...Nice little trip down memeory lane, cfl/hist.....I remember them all....Reading about mini-Mack hits home....I can recall , a friend and i ,going to a party on Henderson Hwy. where Mack had an apt.....He was definitely 'out-there' with the 'weed'...I preferrred to have a beer myself...but hey everyone to his own...When Lunsford (Bombers gm) found out that Herron was smoking the funny stuff...he didn't think it was 'funny' and cut Mini Mack...The law was a lot tougher in those days and the Bombers were having none of the extra-curricular activities of Herron...He sure was a big loss...I can remember him carrying huge d lineman on his back into the end zone...When he smelled the goal-line.he wouldn't be denied..all 5ft. 5'" of him....Terrific little player of a long-gone day... :slight_smile: I believe he finished his career in the states somewhere....strange,... considering the reason he was dropped by the BigBlue ... :roll:

Sort of a Pinball-like player (or Pinball was like Herron.......).

Papa wasn't Herron released at the same time as a receiver, Jim Thorpe, for the same reason?

....no ....I believe it was Bernie Ruoff our kicker....The hammer liked him ..seemed they didn't mind his smokin' and signed him to finish a pretty good career...mistake Bombers....

I can't remember Thorpe getting into trouble with the brass... he was pretty wild as well....I could be wrong though... :roll:

Hate to say it papa, but I was right and you weren't..........

..you WERE right MadJack......couldn't remember Thorpe being involved....but those are the facts....(memory banks are clouding a bit)... :lol:

And when asked why 2 of their best were being released, the Bomber brass explained, "they stunk the JOINT out". :lol:
