Canadian TE Antony Auclair sings O Canada on Hard Knocks

Antony Auclair took part in a rookie singing challenge in Tampa Bay.

The Laval University product took the stage after some other first-year players and sung O Canada in french on the first episode of Hard Knocks this year.

Buccaneers franchise quarterback Jameis Winston liked it so much that he stood and placed his hand over his heart as the rest of the team followed.

The six-foot-five, 254-pounder had 17 catches for 229 yards and two touchdowns in eight regular season games for the Rouge et Or last year. He recorded a team-high 70 receiving yards and one touchdown in Laval’s 2016 Vanier Cup championship victory.

Then he garnered an invite to the East-West Shrine Game. After showing well in Florida, 17 NFL teams travelled to Quebec City to see Auclair perform at his pro day. That made 10 NFL teams bring him in for a visit.

Auclair signed as an undrafted free agent with the Buccaneers immediately after the 2017 NFL draft. Saskatchewan selected him in the fourth round, 30th overall in the 2017 CFL draft.

During training camp in Tampa Bay, Auclair has been shining while sharing his Canadian pride.

    Proud that he’s Canadian.
    No Rider fans. He’s not yours just because you foolishly drafted him. He’s Canada’s and Quebec’s until he plays a long career for you.

  2. They are laughing while placing their hands over thier hearts. Making a mockery of it. Classy.Not

      It’s all in fun. Not get upset

      • Should not get upset like the Riders reply to Lulu? Oh wait that was just the biggest kick in the face anyone could every reply with!(Sarcasm) One article its fine, another is not. Maybe you should make up your mind horsie. You inferior little troll.

          Its not the same thing at all.
          This is a fun event every NFL team holds for rookies during camp. Its meant to lighten the mood and provide a break from the seriousness and rigor in the middle of training camp. It’s implied that every comment and action isn’t to be taken serious.

          Lulay paid a compliment to the riders. They reply with a virtual ” F off”

          • You and this “Virtual” anything. You know Virtual means absolutely nothing.
            It was done as a joking manner, like the billboards in the other cities… Maybe your blind hatred to the Riders is clouding reality.
            You’re a joke.

          Ok RobE and all rider fans
          Let me put this in a context that is more relateable to most people
          Suppose you are at the mall parking lot, You see a guy getting out of his brand new Cadillac and you decide to pay him a compliment on it.
          Here are 2 possible responses
          1)- “Thank you, I worked really hard and consider myself very lucky to be able to have it”

          2)- “Oh Yeah? We’ll see how you feel later when I accidentally plow you down backing out”

          Which one would you honestly want and expect?

          • BleedzGreen // August 14, 2017 at 5:02 pm //

            Oh good, it’s Storytime with IMAN IDIOT.

          • Ok Horsie, any sane person knows that when you have a home field advantage the crowd will get on the opposing team from the benches, yell at them and generally try to get them out of their comfort zone.

            That is all that the tweet was playfully suggesting. Of course in your mind that means that the twitter master (obviously must have been Jones I’m sure) was making veiled threats against Lulay’s safety and well being. Perhaps the fans should shut up so that the Lions could have concentrated when they had the ball and not try to visually intimidate them by doing the wave or starting the Wa-lly chants later in the game?

          Those billboards were not meant as a joke. They were a clear jab to try to get under the opposition’s skin. BTW. I’m sure the vast majority of those games were loses!

          • Lol Okay Horsie… Let me put it for you in a way you can understand. These are 2 completely different scenarios. This is called pro sports man. Getting butthurt over a comment that was meant in a competitive, jokingly way. Give you head a shake.
            You’re scenarios are for complete strangers.. and a car.. Pretty sure the lions and riders know each other and know what was going to be happening on the weekend.

            Of course you gotta put a spin on it for no apparent reason, other than you have a hate on for the Riders.
            Only you and other Rider haters think like that. I’m pretty sure the vast majority had absolutely no problem with that comment whatsoever, and probably had a good laugh out of it. Pretty sure there was a few of them that commented on it.
            Making a mountain out of mole hill as usual.

  3. Canadian Anthem…….hands down most stirring by a long shot!……..says an American.
