Did I beat Bronko?
DC Tim Burke takes over the position - isn't this his second promotion from a firing?
Well, we all knew this was going to happen. The entire Bomber organization should be ashamed. From Garth Butchko proclaiming that the Bombers will never play another game at Canad Inns Stadium last winter... Of course they opened the season with 4 straight difficult road games to GM Joe Mack not providing the talent for the guy to win... How come Joe Mack gets off so easy?? He should have been sent packing as well.
Blowing the stadium timeline by an entire year was embarrassing.
Not that LaPolice had much to do with that, but he just wasn't a good coach. He look confused out there most times.
Stupid firing given the circumstances this year. They didn't bring in any talent in the offseason to help him and played hard for him despite having the least talented team in the league and having to play 3 different starting QB's. Should have let him have the rest of the year as I fail to see what a coaching change is going to accomplish. They played the Lions harder than the Stamps, Riders, and Argo's. What a mess that organization is.
I think I speak for both bronko and I when I say: Nooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo!
one final plopastrophe.
Actually guys, I was working when I heard the news at about 2pm Wpg time.
It was like a kick in the stomach.
You see, I may have been Paul's biggest critic but sometimes you have to separate the criticism from the love. This was a fine man who was not fully prepared for all the nuances of being a pro football head coach. He was also given some bad groceries by his GM, in terms of some of the unprofessional vermin Mack drafted.
Paul LaPolice might have been a below average head coach but his players loved him (thats a problem in many respects)
And so might I add did one of his most severe critics.
Today, at approx. 2pm I felt like I was fired.
And a little bit of history gets washed out to sea.
Good luck Paul. You're a quality person and a really good assistant coach.
Personally, I'd like to see Paul stay in WPg and take over the awful program that the U of M Bisons have degenerated to.
And for Deuvl - from the famous film Casablanca - "We'll Always Have Plop~!"
Here's the Wpg Free Press link for the press conference with Drowsy Joe Mack and Tim Burke.

Anybody have twitter & see the debate Rids & I had over the firing? No hard feelings, Ridsy??? Always good to have a strong opinion...
The Bombers organization is shameful... Lots of excuses to go around from Butchko, Bell & Mack.
Brushcut Bell was smart to sit out the cross-fire this afternoon as Buchko and Drowsy Joe were trottted out to the assembled (and mostly shocked) local media.
Buchko and Mack have contracts even longer and higher valued than Mr Lapolice. They're locked in for a couple idiotic winters, to be sure.
Buchko is a piece of CFL vermin. Mack is just an old rounder who was plucked from the unemployement rolls cuz the Bombers had some success with him as a scout back in the mid-80s
Bombers also have some other cancers in their administration
Besides the obvious Buchko - Asst. GM Loss Hodgkinson, VP PR Champagne Jerry Maslowsky, and the guy who sells the merchandise and bans people from bomber forums Jeff 'Ban Him' Banyon.
Very dysfunctional organization. Good luck paying off that 150 million dollar debt you morons.
That means yer nickname generator's going to have to work overtime now on the Burkester after you've already spent so much time and effort to put out all that nickname inventory on the Plopster...:s
I am surprised Ross Hodgkinson has survived the various palace coups that have taken place with the Bombers. He's either really good or a really good Yes man.
Troy Westwood called him a good organ-grinder if ya know what I mean.....
Give me some space there Terry. I'm kinda in mourning right now. In all the places and all the cities where sports shines this character was my all-time favourite. Feels like I've lost a family member.
the greatest day in plop ball history
It only seemed like 9 months ago.
he's sure been quiet. you didn't ban him did ya?
Nah, besides he could ban me... He & I agreed to disagree. You guys don't have twitter? You missed the Battle Of The Titans... Too bad. Hell, I got 5 new followers out of the deal!!
When he was following Bauer around in Wpg., suckin' hind t, I called him Count Poop.....
