  1. Hey guys - just wanted to let you know that yesterday was a pretty f-ed up day for me as I was extremely close to a huge accident in Kelowna that claimed 5 peoples' lives. Having been that close to the danger and near death it put a lot of things in perspective. Thanks for all your posts, I really need to focus on this right now as it was beyond a traumatic experience. I am so happy the Bombers are back, and I can focus on something positive right now. That is all.

    It’s locked but I just wanted to use my admin powers for the first time in years to reply to you and say We aren’t affiliated with the Bombers, nor do you have the “freedom of speech” to fall back on when you’re accessing a private online forum. Take your idiotic babble somewhere else.

  3. I've taken on a different anxiety, personally. Now that we have the cup, I'm terrified of ever giving it up. I've had two years of being mouthy about being the Champs and I don't ever wanna do anything else.

  8. it’s good to see that even after I’ve been gone a year and then some, Iso and TB are still healthy and annoying as ever. you love to see it. it hit me when I went to the grey cup in 2019 ... it’s easier just to be a fan of the moments and enjoy the team than worry about “well we were fourth place and made a late season surge do you really think we’re a prominent force to be reckoned with or do you think my insufferable opinion about our backup qb being unprepared for battle should go unquestioned” I drank from the Grey Cup after Andrew Harris handed it to me at a bar in downtown Calgary, surrounded by my closest friends. They could come in last place this year I really don’t care. I enjoyed it. That’s what it’s all about.

    well that's done, I got my second vaccination and in two weeks I can apply for my vax card. I celebrated by doing something I had been wanting to do for awhile....I bought a cotton candy burrito from Tee-Yah's (because the explained to me once how long these are supposed to last, and they would only last about 20 minutes wrapped in cotton candy, so I felt it would be necessary to have a ride with me, and I told them I would need two spoons to share with my ride, because it was kind of big anyway)

  13. A STATEMENT FROM THE CFL REGARDING THE XFL TORONTO — The Canadian Football League (CFL) released the following statement on Wednesday: “Our talks with the XFL, exploring the potential for collaboration and innovation, have been positive and constructive. While we remain open to finding new ways to work together in the future, we and our XFL counterparts have jointly decided to not pursue any formal arrangements at this time. We at the CFL are now squarely focused on preparing for August 5th and the start of our 2021 regular season, which will culminate December 12 with the playing of the 108th Grey Cup in Hamilton, Ontario. We are looking forward to this year and a bright future for our league.”

  14. There’s a few things being lost on the analysts that I feel like we should be paying more attention to. Won’t come up as prominently against Hamilton, since they’ve also returned the majority of their roster but our continuity + ability to coach the quirky parts of the game could lead to us absolutely taking advantage of Toronto/Calgary in weeks 2-4 as they settle in with all their new players learning new systems. Unfamiliarity with the schemes, league, staffs, etc leaves them wide open for being dismantled in an area where we always excel - special teams. May take a while to coach up the receivers or the defensive backs that are new to our roster, but guys like the Halletts .. no doubt they’ll be ready to go on special teams week 1. Next is that we’re returning almost every single piece in the trenches. Talk about age all you want, to be returning 8 of 9 starters on the OL/DL is huge and it’s unmatched league wide. Lastly, we still have a culture that lends itself well to being able to respond well to adversity. We already know the buy-in is there with our roster, these new guys should be able to take advantage of a locker room that is going to be solid enough that our new players should fit right in. No drama, no players like Banks talking about “will I play, won’t I play?”, that stands out as something that could be a big help in such a weird year.

Both just hit from 52. It’s clear to me Liegghio has the stronger leg — also haven’t seen him miss any of his roughly six kicks today.

    Andrew Harris is last years CFL MOP by a country mile and it's not even close. Fajardo got the nod simply because Harris got railroaded by our media.

