    Around the League: 2019 Off Season

    Not really sure although I vaguely recall hearing something along those lines.

    I never thought I'd live to see the day:
  3. Fritz Hanson as punt returner. His punt returns reputedly won us the 1935 Grey Cup. Over 300 yards in punt returns (including one for the game winning touchdown) with no blocking.

    Riley Marra, the kid who does the videos for the Bombers, does a great job on these things:

    Bomber News: 2019 Off Season

    Tomorrow will mark the third anniversary of Harris's signing with the Bombers. I recall that when we signed him there were people on Riderfans saying that he's going to be 30 soon and running backs usually fall off a cliff once they hit 30.

    First time I've ever heard of these people but they're affiliated with some American outfit and provide testing data on players. They're going to be at the U of W tomorrow (Fri): https://canadafootballchat.com/cfc100-combines-registration/ Anybody know anything about this?

    Wolitarsky owned him in last year's WSF.
  11. Bud Grant became head coach of the Bombers in 1957 (not 1958). He took us to the Grey Cup in his rookie year but we lost. I still remember asking "Mommy, why did Gerry James fumble again?", to which I was told "He's playing with a broken bone in his hand. It's not his fault dear." As GM I'm going to go with Joe Ryan. Not only was he with the Winnipeg Rugby Football Club from the beginning but, as Vince Leah put it: A History of the Blue Bombers p8 and p10.

    I wonder if there's anything in his contract with the Bombers that would prevent him from doing this? Maybe the Bombers could fine him. What size fine would be appropriate? 😉

    Better and better. Last year's West Division’s most outstanding rookie :

    The irony in this is delicious: After today's Bighill signing, one Rider fan posted that all the Bombers need now is to get a new GM, HC and QB.

    Bomber News: 2019 Off Season

    I have a vague recollection of reading somewhere that BLM's wife has a high paying job in Calgary working in the Provincial health service. Which reminds me of the George Gratzer case. Back in the late 60's I used to eat lunch with, among others, a couple of guys who were studying mathematics at the U of M. I remember them telling us about Professor Gratzer, who was on the maths staff, and saying that this man is a world class mathematician and there's no way that he should be here. He should be at Harvard or Standford, someplace like that. The thing is that both Gratzer and his wife were Hungarian, and his wife qualified as a dentist in Hungary. She wanted to work as a dentist but the American dentist's union wouldn't recognize her qualifications. Someone from the U of M's math dept was at a conference and found out about this. So he phoned up the Dentistry Dept at the U of M and said that we'd love to make him an offer but can you sort out his wife's qualification issues. Problem solved. Gratzer came to Winnipeg and has been here ever since. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/George_Grätzer It's good to see the Bombers continuing this tradition.
