It's pretty much been that way from day one. Most know you don't trade a 1st rounder for a kicker, let along one who doesn't do what you think he does and one who isn't even playing.

What are the odds of having 2 consecutive bad GM's?

This makes 2 stupid GM moves on kickers. The first being drafting Warren Keene in the 1st round.

Both GM's hung around too long and DM in particular should have been fired instead he was promoted.

aw that sucks, i love bertrand... just a solid guy who gave his all and understood the game at a level that most players don't (likely due to his QBing in university)... that sucks, hopefully he gets picked up by somebody... i don't really understand the move myself, are we so awash in canadians?

Like I said on the last page Bertrand seemed to have a hard time staying healthy over the past several years.

Why is it a sad day? I mean, I like the guy, but he's been injured more than healthy the last few years. I think he should take his remaining health and move on in the world, and I wish him luck in that.

Yes, you understand it correctly. You didn't think another GM was going to be drunk or stupid enough to give us a 1st back, did you?

He's the longest-serving Esks player. Injured or not, you don't think it's sad that he's released? I would have preferred if he had retired.

I loved they guy, but I understand letting him go. he missed a lot of games due to injury, and when he did play, he was never close to 100%.
gotta find a healthier player.
I understand what moneyguy is saying about being sad about it. one of those movesyou have to do, but don't want to..

Not really. I find it sad when a kid gets cancer, or someone is killed in an auto accident. Some guys need to be nudged out the door, unfortunately. Don't mean to sound harsh, but it's a business. I want the best possible team out there this year, and the Eskimos owe to the fans to provide that. If it means making some tough decisions, so be it. He'll be fine.

The CFL fines the #Esks 10,000 for tampering in connection with signing free agent Odell Willis. Curious how they obtained evidence.
Hm. Interesting.

Hey now, some of us used that concert as an excuse to continue drinking after the game was over. There are some positives.

Any STHs in here? Looking for opinins on the whole experience. Does the package include ETS? Is there still early access to the locker room sale? Can you use unused tickets at a late-season game? Any pre-sale access to Commonwealth concerts? Any other perks in being a STH?

I ask because I can usually get freebies to 3 games per year, but it'd be nice to support the team.

Any tickets for Esks games are good for park and ride or whatever ETS you want to use on gameday.

Pretty sure you still get special access to the locker room sale.

Afaik you cannot use unused tickets for different games.

What a weak penalty for tampering.

Eskimos are laughing. If you really want to make them think twice about it, take away some draft picks or even the player.

The league can't hurt them any worse than Tillman already did. 1st and a 4th for a kicker.......Hahaha!!

maybe next time they won't announce a FA signing 240 seconds in. Either way I don't really care and I don't think the team does either. Rider fans are probably having a field day though

Free agency is a joke, everyone knows this happens in most sports. The bigger joke is giving a fine that is probably what 3% of the total contract? Next year I'd tamper like no ones business, what they going to do double it to 20k?

Every team in the CFL tampers. Book it. The Esks got caught. Ha, that's what happens when you file a contract within minutes of the opening of free agency. Smarten up, Swerve.

I haven't looked, but I wonder if they're up to 10 pages yet on some thread blasting the Esks and the league for the tampering and the weak penalty.

Clearly, there is very little to do in Gopherville.

Been a season ticket holder for @ 15 years but I'm burnt out by all the losing so you can have mine for this season!

Yes park and ride and LRT are free for any ticket holder, not just season seats.
Yes for the locker room.
Unused tickets can be used at one of the late season games but it's a specific game might be the last one of the season.
You get a 10% discount for being a season ticket holder at some of the sports merchandise shops around town, cant remember exactly which ones.

Here's what they say at the Esks.com site

"Season seat perks
savings on individual game tickets
10% discount on merchandise at the Eskimo Fan Shop
exclusive access to Grey Cup presales and events at Commonwealth Stadium
"
