Hervey and the Eskimos are in trouble with the CFLPA now after Hervey's comments about Rottier.
The Edmonton Eskimos’ general manager took his team to task last Tuesday, putting all of his coaches and players on notice. The most pointed comments of the day were directed at offensive lineman Simeon Rottier.
“It wouldn’t bother me if he did not play another down this year,” Hervey said.
On Monday, the Canadian Football League Players’ Association came to the defence of Rottier, who did not play in Friday’s loss to the Calgary Stampeders.
“The CFL Players’ Association considers recent comments made by Edmonton Eskimos general manager Ed Hervey to be both inappropriate, and contrary to the collective bargaining agreement,” a press release posted on the players’s association site reads.
As TSN pointed out on Friday night, in singling out Rottier, Hervey is in violation of an often overlooked section of the CBA that prohibits such talk.
It just keeps getting better and better.
