Quote from: bluebeard on June 26, 2022, 07:34:57 PMAs far as I know, Rourke is making the basic low end entry salary. That is one reason BC could pick up and pay good players. Next season will be a different story and the Lions will have to pay him much more. Now the SMS will make keeping other high end players questionable.
Quote from: Throw Long Bannatyne on June 27, 2022, 02:48:37 PMRourke will earn much more on his next contract, instead of employing 4 high-end vet. receivers the Lions will have to drop back to 2 or 3 and find a couple of middle of the road possession receivers or rookies as replacements. Not a big deal and not unlike what every other CFL team faces on almost a yearly basis. A receiver like Wolitarsky could fit in well on almost any team and wouldn't be a liability. Speaking of which Petermann is currently listed on their roster as a backup to Cottoy.Rourke being Natl. also allows the Lions to employ 3 imports on the O-line which helps resolve a problem area they've had for many years.
Quote from: Pigskin on June 27, 2022, 08:48:50 PMI can see Rourke leaving BC to go to Edmonton. Home town boy loves playing in front of his family. Then there's the Jones factor.
Quote from: Blue In BC on June 27, 2022, 04:57:13 PMIf he continues to do well and hits free agency we could see the Elks make an offer he can't refuse. If they have a bad season and Arbuckle is a wash out they will need to find a better QB.
Quote from: Throw Long Bannatyne on June 27, 2022, 08:55:45 PMThat would be terrible for the league, but I wouldn't be surprised if it happened. The Elks already have 3 young QB's on the roster including Cornelius backing up Arbuckle, surely Jones can find a decent solution in house.

Quote from: PurpleReign on June 26, 2022, 01:24:07 PMI would cut his butt as a coach. You can't have inmates running the team. That was just ridiculous and he looked like a fool.
