Hollerin' Hank

The fingerpointing started in the Cowtown camp on Saturday.

'Screamin' Hank' replaced 'Smilin' Hank' for at least one brief spell on the sidelines. Calgary quarterback Henry (Smilin' Hank) Burris threw behind his intended target, a wide-open Ken-Yon Rambo in the end zone, and was intercepted late in the loss to the Eskimos in Edmonton. Right after the play, Burris and Rambo were screaming at each other at the bench on national TV. Backup QB Danny McManus finally had to step between the two who were clearly blaming each other for the foul-up.

"What you see is what you get," Rambo told the Calgary Sun. "We ran the play in practice over and over and completed it. We just couldn't complete it again at the end of the game."

Receiver Jeremaine Copeland, who had just caught a long bomb at the Edmonton five, stomped off the field in disgust after Eskimo defensive back Shannon Garrett picked off the pass that preserved Edmonton's 18-14 victory.

'BOTH OUR FAULTS'

"I don't know what happened," Burris told the Calgary Herald. "I'll have to look at the film. It was both (our faults)."

Calgary head coach Tom Higgins attempted to play peacemaker the day after.

"Two very competitive men who want to win in the worst way just vented," he said. "They were able to get it out. They let some steam off and now, hopefully, we will be better for it."

Burris, by the way, has been bashed all over Calgary ever since the incident.

HASHMARKS: DE Joe Montford is reportedly willing to accept a salary of about $80,000 per annum to return to Hamilton.

Edmonton's new DE, Andre Sommersell, is known as 'Mr. Irrelevant' because he was the last pick of the 2004 NFL draft ... Toronto Sun football reporter Perry Lefko has been hired as the CFL's new communications director, effective July 4.
