    Insane. What a bizarre CFL-esque move.

    Hawkins was signed for 3 years. Wouldn't be surprised to see Wetty sell the team next.

    Maybe there was a 6 week expiration date on that contract...

    Now Popp and AC are going to get more heat from fans and the media if the team doesn't turn it around. Next thursday's game will definitely be a doozy.

    Don't tell me they had Spanky Hawkins on probation???

    Prolly wanted to bring Plop in to form the Popp 'n Plop connection but Plop has it good these days - TRIPLE DIPPIN'
    1. Still getting paid after Wpg tied the can to him....
    2. Gig with TSN has blossomed nicely - Plop is the ultimate team-player, well-informed.
    3. Started a small career in Wpg as a public speaker (helped to overcome his stuttttterrrrring)

    Goes to Mtl for $300k kinda nixes his other gigs

    Plop and his wifey, Tina Fay will reassess after Bomber cheques stop arriving. He'll pit up whatever offer he gets from TSN vs. head coaching offers from Montreal, Edmonton, Otttawa. Possible GM job in Winnipeg after resident skater JoJo Starbuk (Mack) is released.

    Didn't The PQ institute a "60 day back out clause" on credit card purchases? i bet that's Popp's out, and he'd still get the air miles to cover the trainer going to BC.

    Courtesy of John and Paul..
    JoJo Mack Get Back, go home.

    "Jojo was a man who thought he was a loner
    But he knew it couldn't last.
    Jojo left his home in Tucson, Arizona
    For some Manitoba grass.
    Get back, get back.
    Get back to where you once belonged
    Get back, get back.
    Get back to where you once belonged.
    Get back Jojo, go home"

    The Bombers BoD are in tough. The press is saying be decisive, make a move, be ruthless like Montreal.The BoD are looking at each other over their 9 oz. glasses of fine merlot and saying, "Be decisive? We'd have three head coaches and two GM's on the payroll if we did that, and then for sure we'd have to downgrade the vino at our monthly's. No can do."

    Bombers GM decision is way more about the balance on the debit card than the product on the field. Besides, Paul McCartney is coming. They'll check concession sales (beer, beer, more beer) before they can anyone. Rumor has it they've already given MLCC inspections the wrong date and time in hopes of over selling enough to buy out Joe Joe.

    Still wondering how a Montreal coach being fired turns into a Bomber thread...

    Maybe he just can't coach outside of Idaho.

    Whenever Bronko makes a post, it becomes a Bomber thread...;)

    So how long does everyone think Austin has left in the Hammer?

    So to those that think it was too early to fire Hawkins here's something...

    That's an OC fired on the first day of fall practice. Good luck Warriors.

    It's elementary, Rids.

    From his track record on the season it was just obvious he wasn't a 'good fit'...;)

    Als seem happy to keep Miller and Mike seems happy to stay with the als. Looks like Dan was the real problem.

    I believe it was a bit of an ego trip for Popp. He wanted to show that he could take a guy like Hawkins and make him into something. Whether Dan shot himself in the foot at the lost opportunity or the owner threw him under the bus too early will be discussed at length after the als' season is done and not likely as cup winners in regina.

    winnipeg and montreal just have a nice fit together rids, let it be.
