Heard on the radio the Printers is claiming that if and when he comes back he was promised to be the number one QB. This after he was critical about how he was treated by Bouno. This has been heard by Dave Dickeson and now he has poopee pants as well! I think Printers just showed many NFL teams what his potential is nothing more then a trouble maker. He has no chance of making a NFL team this will help him miss that opportunity.
[b]Printers lashes out at Wally Buono
Printers and Buono

In the midst of his NFL workout tour, Casey Printers felt it necessary to say what may be a parting shot at B.C. Lions general manager and head coach Wally Buono.
"I will not forget how I was treated this past year as far as people kicking me while I was down. I won't forget how I was toyed with," Printers told Team 1040 in Vancouver on Thursday.
"That will always stick with me."
Printers confirmed to the station that Buono had told him that he would be the starter if he returned to the Lions next season.
"That's really fickle to me. Obviously, people have changed their tune. They want me to be the starting quarterback," Printers said.
The news didn't sit well Dave Dickenson.
"I don't want to be anyone's second choice," Dickenson said.
Printers then brought up being benched in the 2004 Grey Cup, and said he was bothered when he had to start last year when Dickenson was a late scratch.
"Why wouldn't you receive a call from your coaches saying, 'Be ready'?" he asked. "That stuff really bothers me."
Printers did say that he would still consider B.C. if offered a contract.
"I still want to be a B.C. Lion because of the city," he told the station. "I don't know where I'd be if people weren't coming up on a daily basis saying how 'we really respect and idolize you.'"
"The (NFL) situations that are occurring, I may have (an) opportunity, but there has to be a total commitment for me to sign a deal."
Printers has started option-year tryouts with NFL clubs this past week, including the Miami Dolphins and Kansas City Chiefs. He can be signed any time after Jan. 2 and can negotiate until Feb. 15. before he is obligated to return to B.C. and play out his option year.
