Lonie Glieberman can't win.
He gets ripped in the media for signing players.
He gets ripped for not signing players.
I can't understand why people make an issue of the Renegades signing players to four- or five-year contracts. Unless the deal is guaranteed (as defensive star Kyries Hebert's is for the first two years), the team is not beholden to a player.
A team can release a healthy player at any time.
There is only up-side for the team in getting players to sign long-term deals. If they perform and are worth their salary, the team can keep 'em.
If not, they get a big cup of see ya later.
The issue in the CFL is not the Renegades giving one of their best defensive players a contract that is guaranteed for two years.
The issue is a team like Edmonton possibly having the highest payroll in CFL history and the league's inability to do anything about it.
The offensive co-ordinator's job in Hamilton is apparently there for Joe Paopao if he wants it. Talk is the Ticats might also see an additional bonus to having Paopao: Attracting Renegades free agents George Hudson and Josh Ranek ...The Rolling Stones are going to play at halftime of the Super Bowl. Remember when they were the devil incarnate to Middle America? Now, compared to Janet Jackson's breast, they're the safe choice.
