    I love CFL football, but I couldn't make it out to Mount Pearl to see the Grey Cup and get my picture taken with it. I, too, am absolutely fed up with so much being called after Team Gushue. I totally agree with Jim. Brad Gushue gets rid of his team members like people change socks. What have they won since?

    Team gushue sports complex? Oh for heavens sake, give up naming everything under the sun after that team. A team I might add that has been dismantled several times since. There's other well to do folks from our province who are far more deserving. Good lord.
