Edmonton Eskimos Announce Name Change

The writing was on the wall when FedEx asked the Washington Redskins of the NFL to change their name in early July. Having followed football and the NFL for over 40 years, I could hardly believe what I was hearing! I never thought I would see the day where the team would be moving ahead...

Lions, the Ottawa RedBlacks and the Edmonton Eskimos had openings with the names of Rick Campbell and Paul LaPolice being the top candidates.

Ricky Ray to go on the Wall of Honour

When Ricky Ray arrived in Edmonton back in 2002, he was listed as the third string quarterback behind incumbent Jason Maas and Bart Hendricks. As I watched that training camp, there was one thing that was clear. Ricky Ray had a ‘touch’ that allowed him to put the ball where only his receiver could get...

Eskimos Open Season with a Win

If there was one question I had during training camp, it was how long would it take for the Eskimo offense to get on track? A brand new quarterback and brand new receivers learning a new system often takes weeks for everyone to get on the same page.  I was pleasantly surprised to see Trevor...
