Have some extra cash floating around your bank account? And a huge CFL fan?

In all, 72 items are up for auction, which also includes jackets, helmets, trophies, watches, equipment and other assorted autographed merchandise. No reason is given as to why Moon has decided to sell off his football possessions.
Although the items went up for auction in November, there are only two days left to bid.
For those that don’t know, the retired quarterback once held numerous career records, including most passing yardage, most passing touchdowns, most pass completions and most pass attempts in professional football, which includes the CFL and NFL. They were surpassed by Damon Allen and Brett Favre.
Considering the sensitive nature of the news about Winston, it makes perfect sense to keep a fictional movie character as far away from it as possible. Sexual battery is, obviously, not a topic any TV station wants a wise-cracking Burgundy to tackle.

Doing curling commentary for TSN last Sunday in Winnipeg. A spot on a North Dakota news program. Interviewing Denver Broncos quarterback Peyton Manning on ESPN.
Have we had just about all we can stomach of Burgundy, yet?
Fortunately, ESPN realized their little Burgundy promo stunt had a good chance of going sideways with the Winston news sure to be aired at the top of the broadcast. And that would have been no laughing matter.
UPDATE: Florida State Attorney Willie Meggs said Thursday afternoon that Jameis Winston will not be charged in the alleged rape of a fellow student.
