Winnipeg Blue Bombers tie up 2 free agents

The last game was a big failure for the Winnipeg Blue Bombers, unfortunately, Calgary team was better and finished the game on top.

The Calgary Stampeders will play in the Grey Cup game a third straight year after downing the Winnipeg Blue Bombers 22-14 in Sunday’s CFL West Division final. Eric Rogers led the Stampeders with three touchdown catches, including a 10-yard leaping grab late in the fourth quarter.

Despite picking up their first playoff victory in seven long years, it could still be an off-season of change for the Winnipeg Blue Bombers.

Less than 24 hours after suffering a season-ending 22-14 loss to the Calgary Stampeders in the Western Division Final, the Winnipeg Blue Bombers gathered at Investors Group Field on Monday for what is known as “garbage bag day” to clean out their lockers and answer questions about not fulfilling their goal of winning a Grey Cup, as well as what’s next.

The Bombers will have nearly 40 free agents come February. Of their five starting offensive linemen only Patrick Neufeld is officially signed for next season. But according to bluebombers.com, the Bombers already have agreements in principle with both Stanley Bryant and Jermarcus Hardrick to prevent them from hitting free agency.

On defense, Adam Bighill has already hinted that the BC Lions could be his landing spot for family reasons. He still owns a home in Vancouver after playing six seasons with the Lions.

Head coach Mike O’Shea is confident his team is on the right track.

“I think we’ve given the fans over the last few years something they can be proud of on the field, and given them some excitement,” O’Shea said. “I know for a lot of fans, that isn’t enough.”

106th  GREY CUP will begin next week. The next game is scheduled for Monday, November 26th, Calgary Stampeders vs Ottawa Redblacks, the game starts at 1:00 AM EET.

At some point, the negotiation between the Winnipeg Transit and city authorities didn’t work. The city is backing out of contract negotiations with Winnipeg bus drivers, warning a strike is likely. The previous agreement expired on Jan. 12. The union represents more than 1,400 transit operators and maintenance workers at Winnipeg Transit. It appears there will not be a transit strike in Winnipeg. The City and the Amalgamated Transit Union say they have rea...

Speeding

To make matters worse, police say he continued to speed through the zone on Highway 16 while...

Who likes to be stuck in traffic? I guess, no none, but that is what you have to deal with in a big city. There are certain streets and neighborhoods you know you always will be stuck in traffic, so, naturally, people try to plan their routes avoiding such roads. What can be worse than downtown traffic with all the cars and traffic lights, well… try the whole West End with all the electricity down. A large power outage in Winnipeg's West End had thousands...
