DeAngelis

Les Timinous ont acquis Justin Medlock et quelques autres considérations pour un choix au repêchage.

De cette transaction, on peut considérer que DeAngelis serait disponible. Serait-il un candidat intéressant pour les Alouettes? Il n'a eu qu'une mauvaise saison, et c'était la saison dernière où il a eu de la difficulté à s'adapter aux vents capricieux de Hamilton. Peut-être pourrait-il relancer sa carrière à Montréal?

DeAngelis a la grande qualité d'être canadien et d'avoir un excellent taux de réussites/tentatives en carrière. Par contre, il a quelques ombres sur son tableau : il ne fait pas les dégagements, il n'est pas un très bon plaqueur et il a parfois eu des frictions avec ses coéquipiers à Calgary. Autre problème: il a eu un gros contrat avec Hamilton, qui aurait été réduit cette année. Ce contrat serait-il un obstacle?

En tout cas, ce serait un candidat plus intéressant que McAllum.

I'd be interested, depending on the cost.

Pas beaucoup plus avancé, étant donné que nous aurions besoin d'un botteur.

McCallum peut "faire" les deux; oui, il a 41 ans, mais ce serait le meilleur candidat,si disponible; durant les 5 dernières années son taux de réussite,des placements a été de: 84,1% en 2006,81,4% en 2007,83,0% en 2008,88,2% en 2009 et de 88,5% en 2010. Pouvez-vous me trouver un botteur avec de meilleures statistiques, durant cette période? J'en doute.

Le temps nous dira qui sera le candidat choisi.

DeAngelis was hot and cold last season, much like Duval. Does he have any gas left in the tank?

I dont like the idea of two roster spots for kicking and punting but its kind of funny to see Obilovich try to corner the market on kickers LOL !

This from an other forum... can check accuracy but 130k for place kicking and another 70 for punting so 200k on your kicking game and two roste spots is way too dear IMO.

O'Bie takes on the Medlock salary but he can do all kicking duties even though he's an import. The only missing piece yet to happen is if O'Bie trades DeAngelis even though he negotiated his salary down from[b] $180K to a more reasonable $130K.[/b]

I would have liked to see the Als make a play for Medlock, although his punting still needs some work.

I read at the beginning of the year ( unable to find the story now) that McCallum has a real estate business in B.C. and would only accept a trade to certain teams. Would the Als make that list?

I see Edmonton positioning themselves to take O`Neill in the 2nd round of the draft, with the Als taking Milo with their 2nd.

The wild card is Nick Setta (who doesnt come cheap), if the team sees that Milo and David cant cut it.

Also interesting to see that Duval has not surfaced elsewhere in the CFL.

Why wouldn't he come cheap? He's out of work as far as CFL football is concerned, and has been for over a year.

Kirk Penton of the Winnipeg Sun posted this on his blog Aug. 14, 2010:

Here’s the latest in the wake of Winnipeg’s ugly 39-28 loss to Hamilton on Friday night that dropped them into the East Division basement with a 2-5 record …

• The Bombers will be bringing in two kickers to compete for the kicking job, since it appears Louie Sakoda won’t be able to play on Thursday in Montreal due to a calf pull suffered just before Friday’s game that prevented him from playing.

• It turns out placekicker Sakoda first got hurt on Thursday but didn’t tell the team. He was still able to kick 50-yard field goals during the warmup on Friday, but it gave out for good about 45 minutes before kickoff.

• Former Bomber PR man Arash Madani, now working for Sportsnet, reports that Warren Kean is one kicker the Bombers have contacted. Kean is Canadian, and he had an excellent training camp with Calgary this year. Coincidentally, he was with the Bombers for two months in 2008 to challenge Alexis Serna, but he never kicked a single ball in anger during his time with the Blue and Gold.

The Bombers have also been interested in former Ticats kicker Nick Setta, who wants a pretty penny to return to the CFL, and Chris Gould, an import who played at the University of Virginia and in the Arena Football League.

