    There must be some serious conflict in the vision of things between Hervey & Claybrooks.
    I thought he'd get a crack at one more year but at the end of the day 5-13 is 5-13 and 0-10 within the division is 0-10 within the division. Rare is it that a HC gets another chance after a season like that.

    Maas' goose may be cooked. As a biased BC fan I like to think BC beat the same teams as Edmonton this season; Montreal, Ottawa, Toronto and BC.

    They did. The only difference between the two teams was all the head-to-head matchup, which didn't go so well for you.

    Surprised he lasted the season, TBH.
    Out of my mind; back in five minutes.

    So you're saying there's no chance of getting a tryout in Edmonton? We can always use a fast DB.

    What a waste of talent. If he had invested more effort into his on-field play than into his "big man on campus" persona, he'd be an unstoppable force by now.

    Interesting read: https://www.tsn.ca/the-charleston-effect

    Y'know, for all the hype that Huff gets about his GMing abilities, I'm surprised that Hughes was the guy that he chose to trade to make cap space, and not someone else (salary cap reasons). Hughes has done this year what many of us thought Odell would do with the Lions.

Has great insight to all the behind the scenes stuff that goes on in the CFL.

    Wonder if he recommends his own guy, McEvoy. But maybe being a west coast guy McEvoy might not want to jump ship for a team that does not have a owner yet.

    Bomber radio announcer , Bob Irving, on twitter says it's just a matter of working out a new contract with Mike O'Shea according to BB GM Kyle Walters. Certainly would diminish the Argo's options if they tie the can to Chamblin.

    Re: Around the CFL - 2019

    Very CFL to not release the new details of the deal with TSN. Why does it have to be such a secret?

    I also wonder how much each team gets from this deal? $50mill/season in a 9 team league...in theory that would be around $5.5 mill each but I imagine the league takes some off the top.

    I hope Ambroise negotiated for more as attendance is dropping and teams need to make up for that loss. And that he also made sure TSN gave the league more and better exposure.

    Do they also decide which way to shade the games for the next few years?

    Re: Around the CFL - 2019

    Anyone hear DeVier Posey's interview with Jamieson on his show today. Posey was pretty impressive. Most impressive was when Jamieson asked him about his role in the 2017 Grey Cup. It was an obvious opportunity to for Posey to toot his own horn. Mostly what he talked about was how dialled in they were during the week of practice and how much S. J. Green knows about the game of football and could tell how much of an influence Posey was going to be in the game based on what he saw on the field.

    Yup, absolutely terrible CFL & Grey Cup coverage.

    TSN is such a joke.

    TSN needs the CFL as much as the CFL needs TSN, but it feels like it’s mostly a take and take more relationship that favours TSN.

    100% this. If Sportsnet got CFL, I'd be able to finally cut the cord completely and just subscribe to Sportsnet Now. TSN wouldn't get my money.

    Same here, CFL is the only reason I subscribe to TSN. I guess it speaks to my love of CFL football that I keep paying for a channel that I only utilize half the year.

    Hell, if it wasn’t for the CFL I wouldn’t even have cable to be honest.
