Oct 13th is Anthony Calvillo day

As announced at the Alouette preview party A.C. will be honoured on Oct 13th at Molson Stadium

They didn't mention if they were going to retire his jersey number but I assume it'll be part of the ceremony.

Marc Trestman returning July 11 to be honored is a great move also. Didn't see that coming.

A great night all around at the als party and the new food to be offered tasted delish.

The new foods were quite good...and Trestman will be back on nuit blanche

Why waste an "event". They can honour him tun and have a retirement ceremony at another game, perhaps along with Cahoon.

Effectivement. Les Alouettes avaient honoré Cahoon sans retirer son chandail. Ils peuvent en faire autant avec Calvillo.

Selon Mathieu Boulay dans le 'Ournal, le chandail de Calvillo sera retiré le 13 octobre.

Je crois que Mark Weightman commence à imprimer sa marque chez les Alouettes, et c'est tant mieux!

Weightman`s big initiative has been to get the team closer to the Quebec football community, particularly with the coaches clinic. This will only pay dividends down the road.

And this was in Herb`s Troy Smith story on Sat.:

"Between 16,000 and 17,000 season tickets, it’s believed, have been sold — not a drastic change from a year ago. But the organization has dramatically improved its sponsorship base."

On the website you can see there is a 7 person Corporate Partnerships dept.

Good news after a disappointing season and with AC retiring.

Perhaps between Troy Smith and Marsh Madness, fans are too curious about the new generation of Alouettes QBs to back away. :slight_smile:

Or are not as "fair weather" as the ROC claims.
