Good to see Chevy find another home in the CFL. Sad that it probably means we won't see him as a guest teacher at the kids' gym class anymore. Good luck in Regina, Randy!

Excellent signing! Bring in a veteran leader to help the young talent out. Also, Chevy has mad skills! Jones is a guru!!!

Anonymous, Our long snapper, MacDonald, is injured and on the 1 game injury list. Chevrier is a quality long snapper who can fill in for 1-3 games as needed. Probably no one better on short notice.

I don't see a problem, he looks pretty darn fit to me. A veteran long snapper can only help.

Hearing Chevrier saying such good things about being a rider when he used to be pretty negative on the team on his Fan960 show is funny. I know he used to give it to kids too if they wore Rider gear when he was teaching.

What circus. It was over a couple months ago. Having issues with the rookie snapping so get someone to try out

I think this is a terrible signing. We have a very keen long snapper in our community who is a 2015 vanier cup champion. Yianni Cabalis is 25 years old and would give his heart and soul to this team if given an opportunity. This reminds me of the Jamal Richardson signing under Chamblin. This rider organization has made so many positive acquisitions and has earned so much respect in a difficult transition year but i think that the Riders are missing a great player in their own back yard.
