In Hamilton, would you really replace Taaffe with either Bellefeuille or Creehan? It looks like the only option there would be Bob O'Billovich but he should be focusing on his general manager duties to make that team better in the future. In Winnipeg, who are you going to replace Berry with? Greg Marshall? Yikes! It is better to wait until the end of the season before making these kinds of changes IMO.

What's wrong with Marshall? I mean, he's been in the running for HC jobs in the CFL.


Just because he has been in the running for HC jobs in the CFL, it doesn't mean that he would be a good head coach. He is a decent defensive co-ordinator but I have always had a gut feeling about him that he isn't head coaching material. The Bombers are better off sticking with Berry for the rest of this season IMO.


Ravi, are you referring to Doug Berry or Rich Stubler?


Berry has control. Stubler has Uther over his shoulder.

What I said was 100% accurate and still is.


So, you are the guy following Berry around trying to take his pulse to see if he's still alive? :wink:

Berry should stay for another round. The team has been decimated with injuries, and even tough that is no excuse, the GM has had his fair part in this by not bringing any competition into training camp. Fat, unmotivated players=Injuries and poor play. I am curious to see how they perform against Montreal. They played average last week, the D played well but the offence did nothing. Roberts looks washed up and droppsy, which is probably because he is not used to touching the ball. He did make a few good plays when they didn't run him right up the middle. Duh. Who is the Offensive Coordinator. Perhaps that is what needs to change. I'll take Greg Marshalls D and Berry as HC, and turf the Offensive Coordinator and Special Teams Coach.

So what does that mean for the new Staduim with Asper coming in? Just curious.

Cheers,

ok now every body pull them selfs from under that rock where you have been hiding.
berry is going to be here for a while yet, and as for asper taking over the team thats still a pipe dream of his making.
berry has 3 years left and the team is not about to buy him out of it.
so if you call your selfs a bomber fan, then just stop jumping on and of the wagon, find a good seat and hang around.
there will always be good times and bad.
and yea i know that nows the real bad but so what, bet you'll be there when things get good and call your selfs true blue fans, so hold on it's going to be a rough road to travel but we'll get there, may be not this year or the next but we will get there.
so if you want to call your self a fan then just belive in the team. :helmet: :fb: :canada:

I Believe In Harvey Dent.

I don't believe in the Bombers this season. Well I can believe that they might win one more game and go 2-16 and surprise us all but that's it.

They scored 1 point in the first half last game.

1.

ONE.

How the bloody frak do you only score ONE point in a half? Oh wait, Winnipeg.

Why the personal shot? Argue the point and not the poster otherwise your argument is moot.

All I'm saying is, if Doug Berry goes off on a player/ coach he is vilified by some here, if Stubler does the same thing these same complainers are mute on the issue and in some cases ignore the topic to take a personal shot at the person mentioning the topic. Case in point.

What point was in that nonsense about "he farts gold and poops diamonds"??? And the other crap as well?

My reply was just as nonsensical as your entire post. [highlight=#FFFF00]It was a Troll for an angry response, you got what you wanted, the chance to berate me publically.
[/highlight] You still can't handle criticism of your team eh? I've told you before Bob, you gotta stop taking what people say about your team personally. You wouldn't last 1 season as a Argo fan.

BBBob wrote:All I'm saying is, if Doug Berry goes off on a player/ coach he is vilified by some here,


He has a long history of doing it, he's no rookie HC like Stubs. Berry is way past the "cutting him some slack" stage, Stubs isn't IMHO.

Not true, it has been commented on by Argo fans, perhaps not so much here.

BBBob wrote: and in some cases ignore the topic


Your original quoted post wasn't a topic, it was a rant. It got the reply it deserved.

Inhaling sawdust is a personal shot? It's a JOKE! I know what you used to do for a living. For you it would be an occupational hazard you used to deal with.

**Moderator comment: leave the crap from other boards where it belongs, on the other board, thanks.
