Anderson Up To His Old Tricks

From the National Post

The Hamilton Tiger-Cats have passed on a report to the Canadian Football League alleging that Montreal Alouettes defensive back Dwight Anderson spat at fans following Friday night’s game at Ivor Wynne Stadium.

“We have not filed a formal complaint, we have simply let the league know that there has been a security report that alleges Dwight Anderson spit on a fan [or fans],” said Ticats president Scott Mitchell in a statement. “We have a responsibility to the fans when a report like this is filed and will work with the league to investigate it. At this point, we are not ‘alleging’ that Anderson spit on anybody, just passing along information from the stadium and Ticats security staff.”

The Ticats beat the Alouettes 34-26 handing the defending Grey Cup champions their second straight defeat.

Anderson denied spitting on fans in a post-game interview with the Hamilton Spectator.

“Nah, man. That’s crazy. What else are they going to blame me for?” Anderson said.
