Eskimos left Winnipeg with more than the Grey Cup…


The Grey Cup wasn’t enough…

For most CFL teams, winning the #GreyCup is the be all and end all, needing no other trophy. However, for the Edmonton Eskimos, this is not the case. After defeating the Ottawa Redblacks in the 103rd Grey Cup, the Eskys wanted an additional souvenier to commemorate the victory.

Just prior to Saturday’s Grey Cup rematch with the afformentioned Redblacks, Eskimos President and CEO Len Rhodes posted this:

The Eskimos trolling did not stop there. Redblack Supporters who made it to Commonwealth for Saturday’s game received an unwanted gift in the form of participation ribbons.

In the end, the Football Gods must’ve had enough with the Eskys taunting as they were subsequently defeated by the Redblacks in a OT thriller.
