ALS, REINEBOLD PART WAYS

Montreal, November 27, 2012 - Montreal Alouettes general manager Jim Popp and head coach Marc Trestman announced on Tuesday that defensive coordinator Jeff Reinebold will not be back with the team in 2013.

The club indicated that it will not extend his contract, which expires at the end of the year, for the next season.

GOOD ! should not have been hired In the first place, some people just know how to weasel there way around and talk BS with no substance to back up their actions.

Reinbold isn't the same guy he was during his time in the CFL in 1998. He has matured and gone through a lot of changes in life.

Say what you will, but Jeff Rheinbold 14 or 15 years removed from the CFL walked back into the league and took his team further than the Riders.

The Riders should look at him for a position coach or Defensive Coordinator role.

Riders can have him, have a go at acquiring his service and good luck. He's free for the taking.

First place in the East Montreal determines right away that they have to part with their D coordinator. We continue to stay with our stay D coordinator who can't scheme to stop 2nd and 10 or more. Difference in how a elite team runs versus our current management.

Again...sick of all the closet GM's who have a better idea of how to run a professional football team. Get off the internet and go clean up your room like mom said or you won't get your allowance this week.

disagree Mr. Morin. The fans can see clearly. Reinbold couldnt match the standards they set in Montreal. Riders need to up their standards. Argos proved you can go from doormat to champ in 1 yr in an 8 team league. But you need the right personnel and coaches. Look how Ricky Ray looked under Macioca (at the end of his reign of error) and Hall. Now look how he looks under Milanovich. Reality is good coaches, schemes and game plan are as important as the players. Riders DB's may not be as good at Argos, but their defensive scheme is far inferior to what Chris Jones put out to throttle the Stamps.

Can't say I'm surprised Reinbold is dust.

Rienbold, still the same a**clown he was In 97/98, nothing mature about that.

Gm Ta Man might be Interested In Rienbold seeing that they are both former Blue Bomber alumni, but coach Chamblin would definitely have something to say about that and will make his own decision as to who joins his staff. Saying that, strange things happen In the good ole CFL

Mr.Morin said...

Did I ever say I don't realize the need for change? The point I was trying to make is everytime a player or coach is released, this section becomes inundated with let's hire him...let's bring him in.
Look I know that schemes and personnel are all crucial components of a succesful sports team. The point I am trying to make it just because somebody has been good in the past and is now available does not mean the Riders need to bring him in.
I truly believe that Taman and Chamblin are moving this ship in the right direction. Let them make these decisions; that is what they get paid for.
Sure our defence had issues last season. They also had some good times as well. Maybe Richie will be back, maybe he won't. But just because Jeff Reinebold is available does not mean BT and CC should drop everything and bring him in.
I am no different than most here in that I am a passionate fan and want the best available product on the field. However I also realize that I am not in charge of a football team and presumably never will be. I will do my job, support my team and hope they make the right decisions.

I'll offer an unbiased opinion. I thought his defense kind of came in to their own as the season went on. They started poorly but their defense was pretty decent at the end of the year.

I have no interest in him coming here but I must admit I was kind of surprised to hear he was let go.

And I do think he did an adequate enough job to turn up somewhere else next year.

Annual witch hunt has started...this years star is Richie Hall and the lynchmob will not be happy until he is gone. Then after he is gone the moment we do not win the Cup it will be onto the next whipping boy that has to be fired.

The reality is that we had the second best defence in the league and were in every game except one this year and could have won them. We often held teams to something like twenty points which should be enough to win. If we win that Calgary game we are in the Cup because BC was ready to be had by anyone that played them. Once in the Cup anything could have happened. So it came down to one play.

Ya Richie called zone defences in certain situations including the semi final (by the way all coordinators do that) - but that defence can be effective if the players execute. Was Richie out there on the field when Maze bit on the pump fake? No.

And as for Chris Jones - correct me if I am wrong but didn't the Riders own him in the playoffs when he was in Calgary? He never beat us in the playoffs once. So don't give me that he is a God. The defence that he put in for the Cup was the same successful formula that Richie had earlier in the season - shut down Cornish and make Glenn win the game - in the semi it came down to execution and we did not execute - but nothing wrong with the game plan.

Jones is a good coordinator. So is Richie or he would not have lasted in this league as long as he has and with as many different HC's as he has. The truth about how effective someone is relates to how he is perceived and respected by his coaching colleagues. Richie is clearly respected since every new coach that comes here hires him as their coordinator. To me he did a great job given all the roster turnover we had from 2011 - to have the number two defence with all those changes deserves applause.

There is no way we are changing coordinators on either side of the ball going into the home grey cup year - we need stability on this team after all the turmoil over the last few years. So get used to Dice and Richie in 2013. And to those naysayers - I will put out my recorded message....if you fire Richie - who do you want that would be better? So easy to say fire this guy and that guy but who is out there that your would prefer???

You know Mr.Morin this whole Richie Hall thing reminds me of the last two years of the Danny Barrett era. Some of the Rider Nation wanted him gone while people like you blindly defended him.
Sometimes the so called radicals know when something ain't working but if they express concern they're branded as bandwagon jumpers.
I just wish the Rider board would be more proactive instead of being reactive a couple of years too late.

