Winnipeg native and B.C. Lions running back Andrew Harris is never afraid to say what's on his mind when it comes to his Twitter account.

When the Lions traded controversial defensive tackle Khalif Mitchell to the Toronto Argonauts during the off-season, he wrote, "Good riddance."

And when Bombers defensive back Alex Suber delivered a low hit on Chad Kackert that knocked the Argos running back out of the lineup for four to six weeks, Harris once again chimed in with his opinion, calling Suber's tackle "dirty."

That didn't go over very well with the Bombers, who wanted the league to penalize Harris for making such a public accusation about one of its players. Nothing ever came of it, and the Bombers now say it's water under the bridge.

"I didn't see (the Tweet)," Suber said. "Somebody told me."

Suber stands by his hit on Kackert.

"I was just playing football," he said.
