Theeee most important Bomber news goes un-reported. The old site has been leased (again).
Tax revenue projections now up dramatically. Loot to soon flow to the new digs.
IGF loan may even be paid down (a wee bit) next year.
WAD will be able to come out, see his shadow, and assure The Lemmings (had to use it, Lyle) that its all just as planned.
The file marked "proposals to creditors" can then go back into WAD's trunk.
MBB will re-confirm the genius that runs the place.

Don't know where I heard it but "sunny days, my friends, sunny days".......

In the extreme chance I haven't made all bomber fans sick to their stomach already - I was just reviewing the 2016 draft, cuz Onyemata from U of M is turning into an NFL monster.

In '16 bombers had 1st overall pick - WHICH THEY FOREFITTED TO PICK UP THE IMMORTAL CDN. LB/SPECIAL TEAMER GARROT WAGGONER, WHO RETIRED LAST SEASON AFTER ONLY 1 SEASON OF FOOTBALL.

Available at #1 - Charles Vaillancout OL, Taylor Lauzon (OL) and of course a guy who the bombers wouldn't give a sniff to, Alex Singleton who's turned into an all-star linebacker in Calgary. Bombers don't like white guys with extremely long hair, I suspect.

Another sickening output from your local neighbourhood bomber draft team. May as well draw player names out of a hat!!!??? NO>

CFL draft has been full of hit and miss for years. 

Going back and reading the names of guys who did not play makes me wonder about the philosophy of developing skills and knowledge. Seems guys are drafted and cut after the first training camp. Pretty sure not many of the 2017 Bomber draft class are left with the team now. Ekakatie by default to reinforce the good decision and maybe it will be yet.

Singleton has been huge for Calgary. Maybe it was the hair. 

Would have liked to see them step up on the Herdman boys who both played full seasons for BC and Toronto. No downside when the alternative selection is released. To add that they play a position of need for the team is another baffler but maybe there is more to it.

Kyle Walters was given responsibility for the Bomber draft in 2011. Joe Mack clouded the picture for a couple of years but he has been on his own for some time without much success.

I am hopeful of a good year ahead for the team and want to support the process. Maybe I am the one who is not seeing the big picture. Can only wait and see and hope.

Wondering if the boys have actually got out and kicked tires regarding Larry Dean as a potential fit at MLB. Kind of a studly dude. Would hope they give it more than a quick drive by and decide to stand pat.

Talk on Lionbackers is Adam Bighill may be back in the CFL next year. Seems like a guy who could fit in. Might even be an O Shea type.

Liked the job Tom Miles did last year and hope to see progression and a bigger role. Maybe not the middle right off but getting some game action and making tackles is what he needs. I think of him as the guy Garrett Waggoner was going to be.

Or stand pat and work on more tricks.

.....Looking at what's available in free agency..I'd be inclined to bring in a 'find' for middle linebacker...let Rigmaiden do his thing...He might have better luck than what we have been having in recruiting talent....He found some decent players for the Leo's...hopefully he still has the touch...As for current players available in fa....it looks like there might be a few that could shake loose......JC Sherritt ...although injured most of last year, could still have game...Hoffman-Ellis or Adam Konar might be a possibility,,,,Really like this Konar kid...Someone is going to be available in Edm., looking at the big money they're currently throwing around (*see D.Walkers contract number) and the number of players they have to re-up...Deron Mayo in Cal. could/would be a nice addition...Any one of the aforementioned players, would be a huge improvement over the pretender Hurl ,who we haven't made an effort to re-sign and hopefully never will.......FA rapidy approaching...sure hope we have a solid plan

joe

Agree regarding Konar who seemed to flourish with an increased role. Ladler played well also.

Schmoes were pretty beat up at linebacker all year with the silver lining of getting Mulumba - Tshingma among others plenty of game action. He will remember the first time he played against Andrew Harris no doubt but all in will be a better player for getting the reps. Edmonton did well with Boateng as well.

Would love to see our new scout dig up some new blood and hope the regime will be open to his referrals and suggestions. Would be nice to see an organization chart to understand the decision making process as I am not clear at this point of who reports to who. 

Still a month to go before free agency. Wait and see. Sure to be something come up.

Will be very surprised if a deal is not already in place with Hurl. O Shea once again reinforcing a previously poor decision. It seems to be how he is wired.
