OK. While we figure out where to get our football fix with NFL Europe finishing their season and we wait for the NFL training camp to begin, why not enjoy the 3 downs, 110 yard field version complete with midget QBs running for they lives?? It's ....

If you're lucky, you can see ex-NFL players like Andre Rison play! Season kicked off Wednesday. Who watches? What's your picks?

Well, the preseason games mean shit in the CFL.  There were a couple of times when a team that lost all of it's preseason games went all the way and won the Grey Cup!  I'll personally have to wait a couple of weeks, see how the teams and players are doing before I start making picks.

Well, let me start off in this thread by saying that Khari Jones is washed up.  Ever since the baby was born a couple of years ago, its all gone downhill from there.  Now the Blue Bombers have to rebuild again this year, while former team leader/superstar Khari plays 3rd stringer in daigongtown.  I just hope we don't suck as bad as Hamilton did a couple of years ago, when they only won 1 game the whole season.  Go Blue!

ROFL! Man...and to think we was gonna sign him a big 30 G contract or something. dude got released. how shitty is that!

That's the hilarious thing about the CFL. We got 45 year old QB's dominating the league - and any team can go from the worst team EVER to Grey Cup Champs.

We'll see how the Esks do against the Renegades tmr...whoever the QB is. :lol:

Fuckin' Blue Bombers.  Seriously, 42-15?  Ok, its still early I suppose, but still.  This is a far cry from the insanely close season we had in 2001.  Still a long way until Grey Cup!  Not like we're gonna get there anyway....

i dunno man, i think saskatchewan will do well this year.

going slightly off-topic here, i was on the same flight as calvillo on a flight from montreal to los angeles back when he first joined the als.  luckily i was able to get his autograph 8) but i don't think many people recognized him.

speaking of which, i also remember being on a flight with the whole team going to toronto.  didn't get any autographs that time though, didn't recognize the players who were sitting around me :oops:

let's hope the als actually win the grey cup this year :roll:

We've had the new turf shit for a few years now, the Bombers players have said that it grips better while they're running, and they prefer it compared to the old astroturf.  KG's just gotta learn how the receivers think, get used to their patterns, and how NOT to rely on the defence, which has been magnificent in the past, but hasn't been as good the last couple of years.  Milt Stegall and Charles Roberts are fuckin' amazing, and once they get that chemistry together with Kevin Glenn, ooh, look out.

Ok, as much as I don't like the Argos, Bashar Levingston on Wednesday's game when he returned that missed fieldgoal was freaking awesome!  He was at the BACK of his own endzone, which btw is 20 yards deep, not 10 like the NFL, psyched everyone out, casually jobbed up the sidelines, and took the ball all the way for a touchdown across the whole 110 yards!

Suck on that, Matt Dunigan!

Poor kickers can't get any love.  If they miss a last-second potentail game-winning field goal, they get lynched.  If they make it, it wasn't because of thier skill as a kicker, it's because the rest of the offense was able to get close enough for them to pull it off.

Either way, sux to be the Eskies kicker right now.

What about when fuckin' Troy Westwood the fucker missed 3 field goals in a Grey Cup game!?!?  Back in 2001, then Blue Bombers head coach Dave Ritchie publically bitched about Troy not concentrating on his kicking game.  Why, you ask?

Well, cuz he also plays bass guitar for some local band during the evenings.  During the day, he sells used cars.  And once a week, he manages to squeeze in time to be a CFL kicker.

LMFAO...yeah. CFL players in general get no love. Driving Frito trucks during the offseason. :lol:

Yeah, the whole filed position game makes Kickers such a premium, even though they're a joke with their geeky helmets. but yeah, no respect for kickers: Paul McCallum getting his house egged and shitted on still cracks me up.  :lol:

Sean Flemming used to be money in the bank, but fuck. I remember the media bitched how he, being the last line of defense went to throw his body against a punt returner. DOOD. that's what MEN do. And last season Coach Higgins made this fake punt play at like the last seconds before the half and Flemming fucked it up big time. Now Eskies have this American guy or whatever and his whole trajectory cost us the game.

So Khari Jones requested to be released from the TiCats a couple of days ago rather than have his playing time reduced.  What a dope, seriously.  I mean, I can understand his desire to play and complete and all.  But look at the options he had:

a) Stay on the team, stay on the team's payroll, but potentially play less.
b) Get released from the team, get paid NOTHING until you join another team, and get NO playing time at all..

He chose option (b).  :evil:  :evil:  :evil:

Considering he's got two kids and a wife to look after, swallow your fucking pride!!!  Sure, you WERE a CFL Player-of-The-Year...once.  But NOW, first and foremost, you ARE a husband and father, who has toprovide for his family.  Make THAT your primary concern.

Then Lapointe was going crazy and I go - shit, do they bring in Maas in the final minute? 3rd and fuckin 4 and the completion to Mookie Mitchell solidified it!! CFL OT is great :lmfao:

Is it just me or does the Grey Cup seem like really light. Aluminium or whatever cuz that Governor General chick lifted it up by herself XD

The funniest was when Cavillo was so desperate at the end and kicked the ball!! Or when Maciocia was leaping like a dork! And him and Coach Matthews had the coldest handshake since Chairman Mao and Nixon met. Oh and this:

Edmonton gets 1st win of the year!! Rally to win 18-14 over Stamps!

EDMONTON (CP) - Jason Tucker reeled in a pair of 35-yard touchdown passes to complete two long second-half drives to lead the Edmonton Eskimos to a come from behind 18-14 victory over the Calgary Stampeders.

The win left both clubs with 1-1 records after splitting the home and home series.

Calgary struck first when kicker Sandro DeAngelis hit for a 43-yard field goal just 1:49 in, the 3-0 lead holding up through the first quarter.

The Stamps looked to have put the first major on the board early in the second when running back Joffrey Reynolds crossed into the endzone on a great second effort, but the play was called back on a holding call and Calgary was forced to settle for a 12-yard DeAngelis field goal.

The scoring kept coming in dribs and drabs for the Stampeders as they followed a big 46 yard reception by Jeremaine Copeland with another DeAngelis three-pointer, this one from 37 yards with five minutes remaining in the quarter.

The crowd of 40,491 was short of the 43,927 needed to push overall Eskimo attendance at Commonwealth Stadium over the 9,000,000 mark.

The Eskimos looked to finally have their offence going with a drive late in the second quarter but Ed Hervey was determined to have fumbled after a video review challenge by the Stamps, who recovered the ball and went in to the dressing room with a 9-0 lead at the half.

The Eskimos had a stronger start to the second half but didn't get much out of their initial drive as Sean Fleming's 25-yard field goal attempt was wide for a single.

But the Esks would manage the first major of the match with 8:12 remaining in the third as QB Ricky Ray engineered a three-play, 83-yard drive, finished off with a 35-yard TD strike to Jason Tucker to cut Calgary's lead to a point.

DeAngelis put his fourth field goal through the uprights 4:33 into the fourth to put the Stamps ahead 12-8.

But the Eskimos air attack would answer again with another long drive, going six plays for 79 yards in just over two minutes as Ray hit Tucker for another 35 yard TD pass to put Edmonton ahead for the first time in the game, 15-12.

Tucker almost had a third TD with just over three minutes remaining but was ruled out of bounds, leading to an 11 yard field goal by Fleming, giving the Esks an 18-12 lead.

The Stamps had one last glorious chance to regain the lead as QB Henry Burris hit Copeland with a 42-yard pass down to the Edmonton five-yard line. But on the very next play Burris was picked off by Shannon Garrett in the endzone, securing the Eskimo victory. The Eks conceded a late safety.

The two teams met last Saturday in Calgary with the Stamps coming out on top 24-14. The clubs will play another back-to-back series in September when they meet for the annual Labour Day Classic and rematch.

The Stamps host Hamilton next Thursday while the Eskimos travel to Winnipeg to face the Blue Bombers next Saturday.

Notes: Since interlocking league play began in 1961, the Eskimos and Stampeders had never opened the season with back-to-back home-home games against each other until this year. . . Eskimos greats Warren Moon and Brian Kelly were at the game representing Edmonton as the best quarterback-receiver combo in CFL history. Over the next nine weeks passing tandems from each CFL team will be revealed and fans can vote online at cfl.ca for their favourites.

Check it out! (I can't find it on the site :P)

I mean, you're already in field goal range with less than a minute to go. Field goal will tie it and send it to OT, but they decide to pass from the post to the guy who's facing DOUBLE coverage?!?!! That's the DUMBEST muthafuckin' thing they could've done! And THEN when TO fumbles, giving the Bombers another chance, what do the coaches do? THEY SEND OUT THE 3rd STRINGER QB WHO'S BEEN SITTING ON THE BENCH FOR MOST OF THE SEASON!!!! What does he do?

Yeah, that wasn't cool to watch.  Its like they just completely forgot about Charles Roberts in the whole 4th quarter when they could have used him well.

It was a weird game completely though.  Two field goals that hit the right upright by BOTH teams, two back to back turnovers in the 2nd half, and both teams did all their scoring in one half of the game.

I'm still thinking for the Cup it'll be BC vs Montreal.

Didn't know there was a CFL thread here. Sweet!

I feel bad for Maas in Hamilton. Watching him talking to reporters, it was almost like he was going to cry. And scoring ten points in the last three home games is painful to think, even for a non-TiCats fan.

My Lions got no action this week, but it's good for Dickenson. I was at the Lions-Esks game when he went down with that "high ankle sprain" I keep hearing/reading about. I'm glad that Buck Pierce is very capable backup, but when we face the Als later this week, we'll need as much firepower possible.

I dedicate my 9200th post to the Edmonton Eskimos rolling up the Roughriders and Argos and taking the final playoff spot on the last fuckin day of the season to keep their ridiculous pro sports consecutive playoff streak alive!! I BELIEVE!!

That saying...how deflating. Jason "My fave Eskies QB of the 21st Century" Maas rolled up the old squad. Congrats to Terry Vaughn for getting his 1000th reception. Another tough loss to the Ti-Cats - WORST TEAM IN THE CFL!

on a more serious note, RIP Jackie Parker. Eskimos legend. He was 74.
(http://www.esks.com/media/images/hallofhonour/Parker.jpg)

“The Fast Freight from Mississippi State” or “Ole Spaghetti Legs” starred as quarterback, halfback and defensive back for the Edmonton Eskimos from 1954 to 1962, the Argos from 1963 to 1965 and B.C. Lions from 1966 to 1968. He played on three Grey Cup winners with Edmonton, won the Schenley as the CFL's top player three times, was an All-Star for eight straight years and he scored 750 points, including 88 touchdowns rushing and 75 TDs passing. Jackie’s dramatic 84- yard TD run in the 1954 Grey Cup game remains one of pro sports most memorable plays. Jack is a member of Canada's Sports Hall of Fame, The Canadian Football Hall of Fame and joined the Eskimo Wall of Honour in 1983.

Off-season trade rumours have already begun. Read today in the newspaper that one of the big ones apparently has Calvillo coming to Peg Sheety in exchange for Glenn and Barrin Simpson. :o

All I have to say is...fuck this better not be true. Calvillo's contract is too fat (he makes the same as Glenn and Simpson combined) and to be honest, at his age, given his tendency to have hot/cold spells, he ain't worth it.

But then ULTRA DOMINANCE in the 2nd and 3rd quarters! :rockon: Started off with a single, then TD partaaaaaaaaaaaaay!  Als are 0-2 for the first time in years! 8)

Als defence was totally focused on Milt for pretty much the whole game. Luckily our other receivers stepped up and came through with clutch receptions when we needed them. AWESOME JOB GUYS!!! And like Milt said near the end of the game, "It's all about the win".  Next week's another home game, and Milt's gonna fuckin' break that record against them Eskies!

