Well, including the pre-season the Bombers are now 0-3 and show no signs of improving anytime soon.
We looked dreadful in our 1st two pre-season games and not much better in the season opener.
Face it, I know we have a "good team on paper", but we usually have had that since 1991- the results speak for themselves.
In 3 games this year we haven't even won ONE... and I don't think it's unrealistic to think the Bombers might not win ANY this year...
For the record I AM a Bomber fan living in Winnipeg, but we haven't won the Grey Cup since 1990 (my God that's 16 YEARS!) and there's no reason to believe it won't be ANOTHER 16 years before we win another.
The Bombers won't win a Grey Cup until the organization is making millions of dollars a year and can field a team with the highest payroll in the CFL. But the ONLY way they'll be able to do that is to use the revenues a new state-of-the-art stadium will bring them. (It's impossible to make money at old, outdated Canad Inns Stadium... it's the "Winnipeg Arena" of the CFL)
Face it guys... it doesn't take a genius to figure out the Bombers organization goal is to whittle away at the ridiculous "debt" caused by Canad Inns Stadium, Winnipeg Enterprises, and years of mis-management...NOT win the Grey Cup.
At least the team admits as much. Last year it was "rebuilding year"... this year "the goal is to make the playoffs"...
Have we ever heard the team/organization/players say "Our goal this year is to win the Grey Cup"?
I don't know what I'd like more.. for them to say THAT, or to say "Our goal is to finish last overall"- so far at least ONE year we'll be pleasantly surprised.
S ucks being a Bomberfan.
If I'm out of line here, please let me know.
