Terrence Toliver’s foot is the most disgusting thing you’ll see all day

While some of the physical risks facing CFL players are self-evident – concussions, torn ligaments, various muscle strains, the occasional broken bone – some of the nastiest injuries are the ones you can’t see.

Hamilton Tiger-Cats receiver Terrence Toliver posted a photo of his gnarly-ass foot on Saturday and it is disgusting.



Response from the Twitterverse ranged from sympathy to oh-my-god my eyes, my eyes!!!


Toliver’s tootsies caught the eyes of former CFL quarterback and current TSN analyst Matt Dunigan, a man who knows a thing or two about injuries.

Toliver offered an explanation as to how, exactly, this happened.

The Ticats are on a bye week so he should have some time to get that puppy cleaned up a little. And please, no more photos.

    Hi Terrence you might want to try “Straight Arrow” Therapeutic products that are great for the feet. Website:

      Kentwool socks are made for athletes. Golfers swear by them. They are expensive at $24 USD a pair but well worth it if you need your feet for your job.

  2. He looks like he has been dancing on the BBQ! Wow, he did not even play in the pre-season. He needs some insoles.

  3. Good lord – did he play barefoot….

  4. In the Army, we have this thing called “foot powder” – it actually works well when you’re carrying a 25kg rucksack, wearing your “battle rattle”, and toting your weapon on a 13km timed march.

    Fresh socks and good air circulation certainly helps when not wearing cleats. The good news is that his foot doesn’t look like it’s infected. The bye week will help…

    This is nothing more than Hygiene laziness. Young men do nothing to help the health of their feet. They don’t wash them with soap in the shower. Then they don’t dry between the toes. I can only imagine how grodie the skin is between his outside 3 toes. You get millions of fungi growing and incubating in your socks and shoes when you don’t clean and dry them every shower. As stated above. If your not going to look after your feet at least use powder. Or get what’s coming.

  6. Next to his hands I imagine the feet are most important to a receiver… so this begs the question…
    Umm where is the training staff and wtf are they doing? How can you possibly let his feet get to this condition???

      An athletic therapist (the “training staff”) cant go around look at everyones feet all the time. There is more serious shit to deal with. Players are grown men and the athletic therapist can’t be a parent to each and every one of them.

      When a big patch of skin comes off the bottom of the foot like this it happens all of a sudden. There isnt any warning signs it just happens. Its when this occurs that the athletic therapist comes into the picture. They are the ones who keep it clean and dry so it doesnt get worse or infected.

      Don’t start placing blame on the athletic therapist when its something they couldnt help prevent. Also in the CFL there is maybe 2 or 3 athletic therapists for the while team, its not the NFL where there is over 12.

  7. Sorry Thor but maybe you should try running on extremely hot turf when temps are 30+ and see if your feet don’t burn and blister… not a case of lazy hygiene more likely an extreme case of turf toe…

  8. Toliver should bath and apply Aloe Vera.Used by sailors for rope burn and one of few plants that Noah had on the Arc.

    I believe it was Noah’s wife, Joan of Arc, who applied the Aloe Vera. There’s a photo of the procedure right near the front of the book.

    Okay, no offence to Toliver as I’m glad he’s back and doing well but there is not ONE article on here of Masoli tying Kent Austin’s Record for consecutive 300 games and we are talking about foot powders and creams. I would even take a Manziel article over this. Cmon. Get a life and lets get back to the game.

    Feet can take a lot if they are looked after. Meaning proper footwear, dry socks and yes I agree with the comment above about hygien. Too many times issues like this are caused from lack of preparation and post practise or game care. If your feet sweat a lot. Then changing socks at half time is a must. Cleaning them properly and drying them properly is also a must. Then again if your cleats are worn and lose or have become gnarly then get new ones that support better. This is 100% on each individual and nothing to do with the trainer.

    Terrence get those puppies healed and then stick them in zinc oxide powder. It may look like hell but it toughens the skin and any sweat will bead off of them. This is what weight lifters put their hands in before lifting the bar so as to get a good grip.My dad brought some home from work and when my niece was in the school rowing club she developed blisters on her hands and so dad sent her some and after that she had no blister problem.

    We have a cupboard here in the kitchen we call “The Cupboard of Shame”. It’s where we keep the nuts and Hawkins cheese doodles.
    I’m printing off a picture of TT’s feet and putting it on a little stand inside the cupboard. I figure I’ll be down 15-20 pounds by the end of July.
