  1. Masoli hits some short passes, a 20 yarder.... .......then he throws perfect 40 yard TD just over #45 coverage An opening drive, that brings back some bad memories Bombers with a couple of 2 and outs on O... Yapping and bumping after the whistle... so far Ticats holding their own at the LOS Collaros rolls away from pressure.... hits Demski for 50 Zach then has all day.... to find Lawler wide open for 25 yd TD. 7-6 for the good guys.... Ham OL doing a pretty job of pass pro.... ZC scrambles from side to side...before throwing incomplete Not much running game from either team Bomber O comes up with another 2 and out Willie Jefferson starts forward, then drops back..... ....and has the ball thrown right to him by Masoil Back to back runs by Oliveria for first down.. But Bomber short pass game...not clicking Sayles with nice shoestring tackle to force punt Oliveria takes screen pass for 20.....the kid is feeling it... ZC avoids sack and hits Lawler for first down Zac then escapes pocket and scrambles for 18 Finally Zac hangs it up for Lawler who wins jump ball in end zone ...to cap 95 yard drive and a 14 to 6 lead. Oliveria bashes for another 9. Kid hits the hole HARD Zac hits Woltman, time running down Bombers skip the 50+ FG attempt....halftime Plenty more yapping and shoving out there.... Both teams trading 2 and outs. Hamilton OL clutching and grabbing.... .....as Bomber DL is dialing it up now Jeffcoat roller skates a Hamilton O-lineman Masoli feeling the heat and running for his life Cats give up a safety Cats shut out for over 30 minutes now.... Jones very active on D... ZC tries to dance around the pocket and is sacked ...as Ham D stiffening....as well Masoli sacked by Sayles, who is having a good outing Masoli pressured... dumps it to Banks, who fumbles, Blue recover But Demski drops 2nd down pass. Banks catches a couple, but Ticat drive stalls Neither team generating much O, right now Banks is one of the biggest whiners ever... Oliveria with another 10 yds and a draw for 10 more Kid is pretty pumped.....and should be Brady O....still going.....yet another 10 yards Blue OL taking over....at this stage Zack hits Wilson down to the 10 But Illegal procedure and can't punch this in Settling for a crappy 15 yd FG 19-6 Good pass D by LB Rocquemore Liegghio gets a great double bounce.....80 yd punt Masoli pressured by Jeffcoat, throws it away 2 minutes left.....Hamilton 2 dump passes for first downs ....but this business is eating up a lot of time.. ...as Bomber secondary laying back at bit Masoli goes to the well....one more time... But throws it right to Rocquemore, for the pick Game Oliveria still pounding for still one more FD. Tiger cats scored on their first drive on O... ....then was shut out for the remaining 55 minutes 0 turnovers by the Bombers.... Who truly are a meat and potatoes, smash mouth football team "Magic" Masoli.......hah Brad Banks..............bah Hamilton victory formation needs yet more practice Underdog Bombers still champs Do or Die still drinking

  2. Don't mean to distract anyone from tonights game, or to be a downer, but I have to get this off my chest: this game was very, very emotional for me. My Mom was a big Blue Bomber fan. And back in November, 2019, we watched the Bombers win the Cup together. We cried and hugged each other with joy, as she waited so long to see the Blue win the Cup (as did we all). Last week our family lost our Mom, at age 96. She lived a long and good life and she truly had a heart of gold (I'd like to think "Blue And Gold!"😉) and was loved by all who knew her. And that Grey Cup game was the last Bomber game she would ever see. It breaks my heart that she couldn't watch the game tonight, but if she could have, she would have had a big smile on her face, to see the Bombers win, especially after this last year and a half or so of the world going crazy. So, with a mixture of happiness and sadness, I'm thinking of Mom tonight. #ForMyMom #ForThe W🥲💔🏈

  3. Hey guys - just wanted to let you know that yesterday was a pretty f-ed up day for me as I was extremely close to a huge accident in Kelowna that claimed 5 peoples' lives. Having been that close to the danger and near death it put a lot of things in perspective. Thanks for all your posts, I really need to focus on this right now as it was beyond a traumatic experience. I am so happy the Bombers are back, and I can focus on something positive right now. That is all.

