Our biggest problem is ALL empty seats in Winnipeg. It's truly tough going to games when 7,000 empty seats are visible. Winnipeggers need to stop complaining about everything and where stadium is located and get over it. Parking bla bla.

Its like some ppl think we are worst case scenario. Try go to Gb, Patriots stadium, Ottawa senators.  You wanna talk about location!!

Green Bay was crazy to get out of, over hour to drive back to our hotel which was 10 Min's away. Ottawa has arena in middle of no where (they're probably getting new downtown arena in city of Ottawa)  new England' patriots is in small *** town and only way is driving or going to restaurant and getting there bus to drive you.

This city had to change it's attitude. I've heard ppl actually calling bombers and getting rid of their seasons because of location. Like really? You have one football team. About 11 dates a year to attend, it's not that bad

Story about new in Ssk.

Winnipeg, Hamilton and Ottawa all built new mid-sized stadiums and Toronto just moved into BMO Field. And they too are going to be green and white with envy with the splendor of the new digs the Roughriders will play in this year.
Built by PCL of Edmonton, the same company that constructed the downtown arena that NHL commissioner Gary Bettman reviewed as the greatest house of hockey in the world, Regina's wins when it comes to the new mid-sized stadiums around the league.
While there are many positive aspects to the new stadiums in Hamilton, Winnipeg and Ottawa, all have serious flaws and all are in litigation. And the Argos move into BMO Stadium can?t compare either.
You could debate which of those medium-sized stadiums rank 2-3-4, but this place is coming on stream at No. 1.
This stadium, a short walk across the parking lot from where the quirky old bandbox of a stadium known for most of it?s lifetime as Taylor Field still stands, is near perfection.

Hmm. Anyways.
IGField will have new look on bottom level. As there are 4 different view spots. 2 on each side of endzone. They took out I think 5 rows and pushed concourse closer to feild  to give more walking room and for ppl to view. The endzone by bombers store (big one) also getting bombers colored theme look.

Our defence was not good in the 2nd half....neither was our offence though. When one part of your club is faltering another has to take up the slack. Maybe that's not fair, but that's football. You win and lose as a team. If our offence sustains any kind of a drive in the 2nd half of the game maybe our defence would have regrouped. Who knows.
Agreed....

I don't think winning is the first answer.  I think Winnipeg has a great fanbase.  The gameday experience has to improve though.  The U of M location was wrong in the first place and the decisions were made up high in management.  The first thing that needs to change is the people at the top that are not held accountable to anyone.

I agree. Those are our greatest NAT needs...and more importantly there are excellent prospects available.
I would think that the Bombers would like to get back to a 3 NAT OL sooner rather than later. Drafting Bladek may open that potential by next year.

Only wildcard would be Mulumba...

Oline, Dline, Receiver will be the focus in the first round in no particular order at this point.  Just an guess but a no brainer to me.

Not a chance will we go for a HB, DB or LB for 1 and 6.

He would definitely have a leg up on any other potential Head Coaching Candidates, in that he understands the hockey community and culture here.

What is Ken Hitchcock up to after being released from St Louis last month???

Here's a guy that's got a TON of coaching experience, at the NHL and international level, and he's sitting at home while Maurice & company continues to flounder behind our bench. Go figure.

Hitch is an X and Os, system type of guy and no doubt our team D and special teams would improve immediately. He's also likely have a deeper list of assistants to pull from vs McLean,  to help bring our younger players along.  I'd go with Hitch if he's available.

According to this article, Paul Maurice is signed a 4 year deal in April 2014, which I calculate would end at the end of the 2017-2018 season.

http://www.theglobeandmail.com/sports/hockey/jets-sign-head-coach-paul-maurice-to-four-year-contract-extension/article18037987/

If he can't get the Jets into the playoffs next season, is there any chance we could hire someone like Paul McLean to replace him (assuming Anaheim would release him from his contract to pursue a head coaching job)?
I thought McLean did a nice job as head coach in Ottawa from 2011 to 2015.
They made the playoffs the three full seasons he was the head coach, and were 11-11 in 2014-2015 when he left.
I figure he would be a popular in Winnipeg after his playing career with the Jets.  Cheesy

Well we met our quota of allowing at least 1 flukey/soft goal per game, the winner no less, again. It just gets old watching the Jets compete hard game in and game out and seeing these type of goals to in regularly, often thas deciding point between a win or a lose, and it's been the difference beteeen is making the playoffs vs hitting on the back nine

I too don't get why Stuart is in the lineup, period. Yes we re down defensemen, a lot of them, but the guys day is done, he is a sloth out there.
