Ugh! Chance to win and with a 4 point lead they concede the safety. Then lose when Calgary scores a field goal.

The defense held them out of the end zone the whole night. Why not trust them?

Yeah. I wouldn't have chose to concede the safety. That said, if you elect to punt out of your endzone and it gets blocked or whatever, then you look like an idiot too...it was a tough spot and just so happened that Campbell's decision blew up in his face.

That's more like it. Win a game against a division opponent and knock out their starting quarterback at the same time.

Davis must be leaving the league in interceptions by now.

Oof! I actually started flipping to the Toronto-Montreal MLS game. Boring as hell but at least it didn't provoke me to screaming obscenities at the tv.

Jennings taking over for Davis. At 3-7 it's likely too late to salvage the season. Gotta pass either Montreal (5-4) or Edmonton (6-5).

I think we can lock this thread down. They are done.

Campbell getting the axe for all of Desjardins' mistakes.

It's now being reported that this was Campbell's decision to step down...which almost never happens with a coach still under contract, so I'm guessing Campbell has something else lined up somewhere?

Hank said Desjardins was throwing Campbell under the bus for this season. If ownership backed three GM Campbell may have seen the writing on the wall. Or maybe he said him or me. In any case, if there was any truth in what Hank said this would have been a bad work environment.

But I would not be surprised if Edmonton suddenly had an opening.

So if it IS Campbell quitting (i.e. his own decision), then he loses his salary for the upcoming season. He obviously wouldn’t do this unless he had other employment lined up (or the working environment was really that bad, but I don’t see that being the case).

If the Redblacks fired him, he gets paycheques for the upcoming season, unless he was hired on somewhere else. You rarely see coaches with term left on their contracts quit.

Not that anyone really cares at this point, but it appears that he WILL be paid unless he gets another job, which 100% means that this was the team’s idea to have him “step down” and he’s not doing this as his own decision (although he might agree that its best for him and the team).
