I would like 2 personally take the time to thank each and everyone of you have supported the bluebomber orginization and myself over the years. that support has been greatly appreciated. I will miss winnipeg greatly as i have many friends on the team and in the community. When i came to winnipeg eight years ago i would have never imagined being there for so long but it has truly been a great experience. So again I say thank u!.
Now I am sure you all are intersted as to know what my feelings are on the whole trade thing. first of all I am sad 2 go but am excited about the oppurtunity of playing somewhere, where i think my hard work, determination, and love of football will be appreciated. the natural reaction for me would be to be enraged, and ordinarily I would have been considering what i have done for that orginization. I am not however because of the events leading up to the trade. brendan called me into his office aboutg eight o clock monday night and as i got to the stadium doug berry and i pulled into the stadium parking lot at the same time. Once he figured out it was me, he mysteriously pulled out of the parking lot and dissappeared. For a man to have publicly claimed that the reason for trading me is because i had lost a step how come he couldn't face? How come he ran off like a coward instead of facing me man to man and telling me what he felt. I played as hard or harder for him than anyone on that team in his years there and that is how he treated me in the end. All i have to say 2 that is he got rid of me and he probably doesn't realize that he is next and they don't trade coaches. I will not publicly disrespect the team that i have loved for so many years like they did me but i just had 2 say that again i say thank u for ur support
