We’re a day away from going to press with our Sept. 3 issue. One feature will be the second installment of Rider Fan Forum in advance of the Labour Day Classic against the Winnipeg Blue Bombers on Sept. 6. I sent the questions out on Aug. 27, and the panelists sent back their replies after the Riders imploded in Ottawa on Sunday.
One question I asked for their input on was the current state of the Green & White’s management, coaching and scouting system in light of this year’s winless season, and something like a 2W-20L mark since Darian Durant’s elbow injury in the 2014 Banjo Bowl.
I had to send the question back to them for a rewrite this evening though after the Riders shocked the Canadian sports world by severing ties (less than two years after a stirring 2013 home Grey Cup victory) with GM Brendan Taman and head coach Corey Chamblin.
