    Shenanigans or making the hard choices that needed to be made? I was among the many here that was shocked and angered at the way things went down when Jones came here, I was also thrilled we landed him, Dressler was the only player of those 3 that had continued success after being released, Chick started to fall off within a year and DD wasnít even moderately successful.
    Im a huge fan of DD and came to understand the right choice was made.
    Rielly got his grey cup ring with Jones, why wouldnít he want more of that along with a decent payday?
    you are obviously not the president of the Chris Jones fan club but maybe you could expand a bit on your statement?
    I wouldn't say Dressler had continued success.
    He has been injured a lot and is no longer anywhere near a 200k receiver.

      Me either and yes thatís true Reilly might command that , well maybe 600 but still it would be hard to build a dominate team around him , hell maybe he would take less to win a Cup here?? Ya right ! Haha

          Man the hate for Jones and ridiculousness of some is never-ending here.
          Pretty sure the poster youíre quoting is trolling.

          I agree with your point though, Reillyís relarionship with Jones and most of our current staff will factor into his decision not things that happened years ago relating to different players that Reillyís never played with.

          At the end of the day I believe their prior relationship, and our likely willingness to pay him top dollar, is why we do have a chip in this poker game.

            I'm saying he signs with us. He's only got 1 Grey Cup. He got that with Jones. If he joins any other team he is a contender. If he joins the Riders, with our de, he automatically is on the favourite. He's not getting any younger. How many years does he want to waste in Edmonton with Maas.
            Likely the big sell is can he convince his wife.

                The team that benefitted the most from CJ's cuts, why else would he advocate for this

                  Yup. People have pined for an elite QB for years and if you get a chance at one, you have to pony up. 600K, gulp, but yup. With a guy like Reilly, we go from solid to a juggernaut.

                  800K? He's not Rocket Ismail.

                    If the SMS goes up by 5% even the 800K is achievable

                        Dressler, Chick and Durant remember, other players donít care at all. I know pot is legal now, but maybe you should take a break for a couple of days!

                            There are also other factors besides money. Being close to family is one. My oldest son still makes good money, but took a job paying about 25% less so he could be around home and his family more. We do not know what Reilly thinks about the amount of time he gets to spend with his family.

                              Yes of course there are factors other than money. Jones cutting Dressler and Chick and the Durant divorce arenít factors.

                                Just not a fan of the way Chris Jones conducts business at times. I feel it can be detrimental to the Riders, long-term.
