2010 MANITOBA BISONS FOOTBALL THREAD
The 2009 thread is [HERE].
Training camp just started for the Herd. There is the usual list of retruning players and new recruits. And, as usual, loads of Bomber fans who say "This is the year I'll actually make it out to a Bison game." Do it this year!
It seems most people see the Bisons as being in a tight fight for the 3rd and 4th places this year. At Gobisons.ca there are a load of pre-season stories:
- Canada West/Shaw TV sign two-year renewal - The TV schedule is at the link.
Bison Football announce commitment of seven local players - Included were two players coming back to Winnipeg after having been recruited by the Evil Monkeys. And Chris Walby's boy is coming back from the US.
Bison Football announce commitment of nine national players - They have a bumper crop of junior football recruits, as usual.
2010 Bison Football Training Camp begins with 88 players - There are 47 returning players and 41 new ones. The complete list is in the story, along with a training camp schedule.
