Nope. I said I'm not that excited about signing a backup. I'm not suggesting that anyone else shouldn't be excited.

You're making up sarcastic claptrap.

If you don't have quality back ups then a team is not going to be successful. Injuries will happen to every team.

Signing quality back ups IS something to be excited about.

Yet if someone gets hurt you will be the first to say we didnt sign a back up.

Ive see this show with you before.

That's the same bull that people often say. Not true 99% of the time, including this one.

I like Augustine, but no team is going to sign him as their starting RB. His choice was backup with us or backup with someone else. Likely not a hard guy to sign.

You want to get excited... great. You want everyone get as excited as you... grow up.

trigger warning

If you can't get it up for signing a back up that's your prerogative then I guess, even if the reasons for it being discussion-worthy are pretty clear I thought. You know the CFL very well so I am surprised you're thinking this way. Then again, it is a contrarian viewpoint so I guess I'm not actually surprised.

Getting it up is a pretty creepy way of putting it.

My excitement level is different for different levels of players. Difference makers, then starters, then rotation guys, then special teamers/backups. Age and injury issues also come into it.

Sorry, I meant a physical shop?  If he's running a physical store-front that employs staff and relies on customers walking in the door that's quite a commitment as opposed to being the sole employee working out of his home.  If his business is going well it could be one of the reasons he chose to re-sign with the Bombers rather than trying his luck elsewhere.

He does not have a physical shop.

He has a website and creates plan and offers physical training services.

Oh alright, I was just confused by Pigskin's comment above.

"Just stop in to JA27 Fitness this morning."

I don't know what the hell he means.  Cheesy

I think Augustine has all the tools to be starting tailback in this league. Sure, the sample size we saw is small but I liked what I saw from him this past season when he took over starting tailback duties. Strong N-S runner, agile, capable blocker, and good hands. He also seems to fit the mould of what this regime looks for in a player.

I think his ceiling has yet to be realized and I'm glad he'll be back here for 2020 and 2021.

No drought about it.
Still can't fix stupid. And you apparently can't quarantine, it either.

You can either go online or you can do a face to face. We meet once every 4 weeks and it's always at the same location which is a gym.
