I’ve been waiting for Bomber fans to complain about the clothesline hit that Keith Stokes took in the game against Calgary the other day, but so far nothing.
Funny, since it was exactly the same as the one by Devonte Peterson last year that had them screeching so loudly about the safety of their player. They were insisting that Peterson be suspended, or expelled from the league, or imprisoned, or executed, or something. Yet now they haven’t made a sound about an identical hit to the same player.
What could the difference be, I wonder?
Could it be that, unlike in the Hamilton game last year, where Stokes fumbled, setting up a touchdown which may have cost the Bombers the game, that in the Calgary game Stokes shook off the hit and ended up getting a decent return?
Are they saying it’s only a dirty hit if it costs your team a score?