 "I want to have fun playing football again," said Maas yesterday when introduced to the media.

"The last two years were by far the toughest time in my career. Losing sucks and when you're losing you spend so much time trying to figure out what is wrong and it drains you mentally."

Read in today's paper that the Milt is going to miss out on most (if not all) of training camp and at least the first few games of the season because he's still recovering and doing rehab from the knee operation that he had at the beginning of this month. :(

Well, as long as he comes back eventually.

Eskimo's official site with reaction: http://esks.com/default.aspx?tabid=825

(Edmonton) CFL Hall of Famer and former Eskimo head coach Ron Lancaster passed away this morning at the age of 69. Lancaster was diagnosed with lung cancer in July.

Lancaster was the head coach of the Eskimos from 1991-1997, appearing in the Grey Cup twice (1993, 1996) and winning the championship in 1993. He won more games as head coach of the Eskimos than any other coach.

Ron became the head coach of the Hamilton Tiger-Cats in 1998 and was most recently the club’s senior adviser to organizational development.

Ron had a brilliant 19-year CFL playing career with Ottawa and Saskatchewan. He spent his first three seasons with Ottawa, winning the Grey Cup in his first season in 1960. He was then traded to Saskatchewan and led the ‘Riders to the playoffs 14 of his 16 seasons. He is third all-time on the CFL's career list with 3,384 pass completions, 6,233 pass attempts and 50,535 yards passing. Ron won the Schenley Award as most outstanding player in 1970 and 1976 and was a finalist for the award in 1966. He was an All-Canadian in 1970, 1973, 1975 and 1976 and a Western all-star in 1966, 1968, 1969, 1970, 1973, 1975 and 1976. He was inducted into the Canadian Football Hall of Fame in 1982 and the Canadian Sports Hall of Fame in 1985.

(http://img220.imageshack.us/img220/5898/s111235aru8.jpg)


In a move that wasn't that much of a surprise to anyone other than Doug Berry himself, the Blue & Gold said goodbye to their now former coach after 3 seasons.

Doug Berry Relieved Of Coaching Duties

The Winnipeg Football Club announced Wednesday that Doug Berry was relieved of his duties as head coach of the Blue Bombers after three seasons with the team.

“This move has been made in what the club believes is in the best interest of the on-field product,” said Lyle Bauer, president and CEO of the Blue Bombers. “We thank Doug for his contribution over the past three years and wish him the best in the future.”
 
Berry, the 26th head coach in franchise history, leaves the organization with a record of 27-26-1. (http://www.bluebombers.com/index.php?option=com_content&task=view&id=1194&Itemid=256)
http://www.bluebombers.com/index.php?option=com_content&task=view&id=1194&Itemid=256

Of course, there's already lots of speculation on who's going to be named his replacement.

Besides his coaching career in Regina, Hall was a stellar defensive back in Calgary and Saskatchewan.

Simpson seeking trade from Bombers
Winnipeg Free Press - ONLINE EDITION
By: Gary Lawless
11/09/2009 10:36 AM

WINNIPEG — Barrin Simpson is almost certainly finished with the Winnipeg Blue Bombers.

The veteran linebacker has asked the Blue Bombers for a trade and the club has been shopping him around the league in an attempt to recoup something for the 31-year-old disgruntled defender.

Simpson, who has not taken part in practice with the Bombers this week, was on the field this morning in his Bombers' practice gear but didn't take part in any drills.

Then Blue Bombers Director of Football Operations Ross Hodgkinson approached Simpson on the practice field with a piece of paper, and asked Simpson to sign it. The player and the executive then left the field.

Simpson has been slowed by a turf toe all season and head coach Mike Kelly and defensive co-ordinator Mark Nelson have approached him about a limited role in the next little while and the veteran wants no part of that. Simpson has not answered his cell phone since late last night and the team has said they'll make him available following practice this morning.

Simpson, however, has spoken to the Globe and Mail's David Naylor on the issue and his comments leave little room for a resolution between the club and the player:

"I was told this week they wanted to try a different combination group, they said 'we feel this would be a better fit for us right now,'" said Simpson. "Of course I was upset about that so I said 'give me an explanation. Have I been playing bad?' They said 'you've been playing great but we just want to try a different combination in the linebacking corps.

"I'm not with that. That tells me we're rebuilding and it's no longer about winning games this season. So I said 'coach if that's what you want to do, then I respectfully disagree. You can't ask me to be a backup and have me agree with that. You say I'm playing good football and anyone who watches film knows that.'

"My thing is I want to win now and to me this was him saying 'we want to see what the future holds.' I said 'coach, I respectfully disagree and I will ask you to trade me.' There was no yelling, we talk like men.

"I've been playing great football so to ask me to take less reps or sit down so you can see another combination is not acceptable to me. It comes off as 'we want to see what's going to work in the future.'"

The Bombers, who to this point have refused to comment on the issue, have a young and talented linebacker in 26-year-old Joe Lobendahn as well as 28-year-old Siddeeq Shabazz rounding into form after early-season ankle injuries.

Correct. Officially, the Canadian border authourity wouldn't allow him across the border due to his criminal record.

Unofficially there are, of course, rumours stating that there are other reasons why the Bombers decided to stop trying to sign him.

Bombers sign Troy Westwood

- Likely to handle punting duties

By: Ed Tait
19/10/2009 1:20 PM


He's 42 and hasn't kicked in a real game in about 16 months. But the Winnipeg Blue Bombers are hoping Troy Westwood still has some life left in his left leg.

Bomber head coach Mike Kelly announced Monday the team has added the 16-year veteran to their practice roster and he could punt for the team as early as this Saturday when the Montreal Alouettes pay a visit.

Westwood will be on the practice field Tuesday afternoon and if he can prove he can handle the punting, he'll take that load from Alexis Serna. Mike Renaud, the team's regular punter, suffered a season-ending knee injury in the win over the Hamilton Tiger-Cats on Thanskgiving. And while Serna filled in capably in the interim, he also missed two field goals in Sunday's 24-21 loss to the B.C. Lions and Kelly wants him to concentrate solely on the placekicking.

Enter Westwood, the team's all-time leading scorer.

"At my age when that much time passes when you've been cut or released it's very unusual to get an opportunity. So, I'm very aware of how precious this opportunity is and I plan on making the most of it," said Westwood.

"Someone asked me (Sunday) early in the day if there was any chance of me maybe coming back to punt and I said, 'There's absolutely no hope whatsoever of that.' So I just about fell over when I checked my phone at the movie theatre. I was very surprised and I've been more or less just trying to contain or control my emotions since that point. I've felt like vomiting for the vast majority of the day so far."

Westwood said he has been kicking fairly regularly and played soccer all summer. But he hasn't kicked in game conditions since the preseason of 2008 before he was released by then-head coach Doug Berry.

"This is not a condemnation at all on what Alexis Serna did yesterday," said Kelly. "But this gives us an opportunity to bring Troy in on the practice roster and see what he can do. If, in fact, we feel he can help us then we will activate him and it allows Alexis to just do what he's doing better than just about anybody in the league this year and that's kick extra points and field goals. Troy's kept himself in great shape and I just think it could be beneficial in a lot of different ways.

"We're fortunate that we have someone like Westwood who unceremoniously was disbarred from this organization last year. That isn't how we want to treat Winnipeg Blue Bombers and Troy is a hall-of-fame type player here in my humble eyes. For him to be more or less be discarded the way he was... I don't want players who are long-time Bombers to think that's the kind of fate they face in some point. He should have left this club with a little more dignity than what he left it with last year.

"We'll give him an opportunity. If it works out, great. And if it doesn't then he'll know he's always going to be a Blue Bomber in our eyes."

LOL, we were at a friend's place watching the game. As soon as the first kick went up and the penalty flags went flying I was all "PENALTY FLAG! BRING IT BACK! BRING IT BAACK!" :lol:

Despite what many may claim as a "lucky" win because of Saskatchewan's last minute fuck-up, gotta remember that the Als wouldn't have even had a chance at the win here if they hadn't been storming back during the second half the way that they did. They totally earned this win.  The 'Riders kept talking about how "The 13th man" would make the difference (supposed to be a reference to their insanely supportive fans); well they couldn't have been more right. In this case "the 13th man" cost them the game and the championship.

I've already seen rumours on a local Peg Sheety forum that says that there are already T-shirts being made that will read "I WAS THE 13th MAN." :rofl:

Bombers sever ties with Kelly
"Firing happens just hours after his arrest " Chairman says 'it was time to move on'[/b]

By: Gary Lawless - 18/12/2009 1:00 AM

WINNIPEG - Mike Kelly's fiery reign as the Winnipeg Blue Bombers head coach flamed out for good Thursday.

Kelly was fired at about 8 p.m. Thursday, just hours after being arrested and charged with assault following a domestic dispute in the morning at his home near Philadelphia.

"I'm here to announce on behalf of the board of directors that Mike Kelly has been relieved of his duties as head coach," said Bombers chairman Ken Hildahl, who earlier Thursday announced Lyle Bauer's resignation as Bombers CEO. "It's a tough decision but I've been saying repeatedly to you for the last six weeks we were reviewing the performance of the head coach and we came to the conclusion tonight that based on that assessment it was time to move on and find a new head coach."

Hildahl said the decision was not based on Kelly's arrest.

"No. We recognize that an incident did take place but in the eyes of the law these are allegations and allegations only," said Hildahl.

Kelly's job security was already in question and his arrest appears to have given the board of directors cause to fire him and void his contract. A board member told the Free Press on Thursday -- prior to hearing of Kelly's arrest -- that the coach would not receive their endorsement and any decision about his employment would be left to a new CEO.

If the team can show cause, they will not be on the hook for the final two years of Kelly's contract.

"We haven't looked at (whether or not Kelly's dismissal can be termed as just cause) but we'll deal with those issues moving forward," Hildahl said.

Hildahl was asked if the club could afford having to pay Kelly out for the final two years of his contract, which would reportedly cost the club in the neighbourhood of $500,000.

"We haven't even considered that," said Hildahl, who earlier in the day told the media that the club had more than $5 million in a rainy-day fund. "Can we afford it? Absolutely. Is it the right thing to do for the club and the fans of this city? I believe it is."

A CFL executive told the Free Press on Thursday most coaches have a code-of-conduct clause in their contract. Criminal charges such as the ones brought against Kelly would be considered a breach of contract, said the executive.

Hildahl was asked how Kelly took the news but said the team had only spoken to Kelly's representatives.

The day started out ominously for Kelly as Bauer, his greatest champion, informed the club via conference call that he was resigning. Kelly participated in the call but was detained by police in Pennsylvania just an hour later.

After the arrest, Kelly was taken to jail where he made bail. He is to appear in court on Dec. 23.

Kelly could not be reached after the firing, but the Free Press did contact him by telephone after the arrest.

"I can't talk right now," said Kelly, before hanging up.

Hildahl said the team, now looking for a CEO and a head coach, hoped to begin that process immediately.

"It's our intent as a board to move quickly. We're meeting as a board on Saturday. We have a number of gaps in the organization but we hope to have a plan in place to fill these positions and move forward in a positive fashion," said Hildahl.

Hildahl said the board has no preference which vacancy will be filled first.

"The person we put into both of these positions we want to be rock solid," said Hildahl. "Solid moral background and somebody that's going to come in and repair some of the damage done to the brand of the football club. I want to say to the fans that these moves are made to try and re-establish the trust they should have in this football club."

