I guess a return to the broadcast both is out of the question now.

Terrible news, lets hope this just a misunderstanding.

Thats hope this thread does not start another Riders are criminal posts. :lol:

he was more than just a rider :roll:

Of course!
I mean obviously a player who spent the majority of his career with other teams and hasn't played for the Riders in about 20 years proves we are a bunch of criminals in Riderville.

I wonder if this incident will ruin James' ambition to become league commish?

More seriously, I hope the guy survives this, as he seemed like a decent sort.

Its funny how you cannot type the word suck , but you can make an obscene gesture in your signature-- I wonder if the mods dont find the middle finger offensive???

Its too bad about James Curry, but this time lets try to get all the facts before we pass judgement on him.

Just read over at the Zone Warren Moon was arrested for DUI. What is with these former Eskimos and Riders, is there some competition between the two to see who can boast the most felons.

That one is ridiculous. He wasnt even legally drunk. The legal limit for BAC in Washington is 0.08. He was only .067 and .068 respectively.. That arrest makes no sense to me at all...

Maybe with Judge Judy! :lol: :lol: :lol:

isnt being judge judy his day job??

As everyone likes to jump on the bad news when it comes out, it only seems fair to tell the tale of exoneration as well:

[b]Murder charges against Curry dropped[/b]

MADERA, Calif. (AP) - A Madera County judge dismissed a murder charge against a former CFL player accused of killing his girlfriend, citing lack of evidence.

James Curry, 49, of Chowchilla, Calif., pleaded not guilty to charges that he killed Jennifer Flores, 30, and had been held without bail in the county jail since April. Authorities said the former defensive standout with the Toronto Argonauts and Saskatchewan Roughriders wanted to prevent Flores from testifying against him in a child abuse case.

But Madera County Superior Court Judge John DeGroot said Monday the defence had established a ``complete alibi'' for Curry at the time of Flores' death.

A defence lawyer said surveillance video from the Tachi Palace Hotel and Casino in Lemoore, Calif., showed that Curry was there at the time a witness claimed to have heard gunshots coming from the couple's home.

Flores was found dead of a single gunshot wound to the head, police said. Curry said the death was a suicide.

Curry still faces charges that he abused his 15-year-old son. The judge set his bail in that case at US$25,000, which he posted Monday.

Curry was scheduled to appear in court next month to be arraigned on those charges.
