If fans had their way, the Calgary Stampeders would take the first trade available and move starting quarterback Henry Burris.

In the annual You Be the Boss poll, an overwhelming 63% of votes were cast in favour of trading the No. 1 pivot after a second straight playoff disappointment.

The highest-paid receiver didn't avoid the fans' wrath either, as 46% want Jeremaine Copeland and his touchdown dances ousted from McMahon Stadium.

As expected, the running game is popular, as both Joffrey Reynolds and Wes Cates gained approval for raises.

It seems fans are happy with Tom Higgins as head coach but not too pleased with the talent general manager Jim Barker is bringing into the organization.

A majority of fans want to keep Craig Dickenson as special teams co-ordinator and give his kickers, Sandro DeAngelis and Burke Dales, big raises.