Kelly was hired by the Bombers in December 2008 and led the team to a 7-11 record during a tumultuous 2009 Canadian Football League season.

Kelly was passionate about his job but had trouble delegating and dealing with the media.

Kelly pushed Brendan Taman out of his player-personnel role and trashed him on his way out the door, saying Taman did his job on napkins instead of keeping proper files.

Kelly then traded for unproven quarterback Stefan LeFors and released veteran Kevin Glenn. LeFors struggled early and an injury ended his season after just three games. The club had to sign Michael Bishop in an attempt to salvage the season.

Glenn, who signed with the Hamilton Tiger-Cats, would eventually end the Bombers' season. He kept the Bombers out of the playoffs by leading the Tiger-Cats to a win over Winnipeg at Canad Inns Stadium in the final regular-season game.

Kelly had many run-ins with the media and fans, swearing on a post-game show and refusing to take calls from fans on his radio program.

Kelly also butted heads with veteran players Derick Armstrong and Barrin Simpson and there were whispers in the locker-room all season about the coach's integrity.

Bauer, who hired Kelly and defended him throughout the season, could no longer protect the coach Thursday.

"I have no idea what's going on there. It's unfortunate and the timing is awful," said Bauer. "I feel sorry for him in a way because he just can't get a break. But domestic is domestic... Whatever that personal situation is it will be his personal situation to deal with. I'm not aware of any of the details."

Blue legend Bauer bids adieu
After 10 years as team's CEO, he becomes 'a free agent'

By: Ed Tait - 18/12/2009 1:00 AM

(http://img200.imageshack.us/img200/1247/1735830.jpg)

Lyle BAUER officially declared himself a free agent on Thursday, but the former face of the Winnipeg Blue Bombers might not be on the open market for very long.

In fact, a CFL source confirmed a Free Press report from last month that speculated the Bomber Hall of Famer will soon be announced as the next president of the Calgary Stampeders. Bauer would replace Scott Ackles, who left the Stamps earlier this week to become the chairman of the 2011 Grey Cup in Vancouver.

"It's been a long time since I've been a free agent," Bauer said Thursday from Utah. "There have been opportunities that have been made available or have been presented over the last decade that I've passed on, both inside and outside of sports and entertainment.

"We'll see. But there's no question I have an extreme passion for this league as a player and as an executive. I'm in the position now to be able to talk to somebody if that's the case."

Thanking fans

Bauer began a media conference attended by the Bomber front-office staff by speaking for nine minutes, thanking fans, the club's board and those who worked side by side with him in taking the franchise from a dire financial situation to the $5 million it now has in a rainy-day fund.

But what also became clear over the last month or so -- a month in which he recommended to the board the club retain the services of head coach Mike Kelly -- is Bauer was weary of having more and more of his decisions scrutinized by the executive.

As well, he spoke of the uncertainty swirling around the franchise with the impending transfer of ownership to David Asper. Of course, he's also battled cancer, lost some friends to the disease and has a completely different outlook on life than he did when he first came aboard in 2000.

"Sometimes you have to hand things off," Bauer said. "We all know there's a change coming with this organization and it's been coming over the past couple of years with the agreement going forward with a potential ownership. The intent was to continue along those paths and contribute as much as possible.

"We all have a shelf life and we all need to realize that and deal with it. You have to be true to yourself, and the last number of months, and maybe even the last couple of years, these are things that have certainly been in the back of my mind.

"I also believe new blood, new energy and new excitement and new initiatives are important for any organization to go forward," Bauer added. "Professionally, it's a good thing for the organization, and personally, it's a good thing for me going forward as well. A decade is a long time.

"It was some very, very difficult circumstances that we were able to overcome. I just think it's the right time and 10 years is a long run."

Bauer's decision to leave means the club won't take a financial hit on honouring the remainder of his contract. In addition, Mike Kelly's arrest on Thursday likely means he is in breach of the morality clause in his contract and the team would not have to honour the remaining two years of his deal.

As well, a Bomber executive also confirmed the team is also now free of its financial obligations to former head coach Doug Berry.

Bomber chairman of the board Ken Hildahl, meanwhile, rejected the suggestion that questions about the team's future ownership structure would make it difficult to find a candidate to replace Bauer. He did add, however, that Creswin Properties (David Asper) would be consulted in any hiring.

"There will be significant interest in this position," said Hildahl. "Obviously, as we're going through the hiring process we'll be cognizant of the fact there may be a change of ownership somewhere down the road and we'll work somewhat co-operatively with Creswin to get their input to try and bring stability to the situation.

"I'm not saying it will be a formal working relationship, but certainly it would be in everyone's best interest to have a consultative role with Creswin."

When Bauer took over here the Bombers were nearly $5 million in debt. With all the work that he's done, we now have close to $5 million surplus in a "rainy day/emergency" fund. A lot of people here don't give him the credit he deserves for turning the franchise around financially and basically keeping it up and running when it was on the verge of having to cease operation. Stamps are a lucky franchise to get him.

Shell denies spitting at Ticat

To add insult to injury, Argonauts defensive back Lin-J Shell was ejected for unsportsmanlike conduct following DeAndra' Cobb's touchdown late in Friday's 16-12 victory by the visiting Hamilton Tiger-Cats.

He reportedly spit in the face of Ticats linebacker Auggie Barrenechea, a contention Shell denied following the game.

"He spit in our player's face," Hamilton head coach Marcel Bellefeuille said. "I don't know which player it was, but that's how it was explained to me … those are the types of things that happen in a game."

Toronto bench boss Jim Barker said Shell isn't the type of player to resort to such tactics.

"That's totally not his character," Barker said. "He probably shouldn't have been talking to the player.

"We take full responsibility for all the penalties that were called against us."

Blue Bombers storm back late in the fourth, stun B.C. Lions 47-35 in overtime
By: Judy Owen, The Canadian Press | Posted: 11/10/2010 7:24 PM


WINNIPEG - Deon Beasley wasn't happy with the way he was playing and vowed to make a difference.

The Winnipeg Blue Bombers defensive back did just that when he returned an interception 72 yards for a touchdown in overtime Monday to seal the Bombers' stunning 47-35 win over the B.C. Lions.

"I wasn't making the plays I was supposed to make, but I told myself and I told my coach, 'Keep trying me and before this game is over with I'm going to make a play,'" Beasley said.

Beasley intercepted Casey Printers after Winnipeg running back Yvenson Bernard had already scored a touchdown on a two-yard run to give the Blue Bombers a 41-35 lead. It was the second pick of the season for the rookie out of Texas.

In the first overtime possession, Lions kicker Sean Whyte booted a 30-yard field goal. Justin Palardy replied with a 32-yarder for Winnipeg.

The victory before a season-low 25,016 fans at Canad Inns Stadium kept Winnipeg's slim playoff hopes alive by bumping the Bombers' record to 4-10.

B.C. dropped to 5-9 and sits in third place in the West Division ahead of Edmonton (4-10). With the Lions' loss, both Calgary and Saskatchewan clinched home playoff games.

No worries dude. It was actually somewhat interesting to watch the performance of the rookie QB that the Blue had to send in because all of our other guys are on the shelf for the remainder of the year. For a kid who didn't have a single down's worth of experience in the CFL, I'd say he didn't do too badly.

Blue Bombers defensive line coach Richard Harris dies after collapsing
By: The Canadian Press
Posted: 07/26/2011 4:15 PM


WINNIPEG - Richard Harris, the Winnipeg Blue Bombers assistant head coach and defensive line coach, died Tuesday afternoon after collapsing at Canad Inns Stadium. He was 63.

A league source requesting anonymity said Harris collapsed in his office and was rushed to hospital where he was pronounced dead. Harris was in his sixth season with the CFL club.

Bombers president Jim Bell confirmed Harris's death.

“This has struck our entire organization from the top down,” he said in a statement. “We are all in a state of shock and first and foremost would like to express our deepest sympathies to his family.

"The Winnipeg Football Club has lost not only a great coach, but an even better man.”

Blue Bomber players immediately took to social networking site Twitter to express their sorrow and disbelief.

"Coach Harris was one of the best people I have ever met," tweeted long-snapper Chris Cvetkovic. "Every man should strive to be the type of man that coach Harris was."

"Hurtin so much right now ... lost a gr8 man, father figure to me ... man things will never be the same in WPG," wrote defensive back Alex Suber.

Harris joined the Bombers in 2006 as their defensive line coach and was appointed assistant head coach prior to the start of this season.

Winnipeg's defence has played a major role in the club's resurgence this year. The Bombers (3-1) are tied with Montreal atop the East Division standings after posting a league-worst 4-14 record in 2010.

The club's defence is allowing a league-low 293 yards per game and is ranked second in fewest points allowed (19.2 per game). And the defensive line has terrorized rival quarterbacks, posting a league-high 15 sacks.

"I had the good fortune to chat with him on the sideline in Winnipeg only recently, and that experience confirmed for me what I had always heard about Coach Harris — that this was a man of tremendous warmth and knowledge, a true gentleman and a credit to our game,'' CFL commissioner Mark Cohon said in a statement.

Harris arrived in Winnipeg after one season with the Ottawa Renegades as their defensive line coach. He had the same role for four years before that with the B.C. Lions.

Wally Buono, the Lions coach and general manager, appeared shaken by the news. Harris served as B.C.'s defensive line coach for Buono's first two years in Vancouver.

"When somebody passes away it's always shocking,'' said Buono, who underwent heart bypass surgery in 2004. "Richard was a good man. Just the fact he's gone is almost discouraging.''

Buono also believes Harris might've actually saved his life during their time together with the Lions.

After B.C. beat Saskatchewan in the 2004 West Division final to advance to the Grey Cup, it was Harris who stopped jubilant Lions players from pouring cold water on their head coach. Buono knew at the time of his heart condition but had not told any of the coaches.

"I believe he did,'' Buono said. "I felt something was going on.

"Richard being as sensitive as he is, he sensed something.''

Saskatchewan Roughriders linebacker Barrin Simpson, who played in Winnipeg for three seasons and was a CFL all-star under Harris, also took to Twitter to express his shock.

"No way, it can't be! To lose a great friend and close friend and a father like figure. I'm deeply sadden by this news," said Simpson.

In 2000, Harris was head coach of the Portland Prowlers of the Indoor Professional Football League. And he won three semi-pro championships as head coach in the Northwest Football League, with the Eastside Express in 1989 and the Pudget Sound Jets in 1994 and 1995.

Harris, a defensive lineman, spent eight seasons in the NFL after being picked fifth overall in the 1971 draft by the Philadelphia Eagles. He was all-rookie that year.

He played three seasons with the Eagles before joining the Chicago Bears for two years. Harris finished his career by playing three seasons with the Seattle Seahawks.

Harris played at Grambling State University under legendary head coach Eddie Robinson.

He is survived by wife Tami and children Kimberly, Chianti, Jennifer and Michael.

Heart attack claims life of Bombers asst. head coach
By: Adam Wazny
Posted: 07/26/2011 3:35 PM


Richard Harris, the longtime defensive line coach with the Winnipeg Blue Bombers, has died. He was 63.

Harris is survived by his wife Tami; their four children, Kimberly, Chianti, Jennifer, Michael; and three grandchildren, Chandler, Keegan-Michael, and Aurora.

Harris suffered a heart attack inside the team complex at Polo Park after the club moved indoors from practice. An ambulance arrived at Canad Inns Stadium shortly after he collapsed, and he was taken to hospital.

Players and office staff peered outside the office doors with concerned faces, some breaking down as the emergency medical staff treated their beloved coach in the ambulance.

