Aside from Stegall, Glenn and Jones weren't very good. They choked or got injured when it mattered most.

No kidding, Stegal was great, Jones had one very good season and Glenn choked any time he needed to be good.

A Season on the Brink: Bluffing with Pocket Deuces


"Consistency”. In the week leading up to last week’s game against BC, Coach LaPolice remarked that Joey Elliot need to improve on the 400+ game the previous week to identify himself as a CFL starter that could open some eyes. Unfortunately for Coach LaPolice, the nature of this comment was more a reflection of his tenure in River City that he realized.

Amazing, Lawless said today that the reason that LaPo got fired was because he was white.

Hope the racist pig gets fired

And Khari had 2 good seasons.

Why am I not surprised. Another **** up by the dynamic duo (Mack and LaPo). Mack needs to go at the end of the year. Greaves sucks, this hurt our O-Line so bad.

I'm already digging the approach of Burke as head coach, instilling discipline, professionalism, and fight into these boys. It was all to friendly and casual under Lapolice, and the players didn't seem to care about winning or losing as much as playing jokes on each other during practice. I know there's a backlash over the Lapolice firing, but c'mon, do hard working, blue-collar fans really want to spend their hard earned money on a team that doesn't give it their all?

Thumbs up from me on this decision.

Well they obviously don't if he doesn't say something

But either way, I don't get why you wouldn't start the guy in his strongest position. That's just taking the easy way out IMO.

I think its also a good indication about how inept LaPo really was. It's refreshing to see Burke's approach where accountability is key, LaPo may be a good coach one day but lacked the experience to be the head man.

Maybe it's just me...but wasn't he the offensive coordinator under Doug Berry or Dave Ritchie or something? Seems like he's been with the organization forever.

I think the blame is a 3-way split between Mack, LaPo, and Labatte himself for not standing up for himself.

Yes Lapo was an assistant coach for the Blue Bombers a few years before he was named HC. The HC at the time was Ritchie.

No argument here, Mack will be gone at the end of the season.

The triad of failure will have only frosted highlights Buchko left to can.

On the basis of his win/loss record as a head coach zero games into his tenure? Are you all Rider fans or do you just support the bombers after they win games?

I'm personally, as many of you are, not happy with what's transpired over the weekend with LaPo being fired

He was such an awesome guy, I felt since he was so young (early 40s) he had a lot of room for improvement. It would have been nice to at least give him the rest of the year, especially when things seemed to be on a turn after we played a close game with the best team in the league

really bad move in that regard


However, I have always been a huge fan of Tim Burke, and I am very excited to see what he does. I really hope he can turn the ship around and be one of the bright spots in an otherwise tough season for fans. He's someone who I've always admired. I hope he is given a fair shot at the HC seat into next year as well, even if he can't turn any lead into gold.

Lapolice has had brutal play calling for most of his tenure as the bombers coach.
Joe Mack has done really nothing but negative things to this team
The labatte nom signing, that whole johnson fiasco.

Now i can see why jovon was pissed, after this latest labatte story
