No point re-writing stories. But Ben Sankey, after deemed fit enough to play, was released by Calgary. Turns out Winnipeg doesn’t want to pay anything for another QB even though they may need the help…. Hopefully someone gives him a shot cause he could put up some numbers.

The Stamps cut their roster down today and some key names have gone which may leave Stamps fans scratching their heads. The big names were mostly on the defensive side. On the defensive line Terrance Patrick is no longer in the mix, once highly touted under the Creehan regime. Same…

On June 18th the Calgary Sun continued their eighth grade media coverage by kicking up fuss over new tail-gaiting rules at McMahon Stadium. The article was essentially complaining the the Stamps were going to crack down on the ‘fun’ for the sake of a few drunks. I’ve been to all…

It appears that the two blowout losses have claimed the first casualties–all on defence. This has come as a bit of a surprise to some, but then again, when you invest all your money in wide receivers you can’t exactly let them go. It appears the first to go was…

Here is a recap of what’s gone down roster wise, lots of moves were made, some very tough. The Stamps depleted O-line was reinforced through a trade that saw Canadian offensive lineman Rob Lazeo and a 2009 conditional draft pick come from Saskatchewan in exchange for standout second year import…
