Official Game Day Thread  Winnipeg at Hamilton - August 12, 2017

Roster Changes:  Conteh and Gauthier in; Alexander and Renaud out.

Definitely a winnable game.  Blue Bomber Position Chart follows:

Go blue! Nice to see Conteh get on the roster. Winnipeg boy. Third round pick in this year's draft that they're pretty high on. He's also got some size. 6-2, 205. All starters the same from the Ottawa game.

Yeah nice to see him and what he can bring...in a perfect scenario would love to see him be able to jump into the safety spot and allow us to see if Loffler is an upgrade over Hurl as a LB...Have a feeling he would excel there, or have him take over for the Roc at corner and allow us to employ a thumper at LB and have Hurl as depth

I'm hoping we do eventually find a Canadian DB. Starting 2 Canadians in the secondary really helps the ratio. Unfortunately, I'm assuming since Renaud went to the PR (don't love that move, he looked better than Rush on STs) and Gauthier coming on and Alexander going to the 1 game, it'll be Foketi and either Flanders or Conteh most likely coming off

I'd be surprised if Flanders doesn't play just based on the matchup but who knows?

Flanders will do very well \(for the next two games) if he plays and gets touches.

I think Flanders brings an infinite number of problems for match ups in the defence. Our offence looked very good last game I.m.o.

Woo Hoo! Hammy should be ready and over-do. Bombers are the better football team.  Very nervous!

He'll get a game cheque but it's Conteh may not play as they could go with Gauthier.

Based on the ratio Flanders will play as Alexander was on the 2 man reserve last week.

Yea, you're probably right. That would be too bad. I'm cheering for Conteh.

I expect Conteh and Foketi to be scratches this week, with Flanders active.

He didn't get a single pick vs. the Bombers last season, in 2014, or in 2013. He did have three picks on Willy in two games in 2015, though. Here's hoping 2015 continues to be the anomaly.
