Duron Carter criticizes TSN top 50 CFL players list

Duron Carter feels he was criminally undervalued by TSN’s list of  Top 50 CFL players last year.

The Saskatchewan Roughriders receiver took to Twitter Monday morning to make his written argument for a place among the league’s elite.

Carter checked in at 35 on the annual TSN list of the top 50 CFL players around the league with eight receivers ranked ahead of the star pass catcher.

Carter was 10th in receiving yards (1,043) last season while earning CFL all-star honours. Adarius Bowman (3), DaVaris Daniels (20), Ernest Jackson (23), Chris Williams (30) and Namaan Roosevelt (32) all had fewer yards than Carter but a higher ranking on the TSN list.

Of course the two receivers who had the most prolific seasons last year weren’t even ranked coming into the campaign: Brandon Zylstra (1,687 yards) and S.J. Green (1,462 yards).

Six defensive backs were included among the top 50: Maurice Leggett (16), Jamar Wall (21), T.J. Heath (33), Tommie Campbell (39), Taylor Loffler (40) and Emanuel Davis (41). Pertinent because Riders head coach Chris Jones has said Carter would be the best cover man in the league if he played defence full-time.

Given his production on both sides of the ball, Carter has a strong case for a higher ranking this season. The show will be broadcast on TSN June 12.

  1. This is what Carter is worried about right now?
    He was the 10th best at his position. 35 is about right.

    • Anybody that thinks all you have to do to rank receivers is to rank them by yardage is laughably simplistic. 10th best receiver? You’re a clown.

      • I agree with you, Yardage doesn’t tell the entire story. Of Carters 1000 yards, 1 quarter came in 1 game. He is more like an 800 yard receiver

        • Yeah, and he also spent three games playing defense, not racking up receiving yards.

          If you count his pick-six against Choke-Levi Mitchell, that’s 42 more yards right there. 🙂

          • lol …. keep dreaming of that pick 6. It’s all rider fans have to cheer about
            FYI,,,,, per game average, his numbers were slightly lower than his first 3 years in Montreal

          • With 2 not so good QB’s little Red riding hood. Have it been Reilly, Harris or Collaros throwing to him, completely different ball game.

          • As far as I remember, his first three years in Mtl were pretty darn good. I don’t see a problem.

            Rider fans have a lot more to cheer about than just that pick-six. But yes, I’ll continue to remember it because it was awesome.

          • Lol , Carter catch a pass from Reilly? He would not make it to the Eskimos practice roster, too funny!

          • “As far as I remember, his first three years in Mtl were pretty darn good.”

            Sure. Aside from sowing dissent and blowing up the lockeroom, being unceremoniously thrown off the team (with his cousin) and being responsible for the team and the league losing a great young quarterback…

            …I’d say he was a “peach” out here in Montreal. May he never show his face on the Alouettes again. EVER.

    • Hi end receivers are always a bit cocky. If he plays like last year I’ll take it.

    • MR. Green // April 23, 2018 at 11:21 am //

      Carter is the games best receiver and too 5 DB. He made Bo his B1+ch. He made the nicest catch last season and gave that ball to a special young lady. He interacts with fans from all over the league, even on the road after pregame warmup, will purposely walk over and say hi, every game!
      The guy is having fun and loving the CFL. Every player in the CFL who is not number 1 on that list, should disagree. It is all in fun and only opinions. Carter, is not “worried” little red, get over yourself. If you seriously think he is “worried”, then your mind is ******.

      • Top 5 DB??????? You sure about that?
        If that was the case I’d say keep him on defence!

      • The guys is a great receiver, great DB, great kick returner, punt returner.
        Should be the number one all-round player.

        Too bad he won’t be back. If he’s convicted as a “dealer” he won’t be allowed back in the country.

      • Johnny Blumpkin // April 24, 2018 at 11:29 am //

        Lay off the Tide Pods. Holy Moses! LOL

    • How many receivers(on the opposing team) caught a pass from Bo??

