So everyone should blow the cap?  Just pay the fine? To what effect?

I was just coming here to comment about it.  TSN should NOT ever allow him to cover a game after this.  Obvious bias is obvious but blatantly calling for his favourite team to break the rules to win.  Ridiculous.

Unprofessional and he should be let go. Imagine Aikman or Romo advocating for the Cowboys to do this.

We all know Suit's is a homer. Must have killed him to watch the Bombers walk into Regina, not once but twice and beat them in the playoffs. Then there's the big come back victory this year and back to back Grey Cups. Neither of which we had to cheat to win. So if you have to cheat to win in Glen's eye's that's okay as long as it's the Riders??

Suitor is a Rider homer, he should be fired, then maybe he can get his dream job on the Rider radio channel during their games where he can sing their praises all game long, and be loved by the Banjo pickers.

This is seriously no big deal.  He?s only saying what he would do in O?Days place, if he were in it.  Everyone knows that is exactly what Taman did, and you could literally see the same thing posted here weekly when we were trying to break the drought.

I don?t think stating the obvious affects his colour commentary on games.  For goodness sakes, we?ve had Lapo, Benevides, Barker and Duane Forde all doing broadcasting while they have been angling for GM or HC jobs.  That?s way less transparent.

The cap is a very big deal. For league survival, there is none bigger.

This is not a fan making this statement.  It was a former player that is a main commentator on the national tv contract.  Inexcusable.

Maybe he is shedding light on the Riders exploitative habits.

I understand what he?s saying?if you?re ever going to load up on FA, now the time since you?re hosting s grey cup. Suggesting they pay a little fine is advocating they break the rules and is irresponsible at best. Disappointed in Suits as he?s a huge league fan but what he said was wrong.

They went over the cap the last time they won on home soil so I suppose the playbook is out there.

Suitor is just catering to his base. The green homers in SK will lap it up while simultaneously ragging on other franchises who have done the same.

This is poor form by Suitor, even if it's not unexpected. His inability to be objective and impartial deters from his colour commentary on TSN, IMO.

So, Milt should be fired for homerism too?

I see nothing wrong with his statement.  Using the rules, and the allowed overage / fines to help secure an appearance in teh GC at home (and make HUGE bank that will easily pay the fines) is just good business, and solid use of the rules. 

The rules are there, you can choose to pay fines or not pay fines as you see fit. 

Homerism is part of the CFL, sorry.  And it is not like he's hiding his bias... again, like Milt...
