WINNIPEG - As far as Paul LaPolice is concerned, the “plank” is going overboard.

The Blue Bomber head coach wasn’t happy with the touchdown celebration by his defence in Hamilton, Friday, and has let the players know it.

“Because if it gets too extravagant, we can get flagged for it,” LaPolice said as his team returned to practice, Monday. “We don’t want to be individuals, we want to be a team.”

The celebration saw members of the defence fall flat as boards in the end zone after Alex Suber’s fourth-quarter interception return for a touchdown.

The Bombers, who weren’t penalized on the play, had been trying out the move in practice.

“I did it with them one day on the field,” LaPolice said. “They all fell to the ground, so I fell to the ground with them. But I didn’t know what it was.”

Asked if he handed out fines for the move, the coach was coy.

“We had a long conversation about that with all the boys,” he said. “Maybe for pick sixes, maybe I’ll have to make an agreement with ’em.”
