Bottom line, this says that they disagreed with the Ray trade but backed their GM to see how the year went. It went badly. If you're going to take an 11-7 team and trade your starting QB, you better get results.
This is the consequence of likely one of the worse trades in CFL history (followed up by another crazy trade).
Like Ricky Ray or not, you don't hitch your wagon to Jyles and Joseph when you're fresh off a WC final. There's no reason other than ego.
Great post. Bang on.
