M B, "nothing against Corey Watman and we don't know what type of career he's going to have here. BUT BRETT JONES, is ABSOLUTELY FANTASTIC tonight! Fer the er U of R er uh grad, he's been FANTASTIC tonight for the Calgary Stampeders unda WOW! And I know a lot of people are upset the Riders didn't take Brett Jones. I'm almost wondering if Brett Jones maybe shoulda went first."
Wanna wind bag on and on about players catching or dropping the ball, breaking tackles etc.-- events within your comprehension-- SUPER! Burn some time and let the pro's take a half time leak... but, call out Hogs about things you have absolutely no clue... IT'S MEMO TO BOZO TIME.
Water don't like gettin' pushed uphill, much.... BUT.....
THIS IS AN ISSUE OF SOME GRAVITY.
The Bozo brigade, by virtue of holding microphones, have the power to influence Rider Nation's perception of what's what. They heard it on the radio.
Bozo's half time statements sow toxic seeds of discontent, yet again. Seeds, that will surely germinate, then grow to noxious weeds and create considerable kvetching in the vast prairie viewscape.
We call BULLSHIT!
Gonna rip the noxious sprouts right outta the fertile Saskatchewan glacial till-- NOW.
The statements are based on the fact Red Brett is a Saskatchewan guy and a former home town, Regina Ram; while Watman isn't. Watman played at E. Michigan. Because of personnel, the opportunity in the Stamp's camp is very different from the Rider situation.
Believe this, we're not talkin' kool-aid, spin or kissin' ANYONE'S ASS. This is about truth and setting the record straight.
Believe this, as well. Zero probability we have an agenda to curry favour or garner any media action. Debunking bullshit and highlighting Hog glory-- is where it's at.
The stone cold truth is-- Jones has potential. As it currently stands, Bozo's statements, in no way reflect the reality. The guys that surround him-- especially TSOUMPAS, make him look good-- right now. Put Jones in a different situation and a very different perception is most probable.
Is what it is.
Awesome that Jones seized the opportunity and he's hangin' in there. However, manufacturing dissent toward Watman, with Foghorn Leghorn media hype and fabrication is CHICKEN SHIT!
This snap is one example of many. Always, some good; and in this case, lots of bad. In this game, not an isolated nor an uncommon event. What game was Mitchel Blair watching?
Brings the validity of media assessment of both players and coaches into extreme question. Or has the question already been answered in the form of a sad yet tragic joke?
Stamps first possession, 2nd & 6. This was the long pass to West. If Tate didn't get exactly what he wanted thus getting the ball off quick, very good sack opportunity due to the middle of the pocket quickly collapsing.
High probability pass situation. Nice scheme. Riders get what they want with Red Brett required to single block Sholo.
Sholo lands it.
Sholo strikes the blow with great hand placement and leverage; BOOM #69's head snaps.
#69 gets trucked in a hurry.
Red #65 & #67 did tremendous jobs. Even so, if Tate needed a half second more, it's a high probability sack situation.
Would Watman have done better? Based on limited observation, we'll go on record, saying there is a high chance of yes.
Watman plays with more knee bend, is better with his hands and has a better punch. No doubt, due to his college background, training and level of competition. Maybe that's what Cortez was keen on? Outside of Rider Command Headquarters, none of us have access to the information or the considerations that to go into personnel decisions.
Only one snap, but serves as a reality tonic to overblown windbag hype. No need to show more examples and labor the point.
Again, Jones is doing really well. If he sticks with it, given the current situation, no telling how good he can become.
These highly trained, incredibly committed, extreme athlete-- CFL players-- lay their life's work and their bodies on the line with a focus and an intensity the Bozo media brigade couldn't comprehend in their wildest dreams. Coaches and management operate on a similar envelope.
To a man, they wholeheartedly and fanatically compete for the opportunity to enter, "The Great Football Meat Grinder".
In the end, they all get spit out. Some extruded as unrecognizable meat by-products-- spam, budget franks and the like. Some depart of their own volition-- jockey marked-- but neatly packaged prime cuts.
If they can't or don't get it done; or are no longer capable-- they're gone.
Bozo.... what're you still doin' here?
Oh, and Betty says, "while we're on it.... SHUT YER PIE HOLE ABOUT D.A."!
ROD BLACK UP NEXT IN THE BATTING ORDER.
