Training Camp begins

I attended training camp on Tuesday morning and noticed a defensive player #74 with the name "Storie" (I believe?) on his jersey. It's been FOUR DAYS since then and nowhere have I seen any mention of this player. Was I hallucinating or having a flashback?? or is this some "secret" player they've brought into training camp without informing anybody?

8) "mightypope", you surprise me !! Of course you were having a combination flashback and also hallucinating, on
    that players name !!
   You were actually seeing the ghost of good old "Red Storey" out there on the field at Mac !!!     <!-- s:lol: -->:lol:<!-- s:lol: -->

Well you'll be happy to hear that you were definitely not hallucinating as this picture shows a definite somebody wearing a definite number #74 jersey in T.Camp. The only problem is that whoever this player is , is a total mystery as there is no #74 listed on the current roster. :? Whoever he is , he is the leader of the pack ahead of the rest of the "D" in running laps. :slight_smile:

It's good to see the coaches running with the players, rather than just telling them to run. Coaches need to stay is shape also.

He is listed on the updated roster that was handed out at camp just not listed on the web site

You mean like Maher, Huggins, and LaQuan Willams?
Could you tell us who "he" was listed as on that handed out roster?

Blasphemy Tipper!!! Don't you be dragging old-time Argos into this training camp roster mystery. :wink:

This guy is quite the Storie @ camp

The guy is a beast and has a good communication skills on the field and sidelines he plays a bit like Simoni tuff hard nosed football with an edge , hey Listen i put some of the blame on Mazoli and Matthews They are QB,s and should not be mixing it up with D line guys and getting in their faces , he was quick to know he made a mistake and he talked with everyone involved at 1st i was put off saying ok here is our 1st cut of the year then i seen how he responded to the discipline and was again all in on him

#Ticats K Cody Mandell trying 60 yard field goals with holder Luke Tasker during break between practices. Hit one so far.

I really like the sound of that last one, thats a positive just to know gw can hit from deep if we are desperate.

The injuries are slightly concerning but hopefully just some minor things good to get Revenberg and Girard taking some reps at centre give them a different perspective.

5 days till an actually 60min game of football is played, not soon enough I don't know if I've ever wanted a season to start so badly after how the last two season ended.

Banks returns kicks and plays a minor role on O. He can miss most of camp without having any real effect on the team. What he has cannot be coached anyway.

It is great to see ZC back on the field. Even if it is just training camp.
That shows he is comming along faster than expected. I hope.

I wonder if Jeff Reinbold will go old school with Banks and Owens.
What I mean, is doing the reverse on kick or punt returns.

You do not see that very often, but they are fun and exciting.
It is not as easy as it looks. It takes perfect timing or it is a disaster.
Can result in a fumble or collision.

Needs to be practiced to perfection.

Here is a report from Drew Edwards

Okay, it's been a WHOLE WEEK now and not a single soul can tell me who #74 is at training camp. Wow!!!!

According to the Windsor Star, Tyler Storie is one of several players from the OFC's AKO Fratmen attending CFL camps this year: "...while safety Tyler Storie is in camp with the Hamilton Tiger-Cats".

The Ticats also have a few players from the CFL transactions page that I don't think are accounted for in either published player deletions or the current Ticats.ca roster:

http://www.cfl.ca/transactions/

NAT Preston HUGGINS (LB) Western University
INT Laquan WILLIAMS (WR) Maryland
INT Ronnie WINGO (RB) Arkansas
INT Tevrin BRANDON (DB) Connecticut

Williams is probably WR Williams #82 from Drew Edwards' chart. Don't know what happened to the other 3.

Edit:
Huggins was only re-added on May 31, so I can see why he's missing from the current roster, and Williams was only added on May 29. Wingo was added April 15, and Tevrin was added January 12. It's possible they've been removed from the roster since then, but there's no published record of it that I can see.

Maybe somebody who knows more about league rules can explain further. If a guy like Storie has junior eligibility left, is there a rule that allows the Cats to bring him to camp without adding him to the roster? I vaguely recall stories along those lines from prior years.

Banks still a no-show. I wonder if there is more to this story than "family law issues"

#Ticats holding a “kick for a treat? contest… But Mandell misses his. Austin backs up Maher to the 55… And he makes it.

Correction: #Ticats @LindenGaydosh did some individual work at practice today, no team stuff.

Drew EdwardsVerified account ?@scratchingpost 1h1 hour ago
#Ticats injury update: still no @tedlaurent, @LindenGaydosh or @Filer64.

Way to "dig" s/b. :thup: :thup:
