Bomber News and Discussion 2022 (Other than free agency)

...or play with a full one. :grin:

It is only one season since Medlock left over a three year period.

Bombers did the same thing with Trent Corney by drafting him and then signing Westerman and Okpalaugo. I would say they do not have a good track record of working with younger players but I know I would be heavily criticized for not understanding the plan.

Will be interesting to see if they do play Geoff Gray this year. Way more O linemen in camp than normal and could go import.

"Way more O linemen in camp than normal" is our new normal. We're one of the few teams in the CFL to figure out that total dominance in the trenches is gonna win lots of championships.

Don't tell anyone Carlos. I MEAN IT. I'm counting on your discretion here to keep our secret safe from the other teams. Once they've figured us out our three-peat chances will vaporize in a cloud of 'holy crap that was obvious'.

As I am a happy tourist in these parts, is the Medlock factory like a distillery for fine new products for the Rum Hut? With a candy store?

Does Winnipeg have its own Master Distiller and Willie Wonka too?

Sign me up!

It is whatever you want it to be. The only limit is your imagination (I hope I don’t regret saying that).

Future announcer too perhaps? He reminds of of that fine Australian comedian "Ozzy Man" from years ago with the alternate call for the 2014 World Cup in Brazil for Timmy Cahill's magnificent goal, but I can no longer find that clip.

Yes that is the same guy who covered that gymnast who got a 10 for not just her dance routine, which I probably should not post without permission.

:rofl: HA! That other thread too! That's not some new commenter either. I have my guess. He came here to troll.

Possibly. It crossed my mind. We’ll see if he sticks. If he doesn’t then you’re probably right. I used to love Spy v Spy but Troll v Troll is also entertaining.

And my guess I think turned out correct ha ha ha. The real guy showed!

You're out to lunch yet again.
Corny wasn't anywhere close to what Westerman brought. Thomas played ahead of Corny too.
Pretty sure Corny only amounted to a decent special teamer and could come into rotation in a pinch.
And when you have to go back 8 years to say we have a habit of doing something, thats a big reach there.....
I'd say we work just fine with young players, a handful of them are in the NFL now....
Jury's out on Grey. I'm hoping he can take a spot, but if he doesn't that is on him - not the club's "lack of development".

Well all this trivia and these states and information certainly are exciting, but tonight I feel like I had too much education on the forum.

I better stop by here in Winnipeg more often for a bit and be more careful wherever else I roam.

Can't believe the CBA negotiations with Miller and Bighill on opposite sides will not have a residual effect on their Bomber relationship.

I think so too. The residual effect of bringing them closer together and on their quest for 3 STRAIGHT GREY CUPS!!!!!!! WooHoo!!!! :cowboy_hat_face:

Speaking of Medlock, or some guy who kicked footballs for us...

"Ali Mourtada spent all offseason perfecting his kicks from the wider Canadian hash marks but when he arrived at Investors’ Group Field in Winnipeg this week, there were entirely new lines painted on the turf."

The CFL 'Nerd Patrol' sprang into action when they noticed Mourtada practicing diligently all by himself and dickishly moved the hash marks inwards. Afterwards they duct taped him to his locker with the words, "kickers don't get laid" taped to his forehead. So now I'm rooting for this guy. :smiley: :+1:
