RedBlacks’ Brad Sinopoli Talks Big Game Against Montreal

Published

on

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.”

Winnipeg Blue Bombers running back Andrew Harris has been suspended for two games following a failed drug test, according to an official league announcement.

Harris, 32, reportedly tested positive for Metandienone, which is a banned substance in the CFL.

“Throughout my four years playing here in Winnipeg, I have been drug tested more than any other player on our team to the point that it has become a running joke within our locker room,” Harris said. “I’m still in shock and disbelief at the news.

“The timeline makes it very clear — I was not using a banned substance for performance enhancing purposes, nor was I aware that I was taking any supplements with any banned substances in them. Based on the fact pattern, this is clearly a case of product contamination.”

“My road to becoming a starter in the CFL was extremely difficult, and I take a lot of pride in the honest blue collar work I’ve put in to reach this point in my career,” he said. “As unsettling and painful as this is to me and my family, I hope this can be a helpful reminder to all athletes about being extremely cautious and aware of what they are taking and putting into their bodies.”

“I can’t wait to rejoin my teammates and the city of Winnipeg in our quest to bring a Grey Cup to this wonderful city that I am fortunate enough to call home”.
