Drama in Riderville: Chamblin reportedly stays, evaluation mode begins

After falling to 0-6 with a 30-5 loss to the Edmonton Eskimos, reports began surfacing that general manager Brendan Taman would be asking the Roughrider brain trust about firing Corey Chamblin.

Taman met with the media the next day and, needless to say, no one got fired.

Despite Taman’s words, Gary Lawless still stands by his report.

Even though changes haven’t been made with Roughrider management (yet) things have started to change regarding players.

Oh, and Jamel Richardson is no longer donning the Green & White. The Riders seem like they’re in pure evaluation mode now.

Some reinforcements were back on the practice field today, though. Keenan MacDougall, Marshay Green and Mark Legree all returned, causing an odd sense of optimism with Rider fans.

The 0-6 Riders head into Toronto take on the Argos who may be reeling (and without Chad Owens) after a 34-18 loss to the Hamilton Tiger-Cats. Is there a chance the Riders erase that huge goose egg from the win column and thus preventing anyone else from using that terrible ‘Owen Six’ knock knock joke which is so played out already?
