CALGARY - After 44 seasons and 13 different coaching stops across the continent, you'd think Rich Stubler would be set in his ways.

Not even close.

The new Calgary Stampeders defensive co-ordinator, who was fired by the B.C. Lions after two seasons last December, lets his players be themselves within the confines of the defence, something that attracted Josh Bell, a former Leos defensive back, when he hit the free-agent market in February.
