He was diagnosed with prostate cancer about two years ago.
And he's previously been pretty open about it and has been active in fundraising efforts around cancer in general.
Tevaun Smith finally signs with the Green and Gold. Hopefully he was worth the wait!!
Now if only Auston Pasztor would finally sign.
If he was, we can thank the GM of the Lions.
It all looks the same on the balance sheet though. And based on the limited information we have, it seems uncertain whether or not board members even attend games.
That’s a HUGE signing - he has the potential to be a game breaker, especially considering his passport.
We really need a marquee wide receiver to pair with him, especially if Walker ends up leaving.
So we shouldn’t be happy about any signing if the player was originally found by the previous GM. Sorry but that’s a lame take.
I’ve been anti-Rhodes/pro-Hervey all along, but that doesn’t mean I can’t be satisfied about signings I like just because Hervey was originally involved in bringing them in.
What’s the statute of limitations before we can just look at a move on it’s own merit without it becoming a Hervey is better conversation. He made mistakes too.
First Reilly...then Walker.
Nice legacy for Len Rhodes.
That's a lot of cash. But, better to overpay for something valuable than get something useless at a bargain price. Hard to say what will happen with the CBA/salary cap though, this could be the new going rate for a high end QB. Seems to me that $500,000 was the benchmark in recent years based on the limited amount of salary info that becomes public.
Here's the free agent QB list:
Brandon Bridge (SSK)
Zach Collaros (SSK)
Cody Fajardo (BC)
Kevin Glenn (EDM)
Trevor Harris (OTT)
Jonathon Jennings (BC)
Travis Lulay (BC)
Bo Levi Mitchell (CGY)
Bryant Moniz (HAM)
Dakota Prukop (TOR)
Ricky Ray (TOR)
Drew Willy (MTL)
Gotta think Lulay and Mitchell are staying with their teams. Harris would be interesting.
That’s a lot more money than I thought those guys were making. Didn’t there used to be a cap of around $500,000 for franchise players?
No doubt we end up with one of the BC guys after tomorrow. Meh, saw this coming for awhile. CFL is in trouble, might be a good idea to save a little on the QB.
I bet Harris ends up an Eskimo tomorrow.
Would be nice but I highly doubt it.
Good thing we kept Maas because Mike was a fan of him.
Lulay will get injured signing the contract.
I can't help but think they'd be smarter to try and grab a younger QB on a cheaper deal and improve the rest of the roster instead of spending big on Harris.
This is a bad idea.
Was just thinking the same thing. If Harris leaves Ottawa, Hamilton should be an overwhelming favorite to comes out of the East. I bet BC drops to 6-1 in fairly short order. Surprised how slow the books have been to react.
Harris, who I don't exactly love, would be the only real option. I don't think he would leave the East though. No reason to come to the tougher conference unless the money is too good to turn down. Collaros is one hit away from the nursing home. I'm surprised Ray is considering playing again.
I certainly appreciate those people who work with charities. My family and I do this too.
….But the job that he got paid for was running the EE and he wasn't very good at that. The other activities were admirable but had nothing to do with running the team. Its the classic example of not knowing what the mission statement is/was-- just win baby-just win. Winning became of secondary importance to Rhodes and the Board because they saw the charity functions as the main task at hand.
now Jason Maas will be exposed as the fraud coach he is
Good. Zero idea how that idiot kept his job.