"This has struck our entire organization from the top down," Bomber president Jim Bell said in a release. "We are all in a state of shock and first and foremost would like to express our deepest sympathies to his family. The Winnipeg Football Club has lost not only a great coach, but an even better man."

This season marked his sixth season with the Bombers and prior to this year, he was named assistant head coach to Winnipeg head coach Paul LaPolice.

Harris was a popular figure around the organization and in the city. A large man with a famous deep and booming voice, the always friendly Harris would often engage fans at practice, inquiring about their well being and taking the time to listen to the response.

Last season, Harris’ line was one of the best defensive fronts in the CFL. Defensive end Phillip Hunt led the league with 16 sacks, while Odell Willis finished with 11 sacks. Hunt and veteran tackle Doug Brown were named to the CFL all-star team under his watch.

Harris has been a defensive coach in the CFL since 2001, when he joined the B.C. Lions. Harris also coached in Ottawa (2005), spending one season with the Renegades before joining Doug Berry's coaching staff in Winnipeg for the 2006 season.

The Shreveport, Louisiana-native played seven years in the NFL as a defensive end. Drafted by Philadelphia in the first round of the 1971 NFL draft fifth overall, Harris played three seasons with the Eagles and was named to the all-rookie team in his first season (1971).

Harris also saw time on the field with the Chicago Bears (1974-75) and the Seattle Seahawks (1976-77).

Prior to his pro career, Harris was a standout pass rusher at Grambling State University, earning All-American honours in 1970.

Sure the Blue and Gold got off to a bit of a slow start, but once our boy Pierce ran for that TD in the 2nd quarter, we started turning things around. Sorry dai, but the boys from Swaggerville (aka the Bombers' defense) just had to kick things up a notch with our defensive captain, Doug Brown, being forced to miss/sit out of a game for only the 9th time during his entire career.

Not sure if I've mentioned this before, but along with being, as he once put it, "the village elder" of Swaggerville, every Tuesday Blue Bomber's DT Doug Brown also writes a weekly CFL/football-themed column for the local newspaper. I particularly liked what he wrote for this week's column. :thumbsup

Why some people hate 'Swaggerville'
By: Doug Brown | Posted: 08/30/2011 1:00 AM


We are eight games into the 2011 Winnipeg Blue Bomber football season and I've come to notice that not everyone finds the spinoff of "Swaggerville" as amusing and entertaining as I do.

In fact, after studying the population of dissent and disapproval that is out there, I have been able to come up with five plausible reasons why some are turned off by this national phenomenon. If you are not an advocate of "Swaggerville," or just put off by it, it is most likely because of one of these five reasons.

The first is the easiest and most obvious these days. You hate it because you didn't come up with it. Like it or not, Swaggerville has become an independent, marketable entity. It has received unbelievable amounts of national television, print, radio, and Internet exposure, though it has no marketing budget. Its founding members are doing paid appearances on its behalf and people are lining up for their autographs.

"Swaggerville" is selling out of T-shirts, and is being piggy backed by other companies with "Swagger" type products -- like all of the hair product merchandise that was sent to our locker-room last week. It has a Facebook fan page with thousands of members, a rap song has been recorded about it, and it is such a catch phrase on the football team, it even has its own stylistic language rights. My regular abdominal and pushup routine during practice has now been re-named "seven minute swagger abs," and the 300-yard shuttles we often do are obviously now "swagger-shuttles." It is no secret that people are often resentful and or jealous of other people's successes, and "Swaggerville" is a marketing phenom that is no different.

The second reason some people don't like this contagious beacon that began in the defensive secondary some time ago is that it is taking attention away from them. People take offence to "Swaggerville" because it's not about them, they aren't a part of it, and it is receiving huge amounts of press and airtime. One thing that has become very apparent of late is that when players around the CFL were asked their opinions of "Swaggerville," they either hated it and took offence to it, or they had no problem with it.

The more self indulgent types probably took offence to it because it takes away from the attention they are receiving, while many of the others interviewed by TSN, thought of it as amusing and an interesting rallying point for an upstart team.

If you get off a plane in Winnipeg as a visiting team and immediately don sunglasses to mock what some have referred to as a "cartoon" stunt, this is attention seeking behavior that has obviously been generated to fill a void. If we went to Hamilton and pulled out work belts and clipped some hammers to it in reference to "Hammerville," it would be pretty evident that we were feeling left out and in need of more media attention.

Thirdly, I assume some people have an aversion to "Swaggerville" because they don't fully understand how it is being utilized or conceptualized. After all, if you base the idea strictly on its definition, swagger can be interpreted as, "conducting oneself in an arrogant or pompous manner." Or, "to walk with an air of overbearing self-confidence."

While professional football is a game that should be played with a certain degree of swagger, "Swaggerville's" mandate, as defined by founder Jovon Johnson, is more of a buzzword for the defence and a description of the confidence and self belief its members play with. If you haven't been paying attention, the players that ran with this catchphrase do their talking with their actions on the field and usually not in the press and papers before the games.

A fourth aversion to the "swag," is that many people think it is premature to not only name yourself with more than half a season to go, but to give a name to any group or unit that has not been baptized in championship glory. While for the most part I agree with this standpoint, if you look back to the origins of the phrasing, the players did not anoint themselves with this name. From my recollections, it was a coach on this football team a few years back that implored the players to play with a "swagger" on the field, to believe in themselves and perform with the upmost confidence. They just ran with it and the rest is history.

Lastly, if this still does not adequately explain why you are not a fan of the concept or at least find it fun and entertaining, it may be because you are a traditionalist and we don't play in "Swaggerville," we play in Winnipeg and we are the Blue Bombers -- a very storied CFL franchise with 10 league championships, and not a bunch of guys with "swag."

No one on this team would argue with that premise and the swagger is not something designed to take away from the proud legacy of the football club, it is just an enthusiastic spinoff with positive community ramifications and a comical outlet to many others.

Well, sometimes it just wasn't meant to be. Sadly, there will be no joy in Swaggerville. Hard to complain though, as we just got outplayed, plain and simple. Lions played a helluva game, and they've had a helluva season. They turned themselves around from a really shitty start of the season, working their asses off game in and game out. They definitely came here to win it in front of their home crowd, and that's just what they did. Congrats to them and props to the city of Vancouver for doing an awesome job of hosting this weekend's festivities. :cheers

ARGONAUTS ACQUIRE QUARTERBACK RAY FROM ESKIMOS
THE CANADIAN PRESS | 12/12/2011 8:59:35 PM

The Edmonton Eskimos traded away the face of their franchise Monday, gambling that their future is brighter with better Canadian talent and a quarterback who can beat a team with his legs.

The Eskimos sent nine-year veteran Ricky Ray to Toronto for fellow quarterback Steven Jyles, Canadian kicker Grant Shaw and the Argonauts first pick -- No. 2 overall -- in the 2012 CFL Canadian College Draft.

"We're getting younger at quarterback, a mobility component and emphasis on Canadian content," Eskimos GM Eric Tillman said at a news conference at Commonwealth Stadium in Edmonton.

Tillman said it was difficult to deal Ray, but noted the quarterback is 32 years old and Toronto was determined in its pursuit. Tillman added the Argos not only initiated trade talks but twice sweetened the pot, prompting the Eskimos to begin asking some hard questions about their offence.

Tillman said while Ray has made his mark in the CFL with pinpoint accuracy on short-to-medium passes -- Ray has a career completion average exceeding 66 per cent -- he and coach Kavis Reed want to stretch opposing defences more in 2012.

"When (the defence) has to honour the perimeter, it puts pressure on the defensive ends and defensive backs and opens up some inside running lanes," Tillman said. "So from a style standpoint, where we're trying to go in the long term this is a step (in that direction)."

Ray wasn't immediately available for comment. The Argos will officially introduce their newest addition Wednesday morning in Toronto.

"I would like to thank the Edmonton Eskimos and their fans for nine years of good memories and for giving me the opportunity to play for such a good organization and win a couple of championships," Ray said in a statement.

Reed said Ray was "disappointed" to be leaving Edmonton but understood the nature of the deal. Reed added he's onside with Tillman's decision.

"As a coach you always look at the big picture and what's right for this locker-room and this football team," said Reed. "I believe the pieces we'll be getting will in the long term probably make us a better football team."

But it's hard to not feel Toronto got the better of the deal. The Argos certainly got the best player in Ray, who is not only a proven commodity having thrown for over 4,500 yards six times in his career but is also very durable, having missed just six regular-season games over nine CFL seasons.

Burris, Glenn swap teams
By: Staff Writer | Posted: 01/3/2012 1:00 AM

Henry Burris is Hamilton-bound.

The Calgary Stampeders dealt the veteran quarterback to the Hamilton Tiger-Cats on Monday night in a three-player deal, according to league sources requesting anonymity.

In return, the Stampeders receive quarterback Kevin Glenn, an 11-year veteran who spent the last three seasons with Hamilton. They also get offensive lineman Mark Dewit, a Calgary native who played his college football at the University of Calgary, and future considerations.

Officials with the Stampeders offered no comment on the trade and the Ticats did not immediately respond to questions from The Canadian Press. There was also no mention of the deal on Burris’s website.

But Glenn tweeted on Sunday: "NEW & EXCITING THINGS IN MY FUTURE!! CAN’T WAIT" The deal ends months of speculation regarding Burris’s future in Calgary after losing his starting job to backup Drew Tate late last season. But it became crystal clear last week that the six-foot-two, 219-pound Burris’s days in Alberta were numbered after the Stampeders signed Tate to a longterm contract extension.

Calgary finished tied with B.C. and Edmonton for the CFL’s best record at 11-7. But the Stampeders were relegated to third in the West Division after losing the season series to the Lions and Eskimos, then ended the campaign with a 33-19 semifinal loss to the Esks.

The 36-year-old Burris, the CFL’s outstanding player in 2010, was in his second stint with the Stampeders and spent a total of nine seasons there. He is Calgary’s all-time leader in passing yards (32,171), touchdowns (233) and completions (2,167).

Free-agent defensive lineman Rashad Jeanty is back with the CFL's Edmonton Eskimos.

Jeanty, 28, started his pro career with the Eskimos in 2003 and won two Grey Cups with Edmonton over three seasons.

The Miami native departed for the NFL's Cincinnati Bengals following the Eskimos' 2005 Grey Cup win.

"It's great to welcome Rashad back to the Eskimos," Eskimo general manager Eric Tillman said Monday in a news release.

"He left as a champion after the 2005 Grey Cup and he's eager to help us return to that elite level.

In our conversations, we talked about how much winning two championships in Edmonton meant to him, and about his deep gratitude to Paul Jones (Eskimo assistant general manager) who brought him to the CFL as a 19-year-old kid back in 2003."

He was a devastating blocker who routinely drove opposing defenders into the ground. But Warren Hudson will also be remembered as someone who never kicked a fellow player when he was down.

 Hudson, who was named the top Canadian in the 1990 Grey Cup, died Thursday of brain cancer. He was 49.

 "Warren was so competitive, so driven yet didn't have an ego," said Don Moen, a former teammate of Hudson's with the Toronto Argonauts. "He was the kind of guy who would run over someone, then go over and help him up.

 "He's probably the greatest person I've ever known. Warren and his family never ceased to amaze me, they never once asked 'Why?"'

 Moen routinely overcame injury to appear in a club-record 222 games over 13 seasons with the Argos. But he said it was Hudson who was the epitome of toughness and class, on and off the football field. (http://www.sportsnet.ca/football/cfl/2012/02/16/warren_hudson_brain_cancer/)

and just hours ago...RIP Cal Murphy

Cal Murphy, a former coach of the Lions and member of the Canadian Football Hall of Fame who had an uncanny work ethic and an ability to scout talent that matched, died Saturday in Regina, He was 79.

