We need a new kicker

I'm not at all pleased. Sergio Castillo is not only an Import but I doubt he's as cheap as some Canadians , e. g. Tyler Crapigna or Marc Liegghio, thus exacerbating the Bombers' salary cap problems.

Cheer up sir. I'm sure that Import Sergio Castillo is just filling an IMMEDIATE need. Rookie National Marc Liegghio is still on the roster and continues to mature as a punter. Maybe sometime next year or the year after Liegghio will work his way into that dual punter-kicker role we were hoping he'd be able to handle this year. It's always great to have a national handle two positions at once and free up that extra import elsewhere on the roster. :smiley: :+1:

I always prefer a FG and punter individually .

I like to think that the punter can back up the FG kicker in a injury and the punter could do likewise in a game .

At least you would have some hope if either went down in a game .

They should at least practice every once in awhile to cross over just in case .


My preference too - so long as they're both Canadians. An import who does only one of the jobs is to me a tough luxury to justify.

My understanding is that kickers dedicated to one specialty x-over to the other specialty at the end of every practice for more than a few practice reps.

It makes sense now why they went with Mourtada this long. They probably had this deal done a couple weeks back but just agreed to not finalize it until after Winnipeg finished playing BC.
