I quit reading on the first line when I saw that Kevin Glenn is starting. So much for the Bob Dyce/Jeromy O'Day tandem.

I know I was the same way how ridiculous to start Glenn!!What a gong show of season makes me sick how pathetic things have become.

How come everyoen only wants to sit Glenn to see how a young kid plays. Why not do the same to Chick and Dressler ? Isn't it the same thing ?

You guys are funny.

If you want to sit a vet, where do you put him? can't put him on the 1-game or 6-game without the player signing a waiver.

If you put them on the practice roster, they will get picked up.

It's a 46 man roster so not a lot of back-ups dressed.

Not the same thing. Chick and Dressler might have a future on this team. Glenn does not! That's the difference. Still if Dyce says I'm sitting Chick and Dressler to look at other guys, I'd have no problem with that either.

Do you really believe that Chick and Dressler, at their current salaries, have a future with the Riders ? Glenn may have a better chance of being with the Riders next year depending on how Durant's recovery is / isn't going.

raking leaves seems more important than wasting time on a "gong-show" season!
