    Its amazing how some teams (like the Stamps)really go hard with the open tryouts and others (like the Riders) have none. I can't remember how many players the Stamps have found in these open tryouts but I know its been quite a few. IMO its the better way to build a team then signing lots of free agents every year.

    They named a sports complex after a fictional television talk show host? ;)

    It's not always that cut and dry. The Riders (like the Bombers and Ticats) attend several combine/tryout days that are hosted by outside organizations. So while it isn't their event sometimes these ones attract more talent because of the chance to perform in front of several teams rather than just one.

    So they don't generate any revenue they also don't have to ensure they cover any costs/insurance.

    I would think the problem with not having your own tryout is if there is a player who really stands out there is more then one team trying sign him. If you have your own tryout then you can sit down with the player, talk to him and there is not another two or three teams trying to get him to sign with them.

    I guess both have their positives and negatives. I never knew that there was combines hosted by outside organizations. Thanks Rids

    I thought the Riders had their own private FA workouts. Hey, on OurBombers.com they are saying Joe Mack isn't even at the E Camp. Is that true, Ridsy? If so, Mack is just digging his own grave. Even if Brad Walters is there, this guy refuses to go to any CFL function. I think the man is disgraceful if it is true.

    This is very true! Some can almost look like auctions there on the sideline. The smart athlete says "Talk to my agent" but so many don't have that planned out.

    Not sure. I thought I saw Mack in one of the photos at the bench press. Tough to see sometimes in that mass of coaches/scouts. Mack was down at the Senior Bowl when I was there.
