    Attention My 2 cents.

    My worst play as a pro, in hind sight I should have filed it away and taken his head off next game. If all goes well I will still get that chance. With that being said I will ALWAYS be there for my team. B.O.N.E that means everything to me. #77

    At least 77 showed positive emotion not like that twit Maccioa who hugged Mass.

    Kudos for standing up and admitting it. I'd expect nothing less.

    AJ - thanks. Hope you get to play next week and that you have a great game.

    I think most diehard Eskies fans on this board understand why you did what you did. To me, going for someone's knee on the last play of the game when the QB is taking a knee is far worse than kicking at the "offender" when he is on the ground. Hopefully the CFL will stand up and finally take issue with those players that choose to cross the line and dish out dirty hits like the one we saw from Ralph last night.
    Go Eskies!

    I think it was out of sure frustration. A.J is a heart and soul guy and the Esks D played their butts off in the second half. They did everything the could to give the team a chance to come back in the second half and win.
    Remember winning is not enough according to Len Rhodes, President of a professional sports team.

    Re: My 2 cents.

    I still think AJ is a great player, and he's not dirty. It's football...I was moved to linebacker this year at my high school, and now I understand better the defensive mindset. What AJ does on the field is exactly what I try to do when I go out and play.

    That said, I don't condone what AJ did on the final play, but he's owning up to his mistake and I know he's a professional...my message to him is to just keep on playing like he's been playing...we need that aggressiveness back on the defense.

    I'm responding to the post'"owning up"...Do I have to explain the meaning of that to you?

    Good on AJ for admitting his mistake.

    You're also taking his other words too litterally. Guys go out and try to "take somebodies head off" in every football game. It doesn't neccesarily mean they want to deliberatly injure them, but rather crush them with a legal hit. I think AJ meant the later with his words.

    I would have rather seen AJ pull Ralph to his feet, and tell him just that, when this all went down. Choosing to kick him was a poor decision, and likely to cost him a game check and/or a fine.

    Exactly Heywood.....I'd also like to say that unlike others who have been guilty of recent incidents lately. AJ has at least manned up for his act.

    The kick was the wrong way to go about it.

    Thanks AJ, you didn't have to come on here and say it, but it is appreciated.

    That kick last night really surprised me. I've always looked at you as a very intense and quality player and thankfully plays like last night aren't a regular occurance. Kudos to you to have the balls to come on here and say your peace. Just make sure when you guys are in Regina that you do that kinda stuff when the opposition is on their feet.

    Re: My 2 cents.

    I still feel the knee attack was worse.

    In football, a kick like that is harmless. In a street-fight, kicking can be deadly. And I feel that is why this is all out of context.

    What Brock Ralph did was probably one of the top three dirty incidents I have ever witnessed in professional sports. He tried to injury someone (Braidwood) with a solid weapon (his helmet). There was unprovoked intent to injure in that instance.

    AJ kicked a guy in full football gear. It's not like he was wearing a steel toed boot. He was coming to the aid of his teammate.

    Did Tanya Harding get someone to kick Nancy Kerrigan? No, she had someone smack her in the knee with a pipe.

    In professional sports the dirtiest thing is going after a players knees.

    I still don't feel AJ was in the wrong. That doesn't mean I liked the kick, but in all reality there are not many proper ways for him to act in retalliation.

    Re: My 2 cents.

    Funny how Esksfans are the only ones who see Gass' act as justified or not that bad. Could be you're looking at things with rose coloured glasses. Just remember that, when you're beaking CGY fans for backing la femme Nikita Lewis for his completely legal hit or when Rider fans are ticked at their players getting fined/suspended for infractions the refs themselves didn't call penalties on.

    You are all alone in your support for A.J. and that says something.

    Actually, I'd like to see some of our players take your head off, next game, AJ. Your actions at the end of the game last Saturday were not out of character. You're known across the league as a dirty player.
