  1. Many of these players have been mentioned, but many of the Alouettes during the Calvillo days. Will never forgive Nate Davis for the mock urinating on Khari.

  5. Just a reminder to periodically check the location services on your phone and which apps you’ve agreed to track you. There is no reason to give this level of data about yourself to a company you are paying to be a customer of. https://business.financialpost.com/technology/tim-hortons-app-tracking-customers-intimate-data
  6. Apparently he has been on our neg list since 2016.
  7. For anyone who doesn't think racism is in Canada, and it isn't contained only to indigenous people, here is an article that may hit closer to home. https://www.cbc.ca/sports/football/cfl/cfl-khari-jones-death-threats-winnipeg-1.5595506 I don't know what kind of person you have to be that you would go out of your way to send death threats to two people, who you likely don't even know and really have no impact of effect on your life, but just because the colour of their skin differ..... I also have black friends here in the city who have been racially profiled by the police. Will not go into all of the details, but he was in a financial position to fight it, and force the issue to go to court, and after being overtly followed by police while this whole thing was happening (which he assumed was supposed to be some form of intimidation), constant delays in the system and being told by prosecutors and even his own lawyer to just give it up it isn't worth it, paying tens of thousands of dollars in legals fees, and while he ultimately won the court case, the cop ended up retiring before the court date and in the end, there was no real impact to the cop. But he fought it and paid the money to prove a point ... and won. There is no doubt that we hear lots of stories of black football players that come up to Winnipeg, and do love it here, embrace it, and find how they are treated here better then back home, and that is great, we all love hearing those stories. But that is not an excuse to say we are all good here, that racism doesn't exist, or it isn't as bad. It is a very ugly fact that if history is a predictor of the future, racism will always exist, and everyone needs to do their part so it doesn't grow and flare up into something even uglier.
  8. Why do they do these things to make me handover more money......

  10. Crazy what is going on in Minnesota right now. The States is such a huge mess right now. Checkout this CNN article and video. A reporter is arrested live during a broadcast. https://www.cnn.com/us/live-news/george-floyd-protest-updates-05-28-20/h_4ed08403663fa4ed3518221d0f2a1552
  11. If by innovation you mean stealing shamelessly from Canadian companies.... http://natoassociation.ca/why-canada-should-be-wary-of-huawei-lessons-from-nortel/ Regardless of what may or may not be in Cisco servers and US companies, with what China has shown in recent relations with Canada, I would be very very weary of getting into bed with Huawei at this point. Also, the EU has recommended "limiting" Huawei 5G and still considers them "high-risk". Time will tell what the outcome of using this technology will mean for these countries. Given our lack of military and geographic location, we are pretty much in bed with the US good or bad. China has proven not to be a friend.

  15. I like to think that our $600k was in part used to pay Khari's salary. Then I don't mind as much.
  16. Model X is way too expensive. Model Y is their smaller crossover SUV equivalent and built on the Model 3 platform. Still starts at $75k but better than $120k of the Model X. They are an intriguing car to buy, but still too expensive for most. I know the batteries aren't necessarily equivalent, but seeing how my phone battery degrades over time makes me leery of considering used.

  20. That wasn't the first broadcast where they've done that sort of thing. Has become very common in the last couple of years. Someone there thinks it is a good idea and people like it. Maybe they think it caters to and draws in the casual fan. Either way, I have no confidence that they've learned their lesson.
