Well a glorious season of football has come to a close and we now have 7 months to bask in the glory of being champions… and make many by the truckload of money selling ridiculous crap with a Rider logo and Grey Cup on it (who am I kidding, I’ll be buying it too).
But just because the offseason is upon us doesn’t mean things will be shutting down on the blog. As always I will keep things going year round to ensure you are up to date with the latest CFL news (or at least news that is still somewhat topical by the time I get around to writing about it) and the latest smart assed and irreverent commentary that pops into my mind. This offseason will be even more eventful than normal with the Ottawa Expansion Draft coming up in a few weeks. I will have full coverage including team by team previews of who will be protected and who will be drafted starting on Monday.
In two weeks’ time I will also be handing out the coveted 7th Annual Rider Prophet Awards. You will already have noticed that voting has opened for the Fans Choice Douchebag of the Year so be sure to let your voice be heard.
I will also keep you up to date on Free Agent signings and coaching changes. For example: Ed Hervey just hired Chris Jones as the new Head Coach of the Esks. Hervey says Jones is like him… which I assume means Jones will soon be publicly humiliating Simeon Rottier, get fined for tampering and say he’ll remove play calling from the OC only to not actually do so. Good times in Edmonton. Also, rumors have Winnipeg hiring Mike O’Shea as the new Head coach and bringing in Khari Jones as their OC. Lots more to come to fill up your dreary offseason days courtesy of the Prophet.
Besides we could all use a few months to get over our Grey Cup sized hangovers.
