Ottawa RedBlacks wide receiver Brad Sinopoli hadn’t recorded a 100-yard game since June 29th of 2017, so his big game against the Montreal Alouettes was long overdue.
Sinopli was a big reason that Ottawa defeated Montreal 28-18 in Week 4, collecting a career-high 11 receptions for 148 yards and a touchdown.
“In this receiving corps, guys have big weeks and then they focus on that guy. Then other guys have the opportunity to step up,” Sinopoli told OttawaREDBLACKS.com on Monday.
Ottawa now takes on the Calgary Stampeeders, who have yet to suffer defeat this season.
“It was a struggle last game for us. It always is, they just know what they’re doing. They show a lot of different looks, they try not to give anything up deep. They try to just let you throw shallow stuff, and rally and make the tackle, and they’re really good at making the tackle” Sinopli said.
“You can see the way this league’s going to be this year. You want to cash in on any chance you have,” REDBLACKS head coach Rick Campbell told the media following practice at TD Place Stadium on Monday. “We’re playing the only undefeated team and we’re back at home so it’s another great opportunity.”
“We want sustained excellence, and part of that is sustained health” Ottawa head coach Rick Campbell said.
“We’re trying to do a good job at maintaining these guys. It’s a long season, but part of it is being smart and part of it is luck, so we want to do the part we can control and ensure we keep people as healthy as we can.”
Tiger-Cats’ Brandon Banks Upset with Fine
Hamilton Tiger-Cats wide receiver Brandon Banks is upset over a fine he was hit with for “making unnecessary contact on an on-field official” during his team’s win over the Calgary Stampeders back on Saturday.

Banks responded to the fine on Twitter, directing his message to CFL Commissioner Randy Ambrose.
