LOL Lincoln Locomotive!  My brother's fav. player was Leo Lewis too.
Mine was Billy Cooper #1 and Ken Ploen #2. I was commenting on
someone else's FB when he asked our all-time fav. Bomber players.
I couldn't believe it when a guy also said Billy Cooper #1 and Ken Ploen #2.
Billy wasn't with the Bombers very long, but was a Rookie of the Year in the West
and a great receiver for us. I really liked Leo Lewis and Ken Nielsen too. 

Now my fav. player in Ian Wild #1 and Clarence Denmark #2.

Yes "Doc" Nielsen was another favourite of mine but he just missed the bus as far as being on all those Grey Cup winning teams.  He still has the CFL record for longest play from scrimmage at 109 yards.   Ken Ploen threw a strike from the endzone that he caught around the 35 yard line which was about as far as he could throw it and took it all the way to the house.  He also made one of the most spectacular one handed catches ever which was a diving catch where he completely laid himself out, landing face down with the ball cradled in his outstretched hand.  I wish I could find a video highlite of that catch because it was something that didn't happen that often in the CFL in those days! 

My favorite Bombers now are Andrew Harris and Matt Nichols....and I'm really liking this new kid Thorpe who reminds me so much of Terry Vaughn who used to play for Edmonton!

Hello, new to this forum but not a new bomber fan. I have been watching the Bombers and the CFL in general for as long as I can remember. I remember seeing the bombers win their last grey cup in 1990 as a young boy. Still waiting for another and now have two young boys of my own...

iLooking foward to joining in some bomber talk!
