    Bomber News: 2019 Off Season

    I think that some people have quickly forgotten just how unreliable our kicking situation was just a few years ago. That we have secured Medlock for two more years is huge. Well done Walters!

    Loses that Calgary sustained so far..Duke..Williams Lambert and QB uncertainty for pretty much all West teams but Winnipeg, is so far shaping up to make the west wide open and if we can retain JSK..Biggie and land a receiver has to put us as front runners

    yes he had the most inside the 10 this year...I actually as well think this was one of his better punting years..he also started to tinker with his method/drops and the knuckling, curving ball he used often this year which made the returner have to cross the field to get it caused teams fits..also he kicked a ball that was difficult for returners to catch cleanly...later in the year our punt return coverage took a bit of a dip as we really missed Jones, Renaud..Gauthier at times and other key coverage guys who were hurt

    Honestly, I find myself hoping Kenny signs with AEW. I really believe I'm in a weird place right now as a fan of wrestling and I want something to spark my interest again. I've been a fan since i was a pre-teen and I remember growing up watching WCW and WWF - it was can't miss stuff for a lot of my youth and while I know that I may never have the same genuine interest in it ever again (people grow, tastes change, etc), I still believe I could support something if it was an accessible product worth supporting. WWE is god awful terrible garbage. I still find myself getting hyped up for certain things ... I go to a friend's house for a Royal Rumble party and a Wrestlemania party annually, I catch clips of segments if they sound can't miss (I don't honestly think this happened in 2018) and I always seem to keep up with the ongoing news related to WWE as far as signings, pushes, etc to see if there's anything that could ever pique my interest. I don't blame any of the performers for signing there or staying there - it's a business and WWE is a great way to make $ and lots of them are like me - grew up wanting to perform at Wrestlemania or whatever. I get it. I just can't get into the product. It's horrible. I remember being hyped for AJ, hyped for Balor, hyped for Joe, hyped for so many big names and the main roster formula manages to **** it all up. Damn near every time. AEW as a product gives me some hope. If they land some kind of deal (TV, streaming, whatever) that can get their product in front of some real volume of viewers, then I think they have a shot to be the real 1B to WWE's 1A - not in the sense that they'll ever be as huge when you're talking global footprint, but in the sense that they could put on a competitive product that could be akin to the Monday Night Wars in some form. Depends on who they get for talent as well, though. I'd love to see them try and get exclusive deals but maybe that's not realistic for a lot of the talent. However, give me a product that is potentially able to put Omega, Jericho, Pentagon, Fenix, the Bucks, etc on my screen on a regular basis? I'm all in on that, especially because I know the minds behind the product are smart enough to not have them doing stories where their manager pisses themselves or have them wrestle the same boring match 573 weeks in a row. It's too bad WWE has signed so much talent that could really make their mark in a new company. I'm still hyped for guys like Cole, Black, Dream, etc but I have no faith that they're not going to be just as mismanaged once they hit Raw or Smackdown as everybody else. Sad.

    I was listening to a podcast last night with Bruce Prichard talking about Gene Okerlund. What they brought up was back in the day when the wrestlers were shooting promos they would only tell them where they were fighting and who it was against and everything else was completely ad libbed. Bruce said Mean Gene was the best because they literally let the guy do his own shtick and had absolutely nothing scripted. Fast forward Gene comes back for the 25th anniversary of Raw and couldn't believe how many writers/producers they had and how the wrestlers had to all follow a script. I miss the days where the wrestlers own personalities would come through with the characters they played. The forced stuff just seems so awkward and so bland..

    Yes, he ordered an execution after holding a trial in an essentially ungoverned part of Canada versus someone who put a bounty on people because they're "different". That is a monstrously dumb comment and if you truly can't see the difference then there is no point in trying to have any further discussion.

    Hypothetically, if I was doing it, I'd have made sure the decision was apart of it. But if a very large media company was doing it, their deadlines would be such that it would be long wrapped by now. But if I knew people involved in such a venture I would certainly have suggested they be able to insert such a decision into the finished product.

    Let's say, hypothetically, you were doing an HBO documentary about Kenny, would "the decision" be a part of it or would you have wrapped filming and sent it to post-production by now?

    I'll save you some time (from the guy who wrote "Art of the Deal") : "Fear is the hidden through-line in Trump’s life – fear of weakness, of inadequacy, of failure, of criticism and of insignificance. He has spent his life trying to outrun these fears by “winning” – as he puts it – and by redefining reality whenever the facts don’t serve the narrative he seeks to create. It hasn’t worked, but not for lack of effort." https://www.theguardian.com/global/commentisfree/2018/jan/18/fear-donald-trump-us-president-art-of-the-deal

    As a wrestling fan its actually a lot of fun right now. You have New Japan's biggest show of the year just ending and their usual time frame for contracts to expire (end of January), plus the Rumble and all the rumours (that usually fall flat) of guest stars for that and the increased fun and interest that is the Rumble to WrestleMania corridor. Plus now with All Elite, the impact on ROH and the biggest free agent since...I cant even remember when. Lots of fun!

    You can blame Stephanie. There was actually a TV writer named Chris Kreski that no one talks about unless they're really into wrestling. He was there when Vince Russo was head writer. When Russo abruptly quit, Kreski was promoted to head writer. Being a legit TV guy, he would create story boards charting the storylines and people would make fun of him. He did it so he could keep track and make sure the stories were logical. WWE's highest ratings came under Kreski. When Vince decided Stephanie should be moved up as head of creative, Kreski left the company. Steph them embarked on the "hire TV writers" trend. When you have 50 writers on staff, they have to justify their existence and thus, every tiny detail is scripted. To a degree, Vince was a bit of a self loathing wrestling fan. He always wanted to go legit. Thus, they arent in the wrestling business. They are like Disney. So they think anyway. (Steph recently said WWE could be as big as Disney one day lol)

    Marginal (22 points vs. 19 points). I think the coaching change served as a wake-up call to the players and they then seemed to turn a corner, but then fell apart midway into last month. They're still only on pace for about 84 points, which isn't good.

    I agree. Everything about WWE is so formulaic. The way they shoot TV, the way the announcers talk, the commercial breaks, the slick everything, the matches, the booking...they need a major change in how they present TV from top to bottom.

    The word is out that New Japan has decided to maintain its working relationship with ROH. They had been scheduled to all sit down together this past weekend (All Elite included). New Japan sort of had to do that since they have the co-branded MSG show Wrestlemania weekend (New Japan/ROH). But All Elite thought they'd be able to keep working dates in Japan. And this decision might be what cost New Japan Kenny. Had he been able to maintain his lucrative New Japan deal and then work with Elite, it would make a lot of sense. New Japan seems to always be fine losing guys but Jay White isnt a replacement for Kenny Omega. I get the sense Kenny might want some time to rest and recuperate. The sense out there is that Elite feels confident in landing him. If their holding deal is lucrative enough, they just might. It doesnt sound like Elite has a lot of shows planned for this year so those holding deals afford guys time to do the indies they want and to take time off.

    You can put all the talent in WWE but if they keep putting out a bland, rehashed product, it will still be unwatchable. KO can be the best in the world, with outstanding ability, but the WWE storylines/bookings will bury him.
