      No Vince Young or Terrell Owens either. Seems we're slacking when it comes to bringing in ex NFL guys who haven't played in years.

        Be interesting if that was the new regime's decision or that CKRM is in transition phase, as Rock pointed out in another thread. Because I assume is no Riderville coverage, because if there was it would be posted here, it definitely seems the new regime want to operate with much less fanfare and glitz.

        Not that I need to see twice daily highlights and/or interviews but at minimum I would have liked to hear or seen some of the names at the camp.

          Sucks that we donít know who went. I would have loved to hear some names even if they werenít former NFL standouts.

            I agree, and I am a bit football starved and would like to see who we have for contenders in the Terrance Nunn award

              Wow, I didnít even know anything was going on this weekend. I agree, would be nice to get a few tidbits.

                Exactly. Even names that went to familiar schools who had NFL tryouts or were practice roster guys.

                  Honest question here. Were FA try out camps well publicized in the past by Rider media?

                    Yep, and had tons of interviews and highlights. At least 15 minutes per day of it.

                        This is the kind of silence that people criticized Shivers about, amongst other things.

                          Mind you this was just try outs vs the full mini camps they used to put on and got the big coverage. IIRC the big coverage only started when the team started putting on those camps. I don't recall much try out camp info before then.

                            On that note, I thought I heard Ian Hamilton on the Greenzone Friday and they made it sound like he was working for CJME now. If he's not with the Riders anymore, I missed that.

                              There was an article focussing on Ryan yesterday. Basically he said he did alright but was a bit slow getting into form. He has been punting a pile of balls the past 8 months, but getting the rhythm with a snapper took a bit because of do8ng that solo

                              I imagine the "voice of the Riders" being in transition has limited the news to some degree
