    As predicted earlier this month (and Grey Cup week) by yours truly it appears the bombers are poised to cross off Duane Forde from the list of candidates for their vacant Assistant GM job. The Gooner, Garry Lawless takes a flying atomic bomb drop from the top rope in the following article, humiliating to Garth Buchko & his entire bored of directors.

    Gosh, you couldn't have written this article any better. The bronko virus has finally begun its much needed infection.

    Sounds like Kyle Walters will take the Assistant GM spot while Casey Creehan ends up as the DC.

    I was a little surprised that Hamilton had said earlier that Creehan was expected back in Hamilton next year. Just didn't make sense.

    Just typical CFL front office "Brave Talk" - you certainly didn't believe it, did you Rids?

    My football thinking didn't want to believe it but it's the CFL. Anything can happen...no lead is safe even in the front office.

    I read this article and it suddenly dawned on me!!
    I have never seen Bronko and Lawless together......
    Bronks, calling yourself "Gooner", you've had us all fooled for so long.
    Now if only OB Mikey can find some kryptonite!

    I can only imagine the heat Lawless is going to take for that story. It seems everyone wants changes except the Bombers & some members on OB.com. They'll stick with Mack until the ship sinks to the depths of ineptitude. I look upon this as somewhat good news. Mack will no doubt hang himself next season & he'll be out. At the same time, it's no guarantee that Forde would make a good GM as it takes more than knowledge of Canadian players draft day to manage a team. I've said this tens of times on OB.com & I'll say it again here now. With Joe Mack, nothing is going to change. Maybe not hiring a guy like Forde now will be a good thing as it would open up the doors to other qualified people when he is let go. Trying to put as much positive spin as I can on this. BTW, I'd have loved Forde to have been hired.
