Don't you just e-transfer the hundreds of millions from your ScotiaBank "Getting There" savings account whenever you make a major pro sport franchise transaction? That's usually what I do, I mean.

More of a CU by phone guy myself...to transfer press 1...

So this guy made just over a Billion dollars, that's impressive and a very rare accomplishment. He must have some idea how to manage money...but...1 billion dollars will evaporate very quickly buying things like NHL franchises that were not doing well and AAF leagues loosing money, sure a billion dollars seems like it will last forever and be extremely hard to burn through but this one purchase that one can safely assume he will lose.... is a quarter of his estimated net worth.

To put it into perspective its like someone with a $500,000 net worth (a very realistic net worth) deciding they really like a bowling alley that is loosing money and they decide to invest $125,000 into it and become the chairman...that's a big loss if/when they lose that investment. Make two or three choices like that and before you know it you are....

He is trash

Predatory sub prime lender.

We haven't had the best luck with WR's , other teams have had issues find OT's, or DB's, etc...  hopefully this is the year some of our WR light it up...

Nis16, 3 out of 4 points are on Lapo, he coaches the receivers, he calls the plays and he picks which QB he wants in at any of the plays.

 Wasn't he a more of a long ball coach in Sask, so whats with this big change in play calling. Is it that Nichols can't get the plays of fast enough or that he has a had time reading the field and can't get past his 2 or 3 read and starts hearing foot steps in the pocket? Maybe the WBB just want high % plays to try to stay on the field longer?

I doubt at all it was restructured to pay him more in line with the new contracts signed..makes zero sense and there is no obligation for the team to do so..I bet it was switched up to pay him more upfront money this year, as opposed to the 215k next January as a bonus, but they increased his base for 2020...that way we aren't tied to him or at the least having his big bonus be a hit on our 2020 sms....this probably is a precursor to extending Streveler if you ask me

So why even have contracts, he still had 2 years remaining. If this is so than might as well say goodbye to our backup at the end of this year. Nichols couldn't get out of his original contract unless he quits so why waste extra money when we could use it for players we need now.
The CFL won't last long with these high priced players or some of these guys will price themselves out of a job. What happens after some of these one year contracts end, where do the teams get the extra cash?
BC spent a lot of dollars and if they don't get to the cup do they let players walk. Good luck finding jobs at $225,000+ next year.

A reneg for Nichols makes zero sense in either direction:

Why would the team agree to take Nichols up to perceived market value when they have him locked in and have already paid him a huge bonus for this year? Because we are nice guys? The whole benefit of having a good player under a good contract is that you reap value off of the occasional better-than-contract performance from time to time. Otherwise all players (and all contracted employees in any business for that matter) would be begging to reneg after a good season/FY.

On the other hand, why would Nichols agree to take less? See rationale above. "Hey guys, I didn't really play up to par last year (although am now making less than market value) so I'm totally good with you paying me less money. I've gotta learn my lesson and get out there and earn more money!"

The only reason I could see Nichols taking less is if the team approached him and said that if he takes less, we can sign an impact player that would significantly upgrade the team. And if that's the case, all of us who criticized his attitude last year have some crow to munch on.

But of the two scenarios, which seems more likely? My money's on the latter. And if that is the case and he's agreed to take less money for the team's benefit, kudos to him on putting the team first.

And now deflection. Weird how other teams have been able to find all of the above. I guess only the Bombers are subject to the "law of averages" as far INT recruiting goes.

We haven't had the best luck with WR's , other teams have had issues find OT's, or DB's, etc...  hopefully this is the year some of our WR light it up...