    • 3rd and 1 // April 23, 2018 at 5:23 pm //

      Hey Head… the guy played 2 games at the boundary corner position. At which time he made little Bo Peep Quarterbacking skills look like a little girl. Stating he was going to throw 30 falls at Carter. Instead Carter took the second ball all the way back to the house. When a WR plays boundary Courbet It seriously effects his stats at WR. I guarantee you that Carter would be much higher up the list has he stayed on offence.
      Yet giving up the awards for the Dickie was worth it.

    • brian johnson // April 25, 2018 at 10:05 am //

      Yah!Duron Carter feels he was criminally undervalued
      or did he mean was to face two criminal charges.
      Hes the one who should cancel his Twitter account.
      Class very little or none. Now watch the crying and insults start. Truth does hurt.

  2. Paul Bomber // April 23, 2018 at 10:00 am //

    Chronic self-esteem issues. If he isn’t the centre of attention, there’s something wrong. It’s a big part of the answer to the question: Why did Duron get run out of the NFL?

    • Indeed, and what leads to his outbursts at practice and during games.

    • Huff's Neighbor // April 23, 2018 at 10:27 am //

      Ya so what. You perfect? I doubt it, and don’t start on Mrs Red, she’s a clinical nutbar. You two take the Let’s Hate All Things Riders cake and pie, and first prize. Enjoy last place.

      • By no means am I perfect. I’m also not a high profile personality under the scrutiny of the public

        • Huff's Neighbor // April 23, 2018 at 1:20 pm //

          You would have to leave the basement for that to happen. When are you going with the handle: I judge everyone ???

    • White Horse // April 23, 2018 at 11:48 am //

      I think this Carter tweet was also just a “tongue in cheek” The same type of tweet BLM fired at Carter about playing DB against the Stamps. Rider fans will make a big deal about nothing!!!

    • “Chronic self-esteem issues. If he isn’t the centre of attention, there’s something wrong.”

      Did somebody say “toxic narcissist”? For some reason this mental condition is all the rage.

  3. solara2000 // April 23, 2018 at 10:08 am //

    Don’t know the criteria for Top 50, but from a talent perspective, don’t know of another WR that I would take over DC. Pure talent. Also when you factor in the entertainment value, in the top echelon and lastly from a ‘game-promotion’ perspective in the midst of crowded sports markets, no one in his league.

    • If you want to talk about pure talent in terms of athletic ability; Carter may very well be the best, however he drops some easy catches and he’s not the greatest route runner. He himself admits to not watching film which probably takes away from his potential too.

  4. I just want to say that that mr red guy completely ruined my experience on this site. Complete narcissistic a hole. And everyone else he baits into childish school yard arguments and no doubt he’ll sully this comment section as well. I used to really enjoy some of the thoughtful comments but lately I’ve found myself scrolling and scrolling until I’ve found anything worth reading without being appalled. Its embarrassing you guys. Not that it’ll matter but 3down I don’t come here much anymore but congrats on all your click bait bs comments you’ve let infest this site. I’ll stick with Pederson I suppose. Go duron. Go riders! Red guy you should be really proud too as u clearly do not have a rational conscience and get satisfaction getting in everyone else kitchen. Bravo man.

    • YOu don’t click bait and your new choice is Pedersen????

      • Tailgate YYC // April 23, 2018 at 3:56 pm //

        Mr Red, you have no conscience. Boo Eskimos states a legit concern, something we are all thinking, and you just carry on as if it was a daily happening for you….oh wait….it is.
        Just go away and stop turding this site.

    • Site Admin had to make a choice, and for whatever reason they’ve sided with the known agitator at the expense of everyone else’s experience.

    • riderontheisland // April 23, 2018 at 11:25 am //

      Boo esky, cheers to that and I’ve personally got caught up with Mr. Red to the point where they restrict my comments from posting. So without a voice being heard and the questionable journalism on top of constant mindless banter (with catalyst being Red) there isn’t much of a point to visiting this site.

      • White Horse // April 23, 2018 at 11:53 am //

        You rider sliders who complain about click bait….what are you doing here then??

        • Habsnriders // April 23, 2018 at 12:20 pm //

          Did you come up with that “slider” term all by your itty bitty self? Wow that’s impressive did your mom put it on the fridge and give you a cookie and a good boy.

        • riderontheisland // April 23, 2018 at 12:24 pm //

          White Horse, if you can’t read you are exactly what is being complained about. Can’t control ignorance.

