I have nothing? Are you kidding me? The riders finish ahead of the Esks for ONE year, and I have nothing? Perhaps, if the riders hadn't CHOKED, yet AGAIN in the playoffs, and had actually won something, I would have nothing. 18 years and counting, without winning jack squat, in an 8 team league. 2 Grey Cups total in a 90 year history. That's what you've got. I'll take 13 Grey Cups and 33 of the last 34 years in the playoffs any day over what you got.
And rw, I really don't think that it will take that long for the Esks to rebuild. Not all ownership groups are as incompetent as the F-troop you had not too long ago. The stamps may have missed the playoffs for 3 consecutive years with that circus group running the show, but were back in it the next year, after being taken over by new ownership. If there's one thing the Eskimos have proven over the past 3 and a half decades, it's consistency. Not sure how one bad year throws away all that credit amongst the minds of some. Perhaps wishfull thinking.
