    Even if they lose Reilly, if they don't have a winning season, I suspect someone will take the bullet. I don't think they can afford to clean house, so I'd rather retain the coaching staff vs the management if it comes to that.
    Maas re-upped the past season, correct? So, he's under contract at least through 2020?

      Yeas and no. I was told when Sunderland interviewed in 2015 his coach of choice to bring with him was Maas.

        Both Sunderland & Maas were extended through 2020, so yeah, it may be tough to clean house if the new Pres feels that is what is needed. It may need to be a partial house cleaning if things really go sideways.

          I think I have faith in the coaching staff, provided Maas continues to move on from some very silly mistakes/decisions (fingers crossed, lol)
          As you point out, not the perfect scenario, but the new SMS creates challenges when changes are needed. I just think a bad GM could do more long term damage in one year.

            I don't know. Kavis is doing a bang up job screwing the Als, but if he got tossed tomorrow, they would be okay in 2 ish years. Lots of turnover in the league, and as long as Montreal has draft picks (not many right now) then they could make deals.

              lol... I guess I've seen what a bad GM did to the Oilers and I'm just expecting worst case scenario.

                Hockey is a bit different where you don't have as much player movement and even minor decisions have ripples for years. And guarentteed contracts.

                IMO, in the CFL a GM can make a ton of mistakes and it doesn't have to kill the team. We had the matador Mertile out there doing his best not to touch a player and we survived. Except if you piss off your franchise QB and he leaves. That one is harder to fix.

                  It is fun watching the city that turned the Oilers into an old boys club pushing so hard to make the Esks front office into another old boys club. The only saving grace for the Esks is that in a small league with a lot of movement, a decent chunk of people will be former Esks.

                    Well, I will say that Sunderland has addressed most of what I thought was a weakness in Edmonton (Dean/Santos Knox/Harris/Ellingson/Rogers).
