Incredible signings! Add Capicciotti to the mix and the Riders are back to Chamionship form. A Canadian replacement for John Chick - incredible. Shawn Lemon and Capicciotti - another great duo.

Jones and Murphy are just getting the leftovers that other teams do not want.

Too bad - we could have done so much better.

Why are you and others so happy to settle for the leftovers that no one else wants.

Get Real

Keep in mind the negative post on everyone of these signings is the Homeless EE fan. He cant find his own EE blogs so he has to pretend he's a Rider fan.

Foster listed here as 6'4 - 212 whereas 620CKRM.com has him at "6 foot, 205 pound". I won't quibble about the weight, but what gives with the height (er, hype)????

CFLPA has Foster at 6' 2" while the KC Chiefs had him at 6' 0"... So who knows how tall he is...
