CHRIS JONES TAKES CUP TO CORNBREAD FESTIVAL

TORONTO (April 19, 2016) – The 103rd Grey Cup winning head coach, Chris Jones will be bringing the Grey Cup to his hometown, South Pittsburg, Tennessee for the 20th National Cornbread Festival.

TSN’s Brian Williams will travel to South Pittsburg to capture the experience of Jones returning home as a Grey Cup Champion. CFL.ca will also be on the ground covering the Grey Cup from the National Cornbread Festival.

Chris Jones guided the Edmonton Eskimos to their 14th Championship last November in Winnipeg after defeating the Ottawa REDBLACKS, 26-20.

Since winning the Canadian Football League Championship, Chris Jones has transitioned to become the Saskatchewan Roughriders’ Vice President of Football Operations, General Manager and Head Coach.

Mr Jones should definitly bring the CFL Championship Grey Cup to regina so Riderville can get a real good look see to get the jist of what it feels like to be a champion.

I'm surprised the Schmos let it out of the city, as it probably won't be back for a couple decades with the hot mess going on there this offseason.

Rider Nation has been there and done that my friend .. 2013! Won't be long until the good times return starting with our 2016 season.

Yeah you guys have had the grey cup 4 times so lets talk about decades of not seeing it bud, also you are talking to a team(Eskimos) that is second I believe in most cups and from 2005 to 2015 have two cups just as you riders so get over it.

Lets see... SK in 4 Grey Cups winning 2 since 2007
Eskimo's in the basement 2007 until 2014 and then won in 2015
So what Eskimo fan has the right to say anything after a dismal 7 years of the last 10.

Who gives a Rats ass what happened back in your Grand Pappy's days.
The last 10 years is what matters and the Eskimos were total crap for a majority of those 10 years.

Jone's kids will look good in green and white, standing beside their Dad, holding the Grey Cup in 2016.

LOVE IT.

Ahhhh, the corn-pone festival.......a good time will be had by all. To the anonymous above who said "The last 10 years is what matters and the Eskimos were total crap for a majority of those 10 years." WRONG, WRONG, WRONG. What matters the most is TOTAL Grey Cups, and the Eskies have the Puffriders seriously outnumbered 14 to 4. If and when the Puffriders ever get to 14 Grey Cups (won't happen in this lifetime), then you can brag all you want.

Edmund in Edmonton

Okay and how about your riders from 1990 to 2006...16 years that is without a grey cup so think before you speak.

Also most of our roster from our grey cup is still here in Edmonton so can't wait to see Sewell/Willis knocking the piss out of durant

Nice try cuppycake.

The only piss knocking that will be happening is when the back up QB head coach of the EE fails miserably. Along with his BC Lions fired Coach. Jason Maas... Can you say Kavis Reed 2.0 There will be consequences! There has to be consequences! Oh man what a consequence I just pissed myself on the sidelines.

SCMOS sign 8 of their free agents and lose 11 free agents. That dosent sound like the same team coming back to me. Your defensive Linebackers have been decimated. Your O-line will be vastly different.
So nice try fruit cake

Only players lost to other cfl teams were foster and stafford. Grymes, McCoil and Jefferson could still easily be coming back so I wouldnt talk so fast and also we have a guy that was similar to grymes which is still playing and that is Konar and Lacey can take Jeffersons spot so really not sitting to bad. Other guys that left the esks who really cares. What stars are sitting for sask so good and dont mention Durant because he isnt worth talking about.

And they could easily follow their former coach to GREENER pastures when the Moes are a dumpster fire by the time the last NFL cuts happen, so I wouldn't talk so fast if I was you.

And who has Saskatchewan gained you ask? Capicotti, Lemon, Gainey, Foster, Brooks, Lawrence, Newman, Walter, Jones(the LB), Chiles, Steele, Jones (OL), King and Campbell(OL). All established CFL veterans with a nice mix of Allstars and Grey Cup champions.

Add them with Labatte, Knox Jr., Roosevelt, Bagg and some production from the rookie Free Agent haul and you have the making of the Green and White machine that is going to kick the Moes all around the park in 2016 and into the future.

And I didn't even have to mention Durant :-)

Common fellow Grey Cup Champion Esks Fans don't waste your time on these low life bottom feeder sliders and their CFL worst fans as they are constantly dipping into the koolaid ,would you expect any more from these fans who have spent the majority of their lives in the basement along with their last place riders ,the riders have spent more time in the basement than any other team in CFL ,and had to ring those phones in the 80s to save their pathetic franchise

But who's the loser. Your the one on a Rider blog AFTER you won the cup. I don't recall being on any Esks fan sites (maybe there isn't any).

Very sad. Much like most of Albertans personal finances and provincial finances. Very sad indeed.

Eskimos...you had the money, and bought everyone of those championships in the 70's $ 80's. No problem, good on you, the Riders and every other team would have done the same thing.

This is the closest traitor Jones will ever get to the cup now that he is the mayor of loserville get used to life in the basement Jones as the Esks are forming a dynasty after winning the cup in 2015/16/17 just like the old times Esks on top and Sliders in the basement just where they belong with their lowly CFL worst fans

I wonder what Miss CornBread Festival looks like.

Mike Rielly is a bandaid??? Durant has played a half of football in 2 years. lol

The only dynasty you will see in Edmonton is repeats of the 80s TV series while you are still waiting for your EI cheques.
