Not sure it’d be the end for Arbuckle even if Ottawa moves on.
Edmonton and Hamilton are far from set at QB. Toronto might be interested in having an experienced backup. But who knows what’ll happen with MBT in a couple weeks. Heck, even Calgary might have some interest given Maier’s mediocre numbers so far.
OTOH, Locksely and Pigrome are now out of work, and both have shown some flashes in their brief (esp. Pigrome) time on CFL fields.
I get it he was pissed… but as a marginal player in the CFL he has to earn his opportunities. It’s unlikely the incident, whatever happened, was the first event for the Elks to give up on him so easily. Keep in mind that this guy has a legal history including a DWI, Making Terroristic Threats and the illegal possession of a firearm while playing for the University of Texas. He should be grateful for whatever opportunity he may be given.
Oh well we shall see. I’m quirkily optimistic, for this game has the core ingredients to be absolutely crap-tastic but you know what folks, THIS is often when we are pleasantly surprised in life!
And this new quarterback Adams will either shine to some degree to solidify his starting role, and perhaps even have us wondering if this is the next CFL star, or he will poop the bed like Chris Leak, Johnny Manziel, Dominique Davis, Ron Burgundy, et cetera back in their day!
