Darren Flutie


Darren Flutie remembering the 1994 Grey Cup Game. "I remember everything from '94," he said. "I remember the energy. The electricity coming out on the field was just unbelievable. When I came here in 1991, I never would have thought I'd still be playing up here in 1999 and had the success I've had."  (1999)

Darren Flutie on why he chose to follow McManus to Edmonton - the duo moved to Hamilton two years ago - rather than join his famous quarterback brother in Toronto. "Doug wanted me badly to go to Toronto," Darren said. "[Argo coach] Don Matthews, he wanted me there but the money was a little better in Edmonton. I think part of me wanted to be my own individual, which is kind of funny now. "For so long I've been associated with Danny. You can't say McManus without Flutie or Doug without Darren. I lose either way."  (1999)

Darren Flutie on being back in Vancouver for a Grey Cup If he squints at that photo long enough, it's amazing the details he recalls from the 1994 Grey Cup game in Vancouver, the plays, the sounds, the emotion. But then he moves his eyes and it seems it never happened. "It seems like ages ago," Flutie said Friday, preparing to play another Grey Cup game in Vancouver, but for the Hamilton Tiger-Cats, not the B.C. Lions. "It seems like it's been such a long time. Five years. I was talking to my wife and it feels like 20 years. It has been a whole other lifetime." (1999)
