Presented by: Full disclosure: variations on the theme of this Winnipeg Blue Bombers season preview has been written by yours truly for both daily newspapers in this town and on this site every year now dating back to the 1990s. That admission out of the way, let’s move on with some basics before we go further: the Bombers Grey Cup championship drought is now past a quarter century – dating back, officially, to November 25, 1990. And it will remain looming as a backdrop whenever the ...

Presented by: Year after year, it’s been the same story for the Winnipeg Blue Bombers. As regular – and as annoying and painfully predictable – as a trip to the dentist. Yes, the Bombers and Calgary Stampeders have met 20 times in the last nine seasons, with the guys in blue and gold exiting on 17 of those occasions with their faces numb, their gums hemorrhaging and their mouths stuffed full of gauze. So as much as they’ll tell you Friday night’s home opener against the Stamps is a new ...

VANCOUVER – It looked the same, felt the same, and finished the same. And in the process, some members of the Winnipeg Blue Bombers will be living the nightmare of last year’s West Semifinal – a game they vowed to put in the rearview mirror – all over again. The Bombers blew a 42-27 fourth-quarter lead against the Lions – they were up 19 in last year’s playoff game – before falling 45-42 Friday night at B.C. Pace in a game that was part track meet, part slugfest, and featured a sprinkling ...

Presented by: They are the expected talking points that surround a team off to a comme çi, comme ça start and which has both teased and disappointed through the first month of the Canadian Football League season. The Winnipeg Blue Bombers are 2-2 heading into Thursday’s home date with the Montreal Alouettes, and under the microscope for any number of reasons, not the least of which are a botched fake-punt attempt last week, a defence that is getting lit up for ‘explosion’ plays, and an ...

Presented by: OTTAWA – Matt Nichols is standing in front of row reporters in the bowels of T.D. Place here in the nation’s capital, dutifully answering every question with respect and a level of thoughtfulness. There isn’t a hint of bravado with the Winnipeg Blue Bombers quarterback. No bold proclamations or boasts in a straightforward session that lasts just over three minutes. It’s what we’ve come to expect now from Nichols, who has gone from Drew Willy’s back-up early last summer to ...

Presented by: HAMILTON – It’s been the same message from the Winnipeg Blue Bombers all week. Play. Rewind. Repeat. Play. Rewind. Repeat… No, the Bombers will not take the Hamilton Tiger-Cats lightly, even if they are an 0-6 squad undergoing one of those in-season makeovers that reminds everyone of, oh, the Bombers circa four-five years ago. They’ve dumped their defensive coordinator, Jeff Reinebold. They’ve parachuted in long-time NFL/NCAA coach, June Jones, as the new assistant head ...

Presented by: It was, admittedly, a hanging curveball right over the heart of the plate. And Andrew Harris dug in, swung from his heels and absolutely, positively crushed the pitch into the stratosphere. The Winnipeg Blue Bombers had just completed their final walk-through practice in advance of Thursday’s West Division showdown with the unbeaten Edmonton Eskimos and Harris – the workhorse running back – was answering all the questions fired at him by a small gathering of reporters.
