Speaking of it looks like Foley has been released, would not be surprised to see Van Zeyl out as well.

To be fair to Popp, he is coming into an absolute mess of a situation created by Copeland and his dithering. If he'd been hired in December instead of March, a lot of this restructuring would have already happened and allowed players to test free agency.

These players have missed free agency window. It isn't their fault the team took this late to make their decision known. I think Popp is making a mistake, this is an opportunity to restart on a fresh slate (maybe) with the agents, instead he's going to war.

I agree with you. Just pointing out that the existing mess isn't of Popp's making. Any GM coming in is going to release players and restructure contracts. If Copeland had hired him earlier in the season, he could have averted a lot of this.

Trestman has hired an unprecedented number of assistants for the CFL - 12.


Unprecedented? Roughriders have 13 assistant coaches.

I wasn`t counting their 4 quality control coaches - probably in charge of Vince Young`s diet.

Speaking of whom I really don`t understand all the forum bickering over whether Young can be a legitimate CFL QB. It is almost a foregone conclusion that Jones will switch him to DT by 2nd day of mini-camp. :D
I`m not always right, I just think I am.

....Not great timing for these guys to catch on elsewhere...Teams have solidified their rosters and have pretty much designated their dough...Foley could still have something left and could be a good rotational guy...We shall see :roll:

At a reasonable price could be worth looking into.

EDIT:
Ricky Foley?

What happened to Foley's brother Don? He posted as Area-51 last year. He was really good at pissing people off!  :lol: If the Als sign Ricky Foley, will Don become a regular in our forum?!   :o

Yes! And Madjack also. Foley has this on his profile on his Twitter page:

I speak God in public...

What does that even mean? :roll:

Poor Zimmerman... Popp is having him do all the dirty work.

Foley will end up taking a lot less money and backing up Cappspicoly in Hamilton or even less money and backing up Williams in Ottawa. At this point in his career he's a useful spare part in the 75 to 90k range.

The Popp/Zimmerman dynamic in Toronto will be interesting to follow. Asst. GM Zimmerman was highly thought of by Argos ownership, and put in charge of the ship when Barker was fired.

And we all know that in Mtl. Popp was basically a one man show - with a little help from people like Abrams who he personally hired. Now he has to work in a shotgun arranged marriage with an assistant who is highly regarded by ownership. Something to keep an eye on.

Just a matter of time before Zimmerman is pushed out and Joey Abrams brought in.

Its just an opinion but I think Don Foley hurt his brother's opportunities. To what extend hard to say but you pretty much get a 2 for 1 when you sign Ricky...

Hey I see where they just stole a player from us - former Notre Dame RB Cam McDaniel who was on our practice roster last season. He signed with the Argos today. He looked good in training camp/pre-season but not really a great loss.

As an aside, I believe he came from a wealthy background as he is the only practice roster roster player I know who was living in Westmount.
