Bruce in trouble for Canadian Football League TD Tribue to Michael Jackson

TORONTO — The CFL may not be all that thrilled with Arland Bruce's tribute to Michael Jackson in the Argos' 30-17 win in Hamilton.

The league is reviewing the Toronto receiver's TD celebration Wednesday night.

After scoring on a 21-yard pass from Kerry Joseph to put Toronto ahead 6-0, Bruce removed his helmet, shoulder pads and uniform top and laid down in the end zone. Bruce said he was simply honouring the memory of Michael Jackson by pretending to be buried.

Bruce received two objectionable conduct penalties.

"I made the mistake of telling him in camp that once he got to the end zone I didn't care what he did," Toronto coach Bart Andrus said later. "But he's straight with it now and I think next time around he will celebrate in an appropriate manner."

Canadian Football League Week # 1 Picks


Argos vs. Ti-Cats

A new year and new attitude. The Ti-Cats have been saying that for years.
The key is how they start the season. If the Cats can get on a roll early,
maybe just maybe they could be loking at second place in the East.

The Argos ???? It will take a few games to tell.

Ti-Cats by 13

Als Vs Stamps

So what has changed since the Grey Cup. Not a great deal.
Two teams content with what they got.
Time will tell if standing still was the right call.
We will go with the champions.

Stamps by 5

Bombers Vs Eskimos

Both teams made tons of changes. You will need a program for this
game. The Bombers are a complete over haul. The Bombers need
the win more than the Eskimos as they start the season playing
6 out of 9 on the road. They fall back early and they could be done.

Bombers by 7

Lions Vs Riders

The Lions have lost quite a number of key cogs and the Riders
have been dealing with the Eric Tillman PR disaster and a non
proven starting QB. Another mystery for this one.

Riders by 8

This year 0-0 Last year 51-21
