Each BC Lions player had a newspaper clipping from the calgary herald waiting for them as they arrived for work Monday in Surrey.
Highlighted were quotes from Calgary mouthpiece Nik Lewis, who chirped about the Lions not wanting to face the Stampeders in the Western Final, and how they were probably sitting around singing "Kumbaya" when Saskatchewan took the lead late in Sunday's semi-final in Calgary.
Lewis also pretty much guaranteed a Stamps victory over the Lions by saying, "next week, for a change, we're not supposed to win. but guess what? We will."
Geroy Simon says that's Lewis, doing what he does best, "talking-trash."
Travis Lulay says he'll be good to go for Sunday's game, saying he's as healthy as he's going to be at this time of year.
Arland Bruce also says he's ready to play having fully recovered from the concussion he suffered at the end of September.
The Lions also report that ticket sales for Sunday's Western Final are now over 36-thousand.
