Now just imagine if he does well, which I think he will. It will be big time publicity for the league. Espn, Foxsports, & all the big name USA sports entities will be religiously following the CFL. Massive win for the league.

Anyone who says this is bad for the league obviously has an agenda because they know damn well IF Young stil has it, it means all eyes will be on the hated Riders & their new football palace!


With all due respect... you're totally delusional.


No he's not, he's 100% bang on. There's already been an ESPN interview that wouldn't have happened without him signing. The anti-Riders anything attitude on this lame excuse of a message board is pure comedy. The moderators and CFL may want to take note the extremely low traffic on this site is because Rider fans won't come here for obvious reasons. There's what, ten or so of you that rule the roost here, and what is supposed to be a CFL message board suffers as a result.

I concur. It's boring. It's childish.

Of course the 4 or 5 posters who have driven anyone who wants to talk actual football away won't care cuz it allows them to continue with their hatred laced puerile commentary and rule the roost.

Just a reminder why I stayed away for 7 years and will probably do so again. I'm only interested in talking football not engaging in childish name calling and posting nothing but insults and schoolyard playground zone antics.

Look at that ! The fans who take a daily shiat on Burris, Austin,Taman, Nick Lewis, Cornish, Chamblin, Kavis Reed (Mavis) complain about an unfair reaction.

That's good news about Jackson being down south with Young.

Also Jones just said on Sportscage that Young is already down 15lbs & is already at his playing weight.

Sounds positive!

Not that it matters but I also didn't vote yes . I voted for the third option....Neither good/bad..... and for what it's worth I did read the linked article as well . So I see that VY has supposedly apparently already dropped some weight . I heard the number 248 , so is that what he was ? or what he is now ? Serious question , no BS .

I see Rider fans still think they are being picked on. :(
They seem to think this is about them while it is all about VY. :?

OK, I will come clean. Here is the truth.
VY is just an excuse to take shots at R fans.

As a watermelon rights activist, I am disgusted and appalled at the abuse and mistreatment of watermelons.
The senseless slaughter of innocent watermelons must be stopped.
Other fan bases purchase regular team head gear, so there is no reason for this atrocity to continue.

Jones said that Young is now at his original playing weight which is about 230.

Well he sucked playing at that weight, and being 5-8 years younger. But of course, he will now rule the CFL :lol:

He was a mediocre NFL QB. He fooled the Titans into drafting him too high, because of his National Championship victory over the "unbeatable" Reggie Bush led USC Trojans.

That college game should have been the last time he stepped on a football field as a player.

That human interest puff piece means nothing. The guy played 60 NFL games, most of them as a starter. His body of work is large enough to draw some conclusions. He was a mediocre QB. That will not change.

All of the nice stories about him losing weight, focusing on life, yada yada yada mean nothing when he steps on the field and fails.

The magical thinking some Rider fans are doing concerning this guy, is really pathetic.

That's because you are obviously NOT watching the right News channels down there Dawg . You're probably watching all those FAKE NEWS channels that have popped up on TV ever since the Trumpster took office . :)
