On Tuesday, the Ottawa Redblacks introduced Henry Burris as

On Tuesday, the Ottawa Redblacks introduced Henry Burris as their newest quarterback, joining Thomas DeMarco and Kevin Glenn, who were picked up in the expansion draft. Terry Bradshaw Steelers Jersey . Last week, the Blue Bombers made a substantial multi-year offer to Burris to take over the starters role. In a telling move, the veteran pivot turned down the offer, choosing instead to join the expansion Redblacks, assuming he thinks they offer a better chance at immediate success. Do you agree? Are the Redblacks a better option than the Blue Bombers right now? Last season, the Blue Bombers struggled to a 3-15 season and replaced head coach Tim Burke with Mike OShea, the likeable special teams coordinator from the Toronto Argonauts. Marcel Bellefeuille is back as the offensive coordinator, a position he took over last August. Changes are happening in the Manitoba capital in hopes of turning things around in short order. And in a league the size of the CFL, teams have gone from worst to competitive on many occasions so the Blue Bombers could very well make the playoffs as early as next season. Expansion teams rarely compete for a playoff spot In Ottawa, winning is not expected to come quickly. With a roster made up of players who were left exposed by existing teams in the expansion draft, it will take some time to build a successful organization. Thats what makes this move surprising. At 38 years of age, Burris window to win is small and yet, he decided the Redblacks offered a better opportunity than the Blue Bombers. Secondly, by making the offer to Burris after his release from the Hamilton Tiger-Cats, the Blue Bombers made it clear who their starting quarterback would be in Week 1. There would be competition in training camp but the job would be his to lose. The situation is not so clear cut in the nations capital. Burris will have fellow veteran Glenn, who likely thought he had the inside track on the starters role before Tuesdays move, and De Marco, likely the quarterback of the future, to contend with. While the early nod may go to Burris, the other two candidates bring their own talents to the table and will be gunning for that top job. Many factors go into making the kind of decision Burris made on Tuesday and winning is usually at or near the top of the list for professional athletes. Taking everything into consideration, Burris decided Ottawa was a better fit than Winnipeg. Do you agree? Which team do you think offers the best opportunity to win now: Redblacks or Blue Bombers? As always, its Your! Call. Joe Greene Steelers Jersey . - Dolphins safety Louis Delmas has been carted off the field with a right knee injury against the Ravens. Artie Burns Steelers Jersey . In their first meeting for six years, the Frenchmen dropped serve twice in the first set, but Giquel broke Simon two more times in the second. Gicquel moves on to face sixth-seeded Jarkko Nieminen of Finland, who advanced with a 7-6 (5), 7-6 (5) win against wild card Pierre-Hugues Herbert, despite the Frenchmans 23 aces. . They actually finished with a better record in 07 than they did in 06 but only marginally, going from 61 victories to 66.Each week, The Reporters put their thumbs out to the good and the bad in the world of sports. This week, they discuss the womens World Cup being played on turf, McMaster Universitys surprising hiring of Glen Grunwald, the Spurs hiring of Becky Hammon, and Tom Watsons performance at the PGA Championship. Bruce Arthur, Toronto Star My thumb is down to the storm around Canadas 2015 womens World Cup of soccer, which now features about 40 prominent players, from Abby Wambach to Alex Morgan, threatening a lawsuit with high-powered lawyers because the tournament is the first World Cup to be played on artificial turf. They claim thats discrimination. Now, the way the threat was delivered seems silly on the surface, sure. But the fact that a World Cup will take place on turf for the first time is ridiculous, too. Just like, say, playing the mens World Cup in Qatar in the summer of 2022, or in Russia in 2018. Its almost like theres a mess almost every time now. Maybe FIFA, when it comes to venues, isnt discriminating enough. Steve Simmons, SUN Media My thumb is up to McMaster University for the surprising hiring of Glen Grunwald as athletic director. We don't tend to think much about CIS sports, about who runs university sport across Canada, but in bringing in Grunwald, former general manager of the Toronto Raptors and New York Knicks, former US national champion at Indiana University, McMaster is turning its program over to someone who thinks larger than CIS thinks, who dreams bigger, who might supply original thought to university sport in Canada, which has had a tendency of tripping over itself year after year. Ill be honest, I don't know too many athletic directors in Canada, but I know Grunwald and IIm excited about what he might be able to accomplish at McMaster and by extension across this country. Jack Butler Steelers Jersey. Michael Farber, Sports Illustrated My thumb is up to the hiring of Becky Hammon as an assistant coach by the best organization in professional sports, the San Antonio Spurs. If Gregg Popovich thinks she can coach, she can coach. Full stop. Like Hammon, Popovich is one of a kind. There is no other coach or executive who has earned the latitude to deviate from industry norms, which Popovich did by hiring the first full-time female assistant. This is not about a shattered glass ceiling. This is about Popovich thinking creatively, stretching boundaries. Now it is up to a mature team to take guidance from a former WNBA player in the way it would from any other spurs assistant. Dave Hodge, TSN If this isnt a ball sitting on a tee staring up at me, I don't know what an obvious thumb is. As the oldest in this group, I am obliged and very happy to say "thumbs up" to 64-year-old Tom Watson. Not to make Tiger Woods or his fans any more miserable, but lets consider again the scenario at Valhalla on Thursday. Woods was trying his best to win the PGA and extend his season so that Ryder Cup captain Watson could consider him a candidate for one of the last spots on the United States team. Based on their 36-hole scores, Watson had more reason to pick himself than to bow to Tigers past greatness - three over par for Watson, six over for Woods. Admittedly, Tiger had a problem with his back. Not until the course played considerably longer on Friday did Watson admit to a problem with his age. Such a problem that every other 64-year-old golfer in the world would love to have.
