Taking out the botched transfer to the new Stadium Bomber training camp started out with a bang (7,500 marks out for first practice last Sunday) and has now slowed to a crawl/whimper. Coach Lapolice (plop) has cut most practices short, sometimes to only 1 hour daily due to hot weather (27 to 29 degree scorching heat, in other words, winter in arizona). The other notable is Buck Pierce looking like a house on fire both physically and mentally - which I'm always circumspect when your marquee player is shooting his wad early. Also, despite plop's abbreviated practice schedule the injuries are starting to mount (all training camp injuries are shrugged off as nothing in winnipeg until the man can't go out into subsequent practices)......yesterday big Andre Douglas, one of the twin import OT towers went down hard on his hip running a special teams drill and is iffy, sending Paul Swiston into 1st team duty (NOT Tyson Pencer). Other injuries - Alex Suber DB, Brady Browne (S), RB Carl Volny, LB Renee Stephan, LB Marcellus Bowman, DB Brendon Stewart. No word either on the whereabout of Curly, Moe & Larry. Days of reckoning coming quickly as Bombers have to field a team for exhibition schedule. The bigger concern is our giant holes on o-line (Labatte bolted for Regina, Obby opening a food place, Douglas injured and not very good to start with, January just a tad above average, Morley just a tad below average, nothing but giant faced rookies in backup roles), no Doug Brown, no O Willis, no Greg Carr, new OC in Gary 'The Crow' Crowton (good luck with that), etc. Hey, its so bad maybe its good!
