Robertson calling it quits

Sometimes a fellow wishes as if he could be split into a few pieces, like when you’re trying to assemble the goods for our Blitz! advance package for the Lions-Als game and forget to follow up on a piece of news on Team 1040 last night.
The flagship radio rightsholder had on Jamal Robertson, and to the surprise of absolutely nobody around the Lions, the 34-year-old said he will retire following the season. Considering he won’t be playing Saturday and may not do so in the playoffs, it’s possible therefore to suggest the good-natured tailback has already played his final game.
“I’ve had a good run. I’ve been playing a long time,? the former Calgary back told the station. “I started winning a Grey Cup [in 2001] with coach Wally [Buono]. I’m looking for the fairy-tale ending.?
Robertson will by no means be the only veteran not be returning next year, just the first to make it official. He was definitely a class act in the manner in which he handled his transition/demotion to/behind Andrew Harris this year. The plan of the Lions all along was to move away from Robertson. Harris simply accelerated the process this year.

My hat's off to the guy... since coming over to the Leo's he has been nothing but professional. All the best going forward and here's to your storybook ending!
