RedBlacks’ Diontae Spencer Doesn’t Hold Back In Win Over Riders

Published

Ottawa RedBlacks wide receiver Diontae Spencer’s war of words with Saskatchewan cornerback Duron Carter added another chapter with a 40-12 blowout win over the Riders on Thursday Night Football.

Spencer hauled in a critical 3rd quarter touchdown which put the game out of reach, en route to 82 receiving yards, besting Carter.

“I guess they had a good vacation,” Spencer said after the game, via Ottawa’s TSN 1200. “They came and saw Parliament. Pack your bags and go home.”

“I don’t wanna talk about it, (but) from now on, he’s not 89,” Spencer said, according to CFL.ca. “I never let anybody with No. 89 cover me. All he does is talk — he knows what’s up with me. He’s got to change his number if he wants to play against me next time.”

We nice, we know we nice. We don’t need anybody to tell us we’re good,” said Spencer, who stated that Ottawa’s 40-point outburst was “100 per cent” a message to the rest of the league. “We tough all around the board — it don’t matter who it is, from Greg (Ellingson) to D(ominique) Rhymes to Brad (Sinopoli) to Noel (Thomas Jr.), we tough.”

“It’s a good thing (to win) because winning doesn’t come easy in this league, (and) our guys are pretty humble,” said Ottawa head coach Rick Campbell. “It’s important (to win at home) because we love our fans and all that, but our guys have been really good about not getting caught up in home or away, or opponent or all that. They go about their business and don’t get caught up in the other stuff.”

Stampeders’ Bo Levi Mitchell Ruled Out

Calgary Stampeders quarterback Bo Levi Mitchell has been ruled out for Week 9’s game against the Winnipeg Blue Bombers on Thursday.

Mitchell was able to return to practice on Tuesday, and was able to make a number of throws at various distances and lengths, but the team ultimately decided that he was not ready for action just yet.

Stampeders head coach Dave Dickenson had left the door open for Mitchell to dress against Winnipeg, but now he is not going to dress for the game either.

Mitchell, for his part, is remaining upbeat about his injured shoulder.

“It felt great” Mitchell said on Tuesday, according to TSN. “I didn’t really want to take the helmet off…overall, I felt pretty good.

“That’s Dave (Dickenson’s) decision. Dave and Huf (GM John Hufnagel) – let those guys decide.”

Mitchell will now set his sights on Week 10, where he could return as the team takes on the Montreal Alouettes at home.
