Here's my little take on the Foley Affair:

Always had great respect for Player Rickey (after some rough edges were removed after his rookie & sophomore seasons) and his brother Area51 Foley - one of the greatest posters in the history of CFL posting. However, he did a bit too much mild-mannered but incisive tormenting of moderators (particularly that glass-eyed squirrel who runs riderfans) and was subsequently banned for life. I know the feeling - when you get banned by make believe fascists and reich upholders its kinda a badge of honour.

Anyways,

1. Rickey was owed a time payment - and it probably wasn't nuisance money - perhaps anywhere from $12,500 to $30k

2. Popp and the new regime saw the bonus on the calendar and combined with trying to write down Rickey's contract (by at least the amount of the bonus) and failing they decided to cut the player and save the bonus cash.

3. Knowing this was swirling around in argo-ville Rickey could easily have played a game of cat 'n mouse with Argo management

4. Even sending a thing to Rickey's agent might not have been enough as the deadline loomed. Rickey could have easily said he let his agent go the week before - and the bonus may have been enforced.

5. So, being unable to find Rickey live - they simply left a text and left him layin'

Don't blame either party - Ricky wanted to be unavailable in order to hammer home the bonus. Popp needed to verify contact to nullify/cancel the bonus. Both were doing their jobs. Wonder what happens if Rickey says he changed his number? Gorsuck time? :cowboy:

6. They straight up told him that he was not going to be an every down starter

7. They DID talk to his agent in advance and let him know when they could not get a hold Foley.

Foley tweeting that he has landed somewhere. The where is really hard to figure out though for an aging, somewhat expensive National DE.
