Seen through the eyes of one who was there. Interesting response by Darian Durant resigning.

Great day down at McMahon was in the tunnels. Had a couple of flags, nearly all the players lined up and signed our flags. Great respect for the fans.
Cates is not playing, not game time. he said, "if it was the playoffs i'd go but its not worth it for this game".
Chick is gonna play, "hand is good, ready to go".
I told Darian he's gotta stay with us and sign a new deal and he said THIS infront of other players too, "I gotta go where they want me." and shrugged his shoulders. Wow.
Was talking with Cuthbert about it and he was surprised to hear he said that as well. Funny situation, Cuthbert and Suitor and standing together and i'm like I'm gonna go introduce myself. I go ever Cuthbert chats for about 20minutes while were watching practice. It was great. Great guy, super smart. I totally snubbed Suitor, I wanted to tell him to quit talking so much on the color, lol.
Wes Dressler, is short I mean wow.
My buddy has a Slack jersey and he had the name plate replaced. Anyways Bishop comes down the tunnel and he is signing his jersey and one of the other riders yell's that's old #17, LOL.
Gino tries to walk by the flag signing and I yelled at him to come sign and he says, "I didn't think you would want a lowly lineman" and starts tackling me in the hallway. Good times.
Oline is still banged up looks slighly unorganized.
No bochee ball thought for boreham and congi that you guys talk about. Just Congi kicking into the wind.
Had a good 10 minute chat with Foord and Hughes. Just shooting it around about strippers and stuff. LOL , ok guys.
Cuthbert says he comes to riderfans weekly to see what we are all talking about and his picked up on the ankle brace thing and is going to ask a few questions about it.
Cuthbert is as mystified by the logon/roberts thing as everyone else. Said he didn't give us a chance to win last week but will never count us out now.
Didn't see DJ, Fantuz, MD. Not sure if they made the trip or just weren't at practice.
Ken Miller says he's got the guys ready to go. And it really didn't take much to get them going cuz its a showdown for the west-final basically.
I asked him if we got 3 and 1 sorted out. He was a bit off guard to that but said that they do. They had some challenges but have focused on it.
Cuthbert also said that hands down that Mosaic is the loudest park in the CFL. My stamps insider said it was just crazy last week too.
Major props to us.
