Was just watching the wonderful re-broadcast of the bombers arriving back to Winnipeg to be greeted by hundreds of cheering fans.
This should’ve been a wonderful statement for how important a Grey Cup victory should be for each city lucky enough to win the game.
However an event occurred which marred this otherwise wonderful celebration. For what seemed to be for the upteenth time and what has sadly become a yearly ritual, The Grey Cup itself had come apart into 2 pieces.
The league was supposed to ensure that such things would not happen again, but here we are again.
The time is come for the league to ensure that the original trophy does not come detached from the lower base
I REALLY like the idea of the huge belt as a prize for the teams and fans to manhandle. There’s nothing to break. The cup can still be awarded of course, but it’s the belt that would get passed around.
According to TSN radio Hamilton is that the Cup is purposely built a certain way so it can come apart. The welder who is in Winnipeg that fixed the last 2 times did the job but its not meant to stay intact. why they chose this apparently is to protect the original engraving in the mound of the bottom of the top part.
