Let's be honest. They lost because they had atrocious QB play. A listless Trestman motivated them to play well two years ago (particularly down the stretch) and then win a grey cup.

Coaches win and lose rooms all the time. Trestman's players checked out around the halfway point of this season.

Could be, I'm not the biggest Trestman fan or anything, but he seems to win CFL championships when he has good quarterback play. Players may have given up but they tend to do that when they know there's virtually no chance of success. There aren't many coaches that can keep teams playing hard when facing that situation.

True enough. However, once that happens you gotta get a new coach to kick em in the butt and get them going again.

I think those rumours, and I still consider them unsubstantiated, surfaced in 2014 which was Hall's last year before getting the gate.  In 2013, Hall was running their defence.  They also had George Cortez running the offence, with Khari Jones as a dedicated QB coach.

I think Chamblin's descent started when he impressed himself with the Grey Cup win and took the defence over from Hall, and started dogging his players .  It escalated in 2015 to a really bad locker room situation. 

There were rumours back in 2013 out of Riderville that Chamblin wasn't pleased with Hall's approach. IIRC, they surfaced when the team was mired in a four-game skid.

Anyway, Taman should wear the brunt of that failure in 2014 and 2015, IMO. He basically bankrupted the roster to get a championship.

To be clear, I don't think Chamblin is a very good HC. He has a shelf life based on his coaching style.

He's a Grey Cup winner...but yeah...he definitely has a shelf life.

I don't think Taman considers it a failure.  He clearly, deliberately, and with intent, went all in to win a Grey Cup at home.  The Simon deal (where the second year had to be paid off as a front office job) and back-ending big dollar deals for guys like Dressler and Chick were the cornerstones of the strategy.  He knew all along the piper would have to be paid.

But even though Chamblin didn't have the same kind of roster to work with in 2014 and 2015, the way he managed that locker room and treated people was a travesty.  So, I agree that he would have a short shelf life as a HC.

People do learn from past experiences but because Chamblin has a big ego... I think that this will pass him by.

21 Hours ago - Argos interviewing Chamblin for head coach - TSN
19 Hours ago - Chamblin sits court side at Raptors game with Argos GM Jim Popp
3 Hours ago - Out of the running Bombers offensive coordinator Paul La Police - TSN/Naylor

IMO That means that PLAP was out of the running at least 21 hours ago and didn't get an offer from the Argos.



LAPO declined before an offer could be presented.

If we lose Lapo we must replace him with someone proven and decent

We don't need a project next year at coach

Coaches cap doesn't make it that easy. Not if you want an experienced DC

I honestly don't think this new cap will have much influence on the hiring of the main coordinators or the amount they are being paid, it's implementation will have more of an effect on periphery coaching positions and specialists.  What some teams accomplished with 16 will now have to be done with 10.

I think Lapo is in Wpg. next year. The guy I worry about is Jordan Younger now that Hamilton is on the hunt for a DC.

Great, LaPo just ran out of available destinations, onward and upward in B&G!

Interesting new twist.

"The Virginia native was under contract with the Stamps through the 2019 season, which means the Lions have to pay half of his salary to Calgary that counts against the Lions non-football cap."
