Dunigan signed Queen's QB Tommy Denison to a contract in 2004,
when he was coach and G.M of the Calgary Stampeders.
"I was getting my ass ripped by (Stampeders owner)
Michael Feterik every day,'' recalls Dunigan.
" He'd say, 'Who's paying that kid?'
"I'd say 'Well, you are.'
Dunigan drops his voice into an impersonation of Feterik.
" 'Why? He's never going to play!'
"I believed," Dunigan continues, "in trying to develop Canadian talent
and making a position for him on the practice roster.
I couldn't put him on the (regular) roster,
because I would have been fired.
I was working for my job and trying to keep my head
above water with him on the practice roster.
I wanted to be a standup guy and live by
what I'd been talking about for 20-some odd years."
