Tragic News in Calgary

It has just be confirmed that former Stampeder broadcaster, Billy Powers and his wife were found murdered in their home this morning. Billy was a voice of the Stampeders for decades and was a great friend of the CFL. :frowning:

Very sad news and condolences if true! :thup:

Terrible news. Bill was an institution in Calgary for decades.

I am an Eskimo fan but am also a long time Stampeder season ticket holder. I knew Billy well, he was great guy, great story teller and a very funny man. He will be greatly missed.

I always listened to the games when I was out of town and listened to Bill Powers. Most Recently he was selected to lead the “Ride for Dad” as our honorary “Road Captain”. He will be missed!

A Sun story suggests police suspect they know who is responsible for the murders.