The CFL legend had been in a Regina hospital for the past week, and it was not the first time of such an occurance. He had undergone numerous heart procedures over the years only to recover each time, and had been working in the game he loved almost until his passing.

Murphy and Wally Buono are the only Canadian-raised coaches to win a Grey Cup. His most recent public appearance in Vancouver was in 2010 at the Orange Helmet Awards in which he was honoured with a lifetime achievement award two weeks after suffering congestive heart failure.

Murphy was a press box regular at Mosiac Stadium in Regina serving in his capacity as a regional scout for the NFL’s Indianapolis Colts, which this winter again signed two CFL standouts, Justin Hickman of Hamilton and Jerrell Freeman of the Saskatchewan Roughriders.

“It’s not a full-time job but it keeps me busy,” Murphy told The Province’s Tony Gallagher in an interview just prior to the 99th Grey Cup in Vancouver last year. “You know when I finished coaching I came home and was cleaning the blinds and it was driving me crazy and I said to my wife, I hate doing this’. I just belong in the game, I guess.” (http://blogs.theprovince.com/2012/02/18/cfl-legend-cal-murphy-passes/)

For so long, he was a huge part of, if not THE core of the Blue Bomber organization. He played a huge role in landing Peg Sheety our first Grey Cup hosting gig in 1991.  What a lot of people don't know is that Mr. Murphy was actually born in and lived part of his childhood in Winnipeg. Regardless of where he went and who he worked for, 'Peggers always have (and always will) considered him to be "one of us".


R.I.P. Mr. Murphy.

Edmonton Eskimos
ESKS.com Staff

Cal Murphy, legendary CFL coach, member of the Canadian Football Hall of Fame and ex-Edmonton Eskimo assistant coach, died Saturday in Regina following a lengthy illness.

During his long and distinguished career, Murphy was an assistant during the Esks’ Five in a Row dynasty (1978 – 1982). That success would lead the Winnipeg born Murphy to being named G.M. and Head Coach of his hometown Blue Bombers in 1983. He won back to back CFL Coach of the Year awards in 1983 and ’84 and presided over the most successful era in that franchise’s history.

Former Eskimo Head Coach, GM and President Hugh Campbell says, "Cal's influence on the CFL covers the full scope of football in Canada.  He made sure we stuck with our Canadian rules and continually stood up for our League.  On a personal note, I learned a great deal from my friend, Cal, about football and life.  His big personality was a treasure." 

Murphy finished up his coaching career with Saskatchewan (1997 – 1999) before taking a scouting job with Indianapolis Colts

Still at Canad Inns in August?
Blue 'Plan B' could see multiple games in old stadium
By: Paul Wiecek | Posted: 03/23/2012 1:00 AM


The front office of the Winnipeg Football Club said publicly for the first time Thursday something they had maintained was unthinkable less than two months ago -- the Blue Bombers could be playing at old Canad Inns Stadium deep into the 2012 CFL season due to construction delays on the new stadium at the University of Manitoba.

Bombers CEO Garth Buchko -- who less than two months ago categorically ruled out the Bombers playing anywhere this year other than their new Investors Group Field -- conceded with continuing uncertainty surrounding a completion date on the new stadium, team management has a contingency plan that could see the club playing at Canad Inns Stadium into August.

:doh:

Now personally, if they do end up needing to delay the opening of the new stadium, I'm going to wait until it opens before I try to get tickets to attend a game. The last game I attended at the old stadium was the victory the Bombers had that sent us to last year's Grey Cup. THAT is what I want my final memories of the stadium to be.

Blue send sackmaster packing
Labelled a distraction, Willis traded to Saskatchewan
By: Adam Wazny | Posted: 03/23/2012 1:00 AM


The self-appointed Mayor of Swaggerville no longer had the votes in Winnipeg.

After months of speculation that Odell Willis was unhappy with the team, the Blue Bombers finally traded the enigmatic defensive end to the Saskatchewan Roughriders Thursday afternoon.

The Bombers received the Riders second-round pick (8th overall) and fourth round pick (23rd overall) in the 2012 CFL draft. Winnipeg also sent a fifth round pick to the Riders in the 2013 draft, while the Bombers stand to gain another pick in the '13 draft, on the condition Willis signs a contract extension with Saskatchewan.

Winnipeg Blue Bombers cheerleaders go co-ed for 2012 season
By: The Canadian Press | Posted: 03/27/2012 10:50 AM

WINNIPEG - The Winnipeg Blue Bombers are changing their familiar cheerleader squad as they plan the move into a new stadium sometime later this year.

The team announced Tuesday that the Blue Lightning will go co-ed and add athletic stunts to their on-field routines.

They've drafted coaches from the University of Manitoba Bison cheer squad to help make the transition.

The Bombers' new home, Investors Group Field, is located on the campus of the province's largest university.

Tryouts for the new-look squad will take place April 22.

Exactly when the Bombers will play at their new stadium remains up in the air due to construction delays and likely won't be known until after May 1.

Bomber fans will pick four greats to adorn new stadium's gates
By: Paul Wiecek | Posted: 03/28/2012 1:00 AM

The Winnipeg Blue Bombers have turned over the task of customizing the exterior of new Investors Group Field to their fans.

The club revealed Tuesday that they will pay tribute to four former Bomber greats with two-storey high signs marking each of the four main gates at the new stadium going up on the grounds of the University of Manitoba.

Jeffrey Bannon, the Bombers manager of brand development, said internal discussions to pick which former Bomber greats would get honoured produced such a long list of good choices that the club decided to simply turn the process over to fans.

Fans can vote from a list of 20 nominees posted on the Bombers website -- www.bluebombers.com (http://www.bluebombers.com)

"As we were going through who should be on the list of four, we found that everyone seemed to have a different list," said Bannon. "It became a great water cooler discussions and so we finally decided we don't have the right to decide -- let's let the fans decide.

"We made a list of 10 and decided, no, not good enough. So then it was 12, 14 and finally we decided on a list of 20 names people can choose from."

Bannon said the banners -- which will measure about 20-feet by 8-feet and feature likenesses of each player along with the Investors Group logo and gate number -- will be permanent installations at each gate and will come to represent familiar landmarks for fans to meet up on game day.

"People will be like, 'I'll meet you at Milt (Stegall) or I'll meet you at Joe (Poplawski). It will be a great place for fans to stop."

Bannon said he got the idea from a visit to the new MetLife Stadium in New York, where each of the gates is branded by a corporate sponsor. "They didn't pay homage to their history because it's kind of tough since both the Giants and Jets play there," said Bannon. "But it's different here and we have the opportunity to pay homage to such great alumni. We have tons of hall-of-famers that we can pay tribute to."

Fans can vote for up to four players at a time and as often as once a day. Only former players made the list of nominees, and former coaches like Bud Grant and Cal Murphy are conspicuous by their absence.

The 20 nominees are: Greg Battle, Dieter Brock, Doug Brown, Bob Cameron, Tom Clements, Matt Dunigan, Rod Hill, Rick House, Jack Jacobs, Gerry James, Khari Jones, Tyrone Jones, Leo Lewis, James Murphy, Ken Ploen, Joe Poplawski, Willard Reaves, Charlie Roberts, Milt Stegall and Chris Walby.

The CFL has decided to go with a new/re-engineered jersey design for all teams starting with this upcoming season. East division teams unveiled theirs today, while the West division teams will do theirs tomorrow.

Here's what the Blue Bombers will be sporting this year:

Blue Bombers unveil new jerseys
2012-05-01

The Winnipeg Blue Bombers unveiled their new jerseys today, in conjunction with a league-wide initiative in which all eight CFL teams have reengineered Reebok jerseys for the 2012 season.

In an effort to stay true to the Blue and Gold history, the Blue Bombers are dropping their white away jerseys in favour of a new gold jersey that will be worn during all away games.

“We are very excited about the new look of our team and we know our fans will be too,” said President and CEO Garth Buchko.  “There has been a lot of detailing and planning by our organization to come up with this new look and we are very proud of the end result.”

Along with the colour change, the new jersey also has increased elasticity, improved resiliency and moisture wicking technology which will be beneficial to all players that sport them on the field.

Fans can purchase the jerseys now at the Bomber Store. (http://store.bluebombers.com)
FULL ARTICLE LINK: http://www.bluebombers.com/article/blue-bombers-unveil-new-jerseys (http://www.bluebombers.com/article/blue-bombers-unveil-new-jerseys)


I'm guessing the popularity of the gold retro jerseys that we've had over the past few seasons was a big factor in the team's decision to get rid of the white jersey for away games.  It's a good thing then that they've also got different pants for home and away, so that they don't have an "all gold, all the time" look.


EDIT: All the new jerseys can be seen on the CFL's official website (or rather, once they've all been unveiled they will be :P ).

Blue Bombers fire head coach Paul LaPolice
The Canadian Press
Posted: Aug 25, 2012 2:48 PM ET | Last Updated: Aug 25, 2012 3:43 PM ET


Paul LaPolice has paid the price for the Winnipeg Blue Bombers' losing season.

The CFL team fired its head coach on Saturday and replaced him with defensive co-ordinator Tim Burke.

The announcement comes a day after the Blue Bombers dropped 20-17 decision at home to the B.C. Lions to fall to 2-6 on the season, last in the East Division.

LaPolice was in his third season in Winnipeg and leaves the team with a 16-28 record.

After taking over for the fired Mike Kelly after the 2009 season, the Bombers struggled to a league-low 4-14 record in 2010.

But Winnipeg rebounded in a big way the next year, winning the East Division with a 10-8 mark before losing 34-23 to the B.C. Lions in the 2011 Grey Cup final.

Just months after LaPolice was given a two-year contract extension, the Bombers stumbled out of the gates this season and went 0-4. Winnipeg didn't register its first win until a 23-22 home victory against the Edmonton Eskimos on July 26.

LaPolice came to Winnipeg after three season in Saskatchewan, first as a receivers coach, then as offensive co-ordinator as the Riders went to the 2009 Grey Cup finals.

He became Winnipeg's 28th head coach when he was hired Feb. 5, 2010.

"This was an extremely difficult decision to make especially when dealing with the kind of quality individual as Paul is," Blue Bombers vice-president and general manager Joe Mack said in a statement. "As the season has progressed, and looking back on how we struggled throughout the second half of the year in 2011, we have become increasingly concerned with the direction of our club and felt this was in the best interest of our entire organization."
FULL ARTICLE LINK - http://www.cbc.ca/sports/football/cfl/story/2012/08/25/sp-cfl-winnipeg-blue-bombers-paul-lapolice-fired.html (http://www.cbc.ca/sports/football/cfl/story/2012/08/25/sp-cfl-winnipeg-blue-bombers-paul-lapolice-fired.html)

If anyone, it should be Joe Mack's ass that's on the line right now. We lost a GOOD chunk of our experienced, core players over the off-season, either because Mack traded them or because he chose to NOT try hard enough to keep them.  Seriously, how the fuck does he and the team's board of governors expect LaPolice to keep coaching a 1st place, competitive team (like we had last year) when 20-50% of our starting lineup has less than 2 full season's worth of experience?  He can only do his best with what he's been given.  LaPolice is a good coach, but you can't expect him (or any coach, for that matter), to be able to match what we did last season when the make-up of the team has been changed so radically. 

You need good, quality ingredients, put together and cooked the proper way to make a good, tasty dish. Similarly, in order to make/have a strong, winning team you need a good set of experienced players who know the game and who have the knowledge/instincts of what to do in the heat of the moment of a game.  Joe Mack and the management have NOT given that to LaPolice this season, and now they're firing him because he hasn't been able to get results with what he HAS been given? Give...me...a...muthafuckin...break. No way in hell that he deserves getting shafted like this.

