Crap for brains…

Okay. So I know in my last column I was emotionally spent. I was angry, frustrated and humiliated beyond belief – you try living in orange and black land. The land where the Lions are finally topping the news. The land where even the press calls most Lions fans “bandwagon jumpers”. I’m not lying about that last one. But before I went to bed on Sunday night I noticed an article on some website: “Kickers’ house attacked after Rider loss”.

What? Say that again?

And of course, out of burning curiosity, I clicked the link and read it contents. And I was shocked. Appalled. Dismayed. And humiliated yet again. Honestly – couldn’t they have at least dumped the manure on the right lawn? Not only do Rider fans everywhere look like complete nitwits, we’re also “directionally challenged” as well.

It’s sad that this happened. Riders fans are THE BEST fans in the world. I witnessed it first hand on Sunday. And we have a first-class team. We have a kicker that actually APOLOGIZED to us. What more do you want? Well, the NHLPA grovelling to the fans would be nice, but not gonna happen!

He’s human. He made a mistake. But other mistakes were made as well. Kenton Keith fumbling inside the 5 yard line. A holding call that wiped out a touchdown. Two TDs missed. 14 points. What’s 3 compared to that? And let us not forget the inability of the the defence to stop 2nd and long situations. Add it all up – it comes down to missed opportunities – by everybody.

Do I think it was wrong for Roy Shivers to place the blame on McCallum? I don’t know. In some ways yes, it others, no. But it’s time to move on.

The real question is, with 11 free agents, who’s coming back next year? We should focus on that and move forward – as hard as Sunday’s loss is to put behind us.
