Well I suppose on how you look at it. He's the best or 2nd best at the role he provides in the kicking game as LS.

LS is a critical role. So I wouldn't really hesitate to consider his specialist role as a top Canadian.

I wouldn't. LS is like kicker, extremely important but not one that will ever get the player consideration as a top NAT.

I just don't view it as a "top Canadian" position because the differential between long snappers isnt too far, at least to us fans or anyone who isnt a kicker, punter or holder

A couple of snaps over the punters head might have you thinking differently. One mistake on a FG attempt, convert attempt can cost you a game.

Anyway, I understand both points of view. Not a big deal or argument.

If you say that Rempel is the best NAT in the league at his position, you would be totally correct. If you said Rempel is one of the best NATs in the league at any position you would be, understandably, laughed at.

I didn't say that. I said he was the best at his position or at worst 2nd best LS in the CFL.

Aards had stated he was one of the best NATs in the league period.

He also said Thomas was a must sign national.

Really?  I did?  Pretty sure that was you're interpretation.  IIRC, we were discussing which nats we had that were the best in the league.  I listed our starters that were best at thier position in comparison to other team's starters...

But sure, twist it how you like.  No matter how much of an idiot you think I am, you can't seriously think I would rate Remple in the same league as a Sinopoli, or a Singleton...  pretty sure "period" was not in the discussion.

I don't think you're an idiot, I just think you over value current Bomber players and management's worth based on emotion. I apologize if I could not get your true meaning based on the words that you wrote.

So they liked him enough to resign him to replace Carter if Carter can't cross the border ?
