Getting to think a 6pm start is late. Not sure how our eastern fans ever handled the 10pm est starts, I’d have been asleep halfway through.

Well if Dru Brown can put these Stamps away early you’ll be able to switch off the telly and hit the hay before halftime. But the way we let these struggling teams steamroll us early on I’d say you might be in for a long night cheering us on as we come back and disappoint yet another home crowd with our late game heroics and muscle pumping.

We do know how to spoil a party. :partying_face:

Here’s our Depth Chart in case anyone wants to check out our kickass lineup of Wheezers and Geezers:

Some of them might be old but they can all still remember the words to our National… um, whatever that thing is that we sing before the game. Dad rat it. :football: :beaver:

Big game for both teams. The obvious for Calgary but BB also has to keep pace with BC. It’s going to be a big game for Dru Brown, possibly his last chance this season to up his free agency value. Collaros may not sit anymore games this season if BB & BC stay close. They may not have the option of sitting many of their starters like they had the luxury of doing in seasons past.

Is that the stuff that keeps referring to ‘Our glowing hearts’? (like we’ve all been exposed to some kind of nuclear blast?)

From that graphic, it already appears to me like the Bombers Mowing Crew is ready and “hong-gry,” for they have been practicing The Blade.

We’ll never be able to afford Dru’s contract next season. He’s on his way to getting Zach Money:

If Collaros were to retire you could, but is that likely? He’s no spring chicken anymore.

I was thinking about that today. What if Dru Brown continues to improve at this rate and Kyle Walters jaw hits the floor? We’d have a welcome quarterback controversy on our hands. We might even go on a youth kick next season to keep up with your up and coming Elks.

Just had a vision of you guys benching Zack in favour of Brown ala BLM. Sometimes my grip on reality isn’t so strong, I blame arthritis.:smile:

Zach signed a new three year deal last year with half of his base salary ($250,000) in year three guaranteed. Barring injury it appears Zach intends to play two more seasons after this one at least. If Brown stays in Winnipeg he will surely have to wait.

That could happen… and stop calling me Shirley.

Zach isn’t too old. i can think of 8 CFL teams that would sign him in a heartbeat.

he doesn’t actually have as much mileage as people think because he floated around as a backup and had injuries earlier in his career.

A radio host down south of us has suggested that this guy should sign with a CFL club:

Nice. I hope that the kids didn’t put up too much of a fight when you assigned them a book report on The Grapes of Wrath that’ll be due by Monday.
