Sometimes football's an unfair business, says ex-B.C. Lion Bobby Singh.

Singh signed a four-year deal in 2006 but was released last Thursday, a week after Rob Murphy became B.C.'s highest-paid offensive lineman.

Singh wanted to take a big pay cut to help fit under the salary cap, "but I think they already made up their mind.

"I would've liked to stay a Lion and retire a Lion," Singh said.

A shoulder injury sidelined him for six 2006 games. Singh was a Calgary Stampeder for two seasons after winning a Super Bowl ring in 2000 with the St. Louis Rams and the 2001 XFL championship with the Los Angeles Xtreme.

Singh will serve the rest of his Richmond school board term.