Ok, ok, ok...I understand that the Bombers' new, interim head coach, Tim Burke, is a defensive specialist (hell, he was promoted to his current position after having done well as our defensive coach for the past couple of seasons). I also understand that with this being Burke's first actual head coaching position, he's still a "rookie" at it, so to speak.  HOWEVER, even a defensive coach/specialist must know that scoring points usually helps to win football games and that, if an opportunity to score presents itself, one should...I dunno...try to take advantage of it?

So why is it that, in the final 30 seconds of today's Banjo Bowl match between the Bombers and Roughriders, when, with a slim 1 point lead, the Bomber offense had possession of the football within 30-35 yards of the opposing goal line WHICH, by the way, was within the FG range of our kicker, WHY did our new, rookie coach, Mr. Tim Burke, decide to PUNT the football away instead of, I dunno....GOING FOR THE FUCKIN' GUARANTEED 3 POINTS THAT THE FIELD GOAL WOULD HAVE GIVEN US?!?!??! :angry: :angry: :angry: :angry: :angry: :angry: :angry: :angry: :angry: :angry: :angry: :angry: :angry: :angry: :angry: :angry: :angry:

Going for a field goal would have eaten up the exact same amount of time on the clock that punting it used up, AND it would have given us a 4-point lead, which would have forced the Roughriders to HAVE to try to, within the last 20-odd seconds in the game, march the football ALL THE WAY to our endzone for a touchdown in order to win the game. But NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO...because we PUNTED the ball, all the 'Riders had to do was move the football the equivalent of about HALF of the length of the field to be able to get within the FG range of THEIR kicker, who subsequently SCORED a field goal to win the game for them with FOUR FUCKIN' SECONDS LEFT IN THE GAME!!!
 :mon mad: :shilivid: :mon mad: :shilivid: :mon mad: :shilivid: :mon mad: :shilivid: :mon mad: :shilivid: :mon mad: :shilivid: :mon mad: :shilivid: :mon mad: :shilivid: :mon mad: :shilivid: :mon mad: :shilivid: :mon mad:

Well, from a Grey Cup appearance last year to finishing in the league's basement this year, and even though there's still one game left, the shit show that was the Bombers' 2012 season is, for all intents and purposes, done. Only potentially good to come out of this finish is that we'll have first crack at what is said to be a good group of new, upcoming players at the next draft.

At least the new stadium appears to be coming along nicely.

TIGER-CATS INTRODUCE AUSTIN AS TEAM'S HEAD COACH AND GM
THE CANADIAN PRESS | 12/17/2012 3:55:01 PM


HAMILTON, Ont. -- Kent Austin is returning to the CFL.

The Hamilton Tiger-Cats have hired Austin to be the club's head coach and head of the CFL team's football operations. The team announced the hiring on Monday.

Austin takes over as head coach from George Cortez, who was fired last week after compiling a 6-12 record in his first season with Hamilton.

The Ticats are also in need of a GM with incumbent Bob O'Billovich mulling over an offer to remain with the Hamilton franchise as a consultant.

Austin won a Grey Cup as the Saskatchewan Roughriders' head coach in 2007. He served as head coach of Cornell University last season.

"I am honoured to join the Hamilton Tiger-Cats organization," Austin said in a statement. "There are a lot of reasons to be excited about this opportunity, namely the strong ownership in place, a very passionate group of fans behind us and the chance for immediate success. I can't wait to begin working on our goal of bringing another Grey Cup championship to the city of Hamilton."

The 49-year-old Austin also won a Grey Cup in 2004 as the Toronto Argonauts offensive co-ordinator and earned championship rings as a player with Saskatchewan in 1989 and B.C. in '94.

He is one of only four CFL quarterbacks to pass for more than 6,000 yards in a single season, throwing for 6,225 yards in '92 with Saskatchewan.

Austin entered the coaching ranks in 2003 as a quarterback coach with the Ottawa Renegades. The following season he joined the Argos and helped the team capture the Grey Cup.

He was fired by the Argos in the 2006 season, reportedly in part for not fully utilizing running back Ricky Williams, who played that year in Toronto while under suspension by the NFL for violating its drug policy.

Austin resurfaced quickly, being hired as Saskatchewan's head coach for the 2007 season. He helped guide the Roughriders to a 23-19 Grey Cup win over Winnipeg at Rogers Centre, becoming the first head coach to win a championship with the same team he did so as a quarterback.

That earned Austin the CFL's coach of the year award that year.

On Jan. 16, 2008, Austin became the offensive co-ordinator at the University of Mississippi, his alma mater. Two years later, he accepted the head coaching job at Cornell University and is coming off a season where his team posted a 4-6 record.

Over three seasons at Cornell, Austin compiled an 11-19 record.

Austin takes over a Hamilton team that featured one of the CFL's top offences under Cortez, but with a struggling defence that contributed mightily to the Ticats missing the playoffs.

REPORT: OTTAWA TEAM TO BE CALLED REDBLACKS; NAME, LOGO LEAKED
TSN Staff | 5/30/2013 8:26:41 PM

Ottawa's new CFL team reportedly has a name.

The team, which begins play in 2014, will be called the RedBlacks, according to a sports logo website. The name and logo leaked ahead of a June 8 ceremony planned to unveil both.

The team sent out a clarification press release in response to the online posting.

"I'm thrilled by the fact that there's so much advance interest in our team nickname and logo," said Jeff Hunt, President of the sports division of the football team's  parent company, Ottawa Sports and Entertainment Group.  "We've organized a spectacular fan event for the official unveiling and I'm looking forward to seeing our PRN holders (reserved season tickets) and their friends on June 8th.  I don't think it would be appropriate for me to comment any further on the logo or nickname until then."

The RedBlacks was long rumoured to be the name of the team and was presented to focus groups in January along with four others. The other names presented were the Nationals, Rush, Voyageurs, and Raftsmen.

General manager Marcel Desjardins and the Ottawa franchise recently named Brock Sunderland the team's assistant GM.

Along with Desjardins, CFL Commissioner Mark Cohon, Ottawa Mayor Jim Watson, and CFL legends Russ Jackson and Tony Gabriel are expected to be at the unveiling in June.

Ottawa CFL Team Will Be The RedBlacks; Logos Here
Written By: Chris Creamer | Thursday, May 30, 2013

The new Ottawa CFL team set to begin play in next year’s 2014 season will be known as the Ottawa RedBlacks according to recent trademark filings made by the ownership group.

Registered publicly with the Canadian Intellectual Property Office on May 21, 2013 the filings not only reveal the name the team will be using but also show the new logos the club will use in their inaugural CFL season.  The logos appearing in the registration are in greyscale, we’ve colourized them based on the obviously obvious colour scheme:

(http://picroda.jphip.com/misc/jphip06396.jpg)

The main feature of the new logo, like the original Ottawa Rough Riders is a bold white ‘R’, the R is featured inside what’s described in the trademark filing as a circular saw blade – perhaps a nod to the history of logging in the Ottawa Valley during the 19th century.  Below the circular saw blade is the team name, the “Red” part in red, the “Blacks” part in black.

A french logo was also created, the logo remains the same but with the team name shown as Rouge et Noir instead:
(http://picroda.jphip.com/misc/jphip06397.jpg)

Two wordmark logos were also registered:

The Ottawa CFL team plans on announcing their new name officially on June 8th.  The names they had been considering were Nationals, RedBlacks, Rush, Voyageurs, and Raftsmen.

Act surprised, I guess.

I had heard rumors that, despite the fact that research had indicated that "RedBlacks" was not received well by local fans, the management had still been favoring/pushing for this name out of the 5 final choices that they had. Personally, I like the sound of "Ottawa Rush" better.

Bombers tab Goltz as #1 QB; Pierce relegated to backup
CFL.ca Staff
Posted: August 01, 2013 11:00 AM | Updated: August 01, 2013 05:34 PM


WINNIPEG -- One game is apparently all Tim Burke needed to see from Justin Goltz.

Thursday, the Winnipeg Blue Bombers announced that Goltz, 25, will be the team's starting quarterback for the remainder of the season. Incumbent Buck Pierce has been moved to No. 3 on the depth chart behind Max Hall and will assist offensive coordinator Gary Crowton in developing the young quarterbacks.

The announcement comes less than a week after Goltz made his first career start, a loss to the Calgary Stampeders that saw him throw for 194 yards, two touchdowns and one interception.

Pierce was sidelined with an abdominal injury that he suffered in Week 4.

CFL.ca columnist Bob Irving was at Bombers practice when Burke made the announcement.

Bob Irving's Twitter
Burke says buck reacted positively to the decision but he's not sure how he feels deep down inside

Goltz will now shift his attention towards what will be his second career start on Monday against Travis Lulay and the BC Lions.

"We just feel like we have a desire and a need to develop the quarterbacks for the future of the organization," head coach Tim Burke told reporters. "We want to have continuity with our offence and we feel like Justin will give us a better chance for week in and week out continuity.

"We just feel like he (Goltz) is performing right around the same level, maybe just slightly better than Buck is performing and feel like he's got a lot of upside potential. We just feel he can keep getting better week after week and we feel that's going to be the case with Max as well."

Alouettes dismiss Hawkins, Popp to take over
CFL.ca Staff
Posted: August 01, 2013 08:29 AM | Updated: August 01, 2013 03:35 PM


MONTREAL -- The Montreal Alouettes announced on Thursday that they have relieved Head Coach Dan Hawkins of his duties. Owner Bob Wetenhall has asked General Manager Jim Popp to assume the head-coaching role in addition to his other responsibilities.

"Jim is the person most responsible for the success we have had over all these years," explained Wetenhall.

"I feel confident that he is the best person to coach our team at this time and I am very appreciative of him being willing to make this additional contribution to our franchise. He has the respect of our players as well as mine."

Hired Feb. 19 in place of the departed Marc Trestman, Hawkins' short tenure as head coach in Montreal ends just five weeks into the 2013 season. During that span, the Alouettes were able to record just two wins.

The usually potent Montreal offence currently sits fourth in the league in points scored with 122, last in touchdowns, and most surprisingly last in net passing yards.

Quarterback Anthony Calvillo is on pace to record 3,726 passing yards, which would mark his lowest total since 2007, one year before Trestman arrived.

"It does come as a surprise to me in some ways, yet, there were some warning signs," said CFL.ca's Rick Moffat.

"A veteran team is sometimes tougher to get to buy in. Maybe Hawkins didn't come in with the same type of humility that Marc Trestman did in 2008. Maybe Dan Hawkins tried to remake this team too fast and too much," he added.

Popp takes over as head coach for the third time, having replaced Rod Rust in 2001 and Don Matthews in 2006. He stayed on in the same role in 2007, leading the Als to an 8-10 record.

In total, Popp has a 10-13 regular season record and a 1-3 playoff record as a head coach.

It was the team's only losing record since it returned to Montreal after a 10-year hiatus in 1996. Popp has been general manager all of that time.

It was the second time in a row Montreal hired a coach with no CFL experience.

At his press conference on Thursday afternoon, Popp announced that Senior Advisor to the Head Coach Doug Berry will take over the team's offence. Former offensive coordinator Mike Miller will remain with the team in a reduced role.

"I wouldn't be surprised to see Mike Miller, Doug Berry and (Anthony Calvillo) to say 'Okay, let's make this right. We have too many weapons for us not to be tearing it up'."

As a result of Miller's reduced role, Anthony Calvillo will be a lot more involved in offensive play calling and strategy.