  5. how about we list the top 50 egos

  6. Gainer Jr // April 23, 2018 at 10:47 am //

    Should be in the top 10 forsure. Carter is a pure athlete on the field and real joy to watch off the field. Can’t wait for the 2018 season to get under way, and watch Carter kick some butt on both sides of the ball. No need to listen to the dumba**ery of mom’s basement dwelling losers. Keep it up #89…you send a tweet and the CFL world makes it headline news…everyone is already only talking about Carter and the season hasn’t even started yet…love it!!

  7. At least he ranks #1 in drug possesion charges.

    • Actually Pumper.. That title is for Roy Finch. Lets no forget his 40 time he ran while getting chased by Police.

      • robE…HUH? Looked like he didn’t even run 40 yards before getting tackled by a big cop who was just finishing his donut.

  8. MR. Green // April 23, 2018 at 11:04 am //

    I think everyone has a right to an opinion. He has a right to disagree, and I agree with Carter. Last season a well he never had a top QB throwing to him. If Collaros regains his for DC is in for a big year. In fact, Carter has never had, even a top 6 or 7 QB. Bridge needs to take the next step and be consistent.
    What haters also don’t understand, is he is having fun with this, showing excitement for the new season and not afraid to say how he feels. He is not the first or the last. IMO, if he had a Reilly, Ray or Nichols last season, he easily gets over 1500 yard.

    • I agree MR. Green. With Collaros, you are going to see monster year from those two. the league is not even going to know what hit them.

    • He would have over 1500 yards?? Maybe depends which of the riders receivers Collaros has the best chemistry with.

      • It’s either going to be Rosie or Carter. Most likely it will be both. It’s not hard to throw to a 6’5″ Carter. Even Glenn/Bridge could, and they aren’t even close to be best qbs out there.
        And well Roosevelt pretty much can get into sync with whatever qb comes in.

  9. Yes, it’s boastful, self-absorbed etc. etc. But he doesn’t take himself nearly as seriously as some of the commentators here. He’s fun. And it’s lovely for the league.

  10. Roy Finch is going to be doing a lot of receiving….in JAIL hahahaha

  11. riderontheisland // April 23, 2018 at 11:34 am //

    Don’t worry Duron because all you have to do is look at the 2017 list to have a good laugh. Bowman did not perform like a top 20 never mind #3 and Jennings at 5 who lost his starting job. Dennis was a flop in Riderville and Chick was traded and since retired. These were all top 10 players. You have Ray, Nichols, and Durant at 27-29 and the first 2 names should have been about 20 places higher and Durant shouldn’t have had a job at all.

    • greenenvy? // April 23, 2018 at 11:48 am //

      Here’s a good laugh IslandRider. Of Duron’s 1043 yards, 522 came vs the 4 games with Toronto & Ottawa. Taking away his one game at DB in Calgary, that means he had 521 yards in the other 13 games including 6 games (1/3 season) of 25 yards or less. How many receivers do you think can put up 500 yards over 13 games – don’t need to be an all-star for that production. If the Riders want to beat the big boys like Calgary & Edmonton, their “star” receiver might want to do better than 2 catches for 25 yards vs the Esks & 4 catches for 16 yards in his non-DB game vs Calgary. Duron has to pump his tires because if voters actually looked at his production more closely, they would wonder about placing him top 15. “I better be in the top 10”???? It’s based upon production, not “potential” or “perceived talent”. But it wouldn’t surprise me that the white noise coming from Carter will get some voters trying to placate the “boy”. Here we are again talking about the little child that can’t keep his mouth shut. Rumour had it that the Carter fight was over Duron braying about his big game & one of the Riders was annoyed since they lost that game. All talk no walk.

      • riderontheisland // April 23, 2018 at 11:58 am //

        greenenvy, Duron is like most top tier receivers and brings an ego to the field. That said it’s easy to be selective and dive into stats on any player to build them up, or knock them down. I would correct you in that it is more the depth of the Riders receivers that allows DC to be a distraction to the opposing D in some games and I’m just fine with that. You also very slightly graze over him playing DB because he did it a fair amount and I don’t see any other receivers getting in little Bo Peeps head with a pick 6. Ya I want that guy on my team!!

