Lovely article, indeed. He claims that he's spoken to guys who played in Winnipeg, but he won't name names (gee...it's a good thing no one knows he's talking about Shane Doan), who say that they hated it in Winnipeg and that the conditions in 1996 were terrible, and nothing has changed. Also a huge shock that a Quebecker would rather play in Quebec than in Winnipeg. And there were no players who hated playing in Quebec??? Please!
This is going to be the stigma that will happen if the team comes back. That being said, Detroit is the anal sphincter of North America, and guys line up to play there. If you win, players will happily come.
There are a few things that get me riled up...but at the top of that list is people who shred Winnipeg without knowing anything about it.
I wish my Gramps would have lived to see one more Bomber Grey Cup...and I'm 40 years old and I am not sure if I'll live to see one more Bomber Grey Cup.
