Mike Webster

Mike Webster attended Notre Dame and was part of some very strong Fighting Irish teams before joining the BC Lions in 1966.  Webster was traded to the Montreal Alouettes in a deal that sent quarterback Bernie Faloney to the Lions from Montreal.  Webster would play four seasons (1967-70) with Montreal, culminating his career with a Grey Cup victory in 1970.

Webster's football career ended abruptly after the 1970 season.  It was not an injury that ended it, but rather labour issues.  Webster was the player rep for the Alouettes and helped engneer a protest against their treatment by delaying the reporting of players to training camp in 1971.  Webster ended up being traded to Hamilton where they needed someone to replace the retired John Barrow at defensive tackle.  Hamailton, however, wanted Webster at a reduced salary and Webster retired from football to start his second career as a professional wrestler.  "Iron Mke" became a highly successful and hated wrestler. After wrestling, Webster went on to his third career as a psychologist.  Actually,Webster had started work on his pyschology career at McGill while playing for the Alouettes.  Dr. Mike Webster became a highly respected psychologist, working with law enforcent agencies such as the RCP and FBI in hostage situations.
