    The idea of The Jon Ryan Express 2.0 is a romantic one indeed, but it should stay in the past. Sequels generally don’t outdo the originals. Besides, Medlock is fond of experimenting with finding new ways to punt the ball, as in getting different spins and bounces. He’s doing a great job at that. Anything to help our special teams. He wants to be here and he’s doing a great job. Let’s leave it that way..

    What a load of BS. Weeks before a draft they change the format? I agree with territorial protections but it should apply equally. Should be a round prior to the draft where each team gets to claim a player from their territory. This system just rewards poorly managed teams. And there should be at least a one year period before any change of this magnitude is made.

    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.

    Changing a rule two weeks before the draft is bush league. Worse when it only benefits two teams, one of which has been run like a tire fire.

    This is one of the stupidest rule changes I’ve ever seen. It’s unfair and imbalanced for utterly no reason. It’s hard to look at Ambrosie as anything other than an incompetent idiot after all this. He is obsessed with being an innovator but everything he does seems half-baked.

    Dude... We've been fighting for this for decades. It won't fix everything overnight... But it's a relief that my local governments are finally willing to treat me like an adult who can decide to have a cold beer in a parking lot by the lake before a football game and not have anyone get hurt by it. Like it should have ever been any of their concern...

    How can we compete with the Riders for Ryan? They can offer him twice as many punts this year AND he'll have a ton more field to work with. He'll break all kinds of records and be done by November so he can catch on to an NFL team late in the season.

    Coached ringette when my daughter went from 8 thru 18 and hockey when my son went from 4 thru 16 so have a couple theories... Ringette is a non- collision sport, much like basketball. There is a ton of contact, and getting more aggressive as coached by the more aggressive AA coaches ( remember this is a personal theory based on observation) who are coaching based on what is and isn't being called as penalties Ringette only has two on ice officials and most of the time they need to watch the ring , to see who has control,to watch the markings on the ice - those lines at the top of the circle and the crease lines are more important in the rules than in hockey, - so their vision is almost always down - contact above the waist is rarely called unless truly aggressive, and then often miss called based on the outcome that they see when they transfer their line of sight If ever a sport needed a 3rd ref., ringette is it - it's essentially playing hockey with two linesmen and no ref Also from a young age the coaches are taught to teach the boys how to take a hit and how to skate safe - shoulders up, eyes up, protect the head And never skate straight on into the boards to retrieve the puck, skate in at an angle- sadly I realized this too late to really help my daughter and those teams - but if you watch a ringette game you'll cringe how often a girl will skate full bore straight at the ring along the boards- Ever notice the lack of the Stop sign on the upper back of ringette jerseys ? So long way of me saying it's because of the lack of coaching safety from the youngest ages and the lack of the 3rd ref based on the misbelief it is a non contact sport

    He’s ‘super rich’, but we cannot see his tax returns. He’s a ‘high IQ genius’, but we cannot see his school grades. The Mueller Report ‘totally exonerates’ him, but we cannot read it. For the ‘most transparent POTUS ever’, Trump sure is hiding a lot from the American people. — Mike P Williams (@Mike_P_Williams) April 4, 2019

    Couple o' things: So far, only Barr (Trump's hand picked AG) has actually seen the report. What we have is strictly his opinion, after reading it. As far as "collusion", I posted a number of times about how difficult that non-legal term (the real term is conspiracy) is to prove in a court of law. Mueller also is considered an ole time, by the book prosecutor....who would also follow the long time, unwritten code that the DOJ cannot indict a sitting President. As far as obstruction, without seeing the report, hard to tell what information is in there about it, what the overall context is, or what has been possibly passed along (like the Flynn, Cohen, Manifort cases) to State jurisdictions. One indicator will be the willingness of the Trump administration to release the report - after all, if it completely exonerates Trump, you would think they would be fast-tracking it. If they attempt to foot drag, the question would be why? Another indicator would be if Barr is allowed to appear in a projected Congressional hearing. If not, why not? He should be able to answer questions about the evidence, he has already seen. While Trump and friends are racing around on the ole victory lap.....they might want to remember that as far as actual legal threats......the District of Columbia, Virginia, and especially the SDNY, are still working cases. Of those, the Cohen case (campaign finance violations) has some traction, based on evidence provided so far. The ultimate threat is stil the money trail. More than a few hints of fraudulent behaviour in Trumps' past business activities, in New York State, especially on the tax/insurance front. SDNY is also currently investigating the Russian money-laundering Deutsche Bank AG....who over a 40 year period.... loaned Trump an estimated 2 Billion dollars, despite both his widely perceived credit risk, and his overstating of assets, on a number of occasions. In the end I think this will end up being the most interesting back story.

