    I'm not worried about what the fans think. No one here is playing the game.

    Hmm, I'll take your word for it but there are a few comments on here that have an elitist leaning. Pretty weird if you ask me, seeing as we are all just a bunch of super fans who want to discuss our team. On another note, while I never posted here before I sure am glad there's a place to spend all my free time talking Bombers. It's the freaking playoffs and we just beat the Stamps in Calgary and are about to do the same to the Riders in Regina in less than a week. Life is good.

    To me, Lapo proved (again - but this time in a 2nd half) that he is the best 30 minute OC in the league. For an apology....need closer to 60 minutes.

    And an old school rivalry. Bombers have won 10 (3rd) grey cups, Cats 8 (4th). Blue have played in 24 (1st) cups, Cats 20 (4th). Neither has hoisted the trophy in this century. However through history each team has played the other 9 occasions for the championship. I grew up with the Cats Bomber battling. For me, the cats and bombers is the patented Canadian Grey Cup match up. Wouldn’t mind seeing both make it to the dance again. Oops. I was in diapers when I first started watching the duel. Maybe it’s irony I could be watching in diapers again.

    Just wanted to say that I'm pumped for the win and the West Final. It was so satisfying to see the Stamps lose at home and the bewildered face on Bo Levi. I think we've got an excellent chance to win in Regina on Sunday! Go Blue!

    Luckily none of us are playing. We can be as overconfident as we like. The best parts of being a fan is bragging about something you don't contribute to and watcing the other fans cry.

    I'd like to believe that those of you with 20/20 hindsight knew all along that this was the master plan but I ain't buying it. I think that if Nichols hadn't been injured we'd be suffering through the dump offs, throws out of bounds, and sacks after holding the ball too long just like in years past. I think it's far more likely that after being forced to use Streveler this season that it was determined that he had some usefulness used in tandem with the new guy, Collaros, and that's what we're seeing now.

    That's why I put it up Mark, just trying to give you a chance for you to clear the air. FTR, I have been a long time member at both sites and enjoy the forum community of both sites. Each has their own individual redeeming qualities. It is unfortunate that on the occasion that many lost their forum and came looking for a new one after a big playoff win that the message they were met with was an attack on their football IQ. Most of the guys like Goldmember etc were original members at TEP, many with post totals in the tens of thousands over there. You can see how they might take an attack on the intelligence level of that forum personally. As a long time member here I know that is not your or Rich's intent so I am glad you have taken the time to let the guys, who don't know who the alpha dogs are, know what this forum's real thoughts are.

    The discussions here are far, FAR better with a lot more people who "get it". We have football people here.. Guys who've played the game, coached the game... Just really understand it. It's not just a bunch of "Yay local sports team" (okay, iHeart... But they don't count for anything..) type people. I feel the discussions here are, for the most part, more intelligent... Nuanced....

    WF - Bombers @ Riders

    I'm a little nervous about the general Cockiness I'm getting from the vibe here, and even myself I have to admit. Anything can happen in a one-off game. So even if we were the favourites, which I don't think we will be, nothing can be taken for granted. At this point I'm going to give MOS a pass as a coach and hope that he's keeping the guys focussed. We're so close to achieving a desperately-needed goal that if he needed a back rub I would fly to Winnipeg on my own dime and massage him. As far as the strategy goes against the Riders on Sunday, I think it's simple. Play clean football and have a balanced attack. We can't just run the ball between the tackles, we have to bring in big Chris, we have to throw the Deep ball occasionally, we have to keep the defense honest. If lapo calls a game like he did in the second half on Sunday I'm confident we will do okay. More than anything at this point, I'm just really hoping things turn out well and I can't provide much in the way of strategy or even commentary. It actually wrenches my gut thinking about how close we are to playing for the Grey Cup in Calgary, 20 minutes from where I live. I want this for our city, I want this for our fans. I don't care how they win. Just win.

    pretty sure Osh won't let over confidence and cockiness creep into things...This team doesn't seem like a group to do that...thee doesn't seem to be any one individual who thinks they are above the team here, and if one emerged then the leaders would nip that in the bud...I think Gaitor's dismissal is an example of that..regardless of the outcome I think it's gonna be the best game of the play-ffs to watch....

