    But I think that's what CRF was referring to. Many have decided just to hate him and there is no turning back. Because if they actually watched Jones this past season, they would see he was a coach we can be proud of here in Saskatchewan. To be honest I don't think he is far removed from being a folksy rural type person...he just has a Tennessee accent.
    He does a smashing rendition of "Tainted Love" on the broomstick cello and had me in tears when he fluted out "moonlight sonata" on the moonshine jug one late evening on his front porch. He's artistically and spiritually deep, man.... not just a football genius. But for some, he'll always be known as the man who shot the Liberty Valence triplets... aka, Weston Dressler, John Chick and Durien Durant.

      Some will never get over that he was guy who dared cut Weston Dressler and besmirched Darian Durant.

          • It is of questionable merit to worry about opposing views. I have several specific criticisms within the context of supporting him at the current time. For me both are possible.

              Last time he tried that, he got accused of working out another team's neg list player...

                Lol. That is how he got into trouble with that Manziel debacle.

                    That would be A51. Lyle is the one that attracts bombers like homeless bums to planted pots, seems to pi** them off by his very existence, and has over the top fancy nicknames.

                      For some, it is not possible. That's what is sad about this.

                        Ah, dagnabbit... I guess I will have to hit the books and grey up on the history of RF crackpots...

                          Yes that's true,no doubt about that. It's funny because none of the haters actually mention that as a reason. I wonder why.

                            • I think the whole “Jones hate” thing has diminished greatly. In fact it just seems to be something several people strangely want to hold onto. Even many of the most critical of Jones, myself included, were actually calling and advocating for extensions. A far cry from a couple years ago. Jones doesn’t really have much for haters left IMO.

                                -I still don't like the guy
                                -he rubs me the wrong way.
                                -I can't stand that guy
                                -I'll never go to a game while he's in charge

                                Really insightful criticisms lol.
                                This made me laugh. Comments such as that, and the outrage over players being released because they were declining and/or had far too large of contracts.

                                The lack of understand of what CJ was trying to do at the time, no matter how unpopular, reminds me of Fredo Corleone saying to Michael Corleone in "The Godfather II"...............

                                Mike, you don't come to Las Vegas and talk to a man like Moe Greene like that!
