    Montreal is a gong show. I can't see players willing to go there until management changes, or silly money is involved, or there are no more dance partners. IMO, Montreal are the '90s Riders.

      Lots of noise out there about the Lions targeting every big named free agent out there.

      Just how much is the cap going up and why is it that Ed gets away with this?

        Other teams do it.

          I think Reilly and Johnson end up there

            why on earth would WD sign a one day deal with the riders ? the team that kicked him to the curb ?

                Well we saw what happened in 2014 when we had over a million dollars tied up in three players, Durant, Dressler and Chick.

                    He's a bomber now and has been for a number of years he is not signing a one day deal to retire a rider . ever

                    He is still a productive player and knows how to get open someone will sign him

                      You need a Farhan says to clear it all up for you.

                        IMWT says that he has been wrong many times lately. Should we trust a Farhan says...?

                            If he is done why would you waste 125,000 on him?

                              It's hard to lock someone up who doesn't want to be locked up.

                                Gets away with what? He hasn't signed anyone. Just because the Lions are interested in 10 players it doesn't mean they will sign them all. It's like a wish list. But just like at Christmas time, you make choices based on what you can afford and what is available. Once you sign x player, another player or two falls off your list.

                                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!!
