    Flame Rhodes Real Legacy

    He paved the way for our most hated rival to celebrate a GC in our stadium and in our locker.

    I doubt he even understands the magnitude of how much of a collective insult that is to current and former players who bled for those colors.

    That is his legacy.

    I hit them as hard as I could on the mouth right from the start of the game so they were thinking this was going to be a long day. Sooner or later one of us had to quit. And it wasn't going to be me.

    I wouldn't say Ed was quite there yet, but I fully believe he was well on his way to becoming our Huff.

    We had better than a Huff. We had Hugh Campbell.
    No one has come close to replicating with the Esks what Hugh achieved as first coach then GM/CEO. Things finally were back on track in 2015 ... then our coaching staff was stolen ... then a year later some idiot (guess who) canned our winning GM. Looks like we are heading back down the drain unless someone with football smarts gets to handle the wheel.

    He can’t comprehend this because he is too busy concentrating on his mouth breathing.

    I didnt think this was that great of a Calgary team. In fact the worst one of the past three years is the only one that won a Cup,and likely didn’t deserve it.

    I wouldn't say that the Stampeders didn't deserve to win the Grey Cup but I would say they were the worst Stampeder team of the last three years.

    When was the last time that someone in that position was ever fired from the Eskimos? Coaches? Sure. GM? Sure. Not that position. He reports to the Board, and the Board of the EEFC is a hollow body of local businesspeople who put boards like that (and the honorariums they receive) in their back pocket and sit on them.

    Re: Rhodes Real Legacy

    I hope that Rhodes gets fired because he is a lousy Pres and has been the reason this organization has gotten weaker and weaker over the years because he either drove people away or got rid of them himself. But I have ZERO confidence that the board will do anything because they don't give a crap about the fans, the football product or the community. All they care about is money. So even though the crowds are getting lower and the overall care factor from the fans is dropping, they are making money because of sponsorship. Ever since Rhodes has become Pres, the emphasis on the football team and the product has gone down but boy have the amount of sponsors and commercials we see every single game gone up. EVERYTHING is sponsored. For every single stoppage in the game, we get multiple commercials. Hell, he got the stadium named for 10 games. For 355 days of the year it's Commonwealth Stadium. For 10 days a year on a game day, it's "Brick field at Commonwealth Stadium". He sucks as a Pres of this team but he's a hell of a salesman so I have no doubt he will be able to sleaze his way and sell it to the board why he is worth keeping.

    We should have pulled a Scotty Bowman and painted the dressing room they were in with an oil based paint a day before the game. The fumes would have left them "fuming".

    To be fair...we didn't exactly put tarps on the floor in Calgary in 93'... Doesn't make it suck any less though.
