    Before you insult a man, walk a mile in his shoes. That way, when you insult him, you'll be a mile away, and have his shoes.

    Re: Esksfans Dictionary, volume 1

    C'mon guys, I meant this to be halfway serious - just using some of the expressions we commonly use that may not be familiar to the casual fan, including some funny ones. I wouldn't have put it in the Announcements forum if it wasn't intended to be that way.

    Let's not turn it into a Rider- or Stamp- or any-other-bashing thread. There are plenty of other threads for that, if you have to do it.

    Thanks.

    Hey, you remember how repetitive it got when a certain then-newbie poster couldn't figure out the nickname of a certain wide receiver.

    I just want to try and avoid that, as well as have a bit of fun. Just not at the expense of any other fanbase - we can do enough of that when we play them.

    If an Esks player let up on the field they wouldn't be considered a true Eskimo.

    If the Esks Dictionary doesn't take a shot the Riders or Stamps then it ain't an "official" reference.
