not arguably...easily

You clearly are under estimating the Rider fans base and it's ability to blow smoke up their own asses. No matter who they get in the offseason they will have the best qb situation going and perhaps can trade their backup or even 3rd stringer for a couple Canadian starters.

true...I do recall at the beginning of the season them raving about their QB situation and the solid depth...tops in the league...as well as the embarrassment of riches in the receiving corp...one which had no 1000 yard guys or anyone with more than 4 td's...

Chris Jones said today they had to terminate 6 football operations staff and everyone else took a 10% pay cut to get under new cap.

Does that include Jones himself or did he just make everyone else take a cut?

Already giving Pipkin , among others, as QB of the future for a test drive. Pipkin. Seriously.

well colour me surprised. ******* like that I was sure would protect himself. 

But remember, 10% of a salary of say 500k is a little easier to absorb than a hit of 10% to someone making 50k.   Now if he had taken a 20% cut so staff at the lower end could avoid a hit, that would indeed be something.

Tweet from Arash Madani:

"Some concerned Riders employees, being told of paycuts and bonuses removed, want to meet with President Craig Reynolds.

It's days like today that leadership is integral in an organization.

So far, staff have been told that Reynolds is "unavailable" to meet with them today."

Oh boy. House of cards is falling.

I had a list, but I cannot locate it. I might have chewed on it in nervousness while watching the semifinal game. I believe it was in the low 20’s. 23 maybe?

Not good no matter what. Our esteemed Commissioner should get off his ass, quit worrying about Halifax for the time being & get a new CBA done before the AAFL ravages all 9 team rosters.
