    Re: What Does This Team Need? Stay or GO?

    I noticed yesterday that another one of my former favourite Esks Deon Lacey signed with the Riders making their linebackers n outstanding group .Why can't we sign very many of our former stars who leave the Esks to try their luck in the NFL Ladler with the lions Lacey with the riders just to name a few ,those guys were 2 of my favorite Eskimos when they were here during our Grey Cup in 2015 .There are lots of other teams who their players are loyal to them when they return to CFL resign with their former team ,What aare we doing wrong? Or aare we just being out bid on everyone of our former players ? Any ideas ?

    Aonther one was Dexter McCoil with Calgary last season. Yeah I was thinking the same thing. When you think about it though all of those guys signed with teams where they were familiar with either the coaching staff, general manager, or players (although with McCoil it would have only been JC Sherritt unless I'm missing some other connection). Our coaching staff and GM are totally different and there are only a few players left from a few years ago so those guys really wouldn't have known very many people from the current organization and vice versa. I agree though its very disappointing.

    Deon Lacey signed with Craig Dickenson's team. Lacey was a standout on special teams, and he would likely have had a very solid relationship with Dickinson from his time here in Edmonton.
