Hey all,

I'm going to be writing for CFL News Hub covering the Bombers.

I wrote my first article for CFL News Hub, so we will see when it?s published.

Lots of respect to those who wrote articles, it?s not as easy as it looks.

I?m sure it?s going to be a bit rough at first, so if you read, please extend some grace as I learn.

I will do that Donny. But .. where were you on Friday, the RedBlacks were showing very little respect for 107, it would have helped if you were there !!

I'm going to be writing for CFL News Hub covering the Bombers.

Is CFL News Hub an old-fashioned print publication or is it strictly an online thingy?

I was away over the weekend at a cabin in Ontario. We had a provincial leader's retreat for an organization that I am a part of (I am the MB Provincial Leader).

I did pick Masoli in my fantasy to make sure they did not win!

https://www.cflnewshub.com/cfl-news/hard-conversations-following-winnipegs-season-opener-win/?feed_id=1834&_unique_id=62a8b6e4cbb65

Found a small error  Cheesy

Quote from the article
Quote
Marc Liegghio was not terrible in this game, going two for two on field-goal attempts (both being between 20-29 yards) but it was the play after Prukop scored the go-ahead touchdown that will bring about some of those hard conversations as Prukop missed the point-after (which should be a gimme). Missing that point-after would position the Ottawa Red Blacks within striking distance, where a field goal could now win the game.

Should be Liegghio that missed the point after.

Otherwise good article!

Very Good!
As the article moved toward the middle, you seemed to get very comfortable and the story became more compelling.  The last paragraph raising questions about the next game was bang -on.

Just a comment, about a couple of the opening paragraphs......Were there a couple of "run - on" sentences?  I had to stop and re-read.  Just my opinion, and that coming from a butcher of grammar, spelling  and "run-on" sentences!!!


Congrats!  Keep up the good work!

It's learning as I go.

Quite literally, I applied for the job, but they already had a Bomber guy. That guy dropped off. I got an email asking it I wanted to do it. Then I got an email with a user name, a password, and a 7 page document on how to use the publishing site. That's it.

didn't see the whole BLM clip as I don't use Twitter....but the quote in writing only stated they need to keep their heads up as they prepare for a road game to Ottawa.    Calgary gave it their best shot and the Bombers simply played better football and were the best team.....that coming with 6 regular impact players injured and coming off a short week against Edmonton!!    Best game of the season so far IMHO and we'll likely see more of the same between these two teams in their 3rd tilt!

didn't see the whole BLM clip as I don't use Twitter....but the quote in writing only stated they need to keep their heads up as they prepare for a road game to Ottawa.    Calgary gave it their best shot and the Bombers simply played better football and were the best team.....that coming with 6 regular impact players injured and coming off a short week against Edmonton!!    Best game of the season so far IMHO and we'll likely see more of the same between these two teams in their 3rd tilt!

You should be able to watch a Twitter video without having a Twitter account, I believe.

I agree, best game of the season so far!

Swing and a miss... but take comfort in the fact that virtually everybody got it wrong this weekend. The underdogs ruled league wide. Hamilton came into the game prepared after the bye, that's normally what happens and well Winnipeg unfortunately was looking forward to time off and it seems the defense started the bye week a little too soon.

Hey Donny!

Interested in a historical angle for your next article?  How about the questionable playoff record of CFL teams that have won 15+ games in the regular season?



There?s been some bad mojo associated with 15+ win teams over the years.

2019 TiCats.  15-3.  Lost in the Grey Cup to Winnipeg.
2016 Stamps.  15-2-1.  Lost in the Grey Cup to Ottawa.
2009 Alouettes.  15-3.  Won the Grey Cup but needed the infamous ?too many men? penalty to do it.
1995 Stamps.  15-3.  Lost in the Grey Cup to Baltimore (who were also 15-3 to be fair).
1994 Stamps.  15-3.  Lost to BC in the Western Final.
1993 Stamps.  15-3.  Lost to Edmonton in the West Final.
1989 Eskimos.  16-2.  Lost to Saskatchewan in the West Final. 

Since the League went to an 18 game regular season the only 15+ win teams to hoist the Cup were the 1996 Argos, the 1997 Argos, the 2009 Alouettes (barely), and the 2014 Stamps.  In other words, CFL teams with 15+ win seasons are a questionable 4-6 in winning the Grey Cup since the League went to an 18 game regular season.

No Bomber fan should be thinking the threepeat is a given ? I sure as heck am not.  Given the history of 15+ win teams I?m wondering what kind of odds the bookmakers will be offering on the Bombers opponents.  Might have to invest in some Happiness Insurance.


That bad history is why I'm thinking a key to the game for the Bombers this weekend will be to dominate early and not let up.  Score early, score often, smother the Lions' offence, and have the game firmly in hand by the end of the third quarter - or earlier.  If this thing comes down to a last second field goal for the Bombers win I have no doubt that the winds of history will push that football wide left.



Thoughts?

Thanks! That will be in the end of season article (hopefully after a Grey  Cup Win).

I am not superstitious, but I learned my lesson.

I wrote about achieving 400 home wins, and they lost.

Since then I have purposely avoided mentioning any of these milestones.
