  1. Nice to have an idea how the QB corps is going to look for 2020. I'm still curious what happens with Streveler but I hope he's in the mix and can continue to develop. Congrats on the new contract, Zach!
  2. Nice histrionics. You know, I think others here would be willing to take you seriously if you actually presented evidence for your ridiculous comments. Resorting to whataboutism and deflection is not a very respectable or rational way to make a point. In fact, it makes you look like nothing more than a troll. Which is to say nothing about your horrid grasp of the English language. The word you're looking for is hearsay. Hearsay. Once again: hearsay.
  3. I bet you're also butthurt he went and bought some donuts, too. https://travel.gc.ca/destinations/china https://www.cbc.ca/news/health/cornavirus-screening-1.5435523 https://globalnews.ca/news/6446395/wuhan-coronovirus-canada-airports/ You do realize a gov't can't just issue travel bans, right? Speaking of putting down the ******* bong and all... Only in your case, it's filled with meth.
  4. Aaaand he's now been scratched for tonight's game: Methinks the coach is just chucking turds at the wall hoping something sticks... What a ****-show.

  6. I'd say your interpretation is correct. The WFC hasn't thrown Nichols under the bus by letting him know their plans moving forward for 2020. He's a pending FA, anyway. https://www.merriam-webster.com/words-at-play/why-do-we-throw-someone-under-the-bus
  7. He isn't wrong. Remember 2015? The blue line was alright but the forwards bought into playing from the defensive zone out, with a focus on sound checking, closing lanes, and collapsing toward the net to minimize high danger opportunities. This season is not dissimilar apart from a way better netminder and a more gifted top 6. But to a man, they are playing **** poor defensive hockey, giving up way too many shots and more high danger chances against than any other team in the league. Watching them defend at times looks like a horrendous free for all. Whatever system is in place, it's not being implemented well or consistently. The Jets are fast - when they skate. But when they don't, which seems to happen often this season, all that talent is meaningless. That's exacerbated by the porous blue line and the injuries. If Maurice is the fall guy, so be it. But I can't see his replacement having much more success for the balance of the 2019-20 season*. I maintain we're already looking at next season territory with this team. * I'd love to be proven wrong, to be sure.
  8. There's a difference between firing a coach for a team underachieving despite its roster (see Laviollette or Gallant) and firing a coach because the team is devoid of talent and depth at key positions (see Babcock). As for an immediate difference, that's a possibility, much as we saw with the Leafs when Keefe took over coaching duties. But they've since come back down to earth and are now on the outside looking in. A temporary quick fix doesn't remedy things like depth issues or injuries. No doubt Maurice and his staff have to wear this ineptitude and maybe Gallant is the man to take the helm. However, I still think this season is a write-off based on other, far more glaring problems with this team.
  9. We have no idea what was actually discussed, so it's probably best to not assume anything just yet. This whole situation puts the Bombers in a bit of a precarious position. It'd suck to see agents use this as leverage for the respective clients.
  10. What exactly would that accomplish right now? A coaching change wouldn't solve the injuries. A coaching change wouldn't solve the craptastic blue line. A coaching change wouldn't solve the Byfuglien fiasco.
  11. https://www.cbc.ca/news/technology/betelgeuse-gravitational-wave-1.5433653 It'd sure be something to witness such an event in our lifetime.
  12. https://globalnews.ca/news/6440682/canadians-criticize-trudeau-after-visit-to-oh-doughnuts-bakery-in-winnipeg/ I guess supporting local businesses is too "progressive"...?
  13. Not good enough for what...? I mean, they finished second in the league in 2018 and second in the division last season.
