Harris’s suspension and what it means for “Bombers”

The Canadian Football League has been subject to many issues in the past, especially involving doping. Many CFL players have been found guilty of using PED (performance enhancement drugs) either by mistake or intentionally and have been made to pay the due sacrifice.

Andrew Harris of the Winnipeg Blue Bombers made shocking headlines after he was found guilty of a violation of the Canadian Football League drug policies.

Harris, a 32-year old running back has been in tremendous form since the beginning of this season, covering a whopping 908 yards from just 141 carries. Unfortunately, the superstar tested positive of methandienone.

Because of this result, the player was suspended for 2 games. The Bombers star rusher broke down emotionally after learning that he has been handed a 2 game ban because of the ‘failed test.’

He lamented the case claiming that he hadn’t had any form of performance enhancement drug throughout his career so far and doesn’t intend to. He said the result of the test was more like a ‘product contamination.’

The unfortunate ban means Harris will be on the sidelines when Winnipeg Blue Bombers line out in an all-important game against the ‘Riders.’

What this means for the Bombers against the Riders

Andrew Harris is not just the best back in Winnipeg, he is one of the best running backs in the whole Canadian Football League and a serious threat in every game he plays. His figure and presence should do enough to push the Riders back into position.

However, since he would be absent, the Riders might gain some confidence and go all out with their man-to-man defensive strategy. Ever since the test and suspension on Harris, his whole team has rallied around him and given him all the support he needs.

The team’s coach, O’Shea has also expressed his confidence in the depth of his squad despite the unfortunate suspension of one of their bests. Taking advantage of the latest casino bonuses will go a long way when betting on CFL.
