Good read... if they do do something I hope it does not cost us yardage!
HAMILTON, Ont. -- There's something about Ivor Wynne Stadium that seems to bring out the artistic side of Arland Bruce III.
The all-star slotback has celebrated scoring touchdowns there by donning a Spiderman mask he had tucked in his pants, and last year shed his helmet, shoulder pads and uniform before lying down in the end zone in a mock tribute to the late Michael Jackson. He was fined by the CFL in both instances but adding insult to injury for Hamilton Tiger-Cats fans was the celebrations came with Bruce as a member of the hated Toronto Argonauts.
Only goes to prove Bruce is still an egotistical idiot that I have no respect for outside his athletic abilities. I want him on the team but if he pulls crap like he has in the past I won't be happy. I thought we finally got through to him that its team first second and last and there is no place for his nonsense. If the old Bruce is back I hope he leaves town ASAP
I was one of those people who were leery of Bruce being brought in given his reputation, but I have the ability to give people 2nd chances and ABIII has proven himself to me.. he is top notch talent and has been well behaved since coming to the Cats!!
If they do do something I am confident it won't hurt the team!!
I'm quite certain if AKT had his way gameday experience would be like going to a funeral. No music, no endzone dances and no excitement. So what a guy does a dance in the endzone and little rap music is played. It is fun and gets fans into the games. How a tastful endzone dance has ever hurt anyone is beyond me. Lighten up a little and enjoy life and not be so disgruntled. Today's game is what Ticat fans and players live for.
I think people need to stop ganging up on AKT. The man likes what he likes. I like what he doesn't like. But there's no need to start calling him stupid, old coot, bitter, whatever. These things strike me as personal attacks, and I think they're supposed to be forbidden on this board. Or is this just good-natured ribbing and I'm not picking up on it?
I rarely say anything negative about another poster, but I am sick of people attacking Arland Bruce. Bruce is the best thing we have had here in years. If someone attacks him, I, for one, will risk discipline from moderators for calling the guy out. I didn't call AKT stupid although I wanted to. I said his comments were stupid.
And if anyone is an old coot it's me, but even I don't mind some celebration in the endzone.
I respect Bruce as a player and a leader who is not afraid to speak his mind when it's necessary. Remember, it was Bruce who said Glen should be the starter last year. You can't fault the guy when he proved to be 100 per cent correct.
