And DD was not a big name guy...we just signed him from our neg list. Austin was also a recruit. The Riders haven't signed an established franchise type quarterback from another team since 1979 when Clements got signed and spent more time on his back than Nina Hartley.
          Nina Hartley sounds boring.

              We didn't even sign Clements. He was captive to a trade. We sent Stickman Dennis, another player and a draft pick to Ottawa for him before training camp in '79.

                I rather disagree. We continually see players take a discount to stay in place. That is a combination of liking the other players, buying into the system, liking the coaches and their relationship with them, liking the city, and liking the fans. I tend to think that system and coaches are the 2 biggest keys there, which is why we actually see some players follow staff to different teams.

                You can get used to a new city, unless you have a strong desire to stay small/big
                You will generally get to know new players and it will be fine
                Fans are fans. I suppose the degree of fishbowl is a bigger factor for some.

                  Ok even worse then. The Riders haven't signed an established franchise quarterback from another team since....ummmm...the beginning of the franchise? How did Glenn Dobbs get here? lol

                  That's really unbelievable if you think about it.
                  Waiting for the big ole splash...actually there was no big splash, just a peaceful ripple. Dammit, there was supposed to be a big ole splash!!

                    About the closest would be Hufnagel in '80 and that is stretching it.

                      • Wow. I never thought that Rhodes would ever get the boot. Well, the Esks just got better by subtraction, and that makes me sad.

                            How long is Ed signed for in BC? He may just dine and dash his way back to Edmonton after a year.

                              I guess it will be time for Sean Fleming.

                              Rhodes has been an issue for awhile.....should have been let go earlier.
