Coombs is unnecessary. All he does is lessen the chances we ever see what Simonise and Petermann can do

You hate to see injuries happen but it sure would be helpful for those two if a few starters missed a game or three.

Would also give us a good idea of what we have considering Wolitarsky is in a contract year, and who knows how much Demski is making and if he is worth the price

I think Simonese just bought his own ticket out of town.

I missed a bunch of the game. What happened? Cuz imo he is a talented young Canadian. We don't want him to be the next Demski

I think Petermann has nothing to worry about.

Well from my count, he dropped 3 fairly catchable balls and caught none.

Oof. I still think he can pull it off. He needs coaching but I mean this is his make or break year. To be fair everyone seemed to have dropped a ball except Walker and Petermann for the backups.

Simonese has had a full year of coaching. This is it, you either make the catches in the game or you can't.

I'd keep him and be patient. He just turned 24 and nationals are afforded more time. Hasn't had the world's best camp or pre-season but he's been healthy and isn't far off.

Not against that but his salary might come into play depending on what it is. That's the tough part of having to pay more than ELC's for higher draft choices and needing to wait 1+ years.

CFL minimum this year is 54K. In 2017, Ekakatie made 88K as the first overall pick (not including incentives which I imagine he didn't hit). That's a difference of 34K. However, Simonise didn't go first overall, he went 12th (3rd pick of the 2nd round). His premium would be far lower, likely, somewhere around 65-70K. If there's a better player/prospect that beats him out of a roster spot that's one thing but the SMS hit shouldn't really be a factor. I personally think he's still a blue chip prospect.

He was a second rounder so probably not too bad

Simonise has this year to prove himself then he's cut. We need 2 backup CDN recs, him  and peterman. Peterman is clear #3, Simonise fills a diff role than all the other CDNS he aint going anywhere. Shrot maybe on PR but aside from 1 catch in preseason game 1 IDK. Guarentee Simonise makes the roster this year.

I doubt Simonise is is any sort of danger as a fairly highly-touted Canadian prospect with a lot of physical talent... those players are given time to develop... I think he has this year still before he's in any trouble. Having said that, pretty sure we'd be over the moon if Simonise is ever nearly as productive as Demski.