  4. ZC sideline pass to Lawler for 12 Then play action pass to Demski for 21 Oliveria adds a 10 yd run… …but 59 roughing penalty pushes them back ZC incomplete 2nd down pass, ends drive MBT almost picked on 1st down ….then pressured into short dump off on 2nd Nelson punt return for 15 and draws 15 no yarder Good field position….as ZC dumps short to Lawler Argos blitz……ZC lofts long pass down the middle to Bailey… …who has a step and jumps up to take pass in end zone ….for the 35 yd TD! 7-0 for the Bombers Kongbo stuffs run play….. then MBT pressured again –incomplete Blue D line getting after the quarterback….. Olivera rocked on 2nd down dump pass White gets outside and runs for 20…. MBT sacked by Jeffcoat and a hord of Bombers But illegal contact in secondary wipes that out Bighill nails White for loss of 4 Good 2nd down tackle from Nichols to force punt Oliveria crunched in backfield…loses 3 yds 2nd down incomplete has the Bombers punting Not so easy running against the Argos, tonight Lots of hard contact, by both teams, so far…… Miller misses tackle on sideline…25 yd gain But Argos are offside on back to back plays …..Toronto just boning themselves with the penalties…. On 2nd down, Zac doodles around 3 rushes…. …and dumps to Demski, nice effort short of the marker Oliveria gets some revenge….he just cranks an Argo, downfield… Both punters getting plenty of reps….. Jefferson cuts down White in the backfield….for a -4 MBT rushed…..throws incomplete…….punt Demski reverse sweep….nice run for 20 Then Nick catches screen…. but fumbles in Argo territory Jefferson gets into MBT’s face…forces incomplete pass MBT off the back foot to Collins, who breaks Miller tackle for 25 White stuffed: MBT throws to nobody: 49 yd FG attempt by Bede ……hits the upright, drops straight down…..no dice. Collaros hits FD passes to Lawler and McKnight… Hook pass to Lawler for 15, pass to Woltman for 9 Zac pretty accurate with the throws tonight… ZC finds McDaniels to the Argo 10… But Zac sack, brings on Merde for the 20 yd FG. 10-0 Bombers Did the Argos have 100 yds of O, in that half? Must of taken 10 penalties, though….. Nice 2nd pass knockdown by Nichols… Could someone tell Bomber receivers to run forward.. …after they catch the bloody pass? Blue kick coverage smothering…. White stuffed: MBT pressured: Argos punt Argos take another 15 for no yards Nelson is not the KR threat that Grant is….. Bomber O could really use a big play…. Swing pass to Lawler… Oliveria powers for FD Z hits Woltman, then Lawler to the Argo 30 Oliveria runs into heavy traffic, yet again… Collaros launches long throw to Lawler in end zone… …but ball is badly underthrown, and picked off… Argos still hanging around, only down by 10 MBT finally has some time….wide open R downfield… ….but overthrows and misses a sure 6 points….

White runs trap play, gets outside….30 yd TD 10-7…so much for controlling this game…. Really time for some Bomber O, here…. Collaros finds Lawler twice, but Bailey tagged on a hold. Oliveria thumped after catching screen pass…. Bomber O firing on 0 cylinders…… White has good run, but ball is stripped by Briggs… ….Blue recover deep in Argo end.. Argos promptly take a 15 yd roughing penalty… Lack of discipline killing them in this one… ZC throws up pass to the corner of end zone…. …to a wide open Demski…..TD!! 17-7 Argos take time count, then an offside penalty Arbuckle completing couple of passes, but drive stalls.. Miller getting picked on a bit, tonight… Brady O gets another 0 on the run…. McKnight catches pass short of marker…..punt again.. Bomber kick coverage still stifling…. Nelson finally gets loose on PR round the end for 30 Zac is incomplete, then sandwiched in the backfield So much for the O…. Arbuckle has time and hits a wide open guy over the middle… …unfortunately, the guy is Taylor for the Bombers. INT. ZC completes to Lawler…..Oliveria is stuffed, Argos offside… Zac misses Bailey…Bombers settle for a crap 22 yd FG 20-7, with time running down Pass completed, Alexander strips ball, Briggs recovers!!! But officials call pass incomplete. No time out to challenge.. Adding insult to injury, Bombers get delay of game penalty…. Brescacin hit by Nichols, rolling around holding his leg… ….as he is helped off the field…..looks pretty bad. Hansen knocks down pass…..Nichols busts up pass catch…. …..as he is having a pretty good evening, back there… Arbuckle hit by Jeffcoat…fumbles…recovered by Willie J. That is that…..tough grinding game… Bombers had to work pretty hard to get through I had to drink pretty hard, to get through...as well….

  6. Based on the wording out of the province this morning, it sounds like proof of having 2 shots will be required to attend games. "Large-scale, outdoor professional sports or performing arts events may also allow fully immunized Manitobans to attend, subject to approval by Manitoba Public Health. The province will work with sports and arts organization to implement proof of vaccination protocols for these events." If you haven't had your first jab yet, and are on the fence, go get your first jab today or tomorrow. There is just enough time if you go right now to get in a 28 day period, get your second jab, and have the 14 day period before you can get your proof of vaccination before the home opener!

  8. Look at all the Rider games and the DLine offsides they get...it's astonishing...that..and all the selfish undisciplined play/penalties...that's a poorly coached team ..inmates running the asylum there. On a different Note...the tsn panel... particularly Barker (whom I like btw,) either just can't/don't want to give the Bombers credit...or just catering to whiney Rider fsnbase with comments about the Riders having to deal with injuries..etc ..and that the results were inevitable and the wins were not truly indicative. Let me think...we missed a starting running back for 3 games...starting reciever (Adams) for 3...lost run stopping DT in first game...Started season without our Will... He still out..missed Demski for 2... Jefferson knicked for first 3...lost our starting Sam in TC and then his replacement in in game 1. Lost the Will replacemt in game 1. Have started 2 raw rookies in secondary...hmmmm....lost our returner in game one....had to replace Medlock...and we are....oh yes 5-1 It's called depth ..good coaching and a kick ass team culture in the dressing room.

