Football League have the ability to draw fans to their edge of their seats the way Winnipeg Blue Bomber tailback Charles Roberts can do this Its sweltering hot last Friday night and Bomber linebacker Ryland Wickman desperately needs a swig of Gatorade and spot to sit after another dominating defensive series against the Toronto his chest heaving and the sweat cascading down his hes standing on the sidelines jockeying for a good spot to see I do his magical Hes just so fun to said as the Bombers completed final preparations for tonights match up with the Hamilton at Canad Inns Stadium When I come off the field usually I go sit down on the bench somewhere to catch my but when hes out there Ill stand on the sideline to watch just to see what kind of stuff hes Im glad I dont have to go out there and tackle He has a way of mak ing people look silly out Wickman has seen more of Roberts than just about and he still doesnt get tired of his The two were teammates at Sacramento State and it

leaves them untan gling their feet as the little back zooms You dont even feel him going by said Bomber guard Mike Charlies so when can have a hole created then have it close down and hell still manage to get through He can make his way through a lot of traffic without even get ting Weve got a great combination of backs here with different styles Mike Troy Wade Miller but Charlies the most the most explosive the most spectacular guy of the according to fans can only expect more of the same against plus next week and I like it that people respect the fact that if Im on the field and I get the ball in my hands it could be like the greatest show on that I could take it 70 said Thats how I feel if I touch the no matter what defence theyre in or what happened the play I could Doug
