Seems Bombers have released Chris Matthews.
Wonder what the back-story is there.

Sigh. Doing our best to not win the Grey Cup since 1990. Tongue

Might as well bring back Mike Kelly.  Cheesy

Maybe it's related to the bar incident last month, nothing much was said but maybe they were waiting for the investigation to be completed.  Doubt it's related to his play on the field as it has been improving.

Well if that turns out to be true I hope it also means D. Adams is coming off the 6 game IR this week.

Shocking.
He didn't perform like the original Chris Matthews.
Did not seem to have the fire during games.
I would have thought they would have tried to trade him.
What's even worse, if they did,... And there were no takers.
To divest yourself of an assert for nothing, speaks volumes.

He actually did not produce much.  However, taking such a name out of the line up, has to raise the eyebrows of Def. Coord across the league.

Wow!

Maybe he was coming off for Santiago?  Didn't like it? Speculation.

Having watched him in practice, I would say he looked to be the least "invested" of all the players.  Sometimes even seemed disinterested.  At first I thought he was easing back after injuries but it didn't seem to change.

Freeing up space to sign Mike Reilly? (Clearly not, just adding to the rumour and speculation poll)

Haha. Hopefully it does free up some SMS space but he probably got lots up front.

He just hasn't performed like the bombers needed him to. Lawler was playing better. Maybe someone the bombers like is getting cut from the NFL?

Not getting any easier to win the game this week for Streveler. As I mentioned, I hope Adams is available but if he's not then who is next man up?