    Right. Bridge started that game. How about this? Next year we have Streveler starting every game with McGuire backing him up, and Collaros is kept in a hyper-baric chamber until the last game of the season?

    I post on both...enjoy both equally and don't really notice a real difference...the one thing that I notice at the other forum is that there are more fans there who are just that fans...and don't have extensive football knowledge or back ground in it, but are hard core fans, and they use the forum as an avenue to learn and educate themselves, and seem appreciative for it Here you have some savy vets of the game in varying degrees, which leads to a bit more intense and at times heated discussion, and a bit more mud slinging, but I find that fun and entertaining and rarely offensive in any way...if yiou can dish it...you gotta be able and expect to take it right back

    No they are not. They are just more familiar for you. The football IQ is every bit as high at TEP. Does TEP have more fan boys...sure...I'll give you that. Because the traffic is much higher at TEP you get a lot of new, and fringe posters and this forum does have a much better mechanism for discouraging dumb posts but it is massively incorrect to assume that people here know more than over there. There are many great and knowlegable posters at TEP.

    Meh. If they win the cockiness was justified. If they lose then at least you got to feel cocky for a week before feeling like crap. Savour the moment.

    Colour me shocked. The Bombers win and Captain Contrarian goes for the old tried and true "BLM played a bad game." TBurg is going to be the saddest Bomber fan in the world if we win the Cup. Of course, if we do, it will only happen because the other teams played badly.

    They didnt and cant handle our run..or oline ..we had 186 on ground in game with augustine in for Harris...195 on ground in banjo bowl..and 116 in final game where we only ran it 21 times..that of the piss poor game plan we employed that game So we ran for 497 yards in 3 games..and see more of the same in WF..especially now they have to respect the pass I wouldn't be surprised to see close to 200 on ground..if not eclipsing 200

    Just a head scratching amount of holding being allowed in this league this year. Saskatchewan and Calgary seemed to clue into this much earlier than everybody else but now I see it on virtually every offensive play by every team. It's why sacks are down and offence is up I suppose. Just frustrating when they don't even call the blatant holds on scoring plays though. I get why the league is doing it, but it kind of peeves me that we spend so much time building a dominant OL only to have the league try to level the playing field by propping up the less talented OLs. If the league were calling this as they should be, the RIder OL would be terrible.

    The only way Hughes gets those sacks is when the QB is dumb enough to run within arm's length, he's got no pursuit left in that tired old drunkard's body.

    Neufeld as well was key on that pull...after the first few games getting back up to game speed he has been more than solid and at the right time too...Images of him steam rolling Rider dlineman in last years WSF bouncing around in my head and taking Judge 15 yards down the fteld then tossing him down like a kid and calling him a biatch never gets old

    And that is why football is the greatest sport...speed, power, agility, strength and mental speed - nothing like it, especially in person. It is incredible what these guys can do given the speed of the game and size of the players involved. seeing it live and close up is incredible.

    yeah similarly towards the end of the game we wandered down closer to field level and holy **** you really don't appreciate just how quick a guy like streveler is until you are watching him take off right in front of you. That dude is fast holy ****. bottom line, watching in person so much better than the crap tsn gives us.

    This West final is shaping up into a similar situation as last years West Semi when we went into Sask and ran for 201 yards and held a 5 min T.O.P advantage. But I think this year this team is better built for this playoff style...Harris is not as banged up..Nichols was playing with a couple ailments, and our defense wasn't as good as this year, and we didn't have Jefferson which will be huge I'd be shocked if we didn't roll up the same amount of rushing yards, if not more as going in this year we have a motivated QB whom I am certain wants to stick it to the Rider's and his ability to push the ball downfield will open up more running lanes, and once the ground and pound gets going in a game it is really hard to stop it and it's really demoralizing on a defense.. We are as healthy as you could want, save for Strev's foot but that didn't seem to stop him, almost spurned him on even more, so if the guys lay it all on the line we win...because across the board there is more talent (and depth) wearing blue than Green and thats not just looking through blue glasses..anyone who thinks otherwise isn't a very good judge of talent

    I actually predicted a Bomber/TiCat Grey Cup at the start of the season however I didn't predict that the Bombers would have Zach Collaros playing for them against the team that took him out on his second play of the season! That's the epic part!!

