I can’t beleive that one of the Best GM’s in the CFL is out of work. I say fire Taman and Hire Tillman. It’s a no brainer. Tillman has Smarts, contacts, resourses. Taman has nothing. It is bad enough that a community owned team can not compete financialy in this Millionair spending league, how can we build a team with a GM that can’t lure tallent to the team. Taman has had a chance and has made the Bombers a worse off team then improving it.
I give Sask Credit, Thanks to Cal Murphy for taking Roy Shivers under his wing and making him the GM that he is. He has Cal’s contacts down south and that is huge for the Riders. To bad he has such a mouth, but whatever works.
The funny thing is how Winnipeg and Sask helped bail out Toronto a few years back. Two low budget community owned teams. Then Toronto took that cash to pay Arlan Bruce and He hate Me Avery. They lured Bruce away from Winnipeg with cash that Winnipeg gave them to keep them in the league. Toronto is five times bigger then Winnipeg and Sask with alot more fans with cash. Go figure how that works. Then Bruce helps them to win the cup and Toronto is again the big dogs in the east.
Sure I’m a die hard Bomber fan. I sit in the stands with my stomach turning as the horror show continues for the Blue. I wonder what if we just start spending money and running a huge debt. Then we can get Tor, Edm, BC, Cal, Ott, and Mont to pay our bills, that sounds better, but it is just pipe smoke.
We need a Commish who want’s to make this league a fair league for all teams. I wouldn’t bring a new team into this league unless there as some insurence that the league will run fair and level for all teams.
The Bombers are in big trouble, It’s a fact. We need to start spending money, we can’t be a team that can compete when we are tring to pull ourselves out of debt. If we payed a guy like Ricky Ray 460 K, we would be so far in the whole we would be paying $200 bucks a game for nose bleed seats.
Knock the Bombers all you want… It’s not a fair league and the bombers and a few other teams are the victoms. Winnipeg stadium will be a ghost town before the season is over, that means more lost cash for the blue.
That’s my opinion, and maybe mine only. But the truth is out there. Open up your eyes.
