    Best punter in Rider history by a long shot.
    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!!

    • I look forward to seeing some high hanging punts this year, it's been a while.

        Yet the year before we were airing it out.

            Maybe he was asked to do it because of a limit in his ability. Like they could get him to punt normal but maybe he takes too long to get it off, or not enough hangtime or something. So they come up with a plan to make him kick 'poorly'.

              As well, I've seen punters that were "lights out" for distance and hang time in practice. When you lined up 12 guys who effectively wanted to kill them, the ball was all over the field.

                Didn't we have a punter that would placekick anything over the 40, or something goofy

                  Many practice goers, including myself, reported that Bartel hit high spirals in practice on a regular basis.

                  In 2014 when the Riders acquired wasn't he coming off an eastern all star season.

                  But he's gone and I am sure Jon Ryan's instructions will be quite different.

                    That coconut in 2015. There was that game in 2015 against Calgary amidst Chuckles meltdowns where he had the guy try a 65 yarder that yielded a miss and big return leading to a last play of the half hail Mary.

                      Ya they are actually younger than I thought. Look at the roster Ike. On defence there are 4 guys over 30, Micah, Solly, and Crezdon, and Charleston. we have lots of young depth all over this roster. saying we are old is just not correct at all. On offence we are very young at receiver, couple young running backs. Perfect mix on the o-line of vets and younger guys. Anyone who says they are old is just clueless and looking for something to bitch about. like who frigging cares if we got older at punter.

                          That one gets a "Like" from me!

                              More than just great PR, while we spent a bit more cash, ODay upgraded another position from last year. Solid move by the Riders, I wont be surprised if hes an all star this season.

                                less a surprise, and more of an expectation given his ability and price.
