    I'd love to see VIU join the CanWest for football and get pounded by 50 every game until they realize it's a different beast going from junior to CIS.

    Because the owner of the VI Raiders, Hadi Abassi, is the Al Davis/Jerry Jones of the CJFL. The guy is a raving ego maniac living out his football fantasies with the Raiders.

    If its not all about the Raiders, he could care less. I wonder how he liked seeing the Hilltops "Team of the Decade" championship ring this past year...

    Oh okay. I have heard about this guy. He snatched Andrew Harris out of Winnipeg when he would have helped the Rifles immensely. Other Winnipeg players have gone out to Victoria.

    Lots of Airdrie kids that can't crack the Calgary politics played for the Raiders.

    Yes, the politics did exist. I think with John Stevens the new HC of the Colts, most... if not all of that is now gone. I know John. He has a lot of integrity. Now, it doesn't matter what team you played for in midget or high school... which was the case before. If a player is good, he'll play no matter where he comes from.
