You gotta love June Jones. If you’re a media type or an ardent CFL fan, that is.
Sometimes he lets you know stuff the Ticat organization might rather he didn’t.
During a conference call about the Jeremiah Masoli signing Thursday the head coach inadvertently got in the way of the Tiger-Cats’ planned schedule of news releases when he mentioned that the team had already signed receiver/returner Speedy Banks. 3DownNation’s Justin Dunk reported the Banks extension on Wednesday.
The Cats had planned to announce that Friday, and hold a press conference with Banks Friday afternoon. That conference will still happen but without any element of surprise.
Jones had been asked whether, with a full off-season and training camp to work with, how much thicker this year’s playbook would be than last year’s keep-it-simpler approach.
“Jeremiah was starting to get a real good understanding of the concepts and the receivers were starting to buy into it too, so I think we can take it to the next level,” Jones answered before adding:
“We got Speedy signed also, and I’m excited about putting all that together. And really starting where we left off.”
