Since the Bombers haven't won the Grey Cup in 27 years (going on 28 after what I saw yesterday), I figured I would go back and count the winners since the league's formation 50 years ago.
The count was more balanced than I thought it would be. Toronto likes to count the "Flintstone" cups before their first real win in 1983--no wonder fans there want a NFL franchise (couldn't resist that one). Anyway, here's the tally of Grey Cup winners in the modern era of Canadian football:[url=http://www.theglobeandmail.com/servlet/story/RTGAM.20071126.wspt-greycupwinners25/BNStory/GlobeSportsFootball]http://www.theglobeandmail.com/servlet/ ... tsFootball[/url]
Baltimore - 1
Saskatchewan - 3
Calgary, Montreal - 4
B.C., Toronto, Ottawa - 5
Hamilton - 6
Winnipeg - 7
Edmonton - 10
Winnipeg had a 4-Cup dynasty during the league's early years 1958-1962, while the Esks had a 5 cup dynasty from 1979-82 to put them ahead of the field.
The Blue Bombers (Bummers, Boners, Blowers) have the stigma of not having touched the Grey Cup since 1990--the worst drought since the 'Dirty 30's' of the Depression. Life is tough in Bomberland now.
