    She's not anti semitic, she is critical of Israeli conduct. What's wrong with that? for instance, Israel just "annexed" Golan Heights, which is part of Syria, are building thousands of homes on Palestinian land, and are now proposing annexing that land. Same as Putin "annexing" Crimea. This is what she's critical of: I agree with her. This proposed law is wrong. Its embarrassing for Jews. And it gives ammunition to the real antisemites. Jews get special treatment. Jews control Congress. For what it's worth, I'm Jewish. There's more than enough real, vile, anti semitism in this world, no need to make up phoney anti semitism for political gain. That just makes it worse.

    Bomber News: 2019 Off Season

    RHÉANNE M. @WPG_BLUEBOMBERS SHARE WINNIPEG, MB., April 16, 2019 – The Winnipeg Football Club today released its 2018 annual report and announced an overall operating profit of $2.6 million. “We are pleased with our overall financial results for 2018,” said Winnipeg Football Club President & CEO, Wade Miller. “These results are a testament to the strong support from our fans, season ticket members, and corporate partners. Our team should be proud of our financial results.” Total operating profit was down from 2017 as Investors Group Field saw a much quieter year in 2018 with no concerts or other major events other than the Manitoba Marathon. Total operating revenue reached $33.4 million (an increase of $970,000 over 2017) and is attributable to the Club’s decision to internalize food and beverage operations at Investors Group Field in 2018, thus not only improving the game day experience but also earning 100% of the revenues, less the associated expenses. This was offset by decreases in game revenue which was down $1.4 million (10.5%) as the Club did not host a home playoff game in 2018, and stadium management revenue which was down $1.8M in comparison to 2017. Operating expenses totaled $30.8 million, an increase of $3.4 million over 2017. While the Club continues to invest in its on-field product, overall football operations expenses increased in 2018 by $470,000 as a result of the Club’s success in playing in both the Western Semi-Final and Western Final playoff games. There were expected increases in expenditures in marketing, administration and game day expenses associated with bringing food and beverage into the Club’s internal operations. There was also a decrease in overall stadium occupancy costs of $830,000 as a result of fewer non-football events at Investors Group Field. Consistent with prior years and since the Club moved to Investors Group Field in 2013, the Club alone continues to fund the public transportation program for transit and park and ride services to and from Investors Group Field. The Club has operated the public transportation program since 2013 and has paid for all expenditures related to the program, totalling over $4.6 million. In 2017, Triple B Stadium Inc. formally acknowledged their legal obligation to fund a portion of the public transportation program, retroactive to 2013 and onward. The Club will continue its efforts to recover the payments due from Triple B. The Club recorded a payment to Triple B of $2.7 million based on the Club’s available Excess Cash at December 31, 2018, as defined in and required by the Club’s Management Agreement with Triple B. This is the fifth scheduled annual payment the Club has made to Triple B, fulfilling the Club’s ongoing obligations. Payments will continue over the next four decades based on the Club’s Management Agreement with Triple B that requires the Club to use its best efforts to generate sufficient Excess Cash through the collection of entertainment tax and facility fees to be applied to the annual payments. “Meeting our financial obligations continues to be one of the top priorities of the Winnipeg Football Club.” said Miller.

    Of course it doesn't exist. The really absurd part is that this attack comes from Trump, who found some "good people" in a group of swastika wearing, torch bearing, Jew hating, Synagogue threatening, hardcore, American nazis. And he does it to rile up his base, who hate both Muslims, and Jews. Double win. good People:

    This is laughable. She's attacked the policy of a state, not "Jewish people". Nice try at the faux outrage and distraction.

    Schenn really looked like a ***** in that scrum with Buff. Punching a guy in the back of the head, while he's being held, and then backing off when he gets loose should be pretty embarrassing for him.

    they don't have much else, so give them credit for being able to be so angry and morally shocked and outraged at the unfairness of it all, while having to work with nothing. Their policies, scant though they are, are worthless at best.

    Calling it now... Palps is Darth Plagueis- always was. Plagueis groomed Palps, then took over his body, was looking to take over Vader's body- but he got burnt and needed a new body- hence why his interest in Luke, that didn't pan out so, he skipped into a new body (don't know who yet) and is trying to prep Kylo rens body for take over...

    See- that is what irks me the most about this, why can't you be critical about netanyahu's policies? If you do, you are labeled an antisemite- often by non-Jewish people (usually for political grandstanding), it's insane and ignorant at the same time. it's not the Jewish people that I am criticizing ... it's netanyahu's policies.

    I would also have a category for top tier up and comers for guys like Gray. I know some people have this mindset that any player is just a prospect until they prove it. However, no CFL GM is going to trade their first round picks for 2nd round picks straight up. You'd be laughed off the phone if you proposed that trade. So yeah.. There's a difference between a guy like Gray and a guy like Couture/Speller. Id also have a separate category for Ratio Breakers Allstars and guys who were allstars at a position where Canadian starters are relatively easy to come by. I think all the proof we need that the bombers have good confidence in their replacement Canadians is that they seem to not have much of a plan for their first round picks this season and are willing to look at offers on them.

    Why is conservative politics such a natural home for white supremacists?: Neil Macdonald "Why is it that white supremacists, from the neo-Nazis who threw celebratory salutes the night of his election, to former KKK leader David Duke, to the Charlottesville torchbearers, to the New Zealand murderer, or Cesar Sayoc, the Florida bodybuilder who sent explosives to Trump's critics in 2018, gravitate right, rather than left? Why is conservative politics such a natural home for white supremacists? Canadian conservatives might ask themselves the same question. Rather than whining about how unfair it is that Liberals are associating Andrew Scheer with Faith Goldy — an obvious white supremacist (a label she rejects) who proudly advocates for "European identity" and "white identity," and who has contributed to a neo-Nazi podcast — they could instead reflect on why in heaven's name he appeared on her online diatribe show two years ago." https://www.cbc.ca/news/opinion/conservative-politics-1.5099222

    TrueBlue4Ever, Raimey never had to take a back seat to Lewis. They were backfield partners in 1965 & 66. He got a thousand yards rushing in 1966 while playing with Lewis. I think Art Perkins was the fullback that year. What a million dollar backfield that was with those 3. Raimey, as you said, had the misfortune playing on some really baaaaaaad teams from 1967 thru 1969 so he doesn't get the recognition he should have from modern day fans who know very little about him. Thanks to the CFL never caring about or embracing its past. Dave Raimey was a star at halfback. The proof being that he's in the CFL HOF & how many other Bomber backs on that list can say that?

    I know that whenever I say ignorant and hateful things about sensitive topics involving the mass murder of thousands that it is hate speech when I am accurately quoted within context of what I said. Worse still if someone tweets video of me saying these comments to a crowd.
