    Some pretty strong images of off field drug use and team hazing are discussed in a new book written by Curtis Fogel, a professor at Lakehead University (who doesn't carry football by the way).

    The book is entitled "Game Day Gangsters: Crime and Deviance in Canadian Football" and is set for release about the start of the CFL season.

    Are we talking CFL here or also CIS? wasn't hazing an issue a few years back with McGill & some other universities?

    Sounds like the book could be titled "I Got an Ax to Grind".... players have historically been treated like farm animals!
