Riders sign Kelly Bates

Interesting decision...maybe Wayne Smith is not healing as well as the Riders would like. Maybe we'll go back to an all-Canadian O line. That would be a ratio breaker.

My guess is that Taman is anticipating Wayne Smith will miss 5-7 games with injury, and his anticipation is logical. I wonder if this means that Marc Parenteau is not going to resign? Too bad if you ask me.

Give Joel Bell a full TC…he’ll be too good to take off that line, import or not.
