THIS is why someone OUTSIDE of the city, outside the DAILY bump and grind of a club MOST Montrealers know, inside and out, year after year…why ANY such truth that sees the light is a PARTIAL one. AND partial truth has a nasty habit of illuminating JUST enough to see, but NOT enough to make… Continue reading December 2016 – One Last 3DownNation Post?
You know what? I’m sorry. I was WRONG. It IS you. It’s DEFINITELY YOU. As rumours continue to suggest that Kavis Reed will be given the vacant GM job* on this team…it appears a decision needs to be made on my part. If, as I’ve pointed out in recent posts, Alouettes ownership is prepared to… Continue reading December 2016 – It’s Not You, It’s Me
As yet another article appears expressing confusion at the Alouettes’ apparent difficulties in finding their new GM…THIS time on CFL.ca…I take a stab at expressing my perspective on the issue.

My recent comments… Continue reading December 2016 – Slaying the 3-Headed Beast
Zeke’s put out a piece about the “3-headed monster” proposed as heading the Montreal Alouettes…with Chapdelaine remaining as Head Coach and OC, Kavis Reed as GM, and Danny Maciocia occupying some “murky” position as “director of football operations”. No doubt it’ll go down something like this: Maciocia will keep his tenured position at U of… Continue reading December 2016 – In the Murky Depths

Popp convinced a reluctant Wetenhall to retain his services as Head Coach in order to preserve Calvillo’s un-merited position as offensive-coordinator.
