Burris tried to convince Giguere to join Ticats.

Notes: Burris ran into Canadian receiver Sam Giguere while the two were training at the Olympic Park in Calgary and said he did his best to convince the Ticat draft pick to join the CFL club after spending most of the last four seasons on NFL practice rosters. “A lot of guys get so close to making it in the NFL sometimes it's hard to push away from the table but I told him that, right now, he needs to play,? Burris said. “We want him here and I definitely made that point to him.?

:thup:

What was Burris thinking?????

Giguere is WAY TOO GOOD to even consider playing in the CFL . . . . :roll:

Obie says, been there done that. :roll: :oops:

Here is his answer

"He sold me his salad"

And this is for your "special" moderator :wink:

“Il m’a vendu sa salade. Henry m’a parlé en bien du système offensif du nouvel entraîneur-chef, George Cortez. Burris m’a dit qu’il comptait distribuer le ballon à tout le monde et que les Tiger-Cats seront une bonne équipe cette année.?

I do not understand a lick of french but I'm imagining that what you just said was pretty funny, so I'm going to laugh anyway hahahahaha :lol:

Obie Wan, just do us a favor and trade up sam's rights for a good Canadian o lineman already. . . :roll:

“Il m’a vendu sa salade. Henry m’a parlé en bien du système offensif du nouvel entraîneur-chef, George Cortez. Burris m’a dit qu’il comptait distribuer le ballon à tout le monde et que les Tiger-Cats seront une bonne équipe cette année.?
For those of us too lazy for Google translate, here is what it spit out.
"He sold me his salad. Henry told me about the offensive system well into the new head coach George Cortez. Burris said he had distributed the ball to everyone and that the Ticats will be a good team this year. "

According to Larousse French-English dictionary, the phrase “vendre sa salade” means to “to sell one’s line” or “to sell oneself”. In other words, Burris was trying to sell Giguere on the team and especially on him being the team’s new quarterback.

You don't win friends with salad.

:thup:

Hail Caesar!

Apparently you do in Quebec. Although I hear bread works much better. Lots and lots of bread.

(Am I showing my age on this one?)

If I'm Giguere after what has been written about him and spoken by him it seems, I'd be scared you know what of failing in the CFL, seriously. :?

Best translation you can make is : "Gave me his sales pitch"

I'm so sick of hearing about this kid. Seeing his name makes me want to bash my head off my desk at this point :wink:

In all honesty, what's samson worried about?? He's destined for the NFLhof anyway! :thup:
