I agree with everything you said, except “sometimes” … I’d replace it with “always” :?
I used to like the Riders, just because they were so pathetic, always the underdog, always a free win … I guess you could say I felt sorry for them. Now they have a couple of mediocre (which is good in saskabush) years in a row and the rider fans just WON’T SHUT UP. I used to consider the Riders my favourite non-Calgary Western team … now, because of the pure annoyance that is their fans at McMahon, the Riders are my second-most-hated team in the West.
You guys are not gonna win the Grey Cup this year … (not without some sort of fluke or bribery, anyway) … Nealon Greene is not one of the best quarterbacks in the west, let along the league (I’d say Ray, Maas, Dickenson, Printers, and Burris are all better than him) … you guys are not the best thing since sliced bread … the Riders are not in a “class” that’s ahead of the Stamps and eskiblows … the Riders are not going to win the West … the Riders could easily finish as low as 4th in the West.
Oh, and Higgins’ play was not “dirty” or “cheap” … He probably did it in the pre-season BECAUSE it didn’t mean anything! He was just letting Burris, Lewis and Copeland have some fun. They were being interviewed after the game, and said how they’d practiced it a couple of times and decided to try it out. That’s not cocky … geez. Note to all (obnoxious … ie, 95%) Rider fans: The world is not out to get you! (But if you keep being annoying, it may very well change its mind!)
