Well, it looks like the Hamilton Tiger-Cats have come down on practice roster offensive lineman Matt Morencie.
The CFL club allowed the Winnipeg Blue Bombers pluk the former Windsor Lancers tackle and guard and J.P. Metras winner off waivers Wednesday.
Morencie was involved in a strange post-game confrontation with Windsor Star reporter Bob Duff on Saturday at a Alumni Field at the University of Windsor.
Morencie first verbally abused Duff and then took the reporter's notebook, tore pages from it and tossed it the air.
Most assume the tirade was done in an effort to protect Morencie's father, Lancers head coach Mike Morencie, whom Duff had criticized in print and is in his last season of a four-year contract.
Drew Edwards, who covers the TiCats for the Hamilton Spectator, has posted on his Scratching Post Blog some comments from TiCats head coach Marcel Bellefeuille.
“It's important to represent our organization positively at every opportunity that we can. I just reiterated the point to him,” Bellefeuille said. “I think he took it to heart, he understands the situation and I'm sure if he had to do it again it probably wouldn't have happened the way it did.”
Some pondered what just how the TiCats should handle Matt's unprofessionalism.
Sending him to the 'Peg just before winter. That's punishment enough.
Although, Hamilton brass stressed to Edwards the incident and roster move are not related.
