  1. Do you have a source for this? I'd enjoy reading (or watching) more about this
  2. It's unfortunately that most of what I've heard about increases coming to our CBA will be basically given to the top players. I'd rather bump up the minimum salary a bit. I wonder how often we convince a star player not to try the NFL with a big contract compared to how many players we could attract to the league with a higher minimum contract.
  3. Yeah 250,000. Was the highest paid defensive player until a few days ago. Even though I'm not a fan of spending the big bucks often, I liked this signing at the time. Now that other teams have spent so much on players I doubt will have the same impact, I like it even more.
  4. Has anyone seen the salary numbers for the guys we've signed? Or the guys that we kept either? Only one I've heard was Bighill, but it would be interesting to see what we're spending.
  5. Is streaming CJOB online an option? I do that occasionally.
  6. Agree with most of what you said, but I also question if it was smart to make our big money F.A. a defensive end. We already have Jeffcoat. Roe is serviceable, but admittedly better in rotation. But isn't DE a place we've done fairly well recruiting? Glad to have Jefferson, but wonder if DE is the best place to spend the money. Seems like we could have rolled the dice on recruiting a guy that's an upgrade to Roe and spent elsewhere.
  7. Looking at that chart does explain why we didn't make many huge moves, maybe takes some of the sting away from Redblacks fans too, but I think we came out of day one much better than them.
  8. Bob Irving and Co. are broadcasting one on the Global facebook account. Nice listening to Bob's voice.
  9. Salary cap goes up and that money has to come from somewhere. Perhaps a TV deal or sponsorships, but I think we'd see it in ticket prices in some part.
  10. In an ideal situation we let Lapo speak to the Riders and he sees the mess Jones left and rejects them himself.
  11. That's basically all I'm trying to suggest. That it was more or less a bonus of staying in Winnipeg. Another source of income which was, at least in part, setup by the team to make it more lucrative to stay.
  12. Not suggesting they are spending over the cap. Just that they might be using corporate partnerships to supplement the money going to the player. Basically that Bighill will get whatever amount of dollars, but it is split between the team and the investment firm.
  13. Love the move, but pairing the announcement with announcing Bighill will be working as an investment advisor on the side seems strange. Open flaunting they found a way around the cap? Slap in the face to talk about not being able to find work in Regina in the off season? Agreement with the investment firm that it would be included in the press release?
  14. Wow. 3 Years? Didn't expect that long.
