    Bomber News: 2019 Off Season

    TIDBITS - CJOB Special. (Shorthand version) Walters Moving on from Dressler Flanders - want more return ability - will see. Matthews - he’s focused on NFL, but ‘could’ end up here. O’Shea - regrets losing ‘good’ people, football and otherwise. Jefferson will fit right in. Intrigued to see him play. Ultra competitive West. Negotiations- players will work hard to get what they want. Better partnership and communication now. Couture ready? Yes. Gray will compete. No doubt OL can be as good. TC will determine who’s who and where they play. Streveler- expand his roll..still Matt’s team. Augustine - will have to work on ST & protection. Will be competition 2 spots open on Rec. Petermann & Simonize - both improved. Knox to Wilson. Wilson was slated for MLB. Mexican player in camp? Looking at it. Globalization- to improve revenue streams. Likes the big thinking. Nichols knee injury? Into good training. No knee concerns. Wants to be more consistent. Harris - doesn’t know where the money’s coming from when asked of teams signing Free Agents. Brown & Tait - negotiations? Brown brings up a fund for injuries. Tait - guranteed contracts? No go. Pie is too small. Sask. - Tait says it all depends on Collaros...otherwise - yeesh Brown says they’re going to be terrible and hopes they’re terrible.

    I hate that ******* ginger with a fiery passion for all he did to us over the years..............but............I respect the hell out of him as a CFL QB.

    My opinion on CFL 2.0. We are all here, I would assume because we think that the CFL is the most exciting brand of football right? Why would we not want for people in Mexico, Austria, German, France, Finland, ect, to think CFL when they think football. Share what we love with millions more people seems like a no brainer.

    I've said it before, and I'll say it again, the ratio is EXTREMELY important to me. I'd rather watch a team of all Canadians than a team of all Americans. The NFL can have all Americans....I want a league that's about MY country and people who were born and raised and went to school here!!

    Zontar, you handled the criticism of your hometown from Bluto pretty well & your response was diplomatic. I'm impressed. If that was most Rider fans, there'd be a big meltdown.

    It's the "slippery slope" that gets me the most. I'm terrified of getting to 0 and I'll have almost no reason to watch anymore. I know I'm in the minority but I watch for Canadians... The rewlnones who come from Canadian HS to CIS to CFL. That's the league, in my eyes...

    Simonese I think could grab that outside spot..regardless of ratio...He has the skill set for it and the body type to succeed there...now after a full season on the roster last year, an off-season to digest things after basically being out of the game for the better part of 2 years he should be able to come into camp at 100 percent and just play his game. you seen last year he has the skill as he roasted 2 of the top DB's in the league and he earned his chops on the special teams too..and if it came down to a decision between him and Peterman to be on the roster, or grab a starting spot then the wise bet is on Simonese as he has way more upside and potential, not to mention being in a spot to be more impactful..looking forward to TC to see how much he has progressed

    The last Grey Cup in Calgary was my absolute favourite non-Bomber live football experience. Not because the game was great or anything but because the annoying as **** rider fans were being obnoxious all damned day and you could hear their collective hearts all shatter at once and the sound of silence after the too many men penalty was the most glorious thing ever. But yeah, those prices are a bit stupid to sit in lame ass McMahon Stadium.

    It should take at least 2 years to change any rule, probably even more. Changing the rules every off-season and even mid-season is a significant part of the problem. Maybe if the rules were the same from one year to the next the application of them by the refs and command centre would improve.

    https://en.oxforddictionaries.com/thesaurus/progressive It isn't misleading and has literally nothing to do with anyone's opinion. They are synonymous terms, with the word progressive having its origins from the Latin word progredi, which literally translates to advance or forward.

    I’ll tell you why I’m not in favour of reducing the ratio, there’s already good Canadian players (Simonise & Peterman for example) that Already don’t get much of an opportunity to play. I’m not sure why we would want to diminish that further.

    Keep the ratio where it is. It dropped from 10 starters to 7 and then down to 6. It should NEVER drop any lower unless the league expanded to 12 or more teams. It is the CANADIAN Football League and it needs to have as many Canadian roster spots as possible. Most domestic leagues around the world have rules for the number of starter spots and roster spots for its players. It help promotes the sport within the country - both from a developmental and commercial perspective. It is short-sighted and lazy to lower the ratio and "let the best men play" as it will discourage participation and development of football players at the lower levels. This will in turn lead to fewer quality players being available to make the jump to the pros...in turn, this leads to demands for a lower ratio and the cycle continues...This doesn't even factor in reduced interest from the Canadian audience with fewer Canadian players in the league. Reduced TV and live attendance are likely to follow.

"absurd" : Contrary to reason or propriety; obviously and flatly opposed to manifest truth; inconsistent with the plain dictates of common sense; logically contradictory; nonsensical; ridiculous; silly.

    Simionise I really hope wins job over Petermann in camp because he has the skill set that that they need. The big down the field receiver. Type of guy who catches only 50 balls but gets 1200+ yards.

    There's another factor here- the more eyeballs watching CFL football, the more that advertisers are willing to pay. Multi-national corporations like Coca Cola, Adidas etc are willing to fork out big bucks to reach international audiences. Big foreign ratings are not going to come immediately, but its always wise to build for the future.

    National Combine Invites

    I honestly will be shocked if Betts shows up. He's a legit NFL prospect, I'd think he'd have many better things to do than show up to this thing. Excited to see some of these guys though ... surprised Oliviera isn't attending, but he's probably one of the guys that has NFL aspirations instead, along with Fontana and Mayala. Gittens Jr, Lenius, Savard .. good group of receivers. Absolute bunch of trash for anything on defence aside from the DL though. That'll make it tough to get a good read on these receivers. I still say we look to take Kongbo at 4/5 if we possibly can. Not sure he falls that far but hopefully injury concerns drop his stock a bit. We can afford to risk one of those first rounders. Something like Kongbo and Simba would be a good haul for us.

    Paul Maurice after seeing the Jets trades today (excluding Hayes)... Maurice: You cheap son of a *****. Are you crazy? Those guys are idiots! Chevy: I got a good deal on those boys. Scout said they showed a lot of promise. Maurice: They brought their ******' toys with 'em! Chevy: I'd rather have them playing with their toys than playing with themselves. Maurice: They're too dumb to play with themselves! Boy, every piece of garbage that comes into the league, you gotta buy it.