Popp also added that the team will have a new head coach, but did not specify when that would occur.

More to come...

Bombers dismiss Joe Mack; Miller replaces Buchko as CEO
Posted: August 08, 2013 11:00 AM | Updated: August 09, 2013 11:13 AM
CFL.ca Staff


WINNIPEG -- The Winnipeg Blue Bombers announced today that they have dismissed General Manager Joe Mack of his duties.  The club also announced that Garth Buchko will no longer serve as CEO and will be replaced by Blue Bombers alumnus Wade Miller.

Mack was originally hired by the Bombers in January of 2010.  In 2011, Mack's Blue Bombers enjoyed their best season under his tenure, finishing in first place in the East and earning a berth in the Grey Cup vs. BC.  The Bombers missed the playoffs last season and were 21-39 during Mack's time at the helm.

Moving forward, one of Miller's most immediate tasks will be to hold discussions with both Assistant GM Kyle Walters and Head Coach Tim Burke to determine the critical next steps in football operations.

“Job one for me is football and all the hard work that will be required to strengthen our reputation and turn this organization into a competitive force whose traditions have long been such a critical part of the fabric of our community,” said Miller in a statement.

Miller, meanwhile, appeared in 167 career games over 11 seasons with Winnipeg after being selected in the fourth round of the 1995 CFL draft by the club. Twice an East Division all-star, Miller is the franchise leader in special-teams tackles with 184 and twice led the league in that category.

He wasted no time making hard decisions in his new role as it was his decision to relieve Mack of his duties.

"I'm not afraid to prove myself and let my results speak for myself,'' Miller told reporters. "I know the challenges that lie ahead, but I'm comfortable in growing a business and tackling everything that comes at me.''

Admittedly, a lot of (dissatisfied) Bomber fans have been calling for Mack to get fired for a couple of years, so other than the fact that they're doing this now instead of waiting until the off-season (on the slim chance that the team is able to turn it's luck around) this isn't a complete surprise.

Even though we're not even halfway through the season, I'm pretty much at the point where I'm betting that this season's going to be a wash for Peg Sheety's Blue and Gold. I want to be positive and believe that they can turn the rest of the year around, but it's hard to do that when they go into a game and suck more than a vacuum cleaner running non-stop.

And less than an hour after getting their first home win ever at the new stadium, the Bombers announce that they've done what the previous GM (Joe Mack) refused/was too scared to do.....trade Buck Pierce.

Buono: 'Buck is a proven veteran quarterback'

WINNIPEG -- Less than two hours after defeating the Saskatchewan Roughriders, the Winnipeg Blue Bombers completed a blockbuster trade, sending Buck Pierce to the BC Lions in exchange for Canadian receiver Akeem Foster.

"Buck has been a true warrior and a consummate professional during his time Winnipeg and we sincerely thank him for his four years of service to our organization,” said Acting General Manager, Kyle Walters.

“In Akeem, we are getting a veteran Canadian receiver who, at age 26, is still entering the prime of his career.  His presence immediately helps upgrade our non-import talent on our roster.”

Foster was selected by the BC Lions in the fourth round (24th overall) of the 2010 CFL Draft and became a mainstay in the Lions’ receiving corps over the next two seasons, recording 61 receptions for 949 yards and nine touchdowns in 32 starts.

Over the course of his career, Foster has dressed for 43 games and won a Grey Cup championship with the Lions in 2011, catching one pass for 12 yards in the victory.  His finest game came on September 2/11 when he hauled in eight passes for 144 yards and took home the league’s Canadian Player of the Week honours.

Pierce signed with the Blue Bombers in April of 2010 and made 31 starts over four seasons, completing 486 passes for 6,320 yards and 25 touchdowns against 31 interceptions.

“We are heading into a critical part of our schedule and we need to improve significantly as a football team,” said VP of football operations and GM Wally Buono. “Buck is a proven veteran quarterback, an accomplished starter and a leader who has taken his teams into the playoffs and to a championship game. He will also give us a needed veteran presence in support of Travis Lulay.”

Fuckin' hell, this goes BEYOND being a shitshow. Right now the Bombers are playing so brutally, the only good thing they've got going is the Cheerleading team.

On the bright side, at least what's left of the crowd here at Investor's Group Field is getting a chance to cheer for Buck Pierce again...as he plays on the opposing team.

WADE MILLER NAMED PRESIDENT & CEO OF WINNIPEG FOOTBALL CLUB
Tuesday, November 12th, 2013

The Board of Directors today announced the appointment of Wade Miller as the President and CEO of the Winnipeg Football Club, effective immediately.

Since his appointment as Acting CEO on August 9, 2013, Board Chair, Brock Bulbuck, said Miller has proven himself to be a strong, progressive leader with the right combination of football and business experience to succeed in this important role.

“What we have seen in Wade since he became Acting CEO,” said Bulbuck, “is a decisive, solution-oriented leader who isn’t afraid to roll up his sleeves and get down to the hard work of turning the Club around.  We have seen that from the very first day he was appointed and we have every confidence that he will continue to make the kind of change that will position us with a competitive team and successful business office well into the future.”

Bulbuck also credited Miller for being a team player both inside and outside the Club.

“Wade was instrumental in securing the support of both the City and Province as part of the WFC’s recent bid to land either a 2015 or 2016 Grey Cup. As he moves forward, we know he’ll also strengthen relationships with fans, alumni, sponsors and the community-at-large and we look forward to seeing him in action in the years to come.”

In accepting the permanent appointment, Miller said he appreciates the support of the Board and is honoured to serve and lead an organization that has long been such an important part of his life – first as a fan, then a player and more recently as a member of the Blue Bombers’ Alumni, a season ticket holder and corporate sponsor.

“This Club is in my blood,” said Miller, “and I won’t rest until I set things right with fans and that means putting a competitive product back on the field that is capable, in the years ahead, of restoring the pride in this once storied franchise. That is what we owe our fans and that is what I’m 100 per cent committed to doing.”

Miller is a Winnipeg Blue Bomber Hall of Famer, a successful business executive and a long-serving community leader.

Now all they have to do is actually decide whether or not to keep our coaching staff and/or what player moves we need to make in the off-season to be competitive next year (given the disaster of a season that we had this year, many fans here are calling for change and likely would have a hissy fit if nothing happened).

So both the Eskies and Bombers will have new, rookie head coaches next season (and on top of that, both guys are coming from the Argos). Guess that means we can look forward to at least another season or two of "rebuilding".

EDMONTON -- Chris Jones has been named head coach of the Edmonton Eskimo Football Club.

Jones joins the Green and Gold after spending the last two seasons as the defensive coordinator, assistant head coach and assistant general manager of the Toronto Argonauts.

Jones replaces former head coach Kavis Reed, who was dismissed by the Eskimos on Nov. 4.

“Chris Jones has paid his dues in the Canadian Football League and has earned this opportunity.  His commitment to the league and record of success is impressive. I look forward to working with him,” said Eskimos General Manager Ed Hervey in a statement.

Jones began his college coaching career as a graduate assistant at Tennessee Tech University in 1995 and spent seven years in the NCAA before entering the CFL.

He has been to post-season in each of his 12 years in the league, including seven Division Finals and six Grey Cup appearances with Montreal, Calgary and Toronto, winning in 2002, 2008 and 2012.

O'Shea named Winnipeg Blue Bombers head coach
Posted: December 04, 2013 01:30 PM
Updated: December 04, 2013 01:32 PM
CFL.ca Staff


WINNIPEG -- Mike O'Shea is the new head coach of the Winnipeg Blue Bombers.

O'Shea, 43, becomes the 29th head coach in Blue Bombers franchise history. The announcement comes three weeks after the team relieved former head coach Tim Burke of his duties.

"Mike knows what it takes to win in this league, and he has done that as both a player and as a coach,'' GM Kyle Walters said in a statement. "He is highly respected by his peers, and someone we feel is the right fit for what we are trying to build here. We're thrilled to have Coach O'Shea on board.''

The 43-year-old O'Shea, who becomes Winnipeg's 30th head coach, is the second Argo assistant to leave in the off-season. Defensive co-ordinator Chris Jones was named head coach of the Edmonton Eskimos last week.

"This is truly an honour to take over as head coach for such a historic franchise and one of the landmarks of Canadian football,'' O'Shea said in a statement. "The organization, our fans, the city and province deserve a winner, and I assure you we will do everything in our power to make all of those people proud.''

The North Bay, Ont. native arrives in Winnipeg after spending the last four seasons with the Toronto Argonauts as their Special Teams Coordinator.

While heading the Argonauts' special teams he helped Chad Owens develop into one of the premier kick returners in the CFL.  In 2010, Owens was named the league's Most Outstanding Special Teams Player and earned Most Outstanding Player honours in 2012 while under O'Shea.

O’Shea played 16 CFL seasons, including 12 with the Argonauts and four with the Hamilton Tiger-Cats, winning three Grey Cup championships (1996-1997, 2004) with Toronto in the process. 

He also won one championship while on the Argonauts' coaching staff in 2012.

Au Revoir AC: Legendary Calvillo announces retirement
Posted: January 21, 2014 11:00 AM
Updated: January 21, 2014 12:24 PM
CFL.ca Staff


MONTREAL -- After a Hall of Fame career that spanned 20 seasons, more than 79,000 yards and countless records, Montreal Alouettes quarterback Anthony Calvillo announced his retirement from professional football Tuesday.

The longtime face of the franchise and five-time CFL All-Star was named the CFL's Most Outstanding Player on three separate occasions over the course of his career and holds league records of 79,816 passing yards, 455 touchdown passes, 5,892 completions and 9,437 pass attempts.

“It has been quite a ride! As a kid growing up in California, I never thought that it would be possible to play professional football for 20 years in a country and a city that I knew nothing of,” explained Calvillo, who resides in Montreal with his wife Alexia and two daughters Olivia and Athena. “I will forever be thankful to our owner Bob Wetenhall and General Manager Jim Popp for allowing this franchise to have all the success that we have had over the years.

The city of Montreal and all the great Alouettes fans across the Province of Quebec have embraced me and that feeling is mutual.”

Calvillo broke into the CFL with the Las Vegas Posse in 1994 and spent the following three seasons with the Hamilton Tiger-Cats before rising to stardom after joining the Montreal Alouettes in 1998. Serving as quarterback Tracy Ham's understudy for two seasons, Calvillo took over as the starting pivot in 2000 on his way to winning three Grey Cups with Montreal in 2002, 2009, and in 2010. He was also named the 2002 Grey Cup Most Outstanding Player.

"My family has been privileged to be associated with Anthony over all these years," said Alouettes owner Bob Wetenhall. “We wish him well and are looking ahead to our continuing engagement.”

Calvillo, who was presented with the Key to the City at the end of the 2011 season, led the Alouettes to eight Grey Cup tilts and owns several championship records for most pass completions (179), passing yards (2,470) and touchdown passes thrown.

“Today a hero to many steps to the side, not to be forgotten but to be cherished and respected for years to come. Anthony, you have earned your stripes,” added Alouettes General Manager and Head Coach Jim Popp. “I, first and foremost, want to thank you for being a true gentleman and professional. Secondly, for inspiring us all with your courage and determination. And thirdly, for being such a great leader on and off the field.

Your will to help and give has made us all better people, and the Alouettes a better family. I wish you, Alexia, Athena, and Olivia many years of good health, happiness, and that memorable walk off into the sunset as you all reflect on what an outstanding career you have had and all that you have given to your family and work."

The veteran pivot became pro football’s all-time passing leader in spectacular fashion at Percival Molson Stadium against the Toronto Argonauts on October 10, 2011, following a 50-yard touchdown strike to Jamel Richardson.

