From my initial observations it would seem I am the only one that feels that Bishop should be the starter.
I have been a CFL fan since birth! I do not re call in my memory a situation where a QB has been treated so badly.
Pinball and one of the new owners flew to the US to personally beg Bishop to come back to Toronto. He quit his arena gig and came back.
Bishop has developed into the best Argo QB since Flutie IMNSHO. He exceeded expectations in every way. Argos where devestated when Bishop had his wrist injury, if you recall Argos could not muster any wins last year without Bishop.
To bring in a new guy and promote him to #1 without a true competition was terrible!!! Bishop was 11-1 last season and deserved better!
Argos may have lost Friday had it not been for Bishop.
This is right up there with Dunigan being traded away, but really worse! Being traded would have been kinder then what they have done.
Danny Barrett led the Stamps to a Grey Cup loss and they brought in Flutie to replace him, that was on par I guess, mind you it was a straight trade.
I cant recall a 11-1 starter being dumped on like this.
Perhaps Flutie in Buffalo in 1999 is on par.
Thats why I compare Johnson to Joseph.
I am a life long Argo (CFL FIRST) fan, I rooted for Winnipeg when Dunigan was cut and now again I am rooting against the Argos while Joseph is at QB.
This week I will be rooting for OB and the TI CATS while Joseph is at QB, should Bishop come in? I will root for Argos while Bishop is at the helm.
