Stamps' Lewis not a fan of boos
Nik Lewis wants a word with fans of the Calgary Stampeders.
"If you are a fan of us, you are in this with us -- booing us is like booing yourself," said the receiver about Saturday night's 24-19 loss to the Edmonton Eskimos during which the Stampeders offence was booed off the field for lackadaisical play in the third quarter.
"Your part is to be loud during the game and give us a home-field advantage, regardless of what the score is. Your job is to be loud and give us an advantage."
Offensively, the Stamps struggled at times and were solid in others during the CFL contest.
Straight out of the gate from halftime, they went two-and-out for three straight series and heard the boo-birds from the McMahon Stadium fans, which seemed to wake the offence up.
Regardless, it shook up some members of the Stamps offence.
"What if I get upset because I don't think stuff is going the right way? What if start walking routes? That's just like you booing.
"I don't start walking routes because I'm in it. I would never boo a team that I root for. I'm a fan too, and I would never boo a team I root for because I know they work hard."