“On behalf of the organization, I want to thank Anthony for his great contributions to our team. Not only for what he has done on the field but in the community as well. Anthony was, and always will be a prestigious ambassador for the Alouettes,” declared team President and CEO, Mark Weightman.

In 2012, Calvillo became the first QB in league history to reach the 5,000-plus passing yards mark seven times over his brilliant career. He also threw for over 300 yards in eight-straight games, breaking Doug Flutie's single-season CFL record of seven, set in 1991 with the B.C. Lions. That season, Calvillo deservingly earned his tenth nomination as the team's Most Outstanding Player.

"I would like to thank Anthony and Alexia for their contribution to the Alouettes organization and to the Montreal community throughout the years. I look forward to a continued association and friendship with Anthony and his family for many years to come," said Alouettes Chairman, Paul Harris.

Calvillo is one of the Alouettes’ most active members in the community, particularly with Cedars Cancer Institute.

Canadian Football League Commissioner Mark Cohon said, "Anthony Calvillo is more than one of the greatest quarterbacks to ever play the game. He is one of the most remarkable people to ever grace our league.
 
We know he has rewritten the record books, completing passes, throwing touchdowns, and leading teams to wins and championships, amassing a legacy as a player that is second to none. What we can't measure is how many lives he has inspired with his example of courage and perseverance. For all of his touchdown drives and comeback victories, his greatest triumphs have been over poverty and circumstance, disappointment and discouragement, injury and illness.
 
He has shown us what it takes to be a winner on the field. Along the way, he taught us much about what it means to be a true teammate, a loving father and a devoted husband.
 
All of us will miss AC the player. He is a singular talent.  But Canadians from coast to coast, and football fans beyond our borders, have also come to know Anthony the person. And that is why we have every confidence that he will continue to excel, in his career after football and in his life, most of all."

Montreal's Man: Als ink receiver Chad Johnson
Posted: April 17, 2014 01:45 PM
Updated: April 17, 2014 05:40 PM

CFL.ca Staff


MONTREAL -- The Montreal Alouettes announced on Thursday that they have signed veteran receiver Chad Johnson.

Johnson joins the Alouettes after spending 11 seasons in the NFL, including the first ten with the Cincinnati Bengals. The elite receiver amassed 11,059 receiving yards, which ranks him 30th on the NFL all-time list. He also caught 766 passes while scoring 67 receiving touchdowns. He averaged 14.4 yards per catch in his 166 career games played South of the border.

"Chad Johnson did an outstanding job the last three days. As we added him into the mix, it was to see how he communicated with the players, how he held himself, the way he physically held up, his true interest in coming to the CFL," said Jim Popp.

"It was a total evaluation so that it's a good fit. He was very happy and very excited to be on the field again and we are happy to welcome him to the Alouettes," added Popp.

Johnson cracked 1,000 receiving yards with Cincinnati in seven out of eight seasons from 2002 through 2009. He also snagged eight or more touchdown receptions in five separate occasions during his tenure with the Bengals.

Drafted in the second round (36th overall) by Cincinnati from Oregon State University, the Miami, Florida native reached the Pro Bowl five straight years from 2003-2007 and again in 2009 with the Bengals.

The now 36-year-old last played in 2011 with New England, where he made 15 catches for 276 yards and a touchdown. He caught one pass in Super Bowl XLVI for 21 yards as New England lost 21-17 to the New York Giants. Most recently he took part in the Miami Dolphins training camp in 2012.

Bold new CFL Signature Uniforms coming soon
August 06, 2014

Toronto – Canadian Football League teams are preparing to debut bold and exciting new CFL Signature Uniforms from Reebok later this summer, the league announced today.

“Our fans are absolutely going to love these innovative looks,” said CFL Commissioner Mark Cohon. “We respect tradition and our teams are very proud of our current home and away uniforms. But the CFL Signature Uniforms are intended to be bold and eye catching and push the envelope. And Reebok has worked hard with our franchises to deliver something really exciting.”

The product of eighteen months of consultation, design and manufacturing, each CFL Signature Uniform will be worn by its team twice this year, and again into next season.

“These are complete uniforms – everything, from head to toe, including helmet, jersey, pants, socks and even gloves – and they are entirely new,” said Sara Moore, VP Marketing for the CFL. “Each one tells a story about its team, what that team stands for, and the fans who stand with it.”

Fans got a bit of a sneak preview of the approach when the BC Lions debuted their new CFL Signature Uniform a year early, in 2013.

“The Lions were our forerunners last year and the fans snapped up the jersey that was at the centre of the team’s bold new gunmetal look,” said Stewart Clark, Marketing Director for Reebok Canada.

“So we’re really thrilled to see how Canadians right across the league react to the CFL Signature Uniform Program. It’s been a labour of love for us at Reebok, and an opportunity for some of our most fashion-forward designers, most creative minds and biggest CFL fans to give their own fresh twist to the teams’ uniforms.”

Later today, the CFL will issue a schedule on its Instagram account (@CFL_Official (http://instagram.com/cfl_official/)), which will expose the dates each team is slated to release its new CFL Signature Uniform. The Instagram account will also feature player reactions from some of the CFL’s biggest names.

And more details – including news on when and how fans can get their own CFL Signature Jerseys – will be available at CFL.ca and the league’s family of digital properties in the days ahead.

“With new stars emerging on the field, new stadiums dotting the CFL landscape, and new fans joining our loyal supporters, today’s CFL is poised for a bright and bold future,” Cohon said.

“These new uniforms capture that spirit and reflect our momentum. It’s going to be a lot of fun to see our teams proudly wear them and our fans react to them.”

Doesn't look like Edmonton is taking part in this? :(



Saskatchewan has actually done a full unveiling of their new jersey since they'll be using them within the next week. Personally, I say it doesn't look that bad for a football jersey. However, the "texture" they put on the helmet makes it look like a watermelon (which isn't that far off, since Rider fans have been known to sport their own "watermelon helmets" during home games). :lol:

Post by: JFC on August 24, 2014, 07:22:11 PM
So 3 more teams have revealed/unveiled their Signature jerseys:

CFL Signature Uniforms: Toronto Argonauts (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sp1P916lR-Q#ws)
Since Toronto already has a white jersey for when they play away games, this isn't that far of a stretch for them. Having the white helmet and more of the light blue (compared to the normally dominant dark blue) was a nice way to change things up. But what now, trying to copy hockey jerseys by putting the team logo on the front?


CFL Signature Uniforms: Ottawa REDBLACKS (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=StVp3_l-7dY#ws)
Nice that they gave them a red jersey, plaid helmet is definitely a first (I'm wondering if that's what made Burris laugh in the teaser video :lol: ). I'm sensing a pattern with the team logo on the front.


CFL Signature Uniforms: Winnipeg Blue Bombers (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PNa_DY1UKsQ#ws)
Just gotta say about the Bombers' jersey...I personally don't like it. No gold included (which is the biggest complaint Bomber fans have about them), instead we get the double-blue scheme that the Toronto Argonauts are known for. They don't look too bad when the players wear them with the helmet, but the problem is that without the helmet, the jersey (more precisely the replica versions they've made for fans to purchase (http://www.cflshop.ca/reebok/winnipeg-blue-bombers-cfl-signature-jersey-14511)) just looks like an greyish-blue t-shirt with the digi-camo parts.

Hamilton has revealed of it's Signature jersey. The logos on their helmets are huge, however with the jersey itself, unlike what we've seen so far from the other teams so far, Hamilton did not deviate too much from the look they have with their current home jerseys (http://www.cflshop.ca/reebok/hamilton-tigercats-premier-tc-jersey-10656).
CFL Signature Uniforms: Hamilton Tiger-Cats (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=59KuK1Wlbtk#ws)


Montreal has also revealed their Signature jersey, however as of this post, they've only posted pictures. No video yet, and no idea if they'll have one at all.

And of course, they had to make a video for the BC Lions. After all, when they debuted these gunmetal jerseys last year, it kind of prompted the league to do this whole "Signature" look thing this season.

Personally, to be honest, the new logo does nothing for me. It works well as a watermark in YouTube videos, but otherwise, it's just.....too......blah. I don't know who they hired to design it or how much they paid him/her/them to do so, but really, I've seen better/more impressive work from a lot of the high school Graphic Arts kids that I work with.



In other CFL news, it's Grey Cup weekend! Unfortunately daigong isn't able to make it out here to Peg Sheety to cheer on his Eskies tomorrow as they take on the Ottawa REDBLACKS, who managed to make it to the big game in only the franchise's 2nd year of operations!  :shocked


But no need to fear bro! Peg Sheety crew's gonna show your boys the love and support as they go on to whup those wannabe lumberjacks! :rockon:  :jphip:

The NHL isn't the only league switching to adidas for their uniforms. A league-wide unveiling happened today, with a couple of teams adopting more changes than others.

Honestly, the biggest surprise for me was the fact that adidas did NOT force their "3 stripes" onto the jerseys like how many people suspected they would.

Quote from: Edmonton Eskimos Official Website
The Edmonton Eskimos mourn the passing of former Lt.-Gov. and running back Norman “Normie” Kwong, who passed away Saturday, September 3, at the age of 86.

Kwong spent 10 years with the Green and Gold from 1951 to 1960. The Calgary native began his career with the Stampeders in 1948 before he was acquired by the Eskimos.

Photos of Normie Kwong, supplied. For David Staples feature to run.
In 183 career regular-season games, he ran 9,022 yards for an average of 5.2 yards per carry and scored 83 total touchdowns during an 11-year career of recorded statistics (CFL rushing yardage was not kept in the West Division prior to 1950).

He won the Grey Cup four times with seven appearances, once in 1948 with the Stampeders and then three in a row with the Green and Gold (1954, 1955, 1956).

Lieberman THIS PICTURE MUST BE CREDITED TO THE PROVINCIAL ARCHIVES OF ALBERTA!!!!!PLEASE!!!!!THANKS!!!!!!/NEIL NORMAN KWONG
Kwong was a four-time Western Conference All-Star, (1951, 1953, 1955, 1956) and a three-time winner of the Eddie James Memorial Trophy, leading the West in rushing (1951, 1955, 1956). He was the CFL’s Most Outstanding Canadian in 1955 and 1956. Also in 1955, was named the Canadian athlete of the year.

Kwong held the CFL record for most rushing yards in a single season by a Canadian with 1,437 in 1956 in 15 games. The record held for 56 years and it is still an Esks team record. He also holds the Eskimos record for most rushing touchdowns in a career with 72. Kwong added 75 receptions for 903 yards and four touchdowns during his impressive career.

He was inducted into the CFL Hall of Fame in 1969, the Canada Sports Hall of Fame in 1975, the Eskimos Wall of Honour in 1983 and the Alberta Sports Hall of Fame in 1987.

After football, Kwong transitioned into politics. He was made a member of the Order of Canada in 1988 and served as the national chairman of the Canadian Consultative Council on Multiculturalism. He was appointed Lieutenant-Governor of Alberta on Jan. 20, 2005 and served out his term until May 11, 2010.

Edmonton-January 20, 2004-Norman Kwong, the sixteenth Lieutenant Governor of Alberta, was officially installed as Lieutenant Governor of Alberta at Government House Thursday.

Talk about a small world. This happened last Friday (2017.12.08) at a local high school here in Peg Sheety. I'm actually going to be working at this school tomorrow, and I know the kid that got KO'd.


EDIT: They came up with a better title for the post. :P2

Oh and yeah, I'm going to be keeping an eye out for the kid in the hallways. :lol:


EDIT: For the record, I didn't see the kid today.