        • greenenvy? // April 23, 2018 at 12:10 pm //

          Selective thinking, Rider. You really LIVE by that one game, don’t you? You really want to compare Carter to a guy like Zylstra? Seriously? You’re perfectly correct that DC is a distraction – no irony in that statement. As much to his own team as the opposition. Carter didn’t play DB until late in the season when Jones announced he was mulling putting him in, not coincidentally to me, right after the practice incident. Jones also said he was handling it internally & I wouldn’t be a bit surprised he was put back there to get him away from the offensive coach who was involved. Rumour had it that he was tired of Carter’s antics on offence & “coaching input” in meetings. Makes me wonder if that coach was one of the two now in BC. But that’s conjecture isn’t it? Kind of the response I get whenever you get hard facts. So there you are – opinions. Like those better? Great. Then we’re cool Island. Personally I like to see results.

          • riderontheisland // April 23, 2018 at 12:34 pm //

            I like results also, but recognize it’s a team effort and if DC flips to the other side of the ball for a few games and gets nothing for receiving yards so be it. I was worried about him coming in too, but Jones has him working out just fine. DC will get exposure to anything negative he does because he is DC. I take it with a grain of salt and enjoy the results. I guess we will see who the big boys are this season and we can chat then.

        • So why is it ok for Carter to bring his ego to the field but players from other teams aren’t allowed??

      • more mindless “flapping of gums” Actually, Carter wasn’t fighting “over” anything. He was trying to break up a fight.

  12. Barry Soetoro // April 23, 2018 at 11:39 am //

    If the Crown does it’s job, he won’t even be playing, so we won’t have to worry about it.

    • The Crown isn’t going to pursue this any further. Both charges will be thrown out eventually. It’s not worth the court’s time or money.

      • If they are going to throw it out, what the delay?

        • Why are they allowing the delays? Because this is happening to every single minor possession charge. If you actually read.. most courts right now are dropping these charges, because of they are bunging up the system. Again waste of time and money. As it gets closer and closer to legalization, this is happening.

          • You are Wrong RobE.
            This isn’t simple possession, this is carrying it across the border.
            The delay is on Carter’s end to try to push it off until the end of the year, thus allowing him to play the season.

          • Well it truly depends. The one charge was less than the 28g’s, so it will be thrown out of court. The other one was for the cookies. It’s going to be pretty hard to determine how much marijuana is truly in there. So again, it will be thrown out.

          • You’re right red, this isn’t a simple obsession – it borders on clinical. ……..oh wait a minute, I read this wrong. I saw your handle on a Carter thread, and immediately related it to obsession. Oh well…it’s Monday.

          • He did it twice!!

          • “The other one was for the cookies. It’s going to be pretty hard to determine how much marijuana is truly in there.”

            It is no more difficult to determine how much THC and other cannabinoids are in cookies than in flowers or concentrates. So…

      • Red&White Forever // April 23, 2018 at 12:11 pm //

        The problem is the amounts Carter was carrying, being caught TWICE, and being caught trying to fly with those amounts. He had more on him than a simple possession charge. He had enough on him BOTH times for a trafficking charge, not so easily swept under the rug as a couple of possession charges. Think of it this way, he’s a foreign national carrying enough weed for trafficking, caught twice in Canadian airports. If he wasn’t a football player this guy would be gone back to the US or in jail already.

        • Do you even read? The first charge was for less than 28g’s(which is the amount for possession, in case you didn’t know) and the second involved cookies. Which again, good luck tying to determine how much marijuana is truly in there. Both will be thrown out, no doubt about it.

          • Riders23 // April 23, 2018 at 2:15 pm //

            Don’t come up with hard facts that make sence Rob, it defuses the HATERS , and then they cant find favorable facts to trash Rider players and Rider fans , thus destroying their day!!! Hard to have a good day when your energy is fueled by loathing/hatred— Red and Greenenvey would be lost without being able to trash Rider articles !!! —- talk about not HAVING A life!

        • Under 30 grams is possession, not trafficking.

        • and your source for claiming those stupid amounts is?????
          are you another clone of the whack job?

