Title: SJ Green signs with Tampa
Post by: theaardvark on February 10, 2020, 05:19:54 PM
No, not that Tampa...  the Vipers, who SJ has been volunteer coaching for.  Apparently, no one was interested enough to make an offer he couldn't refuse...

Trestman really needed help with the Red Zone, SJ would be a great fit.  Big loss for the CFL, but good on him.

Familiarity with the HC, playing the game he loves in his hometown, a chance to make some cash in the now... Not a shocking development, especially when you factor in his age.

Could be a transitionary type of thing, too. Perhaps he sees himself as a coach down the road.

Did he actually sign with a team already? I herd that teams are eligible to sign him according to a waiver wire system. He doesn't get to choose who to sign with.

Also he will be able to play in the CFL when the XFL season is over and possibly not miss any games.

OK, I guess there is a waiver thingy, but I'm sure there is no tampering in a league where there is one owner...


Matthew Scianitti@TSNScianitti

Longtime 10K yard #CFL receiver SJ Green will sign with the XFL today. Green signs deal with XFL primary ownernship group and will enter the league waiver wire where his rights will be picked-up by a team at the top of the wire. SJ Green's deal will run through May 31 2020 #XFL


They'd be dumb not to let him go to the Vipers...

He might still come back to the CFL, the contract ends before June 1...

The XFL will be as fake as the WWE. Refs will be biased and let certain teams win. CFL refs will be perfect down there.

Wow have some respect.  That comment about CFL refs is uncalled for.

Hope not. When these leagues fold, lots of hardworking people lose their jobs.

If you actually tunes into the game(s), you'd know both the refs and the command centre are live mic'd....no chance for collusion.

When does XFL start up anyhow?  I want to look for it on TV and catch a few games.  I had fun watching the AAF while it lasted.

Started last Sunday.  TSN carries the games on Sunday afternoon/evening.

I tried watching it on Sunday and it was not a style of football that I care for. That being said, it was better than the AAF. I really don't see it maintaining traction though. Probably won't be as quick a demise as the AAF. I enjoyed seeing some former Bombers like Philip Nelson, and LDW.

Cool, thanks!  Got the PVR queued up now.  Looks like the TSNs and Fox and WDAZ all have some games.  Not to bring up XFL in the CFL side of the forum, of course... any more discussion should go in Offside I think.  My bad!

LDW?  Cool.  Nice to see him have a job again.  Paging 66, paging 66...

This is probably the most ignorant post I?ve ever read. There?s nothing fake about the league, try watching the games before commenting. There was nothing fake in any of the 4 games I watched last weekend.

And as for refs favouring teams, in any league, dream on Chet. There?s instant replay on every play, challenges and an evaluation committee that evaluates and documents every refs performance in every game. Such a comment is beyond ridiculous and 100% baseless trolling.

As usual, ya need. Good QBs. Trestman doesn't have one.
CFL pass I rules and. Replay are the best.  All leagues should. Go to one foot needed for inbounds, and defensive force out should be a awardeda catch, if normally( without contact) the guy would have. Come down in bounds.

My point is, people pay to watch offence..   Same with the NHL off-side rule. The league needs to encourage. Goals, not call them back.  If then skater " is above the blue line" he. Should be. on side. Secondly the blue line should be considered in the Zone.( like. The goal-line in football , is "in"the end zone.)
Go Offence. Go
