finally the bombers might get out of being community owned now we can do illegal moves like toronto and BC and all the other teams that go over the salary cap but these teams every time they go over and declare bunkruptcy we always have to bail em out thats why we were always in the hole

...lol...more meds?...

I didn't hear any complaints out of Winnipeg when the other teams came up $700,000 so the Bombers wouldn't have to take the Bus :slight_smile: to Montreal, Hamilton and Toronto. Sounded like a bail out to me.

who would complain about free money wow your retarded if u where handed 700,000 you would complain thats gotta be the stupidiest coment i have ever red and the wouldn’t have taken the bus or anything i dunno but how many times has winnipeg had to declare bankruptcy over the last 20+ yrs none how many times has toronto a few hamilton a few montreal they lost there team for a few yrs

Ever heard of punctuation? I mean really.....

wow is this english class or a forum site???

When it's that long of a run-on sentence, it's extremely hard to follow.

...I know it's a little early '85 but good on you for getting a jump on Whiner of the Year 2007....

...seriously, your arguments are baseless, no fact backup or examples offered, only snivelling.....you complain about the BBs bailing out teams since when?, oh yeah, like eternity and then somehow ignore a $700,000 Grey Cup gift that helped your team get back into the black again...hey, I hope Aspers buys your team and does good things with it, but remember private ownership does not automatically make life swell (ala Feterik, Gleiberman, Pezim, etc.).....

Not that I have any idea what 85 is saying, but I just wanted to point out that the $700,000 was not a bail out.

...you're technically right dragoon, it was compensation for hosting the Grey Cup but even your own mgmt said it was much needed funds that would help right a ship that was financially listing badly, so if it sounds like a duck and walks like a duck then it can for all intents and purposes be called a duck......(or a penguin in your case)....

All he is saying is that over the past few years the bombers and other teams community owned had to help out teams finnacially. It was good that bombers got 700,000 but that still didn't get em back in the black because some was for GC. It will be good to have a private owner and Asper won't be a Glibermen because he has been along the bombers side for a few years now. But they won't be able to do illegal moves with the salary cap because i do believe that they are enforcing that new salary cap rule with taking draft picks and a certain amount of money for every cent over somethin like that anyways this coming season/offseason. (might not make a whole lotta sense but i think u guys will understand it a bit i hope)

I guess you forgot the Early 80's when the CFL had a thing called "Gate Equalization payments". Teams Like the Lions who had crowds of 50,000 + would be taxed to cover the not so luckey teams.

Be careful where you point fingers. Other than one or two teams, I think each CFL team has had a stretch in their history where they needed help from the strong.

Back on topic, I think this is a good thing that Asper is comming on board to improve things. That is good for the Bombers and their fans.

That's when you are always on time.....Right? :lol:

I think the official statement was that the $700,000 was compensation for the Bombers having to repeatedly jump back and forth from the East division to the West division because of the turmoil in Ottawa.
