Redblacks GM Marcel Desjardins goes down hard, Shawn Lemon laughs

Shawn Lemon appears to have enjoyed his former boss taking a good hit.

During the first half of Ottawa’s home game against B.C., returner Chris Rainey broke a long return and was tackled out of bounds. The subsequent collision knocked Redblacks general manager Marcel Desjardins to the ground with the 50-year-old personnel man’s left knee appearing to buckle as Rainey made contact with him.


Lemon, a former Ottawa defensive lineman who engaged in a Twitter spat with Desjardins after signing with Saskatchewan this winter (he’s now with the Argos but that’s a whole other story), tweeted around the same time Desjardins was knocked down.

In subsequent tweets, Lemon claims he was out for birthday dinner that he could care less about the Ottawa Redblacks. But the timing is suspicious – to say the least.
