OMG. when you look at what he did here - I do really honestly feel for the Redblacks. I am convinced myself that Rick Campbell built the team and when he left - they pissed away so much talent, same as he did here. The most he did to help was bring in Harris and Ellingson. And then through poor management and coaching convinced them to leave town.....
That's why when the Elks play the words you hear least are 20XX draft pick. The only draft picks we have are this years...
You BUILD success in football. It's funny to think, everyone thought OShea's head was on the block the season before massive success.
It's like that though with people they want it to be instant and it isn't in football. Huf in Calgary, OShea, He who's name shall not be mentioned in connection with the Riders - I mean EVERYONE forgets the year before he got there they had 4 wins. He built continued success for them, so they ran him out of town.
Hugh set us up to be successful for a long long time and every time in the last 22 years we build success we piss it all away. Maas I could never understand. Better every year he's here and replace him with a tennis coach......
Yes everyone is trying to knock guys over instead of tackling the last couple years. The toll on hips knees and ankles and feet has been terrible.
Maybe that needed to be part of the CBA that if you have X number of Canadians that have played X number of games on the 6 game you can modify the ratio.
Put it in the PA's hands to monitor injuries for that.
It's really the complaint everyone had with the ratio, having to use second string guys because of injuries.
The Blue Bombers added two players to the practice roster on Tuesday – American linebacker Brian Cole, who was most recently with the Edmonton Elks and was a seventh-round draft pick of the Minnesota Vikings in 2020 and Winnipeg Rifles receiver Luke McMillan, who had an outstanding training camp before being released last month.
Funny how guys rip on some GM's for the number of guys they move through but this is when having that big book or a skinny book shows up.
Being able to fill the holes when guys get hurt makes the difference.
