Good Stuff - I also got into Bomber Football in a big way as a former Bomber (Bill Frank) introduce my wife to me. And that can only tell you how long I have been married as I doubt there are many on this forum who know who Bill Frank was (he actually worked partime for my father-in-law)  Cheesy

I remember Bill Frank.

That's what we said to Rene Parades. Then Calgary signed him and worked with him.

I went to training camp almost daily the year Parades was here and the fact is that he got beat out pretty cleanly by Palardy. You could see he had potential, too much to stick on the practice squad. So Calgary picked him up and it worked out but at the time NO ONE would have bet the farm on it. In fact, his first couple games were pretty shaky and he finished the year kicking 77.8 %

Just really tired of the Parades name coming up every time we miss one. But yes, your point of working with talent is correct Sir.

This. Or even Hajrullahu after his rocky sophomore season, who's also gone on to have a pretty solid career.

Liegghio had a rough night on Thursday but one lousy game doesn't justify kicking him to the curb (no pun intended). It's unfortunate he shanked the potential game winner but the fact the team was even in that position late in what should've been a convincing home win falls at the feet of more than one player.

I won't make excuses for his two misses but there's plenty of blame to go around for that loss, IMO.

I am sticking with the kid for now. Young players take a little time to grow and settle into there position. How many people where done with BO20 a few weeks ago?

No one is criticizing his punting or kickoff ability, he can keep that job.  It is F.G.'s and converts he is struggling with because of the added mental pressure of altering the outcome of the entire game with one poorly executed kick.  If you can't take the heat, don't sign up for that job.

Hmmmm... first game of the season, :27 left, Liegghio makes a 25 yard FG to win the game...  I guess it wasn't as hot that night...

In all 3 pyramiding calls the player had his hands on other players and arms were in a position that could be construed as giving a boost.  I think in only the 1st case did the player actually get a boost.  But the perception of a possible boost was there.  Hence the pyramiding.

I'm perfectly find with the call.  It's easily avoidable.  Put your arms up above you, not down on the players.  After all, you're trying to block a kick.

We've seen some great hurdling kick-blocks in past seasons and in those cases the player did not put hands on the lower players.

This is simple football guys.  It's like the goal line stand O/S.  Inexcusable.

Does someone have a list of the 3 pyramiding offenders we can correlate to years-in-CFL?  I wonder if this is all relative newbies.

As for the refs having a love-on for these pyramid calls: maybe the CFL ref association just did a seminar on pyramiding as the topic-de-jour 2 weeks ago.  Maybe they've been told to look out for it and call it strictly.  I'm pretty sure it was at least 2 different refs throwing the 3 flags...

In any event, I doubt we see a player commit this again this season.  The message has been received.


So, I guess they need to make it "Attempted Pyramiding"...  sort of like "Attempted Murder", guilty even if you don't succeed...

I'd certainly be happy if they gave Mourtada another shot, the myth that he was terrible F.G. kicker is overblown, his technique is solid and he never shanked or under kicked a ball like Leggs has.  His aim was slightly off by a few feet and that was without any CFL experience and before they moved the hashmarks closer to the center of the field.  I don't believe there was any real competition in T.C. for the FGK position, Leggs won all 3 jobs based on his passport, Mourtada was retained as backup because he agreed to sit on the PR and wait his turn.  His patience may be rewarded if Leggs has another shaky performance.

Mourtada was 8 of 15 on FG attempts so I wouldn't say it was over blown?  He was also 11 of 12 on converts and only played 5 games.

He's a kicker so I don't buy the no CFL experience as an excuse. He really has no pro experience at all.

Has he improved? Maybe.

Alexander wouldn't need to come back as a starter after one week of practice. He could come back and be the back up and see some lighter duty in rotation. All of that if he's healthy but not game ready. Aside from that game 11 or 12 might be more realistic. Some of that might revolve on how the team feels Hallett is doing starting and how Parker is viewed as the extra DB. I don't know that Alexander automatically becomes the starter when he gets activated.  Nothing to do with him not be the better safety. Just about game readiness after such a long time.

Wilson did appear to be an achilles but the severity hasn't been reported. I never heard anything about surgery needed to repair. Realistically I felt he would be lost for the season.

Couture could be a candidate and when he's activated it may start more as a back up / rotation for a game?

Thompson injury hasn't been talked about much. He may be back before Alexander which would give Alexander more time. No idea what his injury or time frame will be. He could be out much longer.

No idea if Richmond or Hallett on the 6 game will ever be healthy in 2022 since those injuries are carry overs from 2021.
