hey I was trying for hope. People know my take on RR. I do honestly feel the trade was a wake up call for Ricky. What kind of pissed me off is I don't think he would've played as well here. I saw a differnt, much more competive RR in the last several games last year.

When does anybody ever remember Ray in a playoff game here scampering for a TD and doing a selly and spiking the ball down in the endzone? That was a little surreal. To put it mildly uncharacteristic. I don't know that I'd seen ray that pumped in a game in several years.

But I could be bat**** crazy.

That is what happens when you have crap GMs that can't build a team around him. He'd have been pumped here too if he had any chance to win. As pissed as I was about the trade, I am happy for Ray. It's good that he got out of that gong show. Plus, if he brings a couple more Grey Cups to TO, he'll go down as one of the CFL all-time greats, which is how I see him.

i said it at the time, and i stick by it: the ray trade will go down as (by far) the worst trade in eskimos history and one of, if not the, worst trades in CFL history

It was like a bad Edgar Allen Poe tale that defies mystery and imagination. Just beyond perchance the abyss of fleeting sleep or sleeting sheep. Quoth the crow that wakes me up no more..(poetic license)

It was like a bad Shakespearean tragicomidrama. With Ricky Ray as Macbeth with red hands mocking me.

I need a drink.

I never said the naysayers are wrong or that the optimists are right. Doing either before the end of the pre-season would be premature. Just because I'm hoping for the best it doesn't mean I'll get it.

I don't levy "doom and gloom" on the Eskimos. Even when the team is playing poorly I can comfortably buy my ticket and relax at the stadium or watch on TV. The Oilers however... the product is ridiculously overpriced, the athletes and executives get paid way too much money and the league is a joke. I can't cut them a single ounce of slack. Their product is insulting. Either win or GTFO.

So whats the spread on tonight's laugher?

21 points? I figure that's how much our offense will give up.

Really only tuning in for Reilly.He's in a Ricky Ray position this year. Not a lot of help or protection.

After Reilly, i'd like to see Crompton play more than Harris tonight. If i see Joseph on the field, im shutting it off.

TSN did their top 50 players thing. Three esks made the list

@cfl_esks: #Esks DB @Joe_Burnett19 is ranked #32 on TSN's #CFLTop50 list.
@cfl_esks: #Esks SB Fred Stamps ranked No.11 on TSN's #CFLTop50 list.
@cfl_esks: #Esks LB JC Sherritt is ranked #6 on the #CFLTop50 list.

Top three were Owens Ray and Lulay

Well, that should have been the first 7 points that our offence allowed. Bad call by the refs.

Our starters beat their starters. It's a nice start.

Reilly almost killed. Not such a nice finish.

That cut by White reminded me of 2002 John Avery.

It's just preseason but wow... bravo Coach Kavis. Way to waste a down to give your buddy Joseph a rep.

Wow Cary Koch had like 600 yards receiving and no touchdowns in 4 years of college, am I reading that right?

Pretty funny scene with Andrew Harris on the sideline.

Kavis Reed is conflicted right now. He soooooo wanted to give Kerry the back-up job.
