While this is unfortunate, it speaks to our ability to find new faces that fit better in our system

This alone tells me that our depth on DB just got much better than last year.  Good luck in your career Walker and thanks for the time as a Bomber.
Whatever happened to "developing and being patient will be worth it"?

I stand by what I said, developing players and having patience with them is a corner stone to any good sports team.   I guess you wanted to have him gone last year year right? Would that have made any sense?  Nope.

It's great the Bombers kept him around to see if he could win a job.  He lost out.  That's ok and a very good sign that the talent we have is at least slightly better than last year.  I like how you tried to pull one from my "eat crow" playbook here but it's not working.  You were wrong so often last year it was pretty sad.  I'm not saying I'm always right and yes I would liked to see this guy develop but I also trust management and our coaches.  We are progressing and I will still preach patience with our group of young players.  It has worked our well with Alexander so far.  This guy have been worth the investment.  It's too bad Walker didn't pan out but it doesn't mean that he is a bad football player.  Either he wan't ready or didn't fit into our ball club.  I has never in love with the guy but I strong feel that you rarely get better by deletion (especially when you don't have anyone to replace the player that leaves).  In this case we had a body in camp that was better.  This is great thing.  It was pretty clear in BC, when he got beat that he wouldn't make the club.  He still struggled with the same stuff as last year.  Dunigan mentioned him I think at half time and how he didn't cover well enough on that play.

Keep trying to take stabs just like you did last year.  I really hope it makes you feel like a real winner!  It was fun then and will be fun this year.  You are so predicable and so rarely bang on that it's just great fun.  And, this is a good way to get your post count up!  That might make you look more respectable! LOL

You notice in my post about Walker, that I thanked him for his time here.  Might want to try a little more respect when you post things.

I'm just sayin, last season your excuse for us putting up with him was "developing" him. Obviously it didnt work out. Notice how you need to type a paragraph for a kne sentence response.

I love to talk! LOL

We had to put up with him for two reasons:

1. We didn't have anyone else
2. Bombers likely thought he showed enough to keep him on the rosters

I was and am ok with the above.

#Bombers depth following 25 cuts. We can expect Nichols, Leggett, Wild, and LaFrance to begin the season in the Injured List, plus a few others. Still room for two more on the Practice Roster.

Six new projected starters for 2018 - Fenner, Gaitor, Roh, Bighill, Bowman, Demski.

I have defensive starters as: Loeffler, Fogg, Alexander, Randel, Fenner, Gaitor, Santos-Knox, Baghill, Jeffcoat, Opo, Nevis, Johnson

offensive starters: Ross, Bryant, Neufield, Gossssen, Chungh, Hardrick, Adams, Dressler, Bowman, Demski, Petermann, Harris

DI: Medlock, Rempel, Roh, Lankford

Reserve: Thompkins, Renaud

Injured: Nichols, Leggett, Flanders, Menard-Briere, Wild, LaFrance

To maintain ratio this is about all I could see happening. Besides QBs the only other import standing on the sidelines will be Foketi

All of our new starters are FA acquisitions. Scouting? We don't need no stinkin' scouting.  Wink

Really, you don't... We're looking at everybody that wants to play in the CFL, some teams get the call earlier, probably due to agent relationships would be my guess. And I'm sure that we've made inquiries to some players that just don't want to play in the CFL for whatever reason or are down with ball completely... Look at our camps, they bring virtually everyone that shows and signs of playing. I'd be concerned if we were seeing our camp goes being cut and then going on to other teams and succeeding...

Well that's wrong.

1. Remple is a Canadian.
2. Foketi will be on the 2 man reserve.
3. Spooner might be on the 2 man reserve.
4. If lines 2 and 3 don't happen then there would be 8 OL on the 44 AR. Not likely. 7 maybe if Spooner stays on 44 AR.


It the IR list is correct that leaves Thompkins and B. Bryant on the AR over Leggett and Wild from a ratio point of view.  Not sure that is the plan since it leaves no DB or LB as DI's.

EDIT: It appears Menard Briere was released according to another string comment.

I definitely question some of the non-cuts.  Walters/MOS might be afraid of losing chemistry from last year.

One name on today's cuts jumped out at me.  Travis Bond.  I know there's gonna be interest around the league.  Am I the only one that feels having him back, especially with young QBs starting the year, make Bond worthy of pursuit?  He was missed in preseason.

Won't work with the ratio. Where would you start another Canadian to get him on the roster starting?

How would you adjust the ratio to make this happen?

never said it was 'right', just 'mine'... much easier to complete a roster with your style of commitment...
