I honestly don't know how Jones could even entertain this idea let alone go ahead with it. It even makes me wonder why Murphy or Reynolds would green light this, or did Jones go commando and just went ahead without their knowledge? If so then I this team is in very big trouble and the worse may be yet to come.
I mean seriously how does bringing in a guy that hasn't played in a year and is so badly out of shape help the team now? NFL cuts are close and we bring in this clown? Yes I don't see why or how fans could be upset about this.
Apperntly when asked about Mitchell's tweets Jones replied I don't go on social media and wasn't aware of Mitchell's tweets. Wow then I guess that make it all perfectly fine now doesn't it? Our great leader and GM has no friggen clue about a player's current personal background. That make you feel confident in who we bring in? Also now the stink is all ready starting to stick to the team.
For Immediate Release
August 31, 2016
Ottawa, ON – Khalif Mitchell, who was just added to the Saskatchewan Roughrider’s practice roster, has again been using his personal Twitter account to spread antisemitism. In 2015, Mitchell was fined by the CFL and Montreal Alouettes for hateful, antisemetic social media activity, and was dropped by the team shortly thereafter.
In response to today’s development, Shimon Koffler Fogel, CEO of the Centre for Israel and Jewish Affairs (CIJA), issued the following statement:
“We are deeply troubled that Mitchell is continuing to spread messages of hate against the Jewish people. The Montreal Alouettes and the Canadian Football League did the right thing in 2015 by denouncing Mitchell’s hateful tweets and levying a fine against him for his troubling behaviour.
“Clearly, Mitchell has not learned from his past mistakes. We have engaged with the CFL and the Saskatchewan Roughriders and they have assured us they are investigating.
Yup real nice Jones you've really made the team look so good and something the fans and players can be proud of.
This has turned into a circus of horrors with Mitchel the ***clown leading the parade on a unicycle and Jonesy on stilts right behind him juggling mistake after mistake after mistake trying to keep them from all falling on his head.
