    really tho much ado about nothing..some may get a sniff and maybe a workout, but majority are just grasping at straws and hoping to get some kind of income for playing this year..I'd bet 99 percent are back in CFL next year

    I bought in, more to support the league than a sense of ego or personal legacy. I respect that some people feel it is a cash grab, but I look at it as a decimal place in my long term support of the team and the league during tough times. I fully respect the hard work and dedication that the players and coaches put into the game, all with the goal of getting their name on the cup. I don't want to diminish what they've done, but supporting this initiative doesn't put your name on the cup, only on the fan base. I've been a season ticket holder since 1970, and rarely miss a home game.

    I’m not buying either. My name is already all over the cup...just not with the letters in consecutive order.

    Saw a thing on Twitter yesterday about how Fajardo declined to opt out, "in spite of having significant NFL interest"............... yahuh. As the water boy? A nearly-30 year old career-3rd stringer has significant NFL interest?

  20. So here is mine. I was vaguely aware of the Bombers as we entered the 1980's (in fact, Ray Jauch once came to my house for some unknown reason and I only sort of who him as the Bomber head coach but knew enough to be in awe of a big time sports figure as a young impressionable lad of 9, even if I had no clue about the team). My school was even asked to participate in the team's 50th anniversary celebration by running out on the field to make a giant number "50" in formation. I declined to join in, possibly the first, last and only time I would snub the Big Blue. I did later make up for it, as

  21. I've told this before but my mother is a Rider fan. I assume I'm adopted. She grew up in Saskatchewan, so I suppose it's not really her fault. Despite her poor character, she took me to my first football game on September 22nd, 1985 at Winnipeg Stadium to see the eight time and defending Grey Cup Champion, Winnipeg Blue Bomber face her two time Grey Cup Champion Saskatchewan Roughriders. We sat in the South East corner. Close to the field. The Bombers proceeded to pound the Riders 49-3. What a game. I don't remember much from the game except that the Bombers kept scorin

    While 29 new cases is still more than we’d like to see, it’s also worth mentioning that active cases (now 409) and the five day test postivity rate (1.2%) are both trending in the right direction.

    Anytime I see people whining about left-wing bias in "mainstream" media, I roll my eyes so hard it hurts. If the Con's want to get elected, they have to find a way to come back toward the middle, rather than going further to the right. Staunch social conservatism just seems so anti-Canadian. Canada has always been a (relatively speaking) socially progressive nation. There is nothing wrong with tightening budgets a bit and being smart with our money, but when you start talking about anti-abortion stuff, and not accepting Pride Day and things like that......that's just so wildly un-Canadian, to

    Two things I think that are important to the health of the CFL are providing opportunities for players to pursue NFL invites and having longer, more guaranteed contracts so that players are not FAs every year.

  36. First bomber memory: my dad attends the 1982 Western Final. Bombers had Moon and company on the ropes, but Kennerd blew the game. Remember vividly my dad being angry about that when he comes home the following week, giving a variation of the modern "you had one job" speech. Second bomber memory: September 24th 1983. My first live game. A huge week in Bomber history, Dieter Brock has just been traded. Starter Nickie Hall gets hurt, Clements comes on in relief with like two days of practice and he looks pretty rough, but Willard Reaves ran wild and we pave the Riders 50-19. I remember

    So after Woodward’s last book, Trump knew he couldn’t denigrate a respected journalist of his character, so instead he claimed that the sources were all lies and Woodward never got the real story from the Donald himself because Woodward did not interview him directly. So Woodward goes to Trump this time saying he wants the real story and can he tape Donald so everything is accurate, so Trump bites because his ego can’t be controlled, and Woodward gets all the dirt from Donny himself. No way Trump can claim mis-quote or fake news here. I almost think Woodward was playing the long con and the fi

  42. The Cup is won by the players and coaches, they have worked to earn their right to have their name engraved on it. Even if it is just a "fan base", I see no reason why I should get to immortalize myself on a part of the Cup as a fan. Already have my name in the concrete paving stone in front of IGF, so they have honoured my fandom in that fashion. JMO.

  45. Since we're all gushing over Strevs anyways, just thought I'd mention he is one of the only QBs I've ever seen that goes out of his way to make blocks for his teammates. Other QBs do it in critical situations (such as on a WR double reverse) but he's just straight out there looking to hit someone. Best example I can think of was in the Grey Cup at 4:05 of the shortened highlights, seals off #94 perfectly. https://www.cfl.ca/2019/11/24/gc107-recap-winnipeg-33-hamilton-12/
