    Agree with the comment that Turner deserves to be on the wall

    A big " AMEN" to that. Outstanding player , plus played for a long time and seldom injured. So nice to hear on the podcast that he still resides in Edmonton. Illustrates children's books, wow !!!!

    Loved the history segment in this podcast. Really enjoyed Sorensen being on the show with him recently retired and being familiar with this current team. Nice info about MOD being such a smart football player and helping out on the Oline calls.

    Charlie is my all-time favourite Eskimo - I've been waiting for a while now to do a spot on him, and I still am baffled how he didn't get on the WoH. 2008 would have been an ideal time; they enshrined Chris Morris, and having two guys who wore #60 go on the wall during the season we were celebrating our 60th season should have been a no-brainer, IMO.

    Then again, I'm still at a loss to explain how Don Luzzi gets in the CFHOF but John LaGrone doesn't? They have very similar stats both physically and defensively. Neither of them did much winning during the bulk of their careers; each of them won lineman of the year, and plenty of West and league-wide all star placements. I personally think they both deserve to be in there, but hey.. nobody asks me!

    New podcast out on July 23 rd. As always great banter been the gang, love the humor. They did a really nice job saying what went wrong in Montreal.

    History segment again a must to listen to. Mike picks the best Esk draft ever. Teases with some players from about three different era drafts then pulls a slam dunk and drops a bombshell with his pick. Took me by surprise but he backs it up with a long list of players that will get us greybeards thinking.

    It's such a treat any time you get to listen to Jaimo talk about his time with the Esks, great work Mike and Andrew!