  17. As do you apparently. For those scoring at home, in 12 hours we have learned from his own posts on various topics that Polar Bear: 1. Knows how to hack into live feeds of American networks to get free streaming of sports programming 2. Is a 20 year vet of Ebola and SARS research in a virology lab 3. Is connected to many major US broadcasters and therefore has insider rankings of most of not all sports play by play guys and their reputations within the industry 4. Has relatives at HNIC and therefore has access to management hiring memos 5. Spent time in New York in a top secret COVID lab under government control operating under a cone of silence unable to share his findings with the public 6. Is ostensibly a computer graphics specialist who knows how to debug in game productions 7. Has a trusted working relationship with a number of the Blue Bomber players and has the inside track on the injury situation with the club and because of his concern about the amount of arguing on a fan site, I can only assume - 8. Is an ebony pot having a conversation with a kettle

    I am a teacher and also immunocompromised. I got my first shot this week. It was neither being a teacher, nor having an autoimmune disease that qualified me to be vaccinated. My autoimmune condition puts me in the same risk group for death/hospitalization as those over 70. Haven't had any bad reactions other than some shoulder pain. With my second dose I'll have to be especially careful as adverse reactions are a lot more common for people with my condition. Even though I am at heightened risk of adverse reactions, I am 100% looking forward to a second shot.

  23. I feel like we should have a thread to talk about certain memories, players and moments in Bombers history. Inspired by my Charles Roberts thread it opened the floodgates thinking of moment during my life time. Anyways I’ll go first.. does anyone remember this game? Bombers down 32-14 with 9 minutes left in the fourth. Alex Brinks gets the start and does nothing all game long. Jyles comes in and looks like a bonfide super star; we come back to force over time, Deon Beasley intercepts Casey printers for a pick six in over time and does a front flip into the end zone! Possibly the greatest game I ever attended. I remember my buddies wanted to leave when BC scored to make it 32-14. I convinced them to stay and the rest is history!

  24. A few moments from 1953 - the year that "The House that Jack Built" opened In July, the Bombers brought in Tommy Thompson to be the backfield coach. Thompson played QB in the NFL (1940-1950) and guided the Philadelphia Eagles to championships in '48 & '49. Speculation was that Thompson was really in town to play QB. When training camp opened, Thompson was in full gear. He impressed enough that he was the opening day QB for Winnipeg. He would start 3 games total. At 35 years old & blind in one eye, Thompson was unable to play defence. Teams could dress 8 imports (all starters) so If he wasn't starting at QB, he wasn't dressing for the game. On October 1, Thompson was released as a player and he left town. Jack Jacobs was in the doghouse of Coach George Trafton for most of the season. In this era, it was a 10 yard penalty for "Coaching from the sidelines" if there was any communication from the bench to players on the field. It was up to the QB to call his own plays. The problem - Jack Jacobs had an obvious tell. Edmonton figured it out in 1952 and by 1953 every other team was aware too. If Jacobs called a pass, he had the offence in a spread formation. If he called a run, the offence was in a bunch formation. The linebackers would adjust based on the formation. Trafton tried to get Jacobs to mix things up so it wasn't obvious what the play call was but Jacobs wasn't able to oblige. With 3 games to go in the regular season, Trafton benched Jacobs and replaced him with Joe Zaleski. Heading into the playoffs, Jacobs was relegated to 3rd string QB behind Joe Zaleski & Geoff Crain. In the first game of the semi-final, Lorne "Boom Boom" Benson gained 163 yards on 23 carries including a playoff record 6 rushing TDs. On defence, the Bombers intercepted 8 passes. Bud Grant set a playoff record with 5 picks - the others went to Jack Jacobs, Tom Casey & Neill Armstrong. In game 1 of the west final, Jack Jacobs replaced Joe Zaleski at QB for the 2nd half of the game. Zaleski remained in the game at flying wing because Trafton wanted him to call the plays for Jacobs - that didn't work too well. All told, Zaleski started 9 games in a row leading up to the Grey Cup. Jack Jacobs was given the start for the Grey Cup game.

  25. Just want to point something out on the first half melee… I didn’t catch it all during the game… saw the Harris helmet rip after the fact… should he have been kicked out? Maybe…. But it seems a lot of people are forgetting in 2019 against Montreal when Vernon Adams ripped Bighill’s helmet off, tried to smash his head in with it… and still stayed in the game… Ripping a helmet off is definitely not an automatic dq…

  26. But that's exactly why it was a penalty. 1- Late 2- Head contact 3- Facemask grab and twist, actually pulls the QB to the ground by the facemask. That one is called 99 times out of 100.

  27. Tsn continuing to say.."Fajardo seems off today"...failing to clue in that Fajardo was finally facing a tough defense and the results were as expected. All they have is the short little pass and his scramble runs...needed because it was shown that it's needed cause that online is putrid. That's why he was always a back up...and still is really..if he needs to push it down field he can't...either off target...picked off...a poor 50/50 opportunity or a completion where the reciever needs to climb the ladder to catch... Prolific offence...yup...prolific in it's ineptitude...
