Blue Bombers’ Jeff Hecht Blasts Redblacks’ Louis-Philippe Bourassa Over Suspension

Published

on

Winnipeg Blue Bombers’ defensive back Jeff Hecht isn’t taking it easy on Ottawa Redblacks long-snapper Louis-Philippe Bourassa for his two-game suspension for violating the league’s drug policy.

In fact, Hecht is letting Bourassa know what he thinks, first hand, in a direct post on Twitter in which he rips the Redblacks player for his violation.

The Redblacks issued a statement that said Bourassa tested positive for an over-the-counter product and that he was unaware that it contained a banned substance.

Hecht wasn’t having it.

“The player was very much aware of the banned nature of this product,” Hecht said. “If he was not, then there is a larger problem of negligence and ignorance that needs to be addressed.”
