I think Tillman made a huge mistake by letting Barrett go. I also completely dislike Tillman in general. He just seems like a two-faced guy. The really nice guy who says nothing but good things about someone until they turn their back. I also think he needs a new haircut.
First mistake was letting Shivers go. The man built this team into a contender, like it or not. They make the playoffs consistently, they just have some bad luck in the Western Final. But look at Al Ford, he got to the Grey Cup in 97 after a grey cup win, and some really bad records. The team he inherited won the Grey Cup, not a team he built. Yet, they kept him around for ten years. Shivers made Saskatchewan a contender, Barrett made Saskatchewan a contender.
I am hesitant to say that I won't continue as a Rider fan but I might take a hiatus depending on who coaches the team. If I don't like the staff/product at a record store, I wouldn't go and as much as I love the Riders, I don't support people I don't believe are good people.
Plus I think this new team is going to turn into Ottawa and Winnipeg in 2005 combined. Minus Armstrong because he realizes the ship is sinking. I do like Joseph though, and the defense. So as long as most of that stays I might keep watching.
Best of luck to Danny.
