I think I’ve finally figured Bauer out. He was happier than a pig in sh*t whether the Bombers were winning or losing; as long as the stands were full. His proudest accomplishment was that he brought back the Bombers from financial ruin when times were tough for the CFL.
There we were when the Blue Bumblers were 2-10, filling the stands–Bauer could care less, from what I saw. HE got his Grey Cup ring. I don’t think he cares if the the Bombers win another game, let alone another Grey Cup, as long as the bottom line looks good. We should let that bottom line sag and stop going to the games until Lyle Bauer is gone.
Think what you will about private ownership, but at least Asper REALLY wants the Bombers to win. I remember his tirade a couple a years ago–that’s what we need, someone who wants to win. I don’t think it’s Bauer.
