Darian Durant Defends Saskatchewan

A lot has been made of Darian Durant's beaking of Blue Bomber fans at the end of the Banjo Bowl.  Some people felt the move by the Rider quarterback was not needed. Durant responded to that today by basically saying "if you are going to dish it out, you had better be prepared to take it."

Here is what he had to say after practice today about that and the confidence he has had over the past couple of weeks.

FWIW, I couldn't agree more.

Don't have a problem with Darian's comments at all. I agree with him 100 percent.

So does this mean that we should just take it when Burris does it here. I think its classless when Hank does it, so I guess I have to say its classless when Darian does it or be accused of looking at life thru green-tinted glasses.

At what point will the media actually come out and criticize this guy. It lacked taste and class, but you, Pedersen and all the other media in this town just continue to lap it up. You guys all make me sick.

If you look at it from a CFL standpoint, it's fantastic! We had such a disdain for the BC Lions in the mid 2000's because of the back and forth with Guys like Kidd, Jimenez and Murphy. It makes the games that much more heated and intense. And lets not forget Henry Burris and the constant back and forth with the East Side.

So what if Winnipeg fans get their panties tied in a knot because of DD, and they think he's the bad guy. Let them! It just adds to the rivalry and makes it that much more fun for the fans, and the game that much more intense for the players, which makes for a better game!

Let them have it DD!
