Lemon ain't talkin'

TORONTO - Cleo Lemon has never been big on talk.

Now he’s not talking at all.

The Argonauts’ media department informed reporters on Thursday that the Argonauts quarterback would not be doing any more interviews leading up to Sunday’s East Division final.

Not that he says a lot even when he is talking. On the CFL’s scale of colourful players, Lemon is beige light. Most of the answers tend to be the same regardless of the question.

You know: “It’s a team game.”

“We’re giving 110%.”

“It’s a matter of execution.”

Yadda. Yadda.

Maybe it’s a residual of his NFL tenure where media consultants teach players to become experts at saying something while at the same time revealing nothing. Perhaps he just doesn’t enjoy talking. Perhaps he doesn’t see it as part of the job. In any case, he told the club’s publicity reps that he hasn’t been asked anything new in two weeks. So, he’s shutting it down. Doesn’t see the point.
