Win-Wynn situation for former Blue QB

KIRK PENTON -- Winnipeg Sun

, Last Updated: 8:11 AM ET

Spergon Wynn had something to get off his chest, he did it, and now he's moved on.

Wynn unleashed a profanity-laced tirade last October, saying the fact that the Winnipeg Blue Bombers never gave him a chance to take a single snap was "ridiculous."

In February, the quarterback was traded to the Toronto Argonauts for safety Mike Crumb (since retired) and a draft pick.

Tonight, he will make his first CFL start since 2003 against the Bombers at Canad Inns Stadium.

"It worked out good for me," Wynn said yesterday after greeting about a dozen of his former teammates with big hugs. "I'm in a good place, and that's another reason why I don't really have any ill feelings (towards the Bombers).

"I felt like they treated me right at the end. They gave me an opportunity to get out there and get some action."

Wynn is starting tonight because Damon Allen is out with a broken finger.

THE WAIT IS OVER: The arbitration case involving holdout linebacker Kyries Hebert and the Bombers will begin Tuesday in Winnipeg.

Meanwhile, Hebert responded yesterday to a report that said he had cashed the $25,000 bonus cheque the Bombers sent to him after they claimed him off waivers in April.

Hebert wrote on his website that the cheque was cashed in error by someone in his advisor's office. He said he only learned of the transaction recently and has already repaid the money.

LATE HITS: As of 4 p.m. yesterday, 24,542 tickets had been sold for tonight's game ... Bombers head coach Doug Berry's father Russ has flown in from New Hampshire to catch his son's first home game as Bombers boss ... Fans are asked to bring a non-perishable food item tonight for the Purolator Tackle Hunger program.
