Reports have come out saying that the Edmonton Eskimos will announce Eric Tillman as their new General Manager.
He comes with a track record that has positive and negative attributes.
One one side he has won 3 Grey cups with B.C. (’94), Toronto(’97), and Saskatchewan (’07).
On the Other side he had some brushes with the law. Tillman pleaded guilty to sexual assaulting his children’s babysitter and received an absolute discharge in January.
“The judge’s decision means Tillman is still considered guilty of the offence, but he will not have a criminal conviction and will not have to meet any sentencing conditions.”-ctv.ca
I think that this is a good move for the Esks. Tillman has no criminal history and I don’t think it would be any sort of distraction. He would turn this mediocre team into a Grey Cup contender. The positives outweigh the negatives in my book.
But what do you think? Let me know by tweeting at me @MikeWilsonITC or leave a comment.
Thanks for reading,
