    Source unknown: I was thinking of the "free exchange of ideas" last night. You know, it's not like a market, it's like a potluck. Everyone brings their own ideas and you sample others and some are familiar with a twist, some are interesting but not to your taste, some are bad, some are lifechanging. You can get into a discussion about recipes or technique, or what have you as people talk about the food. If someone brings mashed potatoes, you can debate the appropriateness for a potluck: is it too bland? Will it get cold on the table? Do potatoes make up too much of our diet? But if someone puts a steaming platter of dog **** on the table, we're not going to debate it. And when we tell them to take it off the table, it's not because we are afraid of eating their dog **** or we think that it's going to revolutionize lunch and we don't want that to happen. We tell them to get it off the table because there is no debate to be had. It's dog ****. It's not an open question, it's not a matter of palettes or picky eaters. That's why we don't engage with neo-nazis and white supremacists, and it's why we don't (or shouldn't) let them come to the potluck

  2. Any and every bit, scrap and morsel of CFL content is worth caring about. We get so little, and while it's the shortest off-season of all time, it's still been far too long since we've had CFL news to care about. I am ALWAYS excited for the CFL draft each and every year.

  4. Our man Tait has a great piece on Dobson. Sounds like he's fitting in, bonding with the group all ready and displaying that Bomber OL mindset = Its about the team+Physically maul people. Love it.

  6. I remember telling my dad on the way to that game, for absolutely no reason at all, that Greg Carr was the next great Bomber receiver. Then he had like 2 catches for 150 yards and 2 touchdowns at half before his leg exploded and he missed the rest of the game and I thought I was a genius. I think 21 year old me just kept hoping we were going to find the next Milt Stegall, I even had a Jeffers-Harris jersey. 😆

  9. Patrice Rene signed today. We are stacked with Canadian DBs. We must be strongly looking at starting a Canadian at the safety or corner position.

  10. People calling it a reach because it’s way earlier than what 3DN mocked lmaoooooo When are people going to realize the 3DN gang doesn’t have a hot clue? John Hodge would be a late round draft pick in the MBB draft if he were a poster here

  15. So is there a weekly snap count audit to make sure everyone is compliant? They really need to work on simplifying the roster juggling and not making it more convoluted.

  17. I guess I should have said why I was a bit shocked. 1- A total stranger said we need to shoot the PM 2- As far as I know we are not and probably can't send oil to the Ukraine 3- Neither the carbon tax or our loosely promised hope to send oil to Europe to off- set the bans on Russian oil and gas are the cause of the rise in fuel prices. 4- I thought this new idiocy of not actually looking things up or thinking things through would stay south of the border. I really dislike Trudeau. I think he is a snotty rich kid who rode his Dads name . But so what. I didn't and won't vote for him but enough people did that he was elected. That's a democracy. Lots of people on here despised Harper but the man was elected and you have to live with it. Neither are Nazis. Neither are dictators. People have to get over themselves and realise that in a democracy the desires and opinions of the individual don't matter. And in Canada we don't shoot our leaders even if they dont represent our personal opinions.Rant done lol

    Top 5 Bomber QBs

    During the 1974 season, Don Jonas was unhappy with new Head Coach Bud Riley taking the play calling away from him & giving it to his OC. Riley said qbs had enough things to worry about on the field & playcalling shouldn't be one of them. Besides, Riley said that the game was changing & more responsibilities were being given to coaches when it came to play calling. Turns out Riley was right as today no qb calls his own game. But Jonas was a throwback to another time & he felt he was the one who should call the plays not an assistant on the sidelines so there was a major clash there. With the Bombers struggling on the field, GM Earl Lunsford felt it was his duty to open his big yap of a pie hole to the local media & he too criticized Jonas for throwing some ill timed interceptions early in that 1974 season. Jonas took exception to that & in an article published by the Winnipeg Tribune's Sports Editor & Bomber beat writer jack Matheson in mid August, he criticized Riley for changing the playcalling from what he was used to. When it came to Lunsford in the same article, Jonas was quoted by Matheson as saying something about Lunsford not having a clue about how the offense worked, not knowing the plays, never sitting in on film or qb meetings, that he should stick to managing the team & mind his own business. Lunsford was angered & set out to trade Jonas just to show him Who Was The Boss. A couple of weeks later, the trade was made & he was off to Hamilton for Chuck Ealey. One thing a player didn't do was cross Lunsford as he was a vindictive man. A number of players including Jonas found that out. Jonas knew something was up. About a week before the trade was consumated he went in to talk to Lunsford to try to smooth the waters. He said he was willing to step aside as the starter to play Brock. That he would like to mentor the young QB as a player-coach & that he wanted to end his career as a Bomber. Lunsford had made up his mind to trade what he felt was the "malcontent" veteran qb & nothing Jonas said made a difference.

  19. Subpar Offensive Lines are a problem on many teams BUT, the most important positions (OT) are being filled with 95% Americans So, to say the OL issues are created by the Canadian ratio, is over-simplifying a complex problem Winnipeg has built an outstanding OL by signing and retaining of THE BEST American Tackles available - while scouting and drafting good Canadians They have a good OL because of the ratio, not in spite of it And, good players are well paid, regardless of nationality.

  21. I don’t mind this at all, obviously value wise they graded this out as a better option and we needed to find a new Jake eventually so I’m happy with the move.

  25. Hey fellas, found this book on amazon, just came out in January. Its called Border Boys and its basically a historical look at football in general but mostly focusses on the American players that lived close to Canada that came up north in the 30's and helped change our game. Specifically about the first time the Grey Cup was won by a western team(Winnipeg in 1935). Its written by a North Dakotan (Ryan Christiansen). I just got into it but it really seems like he's done his research. Thought you all might find it interesting. Thats Fritz Hanson on the cover who essentially became the first true Winnipeg Blue Bomber star back in the 30's. He pretty much single handedly won us the 1935 Grey Cup from what ive read(334 punt return yards in the game which is still a Grey Cup record). My late grandmother would often speak of his exploits 🙂

  30. He called it immaturity in his younger days that got him tossed from The League and by the time he'd got his head on straight he was too old for what they were looking for. Simply put, we are EXTREMELY fortunate to have a player that is "too good" for this league... (similar to Mike Sellers in more ways than one I believe)

    Covid-19

    People started to ignore the science because it disagreed with their opinion. Yes there was lots of info, but the science is constantly changing and public health was/is trying to keep on top of all the latest. I'm not the smartest guy out there, but I appreciate having the latest info always. I trust our public health officers and completely understand the difficult job they've had.
