Danny Maciocia will not be following Eric Tillman's lead anytime soon.

The Saskatchewan Roughriders GM is gaining national attention for a candid and emotional reply on the team's Website to a fan's criticism of Saskatchewan head coach Kent Austin and the management team.

Tillman wrote about being left with a salary cap nightmare from the previous regime, among other eye-raising points.

"I will read the paper every so often. I will listen to the talk shows. I don't get on the (fan) websites because it wouldn't be good," said Maciocia, Edmonton Eskimos head coach.

"There are just so many things being said about so many different people.

"That is something for the fans. They exchange ideas and express how they feel.

"That is exactly what it should be."

The Edmonton market is home to esksfans.com, a very popular fan website.

But Maciocia won't be posting anything for fans to read.

"I have a hard time using a computer," he cracked.

"I don't think I will be getting on a website anytime soon."

FINISH LINES ...

As usual, Jason Tucker (thigh/knee) and T.J. Acree (foot) didn't practice yesterday.

Like the last two weeks, their playing status for this week's game will be determined rather close to kickoff.

"I have nicknamed them both Game Time," said Maciocia, referring to both players becoming game time decisions.

"So, I guess they will let me know (if they are playing this week) by game time.

"I think nothing has changed there.

"I think they both going to be out (of practice today)," he added.
