Swaggerville??? That Was More Like Suckville!!!!
The Winnipeg Blue Bombers should be known as the Winnipeg ACES
The Saskatchewan Roughriders played the way many thought they should have been playing in coming out of the gate and manhandled the team with the best record in the CFL by a score of 27-7 on Sunday to win their 7th straight LDC. Here were the thoughts from the dressing room after starting with a happy Head Coach Ken Miller....

Make no doubt about it, this team has a long ways to go yet, but they showed everyone that they are more than capable of playing a championship calibre of football. It was the best game they played all year and while Ken Miller said he had very little to do with it, you know he had a lot to do with it. I can only wonder what Greg Marshall and Doug Berry were thinking if they watched this game today.
Here's how the Bombers take defeat. I approached Fred Reid late in the game to see if he would do a post-game interview for the CKRM broadcast. He replied NO. When I asked if he was serious, he called over their PR flak who promptly told me the team wasn't doing any post-game interviews. I questioned that which made him ask who I wanted to talk to. I said Reid to which he said "He isn't talking". I asked then for the always talkative Doug Brown only to be told he isn't interested either and then re-iterated they weren't doing interviews. I'm guessing that had they been up by 20 that it would have been different. Take your football and go home with your tail between your legs much like you have for the past umpteen years.
