Argos Fans vs. Bon Jovi…?

Heyl Argos Empire!

Y’know, in my nine years as a season ticket holder, I’ve seen Argos fans band together to fight many a foe; Argos fans vs. ticat fans, Argos fans vs. hunger, Argos fans vs. cancer, Argos fans vs. Rogers Centre scheduling,

And now, I’m about to see Argos fans vs…Bon Jovi?

The Argos Draft Strategy

Hey Argos Empire!

The CFL entry draft is right around the corner, and the Argos will join the other eight teams in the league as they look to the future of their respective franchises and begin the process of drafting their stars of tomorrow.  The challenge is the general manager, coaches, coordinators, players, even the fans have different perspectives on what the team needs should be addressed.  Fortunately, our spies got access to the Argos draft strategy meeting and brought us the tape.  Check it out;

Welcome back to the CFL Justin Medlock

Ok, ok …. I know he’s a Ti-Cat but when Justin was an Argo he was personally (though unwittingly) responsible for the one of the top ten greatest night in Paully Section 122 History (that is if you don’t include the Grey Cup, meeting cheerleader #966 / Emily, Vacation 2000 running woman …..). Did you know that you can’t keep field goals that are kicked into the stands?

Well. That’s not entirely true. The fact of the matter is that you can keep them if you’re fast or you have people who solve things for you (Yeah it’ll be a problem, a problem for them!).

Fortunately Section 122 has people who are both and because of this Justin’s left leg and wide right punts netted Section 122 four footballs on just two punts. Yes you read correctly four balls on two punts! I know the math doesn’t add up (unless you’re a Ti-Cats fan then the math looks just about right) but trust me it happened.

Therefore we in the Argos End Zone want to welcome Justin back to the CFL and let all the end zoners wide right of the field goal to be on the watch for drifting 3 pointers from the 10 yard line because lord knows the Ti-Cats won’t be scoring any touchdowns.

My RedBlacks Expansion Draft Argos Protection List

Hey Argos Empire!

The Ottawa RedBlacks…Sorry, the Ottawa REDBLACKS (gah) have joined the CFL and they need players.

                                    Decent logo, brutal name. Let's not pass judgment 'til we see the unis.

Decent logo, brutal name.
Let’s not pass judgment ’til we see the unis.

The league has decided that there’ll be an expansion draft, where Ottawa will be able to choose three roster players from each of the eight CFL franchises.  The Argos are allowed to protect one quarterback, ten import, and six non-import players.  To protect the relationship between players and ownership (gah) the league has decided to not release the names of the protected players.  Don Landry has put together a list that he’d protect and I figured I’d give it a shot. I mean, who loves speculating more than me?
