Cauz: Chris Jones' influence already being felt in Toronto

As a fan of good content, my Toronto Argonauts and the CFL as a whole, I could not be more thrilled to see Chris Jones back on the sideline as a defensive consultant with the Double Blue.

Chris Jones has paid his dues as a long standing coach in the CFL. You really have to ask his former players how valuable his advice was ? The fact is the players are responsible for executing a game plan, therefore that can make any coach look bad or good-Just ask Bill Belichick ?

What's with Cauz's fascination with Chris Jones. A few years ago He left Calgary for Toronto with out telling Huff creating a vacancy for the stamps right as training camp was beginning. He showed disrespect to Canada & the CFL by bringing his Edmonton Squad out late after the National Anthem only stopping when CFL fined him. He refused to show good sportsman like attitude by refusing to shake opponent Coaches hands after the games (except Toronto) . Then he left Edmonton immediately after the Grey Cup for Sask. Obviously Negotiating the job while the GC was being played. In Sask he received numerous fines Amounting to thousands of Dollars and hurting the Riders rep for Cheating and other offenses against the CFL. Then after negotiating another contract with Riders. left for USA with little notice leaving Sask without a VP, GM, HC and DC. Just before the Season was starting. He even lived in a hotel for his whole stint in Regina, not contributing to the community, so all he had to do was pack his bags and jump on a plane. Worse thing is Jones did not even get the Riders close to the GC Championship. He is the most Disgusting Individual ever to be involved with the CFL. His So called Rep as a good DC is over rated. And Toronto will be sorry they hired him because he won't give then any time or advance notice before he jumps ship again. Leaving the Argos with a unscheduled vacancy ! Just watch !

Funny how tsn had nothing good to say about this little opportunist when he was with Saskatchewan. Now he's back in Toronto and they're back to kissing his ass at every opportunity just like they did before he left. The only reason he's back here is because he shot himself in the wallet by leaving the best football job he's ever going to have and jumping out of his contract to go to Cleveland. The only place he could get a job was at his old high school and he repaid that by bailing out on them too. Give me a break with this guy.

Just watch !If anybody else is still stupid enough to hire him, the Argos are the only ones that would and that's only because his buddy John Murphy is there.

I think the CFL can get along just fine without Mr. Jones. He did the riders no favours, similar story wherever he has coached. He is like the magician's rabbit that keeps getting pulled out of the hat and re-appearing.
