  1. You're forgetting Gaitor was actually good last year... then he got hurt... Maston took over and was much better... proves you CAN lose your job because of injury... Fenner and Hecht... not as much... Let's just say Jones and Alexander made a huge difference...
  2. "He may be just a little short"... Player needed 15 yards and clearly gained 8...
  3. to clarify... the waving hand represents "hi"... so the message is actually "Oh hi there beautiful"... which is grammatically correct ...
  4. Realistically.... Johnson is just the "face of the franchise"... his financial commitment is probably limited... if the headline says "redbird capital buys the XFL" no one cares...
  5. Sure, why not.... Prediction one: playing in the bubble, this thing will go through til the end without a major hitch On to the hockey predictions: East: Tampa (1), Boston (2), Washington (3), Philly(4) Pitt 3 - Mtl 0 Car 3 - NYR 2 NYI 3 - Fla 1 CBJ 3 - Tor 2 (just because ) West: Colorado (1), St Louis (2), Vegas (3), Dallas (4) Edm 3 - Chi 1 Nash 3 - Ari 2 Van 3 - Minn 1 Wpg 3 - Cgy 1
  6. too many people think it's still the 1970s.... size is important but speed and puck movement trumps size every time... I'd take a small, good skating puck mover over a big bruiser any day... although, I'd rather have a guy that's both (Byfuglien 😥)
  7. I was just thinking this... can you imagine how excruciating this off season would be if we had not won the cup... I don't even want to think about it...
  8. I saw Adam Bighill and his family at Assiniboine park last weekend... I think he's in Wpg full time with that finance job he has in the off season...
  9. disagree with the first bolded... if wearing a mask in a sparsely crowded stadium can get me watching some live Bombers football... I'm all in! completely agree with the second bolded... maybe in my younger days with no kids or other responsibilities I'd watch two random teams play... but certainly not right now.
  10. this isn't terribly surprising.... if for some reason the Bombers ever had to change their name... I know I'd try to snap up a bunch of gear with "Blue Bombers" written on it...
  11. I hate using slavery as an example because it's such a terrible black mark in our history... but sometimes it take an extreme example to explain the point... When slavery was abolished they were not pretending it didn't happen and they did 'fix' the problem (well, eventually)... exactly like you said we should not be doing today... so based on your argument as you've clearly outline above, they should not have viewed slavery "with a modern filter" and continued to allow it...
  12. Here's the problem with a statement like this... what it implies (and I know you're not trying to say this) is that slavery was ok because it was deemed acceptable at the time... some things certainly need a modern filter... BTW... the rest of this post had some good stuff but also stuff I disagree with so I decided to go too deep into it...
  13. From some of the stories you tell from the 70s and 80s your memory is impressive... but where your "chasing the money" argument falls short is that if he was truly an elite, irreplaceable QB... his current team would pony up the money to keep him... Nobody said Damon Allen was a bad QB or a bum... most have simply argued he was a very good QB who gained impressive stats by playing forever but was almost always lesser than other QBs in the league when he played... simple as that...
  14. Don't worry... I would say if there's one thing we've learned about Wade Miller since he took over the team... he absolutely cares about what the fans want
  15. I get the second half of your post is a very unfunny joke... but are you serious about the Red Wolves part?... or was that just the set up to the bad joke?
