Stampeders cut former Riders QB Mitchell Gale and others

Calgary has made a decision with their backup quarterbacking situation.

Canadian Andrew Buckley and former NFL pivot Ricky Stanzi have made the team while former Riders passer Mitchell Gale has been released. The 27-year-old spent three seasons with the Argos before spending 2016 in Saskatchewan. Gale has played in 13 games completing 79 of 137 passes for 950 yards with two touchdowns and three interceptions. Inconsistency led to his release from Cowtown.

TSN’s Farhan Lalji has reported three other cuts Calgary made.

    Three football fans were on their way from a game when one noticed a foot sticking out of the bushes by the side of the road.

    They stopped and discovered a nude female, dead drunk.

    Out of respect and propriety, the B.C. Lions fan took off his cap and placed it over her right breast. The Eskimo fan took off his cap and placed it over her left breast.

    Following their lead, the Stampeder fan took off his cap and placed it over her crotch.

    The police were called and when the officer arrived, he conducted his inspection.

    First, he lifted up the Lions cap, replaced it and wrote down some notes. Next, he lifted the Eskimo cap, replaced it and wrote down some more notes.

    The officer then lifted the Stampeder cap, replaced it, then lifted it again, replaced it, lifted it a third time, and replaced it one last time.

    The Stampeder fan was getting upset and finally asked, “What are you, a pervert or something? Why do you keep lifting and looking, lifting and looking?”

    “Well,” said the officer, “I am surprised. Normally when I look under an Stampeder hat, I find an a**hole”

    A man wanted an attack dog to protect his business, so he visited a kennel that specialized in attack dogs.

    The man explained to the kennel owner that he wanted the biggest, meanest, most vicious dog in the kennel, and the owner offered to take the man on a tour of the premises.

    After they had been walking for a few minutes, they came upon a large dog. He was snarling loudly and biting and clawing at the cage.

    “He looks like he’d be a pretty good attack dog,” said the buyer. “Well, he’s not bad,” replied the owner, “but I have something better in mind for you.”

    They continued walking around the premises, and after a while they found an even larger, meaner dog than the first.

    He snarled at the two men and tried to bite them through the wire on his cage. “Ah,” said the buyer. “This must be the dog you were referring to earlier.”

    “Well, no.” said the owner. “I have something better in mind for you.” The men continued their tour.

    Eventually, they came upon a fairly large dog that was lying quietly on his side, licking his ass. He did not seem to notice as the men approached.

    “This is the dog I had in mind for you,” said the owner.

    The buyer was flabbergasted. “You’re joking!” he exclaimed. “This dog seems quite tame; he doesn’t act at all like an attack dog at all. Hell, he’s just lying there, licking his ass!”

    “I know, I know,” said the owner. “But you see, he just ate an calgary stampeder fan, and he’s trying to get the taste out of his mouth.”
