CFL coach gives very coach-like answer to pre-game sex question

Wednesday November 25th, 2015

Ottawa Redblacks coach Rick Campbell may have a future as an advice columnist for Cosmopolitan after his football career is over. 

At a press conference on Wednesday before Sunday’s Grey Cup (that’s the Canadian Super Bowl), Campbell was asked if he was going to allow his players to have sex before the big game against the Edmonton Eskimos in Winnipeg. He was able to work in plenty of coach-speak buzzwords into his answer, just like any football coach worth his salt.

Does having sex before a game actually have an impact on a player’s performance? Our friends at TIME looked into it before last year’s World Cup.
