VANCOUVER -- Rob Murphy blew his top under the dome.

After a week of trash talk between the B.C. offensive lineman and Eskimo Rahim Abdullah, Murphy lost his head against Adam Braidwood in the fourth quarter.

After pinning Braidwood on the ground for several seconds, the pair got to their feet and continued to battle.

"(Braidwood) tries to get at my throat and that is not going to happen with me," said Murphy.

"I lost my head. He took a swing and me and I took a swing at him."

That led to Murphy getting booted out of the game to cheers from adoring fans.

"I knocked him down a few times, knocked his helmet off and he got frustrated," remarked Braidwood.

ALSTON STAYING POSITIVE

Chuck Alston doesn't have a negative bone in his body.

A healthy scratch for the second straight regular season game, the third year Edmonton Eskimo still found something positive about staying home for last night's tilt at B.C. Place.

"That means I get the car to myself - that is a positive," said the defensive tackle, who was referring to sharing an automobile with his three roommates - Ron Warner, Stanford Samuels and Tyler Ebell - who are all starters with the Green and Gold.
