Again, this may seem a small thing. Except it's a needlessly self indulgent decision when it would be so easy to take part in what is, after all, a gesture of good sportsmanship, something the TV cameras, almost without fail, try to capture once the game is over.

Trestman insisted his coaching staff and players demonstrate during the playing of the national anthem during his tenure in Montreal.

CFL nails Edmonton Eskimos coach with fine for needless disrespect

Look, after many difficult years in Edmonton, GM Ed Hervey and Jones believe their mandate is to deliver a winner, period.

As a professional and an American, Trestman knew he was just passing through Montreal and the CFL. He was grateful for the opportunity and made that abundantly clear, in word and gesture.

Up to a point, this is understandable. But only up to a point.

What is clear is that Jones, for good and ill, truly lives in a football bubble, so consumed is he with doing everything to help his team win the game at hand.

It really is quite the hermetically sealed bubble Jones lives in. It might be time to let more air and information penetrate the cocoon.

The statement goes on to say the club will "align with the Adidas Y3 New Release

Last week, in Ottawa, the nation's capital, in front of a full house that included Prime Minister Stephen Harper, the Eskimos didn't line up for the anthem at all.

But Jones is not much for pomp and circumstance, to say the very, very least.

This was evident in the apology the club released seconds after the CFL news release about the Jones fine came down the pipeline.

in the wake of the Canadian Football League fining Edmonton Eskimos head coach Chris Jones $5,000 for "disregarding pre game timing protocol" during the club's last three road games is this: What took the league so long?

I have no doubt that Jones, who has shown himself to be a superb defensive co ordinator for a decade in the CFL, and a creative and effective head coach in his first season in that role, also is grateful for the opportunity to run his own team in this league.

The central pre game ritual in the CFL, following introductions, is the playing of O Canada. Twice that ritual has been delayed by the Eskimos' curious decisions, which were made for no apparent reason.

Jones was asked about this during his brief media availability on Friday. A routine question about a ritual the Eskimos (Once an Eskimo Always an Eskimo) take seriously.

For example, it has already been widely noted around the league that he wants no part of the post game handshake ritual with the opposing head coach, win or lose.

It is and it isn't.

It was particularly so in a league whose players fly a replica of the Maple Leaf flag on their helmets, a league whose annual showcase has been ballyhooed as an important slice of Canadiana, on and on.

protocol set out by the league (so) as to not disrupt pre game timing and game day operation."

The Eskimos, too, know something about respect and ritual and the importance of symbols.

Believe me, Adidas Sl Loop Dollar both men are determined to do just that. And if that means there are some rough edges where football meets community involvement or pre game rituals, so be it, at least this season.

I know, I know. As the 6 1 Eskimos prepared to face Ricky Ray and the 3 5 Toronto Argonauts at Commonwealth Stadium, this seems like mighty small beer.

Three times the Eskimos have been introduced on the road in Winnipeg, Montreal, and Ottawa and remained huddled in a tunnel rather than trot onto the field as announced.

"The absence was the result of an internal miscommunication we have since corrected."

How on earth does not shaking hands help his team win? That's beyond me.

"We apologize for the team's on field absence during the national anthem last Friday in Ottawa," the Eskimos' statement read. "It was not intentional and does not represent the tremendous respect the Edmonton Eskimos Football Club holds for the nation, the league and fans.

On Friday, the Eskimos announced that offensive lineman Hector Pothier and the late Bill Stevenson, a star lineman both on offence and defence, both key performers with the club's five Grey Cups in a row glory days from 1978 82, will be added to the Wall of Honour at Commonwealth Stadium on Oct. 13.

Depending on your sensibility, this is either insignificant or, for those who take such rituals to heart, a high schoolish gesture, inappropriate for professional football. Not to mention disrespectful.

What comes to mind immediately about the Eskimos' pre game shenanigans is the absolute respect former Alouettes head coach Marc Adidas Nitrocharge Sl

Which makes it sound as if the Eskimos are sorry for going off script, rather than behaving in what some perceive as a slightly juvenile fashion in and around the playing of O Canada.
