  1. His deal is $160K plus incentives so maybe he stands to make much more if he has another season like this past one. I know Walters doesn't like using bonuses due to the uncertainty but maybe this was the only way to get it done and still have room for other guys.
  2. My brother. He used to post here and on OB as Taynted Fayth. He passed away a few days ago and I'm using his old profile picture.
  3. Thank you. We were very different personality-wise but we shared a love for the Bombers. I know he'd get a kick out of me using since I used to bug him about how terrible of a drawing I thought it was.
  4. I don't know if the team will go undefeated on the field but nobody can touch them on Twitter.
  5. In 2019, Rempel was our only LS, and he was easily replaced. Benson was very reliable but if he doesn't come back, I'm not concerned that we couldn't lure someone here given the mass amount of FA's across the league.
  6. My condolences to you and your family. I can unfortunately relate... my brother passed away on Sunday (some may remember him from here & the old OB forum as Taynted_Fayth) so we're also trying to figure out how to hold a service. Not the easiest thing to do at the best of times.
  7. Gordon actually has a background in health care administration which on paper, should make her suited for the role (she was a director with WRHA). The problem is that she was terrible at that job as well (I know this first hand).
  8. Pending free agent shows up to another teams playoff game wearing their colors. Current team panics and backs up the Brinks truck. Well played, Lucky, well played.
  9. Walters was not wrong the other day when he said if everyone wants fair market value, it's going to be tough.
  10. I take his comments as more of a negotiation tactic than anything - just letting people know it's not a slam dunk. He's also made comments about his paycut was him betting on himself after a down season (for him) in 2019. After the season he just had, I'd say he won that bet... Just a matter of how much it'll payoff.
  11. His own words. “That doesn’t mean I can’t still pursue that career somewhere else, because I can,” the 33-year-old said. “Just always easier to stay where you are. I have to take a serious look at if I’m going to play four more years, what are those four years going to look like? “You just have to take a very serious look at the time you have left and make the most of it.” https://winnipegsun.com/sports/football/bombers-notes-thisll-be-harder-than-it-was-keeping-the-beatles-together-bighill-deserves-the-biggest-raise-jeffcoat-and-jefferson-would-love-to-stay-pierce-hopes-theyre-all-back
  12. And maybe back up through Chicago to sign Stove. Getting the entire starting front 4 would be great.
  13. Just flip it around so it's more acceptable. You're not agreeing with Chris Jones, he's agreeing with what this board has been saying for a long time.
  14. He was one of our final cuts at camp this year. From a TC report by Ed Tait: There are four import defensive tackles who are also jumping out in Casey Sayles, the 6-3, 289-pounder who has experience in both the XFL and AAF; Ezekiel Rose, who starred at West Virginia; Cedric Wilcots II, who was spotted by Bombers scouts at the College Gridiron Showcase in 2020 after a superb career at New Mexico State, as well as Ricky Walker, who has been in camp with both Dallas and Cleveland.
  15. Entire tournament scrapped now. https://www.tsn.ca/iihf-world-junior-hockey-championship-edmonton-red-deer-cancellation-1.1739952
  16. So Stefanson can say she was present and did something. That's the only reason for that nothingburger of a press conference.
  17. I wouldn't be so sure. He recently said that he can pursue his other career anywhere, it's just easier to stay.
  18. Can we get this thread pinned to the top of the board? Just reading the title makes me smile. 😂
  19. Enjoy the holidays guys! Hopefully everyone gets some new Grey Cup gear under the tree this year!
  20. We'll lose him eventually, it's the price of success and he's earned it but happy to have him back in the meantime.
  21. As a starter? That's his only option and that's if Burke doesn't land either Evans or Masoli. If he's willing to accept back-up money, he could end up with a few different teams.
  22. They can pay a 3rd string QB on PR, the same as an active roster QB. There's a minimum salary for the PR but nothing stopping a team from paying more than that. It all counts against cap either way.
