    Sure. That part's great.

    But thank god it's his last day. Let's just call a spade a spade. A potential dynasty has become a retooling project under his watch because of his decision making.

    I don’t like the wording they used in this announcement. Reminds me of a corporation that collects money for its customers and then says how much money they are giving to charity.

    No comment on some of the people in the photo, but good for the Esks' in general. Hopefully all or most of that money is going where it's needed rather than "other places".

    I agree. The only part that Len deserves any credit for is the growth in the pot due to making the whole thing electronic... and even then, it would have come about in time anyways. Possibly got it in place a year or two earlier with some foresight.

    This is, more so, an accomplishment of the fans attending games rather than the club or any one person. Good on them for being a facilitator of it, and it's nice to see the funds flowing to support all levels of minor football in and around Edmonton.

    Agreed but let's focus on the positive of it, that's a lot of cabbage for amateur football.
    and by amateur football I mean youth football not the Riders offence.

    100% agreed - lots of positive in the result.

    The Edmonton 50/50 draws are talked about all over the league, and no other club comes close to the results. They outpace other cities by far more than the crowd size difference would explain, and through the past 5 years when the Edmonton economy hasn't exactly been booming.

    which means Edmontonians are compulsive gamblers with morals which is better than a compulsive gambler with no morals I guess =)

    Re: Champions!

    Cool story...thought I would include it in the Champions thread because of the Natey Adjei connection.

    Re: Champions!

    OK another cool story. Posting in this thread because of the Damon Allen connection. Two MVP winning Grey Cup performances for the Green and Gold. Still don't understand how this guy is not on the wall.

    I'd seen that at the games before, but never knew what was inside. Glad we finally got some access.

    my better half works for the Brick corporate office so I've been able to get inside during a game and see the kids in there. Absolutely amazing things they are doing - the smiles on those kids' faces is truly priceless.
