On the other forum, there is a report from  Ted Wyman that BC will not be going after Bighill when free agency arrives.
Could be big news for BB, although other teams will be sniffing around!!
Adam posted a photo of his son who had just completed his first day at pre-school.  It didn't say where. That might be a good thing to know.
If his kid is in pre-school here that would be a positive thing but if it was in BC,  not so much, but still not a total downer as it is only per-school I suppose.

There is no snow on the ground and there looks to be mountains in the background. Definitely NOT in Winnipeg.

However, I remain hopeful that he and BB will work something out and he will be back with the team next year.

not a big factor really...if their off-season home is out there..makes sense he would at the least start school there as opposed to missing out until the new season starts

I'm pretty sure that I read that he and his family returned to Vancouver before the holidays. To me not a big deal as that is where I believe that his wife and her family are from. To me what is encouraging is that in the interview on the Bomber website Walters says that he and his agent are still talking and when the Bombers announce a re-signing he puts a like on his twitter account.

Wyman is a Wpg based sports writer, I would feel better if Dunk or Edwards or Ullrich were reporting that BC isn't interested.

And while it is a good sign Bighill's agent is talking to Wpg, at this stage of the calendar we are the only ones he is allowed to talk to, so I wouldn't get too excited just yet.

A lot of our re-signings so far have been guys who have established their market value, have settled in here, etc.  They weren't likely to be moving or free agent priorities for other teams.

Bighill is someone who can definitely benefit from testing the free agent market (just like Chung and Goosen). Doesn't mean they definitely will, but they aren't going to be in a huge rush to sign early just because they like our zoo and all the swell fans.  Expect all three of those deals to close just before free agency opens or possibly shortly afterwards.  They are marketable commodities.

Never thought BC was interested. A little worried about Calgary, but agree it's not their style to go out and sign a big name.

Ted Wyman @Ted_Wyman

From what I'm hearing at #CFL meetings it doesn't sound as of now like the BC Lions are going to be in on LB Adam Bighill if he gets to free agency, which certainly makes it more likely that he will stay with #Bombers.

Not worried about Calgary at all really, unless Huff throws the keys to the vault at him or we low ball him for some reason. Biggie loves playing for the Blue Bombers, the only team that had a shot at him was BC because he could drive home a couple times a week from Vancouver and he has been there in the past for many years. A plane ride is a plane ride, whether it's from Winnipeg or Calgary it makes almost zero difference in both cost or time.

I guess a Rider fan was wrong on this one.

Bighill will be anchoring our D for the next 3 years.  Awesome.
