Good to read the RR State of the Union article, sounds like Danny and Roy are pumped, but a few things caught my eye:
“President and CEO Jim Hopson highlighted the changes that are being made to improve the football product off the field, most importantly, the upgrade to Taylor Field… improvements to washrooms”
Is this really a big deal? Like, what were you peeing in before?
“He also mentioned that the â€˜Riders are within reach of their 13,000 season ticket goal, having sold 11,800 season tickets to date.”
This is big deal, good job Riderfans
Nothing controversial on the QBs, both present and past, sounds like the PR people had a script prepared there.
“Shivers added that he expects the â€˜Riders will win every game this season and that in 2005, they are in the best position they ever have been to achieve that goal.”
Holy crap Roy, win every game!! At least Danny had some reasonable goals last week which were ‘make the playoffs and ‘appear in the Grey Cup’. Nothing like Ol’ Roy to step up to the mike and say he wants nothing less than an undefeated season…GFL…
"Barrett commented that â€œto play in the Prairies, you have to do different things.â€?
“He noted that the â€˜Riders offence is aggressive both on the pass and rush”
As are most teams…that’s not different…
“…and rushing threats Matt Dominguez and Kenton Keith…”
Whoa…wait a sec…Dominguez a rushing threat? I thought he was a passing threat? Now that IS different, move Dom in as a fullback and, what, send Szarka wide?
"Shivers says â€œsize doesnâ€™t matter.â€?
Um, that’s not what Cosmo says…
Anyway, fodder for thought?