    YEAH....But the CFL as the league can sit and have nothing going on..revenue in or out much longer than the majority of the CFLPA can...thats what he getting at...I doubt it comes to that anyway and just the standard media posturing, tho that being said the players have made concessions for years, and took a lot of things on the chin, and this time around they want a little fair compensation and treatment and have the best interest of their members now, and moving forward taken into consideration

    And that is why you support them, but you are wrong to think like that. The biggest thing eroding the middle class is giving rich and corporations tax breaks. All it does is download the burden onto the middle class.

    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.

    Sorry everyone. Life (and more pressingly work) intervenes this week, start of a new fiscal year coupled with a hunch or projects kept me working overtime on many things, with precious little time to devote to the bios. Took about 3 times as long as usual to crank it out, but it is up now. Thanks for your patience and the good debate. I ultimately decided to leave Mike Sellers off the list (sorry) since it was taking so long, we had 13 others, and he did not even crack 900 career yards rushing with the club. But I will say he may be the 2nd or 3rd most effective pass catcher out of the backfield (behind Harris and Lewis) the club has ever employed. If we had a fullback position, he would be a leading candidate (so would Harris if we modified his game) and who can forget him dragging the entire ‘Rider D that one drive in a pre-Banjp Bowl game without his helmet on. Just a tank, never used to his full potential because he shared the backfield with Roberts.

    Willard Reaves was a great back. Absolutely dominated his position in the CFL & was feared as he could deliver some punishing hits as a back & was strong enough to run over tacklers. On the next play he could finesse, dangle a tackler & then explode by him. He also had the advantage of a great OL blocking for him. Loved watching guys like Reaves, Miller & others play as they were all deserving of the praise heaped on them. However, I was fortunate enough to see Dave Raimey play. He played on a very bad football team. He didn't have the luxury of a great OL opening holes for him. Matter of fact, the OL that played in front of him was the worst in the CFL from 1967 thru the 1969 season. There wasn't a great qb calling the plays as Ken Ploen had retired to be replaced by the inept rookie John Schneider. There was no genius coordinator calling the plays just the hapless Joe Zaleski. Raimey had just one teammate who could be a threat as a receiver in flanker Ken Nielsen. That was it for the Bomber offense as far as personnel went. Raimey had to virtually do it all on his own. The result was he didn't have better stats than a number of other backs on this list. Yet between 1965 & the first 2 games of the 1969 season he rushed for almost 4,000 yards & was elected into the CFL HOF in 1989. That speaks volumes for a player stuck on not just a bad team at the time but a dreadful team! He was a CFL All Canadian in 1966 as well as a Western Conference All Star in 1965, 1966, 1967 & 1968 for Winnipeg. He was the CFL leading rusher in 1966. He was a dangerous kick returner as well with 3,234 KO yards for the Bombers. I know that this may sound like a cliche but he did put the Bombers on his back multiple times & carried that team as there was literally no one else that could do it. I don't see the nominees listed yet but once they are, he & Lewis will be my 2 choices. And no, Raimey was not an obscure player nor am I trying to impress anyone here with my knowledge. I'm trying to contribute & partake of that knowledge as I saw most of these players play. I known how good some of them were against their contemporaries. I too, am frustrated that a current player in Bryant won as a tackle over some other of the greats but it is what it is, I guess.
