Accordi­­ng To The Als

The Alouettes have made several key moves in this free agency week. MontrealAlouettes.com wanted to ask Vice-President and General Manager Jim Popp to comment his busy week.

Les Alouettes ont effectué plusieurs changements importants lors de la semaine d’ouverture de la période des joueurs autonomes. MontrealAlouettes.com s’est entretenu avec le vice-président et directeur-général Jim Popp sur cette semaine fort chargée.

In the article on the Als' website, Popp is quoted as saying this:

“Reggie is a major acquisition for us. He’s a quality human being who brings veteran leadership. He is a consistent performer who told us he wanted to be with our ball club from day 1. We just needed a couple of days to work out the details.?

That is kind of odd, given what Reggie apparently said in Regina:

The two stories are thus rather contradictory, so it would appear here that someone isn't exactly being honest.

Obviously Reggie Hunt would have prefered finishing his carreer in Regina. I still think he will give his best here in Montreal, who knows he might find that he likes it.

When it comes to Montreal's sports media, I don't trust it at all. They like to make Montreal sound like paradise to athletes.
