Been taking in the Sr Bowl prep. Pretty pumped as I have missed out on it for a couple of years now…taking this in then off to the other coast for the Super Bowl. One thing I have to say is the CFL presence here compared to what I have seen in the past is night and day. I would speculate every team has representation of 3 or more…but the Riders…just wow. I don’t know if they were handing out promo gear to contacts and a lot happened to have it on today or what…but there is a PILE of Rider geared up spectators…and I use spectator loosely, because they seem to be doing more than casually watching, with a lot getting right in there. I have seen several members of the Rider Staff…like probably half, so I am wondering if they are all here or will be here at some point. I would say there are a few dozen people in Green “participating” which means they gave a lot of gear to really good contacts who are big fans of Jones and/or Murphy (they would not wear it to this otherwise…it is too big of a deal), or the scouting staff has exploded in size! I am actually wondering if they brought on a pile of consultants for a few months because of the intense roster turnover…any way I shake it I am crazy impressed by it. There is no way these guys are all part of a full-time Rider scouting team…it is WAY too big for that!
Just wondering if anyone has heard or read anything? Has the team announced anything in regards to scouting? I was pretty laid back today, but will be interacting more tomorrow, so maybe I will hear more…figured I would put out a feeler on it.
