Official Game Day Thread  Winnipeg at Hamilton - August 12, 2017

Roster Changes:  Conteh and Gauthier in; Alexander and Renaud out.

Definitely a winnable game.  Blue Bomber Position Chart follows:

Go blue! Nice to see Conteh get on the roster. Winnipeg boy. Third round pick in this year's draft that they're pretty high on. He's also got some size. 6-2, 205. All starters the same from the Ottawa game.

Yeah nice to see him and what he can bring...in a perfect scenario would love to see him be able to jump into the safety spot and allow us to see if Loffler is an upgrade over Hurl as a LB...Have a feeling he would excel there, or have him take over for the Roc at corner and allow us to employ a thumper at LB and have Hurl as depth

I'm hoping we do eventually find a Canadian DB. Starting 2 Canadians in the secondary really helps the ratio. Unfortunately, I'm assuming since Renaud went to the PR (don't love that move, he looked better than Rush on STs) and Gauthier coming on and Alexander going to the 1 game, it'll be Foketi and either Flanders or Conteh most likely coming off

I'd be surprised if Flanders doesn't play just based on the matchup but who knows?

I think Flanders brings an infinite number of problems for match ups in the defence. Our offence looked very good last game I.m.o.

Woo Hoo! Hammy should be ready and over-do. Bombers are the better football team.  Very nervous!

He'll get a game cheque but it's Conteh may not play as they could go with Gauthier.

Based on the ratio Flanders will play as Alexander was on the 2 man reserve last week.

WooHoo.....was hoping to take the GO train tomorrow to Hamilton but we gotta settle for the GO bus on weekends. Nice little hour An half cruise from Toronto in the morning......shorter than a Brandon to Winnipeg trip for a game.......wanted to take the Via rail train this morning to Montreal for that game but the mrs didn't want to blow a day of work while she is here....oh well gonna do a jazz/booze night thing at the ripley aquarium, no kids allowed.

He didn't get a single pick vs. the Bombers last season, in 2014, or in 2013. He did have three picks on Willy in two games in 2015, though. Here's hoping 2015 continues to be the anomaly.

You're probably right...but it should be Foketi and Couture IMHO...when Neuf got healthy last year towards the end of the year, we started this trend of dressing 7 O-lineman but really using Neuf as the 6th O-lineman?  If Conteh is healthy, I think it makes more sense to keep him and Ekatite on the field to play ST and (in Ekatities's case) get some rotational D reps...dressing Couture and Neufeld seems like a waste...


Title: Re: Official Game Day Thread - Winnipeg at Hamilton - August 12, 2017
Post by: TBURGESS on August 12, 2017, 01:08:40 PM
This is the kind of game we should expect to win every single time. The Ticats are horrible. 0-6 and last in most offensive and defensive stats. They've got injury problems, a cobbled together O line, and a QB that has only played one, maybe two good games all season long. I doubt O'Shea will let his players look past this one. We need to win it to keep pace with the rest of the West and I expect that's just what will happen. Hopefully even a blowout so we can see what Davis has to offer.

I think we need to play a very solid game tonight to get the win. Ball control and good solid D. It would be nice to get to Collaris early and rattle his cage. Hamilton still has a very good DL, and a couple of good LB's on there D. The Cat's are in need of a win. However with that said, we are a good road team and just need to play a solid game.

Agreed....they haven't blown out any team this year.  Last year we won both games with the Cats....the one on the road was close and we blew them out 37-11 at home.  I'll take a one point victory though NP.

Tonight scares me. It's the zero win teams that sometimes tend to get the better of us. My logic tells me Winnipeg is the better team and we should win but then I look at our points against and how Hamilton nearly knocked off Edmonton last week. As long as our D shows up in some form I think Winnipeg will win because I'm not too concerned about our average 30pts plus per game offence.

I have a bad feeling about this game.  I think the Bombers will have to come from behind yet again in the fourth quarter to win.  Somehow Richie Hall's defense will find a way to give up 400+ yards and 30+ points to the Ticats.

Gonna head to the game a little early now and do an outside tour of the litter box....maybe see if I can join some tailgating.......check out the "game day experience" as ya'all put it....can't wait to see #16 put a clean and safe solid hit on a receiver when it matters...hopefully early in the game...

Woohoo! GO BOMBERS GO !

Beat me to the punch.

I think we wouldn't have this problem if Richie Hall would be told his job is in jeopardy if we give up those numbers or worse yet, lose.

