Quote from: Blue In BC on July 05, 2024, 02:58:19 PMHowever do the Argos really want a QB who is the face of the team with that perception pinned to his tail?

100% yes!  They want to win.  Teams have figured out Dukes.  I looked at the Dukes stats and every week he gets less passing yards (pretty much).

They certainly won't care for 2024.  I guess if Pinball really cared he could consider ditching or trading Kelly in the off-season... but I wouldn't bet money on that!!

Besides, if Kelly doesn't "reform", almost certainly he'll screw up again.  Dude should get a wife, one that will keep tabs on him and bring the hammer!  Could be the best thing to ever happen to him.  Often will make a fella grow up right fast!

Quote from: Throw Long Bannatyne on July 05, 2024, 03:25:06 PMQuestion is what proof does the CFL have?  I'm sure they don't have access to his financial records and the company he bet with likely would not readily hand over bettor information even if they kept a record of it, which I don't know if they do.

Well how did they find out to begin with?  They almost certainly have a whistleblower, whether someone inside the betting company, or some player Lemon bragged to, or a family member.  Loose lips sink Lemons.

Quote from: Throw Long Bannatyne on July 05, 2024, 05:40:53 PMJust wondering what security mechanisms the CFL has at their disposal, do they hire private detectives to do investigative work?  I have no idea how they investigated the Chad Kelly affair.

They told us in the Kelly incident already... check out the old Kelly thread.  CFL admitted they hired a Sask-based PI firm, which I find simply hilarious, because when I think of private eyes, I think of Regina...  ;D  ;D  ;D

Can we appeal out Game 1 loss for "Use of an illegal player"? 

Lemon have the most tackles and sacks of any Al.  His presence on the field affected the game.

"Illegal Participation, Gambling Player, Retroactive 300 yard penalty, Game result is overturned!"

I'm on board with that!  Make it so, number one!

The CFL is using the Regina version: "put that wheat and potash back, punk!"

That's part of the issue in allowing a player to play while in arbitration. You can't take back what is allowed to proceed.

The Lemon case is the perfect example since it's the 1st time we've had a permanent ban from playing. His suspension might be reduced so there might be something acceptable as a result.
