  1. Okay, so the off season officially begins now that the Grey Cup is over. Lots of topics for discussion in the months to come with the Bombers & the League. A new CBA needs to be negotiated sooner rather than later. Will there be an eventual agreement or a lockout? How much will the salary cap go up? Randy Ambrosie is on record that wants the cap to significantly go up so that is a positive. Will Bo Levi Mitchell sign with an NFL or perhaps another CFL team? What about Mike Reilly & Trevor Harris who are also free agents? There's a new start up league called the AAFL & there are legit concerns that it'll draw star CFL players away or hamper free agent signings with CFL teams. Coaching changes in BC & Toronto. The continuing evolving story of the expansion Halifax Schooners & possible exhibition games in Mexico.

    Any snowmobilers in here ?

    So, a group of 7 Calgary snowmobilers were out in the mountains near Invermere, BC this past Saturday afternoon. One of the snowmobilers went off the trails & started to high mark on the mountain triggering an avalanche that killed 2 of them. I wonder how he's feeling these days knowing he killed two buddies? Totally irresponsible. The entire Rockies have been on avalanche alert the past couple of weeks. shouldn't have been doing what he did. Every winter, a number of snowmobilers die in avalanches out here.

    Around the League: 2019 Off Season

    I met Robin Ross when he was HC at Western Washington in Bellingham, WA. My son was considering playing there. We had some discussions & he may have gone there but WW dropped their football program suddenly & that ended that. Ultimately, Simon Fraser took their place. My son ended up playing at SFU three years later so in a sense he did kind of play there. A lot of alumni involved with SFU never understood why the AD at SFU never hired Ross. He knew the Conference SFU played in, the teams & he knew how to win. He was available & the AD at the time hired other guys with no success.

    Bet the Riders are so into Jones giving them advice at this point.

    I have no problem with Jones wanting to better himself but he signed a contract extension & should honour his commitment., There should be no "outs". if he wants a new contract okay then he got one then he can't leave.

    Jones & Hufnagel almost had fisticuffs in the Stamps office when he told Huff he was leaving.

    Such a typical dirtbag move by Jones. Signs a new deal then walks away days later. The Riders deserve it as they did the same to the Eskimos.

    Great, you just gave Skunk food for thought.

    Upcoming Movies

    If a new ST movie is made then all the characters will be recast. So, there'll be another Checkov. Another Spock. Another Kirk. Hopefully we'll finally be done with the alternate Kelvin Universe.

    If the CFL brought in replacement players as free agents how many of you would attend a free agent camp? If this was the 70's or early 80's I'd be in BIG TIME! As of now I'm reduced to this.... But it's so much fun to be crotchety.

    When no one wants to crow about & disclose $$$ amounts I think it's peanuts.

    I have no problems going after different revenue streams but maybe Ambrosie should take care of business here first. Like a new CBA first & foremost & the drain of free agents being signed by NFL teams which hurts continuity & name recognition with casual fans. At least get the CBA done & I won't be as concerned. I think his priorities are all screwed up.

    So, one or 2 local German players are going to arouse interest? Seems to me the CFL has to do that itself by getting games televised in Europe & educating fans about the wide open Canadian 3 down game. Then playing exhibition games over there. Sadly, the CFL barely promotes the game in Canada let alone in Mexico or Germany. Teams shut down for months in winter with hardly any news for local fans. If we can't promote in our own cities then why would the CFL promote in other countries. Call me skeptical.

    How many Mexicans or Germans know of Winnipeg?

    More like over 100,000 oil related jobs. Then there's Bill C69 in the Senate as well. That will prevent any future pipelines from being built. It's in the Senate now for study & could be seriously amended before being passed. Bottom line, the Stamps can't use the O & G industry now as a recruiting tool as in the past.

    Calgary used to have outstanding opportunities in the O & G industry before Trudeau & the Liberals killed it off. I know of more than a few players who became millionaires after they finished playing for the Stamps.
