After the Alouettes decimated the Eskimos I was hoping the Alouettes would be back in 1st place…where they belong. 2nd or 3rd place simply doesn’t sit well with me.
But it looks pretty clear that we’re going to have to get used to the fact that the Winnipeg Blue Bombers aren’t going away…maybe for a long time. At least until the Ottawa “Whatever’s” are back and Winnipeg can go pester folks in the West for a change.
It’s a pretty young team, with a great defence and an offence that, if Buck Pierce can stay on his feet, will soon rival even the Alouettes.
I can’t decide if I prefer the competition…or to have the Alouettes “snug” in 1st place
I’m sure it’s good for the league
And Winnipeg fans are eating it up…and considering their suffering over the last few seasons…good for them
I guess I’ll see how the Alouettes do as the season progresses
But things do seem to have evolved this year
