A trade like that just doesn' t add up.
The Lions have no huge weaknesses other than the FG kicker but you don't trade Casey Printers for a kicker this season. Jeez, you could probably go to the Esks and spring Fleming or straight up McCallum for O'Mahony.
There appears not to be a salary issue with CP this season so money can't be a factor. The other talent is good but why bring that kind of talent mid season and potentially disrupt your team.
The Lions hold all the good cards this year in the Casey Printers situation. He gets paid not too much, he is under contract and they want him this year for sure to improve their chances for a Grey Cup win here at BC Place Stadium.
Like the fellow said, Wally Buono has not been a big trader in the past and I sure don't see it right now.
Even if Casey were calling him out in public and he hasn't, the Lions have the upper hand this year. I can see Wally Buono just ignoring that and reminding the player of the contract HE signed quite willingly and how he should fulfill it if properly if he wants to be maintain his good reputation in the game. Let his agent be the dork. He seems good at that so far.
Pierce-I learned a lot about perseverance. Things arenâ€™t always going to go your way. Iâ€™ve become so much more aware of the realities of the game and lifeâ€¦Things can be taken away from you. You can either sit backâ€¦or overcome it and fight through it....
