It must have happened when he got facemasked and yanked down by Dean (I think it was) on that one play.  I wondered what had caused him to suddenly go whiffing.  Montreal should have picked up Bryan Bennett before SSK did.

The Riders said they would support it, why would we push it when we have unlimited amount of money to spend.  Riders have paid the most for coaches for years. We have had out financial struggles in the past, I'm sure we realized it was probably a necessary thing 

Actually... the Bombers have more cash on-hand than the 'Riders do, just sayin'.

how can the Riders have $34 million of deferred revenue?  Winnipeg has like $5 million.  Shouldn't all clubs be basically the same in this area?  I don't get it.

Well, seeing as how their fiscal year-end is March 2018, it'd likely be payments made by 2018 season tickets holders for services not provided yet. Winnipeg's would be lower because less people paid for the upcoming 2019 season that early (Winnipeg's fiscal year-end is December 2018 instead).

Actually, a lot of the Riders deferred revenue comes from blackmail payments.  You have no idea how much money can be generated when you call a player and say "Give us money or we will trade for you and you'll have to spend the next 2 years waking up in Regina."  Even Liam Neeson wouldn't touch that threat.

THE NEW B.C. WAY?

It started with ex-Eskimos general manager Ed Hervey outright refusing to shake hands with Kenny Stafford, post-game, during the pre-season. After Friday’s game, it was former Eskimos coverage linebacker Chris Edwards physically batting away the extended hand of quarterback Trevor Harris. Walking off the field shoulder to shoulder, TSN cameras showed Edwards appearing not to notice Harris’s gesture of sportsmanship. But there was no ignoring it when Harris made an effort to move slightly ahead of him, which caused an over-animated reaction from Edwards, who did his best impression of a defensive lineman’s rip move followed by some heated words until Eskimos defensive back Money Hunter stepped in to try and calm down his former teammate. It leaves us wondering if this is the new Lions Way of doing things?

Doing one of these before week 3 or 4 is a dive off the deep end - but here goes:

 

Montreal at Hamilton
Life in the East is good - if you are a Ticat fan.  Fresh off the heels of beating down a hapless Argo squad, they get another "challenge" in Montreal.  Als gave up 600 yds in their opener, and have question marks, elsewhere.   Take the Cats at home by 14

BC at Calgary.
Calgary DL and secondary were not up to the usually standard against Ottawa, and Bo Bovine did not have the best of days.  Rielly has struggled behind a suspect OL, and a offensive playbook shrunk to the size of a pin.  Lions secondary has looked cheesy, as well.  One of these teams is going to uptick their game.   Betting on it being the Stamps.   Take Calgary by 10+

Toronto at Sask
Argos didn't win a single road game last year, and are coming off a totally inept performance, in their opener.   Franklin Expedition still sitting at the dock, but not much happening around him.  Last week, Sask had almost shocking production O, but done in by bad D and brutal special teams.   Toronto may be the only game that this Rider O can keep this kind of O, going.  If Riders somehow go to 3-0, losing against TO at home....look for a total manure storm to hit the Rider fanbase.   Can't see it though - Riders by 10.

Edmonton at Winnipeg
Probably, the week's top matchup.   Bombers bring their overall team continuity, balance and efficient O - Esks bring strong 2-way play as well, so far.   Both these teams are pretty physical and will pound on each other.  Expect home cooking and discipline to give the Blue the edge in this one....by 7.

I think you mean if Sask goes to 0-3... but I agree on all 4.
