    Motto of the CFL: "We have bigger balls." Used to be able to get t-shrts with that on it.

    Well maybe this is good news. Some of us were worried about him only weighing 214 pounds. He seemed a bit light for a long snapper. Will the fact that he is bigger in this other area off-set this a bit? Does this benefit a long snapper?

    Lower centre of gravity . . . better follow through (the swing is the thing) . . . holding the football feels very familiar, therefore high comfort level. And don't forget the intimidation factor.

    and to think that used to be the official CFL slogan and CFL TV commercial -- seriously.

    So then, with the new data that I just picked up on in regards to the larger (and JMO possibly genetically altered ball size on CFL players), the end result is that we picked up a long snapper with large balls. Soul is going to have a field day with this...

    Just longsnapper camp body if nothing else but eventually we have move on rather it be sooner than later. Mannely was the man but it's long snapper lets not get too excited. best man wins the job either way Phil certainly had busy off season bring on the draft.
