Be nice to the Moes fans, they're unemployed,economy is circling the bowl and they have an NDP government. They need to grasp whatever fantasy they can.

Their football team is just like the state of their economy. Years ago the proud EE use to bring in QB's to the league. Now the have to trade or sign other teams QB's because they cant find their own.
! Grey Cup in the last 10 years and their fans think they are all that. Yet 2013 they were a 4 win team. It's the CFL were any team can bounce back from a horrible season and get to the Grey Cup. Hell Ottawa did last year too.

Not a bad move, in my opinion. He knows Maas and Reilly too. An experienced backup aka Kevin Glenn could be insurance.

Reeks of desperation from the Schmos. Much like there provincial and personal finances.

Wait till Bad Wall delivers his way over-due budget. Nobody goung to be happy in Saskatchewan and this coming from a p© member.

I'll take Wall over Nothead any day of the week and twice on Sunday. Sask deficit won't even be close to what they have in Alberta. And Wall will have a plan. Nothead,not so much...

And the Riders still have Smith as their backup.

To the last Anon comments about the budget... You are absolutely wrong. It's already been leaked to the media of what the budget contains. There are no cut backs and no added taxes. So SK is just fine and dandy. Alberta, gotta love that NDP

Typical sliders fans to run their mouths over a nothing signing by the Grey Cup Champion Eskimos ,this guy will be number 4 on our depth chart and is just signed as an extra arm for training camp .The sliders fans are so jealous of the champs and only wish they could be half as good as the true flagship franchise the Edmonton Eskimos as we have 14 cups to the lowly riders 4 in over 100 years .Sliders fans only support a winner are should be ashamed to have the worst fans and worst team in all of major sports ,ever recall the phone telethon in the 80s to save the franchise ya I do nice support ,sure you fans will say oh we sold out almost every game last year but those tickets were sold BEFORE the season started and weren't even close to sold out half way thru the season ,but will let the fans dream big year after year

This sad little needle d1ck seems kinda angry.