The interesting subplot to all this is how the TiCat defense is going to respond to the Reinbold firing.  If they look like a scattered and confused bunch .... I think that means blow em out.  If they play more organized and tough assignment football, I'd be worried.

But I think that's the big hooker to this.

I'm cynical?  I've done nothing but praise Matt Nichols and defend him and the offense even to the point of offending one fan who thought i was nuts for saying we got the best offense in Bomber history.  Only thing I've been out to lunch on is Richie Hall and for good reason.  If you think I'm cynical, read TBurgess's posts.

Well, the 1st qtr good bad and ugly edition...

The Good ....

Fairly long offensive drives that have all resulted in points

The D has two 2 and outs

The Bad ....

Those drives ended in FGs

Nichols took a few sacks there

The Ugly ....

John Chick and Don Unamba

Stupid penalties, dink and dunk offence that makes 3-6 yards per play and stalls in red zone, Hall's soft defensive schemes at the worst time, they're letting the cats get back into the game, and with a little confidence, they might surprise us.

Yes too many field goals.

Hamilton is really struggling on offence.

We are giving them the game now a holding in the punt return by a .......away from the play.  What a dope.

Are Bombers. Throwing at Frederick.

Andrew looks so slow. Dead legs, no bounce, yikes.....

Where Shultzee?

ESPN have forgotten about the CFL this time of the year, so I'm stuck listening to the CJOB broadcast.  (Not that I'm complaining.)  Neither Bob nor Doug gave it a second thought.  And like clockwork, Westerman responded with a legitimate candidate for defensive POG.

That's a common trait on this Bomber squad---there is no quit in any of them. They are a blue collar-lunch bucket-play to the final whistle team, traits everyone can relate to and admire which makes them a VERY easy team to cheer for!!!

I hate deep ball to JFG

25% chance at best

Based on what I remember of all BB games in the last 3 years the deep ball to JFG is 0% chance at best.  That said, I love JFG, he's probably my favorite BB receiver.  He makes 95% of the 5 to 22 yard catches.  He takes hits and hangs on.  He has no fear.  And best of all, all teams underestimate him, which often helps him get open.  And he's a National!  Go JFG!!

I will note that the throw you referenced almost was caught by JFG, twice (the original catch attempt plus the deflection reach)!  If JFG somehow starts matching up with Nichols on the deep threat, he'll be a 1000 yard receiver.

Nice to watch a game when the outcome is never in doubt.

I don't know... a couple of moments in the 2nd and 3rd I had sweaty palm syndrome for a brief while.  There were a couple of momentum moments where we could have started to lose it.  Credit the BB that they kept it together and played to win until 0:00 (they sure learned from the BC game!).

In some ways this would have been the worst game to lose so far this year: we'd be the league losers who lost to the losingest loser team.  Sure glad BB played a real solid game.

When you watch it on the PVR, let us know if any of the fancam shots were you, as there were at least 3 different Bomber fans I saw them zoom in on.  One was a young dude with his gf/wife.

Too bad about Dom: even though I usually say leave Nichols in until it's a 100% sure thing I would have put Dom in with 1:30 left just to see what happens.  But since I picked Nichols in fantasy, I'm not too angry  :D

Who was on the hot mic at the end of the game, making comments like "this is fricking ridiculous" and "if you're going to fight, fight about g@$#^&% something...

 ??? Ya, WTH was that about?  It was a strange game for accidental live mics.  It sounded to me like TSN control talking, but I guess it could have been a live-mic player feed?  (Who was live-mic'd for this game?)  I don't think Black/Forde can hear it as they don't miss a beat; that, or this is normal control antics and they're used to it.

The ones you mention were at:
  • 4Q 0:40 "Please fight about something. Fight about g@$#^&% something."  2nd voice: "Mic check one two" occurs when they are showing the slow-mo of Flanders' failed first TD attempt.
  • 4Q 0:27 "You want a sound f@$# that's just frickin brutal" during the slow-mo of Flanders' successful TD

Besides those there were a couple of strange breathy noises earlier in the game.  I wouldn't be shocked if someone set someone else up on purpose, as a prank or some sort of vendetta.  No way you accidentally turn on such foul language on TV at least two separate times!  Especially since control's channel never gets anywhere near the live mix: probably not even in the same board.

People should make a stink about this (new thread?) as I'm super curious to find out the skinny.  I don't see any hits on google about this on the other forums (yet), perhaps they'll show up tomorrow.  Or perhaps everyone had turned off the game by then?  Not this Blue faithful!

