This talk of Crookshank returning to Halifax got me curious about the Edmonton Chill – the IBL team he was briefly signed to in the spring, but promptly left after promises of accomodations didn’t come through. At the time the team claimed he didn’t fit in so they released him, Eric said he left when he was told to pay for his own living arrangements. I assumed he wasn’t lying, some internet naysayers claimed he was. No one got upset about it.
So I looked for some articles online today instead of doing school work (aka reading about the development of Mothers’ Allowances and social security in Ontario) and found this home run of an article. I think we can say pretty definitively that the owner was trying to rip Crookshank off. Unlike a lot of people, Eric left before he could get fleeced.