  13. You must be the funniest guy you know red guy.what an enjoyable life you must have Duron Carter is a beauty. Yes Pederson is “biassed” but I like it. Far less nanny nanny poo poo than here. Have fun with this nut you guys.

    • Sounds to be like you just like to hear what you want to hear. That’s why you like Petersen

    • greenenvy? // April 23, 2018 at 12:01 pm //

      You obviously can’t make heads or tails out of stats, Boo. Carter is the most overrated guy who has come through the league in a long time. All this proves is that Mr Grown Up is going to need a lot of hand holding again. Maybe Jones will have to play him at DB when they play the Esks or Alberta to give him a chance to surpass the 41 total receiving yards in 4 games at receiver vs those 2 clubs in 2017. I do love Carter, though, because he sure owns you guys. OF COURSE the problem was Glenn & now you got Collaros. You’re teaming up the QB with the worst rating on deep passes (25% completion last year) with the receiver with the worst rating on catches (30% of targets caught). Maybe someone should ‘splain to Duron that getting open is only 1/2 of the equation, the other half is you gotta catch the ball.

      • 2018 envy…..new year, new season.

      • Greenenvy is toking up again. He has a fact book that is waaaaaaay out there. 30%…is that the purity of your crack? cocaine I mean…not really interested in YOUR personal crack.

  14. White Horse // April 23, 2018 at 12:03 pm //

    Duron….you just don’t threaten anyone about being better than #35. You have to prove it. Do you have a QB who can get the ball to you? Not sure about it!!

  15. Nope not “not and bolts game bu game” stays guy per se.. but I know you guys sure talk about him allot. I’d say mission accomplished on his part no? And yes Red I like hearing what he has to say in an adult voice. Not your red biased condescending childish venom you choose to unleash on these guys. But I’m glad you get a kick out of it. Your well practiced at this I’ll give u that. Must be a riot at parties. Youd make a great opposition politician even.

  16. It would be nice if this guy could just shut up and stick to playing football, roosevelt is truly the class reciever of the 4 th place riders he should catch more balls thrown his way and maybe just maybe he will move up , for every one great catch he makes he drops 3 easy ones

  17. Remember that Duron is always double teamed and has to share reps with at least four other high profile pass catchers unlike Calgary with 1 , maybe 2 that may catch the odd pass!!9

    • greenenvy? // April 23, 2018 at 12:54 pm //

      OMG, give it up Weslee. Carter gets top 10 targets on your team. He had as many targets/game as Zylstra. Do you seriously think that other receivers in the league don’t get double teamed? Green in TO was triple teamed one game. Sewell is regularly triple teamed & still gets his sacks. Carter’s best year in 2014 when he placed 3rd in receiving had 1030 yards. His catches/target were practically identical to last year & he usually catches about 60% of the balls thrown his way – that’s consistent AND average for a receiver. How does he end up almost 650 yards behind the leader, Zylstra? Zylstra caught 76% of his targets. They BOTH play wideout, they BOTH draw extra coverage. But if you really want to excuse his production for being double teamed, here’s an opinion not fact. That’s what the great players expect & great players excel despite it. If you’re not getting double coverage, that only means teams don’t think you’re all that good. Deal with it. Stop complaining about it.

      • OMG give it up greenenvy. You just dumb

        • greenenvy? // April 23, 2018 at 1:02 pm //

          Intelligent response Ms. Red.

          • Get used to it, I am just joining yours and Red’s level of intellect on all your comments that I read on here. I actually didn’t read your above comment, but my guess is it’s just dumb like everything else you put on here. You 2 don’t want to have an intelligent conversation, this is what you get then.

          • greenenvy? // April 23, 2018 at 1:58 pm //

            Sorry, did you say something?

      • We did have 3 receivers over 1000 yards. Not top bad considering Naaman sat out a few after he got his bell rung, and Carter played D.

        Closest Cowgary had was their bus driver Marquay at 860. For that matter the top 2 receivers in red, had less yardage combined than Zylstra.

        • 28-6-2

          Oh if only we had a 1000 yard receiver last year!!!!!!! why can’t we be like sask!!!
          FYI—- You blame me for being insensitive to the recent tragedy??? bus driver????

