Will the Bombers ever win the Grey Cup again?
17 straight years they've broken the hearts of Manitoba football fans... who's to blame?
The Bombers play in an 8 team league. Shouldn't they have accidentally won the Grey Cup by now? And I'm sorry but saying "Well, at least we're not Saskatchewan" is no longer comforting. I don't think it ever was.
True, all Winnipeg sports teams choke in the playoffs. Only once in a lifetime will a team come through. There was the Bombers Grey Cup win '90 and the Goldeyes championship in their 1st year in the Northern League in '94. Since then... nothing. Nothing but disappointment.
I think the problem is the organization. A first-class CFL ownership group would go into every single CFL season with one goal in mind: Winning the Grey Cup. But not in Bomberland, it seems.
It's either "saving the Bombers" (late 90's, early 21'st century)... eliminating the debt (" ")... have "rebuilding years" (almost every year since 1993), or increasing season ticket holders.
Hopefully private ownership and a new stadium will usher in a new era of Grey Cup wins for Winnipeg. Because really... things are broke right now, and have been for a long while.
