    I'll be with you in the concourse for the frosty beer at halftime not because the act isn't Canadian but because it's country. I could care less if the act is Canadian or Martian. If I like the genre I'll come back from taking a whiz and getting a beer to watch. If I don't like the genre I'm quite content to spend all of halftime in the concourse while those who are fans of the act or style enjoy the show. For the record my favourites of the 36 GCs I've attended are American acts; Imagine Dragons in 2014 and Lenny Kravitz in 2007. Even Fallout Boy in 2015 I found to be more to my taste than many Canadian performances and I'm now 62. Tragically Hip in 2004 and Nickleback in 2011 suited me much more than the 2017 GC recycle job of Shania Twain. Regardless if I like the style I'll watch. If I don't I'm happy for those who do enjoy whoever is playing.

    3DownNation reporting Devon Claybrooks has been fired by the Lions. Really surprised by this.

    I guess? I really felt like Claybrooks deserved another year at least. The team responded well in the second half after they replaced their O-line coach.
    There must be some serious conflict in the vision of things between Hervey & Claybrooks.

    Re: Around the CFL - 2019

    Seems like there's a lot of difference in vision between Hervey and everyone else in the world not called Diesel... Like the guy and he's always been nice to me but sure doesn't seem to get along with many. Claybrooks should have had another year to show what he can do. What did they expect him to do? Turn into Wally B from the get go?

    No kidding, I'm on the edge about letting Maas go after year 4 as a coach. You have to let someone learn or else you are just training another teams coach. IMO Claybrooks issue was that he hired his friends as coordinators, which is a fairly easy fix.

    I suspect Claybrooks will wind up somewhere after all the off-season hiring/firing dust has settled.

    For sure, to good of a coordinator to be out of a job to long.

    Wonder what his contract length was for? Would he even take a coordinator role at this point?

    Re: Around the CFL - 2019

    With Campbell and Claybrooks now unemployed. How can it be that there hasn't been an announcement on Chamblin. Since getting shut out by Edmonton in 2014 his only victories include:

    - a season ending mop up game with Reilly sitting to nurse an injury with no standings implications (W vs. Nichols)
    - a Winnipeg 2nd half collapse (W vs. Nichols)
    - and three wins against a historically horrible team in the middle of an 11 game losing streak where the average score was 32-14.

    This stretch of included a 1-20 stretch of football.

    Re: Around the CFL - 2019

    I’m very surprised by this and I honestly wonder how much of this decision was Hervey and how much came from above him. Their defence was starting to turn things around the 2nd half of the year and their offence showed improvements after the Oline coaching change.

    Now they have to start over again. I would’ve given him a 2nd year.

    If this was actually Hervey's call then this is probably the first thing I've seen him do or say (outside of a couple of trades and him questioning Jennings work ethic in public) that I've really had a problem with as I really liked him as a GM here. Unless DC had a major attitude problem he should have definitely gotten a second year. It wasn't as bad as Toronto or Ottawa where they sucked right through the end of the year with no end in sight. The Lions showed marked improvement in the last few games.

    Maas and Campbell to BC in some capacity. That's what I see shaking down after all this is said and done.

    Can't see either of them accepting a coordinator role next year as they will still both be paid by their old teams. At least I think Campbell will be.

    I could. Both guys have worked with Hervey in some form, no?

    Give one of the guys as assistant HC title and they'd consider if I have to think.

    If Maas gets fired the Eskimos could be on the hook for the difference in pay.

    To be honest I'm not exactly sure how the money works here. If Maas leaves and takes a reduced rate coordinator job, does his coaching contract become null or are the Eskimos just on the hook for the difference? And if he's willing to take a coordinator position somewhere else, do you think he would take one here if offered?

    I'm of the opinion that both of those guys will be head coaching somewhere or not coaching at all next year.

    Hervey has asked for permission to interview Rick Campbell. So it begins.

    As a side note, how does Corey Chamblin still have a job???

    The same way that Kavis was able to hold on to a job with the Esks and Als.

    And what way is that? Bad management?

    The Argos changed their management and I don't think Pinball is that stupid.

    Did Rick leave his playbook in the office like Higgins did here? Does Danny's dad have mob ties in Ottawa as well as Montreal???

    I just watched the video of the entire presser. It’s interesting.

    The reporters asked questions to which they already knew the answers. They’ve seen & heard everything throughout the season. There’s usually a gentleman’s agreement to keep things on the DL in good faith, but I guess the people there wanted to make things public for some scoop & hits & clicks on Clay’s way out.

    So Ed is caught - they already know the truth. He can’t lie, but then he looks bad to everyone that didn’t see the day to day.....but saw the day to day translate into sloppiness etc on the field.

    Fair...unfortunately there is a large emphasis on guys up for most outstanding player getting their teams into the playoffs which is unfair IMO and is what probably did Burnham in. When was the last time that a player was up for MOP from a non playoff team? Can't think of one off the top of my head.