• Wonder what Alexis Serna is doing these days?

I believe Serna has a fitness business, but as you say MadJack he might be a little hungrier now.

I of course meant Setta in my last sentence.

C'est certain que si DeAngelis coûte 130K et qu'il faille un botteur en plus, le jeu n'en vaut pas la chandelle. À ce prix-là, autant courir après McAllum come le suggère Richard, le temps de faire mûrir un nouveau. Mais je doute que McAllum soit intéressé à jouer à l'autre bout de la ligne aérienne de toute façon, et d'autres solutions moins onéreuses pourraient se pointer.

Par contre, je serais surpris de voir Edmonton acquérir O'Neill. Pas en première ronde, en tout cas. Les Eskimos sont satisfaits de Schiavone et c'est pourquoi ils ont disposé de Medlock. Les chances qu'ils courent après un autre botteur à ce moment-ci sont somme toutes plus minces. Ils ont surtout besoin d'une ligne offensive, de receveurs de passes et d'une tertaire efficace.

Les Lions ont perdu leur RB Harris. Si vous connaissez une équipe qui pourrait avoir un surplus de RB et qui aurait besoin d'un botteur, faites-le savoir à Wally...

Bon. Apparemment, on a DeAngelis ET Whyte, possiblement McKnight, sans avoir eu à perdre Watkins.

En fin de compte, c'est pas mal, non?

Personnellement, j'ai un faible pour Whyte qui est plus jeune et qui peut faire tout le travail. Il ne faut pas oublier qu'il n'y a pas que le botteur de remplacé : le teneur aussi, maintenant que Cahoon est parti. Il faudra être indulgent avec le pauvre bougre qui devra remplacer Cahoon à ce poste. Il va devoir apprendre son métier rapidement.

Desriveaux l'a fait avec plus ou moins de succès l'an dernier. Est-ce que ce sera sur lui que Trestman comptera?

It is kind of ironic to see that DeAngelis and Duval have the same agent - Fred Weinrauch - Centre 68. I believe there was a Bryan Chiu connection.

They even held kicking camps together last year, and the website lists tentative plans for this year, but no specific dates.

Whyte can do all 3 jobs but none of them exceptionaly well. his field goal range is around 42 yards. DeAngelis so far has not shown he can punt but can place kick in to 52,54 yards when he,s on. So splitting the duties so they can focuson less aspects might work out great and if one gets hurt you have a backup. Whyte probably makes 75k and Sandro about the same so we arepaying these two guys about what Duval was making. Workouts great.

Considering the season both of them had
I wouldn't be surprised if their camps looked a little like this:

I remember Duval between the 2009 and 2010 season saying how much money he was making with his little clinics... Maybe he should have spent more time practicing and training instead of teaching :?

Speaking of Duval...

[url=http://www.montrealgazette.com/sports/Alouette+Damon+Duval+enjoying+life+without+football/4864286/story.html]http://www.montrealgazette.com/sports/A ... story.html[/url]

I guess they will Fedex his his GC ring... or maybe his father in law can pick it up for him :?

Typical Duval. Blame others (an 'unidentified' coach) instead of just accepting that he was terrible in 2010, and admitting that he has a problem performing in championship games. If it were just coaching, why was he so poor in the 2009 Grey Cup, when Squires was still around? Right, I forgot, he missed that fourth-quarter FG attempt because he got distracted by the referee throwing the flag. :roll: :roll:

Duval was a good player here for a number of years, but I can definitely live without the excuses and the revisionist history.

Duval's was mentaly soft in college, he blew a 30 some yarder in his senior bowl game, sounds familiar ??? The funnyest post ever on this forum was when a teammate came on here and posted he got Smith's little princess Ashley prego LOL ! then she came on here denying.... one of her brother showed up , then Mr. Duval Sr. came on here. It was like a comic strip. There was always something... she claimed to be have beer thrown at her at the GC, yet an older lady sitting behind her said she saw no such thing. All the blaming, the yaking to Herb. It was long overdue.
