Well the Bomber board sure hyped this guy to heaven and back so we'll see if he makes the final roster.I believe they traded Gavin Walls for him flat out? Supposed to be a ST demon and decent backup.

The Bomber board hyped the bloody water boy to be the next All Star for crying out loud..... so this is just a guy who is going to be an All Star released to make room for a better All Star :roll:

Well the way they put it, every single they brought in is a Cam Wake or Anthony Calvillo kinda of all-star so it was just a matter of deciding who's going to be the biggest all stars LOL

lol so true… I wonder why Obie can’t fill our roster with perennial All stars???

Here's his highlight vid:

Looks like he has good vision but needs to work on footwork and speed.

Maybe someone has the information,but me I wonder why do the Tiger-Cats still have 79 players on the roster. According to my numbers there should be no more than 75 players.-68 +5 draft choices-2009and 2010- and 2 territorial exemptions.

From Drew and "The Scratching Post"

"As one commenter on this blog has already pointed out, the Cats appear to be over the 68-plus-non-counter roster limit. They aren't. But are using loopholes in CFL rules to keep a few guys around an extra few days."

Meanwhile in TO Borehamboy fails physical. :oops:

Looked pretty solid in those highlights.

Howdy Kittens!I really can't remember anyone being any more pumped about Van Sichem than what I'm seeing here .Regardless what I am curious about is your opinion of David Ball. did you give us something or is he TCF.The word is goodhands but thats it. From my prospective Van Sichem has potential but I never heard the details on his Med. failure.

David Ball will catch anything you throw at him but he's very slow.That's why he got cut.
