TORONTO -- The Canadian Football League announced today that it has fined Calgary Stampeders running back Jon Cornish an undisclosed amount for his inappropriate conduct towards CFL fans during yesterday's game against the Saskatchewan Roughriders at Mosaic Stadium.
Earlier today, Cornish issued an apology for his actions.
"The incident was a mistake on my part. I definitely took things too far and it reflects poorly on the organization. First of all, I want to apologize to Coach Huff, all the coaches, my teammates, all the Stampeders fans and Stampeders organization and to the Riders fans and organization. It was an extreme lack of judgment on my part and I apologize to everyone in the CFL and to the Commissioner. Nobody deserves to deal with this and I apologize to everyone involved," he said in a release.
Stampeders GM and Head Coach John Hufnagel also commented on Cornish's conduct.
"I think you see how disappointed Jon is in himself once he fully realized the seriousness of the matter. I’m very disappointed in Jon Cornish. He took things way too far and it needs to be dealt with. I’ve had a chat with Jon about it, he knows my feelings about it, he knows our president Lyle Bauer’s feelings about it. He will be disciplined," said Hufnagel.
