Remember this is a forum where anyone can look, and take a screenshot. I won't take the comments down at this point because considering the wall collapse and the tenure of the posters commenting, there is fair comment in there, but IMHO some of it might cross the line.

I know its just Hamilton but you make a good point. The Oline and Muamba seem to slowly get better every game this season. (Muamba will be great one day and I havn't been patient with him this year) The biggest difference is that a starting CFL QB played tonite for the Bombers. Thats whats been missing the most (and a good Off Coord). I also told my buddy yesterday that Simpson needs 20-25 touches a game and he will do special things. The prob is that the D plays better with a lead and the O plays better when they can run the ball with a lead but they havn't had any leads this year.
Its one game but nice win, lets pull off three in a row and put some heat on the Esks.
Just picked up two single tickets for the Hamilton game, first live game for us in over a year... me and m'boy sitting on the 50 yard line...I think the two of us can turn this around!
Report from the 50 yard line: What a blast! Buck was poised, mobile and made great decisionsl. Nice to see all the receivers contribute, including Poblah. The D finally played the way they were supposed to. Muamba and Sears are very athletic and look like future all stars. Overall, the team looked very disciplined and, well, professional.
Highlight of the night for me: using the troughs one last time. I really miss them at MTS centre and fervently hope they have them in the new stadium!
Anyways best complete game, finally Simpson broke out, because of the good early completions, made the defense back off. It is still only Hamilton, and the play calling sometimes made me scratch my head. That screen to Denmark with one other receiver to block did NOT work, never did. Didn't stop them from trying like 6 times
Ever wonder why a 33K stadium will cost $190M in Winnipeg and a 33K stadium in Regina will cost $275M.
Ever hear of construction inflation? It generally runs 5% - 10% per year, generally much higher than the inflation rate. Regina is starting their stadium 3 years after Winnipeg. That would add another $30 - 40 million on to the cost just for constructing an identical stadium alone. As it is the labor market is tighter in Sasky which probably means higher labor costs. Then if you look at the concept of their proposed stadium, it features a building which is nearly entirely covered. I'm sure that awning and slightly upgraded features will bring the cost to its final figure - $80 million more than the Bombers' stadium.
Best to come overprepared, especially if you're going to be sitting in one spot for 3 and 1/2 hrs. I pulled out the long johns lol and wore my winter jacket and gloves and my legs still felt a little cold by the end but not too bad. Maybe I should have worn my ski pants as well!
Announced crowd of 26,500 but about 23 - 24,000 in attendance due to the weather and fan apathy over Bombers terrible season. Still a very solid show of support.
Concerned with Bombers poor red zone production in the first two and half quarters. Need to get 7 and not 3 on those drives boys! Still a good showing and a well-deserved victory as the team dominated on both sides of the ball.
Team listened to me and ran the ball 20 - 25 times this game. Simpson was great!
While I'm happy with the offense in general and Buck in particular, I'll keep in mind this same Ticat team gave up over 400 yards passing to Joey Elliott and the Bombers a month ago. We'll see how consistent and good this offense can be against a good team (the Argos) next week.
