    TC Report - Day Four

    Okay. Just got back from training camp and finally back in the office. Today was the first day that coaches from the Winnipeg High School Football League were invited on the field to take in the practice. We were originally told to stick to the sidelines but MOS came over immediately and invited us on the field and to go ahead and focus on whatever position we were interested in. I tried to walk around a bit but was always drawn to the offensive line, running backs and offense as a whole. I'll say this. we have some big boys on the Oline and Dline that can move very quickly.

  2. What a joke Rider Nation has turned into. Maybe you should rescind the invitation to your idiotic coach, as he's got far more to do with your dumpster fire of a team this year than Jeffery Orridge does. It blows my mind that you guys despise Orridge as much as you do, he's got nothing to do with why your team is such a disaster. Typical though, look for anything to cling on to the hopes that you guys aren't an absolute mess, it's just "Big Brother sticking it to us" Newsflash - this us against the world mentality doesn't do anything but make you guys look like a bunch of clowns.

  5. Thank you for being instrumental in leading this team out of a dark place and playing a huge role in leading this team back to glory. I'm completely convinced we would not have developed the culture of success to be a perennial playoff team and winners of the Grey Cup this season without you. Wherever you go from here I will always be a fan of yours and wish you nothing but success (except against the Bombers). Signed, A lifelong Winnipeg Blue Bomber fan

  7. Dear Retired Blue Bomber Alumni, I wanted to take this opportunity to thank you for your proactive retirement prior to the start of the 2018 season. It set in motion a cascade of Blue Bomber fortuitousness that would rival that of the prettiest sheep at Regina's county fair. For without your ability to assess your own rancid play at quarterback, and having the foresight to understand you would be a massive step backwards for us - even as a backup quarterback, we may never have seen the running prowess of Chris Streveler as QB. If you had not so honorably fallen on your sword and retired a

I really wasn't expecting to have to do a lot of work today. This is going to seriously impact my forum surfing.

    2019 Main Training Camp

    As mentioned, Neufeld and Harris were sitting out today. The first-team offence was : Matthews-Washington-Adams-Demski-Wolitarsky Bryant-Desjarlais-Couture-Gray-Hardrick Nichols at QB, Augustine at RB. I had a tougher time nailing down the second team offence, but it definitely had OIiveira at RB, Streveler at QB, Simonise and Petermann as receivers. Looked like the other receiver spots were Rasheed Bailey, Kenny Lawler, and Tim Wilson but I'm not 100% sure on those ones... I think they might have switched it up a couple times. The OL looked like Speller at centre, Koczw

    some thoughts... Firstly it appears a few guys have come to camp in better shape ..Harris looks leaner and faster..Poop as well looks more buff and a bit more lean...and still is so damn powerful. Faith too looks much better...Quicker and more agile...and in better game shape for CFL ball...he got knicked up in the one on ones but took turns in team session later so must be ok...3rd and 1.5...I dont see him as still a project...he has improved and is more expolive...i took time to study d-line a bit so more on that later... Receivers..not gonna focus on the projected starters too muc

Thank you for talking s*** about our team and fans on twitter which surely burnt all bridges and any chance the team would ever want your pathetic green tinted ass in blue & gold. For if you werent such an unprofessional POS we may never have uncovered the golden boy Chris Streveler. May your shadow never darken the earth outside the borders of saskatchewan. Sincerely Bomber fans.

Second, him and Streveler were super stoked that my buddy Ray and I had their jerseys. Thirdly, Matthews was there and looked very unstabbed. Good turnout - Strev, Demski, Willie, Stove (played a couple songs), Lawler, Sayles, Humes, Speller, Lucky, Rose, Nelson (walking boot) and Petermann all showed to support.

There are many posters here who never got to experience a championship and I hope you enjoy the hell out of it. Obviously I'm thrilled that Hamilton didn't win... the few thousand of them who come to BMO to watch their games are pretty insufferable as it is... but if they could actually win? It would almost be too much to bear. THANK YOU OSH for sparing us that fate. There are things that you (Bomber fans) and I (a Prophet of Doub

  33. Well Done. No excuses here if you don't have a chance to win with your backups why are they on the team. It's football injuries will always happen and are never an excuse. The Head shot at the end did not cause us to loose the game. Good teams don't leave it up to one call, but for the love of god they need to get that hit out of the game, It happens too much to all teams QB's and my feelings on that don't change no matter what jersey colour the QB is wearing.

