Not attending to see training camp fodder. The Esks will shut it down as soon as they realize the riders are not serious about winning. Expecting many thir and fourth no name training camp cuts for regular season prices. You play to win the game said no rider coach ever. Payoffs? Playoffs? Playoffs?

Cue up the circus music. This should be good for a laugh.

Sad to see that the Blue Jays are out, but happy that I won't be the only one at the Rider game today.

Was going to the Rider game today but I thought I would see more action by sitting at home and watching the wife Knit.

First there was Glenn who got us little more than spare change in a trade; and subsequently showed what he can do when he occasionally rolls out. We saw what happened when he was forced to remain in the pocket like a sitting duck. Creativity, how novel. Then there was Messam who was said to be long in the teeth who must have wanted some of the money set aside for the Medicare program (six game IL), if he were to sign for 2016. We did recieve 2 unknowns in return for our MVP. Must have been something in his contract about being rewarded for being MVP. In the latest move we bench Brackenbridge who now is surely to sign elsewhere and haunt us; and get zippo in return. I guess they could have put all of them on the 6 game injury list as they did with others. For this, we are being asked to pay more to watch next year. Keep this up and we will have to move our games to Liebel field to ensure sell outs. I wonder if Austin has called yet to offer a cheeseburger for Durant? Where is John Herrera when you need him.

I totally agree with trying players who were on the practice roster! Why would some of you idiots not realize its a perfect time to see what they can do and replace them for next year if they don't preform. Winning the last 3 games just for the sake of winning is very stupid! Look what happened to the Toronto Leafs. They won a few games and wound up getting crappy draft picks. They would have been better off to try players from their farm club to try improve
