CFL Talking Tough With Chunky
Riders d-lineman Marcus "Chunky" Adams wants to wear pink tomorrow as a sign of supporting breast cancer. Its a disease his mother has fought. The CFL does not want its players wearing pink on the field for some inane reason. Adams had said he would take the fine and wear pink shoelaces for tomorrow's game. Rawlco Radio then come in and said they would pay the fine if one came. During his meeting with the media before tomorrow's game, Rider coach Ken Miller said in speaking with Brendan Taman, the league has said that if Adams is wearing something pink, he will not be allowed on the field. If he somehow does get on the field wearing pink, he will be sent off the field for three plays and he will be fined. This has made Adams change his stance as he knows he can't be off the field when his teammmates need him, This is completely ridiculous on behalf of the CFL. I don't care if its Chunky Adams, Henry Burris, Anthony Calvillo or whoever. This is something that must be changed and changed yesterday. I can't wait to hear the explanation from the commissioner on this one.
