What a pitiful embarrassment this pitiful defense was tonight! After years of putting up with Noel Thorpe's "bend, bend, bend some more and then bend over..." defense, now we get Stubler's "bend, bend, bend then shatter" defense! What's an Alouettes' fan to do?!  ::)

Tonight, Streveler a 23 year old QB in his second CFL start, made Stubler his b*tch! He looked like Doug Flutie out there!

Stubler's defense couldn't stop the deep pass, couldn't stop the short passing game, couldn't stop the run, couldn't stop the QB from running for long gains. Stubler's defense couldn't defend itself out of a wet paper bag!

This is not 2004. This bend but don't break defense crap doesn't work like it used to. It especially doesn't work when the front four cannot generate constant pressure. What a joke!

Fire Rich Stubler!

Problem is who do we replace him with?  Can't start installing a whole new defensive scheme during the season . . .

At this point, a tackling dummy could probably run a better defense...

Timid Tim Burke & Last Call Dan Macocia are still available last time I checked. Dickenson's brother, currently a Chris Jones acolyte may be ready.

Peering into the future, the Als may be forced to stick things out this year - paying fixed costs and taking massive bumps to the fan train.

Then clear the hobos from the train.

And bring in Barker, Austin, perhaps installing Plop (Paul Lapolice) as head coach. Still a problem at QB though!

If you were Paul Lapolice, would you quit your job to go work for Kavis Reed ? Seriously ? Do you not remember the scene in the booth at the GC when Kavis Reed was called for sending 13 men on the field ? Lapolice would never work for Kavis Reed.

The CFL is an old boys club. Kavis Reed and Andrew Wetenhall are not part of the club. This team needs new owners and a new President could be Larry Smith could be a Pierre Vercheval, someone respected in the CFL and then start from scratch.

Personally, I think it is too late, they've already burned through more than half their fanbase and it will take five years of good governance to bring this team back from the brink, I don't think the fanbase has another five years of masochism left in them. Next week this club will own the longest losing streak in the history of this old league...

Andrew saying he wants to connect with the city is comical. Where were you the last five years? The nimrods hired Ray Lalonde who could have really made them a big brand in Montreal and they canned him for buying a new phone system to replace an old Nortel Norstar phone system and now... now, they have this silver spoon fed millennial who woudn't be able to connect with fans if he wanted to running their team. Ask Lestaf...

The Wetenhall needed to sell ten years ago, they struck Gold with Trestman (absolute luck) which gave them another run, again could have sold high. Now they will own a bankruptcy or a fire sale and it is absolutely on them, not the fans.

I disagree. Real fans support their team, win or lose. The problem with withdrawing support because management seems incapable of putting a "quality" product on the field is that it's a zero sum game. When one team wins, another loses. That's the nature of sport. Therefore simply thinking in terms of putting a quality product on the field just results in exporting the fan apathy product to another city.

Somehow, the CFL must think of a way to better connect with present day Canadians. But I'm not the one to ask for answers in this regard. My connection to the CFL has never faded these past sixty years. I therefore can't understand the apathy toward the CFL in some markets.

That is the beauty of sports. Everyone has the choice of how (or if) they choose to support a franchise. 

You can choose to support the sport franchise of your choice in several different ways. Some in monetary fashions other ways not. Purchase tickets, purchase merchandise, purchase television packages or simply jump on these sites.

…..You know I like winning....we've been in a Cup drought so long that anything resembling a light at the end of the tunnel is exciting to me....BUT I hate seeing another club...who were great not that long ago..take a drubbing like that...To say the Als. need a lot of work is putting it mildly...We've been there and it took a lot of time to get off of the carpet...It'll come with the right personnel in place and that's just it....Finding those people is the trick...Hope the Mont. fans can stick it out through these trying days till it happens... bonne chance guys...and I do mean that sincerely

You have a lot of nerve coming into OUR forum, and telling us we cannot criticize our team. Stick to your fantasy crap and the main forum.

Right, so you should be held hostage.... Kind of like accepting low lives in your country because they have their kids in tow.

Every time a team skrews over a fan favorite, they tell the fans it is a business. But all of a sudden fans are not supposed to treat you as a business? Hmmm...

Interestingly enough that President Ray Lalonde I was talking about says the only power fans have over a runaway organization is their wallet... The only thing team owners will listen to is fans who pull their money... That's the way it is. By mid-season paying attendance will be below 10k I am certain of it. And they will struggle to sell 5000 season tickets for next season.

Yep. Losing Lapolice would be a great add to the Als org. Plop is an excellent head coach, great offensive mind - only negative is he's a bit terrified of his players. Thus he's never really hard on guys he should be hard on.

But Plop going from Wpg. to Montreal would definitely strengthen the Als - but it WOULD WEAKEN THE BOMBERS MORE!

Hmmmm. Speaking of fantasy, where pray tell did I say you couldn't criticize your own team? Granted I did imply that you should support any team you call your own, but that's a very different statement.

And I didn't realize that nerve was required to post on this forum. A thick skin perhaps given the tender sensibilities of certain specific posters, but not nerve.

Quote from: Johnny Ticat slayer
Actually, Baltic Fox reminds Johnny of "Access media", and all of the other aliases the same guy had. He has the same tendency to claim he has CFL knowledge and that he is great, etc. Also, Baltic fox showed up right after the last "Access media" sock puppet was banned.

Did this Access Media fellow also have a habit of referring to himself in third person and telling other posters what and where they could post? Was that why he was banned?

???
There's more than a handful of 3rd person posters. The Winnipeg sites have a guy named 'The Dude' who refers to himself only in 3rd person. Now Baltic Fox appears on the CFL.ca scene.

Johnny Ticat also does the odd 3rd person referral but Johnny knows his football and is one of the best posters across our native land. I mean that sincerely. Papazoola from Winnipeg is another guy you should be welcoming.
