OFFSIDES...The Podcast. 25th Episode
On todays episode, we lead off with talking about Jones' replacement in Edmonton, Jason Maas, and how Etch feels about Ed Hervey's decision to hire a coach relatively "less-seasoned" than the Eskimo's are used to. If you're a follower of the Offsides podcast, you can probably already guess what Coach Etcheverry (who has 35 years of coaching experience) thinks.
One of the more interesting parts of todays show comes when we talk about Jeremy O'Day's new role and John Murphy, who steps into the Vice-Presidents role from Calgary. Murphy is definitely an interesting character and I think that he feels that he can be himself a little more now that he's out from under the Stampeder shadows (for lack of a better term). I think the more you guys hear from Murphy, the more you're going to like him.
Last episode Coach Etch told us all to "not be surprised" if Saskatchewan is not only in the Grey Cup next year, but WINS IT. This week he doesn't back off of that foreshadowing either. We finish a great conversation by taking another look at what Jones' hiring in Riderville has done to the rest of the CFL.
