(Vancouver) The BC Lions Football Club has issued the following statement with regard to the Canadian Football League’s decision to void the contract of Euclid Cummings:
“We support the Commissioner’s decision to void the contract of Euclid Cummings in light of criminal charges he is currently facing. We were given no indication by the player or his representation that these charges existed and I assure our fans, partners and supporters of the CFL across Canada, that we would not have offered him a contract had we known about this situation. Given that matter is before the criminal courts and under a publication ban, we will not be offering further comment.”
– Ed Hervey, General Manager.
