I wouldn't say Miller is a bottom end player for the bombers. Canadian, top ST's player, and comes in to block on some O plays.

So Fred, do you like MASH or are you a Humphrey Bogart fan?

BOMBERS ADD TWO TO ROSTER

WINNIPEG, MB., December 12, 2018 -   The Winnipeg Blue Bombers announce today the club has signed international defensive lineman Evan Perrizo and international defensive back Jimmy Pruitt.

Perrizo (6'5, 275, Minnesota State, May 26, 1995 in Eden Prairie, MN) played five seasons for the Minnesota State Mavericks, totalling 138 tackles, 27 sacks and four forced fumbles in 51 games. In his senior season in 2017, Perrizo recorded 12 sacks, the fifth-most in a season in team history. In 2018, Perrizo signed with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers as an undrafted free agent.

Pruitt (6'0, 203, San Jose State, November 28, 1992 in San Diego, CA) played four seasons for the San Jose State Spartans, totalling eight interceptions, 182 tackles and four forced fumbles in 47 games. In 2016, Pruitt signed with the New Orleans Saints as an undrafted free agent.

Could we lose Jordan Younger to Hamilton:

I thought Younger was being groomed to take over from Hall and would hate to see him leave.

Other than a journalist recognizing that he is an up and coming coach, there has been zero indication that anyone is interested in Younger as a DC.

I would prefer you just pay more attention


lol. Just to recap, I made an innocent comment that I was pleasantly surprised by the signing, on a fan discussion forum no less, and the fact that I was a bit surprised has lead you to conclude that I should become more knowledgeable about a special teams player on a CFL team.

lol, take a hike.

Steinauer says he?s not averse to taking a chance on potential, so that brings up the likes of current CFL assistant coaches James Stanley and Jordan Younger, who have been associated with defensive success in Winnipeg and Toronto and have deep previous history with the new Ticat boss.

Where do I get the idea we are about middle of the pack in terms of football ops expenses? Wade Miller was asked at one of the annual fan forums. He stated that we used to be notoriously cheap and it affected our on field product. He said he was committed to increasing the amount but cautioned that as a community owned club with big financial commitments that we will always be middle of the pack in terms of spending. He said that because we couldn't be big spenders that it was paramount to build an organization that treats people well yada yada yada. So to answer your question, I got the information straight from the horses mouth. When asked if he would run with the Jones's he said no, he wouldn't be the cheapest in the league anymore but the Bombers still had to control expenses.

I didn't imply or mean that Football ops boils down to 3 people.

We used to be cheap. Less coaches. Less scouts. Less experience. Gave new guys their first shot at the next level. Expecting top results from average to below average people and pay was the Winnipeg way. That's not who we are anymore.

Where do you get your opinion that most of our staff make average money? The big 3 are on their 6th year. Our OC and DC are very experienced and experience costs. We have a larger scouting department than we've ever had before. We took them from other teams, so I'd doubt that we got them for cheap or even average. We're known for paying players for potential before they've earned the big salaries. I expect that's the same thing we do with football ops.

We're not the Riders, but we're not the Bombers of old either.

True what you say....however I will only feel vindicated when the Grey Cup parade comes to Winnipeg!   Anything less is window dressing!

Never a bad thing to be clear about whether you are stating an opinion or a fact.
