Wisdom from Henry Burris

Some remarks that fans of every team should keep in mind...

From this article, talking about Darius Durant. Might apply to other young quarterbacks <cough, cough>

"He's going to make the mistakes and that's going to happen," Burris after Calgary's walk-through at McMahon Stadium. "It's a situation where you have to be patient with a young quarterback. There are going to be times when the fans think he should have reacted a different way than he did. It's lot easier sitting the bleachers playing John Madden football than when it's taking place right in your face."

Burris also offered some advice for Durant, who will experience as many challenges as Burris endured in his first stint with the Riders.

"You're the premier of Saskatchewan right now and whatever you say and do will be held against you in the court of law," Burris said. "There will always be somebody who objects to what you have done. You have to play your game, do your job and don't press.''
