On a positive note

The thing is though is either Best or LaBatte going to be back? I actually have my doubts and wouldn't be shocked if both are done playing football.

If this is the case then either we need to pick up something very good in the draft or an NFL cut, not likely, or via trade route. The iss ue is what do we have to trade for a NI O linemen or any starting O lineman for that matter? We have all ready dump more picks then I care for so that probably isn't an option and to get a good quality O linemen would probably take someone we can't afford to lose, like a Rosevelt or Holley even Durant.

Montreal seems to be on the verge of a melt down as we speak. Cato lost it today on Stafford and Cartier in practice and he threw a punch at one of them. Cato had to be escorted to the locker room by Kavis. Apparently Cartier and Stafford were trashing Cato or something and he had enough of it. With all this going on the Als are 300k over cap and are in serious trouble of getting nailed for it. Only solution is to have a fire sale and trade players for picks probably as trading players for players probably won't help enough. I guess we could get one that way and it's probably the least costly route other then the draft route.

LaBatte toyed with retirement...his recovery from the concussion has been slow...but last I heard he was leaning towards a return. I wouldn't be stunned if it didn't happen this year or at all though...kudos for him for evaluating what is important and if he is willing to compound that...a concussion is bad enough, but when you bounce back slowly it really makes one evaluate things. It was originally felt to be pretty minor but has lingered...I know he feels he could probably return to practice...but at this point he may hang em up for the season or more.

If Best is not practicing this week then I would suspect next....


both of those are based on a conversation last week.

Welcome to the forum, too bad you picked a bad time as far as the team is doing. Have to say it's pretty tough to find the bright spots in what has been a very dismal season. I guess the good thing is though it can't be said that your just jumping on the bandwagon. ;)

Hope you enjoy your time here. Some pretty heated debates at times but as long as it doesn't get personal most will respect your opinions. Don't be a stranger and again enjoy your time here.

Good game yesterday for the 'Riders They have been playing better lately for sure. The injuries don't help, missing Roosevelt big time but luckily for them they were playing the Eskimos (who I don't are playoff bound this year).

Overall - good win for the 'riders and their fans. Nice to see a sold out (or very close to it) crowd.

Here is another good deed done by a Rider player. Apparently a guy had tickets to the Edmonton game for him and his son in his van but it was broken into and stolen. He posted on kijiji what happend and was looking to replace them. Mrabure read about it and left tickets and sideline passes for them at the will call window. Another good deed done by a player for the fans.
