We’re assuming that Campbell just forgot the word “made” in his Tweet, as in “the decision has been made about his future.” We’re also not going chirp anyone else about typos, especially on Twitter.
There were reports that Maas had lost the Eskimos’ dressing room – vehemently denied by Maas, quarterback Mike Reilly and GM Brock Sunderland – and SportsNet’s Arash Madani reported that Sunderland had been quietly shopping for possible replacements (also denied.) And, it should be said, just because Maas didn’t get fired doesn’t mean Sunderland didn’t make some quiet inquiries.
Though maybe he can convince Mike Reilly to return, which would be good.
Here’s a link to the show.
