    Today again shows the issue with the two division system. The West continues to get better and better.

    Interesting to see who heads to Edmonton now. That team was held together by Reilly for a while this year, whoever heads there will be in a difficult spot.

    Those defensive restrictions are ridiculous.

    Bomber News: 2019 Off Season

    The Bombers just kind of keep humming along and retaining several contributors.

    Around the League: 2019 Off Season

    While Jones is legally allowed to leave the Riders for an NFL opening, I will clearly argue that this was not very fair to the team and organization. But that is what happens when you hire a weasel. If only he had a history of only looking out for himself... So yes, I think Chris Jones left the Riders in a terrible spot. Its not the Bombers' problem that he bailed so late.

    If LaPo wanted to be a head coach so badly, he could have pounced on several of the previous opportunities he has had. This isn't just about becoming a head coach. Its clear he is/was more interested in the Rider job because its still close to family. I'd feel bad about this if it was December. For those looking to blame Ottawa, Winnipeg or whoever else, the blame pretty clearly still lies with Chris Jones.

    I hope this doesn't turn out to be a big story. I can understand why LaPo would be upset and I'm sure Elizondo felt similar as well. But still, everyone including LaPo needs to also understand the situation. If Jones leaving this late in the offseason was such a big blow to the Riders, why would any other team WILLINGLY bring that on themselves too?

    I would assume the Bombers - and pretty much all the other teams - would not let the Riders take an assistant at this point. If they do want LaPolice, I feel more likely they'll have to wait at least until next offseason. Said it before and I'll say it again on Richie Hall - if you are rooting for the Bombers to lose him, you are working off a 2017 viewpoint and haven't updated it from last season. With Bighill back I am really, really excited to see that defense again.

    Brutal for the Riders to lose their HC this late in the off-season. Chris Jones continues to be all about Chris Jones.

    Absolutely fantastic signing. Its been a few years so we may not always think back on it, but Winnipeg has become a strong organization and place to play. Another big signing that praises the work Osh has done here.

    I scoffed at the idea initially but I don't blame Ambrosie for looking outside the box here for potential revenue streams.

    I think any major news, whether it's the Bombers or another team, should get it's own thread. These big threads work against active discussion.

    Both can be true, though I don't think Nichols is really relevant to this. Ottawa is pumped up as a good team only because of how they stack up against the East.

    Ottawa sucks, guys. Get rid of divisions. I don't want to watch a crappy team play in the final just because of their geographical location.

    This Regime

    It hasn't been discussed because quite honestly it shouldn't even be a debate. I would argue Mike O'Shea has been the best Bomber head coach since Dave Ritchie. Berry and LaPo each went to a Grey Cup but couldn't sustain success. Osh has missed out on a Grey Cup appearance - and that stung like crazy this year - but has coached a consistent winner. He's created a winning culture. He's created a team atmosphere where people want to come here and stay here. But let's not leave it at just a Bomber perspective. How many other coaches are better than O'Shea right now? I would argue there are maybe only two, and both are coaching this Sunday. In the West you've got Dickinson, Maas, Jones, and an empty BC spot. Dickinson is really the only one where I think you can put him above Osh. I'd take O'Shea over any of them. In the East you've got Campbell, Jones, Sherman and an empty Toronto spot. Campbell's team has had more success with Grey Cups, so I think putting him above Osh is fair. But honestly, I'd take O'Shea over all of them. The East/West divide is easily the biggest competitive advantage for Campbell. Truly, if this league was just one big division I think the Bombers would've been in a Cup by now.
