    Expected that Wad Miller will introduce Kyle Walters as his puppet GM.

    Make no mistake - Miller will be calling the shots, Walters will be doing the work.

    I expect to hear both Miller and Walters screaming out a basket full of old cliches: ie. Bringing Back Bomber Football, Bigger/Faster/Stronger, Emphasis on Canadian Talent, Fixing the Quarterback situation, blah blah blah.

    Even football idiots like Buchko, Joke Mack, Burke, Bauer, Kelly provided a litany of the same tissue of excuses.

    The time for talk is over - just do the work, find the coaches and players who might coalesce into something we can be proud of.

    But the talk is necessary cuz they have to sell tickets and making idiotic promises is a proven way to sink their hook into the mouths of feeble-minded lambs, waiting for their instructions to enter the abyss.

    A real Rod-Buster courtesy of Rider pbp man Rod Petersen appearing on TSN radio in WPg this a.m. Wadzilla Miller wants Khari Jones (friend and biz partner) for head coach while GM to be Kyle Walters prefers Mike O'Shea.

    When asked for his opinion Joe Mack said the best bet for bomber head coach is the barrista gal at his neighborhood starbucks.

    Neither one has any HC experience. Could be another long year in the peg. However I think Khari has a better shot at pulling a Chamblin 2.0

    Interesting crew forming there in Winnipeg and it's looking like all rats off the boat in Toronto as that ship sinks. Because this is a Bomber thread I'll say that they have put together 3 good individuals to run the General Manager chair. If they can all get on the same page then they'll be solid.

    If it was an Argo thread I'd say that losing Goveia weakens their connection to Canadian content and if they also lose Mike O'Shea along with Chris Jones off the sidelines then maybe the shake up is imminent there in the Big Smoke and they do protect Collaros instead of Ray.

    Now all the Peg has to do is find a head coach who will put up with a 3-headed GM...

    I suspect if Colonel Barker puts Ray up for auction he'll have major bidding from two markets. Winnipeg is kinda desperate, even if Ricky is immobile as all git out while Montreal will go nuts if Ray is available. They really need a proven QB to sell tickets and stop the financial bleeding thats imminent if they drop well below .500 again.

    Even if Wpg doesn't get Ray they have the lemming factor and they'll sell 21 or 22,000 seas tkts regardless. In addition our provincial NDP govt. will underwrite all bomber losses as they can't afford to let the team go down in flames (bankruptcy)

    Well if a 3 headed GM can supply 3 times the players maybe it doesn't matter who the coach is...nah forget it the gong show must go on!

    What a week. A team that can't/won't pay off The builder of The Monument has money to buy out the last coach and hire, not one but THREE new Head Officers.
    You know the Province is on the hook for the loot because a Bank would have the Receiver Manager in place if their receivable pulled this one.
    Bronks, my calculator froze up trying to calculate the loot spent on Coaches and Managers, managers, managers.........

    The Builder has been told to collect his debt elsewhere (ie. the provincial NDP government). The Bombers meanwhile are pocketing all the game revenues, lions share of concessions & parking, bulk of season ticket and gameday sales and significant promotional monies. They still had a multi million surplus before conning Selingerkin into under-writing the con. However, when the well runs dry (and it will) Wadzilla and his fellow partners in grime will come a runnin' to Selinger for mo money. And no one, not even the esteemed Jayman will be allowed to know what the debt is, the cumulative debt, the forgiven debt or the cash flow deficit. Thats the way we done business and it ain't gonna change cuz chumpstains like Jayman, Nasty Nate, Bronko and a couple others Les Miserables are asking questions.

    Stay tuned for a major announcement by bomber brass at 12:30 PM today. I assume it's local pegger time.

    Cortez as HC?

    Fairmont winnipeg hotel. Wellington ballroom. Doors open at 11:45. Entry is free.

    40% off bomber merch at the holiday store in the hydro building.

    Being a Blue agent rules.

    Argos have lost two coordinators already this off season. Things will be interesting in Hogtown soon too.

    Yea we will miss O'Shea... I always liked his out of the box decisions... .. But I think he deserves to get a HC position and Milanovich wasn't moving out soon.
    But we did help the Bombers by signing up Burke .... One less head coach salary.:)

    Nice to see another Canadian coach .... With the Canadian GM .... Both have connections in the
    Guelph region. Good Ontario guys taking over in the peg .... They're in the
    West now!

    Get this big old man a chair and he'll be alright. However, its pretty obvious Rich Stubler is in quite some distress, quite often.
