Blue Bombers Hall of Fame Inductees

 

PLAYER: ROBERT GORDON

He was known as Robert, or ‘Flash’ or ‘Bobby Gorgeous’ during his days with the Bombers, and will always be remembered by fans and teammates as a reliable receiver who was popular both in the community and in the locker room.
Robert Gordon spent six seasons with the Blue Bombers (1999-2004) and finished his career ranked 11th on the club’s all-time receiving yardage list with 4,474 yards on 288 receptions, adding 20 touchdowns.
He began his CFL career with the Ottawa Rough Riders in 1991 and after the 1992 season joined the Toronto Argonauts (1993-94), the B.C. Lions (1995), the Rough Riders a second time in 1996, the Edmonton Eskimos in 1997 after they selected him in the Ottawa dispersal draft. He then landed with the Bombers after spending 1998 with the Arena League’s Orlando Predators.
In Winnipeg he joined a receiving corps that featured, at various times, Milt Stegall, Geroy Simon, Albert Johnson III, Markus Howell, Arland Bruce and Jamie Stoddard. Gordon led the Bombers in receptions in the 2000 season, pulling in 89 receptions for 1,395 yards and seven touchdowns – all career bests — while being named an East Division All-Star. Gordon was also a divisional all-star in 1999, following a season in which he finished with 59 receptions for 863 yards and four touchdowns.
Gordon has appeared in five Hollywood movies – ‘Any Given Sunday’, ‘We Are Marshall’, ‘Invincible’, ‘The Game Plan’ and ‘Second String’ – and has worked for World Wrestling Entertainment as Senior Manager of Talent Development. He has also coached, and trains kids as a strength and conditioning coach.

BUILDER: BOB MILES

Count Bob Miles among the many who have served the Winnipeg Football Club so capably over the years as executives and members of the board of directors. What Miles did during his days on the board, and as club president, during the difficult times in the mid-to-late 1990s and into the new millennium were instrumental in keeping the franchise afloat.
Miles joined the WFC board in 1992 and then began his time with the executive in 1996. The Bombers financial difficulties had been building for a number of years and when Miles was elected club president in 1999, it was in serious trouble. It was through his leadership that the club not only survived, but begin to rebuild its reputation on and off the field. He played a mammoth role in the long-term restructuring plan titled ‘2000 and Beyond’ that saw the club remain as a community-based organization, but with some significant changes to its structure, including a paid leadership of the club that would report to the board of directors.
Those decisions were critical in helping the franchise not only erase its deficit, but helped establish a stable footing that would ultimately lead to the construction of Investors Group Field and the healthy operation it is today.
Miles’ family have been Bombers season-ticket holders for over 45 years, and he is currently President of MAG Consulting Ltd and has participated on the Board of Advisors for two Winnipeg-based private businesses. He previously worked for CIBC Winnipeg, James Richardson International and PricewaterhouseCoopers. He has also been active in his role in the community, serving as President of the Canadian Cancer Society in Toronto, Director of Juvenile Diabetes Foundation and Director of Manitoba Chamber Orchestra.
