Regarding K Herbert we had discussed about the right thing to do hold him to his contract and have a disgruntled palyer on the team or relase hm to try the NFL if he does not make it he would then come back to play for the Bombers. Now many of you stated this does not happen or refuse to believe it does not happen, Well here it is guys talk about a classy organization.
Terrance Wilkens a member of the Calgary Stampeders is being allowed to do that.
Statment by Ted Hellard President of the Stampeders:
Terrance has not retired and yes he will not be in camp....T wilks has an opportunity in the NFL and the stamps will allow him to pursue this opportunity he has expressed clearly to us that when he completes this opportunity he will return to the stamps...in the meantime we have a minimum of four returners in camp including Allen and Stallings as well as Williams, Marshall and others....
You see that is the right thing to do! When an organization cares about their players the players care about the organization. Remember I mentioned David Allen going to the NFL prior to the Western final against Edmonton last year. Yes he had it in his contract to leave but he did come back this year to sign a three year deal. Thats what I am talking about. Its all about the HORSE the Team!