Mr. Morin, If you truly believe Taman/executive management are moving the good ship Roughriders In the right direction, then you must believe In all false hopes and promises with continued on field product failure this professional football franchise consistently delivers to a deserved respected fanbase. Championships wanted and warranted, nothing less.

Hey Woz,

Maze didn't bite on a pump fake. He covered the short route exactly the way he was supposed to in that particular defense.

Maybe just admit you don't know, rather than pretending you do. And try to keep your posts under 500 words. My wrist gets sore scrolling through that drivel.

forward ; The Woz - lynchmob, whipping boy ???? mind your manners and language. As for the Riders, they backed Into the playoffs and seemed to play with no urgency or enthuseasim expected of a professional sports franchise and ended the season on a 5 game losing streak, this team shouldn't have to rely on a last minute play to salvage a season, enough said.

Woz and Mr. Morin are satisfied if the team is close to .500 and the problem is; so is the board. No one demands excellence.

Many of you Woz, Mr. Morin et al deserve to be Rider fans.

There's theory in counselling that helps people with low self esteem learn that we actually teach people how to teach us, and it's not the other way around.

You guys just keep going the way your going with the Riders and setting expectations and maybe it'll change some day who knows. You remind me of timid housewives that don't reign in husbands with poor behavior. You hold out home someday he'll change or you think it's you and not him.

Mr.Morin said...

One last comment from me today...all of you who continually complain that the team is no good and not getting any better, I have two points to make:
1) Last year we won eight games, and without a couple bumps in the road easily could have had 10 wins or more. The year earlier we won five. Simple math tells me that is an improvement, and;
2) If all you want to do is bitch, give up your tickets and/or start cheering for somebody else.

Anonymous said...

8 wins wow start a parade. 8 wins 3 up from 5 the year before wow that's really good. Beating Winnipeg and Hamilton that's something else to jump up and down about.

Simple math tells improvement? You think Montreal, and Toronto are going to sit still and rest on laurels?

Your record is who you are. That's it and that's all. There's no such thing as almost in Pro Football. That's why you never hear me say this game or that game doesn't matter. There are 18 games on a schedule and they all matter equally because that's how you're judged.

Personally they aren't going to win a thing next year and it'll be 5 game below .500 before Labour Day if they keep the same roster in tact.

Strange to see so many comments over the Alouettes Def Coord, when there was barely a peep over Sask getting rid of two assistant coaches...

Mr Morin, please get to a hospital If your sick, or get off the Internet and clean up your room.

Mr. Morin, if you had a nickel to your name yesterday and today you have a dime, simply math says you double your wealth! Wow ... talk about achieving high standards in life!

Hey anti-Hall fans why don't you pitch in to hire reinbold

Mike said...

I agree with mr.Morin. 8 wins is an improvement over 2011. Chamblin is a rookie haead coach and I think he did a fine job with what he ahd to work with. People we are a young football team. Rome was not built in a day. If you dont like it give up your tickets. I have had season tickets for 15 years .I have seen worse years than this year and last year. Now go back to your lazy overpaid jobs and let someone else run the football team.

Anonymous said...

Young team ! that comment has been said over and over since training camp last spring. The 2012 football season has come and gone, that's a lame excuse for a losing professional football franchise with only 3 championships to their credit. Unacceptable losing year In year out should not be tolerated by anyone who chooses to support the Saskatchewan Roughriders of the CFL. Shame on you Mike for telling people to give up their tickets If they don't like the current direction and the onfield product. This club would not exist without continued public financial contribution. You say you have held season tickets for 15 years, what the hell Is wrong with you, If anyone should know how this team survives, you would think It would be you, use your FN head before you spout off and tell others to go back to their overpaid lazy jobs.

Rien bold, go back to where ever you were the past decade or so, and don't be as bold as to try and come back anytime soon.

Hey Woz if Ritchie Hall is so great why did Calgary come out and say publicly that they were happy to see Etch leave the Riders and Hall takeover? I still think Woz is someone in the Rider management. Taman maybe?

The Woz said...

Hey XXX - if you don't like the numbers of words in my rare posts then don't read them...

As for your wrist I am sure it is sore from other activities.

To the Etch poster...how many Cups did the Riders win with Etch as DC? Thanks I thought so.

There is nothing wrong with Richie - it is just the whiners on here that every offseason have to find some scapegoat if we do not win the Cup. Their solution is to fire one or more people every offseason (or sooner if they could). In their world of sports turmoil the team would be in a constant state of flux with new GMs, HCs, Coordinators and players. You have no idea how to build a team and frankly you would have fit in well in the 80's and 90's when the Riders tried the "fire at will" philosophy when we missed playoffs for 11 years and had no home playoff games for twenty years - firing constantly does not work - stability ala Steelers and Patriots is the way to go. Have you notice that when the Eskimos in recent years got away from the stability of Hugh Campbell they have been mediocre at best?

Anyway keep whining - we have seven months to training camp and you are tired of kicking your dog by now.

Hey Woz how many points did the Etch defence allow combined in the 2 grey cups vs an awesome Als offence? If you think there is nothing wrong with Ritchie you must of been going to the bathroom or something on the many 2nd down and Balgonies converted against him over the years. Even if the Riders would of won the cup this year Hall would still need to go. Wake up Woz!

Hey Mike, Chamblin yes is a rookie head coach but didn't do a "fine job" IMO as there was numerous poor in-game decisions made throughout the year.