Here's a brief introduction of Alex with some history: As a freshman at Alpharetta High school, Alpharetta, Ga., he led the freshman team to an undefeated season. Coaching changes at Alpharetta, prompted him to transfer To Buford High School, Buford, Ga. Because of transfer rules, he couldn’t play varsity until his junior year. He led Buford to Georgia State championships his junior and senior years. He virtually owns the

    Training Camp 2018

    I was there yesterday...cold in those stands. Most of the day was teaching so everything was split up in segments on the field, e.g. linemen one area, defence another and so on. When I first got there our drafted kicker Felix Menard-Briere was on the field by himself. He was kicking field goals from the 55 yard line. The first 3 or 4 fell at the 5 yard line, but the rest went through the posts easily and was very accurate. Not quite sure about his punting though. He was on the field all practice running the end zone by himself. There are so many receivers in camp

An hour later Wade's assistant hand delivers me and my coworkers tix to tonight's game. What a cool frikken guy. Thank you Wade! Thank you Bombers! I know you just gained a few fans for sure.

True to rumor…that new stadium does look pretty sweet… Riders take 2 penalties early… Bombers look pretty conservative…and pretty tight… Nichols throwing a lot of very short…and very poor balls… JFG has pass bounce off him for INT… Glenn tosses perfect TD throw to Holly over R. Carmichael…10-0 Riders look like they are playing with 13 men out there… Nichols sacked to end a pretty useless 1st quarter for the Blue… …as in 0 first downs…and 10 yds. on offense… Heath picks off a long Glenn overthrow, into double coverage… O’Shea wins 2nd challenge on IC… ……but Nichols misses

There are quite a number of them (CalgaryRiderFan, Beacon.x, Bingo_Arms, Huff Daddy and several others whose names just elude me right now) that are tolerable, awesome guys to talk football with but man, the majority of people over at Riderfans.com are the biggest bunch of deluded dumb as a post mouth breathers I've ever encountered. It's a shame, because every year I go to Regina for every single away game we have there, the people that I meet are awesome. It's a great city to go watch a game and the fans that are invested in

  41. Watched approx 45 min of camp this morning: A lady had her kid on a leash watching practice. Langkford nearly broke Johnson's ankles in a one on one, then dropped the pass. Johnson picked the ball up and flipped it to Langkford, who dropped it again. Ugly sequence for both guys... In goal line 12 on 12, Nevis nearly took the handoff he beat his guy so badly. In one one ones, I only saw an OL beat him once, and it was Intzandt. Ekakite looked better than Butcher today imo. Based on his size, it seems like he should have a better bullrush than he does.

    Only stayed for early practice, got a little wet outside and am made of sugar. First things first, guys I am actually excited to say that Richards is going to be okay! He was all over the field today and he looked faster today then yesterday. Took some contact and held on the ball a few times. This guy will be able to stretch the field for sure if he has a chance this year. He had 2 really solid box outs on some DB's today and Willy found him often. Gerrard Sheppard was back practicing, not a huge deal but made a nice grab so note worthy. Not a lot of guys going to catch R Smith

  44. I went to the first hour of rookie camp today. A few random observations: Garrett Waggoner was at safety the entire time. He really stood out...he has lots of energy and is very vocal. I see him as eventually a defensive leader on the team, a guy other players want to play for and lifts the performance of everyone around him. Addison Richards and Lavasier Tuinei stood out at the WR spot. Forget about the Richards/Etienne comparison as Richards is a big solid guy. And the hair is as impressive in person! Childs dropped an easy pass in the short passing drills. In the very short tim

I cried when they lost. 2002 - We lose Milt on the last game of the season. We lose Charles Roberts on the first play of the west final. 2003 - No Milt for the playoffs again.

  47. Not sure why you want to harp on Bluto so hard about this. As far as fans from other teams posting here, Bluto has always been one of the better ones and any back and forth has been IMO friendly banter on his part. And as far as support of the Argos go, why criticize Bluto about it when he is a Torontonian who actually supports the team. I have no time for trolls and people who come here for that sole purpose, but this board could be a better place if there was more commentary and opinions from fans of other teams. Their perspective can be interesting at times.
