What is it about those Roughriders? First they pilfer Brandon Bridge. Then they manage to sign Vernon Adams Junior (who’s since joined the Hamilton Tiger-Cats). And now Rakeem Cato has signed with the Roughriders. The Richmond Roughriders, that is, of the Arena League. Here’s the Roughriders’ schedule this year. There you go, folks. While the Alouettes… Continue reading February 2018 – Rakeem Cato Signed By Roughriders
If you scroll back a couple seasons, you’ll notice that the second Reed was announced as GM (or at least since the first rumours of such were spreading) I was sure Reed would cut Cato, sign Durant at a massive salary, cut every decent player we had to accommodate Durant, and the season would be a spectacular… Continue reading February 2018 – No Quarterback, No Blog
Everybody else looks at the log-jam of free-agents and bla-bla-bla’s about who they should get, and who to get rid of. Let’s do things right: we’ll wait until the Alouettes sign players, then appraise what they’ll bring to the team. Of course, until we sign an actual starting quarterback the entire process, the entire season, the purpose this… Continue reading February 2018 – Free Urgency
This is always fun. Go to CFL.ca. Do a search for the word: Alouettes. Nada. BTW. The Arblows Re-signed SJ Green. Woot. Now go to TSN to check out some CFL news. Search for the word Alouettes again: zilch. Nada. Zip. Try the same with 3DumbNation. So glad to see Vernon Adams is settling in with… Continue reading February 2018 – Hello?
Apparently the Alouettes released Canadian born receiver Samuel Giguere. Two weeks ago. According the Pierre Vercheval of RDS, the Alouettes tried to pull the same “contract rescheduling” they’ve pulled with so many other players, last few years. From what I’m hearing, the Als may have some serious problems with the Canadian/American player ratio this season.… Continue reading January 2018 – Oh BTW – We Released Giguere
I’m already getting tired of this. Here’s a transcript of part of the interview with Als GM Kavis Reed. You can hear it on my previous post: “Since Anthony Calvillo has retired, we’ve been searching for that next franchise quarterback. I’m a firm believer, from a football perspective, that at some particular point you’re going… Continue reading January 2018 – Alouettes Sign Josh Freeman
In the past I’ve made the semi-sarcastic comment that Kavis Reed came to Montreal to dismantle the team that caused his most embarrassing CFL moment. If I ever saw Reed, my first reaction would be to yell, “Too many men Saskatchewan, mothafocka!!!” Not very mature, I’ll admit. Still, one has to question some of the… Continue reading January 2018 – What Is Wrong With Kavis Reed?
