Yes I am very disappointed about Bishop Bombers! But am going to shake it off. Forgive me but I still think you missed most of Bishop`s magic moments in his CFL career. He had a lot including this year and last! As you know I fell away from the CFL while rooting for Flutie down south. That experience was so euphoric that it was hard to just pick up my passion where it left off in the CFL.
It returned but not until 2007 watching Bishop, he brought the passion back to the CFL for me! Now the finish of yesterdays game with the 2 late ints fits perfectly into the media line of good Bishop bad Bishop, or he always lets you down at the end etc....BUT that is not based in reality, it really is not. Last year in Sask and again this year in Winnipeg saw Bishop inserted into 2 bad situations, that`s all it was, Bish was not known for ints etc before last year in Sask. You know who leads the league in ints this year...DARIANT DURANT of Sask, he had a lot of ints last year as well.
Its really just the demonization of Michael Bishop, he has kind of a Mike Tyson look and sound about him sometimes, the media does not like him and that is why he has this handle the last 2 years. People have swallowed it hook line and sinker, and forgive me but I believe you also, having missed most of his FANTASTIC play only have media reports to fill you in. They really do not like him!
Now why would I say he was so great if it was not true? Why would Diane feel the same way? Why would the 2007 Argos players all overwhelmingly want Bishop over Joseph?
Anyway, perception becomes reality because people are stupid.
Now on yesterdays game, Bombers acting OC prior to the game actually told the press that he was going away from the game plan that won them 4 of their last 6 games. He said they where going to win this game by Reid running the ball, they wasted one down after the other trying to run up the middle, putting Bishop in 2nd and long and losing field position as they did. They had won 4 of their last 6 including 1 over Montreal, by throwing the ball deep, he said we are going to go away from throwing the ball deep. The game plan never allowed Bishop to get in a rhythm, it was run up the middle for zip or even a loss then it was 2nd and long.
As for the leafs all I can say is go Raptors go and take the Leafs with you....Just kidding
