Arland Bruce the third Thank you for making the CFL look like the world wrestling federation by putting on a spiderman mask after scoring a TD. What a great team player you are for acting like a clown. What a classy individual you are for respecting your opponents...
You might be Arland Bruce the 3rd; you might be Toronto's number 1 receiver; but: you are clearly, and without a doubt, a number two...
PS, can the mods STOP changing turd for third. THat is censorship!
I know I laughed when I saw it. Why are people so uptight about this stuff, as long as it doesn't get too distracting. It's not like he mooned anyone. Sheesh, people aren't happy unless they have something to belly-ache about. Big friggin deal.......
I thought it was funny. The CFL probably did to (off the record) but had to give him a fine ($5)? lol for public consumption.
Anything the CFL can do to get in the newspaper is a good thing. Especially in Toronto.
It was bad enough that the league felt that the 10-yard penalty wasn't sufficient.
Anytime someone does something to bring attention to themselves, or to try and make a highlight reel, and it costs their team yardage or points, it shows where their priorities lie. You've just scored a touchdown; all eyes and cameras are already on you. Pretend for a moment that you've been in the end zone before.
I never heard any amount, but the league could have just assessed the yardage against the Argos and then let it go, which is what I think everyone assumed they would do. They wouldn't make a statement against this sort of behaviour by fining him, and then make it a token amount like $5 or a loonie. I recall similar incidents in the past resulting in fines in the $1500 range, so I suspect it's something along those lines.
Maybe all you Arland Bruce groupies can take up a collection to pay it for him.
I hope nobody here that disagrees with the spidy moves claims that the NFL is the " no fun league". Whats the harm. This is what I am fan for. Whatever is not NFL-like. The celebration, the no-fair catch the rogue ..... etc
I (like most Argo fans) thought it was funny and Cat fans did not, which is no surprise. I suspect to see a few "Spidy" masks at the next Argo game. I'm sure it could catch on and Bruce loves throwing the ball into the crowd, aiming for a "Spidy" for sure.
The Cats would LOVE a reciever like Arland Bruce, but he wears blue so he's a "Flop, overated, etc".
