Durant Sounds Off
Darian Durant didn't pull any punches Friday afternoon as he talked about his departure from Saskatchewan in an interview with 620 CKRM's Rod Pedersen on Saskatchewan's #1 Sports Show--the Sportscage.
Durant, who met the media for the first time in Montreal since the trade that brought him to the Alouettes, says he knew his time in Riderville was over after an article by Rob Vanstone in the Regina Leader-Post in which head coach/general manager Chris Jones referred to him as "moderately successful".
At the end of the day, some things were said about me personally that I thought were uncalled for. To have a coach or GM come out and call a player average and blame the wins and losses on one guy is a low blow. For him to put all the blame on me was something I didn't appreciate." Durant said.
Durant added he doesn't know when the Alouettes will be in Regina because the CFL schedule hasn't come out, but he says he will have that date circled on the calendar.
