Quote from: TecnoGenius on February 12, 2024, 10:23:01 PMI'm 4 games in to my rewatch of 2023, and I wanted to note that Haba actually was looking good and making plays. I had forgotten about that as he was getting dissed later in the season when we all wanted Jeffcoat back and comparing the DL with/without Jeffcoat.I'm not sure Haba will ever be a Jeffcoat, but maybe we'll get lucky and he'll be good enough to still allow Willie to do his thing?Also lost in all of this Hansen: maybe he becomes a bit more critical in FA at this juncture? He didn't do squat after his return in 2023, but he may have still been recovering. If he still gets a bigger-than-normal-GLOB salary in '24, perhaps we simply can't afford it? Still, it's nice to use up a free-bingo GLOB spot at a position we'll be struggling at (DE).Ignoring our DE desperation for a moment, for my money I'm keeping/dressing Maruo over Hansen. What we do a P will determine our options on the 2nd GLOB.
Quote from: Blue In BC on February 12, 2024, 10:30:30 PMI'm guessing we don't re-sign Hansen or we would have done it by now? Maruo is not longer on the roster. I wonder why they made that move to PR to end the season for him.
Quote from: TecnoGenius on February 13, 2024, 01:25:52 AMAh, that seems to have made Maruo disappear, as he's not in the FA lists either. I guess that answers that as to PR->disappear != FA.Maruo was going nowhere but PR after Hansen came back. No free GLOB AR spot. If we ditch the Sheehan Experiment(TM) in '24 then I'd love to have Maruo back. Double-especially if Hansen walks. I could easily argue Maruo would have been more useful in the GC than Hansen.Maruo did a ton of reps on D and was pretty good. I'd say at least as good as any of our NAT MLB/WLBers. Assuming he wants to keep playing in the CFL, I have no idea why we wouldn't sign him. I guess he might want a small bump above GLOB ELC. Ok. MOS seemed to like him, too.
Quote from: theaardvark on February 13, 2024, 05:02:00 PMHansen wasn't interested in a global salary once he had his 2 years in, and I'm not sure the Bombers felt he earned the big increase they got him, so I would not be surprised if we've seen the last of him in the CFL. Sad, because he was a favourite and quite the ST stud and wild on cheetah. Not sure if it was nagging injuries that prevented him from returning to form, but whatever it was, he certainly wasn't the player that would blow things up in his first few years.
Quote from: Throw Long Bannatyne on February 13, 2024, 05:47:12 PMHansen's big increase probably brought him up to minimum wage for rookies, he's been at the bottom tier of the wage scale for 3 years.
Quote from: theaardvark on February 13, 2024, 07:48:59 PMPretty sure it was foe considerably more than min wage, I remember seeing it was min for the first year, and then a raise for the second with an additional bump to make up for not being able to pay him in year one due to the Global restriction still being in effect.
