Every action has its consequences, even saying: “There will be consequences.”
So when Edmonton Eskimos head coach Kavis Reed threatened his players with the promise of consequences following a penalty-riddled loss to the B.C. Lions on Saturday, their first practice back on Tuesday offered a chance to find out just what he meant.
Though his response was somewhat cryptic.
“We’re responsible for making certain that we go out and play very efficient football,” Reed said. “To a man, we have to be responsible for what we are charged to do, and as players, they have certain assignments that they have to execute. When we don’t execute them well, we have to have accountability.
“We have addressed it and I think the message has been clearly stated to the players. It’s been dealt with. It’s done and we move forward to prepare for the B.C. Lions.”
But just how was it dealt with, on a team that leads the league both in penalties and yards-penalized, 30 for 227.
