    Lots of off-season moves in coaching and management ranks. However, still a few lingerers still standing in the Unemployment line, waiting for their cue.

    1. Paul LaPolice - holding onto that guaranteed bomber contract like a 79 year old woman holding her urban bus transfer. Hasn't been a rush for Porky Plop's services as he's seen as a remarkably un-creative force.

    2. Dan Macocia - has an agreeement in CIS, still craves a return to the bigs. Montreal is his final shot.

    3. Mr. Chips (Garber) - fired in Winnipeg. Thats not good for the resume. Wpg is a bottom feeder, where do you go from there.

    4. The Dark Lord, Lyle Bauer - relieved of his presidency in Calgary under suspicious circumstances. A former management powerhouse when he headed up a fiefdom in Winnipeg. Known for his aggressive ***t kicking style the knock on Lyle is he knows better than everyone else, doesn't absorb feedback well and has anger management issues.

    5. Bob O'Bilovich, = near 50 year CFL career (WOW) but has been mediocre to slightly above average in all his endeavours (DB, place-kicker, assistant coach, coach, GM). Now, at 73 its probably the end of the road. Nice drive though.

    6. Jeff Reinbold - unemployable. A disruptive guy who says he's one thing and becomes another.

    7. Mike 'Maggot' Kelly - Sounds like a football legend. Coaches like a guy from down by the river, living in a van.

    There we have it. The "Maggotnificent" Seven....

    Did i miss anyone?

    Obie called it quits at 72. Kelly will never work in the CFL now that his protector Bauer is gone. You forgot about Sonic. So far he can't find a job.

    Sonic is virtually unemployable this year. The only team which could use his services are the Bombers, after they sack mack and the bombers won't make a play on Eric cuz they consider him to have too much stink on him. Imagine that, an organization with a ton of stink on them, refusing to consider a potential solution cuz the guy they need has significant stink on him.

    I know I've been knocking you on seeing lapolice in Montreal but seeing as they've been stripped of nearly all their coaches he might just plop up here as an assistant to whichever american Popp chooses as HC.

    I agree Montreal would never hire a uncreative like Plop as head coach. But he could be a position coach under their new american head coach.

    Dilemna for Paul and his wife Tina Fay is whether to sit out the season and collect 20,000 a month from the bombers or take $100k for a gig in Mtl, work with Calvillo and take the bombers off the hook for 40% of his guarantee. Keep yourself in the game, develop new connections and rebuild a slightly soiled reputation.

    LaPo has a young family, a wife who is clearly a big part of decisions, and the 20k/mnth is very new to a family unit that lived on KD for a long time.
    He is also seriously pissed with The Big Blue.
    He will cash every cheque.

    Don't blame him. I'm just waiting for the inevitable Mack firing.

    Yes, he does. 50 years of service deserves a Timex watch from the league office, to be sure. Actually, Bob O. Style should receive a nice parting gift from the CFL - each team should chip in $500 and the league office should buy the guy a new wardrobe!!! He's still wearing those Hawaian shirts he bought in 1964.

    In other late breakin' news, Jeff Reinbold, the human pissant was hired by the ticats to replace White Zombie, Jim Daley as ST coach. Just heard it today. Just saw Global TV in Wpg also announce it - they showed video from 1997 where Adam Rita, a notorious craggy ogre sent Reinbold flying when he fingered him after a game! Classic lol moment!!

    Obie was a pretty good coach having won the 83 GC with the Argos... I always liked the man. Did a very good job as Player Personnel Director with the Stamps. He seems like a nice guy as well. I wish him all the best in retirement.

    ob had more common sense and class than just about all the vermin the bombers have proferred up over the last half century.

    Only exceptions Cal Murphy (he wasn't that classy btw)
    Bud Grant

    Mike Riley

    Most of the other GMs, head coaches, presidents and administrators were exceptional con men, sociopaths, losers, drunks, head cases and nervous nellies.

    ie Reinbold, Bauer, Daryl Rogers, Berry, Hildahl, Buchko, Bell, Daley, Mazlowsky, Ross Hodgkinson aka Count Poop, Maggotini (Kelly), Plop, Spavital, Bud Riley, Joke Zaleski, Joke Mack.
