Interesting articles about the defence talking about Swaggerville in the FP.
Bombers defensive end Odell Willis, the self-proclaimed mayor of Swaggerville and its loudest spokesman this season, said the whole concept of Swaggerville is being misunderstood.
“I’m not sick of Swaggerville, I’m sick of everyone making it out to be more than it is. The T-shirts was just a way for all of us to interact with the fans. This is a fan-happy league and we’re a community-owned team and we were just trying to come up with a way to interact with the fans. That’s all we were trying to do. It wasn’t anything more than that.”
But while the players plan to dial down all the Swaggerville talk this week, they're hopeful the concept will live on in the hearts -- and throats -- of fans.
“We only did it as a way of interacting with our fans,” says Johnson. "We’re having a good season and our fans are loving it, so why not get the fans involved, because they help us out.
“They’re like our 13th man on the field – even though we don’t like to call them that after what happened to Saskatchewan.”
