    Me too. I hope Chambers got a degree in something decent at Wilfred Laurier - he may need to put it to use soon. At 30, and not close to playing a full season in six years, I don't think he's gonna get an offer. (and as I type this, watch the Esks go and sign him for a third time )

    Probably accurate. I don't think he played in the Argos home game - and they had a lot of guys on the sidelines for that one.

    Kevin adds to his real bad twitter history. Dude should have probably shut down his account after the Ottawa incident.

    What's he talking about? There has to be a back story.
    Out of my mind; back in five minutes.

    Guessing he thinks he's more valuable than some behind the scenes are giving him credit for???




    People talk about Kevin being an excellent candidate for a coaching position down the road. I personally don't see it.

    I was really excited when he signed here a couple years ago. Despite the fact he's a Stampeder, I hope he can stay healthy and do his thing.

    The denizens over on RF were wondering if the Bombers would again be providing a stream as they did last week. Apparently the Bombers confirmed that they wouldn't be.

    I believe the Riders are refusing to stream the game...

    I was quite surprised to hear this considering how little he has played since 2016. We will have to see how well he can fill the giant hole left by Singleton.

    I would have to think Chambers is near the end of the line. As for Coombs, I'd forgot his injury history so that is definitely something to worry about. I suspect he will catch on somewhere and as a former 3rd overall I am sure he was making decent coin with the Argos...

    Re: Around the CFL - 2019

    Listening to the Als / Redblacks game on TSN 690. It's preseason, so make of it what you will...but Montreal leads Ottawa 18-9 on a couple of big-play TD's, one each from Pipkin and Adams.

    The Eskimos had better not be sleepwalking next week. The Als might not be the best...but they won't be a pushover either.
    Keep an open mind, and you never know who might walk in...

    Spoke too soon. 20-20 late in the 4th, and the Als' 4th stringer just threw a critical pick.

    Preseason, so the game ends in a 20-20 tie.

    I don’t know who the head ref was but I couldn’t understand a word he was saying all game.
    Well, gentlemen, by all means, I think we ought to have an introspective moment of silence for poor old Tin-Tin.

    I'm guessing less than 3000 at that game in Montreal. I know it's preseason, but that is not a good situation.

    The Riders' rookie QB, 23-year-old Isaac Harker from the Colorado School of Mines (real school, look it up), is putting on a show in pre-season. New receiver McRoberts sounds like a solid find, too.

    Real shoot-out going down in Regina. Even for pre-season, it sounds like it's been an excellent display from both sides.

    I am hearing that O'Brien has landed with the BC Lions.

    Looks like Hervey and Claybrooks know just as little as Sunderland and Maas in employing a guy like this.

    That coupled with the Edwards and possibly Woodman starting roles makes for an interesting conversation if someone wants to have it

    Well... now that Hervey's hired him, I'm sure he's a much better quarterback

    O'Brien's going to be getting the "Vulcan Mind Probe" for sure. Lions are in here week two.

    Re: Around the CFL - 2019

    I might check him out, but only if the price is right. He's got CFL experience, which we don't have in our backups right now. Doesn't seem like the kind of QB Maas likes to work with though.
    Out of my mind; back in five minutes.

    I really thought the would shop Bethel Thompson. I guess that means they aren't sure about Franklin and want to keep MBT around... or they're completely sure about Bridge's inability and want to keep MBT around.

    That is funny stuff. Seriously, it probably speaks to Reilly’s comfort with him as a set of eyes on the sideline. It was often said he was good at knowing systems and breaking things down.

    Agree 100%. I think it was Kilgore's surprising performance in preseason (and O'Brien's subsequent struggles) that wound up with O'Brien being released.

    Ed is neither genius nor idiot for signing him, and Brock is neither genius nor idiot for releasing him.
