Or guys who have paid their dues and should get an opportunity to start that they won't get here.

Like Augustine and Roh 

Man, I love Roh.

Sad to see him ride the bench - though he obviously needed to. I hope he gets a starting opportunity next season.

I don't understand the thinking that Collaros would rather go back playing in Ontario playing for a team that's rebuilding and missed the playoffs. Here he's playing for a Grey Cup winning team behind the best O-line in the league. Would be weird imo for a guy who's had tons of injury issues to go play for a team behind a worse o-line.

It's home for him.

It has been great having him here and he has been a total pro.

He should start somewhere though.

If he goes he goes..we will be fine...we got full value from him for the 2 game cheques it cost us. He wasn't the sole reason we won the Cup this year...The defense in my opinion was...he played a safe game..no turnovers...did what was needed...much like we did all year with Nichols and lesser extent Strev...so if we end up with Nichols back..and fully healthy..another year developing Strev, and using him more liberally..no reason we won't be successful

Crocodile tears.

 

Go where you have the best chance at being successful, this is pro sports. Would hate to see him with another season ending injury due to a porous O-line.

Glad Harris didn't do that 

Harris didn't have a history of season ending injuries and head injuries.

Did you miss the part where I mentioned us having the best o-line or just have selective reading?

He was a RB in his late 20s 

Look at our O-line in 2016. Im sure having Hardrick, Bond, and Stanley Bryant helped his decision. Not to mention he was coming to play for Mike O'Shea. I very much doubt (as he's said multiple times) that it was strictly to come play at home, it was a business decision.

Hardrick was not the Hardrick we've come to love, and the overall depth was not even close.

Bond had never played a down here

You can keep coming back with things, but Harris didn't take the most obvious chance at winning in 2016. 

We also did not win in 2016

Right, he had just never played a down in the CFL 

Clearly he was a huge reason Harris signed 

No the fact we already started turning things around helped, and Hardrick and Bryant even in 2016 were considered big FA signings btw.

 

Look I'm not saying going home had no impact on his decision but saying he just wants to go play closer to home is unbelievably naive.

Not the only reason, no. 

Also, getting to the playoffs in the East is a hell of a lot easier than the West.

That means a lot i the CFL where the turn over rate is damn near 70%.

I'm not sure which side you're arguing here?

That the Argos can turn it around in one off season due to massive league turnover?

This is a classic example of where you really need all the facts before you start spouting off your own takes on what is “best for” a player you don’t even know.

Collaros’ wife has a unionized job in Ontario that she wouldn’t be able to acquire easily if she were to move to Manitoba and she also happens to be pregnant.

If those two things aren’t enough reason for him to want to move back to Ontario, his family is close to the area as well. He’ll be going back to Ontario.

If I were Collaros I’d prefer to play on the same team as willie Jefferson vs against  him.   😀

If I were Collaros, I would be more worried about the players that seem fine to injure other players, like Lawrence.
