    Calgary Stampeders News Roundup for July 22, 2015

    Cornish post-game comments - July 21

    RB Jon Cornish talks about being named one of the CFL's top performers of the week.

    Stamps linebacker Jasper Simmons ready to face his old team in Ottawa
    Stampeders linebacker Jasper Simmons says he may have a small chip on his shoulder when he faces his former team in Ottawa on Friday.

    CFL Top Performers: Week 4
    A pair of Eskimos earned honours as the CFL Top Performers from Week 4, while Stampeders running back Jon Cornish hit the 100-yard mark for the first time this season.


    As soon as the 2015 CFL schedule was released in mid-February, Jasper Simmons had July 24 circled on his calendar.
    Acquired in an off-season trade with the Ottawa RedBlacks in exchange for wide receiver Maurice Price, the Missouri alum is looking forward to returning to TD Place to face his former team. The Stamps head to the Nation’s Capital this week to take on the RedBlacks with a 3-1 record atop the West division.
    “It’s going to be great to go back because that’s the first team that gave me my opportunity in the CFL,” explained the weak-side linebacker. “It’s almost like going back home.”

    Jasper Simmons still searching for role with Calgary Stampeders
    If you think Jasper Simmons is content, think again.
    He used to dominate. Now he just wants to participate.
    The Ottawa RedBlacks-turned-Calgary Stampeders linebacker was a year-end nominee for both the most outstanding player and top defensive player awards while he was playing his trade in the nation’s capital.
    Those days are long gone, and Simmons isn’t particularly happy about it.

    Calgary Stampeders star Jon Cornish among CFL's Top Performers for Week 4
    It should be known as The Jon Cornish rule.
    The CFL did away with its old weekly awards format where one player each from four categories — offence, defence, special teams and Canadian — were recognized.
    Now it’s a three stars approach.

    Abundance of flags may eventually lead to better CFL game
    Have we been looking at this flag flap all wrong?
    Could all these penalties actually be a good thing, in the long run, for the CFL?
    As painful as some of these flag-filled tilts have been early in the season, the answer just might be yes.
    The NHL went through a penalty-filled phase of its own when it cracked down on obstruction following the 2004-05 lockout.

    Stamps notes: Speedy Slaughter back in the mix after ankle healed
    Sitting by the phone, probably keeping his injured ankle elevated, is how Nathan Slaughter passed much of the time after he was cut by the Calgary Stampeders at training camp.
    On Tuesday, back in the mix, he was ready to continue where he left off.
    Slaughter, the speedy receiver/returner, was added to the CFL squad’s practice roster — something he was fully expecting to happen.

    Simmons settling into role as team guy with Stamps after all-star season in Ottawa
    Ottawa, being a lovely city with numerous attractions and terrific restaurants, would be a top draw for any visitor.
    This particular visitor, however, is looking forward to returning to the place in which — after a couple of seasons — he began to make a name for himself in the Canadian Football League.
    “It’s going to be great to go back,” admitted Calgary Stampeders’ linebacker Jasper Simmons, “to go back to the team that you played with last year and I felt I had a pretty good season. But I’m going there with a chip on my shoulder, to let them know that I am a little disappointed with how everything happened. But it’s part of the business.
    “I’m a Stamp now and glad to be here.”

    O line woes
    Kind of a sad sight Monday. Karl Lavoie by himself at the end of the field, crutch at his side, heading for knee surgery and a three month recovery.
