  • A PR move? Some people need to realize that Chris Jones left.

        Maybe that's why he doesn't play Aussie rules any more

            Little Dan did play in a couple of preseason games.

            And lol

                  The Riders signed Jon Ryan, but why?

                  Did the Riders really need an upgrade there though? Iím not saying this will keep them from improving the team in other areas, I just think what they had there was working.

                  While Josh Bartel doesnít have the overall leg strength that Ryan has, he was doing exactly what Craig Dickenson asked of him. Over the last two seasons, Bartel has been the master at pinning teams deep. He punted for precisely zero rouges last year. Systematically, Dickenson is far more concerned with placement than distance and Bartel has been very good at it. Bartelís average punt was basically four yards shorter than anyone else, head coach Craig Dickenson admitted this was by design. Bartel was also only called for an illegal punt once.

                  According to the CFL, Bartelís field position adjusted ranking was nine of 10 qualifying punters, but his offence did him little favours.

                  Dickenson also said recently that he felt Bartel didnít do a good enough job getting down field, and thatís fair enough, but to blame a few returns caused by missed tackles, on the punter seems like a bit much.

                  • I read that article too. I guess to each their own but I donít see how people canít think we upgraded, even if just slightly. all OíDay has done since heís been in the big chair is upgrade this team at several different spots. Defensively we are better, on the offensive line slightly better, we added a couple playmakers on offence. The QBing is the same, and thatís concerning, but almost every other area looks better on paper today than it did in November last year. Like I said, I guess people can have the opinion that it wasnít a necessary add, and maybe it wasnít a position of need, but any chance to improve is one you take IMO.

                    • Lost me when he said directional punting is not important in the nfl. I donít care if he has a favourite nfl team. Thatís a clueless comment, We really need a different Rider contributor to 3down. I am not looking for a cheerleader but want someone fair. With Davis and Gassen we are stuck with 2 negative nellies

                      • So at the bottom of the article they have "All eyes on Collaros", "Argos sign former Rider Crapigna", and "Argos sign former Rider JSJ".......I think we get the jist of where 3down is getting their hits from.

                          Pretty much confirmed the negative nelly position with his opening sentence:

                          I have a bit of a reputation at times when it comes to my coverage of the Saskatchewan Roughriders and Iím about to live up to it.

                          • Would another reason for signing him besides the upgrade be that he then doesn't sign with another CFL team when it's clear he wants to continue to play football for a while?

                                Its even better that 3Down's Rider podcast has Gasson and a John Fraser, a Bomber fan, and includes John Hodge as a guest from time to time. I stopped listening after that episode. Really the other CFL teams and their fans are much more respected on 3Down. Hodge is the Bomber's answer to Pedersen, an entertainer and not a journalist. Every other team has a fan's perspective, just not the Riders. It's almost like Edwards knows that angry Rider fans will click on more things than happy Rider fans.
