Talk about a career-killing moment. On CFL.ca's front page news today Winnipeg's Bob Irving reports big-time unhappiness in the person of one Alex Brink, who has apparently lost his "starting" role to the other backup, Joey Elliott.("Elliott now at the helm of Bombers' offense" http://www.cfl.ca/article/irving-elliott)
The Bomber play-by-play guy quotes Brink as saying, "Blind-sided is a good word to describe my reaction. You dream of being a starting quarterback in professional football and it's disappointing when it's taken away from you."
So, with the Bombers sitting at 1-5, Brink is somehow under the illusion he should be the undisputed starting QB simply because the number one guy is injured? Whoa. What planet, Mr. Brink? A default starting role is just that ... It's not something earned through performance.
Brink just undermined his own best interests by shooting his mouth off to reporters at a real bad time in the Bombers' 2012 campaign. What a selfish idiot.