        • You really are beyond stupid. The reference was, to throwing Jordan under the bus you moron.

          • You really should think before hitting reply. It was very insensitive regardless of your intent.

          • Like you should have with the direct and intentional classless COMMENTS (several) you made. Don’t effin go there!!!!!

    • lol
      Yeah, Calgary catches the odd pass……..and the odd win here and there……..honestly do you guys think before you send these comments?

      • Bo throws the odd duck…most notably in the Grey Cup. Do you even think before you………ahhh, forget it.

  18. I know it has been a long winter ,but loosen up folks. It is all in jest.

  19. Naaman is a stud no doubt. Got his bell rung couple times last year pretty bad so don’t know how much longer he can go but he’s lights out and often forgotten. I’m sure he’s glad Carter takes the spotlight too!

  20. Lol! And Carter owns the trolls again! He just has to snap his fingers and the trolls are on all fours licking his boots! He says jump and they say, “how high?” The equine one spends his life here being nothing but a worthless troll, hundreds of hours doing nothing but trolling, and he STILL gets pwned by Carter. Lol!

    • greenenvy? // April 23, 2018 at 1:11 pm //

      Well, well, well the gang’s all here. Who’s the guy owned by Carter? Looks to me like there’s a lot of Rider trolls jumping for DC. You’re not getting any more original though at least you haven’t brought up the “plus five” nugget yet.

      • well, well, well spewing crap like always. have to keep an eye out for this keyboard warrior

        • greenenvy? // April 23, 2018 at 3:12 pm //

          Well looky looky looky who’s following me around? I’m flattered but really, you must have better things to do. Let’s see – the sum of your input is “you spew crap” & TWO “you’re dumb’s”. Does that cover it, Red? Got it. Do you? Good.

  21. thethinman // April 23, 2018 at 1:14 pm //

    Boot lickers on one side, ass kissers on the other. Call it a draw.

  22. True Blue // April 23, 2018 at 1:57 pm //

    He’s definitely a talented player but som thing tells me it wouldn’t matter where he placed he’d still find something to complain about. But he accomplishes what he intends to do and that’s get people to respond.

  23. Carter is going to have a disappointing season. Reason being, riderfans have far too high of an expectation of this guy. They think he’s going to have games where he has 3 TD catches and 3 pick 6’s. You cannot spread players too thin at the pro level. You will see Carter play very limited on defense- probably when he’s wanting attention.
    His start last year was the equivalent of giving a spoiled child a sucker to stop him from crying.

  24. Scottsask // April 23, 2018 at 2:01 pm //

    This is all incredibly boring. Can’t wait for kickoff.

  25. Take this // April 23, 2018 at 2:19 pm //

    I wouldn’t even put Carter in the top 50. Definitely, he is athletically talented but just doesn’t put in the work to be a top receiver. He doesn’t watch film in preparation for a game. He isn’t known for blocking for other receivers. He is far to concerned with his own stats. And yet his stats are not good. Six games where he had twenty five yards or less, and that was games that he played on offence. Only caught 30% of his targets. You can’t blame that all on the quarterbacks because other receivers on the team caught a higher percentage of passes from the same quarterbacks. Other teams do not double cover him. Why would they? He will drop 70% of his passes with single coverage. If pure athleticism was all it takes, then Michael Bishop would have been the greatest quarterback the CFL has ever seen. Duron’s coach is the one who said “stats don’t lie”. Well, Duron’s stats do not put him in the top 10 players; not even in the top 50. The only reason Duron garners as much attention as he does is because he just will not shut up. Roosevelt is a much better receiver with better hands but is a quiet, classy guy who doesn’t demand attention but does his talking on the field. Much better attitude from a team perspective.

    • Great comment……rack it!!

      To be precise 30% on deep balls. That may have been unclear. My fault. Good point about Duron touting his stats & yet his fans want to ignore them. Good points all around. Hundo P.

    • Did you say “he doesn’t watch film in preparation for a game” If you are in the film/weight room with him everyday, what is a guy of your playing caliber spewing crap on a website like this?

  26. C Stephen Cassin // April 23, 2018 at 2:32 pm //

    He should have been left off the list and out of the discussion.

