"I wanna staaaay!!!" Well boo 'bleeping' hoo Reggie Hunt.
You put pen to paper with another club and thats it man! You gonna pull a Flory now and disappear out of Montreal as fast as you appeared? If you were so intent on staying, let me remind you, you had your chance to sign with the Riders for 110k in 2008(the same as 2007 minus a 15k signing bonus which made 2007's salary 125k) at the end of last year. You weren't asked to take a reduction in 2007 against the 800k Tillman had to reduce. You had a cushy full time PR job with Sasktel in the offseason that the Riders got you where you probably earned another 30-40k a year(and it sounds like you plan on retaining that job here in the offseason). And now the club has to face cap overage for not asking guys like you to take a cut and we pay double on that money and risk draft picks in the future.
Now you and Paup have ticked off the vetran LB in Mtl. at your position and the whining your now doing makes you waaay less popular with the people you claim to know and love. The Rider brass realized they were approaching the ceiling of the SMS after signing the guys they considered priorities. Why weren't you a priority with all your years of service and the numbers you put up? The Riders have a lot of depth at your position my friend. All that considered, you were a bonehead not to sign if you stand by your claim of wanting to be here.
I'm not buying it buddy, because if I do it means your an idiot. You want to be here...SIGN, end of story, no brainer. You made your own bed, now sleep in it Reginald Hunt! Your getting a rousing boo from me upon your return for this display of less than mature standards.
