And Chad Owens should have been an Alouette Hall of Famer. :woozy_face:

Owens, a draft choice of the Jacksonville Jaguars, was on the Als’ negotiation list for six years, according to general manager Jim Popp. After suffering torn knee ligaments, Owens signed a practice roster agreement with Montreal in July 2009, dressing for the regular-season finale, at Toronto. Owens returned two kickoffs for 80 yards and three punts for 10 yards in that game.

He returned the following season for training camp, only to depart at the end. Head coach Marc Trestman stated at that time Owens was returning to his native Hawaii for personal and family reasons. A day later, he was traded to Toronto for a fourth-round draft choice.

As now has become public knowledge, Owens signed a decent contract, the Als believing he would play both receiver while returning kicks. When it became apparent he would play exclusively on special teams, Owens balked at Popp’s request to reduce his salary, walking out on the team.

“Look at what they had, a winning pedigree,” Owens said of Montreal. “They had all-stars across the board and had been doing it for years. I understood that. But I also knew what I could do. I made a decision in the best interests of me and my family.

“I’m thankful for what Montreal and Jim did,” Owens added. “They brought me into the league and gave me an opportunity to be a part of a team and football.

“But I was meant to be here.”

Tous d’excellents choix, des gars qui méritent pleinement cet honneur.

Vous allez me trouver fatiguant, mais l’éléphant (pas) dans la pièce est toujours Bryan Chiu. Je ne comprends toujours pas qu’il ne soit pas à ce panthéon. La seule explication serait queles membres des média ont tous une dent contre lui, ce qui fait qu’il n’est jamais en nomination.

Voici la liste complète des joueurs et bâtisseurs intronisés en 2024 au Temple de la renommée du football canadien.

Congratulations to all. I am a bit perplexed by the selection of Chad Owens. He was great, but all too briefly.

Je comprends. Mais il a tout de même joué dans la LCF pendant 8 ans et a performé à un haut niveau dès qu’il a été partant.
