‘Cause I don’t get it.
I understood Kent Austin leaving. It took me awhile, but I got over it. The Fred Perry trade caught me completely off-guard, but I put my faith in Eric Tillman. Then Reggie Hunt left as a free agent for the Montreal Alouettes. I was unhappy, but I knew we couldn’t keep everybody.
But this – THIS – I DON’T UNDERSTAND AT ALL!!!!
We are TRADING the LEAGUE MVP – the kind of which we haven’t seen since Ron Lancaster back in the freaking ’70s – to the ARGOS, who already have Michael Bishop and signed him to a contract extension – FOR ABSOLUTELY FREAKING NOTHING!!!!!!!!
Do you know what we get in return? Do you? Well let me tell you. We get two guys WHO AREN’T EVEN FULL-TIME STARTERS and a 1st round draft pick in the Canadian draft, plus some other pick to be named later.
THIS IS RIDICULOUS, LUDICROUS, IMBECILIC, STUPID, INANE – ARRRRGGGHH!!!!!!!!!!!!
I thought we won the GREY CUP last year. I thought we were building a DYNASTY, not REBUILDING!!!!
I predicted that there was more to the Eskimos-Riders trade when we got QB Stephen Jyles. But I didn’t think trading Joseph was the ‘more’ part. At the VERY LEAST, we should have been given Michael Bishop in return. We’re handing them a ready-to-play QB, and they’re off-loading crap on us.
Eric Tillman, I am on my VERY, VERY, VERY last nerve with you. If the Riders SUCK this year, especially when they play Calgary ON MY BIRTHDAY, there WILL be hell to pay!!!!
As Stephen Colbert would say, “YOU’RE ON NOTICE!!!!”
