Winnipeg Blue Bomber football practice was delayed on Sunday for nearly two hours at Canada Inns Stadium. One of the players, while on his way to the locker room, happened to look down and notice a suspicious looking, unknown white powdery substance on the field.
The head coach immediately suspended practice while the RCMP were called in to investigate. After a complete field analysis, the RCMP determined that the white substance, unknown to the players, was the goal line.
Practice was resumed when the RCMP decided that the team would not be likely to encounter the substance again.
