I don't see how it can be bad. He garnered off season attention and publicity for the league. If he's successful it will mean even more attention. If he fails it shows the quality and competitiveness of the league.

This is just about a guy that played football his whole life. He had great success early, great failures later. He wants a chance to compete again. What's not to like? This is not about the CFL. It's about a player trying to restart his career. I have no idea if he will be successful but I'm betting he will love playing up here in Canada and love Regina too. I hope he brings his family as well.

Well said. He said when he was in Regina that his family is moving up here with him.

Exactly. :thup:


Whether or not the guy manages to find success on the field, he has already served the purpose of bringing attention to the league. Heck even the thread on this website has hundreds of posts in it.

The league hasn't had a high profile signing like this in a decade.

All positives for the Riders and the league itself no matter what the outcome on the field is

A young colleague of mine, mid- 20's, huge NFL fan, never watches the CFL, ever. Doesn't bad mouth it, it's just sadly not on his radar, typical of millenials. His team just happens to be the Titans, and you know what? Knowing I'm a big CFL fan, he talked to me a couple days ago and said he's really rooting for Vince, and is definitely going to be checking out the CFL this year. So there's that.
Grey Cup wins last decade, okay 11 years

Sask - 2
BC - 2
Cal - 2
Mtl - 2
Tor - 1
Edm -1
Ott - 1
Ham - 0
Wpg - 0

The Rider fans are literally acting like politicians trying to pass some sketchy new bill by pumping it up with fluff.

Truly pathetic.

Careful Canadianfan,

Those are some fragile egos and feelings you are toying with. :D

One of the greatest CFL receivers of all time weighs in.

If you re-read this thread & others regarding Vince Young with logical thought you will realize it isn't the Riders fans with fragile egos.

3 of the 4 Vince Young threads are started by non Rider fans and 82% of the posts in them are from non Rider fans. Your lack of knowledge and perception of reality is what's truly pathetic.

The frequency of anyone's posts are irrelevant. I'm talking about the delusional spin that all Rider fans seem to be putting on this signing - like you. You need to work on language comprehension.
