As I recall there was actually a fair number of posts displaying outrage that Wes Cates might say something less than flattering about the Stampeder organization/management.
"Wes Cates is to nice a guy".
"Wes Cates has friends on the Stamps; Why would he say such things".
"No way Wes Cates would say that--show us the proof, links, articles".
The only "odd" thing, as I recall, was that the comment was off on a bit of a tangent (sort of like this is now) and the response the poster got.
Calling some of the people in the Stampeder organization "backstabbers" given their treatment of Higgins seems to be letting them off easy. I'd say worse.
If Corey Holmes feels betrayed over being released, and says something disparaging about ET or the Riders, well he is entitled to his opinion.
I'll be surprised if he says such things.
But I won't lose any sleep over it if he does.
