Does Troy Westwood cross the line?
Tue, September 2, 2008

As the former Blue Bomber kicker who inspired the name 'The Banjo Bowl', does Troy Westwood go too far in his attempts to goad Saskatchewan fans?

Excerpt from a column titled Something Stinks

Could you smell that this morning? It was coming in from the West. Just about made me puke. Some kind of bizarre mixture of dirty old socks and pickle juice. Used to think only my Aunt Fay smelled like that.

Turns out my beautiful Aunt Fay, she has five of her own teeth, was just one of the many of the tens of thousands in Saskabush to carry that scent with them. They are known as the Rider Nation, and they smell like dirty old socks and pickle juice.

Westwood always reminded me of that wierd guy that would try to joke around with the group but just couldn't get it right. he comes off sounding like an idiot. Time to cut him loose and let him drift off into obscurity.

an immature piece from Troy...but love the Bomber Rider rivalry and his attempts to keep it rolling...lame though they may be...his hit/miss mark on writing is as soft as his field goal kicking percentage.

This article barely passes as literate, and fails horribly as wit. What was the point?

I disagree with Murray Fischer's comments. Westwood was never talented.

Thank you Mr. Westwood for serving as a reminder of what can happen if you let your kid eat paint chips

A pathetic cry for attention from a person who has been irrelevant to the CFL for the last ten years. If the Bombers had any class they would drop the "Banjo Bowl" name for this weekend's game and cut all ties with Westwood. And, by the way, "Saskabush" is a nickname for Saskatoon, not Saskatchewan.

Hey Saskatchewan, you smell like poopy pants! Wow, great insult there Troy. How many weeks did it take you to come up with that?
Wes, 2008-09-02 15:22:16

Well, as a Rider fan, I wasn't insulted - just embarrassed for him. He makes himself sound like an idiot. One of the most unintelligent rants I've ever read.

It's just juvenile garbage from someone who likes getting attention by trying to push people's buttons. I haven't heard someone use the insult "you smell" since the playground in third grade. Is this what passes for journalism in the Sun nowadays?

Wow! Saying Rider fans stink is like standing in a meat packing plant and saying it. Did he watch the Labour Day "Classic" on Sunday? If you ask me, it's the Bombers who stink...if you catch my "drift".
