Ed taits reply to a "fan" calling Awe names and implying he took penalties:


Kinda harsh, man. Actually, more than kinda harsh. But I asked @DTonSC to help with this and he said Awe took one penalty last year for illegal contact and it was declined. Had two penalties in 2018. Are you thinking back further?

There is no doubt Alexander can play at safety if we choose to go that direction. The possible issue is whether we have enough Canadian depth at DT behind Thomas. Griffith hasn't played a game yet and we don't really know his upside. Losing Kongbo took away the 2nd Canadian that could rotate on the DL even though he did that at DE.

And yes it seems a waste of our most experienced DB to leave him at safety.

Another Canadian DL might still be added before TC.

Went through the entire F.A. list of available Natl. D-linemen and here s what's left. 

WESTERMAN Jamaal
MRABURE Ese
TURNER Junior
WESTERMAN Jabar
JOSEPH Jesse
MARSHALL Andrew
GODIN  Edward

I don't think they'll be bringing in any of these players but the ratio solution may still be available in another position. 

Still think they should have gone all in on Courtney Stephen.

I was hoping to get some assistance in trying to determine some of the history behind the window decals / stickers that the Blue Bombers have issued throughout their history.

The Bombers have produced stickers / decals for various stakeholders and purposes over the years and it appears (at least for some stretches of time) that they have annually issued unique stickers / decals for each season.  (For example, for "season ticket holders" and "Members" with specific years on them and generic stickers with the Bomber logo that have sponsor advertising.)

I know that the Bombers issued a "Season Seat Member"  water decal dating back to 1961 and last year the Bombers produced both 2019 Season Ticket Member and 2019 Bomber for Life stickers.  At various points in time in between I'm aware of annual decals / stickers they have produced for season ticket holders but I'm not sure whether they produced them continuously / annually.  For example it is quite common to find season ticket holder stickers from the mid-1980's through the early 1990's  but I have never seen any for the 2000's and early 2010's?  Does anyone know whether the Bombers actually have produced unique annual stickers for their season ticket holders from the early 1960's through today?

Additionally, In the mid-1980's the Bombers seemed to produce multiple stickers per year - for season ticket holders but also stickers that indicated "True Blue Booster" and then stickers that just had a date and / or slogan - sponsor advertisement.  (In 1985 I have seen 8 different sticker variations).  I know in some years in the mid-late 1980's they issued both "Season Ticket Holder" and "Member" stickers with the dates on them.  Does anyone know what the distinction between being a "Member" and "Season Ticket Holder" might have been?

Any insight would be appreciated.

Hebert wished he could hit like Awe, Awe hits like an Atomic bomb, he blows guys up!! He is Mr Mean and Nasty , which isn't a bad thing, crosses the line occassionally, but i tell you, offenses are going to be running at Biggie and away from Awe, and that's exactly what we want them to do.

I think Hecht played himself off the team. The wheels fell off midway through. They wanted to make a move and Kongbo was sitting there as the ready answer.

Hecht had one good game (first game of the year)...beyond that it was hair flipping and being a loudmouth on twitter

Can McGuire succeed? Guess we won't know until he gets a shot.

 I remember Awe making some questionable hits early in his career but nothing lately. I certainly wouldn't put him in the same category as Lawrence and definitely not Hebert whose off field actions IMO should have been enough to ban him from football.

He definitely got some fines for dirty hits.  I remember him picking up a Bomber and dropping him on his head instead of tackling him (think it was Dressler?).  I think it went uncalled by officials, though, so it may be hard for me to find video of it.  But it was bad enough that I still remember it and for it to sour me against him after that.

If it was Dressler then it would have had to have been when Awe was in BC.  Is that how you recall it?  If so, I can rewatch the '17 and '18 BC games.  I think we won almost all of them so it should be fun to rewatch.  I still think people are thinking of Ackie (MTL), but I could be mistaken.
