CALGARY - Nik Lewis is wondering aloud if hes a forgotten man in the Calgary Stampeders offence.

Following a 32-19 loss to the B.C. Lions Saturday night at McMahon Stadium, Lewis complained openly about only getting three catches for 44 yards.

I havent had a ball thrown my way in the second half two weeks in a row, Lewis said. If we can watch film and if Im doing something wrong, I need to correct it. I went against the same guy in the second half as the first half.

I get three in the first half, just like last week, and then I disappear. I dont know what to say. I dont know what I need to do better.

If Im doing something wrong, then come tell me Im doing something wrong. I have (Lions DB) Korey Banks coming up to me after the game and saying, Tell him thanks for not throwing you the ball. People see what I do in this league. At least make an attempt.

Asked if hes going to address his frustration with the coaching staff, Lewis said, No.

Nothing is going to change, Lewis said. Ive already addressed it. If I dont have the ability to go out and get seven or eight catches a week, then Im not who I thought I was.
