Thanks Moe for all you did with the Bombers.  I will never forget the fake out TD return.

One of the best we've seen, a class player and individual. Unfortunate that injuries have done in his ability to continue contributing.

I think releasing him early and prior to becoming a free agent was done out of respect to give him a longer opportunity to seek other options.

Good luck to him and thanks for the memories.

I?m sure that last game he played eats at him. The guy was far too good of a player to go out in such a manner. Achilles injuries have taken many an athlete down...especially ones in their 30?s.

The D could have really used a healthy Leggett (& Santos-Knox) last Sunday!

Good luck Moe! I hope you stick around Wpg and find a prosperous career.

It was nice to know ya. I mean he couldn't walk normally when I saw him in public.
Haven't heard you say that one before 😂 I saw him around Banjo Bowl and he seemed fine

Good luck Moe. You were one of my favorite players until you got injured.

So...we lost the Western Final and Moe in the same week?  *** Bombers!

I know he was injured all year, but that doesn't stop him from being one of my favourites.  For all his tackles, all his interceptions, and all he does in the community, Moe will be sorely missed.

I don't know whether to  Angry or  Cry .

That's my favorite Mo memory. Rainey had burnt us for like a 60 yard TD run on a 3rd and short on an end around in the first half.

Well it was 3rd and short again towards the end of the game, in the red zone, and I believe BC needed a TD for the lead. Bc tried that play again. Mo attacked the edge, shed his block and did this ridiculous, backwards diving, blind arm tackle into Rainey's shin to trip him up and secure the win.

After the game, he said he recognized the play being ran again and was able to adjust and make the play. Someone on BC called it a "lucky" tackle. Perfect example of how football smarts and skill helps make your own luck.

Mo was a playmaker. Thank you for being a WPG BB!

Sounds like he's not ready to accept retirement, too bad.

Can't say I blame him. He's a proud man and player.

Injuries derailed a pretty brilliant career and he was a major piece of this team the last few years and remains one my favourite players.

All the best in your future endeavours, Mo!
