If vermin like Eric Tilman can return willy-nilly to the CFL what bodes for Lord Lyle Bauer, ex of Calgary and Winnipeg? Lyle is not even 55 yet, he's had decades of experience as a CFL players, Asst. GM, GM, President, Assistant President, etc. Yes, his record is littered with on-field failures and a total inability to hire the right coaches, assistants, etc. but he's been a consistent ticket and promotional salesman. This cannot be denied. In winnipeg he was boosted by some internet fawns & shills who know squat about football - but a lot about anger! I wonder if Winnipeg tanks whether Lyle might re-apply as Bomber CEO/GM, replacing the entrails of the Buchko/Mack era. Or if Ottawa needs a rabid tough-talking, salesman to fill their new fishbowl? Perhaps Lyle has taken enough money from his previous employers to be set for life and sell memorabilia on ebay? He's probably tired of commentators like me illustrating his profound on-field power failures and extreme lack of football knowledge. THus, he might just stay out of the limelight until someone comes a beggin' with a high salary and huge signing bonus. Thats the way Lyle does business. His job loss in Calgary was either a well orchestrated "firing" or the guy lost total confidence in himself and his ability to market football. I find the latter hard to believe. But if guys like Tilman can re-surface, what about Bauer? I do understand that one guy is a ticket salesman and the other is a guy who finds decent players and trades superstars. Do understand that. And Lyle doesn't have a criminal spot on his record like ET.
