That's why we are willing to help these young players out. He's a second year player with not a lot of income, so we are giving him the same deal as our Ukrainian family. Showed up yesterday with a 2lb container of protein powder, a play book, and a large bag of laundry.

As far as inside info. He said AB is not practicing because we are trying to trade him. LOL



I can't imagine that to be true. He's not that expensive and is one of the top LB's in the entire league. We re-signed him to a new 2 year deal in late 2022.

Really? You did see the LOL.

What wasn't as clear was whether the player added the " lol " or you did. If the player suggested that without the " lol " it could have greater meaning. If you added it, that would suggest disbelief on your part as it is on my part.

I wasn't kidding. I took that Pigskin added the lol. If that's the case and a player had said that with a straight face, it would have some merit. What can be read misses the context of seeing what a person actually says and how he says it.

With the collection of Bombers in BC, no doubt they would be interested in him...  does he have a no trade clause in his deal?

Because he called out other players at practice.

Bad look for the Lions, IMO.

No kidding. Bombers hold out veterans with a coaching decision but you can tell those players want to practice rather than want to watch.

Disagree, you don't walk into a dressing room full of vets. and start making demands, he probably doesn't know half of their names nevermind the past injuries they've suffered.  It's up to the staff to determine who practices and who is best to rest, just as the Bombers do.  It sounds like he's either exhibiting signs of ego or venting personal frustration.

The impression in Vancouver was that some of the vets decided to coast rather than the coaches saying to coast ( take vet days ). Therein lies the difference.

You mean walk into a dressing room devoid of vets.  :D :D :D  That was the whole point.

Heres what Kongbo tweeted in reply to him not being a fit

?Not a fit? because I called out star players not showing up for practice, and guys not wanting to work out. Culture matters, it?s called pro football for a reason.
