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.

I think it points to his character in how he criticizes people from Saskatchewan in the first part and then sounds like he wants to sleep with Jon Ryan in the second part.

Do you suppose he has any idea where Ryan is from? I'm surprised he can stand the smell.

Most journalists who do things just to "stir the pot" are a touch more literate and somewhat less transparent.

Crossed the line? Who cares? It's sad that we can encourage a person who turned from a nutcase (but talented) kicker into a bag of sour grapes and give him a platform for foolishness like this.

Westwood does not have a line to cross--he's a rotten kid afloat in space somewhere. My concern is the total lack of class and pride in an organization that would publish such incredible crap.

Ran from Kelowna.

The Sun has to be accountable for what their reporters put down in print. If Westwood is trying to be funny, he is missed the uprights yet again. It is time that this little experiment end. Fire him now!

Troy, all of us stubblejumbers out in Gopherland love you! Keep up the good work. You're better than most of those 'real' writers who work for the Toronto-is-the-centre-of-the-universe media, anyways.

Who cares what a mediocre loser thinks anyway? He has a pretty big mouth for a kicker.

Look at Westwood and consider the source.
