DURON CARTER TREATS RIDER FANS


As if Rider fans needed one more reason to love Duron Carter.

On the night before the 2017 CFL East Division Final featuring the Roughriders and Argonauts at Toronto's BMO Field, Saskatchewan's leading receiver Duron Carter footed the bill for 26 Rider fans to join him at the movie Justice League at the Cineplex Odeon Varsity in downtown Toronto.

"Rule 1: You must have on Rider gear!!" Carter Tweeted from his account @DC_CHILLIN_8. "Rule 2: Refer to rule number 1!!"

When asked about his generous offer at Saturday's pregame news conference, Carter shrugged and told reporters, "I just wanted to see a movie!"

The whole tab summed up to $351 for the son of Pro Football Hall of Famer Cris Carter.

"I'm glad it's this many," Carter told CBC.ca. "If it was anymore I would have had to go to the bank and sign my name. It's a good turnout. We're about to see a great movie."

Best place to be on planet Earth this weekend is in Toronto, wearing Rider gear, and with tickets to the Big Game! Go Riders! Go Leafs!

Duron Carter is the man. It's so ridiculous how he has been portrayed by the media as such a villain. Maybe he's a villain on the football field to the opposing team, but he's clearly a good person with a big heart. It's too bad he started his career in that toxic cesspool of a football team that is Montreal.
