    Had to happen sooner vs. later. Premier Greg 'Le Grande Grotesque' Selinger, has essentially threatened the bombers to either make their loan payments to the province or risk governance of the team.

    The 120 million loan was already been written down from 4 million per year payback over 40 years to 1 million for the next four years. Mainly due to bombers having to take out a credit union 10 mill. loan to fix things that weren't done to code in the first place (I guess architects and engineers are off the hook)

    Now this. IMHO if its only 1 million to keep the govt. out of the private society's hands, then either guys like Asper or Watchorn will ante up a few hundred thou each to keep the govt.'s hands off the team/stadium. And Selinger is gasping for his own political life, after Manitoba's economy has gone south, he raised the sales tax (GST - Greg Selinger Tax) to 8% and we've got a 23 billion dollar deficit to boot.

    Selinger has less than 2 years to the next election and he's the 2nd lowest premier in terms of likeability (only Nfld's Kathy Blunderdale is worse) so chances are he won't be around to fight the next election anyways.

    I'd threaten to have Sara O. off the sidelines at IGF for all future games. That'll get their attention.

    Deuv, i understand SSSSSSSSSSSara has an even hotter sister!!

    As far as Gov Greg goes, that's hypocrisy.
    He funded these bandits a year ago, extended them a month ago, pulled his head out, and tada, he's a tough guy.

    Greg's polling is lower than a snake's bellly. He'll exit politics before Miller and his masonic accomplices have assembled a purchase plan.
