Some big news out of Ridertown the last couple days..
Started with this tweet from Bo Levi Mitchell, responding to the Riders tweet about signing 6 new players:
"I bet none of the people they signed needed flights .."
What he meant by this, is that the Riders are keeping players around, off of the roster. This was later confirmed here by Darrel Davis:
Bo Levi Mitchell is right.[url=http://3downnation.com/2016/08/10/bo-knows-sources-say-riders-utilizing-many-95-players/]http://3downnation.com/2016/08/10/bo-kn ... 5-players/[/url]
The Calgary Stampeders quarterback has insinuated through social media, that the Saskatchewan Roughriders are playing fast and loose with CFL roster guidelines. Bo knows what’s happening.
According to a Roughriders source, the team regularly has up to 95 players in its stable. That’s more than two full game-day rosters.
Honestly, I'm not that surprised. The Riders regularly bend the rules (over salary cap in GC win vs us, Ratio issues last week, long practices, etc.)
Naturally the Riders fan reaction is to attack BLM. Their claim is that his $320,000 salary is too low, and therefore he must be getting money under the table. :roll:
