Dave’s post earlier on the new stadium at Laurier looks very good for having a CFL exhibition game or regular season game there some day .

Looks like they have loges at the top level and a party patio at the upper level end zone .

Wanadi busted and banned for PEDs.

I wonder what the Mustangs backfield will be like this season, with Edwards and Wanadi now out of the picture.

Here’s a fun flashback to when TSN used to do USports games:

Well, it didn’t take Wanadi too long to land a spot on another football team. I kinda wish the AFL and Cold Lake would acknowledge his failed PED test and at least pretend he’s trying to stay clean now.

Meet Édouard Wanadi! 🔥

Édouard is a 6’2, 210lbs Running-back out of Saint-Jerome, QC!

He played for the Western Mustangs and is excited to bring his talent to the Fighter Jets! 🙌🏻

Help us welcome Édouard Wanadi to the Fighter Jets family! 🏈

Pinto was released by the Stamps and I personally know Jackson Cooling

Pinto got into some legal troubles, but I believe those charges were recently dropped. Not sure any team will want to touch him though.

Yeah i know about the legal trouble . He was on stamps retired list but they recently released him .

Last year, looking to give back to his community and promote football, Maracle hosted a Flag Football Clinic. With help from Gee-Gees teammates, it’s on again, June 4 in Tyendinaga. The hope is there will be 200 kids ages six and up registered. The Grey Cup will also be there.

“When you’re on the reserve, it’s lacrosse and all these other sports, but you never see football,” Maracle said. “You have to go to Kingston or Belleville. I fell in love with the game very much on my own, seeing the guys play on TV and trying to replicate that process. If I’d had somebody in real life making it more real for me, I could see it seeming a lot more tangible.