  27. Did you guys see who the Flames hired today? What an incredible move! Paters has work so closely with Babcock, he’s nothing but a winner, amazing!
    They should cancel the rest of the playoffs, what’s the point of winning the cup this year knowing you will have to face the Flames next year? There is no way the could celebrate.
    Look for Monahan to score 70 goals, Guadreau will be good for 60, Janakoski will get 40. Besides the obvious Stanley Cup and Conn Smyth; we will have the Hart, Richard,Norris, Vezina, Selke,Art Ross, Jack Adams trophies as well, oh how we are going destroy the league next year!!!!!!
    In Gully we trust!

      I see you know as much about hockey as you do football. that is such a ridiculous statement and I mean all of it. BTW I’m a Flames fan too.

      • Thank you, That was my point
        Just so you know, this was done to show you how obnoxious it is- this is just how rider fans should everytime there is a big acquisition

  28. Lol look at all the Haters our there!
    As the old saying goes, “Haters are gonna Hate”.
    Just keep giving Duron more material, he’s loving it. To bad Baby BO couldn’t handle all of the attention.

  29. The guys ego driven, let your numbers do your talking, your looking like a fool when you whine and cry.

    • 3rd and 1 // April 23, 2018 at 5:29 pm //

      Pete open your eyes and your eyes. Carter started 2 games at the Boundary position on defence. Instead of WR on offence. So his numbers were seriously effected.
      They should take the INT Carter did on Bo Bo little sheep. Then Carter took it all the way to the house. Carter is an all star WR and he’s also a star corner in the league. The dude is really good. Deserves to be top 5 if you ask me.

  30. Seriously? Bowman #3?! He didn’t even have 500 yards last season. What a joke. In reality Carter should be #1 as he was as the ONLY player in the league to score points on offense, defense and special teams.

    • As a Rider fan Sean, I still have to say Zylstra was a lock at #1. That guy had a hell of a season.

      • Zylstra is a MUCH better receiver than Carter. Better route runner and can actually hang onto the ball.

        That’s why Zylstra got an NFL contract and Carter was told thanks but no thanks.

      • Zylstra could be 2nd. Impressive at receiver, but since he only played one facet of the game and Carter played and scored points in 3 facets and was the only player in the league to do so, I think that puts Carter above all.

        • There were a lot of questionable names in spots to be sure. End of the day, 2018 is upon us. If this really did pi*s Carter off, I hope translates that to on field numbers this year.

        • greenenvy? // April 23, 2018 at 6:08 pm //

          / So Carter is a better receiver bevause he played DB also? How does playing DB make you a better receiver? So if you run a 100 meter & shot put, & you’re not as fast at the 100, you’re still better because you competed well in another facet? Maybe he should be an all- star DB because no other DB played receiver as well & his numbers for INT’s were on pace for 18-not his fault he had to also play receiver. Get a grip. You compare receivers to receivers. If you’re injured for 2 games or play DB for 2 games that’s irrelevant to your contributions at receiver. Maybe Reilly should get recognized for his 12 rushing TD’s & rushing stats for RB honors.

    • greenenvy? // April 23, 2018 at 6:16 pm //

      Carter is talking about the 2017 rankings going into the season. Bowman had over 1700 yds that year. Please try to keep up, Sean.

  31. C’mon…..let’s shovel the sh*t a little quicker, we’re almost at a hundred and it’s only mid afternoon!!! Must be a Duron piece. Oy vey

    • Tailgate YYC // April 23, 2018 at 4:00 pm //

      I think Mr Red has at least a third of the comments so only 65 comments that count.

  32. More concerned with his personal accolades and stats than actually winning a championship – – just what you’d expect from Crackhead Carter’s kid.

    Old man was a petulant prima donna with substance abuse problems who never won anything either. Apple sure didn’t fall far from the tree.

  33. Ernest Jackson and Chris Williams….huh?!!

  34. Anonymous // April 23, 2018 at 4:33 pm //

    That pick 6 on Rat Mitchell was the coolest
    D Carter moment ever!!
    He made that team look like a bunch of pylons! Hahaha..chokers!!!

