    I wouldn’t be able to tell you how many times Kyle Walters has been asked about the the Muamba situation. And, he kind of expected it during in this press release. I think, to clarify the issue, he put the offer/ask in perspective. He told the fans he made a good Bomber offer. The request by the other side was for the highest pay for a Canadian player on the team. It wasn’t going to happen. I think the Bombers were patient enough, and realized early, that it wasn’t going to happen. Many can put the blame on whomever they want, but really, there is no blame. Offer, counter-offer, it’s all part of sports. Do the deal or don’t...live with the consequences. And move on.

    Questionable tactic for what? Contract negotiations? Negotiations are done, Bombers gave their best offer and were declined. His comment is more for the fans than Muamba IMO. If it was meant solely for Muamba and his agent, Walters wouldn't have said it in an interview. This is a PR move for the fanbase to let them know why we aren't signing him.

    Pretty sure that carrying /throwing a player out of bounds is not a part of this, sort of like how you can't load a running back into a cannon and fire him into the endzone.

    I don't understand the obsession with Muamba, he isn't the same player we had and only goes where the most money is. Personally I'd rather go with an american and play a Canadian elsewhere.

    A lot of those changes seem like change for change sake and I hate that. Why give the refs more to worry about? They already can't handle the workload they already have.

    Clearly, for Muamba, it's all about the short term dollars. How much money can I make this year? Now, on the one hand I get it. Football careers can be short and there's no guarantee that there will be a "next year". So I completely get why he originally left us to go to the NFL. But since he's come back, he's been little more than a merc. I wonder if over the longer term, he would have made more money by committing to a team for a longer term. Sadly, he's someone that might have become one of the great Canadian players, like a Doug Brown, but now, he's probably going to be remembered simply as a guy who chased the money for as long as he could. Oh well, if he's happy, then good on him.

    i yeah, I think this makes Jacquie's point -- a legit GOAT like Milt doesn't even have a .500 record, it's tough to say anything about a football player by looking at their W/L. (except maybe that Milt was more patient than the Bombers deserved.)

    If Muamba didn't like it he could always change agents. My impression has always been that he is a guy who cares about money first. I remember after we drafted him people called him out for tweeting at Shomari Williams (the number one pick from the year prior) asking him how much his signing bonus was. Muamba is all about the money, no doubt in my mind.

    I wonder how much money he has lost since coming back to the CFL in bonus money that teams were to pay him...but released him prior to him getting it...compared to if he had just signed a fair contract..for good money and produced some longevity in one place

    I should have read that tweet more carefully... The guy who tweeted that is a known troll & Jones hasn't even met with USADA yet. I was wondering why more people weren't talking about the suspension! lol That being said, that's in the ball park for what people are expecting USADA to hand out as punishment.

    I sure would love to get a walters bomber jersey with the number being the year we win a GC.... get er done boys. In the presser it seemed like they are set on starting newf on the OL as the 7th NI. Which worries me to be honest. I hope one of our young NIs else where steal a job. Especially coates. He showed the flashes weve seen with other NI wrs before (most recently JFG) in that he came in and caught every thing thrown near him. But what I really dig is in general how he plays football. Getting down field and blocking for team mates, never giving up on plays, that blood n guts NI special teams pro. Ive always loved wrs that get after it with throwing blocks. Its contagious, and leads to all kinds of great things for a team.

    Well walters said he wanted to be paid more than Andrew Harris...so not sure where you would think that wasn't true to what Muamba wanted..Pretty sure Walters wouldn't stand up at a presser and flat out lie

    That's exactly right. Kyle, very politely and very professionally, just effectively told Hardaway that he doesn't appreciate the way Hardaway is playing the game. He virtually told all the other teams what he was willing to pay, and that it was in fact a big, generous offer, but that the Bombers are not going to get into a bidding war. He left the door open just enough that Muamba can come back in if he wants to, but there are no further negotiations to be had. Well Done Mr. Walters!

    Two positives. 1. He owns the record. 2. This injury only adds to his acclaimed work as a Civil War reenactor.

    I like the fact that Walters has spoken publicly about this. Gives the "we just let him walk" folks a chance to see that sometimes you just can't justify signing someone for whatever it is that they think they're worth. Henoc wanting to be paid more than Harris, someone who's giving his all for this team and is proving his worth over and over? Ya, not bloody likely. At the same time, it lets the Al's know that we're out, so feel free to adjust your offer accordingly. Good for you Walters!

    This meme needs to die. The Liberals are not a left wing party. They are the very definition of a middle of the road party. Campaign on the left govern on the right. They have more common ground with the conservatives than they do with the NDP. The fact of the matter is that NDP supporters are just desperate to pretend that they are not a fringe party. They'e the ones that are out in left field while the Conservatives and Liberals are battling over the middle ground. If you vote Liberals thinking it's going to be in any way similar to the NDP you're gonna have a bad time. With the Liberals and Conservatives you're going to get the same basic style of government, just the Liberals might make some more noises about social progress where as the Conservatives are busy trying to get their idiot base to keep quiet about their social conservatism because they don't really want to go down those roads but will throw them the odd bone.

    Calgary Stampeders have signed former Bomber Troy Stoudamire, only after thinking long and hard if they ought to go to such lengths to make him a member of their team. The rest writes itself.
