But this is the Calgary Stampeders and not the Indians and we don’t have a meddling ownership group who’s trying to create the worst team possible so they can move the team to Florida.
This is a team that’s expected to repeat as Grey Cup Champions thanks to exceptional and engaged ownership, great management and a deep roster of young and exciting players whose only goal is to become the two time, two time, two time Grey Cup Champions.
When you look at the returning talent it’s hard not to get excited, Bo-Levi Mitchell is another year more experienced, Jon Cornish is still the best Canadian in the game and a game changer. You have an exceptional core of receivers that got stronger even with the departure of Mo Price and fan favorite Brad Sinopoli. The Defense should still be fierce even though the focus has shifted to some of the new names like Joe Burnett, and Jasper Simmons who adds to an already tough group.
As well the CFLHorsemen will still continue to run the Horsemen Radio Podcast where we seem to get a lot of exceptional player guests who will sit around with a bunch of fan boys, have a pop and talk about the team and the game that we love with so much passion.
The long off season is over, and thank goodness for that, it’s time to strap on your helmet, or your hat with the beer cans, pull on your jersey and enjoy a football season that starts in the summer and run through to the brutal cold of November.
