I just heard that Quick Six, the Stampeders' touchdown horse will not be allowed at the Grey Cup Game.
This is a very poor decision by the CFL, Grey Cup Committee and Rogers Centre.
The Stampeders horse is an iconic part of CFL History and for it not to be allowed at the 100th Grey Cup is ridiculous.
The horse has been at every Grey Cup with the Stamps. Who can forget the picture of offensive lineman Rocco Romano sitting on the beautiful white horse holding the Grey Cup after their win in Winnipeg? Olympic Stadium and BC Place all allowed him to be there.
The young lady riding the horse has rode for 19 years at Stamp games. She is not a city slicker turned cowboy that can't control a horse. Quick Six is also used to crowds. He thinks the crowds are there to see him!
Come on Toronto, you know what's right. This is CANADA''s Celebration. Don't exclude an important part of CFL history from the big party.
