Let's talk about sex, Grey Cup coaches

  • Print

VANCOUVER - Winnipeg Blue Bombers head coach Paul LaPolice and B.C. Lions head coach Wally Buono kicked off Grey Cup week with a 'bang' here Wednesday morning.

The Grey Cup head coaches were asked at their news conference this morning the annual off-colour question - What are your thoughts on your players having sex before the game?

LaPolice - who’d been told days ago by his media relations staff to expect the question -- still blushed noticably as he considered his answer.

"I appreciate everyone’s concern on that, first of all," LaPolice chuckled. "I would say as most people say - everything in moderation.

That’s too much information for me with some of the guys. I don’t really want to be included in their Fridays and Saturdays."

Buono also expressed a laissez-faire attitude on the subject. "My thing is, do what you do. Some players -- God bless them, ok - enjoy sex. Some players don’t," Buono said to a roar of laughter. "At the end, it doesn’t matter. What matters is whether you line up and play for three-and-a-half hours. If sex is an excuse, it’s a bad excuse."

The coaches spoke in advance of their first practices here this week at BC Place, site of Sunday’s Grey Cup. The Bombers took the field at 12:30 p.m. CT and will be followed immediately afterward by the Lions.
