Looks kinda bad on the Bombers to release Glenn so near his bonus payment. However, they did try to find a new home for him and they did try to renegotiate. I expect these are always tough decisions.

I was never a Glenn fan. Now watch him come back to haunt the Blue and Gold.

The point was to release him before the bonus needed to be paid.

He was great...but it is time to move on though....

Agreed, such is the world of professional athletes. You're only as good as your last game. Glenn's time had come....and passed.

I'd say it makes the Bombers look smart to release Glenn before the bonus is payable.

Seems we are getting a lot of Eskimos along with our new head coach...

If I had meant the northern living kind, I would have said Inuit.

I know Native Canadians that prefer to be called indians or NDNs, doesn't make it okay to refer to the whole group by that name though.

Just wait, some chief is going to launch a lawsuit against you. Until they realize you don't have the same resources as the CBC.

His time had come but if the rookies don't work out Kelly will look worse, or stupid.

Hamilton Tiger-Cats sign former Winnipeg Blue Bombers QB Kevin Glenn

HAMILTON, Ont. — The Hamilton Tiger-Cats signed veteran quarterback Kevin Glenn to a one-year contract Friday.

The deal includes an option for the 2010 season. The five-foot-10, 203-pound Detroit native has played eight CFL seasons with the Saskatchewan Roughriders (2001-03) and Winnipeg Blue Bombers (2004-08).

"Kevin's talent, experience and leadership will make him a valuable member of our team," Ticats GM Bob O'Billovich said in a release. "He will be a great fit in our offence and will give us a better chance to win in 2009."

Glenn was released by Winnipeg this month after a mediocre 2008 season with the Blue Bombers. Winnipeg posted an 8-10 record and lost to Edmonton in the East Division semifinal.

heh.. wouldn;t that be a hoot if Hamilton won it this year because of this? How long would our bomber coach stick around then eh?

Wouldn't you if your QB was starting in The Grey Cup and had only one start in the CFL before that?

Maybe but the play called was the dumbest one possible , and then to give your QB no choice but to pass when there was 10 yrds of open field ahead.