    Since we are on this topic...some of you may have read this on my FB. If I am Max in this story...I do think I'd feel taking down a statue or two. The following was written by Elsa Baer Maendel - a resident of Fairholme Hutterite Colony - located southwest of Portage la Prairie Max Merrick and Paul Baer My dad was a mechanic at New Rosedale Colony, a big hearted one who would fix anything for anyone! Indigenous people from nearby Long Plain First Nations would come to his shop to get their tires changed or a motor fixed. The colony ladies would walk to his shop to have their lawn mowers fixed. He would drop everything to help and you'd get a good joke on your way out. My dad would invite his Indigenous friends home for coffee. Hutterites have a 3:00 coffee break where the table is loaded with pastries and snacks. Some of the names I remember are: Ronnie Woods, Lloyd Woods and Max Merrick. They had such a wonderful sense of humor and our family had many laughs with them! My parents had 9 kids, with some of them married already, so you can imagine the scene everyone at the kitchen table eating and talking, around one Indigenous guy telling stories. Max Merrick came pretty much every day, and our fellow New Rosedalers took to dubbing him 'Max Baer' He was my dad’s friend. We would go to his house to watch news on his big TV when there was an important event such as the Stanley Cup Final or 9/11. He would come to dad’s shop every day, and go to Portage for parts if they were needed at the shop. I remember Max telling us about going to residential school. He told us about watching some older boys who had tried to run away. They were brought back and received a good 'licken' and it cured him of trying the same thing. He told us his mother died while he was at school and he wasn't told until he came home for the summer and found her gone. He often told us this story and we could still feel “begreif” his hurt. I can only imagine the anticipation of seeing his mom, and then the pain of finding out she had died. I never realized how big the scope of residential schools was and how many children were simply taken from their parents, off to boarding school. What if it was my child? What if it wasn't what I wanted for my children's future? To be taken away from my arms, to be beaten just for speaking German or Hutterisch. What must it have been like for countless children to lie awake in a strange dorm bed crying for their parents night after night, and not receiving attention if they weren’t feeling well. I’m a helicopter parent if my children have an ordinary flu or cough. I make sure they get enough fluids, popsicles, ginger ale, comfy blankets, and I rub their back and throats with good oils. What if my children passed away, far from home, while being sick in a strange boarding school, receiving no attention, medical or otherwise? I cannot imagine that my heart could ever recover if this was my child. All those Indigenous friends of my dad were the same age he was. And while both my parents are alive and well at 78, all his Indigenous friends passed away a long time ago. That's no accident. That's what trauma does to people. It kills them young. Elsa Baer Maendel Fairholme 2021 In loving memory of Max Merrick

  32. Yeah Wilson is our Weakside LB (top 3 in the league easy) not a DB. Also TSN just posted a video calling Fajardo the LEAGUE MOP in 2019...I know it's just a typo or whatever, but this is the type of **** that makes the CFL bush league. Not the talent/salaries etc...it's the **** reporting and just total lack of professionalism from partners. Maybe I'm nitpicking but it drives me crazy!

  33. In all of our lives, there is usually only one place that feels like home. I have lived in four provinces and Winnipeg is home to me. When we returned after three years in Alberta, the sense of being where I belonged was overwhelming and got better every day. Its an imperfect city in an imperfect province, but its home, now and forevermore.

  35. The Bombers just made the best business decision of their lives. Somehow my buddy was able to swing 6 season tickets for $1200. Sounds like we ripped them off, right? Nuh-uh. I guarantee all 6 of us will spend $200/game per person (this figure does not include merch) at absolute minimum on beer and 50/50. I don't need Sportsnet to tell me that I'm not spending enough!

    Sportsnet has absolutely no right to talk about anything CFL. PERIOD. They are much more of the problem with the CFL then the fans ever will be. If anyone needs to put up or shut up when it comes to the CFL it's Sportsnet.

  40. Sports Net (and some TSN employees) are challenging fans who complained about the XFL talks to "put their money where their mouth is". And honestly that straight up pisses me off. I've spent a damn fortune on this team, but my spending habits are the problem? **** right off. Sure they're mostly talking about the major markets that are lacking....but the logic bending that needs to happen, to assume fans who took the time to care/complain about those issues are also the fans that dont spend enough is ******* insulting. Tim from sports net even talked about how successful other domestic leagues are...well (I'm assuming) completely ignoring the way their media/social media accounts treat those leagues. I'm so sick of TSN/SN and the CFL blaming the fans for the ******* mess they're in. Fans have been complaining for years about lack of innovation from the league and the lack of actual support from the media, but noooo it's all on us? **** you! Ok rant over...
