Chris Jones has the biggest, most expensive coaching staff in CFL history. Yet they can’t even properly submit a players’ roster before a Saskatchewan Roughriders game.
An inexplicable lineup error left the Roughriders one player short for their game Thursday against the Edmonton Eskimos. An early injury forced even more roster juggling, but despite being short-handed, Saskatchewan’s defence kept the game close until Eskimos quarterback Mike Reilly orchestrated a fourth-quarter touchdown drive that gave Edmonton a 26-19 victory.
Jones, who’s paid at least $600,000 annually to be responsible for his team’s roster as its head coach, general manager and vice-president of football operations, said afterwards that three people are responsible for ensuring the list’s pregame accuracy. Jones also said his team had been out-played, out-prepared and out-coached. That’s unimaginable.
Did everyone else see Eskimos head coach Jason Maas snap on the sidelines as he tried to slam-dance a Gatorade container. Shown up by a coach who can’t even throw a proper hissy-fit — How embarrassing!
