The Battle of Alberta just got a little salty.
After running back C.J. Gable said the Eskimos essentially beat themselves on Labour Day, Calgary quarterback Bo Levi Mitchell has fired back, accusing Gable of being “disrespectful.”
It started when Gable beaked off to beat writer Gerry Moddejonge after Eskimos lost 23-30 to Calgary on Labour Day as Rene Paredes hit a field goal with zeros left on the clock – the seventh straight win for Calgary over Edmonton on the September holiday Monday.
“They’re not as good as everybody thinks they are, they’re a regular team like everybody else. We just f—ed ourselves,” Gable said to Eskimos beat writer Gerry Moddejonge.
On Wednesday, Calgary’s franchise quarterback responded to Gable.

The rematch goes Saturday in Edmonton and given that the Stamps are 9-1 and three games up on the Eskimos in the race for first in the West Division, Gable might want to focus on actually winning the next game instead of talking about how they lost the last one.
And Bo Levi needs Twitter back. Now.
