Bomber's Mike Kelly Arrested & Also Fired

Post by Winnipeg » Thu Dec 17, 2009 1:34 pm

According to TSN.......Winnipeg Blue Bombers head Coach Mike Kelly was arrested Thursday morning and charged with assault and harassment following a domestic dispute.

The Winnipeg Free Press is reporting that Police in Bridgeport, Pennsylvania responded to a disturbance at Kelly's home at 11:03am local time.

According to the report, the other person involved in the incident is Kelly's former girlfriend Andrea Peterson. The Police report says that Peterson had a cut on her lip along with redness on her neck and an additional cut on her finger along with bruises on her face.

Kelly was released under his own recognizance. He would not comment on the incident to the Free Press.

Blue Bombers chairman Ken Hildahl did speak to the Free Press, however he reserved judgment on the incident.

“At this point, what we'll be looking to do is get all the facts surrounding the incident in Philadelphia," said chairman Ken Hildahl in a team statement. "We willl deal with it at that point.”

Under Kelly Winnipeg finished the season at 7-and-11 and out of the playoffs.

The incident occurred on the same day that longtime Bombers' President and Chief executive officer Lyle Bauer was resigning his post after 10 years on the job.

The team's board of governors was set to meet later this week to discuss a full time replacement for Bauer along with deciding on the fate of Kelly who was highly criticized by the fans and the media in Winnipeg this past season.

While I'm disappointed to read something like this..."Why Am I Not Surprised"?

I doubt that the Bombers will wait for the court outcome. I'm sure we will read somewhere soon that because of the team "taking another direction"...Kelly will be let go. That will be their excuse.

If this report is true I hope the Bombers dismiss Coach Kelly immediately. High profile sport personnel must realize that they are role models and they are obligated to be respectable citizens. So sad. :(

I wish all a Merry Christmas and a Happy 2010.

The Blue Bomber board is meeting tonight instead of "later this week"... WFP/Sun/CJOB reporting Kelly won't last the night as HC.

CFL.ca asked at the beginning of the season if Kelly is a genius or a madman. I guess that the answer is clear now.

He's off to the big house where they also handle things internally.
Contrary to popular belief, the most dangerous animal is not the lion or tiger or even the elephant. The most dangerous animal is a shark riding on an elephant, just trampling and eating everything they see.

I guess with two head coaching vacancies now, we can pretty much kiss DC Greg Marshall goodbye. :smackhead:

Too bad - he did a pretty awesome job last year.

No, when I made the comment it was true. He refused to resign. A circus is one thing...but what he allegedly did, and based on reports he probably did, he had to go. At least the Bomber brass showed some balls.

Ok ArgoDave.. I'm going to give you the straight goods that come from one my reliable sources. The Argos staged that domestic dispute to influence the Bomber brass to fire Kelly so that they could scoop him up to become the new head coach of the Argos. :good:

You heard it here first my friend. Keep it under your hat. Shhhhhhhhhh... :cowboy:
