Moose delays fans trying to get to Banjo Bowl, launches tongue-in-cheek conspiracy theories

A moose on the, uh, loose has delayed the sold out crowd from filling Investors Group Field for the Banjo Bowl between the Winnipeg Blue Bombers and the Saskatchewan Roughriders.

The moose forced police to close a main road leading to the stadium, causing significant delays.

Given all the controversy leading up to this game – allegations of faked injuries, spitting and mascot abuse – social media saw the humour (and and potential conspiracy) in the moose’s appearance.

    If course no one can predict what a moose will do. With less then full attendance Winnipeg was able to tie sask on first home td

    Just another one of Jone’s stalling tactics….

  3. Love the 2 tweets with the pictures of the moose – especially the one about the moose going down with cramps! LOL 🙂

  4. The constable then deployed to Edmonton and successfully subdued JM with the tranquilizer…thus ending his press conference.

  5. I love it!I’ve followed this league for 55 years and have enjoyed every minute of it.But how Canadian is this lol.Only in Canada lol.This story has to be put in the books of authors doing C.F.L. history
