I know, unfortunately. The only possible option I see is to offer him more $$$ for 1 year, and he can then re-evaluate his options after that year, and probably would ve became the head-coach.
Would he have accepted , no idea. Maybe he just went after his first head coach option that presented itself. Just sux that we couldnt retain him

Definately more money to be made and it's much more pretigious. Pretty sure we can't compete with what the Bears offered him.

More yards in those two plays for AC than in the whole game so far. Just unbelievable.

Love the booing, ridiculous to kick a FG there. Go for it. Kicking the FG means we're down 19 with 8 minutes left = miracle still needed.

You can see why Trestman didn't use him last year. He's awful. Won't be pretty next week in Regina if he's still around to return kicks.

Selfish old man Calvillo. Guy is good person but he is zero on team spirit or teamplay, guy just doesn't care about his teammates and try to teach the young ones.

I am not trolling here. Rider fan coming in peace.

Anthony Calvillo needs to retire. He is tainting the legacy right now. Not so much by his play and the team's, but by how he is shouldering NO BLAME for the disaster of a season the Al's are having. His body language towards the coaching staff and teammates is embarrassing. He is acting like a spoiled child, and it shows just how good Trestman really was in elevating AC to what will be a hall of fame career. Hawkins was in over his head, but the AL's seem to be in denial that THEY chose him to be the successor to Trestman. Popp needs to admit he was largely to blame for such a miscast of a hire. Popp, Hawkins, and the team needed to find a better balance in maintaining the foundations of the Trestman scheme/program, but also allowing for Hawkins and his staff to bring in new ideas. Veteran teams resist change at the best of times, but Popp should have evaluated his hire better before things went south so quickly. If he wanted consistency from Trestman's tenure then why was an internal staff hire not considered more seriously? A guy with a spotty coaching history with no CFL experience (let alone the majority of his staff) was risky at best.

I really do not see this team seriously contending this season, and AC along with the brass might be best served to swallow their pride and come to grips with the fact that Trestman is not coming back....

We'll miss the play-offs, now getting rid of Calvillo and building for next year is the only thing that we can do this season.

Troy Smith really is a great quarterback, still can't believe he didn't make it in the NFL.

The few games and pre season games he played he did pretty good.

Now if Anthony would sign with the Bears and we could at least start somewhat of a rebuild right now, that would be perfect.

Normally I'd be hoping for a win, but I just hope we're not embarrassed out there today. Saskatchewan has impressive stats this year and they'd be hard to handle even on our best days.

I hate to see Calvillo get hurt but maybe that's what this team needs. We're hanging in there, and actually should be ahead if that pass to SJ was on the money.

The face bagg made is the look that he knows that he might not play the game he loves ever or for a long time. It sucks because it was such a feel good story he got through this year.
