Personally I dont really understand the philosophy behind this tactic. If I had a star player who is unfamiliar with the Canadian game I'd be trying to give him the best opportunity BEFORE the season to get into gear. They are putting a big risk on this guy's image and career, if he is successful then it's just living up to expectations, if he doesnt dominate or even contend for a rushing lead, then its a failure, in my opinon of course. I would just be cautious considering Ricky did make the comment "well, football is football" when asked about how difficult it would be to make the transition to the CFL. Buckle up folks, the games are just about to start!
Hey Marchie, welcome to the boards.
No need to start a new Ricky thread. Feel free to express your view in the multitude of others.
