    How many folks in Winnipeg would be willing to pay to watch an NFL preseason game? Would the Bombers be able to even half fill the stadium? I kinda doubt it.

    Dundon is cutting his losses long before 250 million goes up in smoke. Plain and simple and also very wise. Create a bad guy in the narrative so that his stock holders don't question how he could make such a reckless investment in the first place.

    I'm not against the idea, but not sure I'd pay to watch it. Maybe if they guaranteed the starters would play the 1st half, but I can't see that happening. Watching a bunch of guys I've never heard of, on teams I don't care about, play a meaningless game isn't appealing to me.

    I keep thinking that a city the size of Toronto couldn't get much of a crowd for the Bills, who are a big deal for southern Ontario peeps........how could the Bombers possibly make money off this? And the only way I'd want to do it is if the Bombers were going to make a killing...

    Also from Wiki: Ticket prices for the Series were announced in May, and averaged C$183 per seat. In Buffalo, Bills tickets averaged C$51 per seat. Crazytown. Here's the Wikiepedia article. Seems to be well referenced. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bills_Toronto_Series

    It’s the 3rd preseason game so traditionally that’s the game the starters play the most in.

    Excellent idea. Akin to a major concert. Why wouldn’t they? Big dollars. It’s not like Winnipeg is at risk of alienating cfl fans wanting an nfl franchise here.

    Faith Ekakitie has made me wary of college guys who couldn't earn a starting roster spot. Boateng at Fresno State is another this year. Maybe they'll prove me wrong, but I'm not raising anyone's stock just because they went to school in the US.

    Real testament to Buff's importance to the Jets... without him on the power play, teams can cheat on Laine and other lanes At even strength, teams take way more liberties with Scheifele than they ever would with Buff out there

    How do you figure? And I think Noeller's point in spot on. The Bills Toronto Series was a joke, despite the city's proximity to Buffalo. Maybe the idea of a one-off game could gain more traction but I can't say I'd expect a pre-season NFL game here in Winnipeg to be any more successful, regardless of the participant teams.

    Whoa whoa whoa, lets lower expectations a little bit....lol If we booked Feniz and Penta, maybe. No Bucks, they have their hands full chasing those guys around. Although I've had a long-time request in to book Kenny & The Bucks in Winnipeg...its just an enormous amount of planning. Hope to do it one of these days.

    I believe that the suggested day for this game is Friday, Aug 23. Problem is that the Bombers will be playing at Edm that day. Even if they bring an NFL pre-season game here that's not the game I'll be watching.

    I personally won't go to the game. But I don't have an issue with it being held here. Assuming there's some kind of compensation to the organization.

    It sure looks that way. And with Dallas being a potential first round opponent, the Jets' PK could be their demise in that series. You rarely get far in the playoffs with a lousy PK. It's just so frustrating to see this team play so well in one game and then so poorly the next. It just doesn't make sense. They mopped the floor with the Preds and then get their asses handed to them two days later... Sure, the Stars are playing desperate hockey but there's no reason why the Jets can't match that.

    Guy threw for over 450 yards twice at IGF versus the Bisons. Walters should draft him based solely on how well he plays in our stadium.

    Johnny looked like he did in the CFL last night, a pile of garbage. He made one good toss for 36yrds and not much more after that. He was pulled and replaced by Silvers. If you only had the sound on the TV you would think that Johnny was amazing and the Express receivers weren't good enough to play with the talent that Johnny Football is according to all the excuses the announcers were giving on why he couldn't connect on his passes. They also explained why he wasn't successful in the CFL. They said in the CFL they only have "two downs" and that the Canadian game "isn't really football" so that is why Johnny wasn't very good there. What a bunch of idiots lol! Funny thing is after Johnny was put back on the shelf last night, Silvers lead his team to a comeback win over the Iron.....with the same receivers Johnny was throwing too.

    Papa John's is getting "Shaq-ified." The pizza chain said Friday that basketball Hall of Famer Shaquille O'Neal will be its new pitchman, appearing in TV commercials and promoting Papa John's in other ways. Papa John's International Inc. said it will pay O'Neal more than $8 million in cash and company stock for the three-year endorsement deal. Bonus Story BDI has opened.