If anyone is interested, I can see if I can lift the audio bites directly out of the computer PVR.

Bonus fun: SC says next week is HAM v OTT: "the desperation bowl"; Forde: "well they both can't lose".  Priceless.   ;D ;D ;D

Yeh the ham fans know changes are coming soon...and more than a few asked me if we could please give them their first win. One thing that kinda sucked was how hard a few fans were on their team at the end, some of the stuff they were yelling at the bench was pretty rude and over the top, An what really sucked about that was the look on some of the tiger cat players faces. You couldn't help but think it's still just a game. I did yell for once though to step on their throat near the end of the third. Lol

Did anyone else catch the play (2nd Q maybe?) where ZC was pressured & hit, but the ball seems to come loose before he goes down.  Announcers didn't say anything, but I was jumping thinking it was a fumble.  Ofcourse replay doesn't show much, and TSN goes to commercial. No replay after that.

I thought that the ball came out and hit Collaros' right thigh before he was down. I was surprised the Bombers didn't challenge, since if successful they would have taken possession on the Hamilton 25 yd. line.

I'm with you on this one. Randle definitely made the sweep with his right hand and loosened the ball. The replay angle shown was weak, but the ball was coming out before Collaros hit the ground.

How you can leave Chungh off that list, I don't know...  and Remple...  so many ST great plays start with a perfect snap... like the "pooch" kick... even a little bit off and its blocked.

Remple is the leagues best long snapper, but I wouldnt expect someone to list him as one of our top Canadians...

So many good NATs I forgot about Mr Nasty!! And 1-2 to add to the list, probably more--mike miller and jones on ST

Oversights aside and point being is we have as good a list of NAT s as any team and Walters inherited an absolute  mess 3 years ago. Rebuilds can be done it just takes time

Was that Corneys first sack? He is looking really improved lately, really this only being his second season if he continuous to grow as he has been he could develop into a very good Lineman.

Corney and Thomas are coming along quite nicely!

That's true.  It's just that he's been rotational for most of the time.  Now he's really coming into his own and may deserve to start.  The talent this team has on the DL is impressive.

You only miss them when they're gone. I still remember when our long snapper (think it was Wild at the time) was injured, and we were regularly watching snaps sail wide or high. It seemed like we were giving up 7 points a game due to missed snaps.

Oh yeah. I remember a couple years back when Wild got hurt so we had Fitzgerald, Pontbriand and Kyle Jones all taking turns. It was awful. Long snappers are just as important as kickers.

I kind of agree with the comments about the importance of the long snapper, but I also kind of agree that I wouldn't list them as one of your best Canadians, either...

The good long snappers are pretty close to interchangeable. Rempel may be the best but if it's Caron or Benson or whoever else, you won't notice. They're all very good at what they do. On the other hand, you'll notice in a big way once you have to use one that isn't very good at it.

Exactly this. Just like you wouldn't usually list a STer as a "top Canadian" just because you usually reserve that for Canadians playing the highest impact positions. Like our "top Canadians" could be viewed as Harris, Chungh, Goossen, Loffler, Westerman and Thomas and JFG not in that order. You could also include Hurl and I supposed you could say Miller, Remple, Corney and Jones. But the moniker "Top Canadian" is normally used for Canadians with decent offensive or defensive stats

Every team has a Nat LS, for sure.  But only 1 team has the best LS in the game.  Just like we have the best P/K.  So, when filling out your list of Nat's, when you have a guy that is the best at his position, he is a top Nat. 

Case in point.  The pooch kick.  That snap has to be spot on.  No debate.  And Remple gets it there.   

So, yes, as far as a Nat player goee, he is a top Canadian.

Never thought of this before but that parade of long snappers may have been part of the reason Hajrullahu had such an inconsistant sophomore year.  Medlock has taught us all that there's a lot more to kicking than just the kicker.

In an either/or situation?  But that's not the point.  Would you take Sinopoli over JFG?  We're talking about a position that must be filled, usually filled by a Nat, and we have the best one in the league.  The Sinopoli of LS...

It is the point if you're talking about listing our best Canadians.

Also, your comparison is very poor. The drop-off from Sinopoli to JFG is far, far higher than the drop-off from Rempel to any other LS. There is a marginal drop-off from Rempel to the worst LS in the league. The drop-off at LS occurs when suddenly you're stuck using a guy that doesn't do it on a regular basis... and then, yeah, you notice it in a big way. But every single dedicated LS in the league is very good.

