So it wasn't LaPo's fault? What excuse will bomber brass say this week?

Can you imagine how bad that game would've been if Lapo was still coach. Whew! Dodged a bullet there.

Zoinks. Forgot the game was on, tuned in in the 3rd quarter when it was 35-0. What a crazy-bad game. The Bombers haven't been shut out since '67, when the Leafs last won the cup - that was a LOOOONG time ago. That game was 53-0, so I guess they can take some solace in the fact that it wasn't their worst shut-out.

Do you really believe that Lapo would have done worse?

He was obviously going to be fired eventually, but he was never the real problem. I think if he was running it, we would have still lost, but it wouldn't have been as horrid.

We clearly replaced a mediocre coach with a horrible one.

I'm at a loss for words

I didn't see the whole game cause I was doing some work, but I caught portions and am now just catching up on post game chatter and what the media has been saying, and it's just hysterical.

I remember in 2010 thinking, when Mack and LaPo were brought in "this is going to be the start of something good"

And

"no way we can get worse than last year with these guys (referring to Kelly era)"


And now I don't know if I trust my thoughts

Haha thanks man. This post actually cheered me up from the shock of seeing the beatdown score. I feel bad for all my buddies that went to the game and made the trip out there.

Actually, I feel bad for all bomber fans that made the trip. The bars in Regina will certainly be making some good coin tonight

Bottoms up fellow bomber fans

Nice to see the marked improvement realized today. Mack is working to a plan... it's easy to see.

We have not won a Grey Cup since 1990.

I'm so sick of this incompetence.

True North needs to by the Bombers.

Boys, say what you want but it's tough to win in this league without a top QB, and nothing against Elliot. We will be mediocre until we can find one, and trust me once Calvillo leaves MTL they will suck for years to come. As for the rest of the team, I got nothing to say, except that Special Teams Coach Walters should have been fired last year and if not at the end of this year, he is a joke, might as well sign Wade Miller to be the ST coach. Man, I wish I was a bandwagon jumper right now, but Im not so Go Blue! Go 6-3 to end the year and theyll get in, the sked looks favorable but only if they can turn the corner.

No, just, no

Bombers have been a community team forever, and should stay that way.

And, Ive never played football so I wouldnt know, but does anyone else think the team was worked to hard in practice this week with the upbeat prackies and running manmakers. Im not making excuses but I know this is a tough sport where guys need their rest, could Burke working them so hard have been a factor? Any football people out with an answer?

LOL.. This team is broken... in all aspects.. Two BASIC kickoff returns fumbled in a row. 52-0.

Honestly, this was the most amazing game of football i've ever seen in my life, just in a different way. By the end of it, all 14 of us were were legitimately laughing at the spectacle.. what an unfortunate start to Burke's tenure..

Where to go from here?

GO BLUE!

I completely forgot about the game. When I looked up the score I stopped breathing. Absolutely pathetic. LaPo probably put his foot through his tv seeing that. He gets blamed for the teams overall crappyness, gets fired and the team goes out and lays a greasy coiler. Lapo should sue them for wrongful dismissal, lol.

Instead of firing LaPo, Mack should have took the responsibility and tendered his resignation, instead of trying to pass the buck (pierce) and blame the coach.

Start over. Team and organization is lost in the woods. LaPo was the latest scapegoat, but he wasn't the one to rescue the team either so it hardly matters. So fire everybody of relevance, rebuild the culture from the ground up. It's totally evident that many of the players aren't taking the team or their coaches seriously. And really, why should they, with the constant demonstration of lack of faith in them and in their coaching staff?

Mack, clearly, has to go. But it's not just him. There needs to be a clean slate and a very careful choice of who is going to set the tone for this team going forward.
