TAMAN TAMAN TAMAN!
And if Miller is truly making co-decisions with Taman on personnel issues then he has to go too.
This is not hanging 1 or 2 bad games on the GM. This is 4-9 and dead f'n last without a hope because the roster is easily the weakest defense in the league and has been the entire year, and management is clueless as to why.
Taman was handed the keys to an era of winning and in 18 months, destroyed, DESTROYED it all.
I used to think that Taman in Winnipeg was okay, but not great, and I cut him a lot of slack because I really believed that Bauer meddled in his business. Now Bauer is in Calgary and they're fine. Taman is in Regina and the Riders stink.
I was embarrassed BADLY this afternoon. That was disgusting. Cornish laughed at us. LITERALLY. 2nd quarter, he tries to turn the corner and Freeman caught him by the ankles. Cornish got up and laughed LAUGHED because he knew it would have been 20-30 easy yards if he had gotten away. HE LAUGHED. That was f'n embarrassing.
I want a watermelon that covers my whole face.
I was embarrassed but now I'm just heartbroken. We've had such a great team for a few years now. I can take a bad year or two, I can take some losses - bad ones. I've been a Rider fan for 32 years, I've taken my share. But what pisses me off is that there is no hope. When Shivers took over, they were 5-12, 6-12. They were bad but even when Burris left for the NFL there was hope. Tillman inherited a good thing and honed it into something better. Now for the first time in a bloody long time there is no hope.
It breaks my heart that this team had a date with destiny, to meet the Als for the 3rd year in a row in the GC, in my home town, and when my good friend from Montreal comes out for the party, not only will the Riders not be playing, they don't even belong on the same field as 6 other teams in the league.
I'm a dedicated fan. I watch EVERY down. Now I have 5 games left with FUCK ALL to look forward to. 5 games of pure torture.
Thank you very much Mr Taman. :x
