I read in the Leader Post today that Miller said he is going to talk to Durant about remaining focused on the field and not letting the fans get to him. I don't think his taunting was over the top....what do you think?
Seemed to be alot of laughs going on with this epic at the time. But after seening this photo; I'm a Durrant fan anyway and no harm done I say, thus alot of jibber jabber in fun for the most part. Miller Time :thup:
umm photoshop anyone??
@cflisthebest Couldn't resist, buddy. The media is making it out like he did indeed flip the bird. When I heard him chant "Riderville" I knew right then and there that he had heard the 13th man chant the same thing at the LDC and he thought he'd bring some of that with him to Swaggerville.
That photo is very obviously photoshopped.
Of course it is! I thought it would be funny to satire the way his display of pride is being blown way out of proportion.
It made me laugh ... partly because it was so obviously photoshopped
you have no idea how hard it is to find a black middle finger on Google Images....lol
I laughed pretty hard, thanks Sharkman! But I have to say I laughed even harder at those who thought it was real...DD has two left hands?..hmmmm, lol
Oh man, it would have been fricken hillarious to see the reaction if you'd have put a white hand on there. I wonder how many would have thought that was real as well, lol!
Seriously, I actually wasn’t all that impressed with Durant explaining that stuff the next day.
I don’t mind too much that he jawed back at the fans, although I’d prefer he not, but it sounds like the fans were getting nasty personal, talking about his family. But to say that the Bomber fans disrespected them, well, perhaps those certain ones may be true, but the stuff about the sign being covered with Swaggerville, no the Bomber fans as a whole did not disrespect Saskatchewan, a handful of idiots did. And furthermore to say that “we don’t do that to them”, I’m not sure what he means, the players? How is that relevant. If he means the fans, then it’s not true because EVERY team that visits Taylor Field gets an earful from the stands. Thankfully they don’t throw cans of beer anymore.
I didn't really like seeing him taunt the fans it only gives them more amo in future games. At the same time I know they must have been giving him a really hard time and he's human and gave it right back to them. As long as he doesn't make a habit of it I don't really care.
Durant a eu une dure saison et ces deux victoires contre l'équipe de l'heure dans la ligue ont été une occasion pour lui de faire sortir la pression. À cet endroit dans la partie, il pouvait relancer ceux que pariedog_72 a très justement appelé quelques idiots (et c'est vrai qu'il y en a partout quelques uns, de Montréal à Vancouver) sans nuire à son équipe.
Cette équipe veut sortir d'un début de saison atroce et Durant a senti qu'il devait assumer la défense de son équipe et de la province contre les invectives de ces idiots. C'est une démonstration de leadership qui pourrait contribuer à l'interne à regrouper l'équipe un peu plus, et du pint de vue football, ce n'était pas une mauvaise idée. Les joueurs voudront peut-être encore un peu plus se défoncer pour lui.
Cependant, il ne doit pas en faire une habitude et demeurer concentré sur le travail qu'il a à accomplir pour son équipe, et ce travail, c'est de faire compter des points à son équipe.
S'il ne reproduit pas ce genre d'incident, cela ne lui portera pas ombrage longtemps.
