The Bombers were unimpressed with some of the Argos' actions during Saturday's game, and they plan to talk to the CFL about it.

"Let's just say they have a handful of players there that need to be addressed, but that's not my business," head coach Mike Kelly said. "All I know is that I worry about the safety of my own players, and I worry about the purity of the game of this league.

"They have a few players that do things that are just unacceptable in any realm of sport."

Saturday's clash was a chippy affair, and the Bombers were not happy specifically with how quarterback Michael Bishop was treated.

Bishop, meanwhile, got a little uncomfortable with Argos defensive tackle Adriano Belli grabbing his rear end.

"I know that he does that to every quarterback," Bishop said. "One time is OK, but that third, fourth or fifth time, it kind of gets to you.

"... That's not the worst that he's done, so I was glad it was just a butt touch."

OTIS SPARKS THE O: Bombers wide receiver Otis Amey had six catches for 118 yards in his CFL debut, which put him in a select group of people who have had instant success.

"It was unbelievable," Amey said. "A lot of people get that chance and they don't make the most of that opportunity.

"I felt like I did make the most of the opportunity, and hopefully we can keep it going with Edmonton coming in next week."

Kelly said the entire receiving corps is the reason why the Bombers had their best passing game of the season.

"We caught passes," he said. "We had a receiving corps that caught balls and made plays after they made the catch."

MORAL SUPPORT: Kelly was happy to get the home fans a victory on Saturday night.

"We're appreciative of the 22,000 that were there," he said. "There was one guy that told me I still sucked, but there were 21,999 that were out there cheering and yelling."

LATE HITS: Newly acquired defensive end Odell Willis suffered a quadriceps injury against the Argos and won't play Friday. He will be replaced in the starting lineup by Phillip Hunt, and either slotback Terrence Edwards (concussion) or wide receiver Titus Ryan will take his roster spot ... The Bombers won the time of possession battle on Saturday for only the third time this season ... Fred Reid has slipped to third in the CFL rushing race ... The Bombers return to the practice field today at 3 p.m.
