From James Maendel

Hi Barrin Just want to let you know (as a big Fan of Yours) How happy I am to see you back in the line up Monday Somehow I assumed that you will come around and rejoin our team to be a KEY to help this team win The Grey Cup.. Many fan have thrown In the towel in this season But I a one who believes you can still get the job done, So I would encourage you to go out and tackle the day lights out of those Cats They Better respect the Fact that The Minister of D is back Or This game will be over in the first quarter already\' I have read You web site and found out that you are an ordained minster I would like to know what Church you represent. I am a Born again Christian myself and am impressed to see Christians on our team. Once again I wish you lots of Luck and tackles in your return!!!!! Keep Up The Great work!!

Thanks James for all of your support :)

From Ron Schellenberg

September 24, 2009 I my mind you have kept your integrity and you have been upstanding through all the junk that the Bomber organization has put you through. I did not believe any of the crap when they said you and Doug Brown came to blows. And now you and he have cleared that all up. My question is this. If the team does not get a fair trade for you or they don\'t do a deal in the next year before training camp, can you play for this coach? I am no reporter, I am just a guy on the couch that loves the game of football, and have admired you in BC and was thrilled when Winnipeg signed you. Thanx for your time, God Bless you Ron

Thanks for your support Ron and I only want to be an example of a believer.

From Joe Cattani

Hi Barrin! Sept 23/09 Thanks for the wonderful years of service to the Winnipeg Blue Bombers and the people of Manitoba. I am deeply saddened by the unprofessional manner in which the Blue Bombers are treating you. But as alway, your character and class allows you to rise above this situation. I want to apologize to you for this shabby treatment and wish you all the best in your future endeavours, wherever they may be. Cheers, Joe Cattani

Thanks Joe

From Aaron Stechesen

Hey Barrin, Just thought I would drop you a line to say I understand and support you in your differences with the Bombers. I am a season ticket holder and have felt all the way through that the team has been unfair in their treatment of you. While I feel you have made some mistakes with how some things were handled I am still 100% behind you. I miss you and wish you will move on to a team that appreciates your talent and gives you the playing time you deserve.

Thanks Aaron