    They are only closing the practices to fans as media can watch the Weds and Friday practices. Fajardo wasn't planning on practicing until Thurs (which is closed to the media) so we may not find out how he's doing until Friday.

    There are plenty of "old people to Canada" who don't wear poppies. Why are they immune to the rant. Even worse for them because they grew up being taught the history and significance. If the rant was about "people" not wearing poppies, I don't think the same outrage would be there.

    I am happy to stick around here long-term. To be perfectly honest, whenever I would lurk, the discussion often seemed slow and/or mirrored the discussion of the other forum and so I never felt the need to read what essentially was the same conversation happening over there. I am always happy to meet and interact with new fans, though.

    How come none of you are this hardcore? As Bombers advance, long-suffering fan hopes to end 18-year-long no pants pledge Chris Matthew says he's not getting ready to put on pants just yet, but remains hopeful https://www.cbc.ca/news/canada/manitoba/winnipeg-blue-bombers-no-pants-pledge-1.5355880 With the Winnipeg Blue Bombers advancing to the West Division final against Saskatchewan, could this be the end of Bomber fan Chris Matthew's 18-year-long pledge to not wear pants until his beloved team clinches the cup? Despite seeing the team advance in the CFL playoffs, he says he's not getting ready to switch out of his shorts just yet. The Bombers head to Regina for next Sunday's West final against the Saskatchewan Roughriders, after beating the Calgary Stampeders 35-14 in Sunday's West Division semifinal. The victor there will represent the West in the Grey Cup in Calgary on Nov. 24. Winnipeg's Janarion Grant, centre, runs the ball as Calgary Stampeders' Riley Jones closes in during the Bombers' 35-14 win on Sunday to advance to the West final. (Jeff McIntosh/Canadian Press ) In November 2001, Winnipeg Blue Bomber fan Chris Matthew made a casual bet when he thought his beloved team was sure to win the Grey Cup. Still wearing shorts in November, he said he'd switch to pants after the Bombers clinched the cup. "So ever since, I've been in shorts," he said. The only time Matthew will put pants on is if he has to go to a funeral — where the family doesn't know about the bet. "If they know about the shorts, I'll still wear shorts to a funeral," he said. 'They could beat anybody' The Bombers haven't taken home the Grey Cup since 1990 — the same year Nelson Mandela was released from prison. The World Wide Web wasn't even a thing yet. Despite his team being one step closer to the cup, he said they've let him down too many times for him to get too excited just yet. "If they play as well as they did yesterday, they could beat anybody," he said. Chris Matthew says he'll even wear shorts to a funeral if the family knows about his pledge. (Gary Solilak/CBC) "If they don't win, I'm fine. I've lived with this now for almost 20 years, I can continue, it's not that big a deal. For their sake and for the sake of every other Bomber fan, I'd like to see them win." His wife, Darla, says she's past the point of caring. "I don't care. He likes it, and I know that win or lose, he likes the shorts. And he complains, but I think he loves the attention," she said. "We have been walking down the street when it's cold out. and I have a fur coat, and he's in shorts, and people stare. And I just assure them, yes, he's an idiot." If you're looking to charter a bus to Regina for the big game, that might be tough on short notice, says Allan Mellon with All Road Tours. If you do, Mellon's advice is to get insurance, and make sure it's registered properly. "Since the Humboldt incident, people are weary of who they travel with. There are reputable companies in Winnipeg, just do your homework," he said. "My suggestion if you want to go to Regina ... jump in your car. Finding a bus would be very difficult." As for Matthew, he says he's saying put. "First of all, it's Regina, and I'd have to sit outside, in the cold, in my shorts, and I'm not gonna do that."

    See this is what I mean... collaros isn't generating any more yards per game than Nichols did AND throws more dangerous balls. Yet people act like he is amazaballs out there. He is running the blue bombers offense, just like matt Nichols did, just like streveler does (though more running from streveler)
