Ottawa RedBlacks quarterback Henry Burris took in his first Ottawa Fury FC match Sunday and liked what he saw.

While Ottawa would lose a hard-fought game 1-0 to the New York Cosmos, the veteran CFLer was impressed by the quality of play and the effort and had some motivational words for the Fury squad.

"They played their butts off and you could tell they wanted it so bad," said Burris, who just a few days earlier felt that same need to put on a good show in front of a huge crowd. "They have a long season and the talent and they just to settle down and play the game they've played since they were kids and play together as a team. It will all come together for them."