    • oh man! lolololololololololol
      If I had a loonie for everytime a riderfan mentions that, I’d be living in Beverly Hills!
      The very people who tell us winning the Grey cup is all that matters always hand their hat on that 1 play. – hypocrisy.
      I hate to burst your bubbles, but your wins against BC, Edmonton and Calgary all came at the beginning of losing streaks for the clubs…..everyone they played were beating them, what would make you so special?

      • So the Riders started all of those losing streaks for the 3 teams you mentioned? That’s a good thing.

  35. Mr. Duron Carter is a “All World Superstar Athlete” (Duron probably shames Bolden in a 100 yard sprint he’s “All World” good). Football fans across Canada far and wide and abroad should be happy, highly appreciative he plays in the CFL.

  36. Duron Carter is #1.
    End of subject, no further comments needed. Case closed.

  37. Take this // April 23, 2018 at 4:56 pm //

    That’s like saying that Mike Reilly wasn’t the best in the league because he didn’t play on defence or special teams. If the Riders had a decent backup defensive back and Duron hadn’t gotten into a fight with an offensive coach and player, you wouldn’t have seen Carter on defence. As for special teams, Duron does not match the talent of Diontae Spencer. Actually, Duron wasn’t really missed on offence when he played DB. Only in his own mind, which of course, is filled with random thoughts of nothingness.

  38. Holy cow……did you honestly make a reference to being obnoxious ?? You’re so clueless I bet you went to your dentist to get Bluetooth.

  39. I’d like an honest answer from rider fans
    What would you rather have this season
    Win the Grey Cup
    Go 3-0 vs stamps this year have Hughes sack Bo 20 times and have him throw 6 pick 6’s to carter???????

    You aren’t allowed to say both….

  40. If the riders have any concern for there fans, the city and the province, Carter would be gone.

  41. If 3down had any concern for their readers, the CFL and the Country. You would be gone !!

  42. Greenland // April 23, 2018 at 6:55 pm //

    You might be on to something Red.

  43. Greenland // April 23, 2018 at 6:57 pm //

    I ment that red might be on to something when he said it would be the greatest Rider season ever.

    • It wouldn’t take much for it to be the best rider season ever. Have the ever reached 12 wins? If they have it hasn’t been very often.

  44. Top 50 list, Power Rankings…blah blah blah. Let’s get the season underway. What happens on the field is all that matters.

  45. Colour me green // April 23, 2018 at 8:45 pm //

    Well he is number one on 3downnation website for popularity. Just put his name in the article title and his fans from around the league come out to support him. Since he can play 4 positions, probably more, he is the best multipurpose player by far. And he gets under the skin of a troll from cowtown. Rating just went higher.
    Slow news day, just say his name. He is top 10 not 35 on list.

  46. Mostly my eyes glaze over when I see red posting. But, this time, I did a double take. It was just yesterday, when he was having trouble with his zipper, that he was headed for North Battleford on a power scooter…which died. How did he get back here…or is he “writing” from his puddled hell…uh…padded cell? Who picked him up? And where did he sit with those wet pants/depends? does his scooby still burn? uh…I meant to say: does his scooter still run?

  47. OK. Since someone brought up hockey, I’ll admit to being a Bruins fan. What does this have to do with Duron Carter? The word is “character”.
    The Bruins are known in the league to have a great bunch of guys in the locker room. And for better or worse, they’ve rid themselves of some pretty good players over that one word: “character”. They’ve signed all their young players (partly) on that very criterion.
    And while they dumped some talented players in Kessel, Seguin and Dougie Hamilton, one of the first things they’ve looked at, before and since, is trying to sign guys who fit into the locker room and contribute positively to the “character” of the team.
    Now I understand Riders fans sticking up for one of their star players. I may have even done the same, once or twice, when Carter was in Montreal. However, one disruptive, narcissistic, selfish, lazy player who receives privileged treatment, and who divides the locker room and even creates “pro” and “against” factions, dividing it further over HIM, can’t be good for team spirit and cohesiveness, intangibles that can make the difference between an also-ran and a Championship team.
    So, just a friendly word of caution from a fan of a rival, who’s been there and done that with more than one player of Carter’s “caliber”.
