I have been one of the toughest fans on the Bombers front office. I have said alot of bad things about Bauer & Taman. All I know is I now have had second thoughts. Since Lyle has joined the Bombers office he has added a new life to the Bombers. A life we havn't seen since the great Cal Murphy. I mean could anything be worse then Jeff Reinbold?
The fact is it wasn't to long ago that our Bombers were a play off team and a Grey Cup Contender. In fact they were the best damn team in the league.
However the team had a few set backs (losing the Grey Cup) a golfing QB, Good tallent leaving south. Now we have the 2005 Bombers. A team that is facing all odds and tring there hardest to bring back winning football to the Peg, to Manitoba. I read a article in the paper about how the team is in a position were once again we will lose money. Bauer has said the reality is the Grey Cup is comming in 2006 and that the team was tring to save money to make a move to better the club for a Grey Cup run here in the Peg. Bauer was quoted in the Winnipeg sun saying " As we told you back in april, the Bombers must be dept-free before they have access to their rainy day fund, which is approaching $1 Million. The plan is to use some of that money to ensure they'll field a Grey Cup contender next year, when the big game is in Winnipeg". He went on to say " Not only are we trying to improve our football team from last year, we're trying to get it situated for 2006, which we all know is a very important year".
Can we count on that Mr. Bauer. I have decided to buy two extra tickets to the rest of our home games. I reach out to the rest of you Bomber fans. Let's jump back on the band wagon. Let's sell out for the rest of the year. Let's make this team some money. After it's all said and done, then it's up to Bauer to keep his end of the deal. Let's do it. Spend your cash on the Blue people and it could be an investment we can all be proud of.
I trust you Lyle, don't screw us if we pull through.......
