Yeah I can believe that locker room is like that..u coukd see it in the play...and personal show boating.

Maybe part of reason Jefferson wanted out...my opinion its guys like Gainey..Edam..and now Purifoy who would be big cause of it

Jovon Johnson has left a broad hint that all was not sweetness in the Rider locker room in a note on his blog:

"My teammates! We went to war everyday! We built a bond although very dysfunctional it was incredible to put together the on field performance for the fans, but behind the scenes there is work to do. I hope you all find it in your heart to put the differences aside and put it all together next season!"

That whole organization under Jones & Murphy was dysfunctional. I think Craig Dickenson will bring some stability & reason to the locker room.  He's a pretty low key guy who isn't self centred like Jones was.

I think it was a simple as the defense was pissed off and  shitting on the offense for continuously crapping the bed and having to carry the offense.

I know my mother agrees with this (and so do I). I think Jones brought a sense that he could do anything but really failed to deliver. He sold a bill of goods to Rider fans, who still defend him and his moves, but ultimately, it was a house of cards - completely unstable. He's a good DC. Maybe, he's an 'okay' HC but he ain't no GM and certainly not all three. 

Question is, can Dickenson actually deliver or is he just the rebound HC? How long can last? I think he'll be a better HC than O'Day is a GM but Dickenson falls first.

Prider reaction..

1.It's garbage. Media trouble making.

2. pfft name one locker room where everything's peachy .What an overreaction. 

3. Rantings of a malcontent.

No worries they all work

Well, let's see how things are now that Jones & Murphy are gone. I think the locker room will be a  lot different with Craig Dickenson & Jeremy O'Day in charge. 

They'll convince everyone that the offense really is pulling its weight...

Gawd help you...they'll know exactly whats wrong with you. ..again,  because they're an intelligent fanbase.

A note for Bomber attendance,  I am in the process of purchasing a home that is 8 hours closer to the peg.  So I will be able to attend more games this season,  as well as encourage more of my family to attend with me...... it may not pay for a top tier recievers salary....but it's a start !  I can't wait ! 

 

GO BOMBERS !
