    Calgary Stampeders News Roundup for October 16, 2015

    Messam a good fit for Stampeders

    Runningback Jerome Messam should work nicely with the Calgary Stampeders. That's according to our Stampeders Insider Scott Mitchell from the Calgary Sun who joined The Big Show on Thursday. The Stamps acquired Messam from the Riders on Wednesday prior to the CFL trade deadline.

    Jerome Messam sacrificing rushing numbers for a shot at Grey Cup with Calgary Stampeders

    While Jerome Messam’s chances of winning the Grey Cup just went up — way, way up — the running back’s chances of securing his first CFL rushing title went the opposite way.
    Traded by the cellar-dwelling Saskatchewan Roughriders to the Calgary Stampeders at Wednesday’s trade deadline, instead of having three games remaining in Green & White, the 30-year-old running back will now only get two games to overtake B.C. Lions tailback Andrew Harris, who has a 40-yard lead and four games remaining.

    Fred Bennett hopes to re-join Calgary Stampeders in time for West Final or Grey Cup
    The clock has started and Fred Bennett is now in a race against time.
    After breaking his arm in the second half of last weekend’s loss to the Edmonton Eskimos, the Calgary Stampeders cornerback underwent surgery Tuesday and was given the timeline he expected: Six weeks.
    That lines up almost exactly with the 103rd Grey Cup in Winnipeg on Nov. 29.
    Bennett is holding out hope.

    If you have a problem, if no one else can help, and whenever Ben D’Aguilar is done with football ...maybe you can hire The Eh-Team
    For most kids, their father is a superhero, a man capable of jumping out of burning buildings, wrestling tigers and taking down villains.
    That dream was Ben D'Aguilar's childhood reality.
    Sort of.
    It doesn't take a whole lot of inside knowledge to see that the Calgary Stampeders defensive end is blessed with oodles of God-given athletic ability, the same traits that allowed him to star at McMaster University and propel himself into being a second-round CFL Draft pick.

    New Stamps running back Messam hopes move to Calgary is a home run
    When Jerome Messam awoke on Wednesday morning, he expected to get taken on an emotional rollercoaster thanks to his favourite Major League Baseball team.
    It turned out that his Canadian Football League team was the one that threw him for a loop.
    In the stands at the Rogers Centre for the Toronto Blue Jays’ Game 5 against the Texas Rangers, Messam got a text message from his friend Junior Turner, a defensive lineman with the Calgary Stampeders.
    The message read, ‘Welcome to the winner’s circle.’

    Messam will always remember Game 5
    Like many Canadians, Jerome Messam will always remember where he was for Game 5 of the 2015 ALDS. He was at Rogers Centre, but it might not be the game he remembers most.
    Messam was just getting comfortable in his seat when he got the first text message of what seemed like a million before the day was over.
    “Junior Turner sent me a text: ‘Welcome to the Winner’s Circle.’ I was like, ‘What does that mean?’ And I was just starting to text him back when the phone rang and it was Jeremy O’Day calling to tell me I’d been traded,” explained Messam, in a telephone chat on Thursday morning.

    When Rene Paredes splits the uprights for three, he’s doing even more than putting points on the board for the Red and White.
    Paredes has teamed up Tenaquip for the Kicks for a Cure program, which sees $200 donated to the Prostate Cancer Centre after every successful field goal at home this season.
    Having only missed two field goals at McMahon so far this year, Paredes has nailed 14 three-pointers which amounts to $2,800 donated to date.
