both the Stamps and the Elks were perennial powerhouses in the CFL in years past and the Stamps started falling off the year we beat them in the WSF in 2019.    Up until then the Stamps virtually owned us but then we signed Zach and he has captained our team ever since to being a perennial contender.    In pro sports it seems to go in cycles......our Bombers were the laughing stock of the CFL for many years until we under new management and coaching eventually turned our team around.
Our days in the sun may start waning after a few years and likely we will need to start a rebuilding process.    We are not the number one ranked team this season falling to third just behind BC.    Enjoy it while we still can!!

Make the right moves this off-season and a rebuild won't be necessary, #1 priority re-sign Walters to continue on with the current program.

This one has me thinking! No word on this as of yet. They resigned MOS and I would have thought Walters would be next or at least close. The word (if you can believe what you hear) out of Regina is that the Riders may be looking for a new GM after the season ends and they all seem to like Walters. I doubt he would jump ship unless he wants a very very challenging opportunity as the Riders seems to be in a downward spiral but who knows.

I would like to see the Bombers lock Walters up for the next 3-5 years. I do not believe that MOS is ready for this role just yet.

Have no respect for Awe hes a dirty player and trys to injure other players. You can play tough without that stuff

Wow, this hit was nuts.  (Just watching now for 1st time)

When everyone watching live on TV and probably the stadium instantly says in their head "penalty", then you know you've done something wrong as a D player.

That type of hit is the one where those little hexagon things on the crown of the helmet would have helped.  But it would appear Spieker doesn't have one.

Good for command to upgrade it to 25.  That's the first "level 2" UR I've seen in a loooong time.

Again with "cerebral" Awe turning into a serial killer on the field.  Cost his team 25 this time.  I'm a bit surprised he didn't get ejected?  But I guess the rules don't work that way for in-whistle play.

This is the same ref's that didn't see the hit on ZC from Robertson (Saskatchewan).    Brutal, hoping they aren't going to ref the playoff's and Grey Cup game.

To be fair to this (bad) ref crew, they did throw the nylon instantly on the hit (you can see it on screen); the only thing command did was upgrade it to 25.  I'm pretty sure only command can do those upgrades.

Fajardo is the master of the 5 yard pass....when you need 10.

2Q2:03 Cody 5 yard underthrow, is guaranteed to get a bunch of "Cody sucks can't throw long" complaints out of Riderfans forum  :P

Like they always say, Cody looks like he's using all his might like the ball is a shot-put to get it to go a mere 35 yards.  Other QBs look like they're just flicking their wrist and get 55 yards.  Must drive Maas crazy.  You'd think he'd have learned by now?  Maas a slower learner?

Ben Major getting another punch to the face.  Dude can't catch a break!  He's the most beat-up on CFL ref bar none.  He was screaming expletives at those players.

He's like: This ain't worth the 2-4 and pack of smokes the CFL pays me each week.

I didn't catch the Stamps game, aprox. when did the Awe incident occur?

Stamps sure are bad

Ya, it's not so much that MTL is good, it's that CGY is playing so horrendously bad.  Every unit of every phase takes turns stinking.  No one shines.  Carey looks just plain bad.

Maybe the CGY coordinators need to go.  The calling is weak and stale.  And CGY taking dumb penalties all over the place; very un-CGY like.  Maybe Dickenson The Greater needs to go, or go upstairs.  Killam might breathe new life into the team as HC.

1Q1:35, or approx 31mins into the broadcast.

One of the biggest, brutal hits this year, I'd say.  Hand it to Spieker for immediately going after his fumble after the hit.  Young kid is tough as nails.  Might look good in WPG one day.

Holy smokes, the LT #56 Weldon in CGY is putrid.  I think he was responsible for fully half the pressures and sacks on Maier.  You can't win games with tackles as bad as that (SSK has this problem too).

I, for one, have enjoyed the downfall of the Stampeders. ;D

Thanks, that was AWEful, I would think Awe is in line for some supplemental discipline for his non-compliance this season, perhaps a suspension, but no announcement of last week's disciplinary action yet.

No doubt.  ABC.  I love seeing Dickenson  get worse year after year after year... It's time for him to go (maybe upstairs).  I do feel a bit sorry for the CGY fans though.  A bit.  Then again, they did have it so well for, what, a decade?

CFL fines Stamps LB Micah Awe the max for his high hit on the Als Cole Spieker.

Awe's 4th fine of the season, all for high hits.
8th fine overall, by my count:

High hit x5
Leading w/crown of helmet x2
"Reckless & dangerous tackle" x1

He should have been suspended, fines are not getting through to him.
