Bomber fans sure have gone from being the most cocky fans in the league to suddenly evacuating town.
for the last 3 weeks leading up to the back-to-back Labour day/Banjo-Bowl games, many of the Bombers fans were constantly harassing, making fun of, insulting and trashing the Rider fans on Facebook and other places. They were so sure of 2 wins and a nice fancy 9-1 record that they forgot to realize that you still have to play the games!
well, 2 losses later and a difference of 72 pts to 30 pts. Swaggerville is starting to look like a Ghost Town!
Not so cocky anymore are ya?
yes I know that not ALL Bomber fans are like this, so you don't need to tell me that...
But you get a little sick and tired of seeing all these Bomber fans who figure they're tops in the league (first time in how many seasons???) and they can now insult other fans and throw this swaggerville talk into their faces... and not have to face the consequences!
after next week, the Bombers will be 7-4 and thankfully have the lowly Argos.
They haven't even won a playoff game yet, never mind the Grey Cup.. and have their first great season since 2001 and they're acting like they've been there forever.
just remember this, the Alouettes went how many seasons being #1 in the East and sometimes #1 in the entire League only to lose when it mattered and got NOTHING. took them quite a few seasons to finally prove to people that they were for real and could actually win it.
nobody goes into the CFL and goes from 4-14 to a Grey Cup win without a little misfortune and trouble. The Bombers just faced their first true problems this year and already there's talk and emergencies.. some wanna get rid of Fred Reid, others are knocking Pierce..
the offense is their weakness, so far the Riders have exploited it and the Alouettes are about to do the same!
I bet you, that if Paul Lapolice had taken this Swaggerville and squashed it right at the start and got this teams heads in the right place, they just might be 9-1 now!
