    The big thing for me is his teammates. I can't see how his teammates could be happy. They would know what's going on way more than media guys and when both Jones AND Jackson both said the same thing. They have asked him to play some, not as much as he...

    I understand a player wanting to start or get more playing time. Every guy on the team should have that goal. Competition makes players better but I don't think I have ever heard of a player turning down playing time. I know it's not exactly what he...

    We will use Jones for the example.

    He's been the coach/GM for 2+ seasons and the Elks have sucked. Attendance was going down before him but it wasn't like it is now. The Esks used to have 20,000+ season ticket holders, I think more not that...

    If the players were worried about teams over spending on coaches and football Ops, I am fine if they want a per season cap but if you fire a coach and he has term left on his deal, it shouldn't count against next seasons cap.

    No different...

    That's a good thing. The league including the PA needs to be doing everything they can to improve the product and hopefully attract more fans. Hamstringing teams in any fashion that would impact them improving is stupid....

    I am sure Jones did get input from others but doesn't change my stance. He was the GM, he drafted him whether he was the guy advocating for Ford or he listened to others. He made the pick so logic says since you invested a pretty high draft pick, you...

    The Ford thing is baffling to me and makes me actually believe what Jones said about Ford declining to play.

    Jones drafted him and used a high draft pick to get him. Most GM's want to be right and often if things aren't going as expected,...

    I totally agree. I would like to see Ford have some packages but I am not one of the fans calling for Ford to start because I don't think MBT has been bad. They lost 2 games where the MBT and the Elks scored 37 and 34 points and they LOST. They need...

    I had zero confidence in either Jones or Simon as GM, I might have less confidence in Simon because I don't see how he wasn't pulling a ton of the strings or at least heavily, heavily involved when it comes to player moves. There is only so many hours...

    In all seriousness, I do think this has to mean the owner is picked and it's just a matter of getting all the documents in place and whatever transfers done. I don't have a clue how buying a community owned team works but I have to think it's not as...

    Just asking and I agree with what you said. It's year 3 and they aren't close yet. If a person looks at the Elks roster, in 3 years it's hard to pick out very many positions where they are for sure set. Sure there are a few guys who are for sure keepers...

    So you are done with Jones now because I thought you wanted to wait until the end of the season to see what happened? I am not disagreeing, just surprised.

    Jones can say they are in games and can't believe they lost so many games last second....

    I look at the Ceresna trade as another example of the team allocating money/assets to shore up areas that didn't need shoring up IMO.

    Gittens is a good Canadian receiver and of course it's always a positive to improve your team at all positions...

    I voiced my concerns about trading away Cerezna then not resigning Leonard because that was a lot of sacks, pressures and tackles gone all at once that would need to be replaced and so far, they haven't replaced them especially the pressures....

    I won't comment too much on the game because I wasn't able to watch it. I was in Calgary at the Stampede going to Nickleback. So my comments on the game are based on what I read and saw in highlights.

    The team has no defense. They don't...

    I wonder if the fans will turn on Ford pretty quick.

    I am on record as saying I think he has lots of raw ability, I am not sure if he can be a every game starter, not saying he can't but felt he needed more development time. But hearing...

    I say similar to my 2 boys. I stress working hard and taking pride in what they do and tell them if they do that in everything they do, they will do extremely well because...
