I think it is possible you may have missed the point of the Lingerie Football League.

I think it's possible you just hit the nail on the head.

Now I know why they call it the Banjo Bowl.

From Wikipedia:

The "Banjo Bowl" moniker was coined by Blue Bombers board member David Asper in early 2004, inspired by an infamous comment made by Bombers placekicker Troy Westwood in the week prior to a 2003 Western Division Semi-final game between the two teams. Westwood was quoted in the media as saying that people from Regina were "a bunch of banjo-pickin' inbreds." He later apologized half-heartedly for those comments, saying that "the vast majority of the people in Saskatchewan have no idea how to play the banjo."

Major FUBAR by Winnipeg coaching. Worth a firing in my opinion.

Call LaPolice! Bombers robbed, thanks to boneheaded call by new head coach

I feel you could argue either way. If the kick actually went out of bounds where they wanted it to, it probably would have been a good call.

Couldn't they have take a couple time count violations? push the ball back so the punter would have a bigger field to work with? They do that all the time in the nfl.

I believe it's a loss of down for a time count violation in the CFL as well as a 5 yard penalty.

I completely disagree. They were up by 1. A field goal would mean Sask would've had to come down and score a major. It's a ridiculous call in my opinion.

They absolutely had to kick a field goal, I can't believe they went for 1 or even the corner (coffin) kick, plus the Blue Bombers kicker hit 5 field goals, why not give the guy a shot. Awful coaching decision.

The Lions traded Brandon Peguese to the Ticats for futures. Weird. The guy seemed pretty good on special teams. No room for him, I guess?

With Peguese gone, they can activate Steven Doege to fill that spot on the defensive line and, since that would put us at 21 non-imports, release Joash Gesse or put him on the practice roster. Which would leave a spot for an import linebacker, if we needed one for some reason...

Yep and it was only a 42 yard field goal. If you can't trust your kicker to make a FG of that distance, he shouldn't be on the team.
