be the Sisters of the the old China clippers funny Bone aint what it used to have you noticed its the two clubs that Are run by coaches that Are causing All the trouble he complained during a

defensive Back Chris monday it was receiver Larry Slick and it want just what Willis it was what he in now the highest paid wide receiver in the Willis proudly boasted to the press conference called

Calgary weve sold out our red and White weve sold out our radio advertising and weve got everything on sort of an upbeat he our season ticket sales Are projected to be ahead of last were ahead in All these but the Way and Ottawa Are spending Money they could blow the whole league out of the is it possible the Lions new pm thinks the leagues Competition Cap is spelled Kapp maybe that his Kwong
