    After their Labour Day loss to the Riders, Bombers HC Mike O'Shea was caught on camera berating and nearly contacting various game officials.
    Reason - he was unhappy with Riders taking on and bullying his long-snapper Chad Rempel. Rempel is a notorious CFL lightweight snapper, around 6'1" and 210 lbs. Snappers are supposed to be protected by a CFL non-contact rule.
    Listen, the officials blew the call pure and simple. CFL officials are not the brightest candy in the Halloween Bowl - sometimes they are totally grotesque. Yesterday, that's one of those days.
    Thankfully, O'Shea waited until the game was over until he went berserk on the officials. If he's made at the blind guys who couldn't see inside the bomber o-line, he should be totally infuriated by his hobo defense which allowed the Riders to cut thru his so-called good defense like scissors cutting paper.

    O'Shea would have gone after the officials win or lose, that's a given. His mind was distracted the entire game by a couple early occurrences. Pro coaches don't allow things to distract as much as this guy does.

    He was a known dirty player during his days with the Argos & Ticats. If he really wanted to get a bit of reaction he'd simply assign a disposable American hobo next game to pursue knee contact with Rider superstar QB Chico Fajardo. Someone like Alex McCallister, a guy who won't be around much longer. Give him $2500 bounty on Fajardo and allow for a couple 15 yd late hits to boot.

    Riders without Fajardo won't be as threatening to the Bombers down the stretch and into the playoffs.

    But O'Shea won't do anything such. He's one of the biggest cowards in CFL history. Cheap-shot bullies usually are. He'll continue to lament the loss of Rempel (I would too) and probably take a small fine from the CFL office ($1000 or less). But O'Shea would never risk burning Fajardo via an instructed lit. That might incur a multi-game suspension, perhaps more - - - - and O'Shea would never take that type of hit to his $350,000+ salary vs. the loss of a semi-significant ageing canuck long-snapper.

    Don't have to worry about Coach Bronks coaching the bombers and putting out a little 'ol hit on Mr. Fajardo.
    O'Shea is now Marquis of Queensbury rules. Surprised he even tore after the officials after his long-snap boy was ruffianed by a rider monster DT.

    Sometimes you have to fight fire with fire. O'Shea ain't gonna put the fire out with his nauseating & droning voice, that's for darn sure!