It is though. A "top Canadian"  isn't just a Canadian. You said Rempel is a "Top Canadian". He's a Canadian starter who is good at what he does, but that doesn't make him a "Top Canadian". You could say the same about Hurl or JFG, two guys who imo aren't "top Canadians" but start and do their jobs well, but aren't ratio breakers

Who was on the hot mic at the end of the game, making comments like "this is fricking ridiculous" and "if you're going to fight, fight about g@$#^&% something...

What a nice game, watching it again.  Loved Hurl's TD run... no quit in him...

Yeah, I was watching the game at a block party in the back of a truck so I couldn't hear the commentary very well.  My brother pointed that out the next day, though, and I just listened to it myself now.  That is clearly Duayne Forde, and that wasn't an accident.  He was doing commentary like he always does, and I've never seen or heard that before. 

I thought Forde was better than that.  I'm not impressed.  I'm sure he wouldn't care what I think as an individual (before anyone flames me here), but he may care when TSN gets complaints about this.  I've heard of some talk about that, and I don't blame them. 

Really, was that necessary?

I can't see Ford spouting off like that, I think it was a tech in the truck, but if he did, big deal. The guy's totally into the CFL and each game he does. He brings a unique perspective from his playing days and I enjoy his commentary.

It was Forde.  No question whatsoever.  Just listen for 30 seconds before and after.  Same voice, without a doubt, no change in volume or anything else.  It's not an accident, not a mic'd player or coach, not someone from the mother ship (Dunigan?!?! Not even close).

And yeah, Forde is big into the CFL.  But apparently he isn't better than this.  Hopefully he is at his baseline, and this was just a misstep.

But I don't agree that this is nothing.  I get it that people under 25 (arbitrary number) view cursing with much less disdain, and it has become a part of culture.  I hear 1290 and the young voices trying to get in half of George Carlin's list in every second sentence, and it's childish at best.

I swear - too much for my liking.  I still think having to throw in an expletive can be a sign of either a simple mind, or laziness.

I really don't think it's Forde unless its a previous recording.

Five reasons:

1. Black says "there's Flanders" and exactly 1 second later the voice says the "please fight about something".  The two guys are sitting right next to each other and the mics are rigged to pick up some ambient crowd noise, therefore Forde would know that, even if his mic wasn't live, Black's mic would pick up his voice.

2. Exactly 6 seconds after that first rant Forde calmly continues "looks like the Tiger Cats held them out there".  You can't rant about "g@#%!@# something" and then calmly say that next line, humans don't work that way.

3. The rant is followed by a for-sure-not-Forde-or-Black voice saying "sound check": so it's clear that control voices are being leaked into the mix.

4. During the second rant ("you want a sound f#%#") the voice is much different and really doesn't sound like Forde at all (whereas the first rant does a bit).  The guy has major sibilant s's which Forde doesn't do.

5. And in that second rant Forde is speaking at the same time as the rant voice!  Therefore it cannot be Forde, unless it is a previous recording.

It's not Forde!  Unless it's prerecorded (unlikely).  For sure that second rant is not Forde.  I'll bet dollars to donuts that someone is playing a prank or trying to purposely expose someone, or something equally nefarious.  Like I said before, there were some "heavy breathing" accidental overlays earlier.

If you still think it's Forde (on both rants), how do you explain away all of the above?

For those who don't have this recorded, if anyone is interested I can try to get an audio recording up here.

Oh ya, and I just noticed that Forde actually stops what he is saying mid-sentence while the 2nd rant voice increases in volume, meaning Forde is almost definitely hearing the voice on his headset! 

Forde: "ya well you consider...." <stops>
said simultaneous with
Voice: "you want a sound f#@$ that's"
then:
Voice: "just frickin brutal"
<1 second pause>
Forde: "...situations they've been in"

(i.e. Forde stopped cold when he heard the expletive.)

The second rant cannot be Forde and I think the first one isn't either, because I think it's the same voice.

Okay, I will try to listen to it again after work.  Not that I don't believe you, I just didn't take the time to analyze it that in-depth, as it seemed so clearly Forde on the GD rant.  I was very positive it was his voice, it sure sounded like him to the point there was no doubt for me.

But of course, I may well be wrong on that, and if I am, I stand corrected.

I hope you are right, that it was some idiot playing a prank or something.  Still sounded bush-league, and not appropriate for a televised event.  If it was an error somehow, then I agree, not a big deal.
