Well Reed cut Jonathan Crompton today. So, he is slowly catching up to us! :D

I`m guessing he didn`t fit in the team`s plans and they released him at some point.


McDaniel ne m'a pas convaincu. Je pense que les Alouettes vont donner une chance à Moore et Jackson, sans compter les autres qui pourraient venir.

Curieusement, lorsque j'ai félicité Kavis Reed pour Olafyoye, j'ai mentionné que la prochaine position à améliorer serait les porteurs de ballon. Peut-être que quelque chose s'en vient de ce côté. :lol:

And good old Coach Trestman still in his bubble (or pretending to be):

Since being hired nearly two months ago, the Argonauts head coach has been in his own little Double Blue bubble, which can only be considered a good thing.

You’ll have to excuse Trestman if he doesn’t have time for what’s going on elsewhere. He has a last place, 5-13 team of his own to rebuild, one that has nothing to do with VY, Regina or the mini-camp going on at Historic Dodgertown in Vero Beach.

Trestman had no idea the radar was even on, let alone the fact they’re flying under it while competing for attention down here with the Saskatchewan Roughriders’ yearly pilgrimage south.

“I don’t know anything about it,” Trestman said prior to taking the field at IMG Academy in Bradenton, Fla., on Wednesday, the second of three mini-camp practice days for the Argos. “I don’t pay attention to what’s going on.”

Vince Young? University of Texas? No. 3 overall NFL pick in 2006? The biggest story of the winter, perhaps equalled only by your hiring? That guy.

“I’ve seen Vince Young play for about five minutes one time in the fourth quarter of a bowl game,” said Trestman, who was the offensive co-ordinator at North Carolina State the year of Young’s 2006 Rose Bowl performance and about 23 months before he’d be handed the Montreal Alouettes’ coaching reins in December of 2007. “Other than that, I’ve never even seen him play.”

How’d Young do in that game?

“I don’t remember, it was so long ago,” Trestman deadpanned. “I think he won the game.”

He's smarter than all of these reporters put together. ALL of them.

I pity the fool who's going to attempt to drag Trestman down a path, through a funnel into a quagmire.

Trestman is certainly not a stupid guy, but what would kill him to say "Yeah I certainly heard Young is making a comeback with the Roughriders. I wish him well, except maybe when they play us."

He likes to send the message that he is so focused on his job, he has no idea what is going on beyond his locker room. Perhaps to discourage the media from asking him too many questions. Well with the situation in Toronto, if anything you need the Head Coach talking up the CFL.

Ridiculous comments by Trestman.

Either he is stupid or lying.

Why play that silly game in a town than needs some dialogue between press and team.

Just causes more cynical eye rolling. Just Spicer like.

I think you are missing the point. Why would a Toronto reporter spend time asking his first questions of the year about a Prairie team instead of covering topics centering around the Argos ???? How does it help the Argos exposure for Trestman to talk about a team he has nothing to do with ?

Think about it, this is Scott Mitchell from the Toronto Sun... The last article he wrote about the Argos before this. Was this

Draw your own conclusions :wink:

I don't see any correlation.
One hopes that Trestman and Popp don't follow their own press hating habits into a new market place. It does them no good.

Popp never hated the press - on the contrary - he once even invited a Journal de Montreal reporter to his North Carolina home. He will eventually be the face of the Argos.

Trestman on the other hand is very guarded, although always very polite. You can`t expect him to be Leo Cahill, but part of his mandate should be to help market the Argos and the CFL.

You`re asked a question about Vince Young, whether innocent or not, you give an intelligent response, instead of pretending you live in a cave.

Yeah I guess with Popp it was just more the key writer for the Gazette,
It just seems like his regime was always at odds with the media going back years.

Jeff Perrett retires - kind of a surprise. Why sign a contract a week ago and then retire so soon? Hopefully nothing to do with his past issues.

Dobson Collins released - not a surprise.

Ça ressemble à Dominic Picard l'an dernier. Une fois sur le terrain, le goût n'y était peut-être plus.

Popp et Trestman disent les bonnes choses pour mousser leur équipe. Dommage que ça ne semble pas avoir d'écho à Toronto.

Je persiste à penser que Ray va encore manquer un bon bout de la saison (je ne le souhaite pas, mais son historique récent tend vers ça), et c'est là qu'on va voir la vraie valeur de Trestman comme gourou de quarts-arrières.

Bruno Heppell a dit à quelqu'un qui y a fait un commentaire qu'il fallait se méfier des Argonauts, qu'ils seront meilleurs que ce qu'on peut en penser. Ce que je remarque de Bruno, c'est qu'il a tendance à conclure rapidement. On n'a pas vu jouer une seule partie cette saison, aussi, il est difficile de prédire qui va ressortir et qui va régresser. On voit comment les équipes ont été bâties, mais ça ne suffit pas pour prédire la saison. Qui l'an dernier aurait dit au mois de mai que l'équipe terminant avec une fiche de 8-9-1 gagnerait la Coupe Grey sur une équipe qui a terminé avec une fiche de 15-2-1? Va falloir se la rappeler, celle-là!
