    Good to hear an end is in site. Hopefully this young man has learned from this and becomes smarter. Not likely helping the esks this year but he can practice and come in next year having learned from a great organization

  2. You’d think that the St. John lesson, missing training camp, would be a sign of how important it is to get to camp.

    I think they have the same agent. I heard part of a report on the radio on him I believe but can’t say for sure. Why would an agent create that kind of issue for a rookie. I realize everyone wants to get top dollar but does the CFL not have some kind of cap on rookies?? Correct me if I am mistaken.

    They do have the same agent and he’s a fool. His MO for every player is to hold out which doesn’t do the player any good. See Matt O’Donnell and Josiah St. John. Fortunately O’Donnell has turned into a player but it took a couple of years, hopefully St. John and Behar can do the same.
