Post Labour Day classic weekend and now many of us are turning our attention to the Banjo Bowl this weekend in Winnipeg. As a Rider fan it was nice to see a win over the Bombers. This led to some tension amongst fans, as one could imagine. I know Bomber fans…they’re fun, good people who love their team just like Roughrider fans love the green and white. The Bomber “fans” who decided to allegedly punch Gainer and allegedly spit on a Rider player ARE NOT true Bomber fans. They are an embarrassment to REAL Bomber fans. They don’t represent what the Blue and Gold is all about, which is about professional football, entertainment, family fun, and pride just like the Riders and every other team out there.
Let’s remember when we go to another stadium that we represent our home, our province and our favourite teams and we must do that with grace and dignity. Don’t resort to spitting and punching. I just hope us Rider fans who are headed to Winnipeg this weekend show the same respect that the TRUE Bomber fans did on Sunday in our stadium.
Good luck Riders!
