    Perreault Enstrom Kulikov Mason. Also. Agreed. Wild are a mediocre team with a great goalie... But Duby got lit up on 4 20

    There is a lot of luck that goes into winning the Grey Cup... gotta get healthy and hot at the right time. So all you really have to do is play well enough to secure a playoff spot and then hope for the best. People don't like to hear that but it is reality. As long as we're getting into the playoffs I would never fire Walters/O'Shea.

    Mini-camp info - April 24-26

    I was there today in the morning, but it was hard to come away with much info. Everybody looked roughly the same at the start. I had read Tait's preview article before going so I must admit that I focused more on some of those guys. Out of the new QBs, I thought Philip Nelson was the best. In the 7 on 7s he started with a ball in the turf on a short out to an RB, but then was on fire after that. Had a huge completion down the middle to a WR that had everyone excited. Nelson himself was fist-pumping after that one. Had some nice deep ball throws too. Lankford had a nice deep catch and beat some of the new CBs pretty handily with his speed. Washington reeled in a few short tosses. The surprise of the day for me was watching Wolitarsky more. His routes were excellent, leading to a bunch of crisp catches. I couldn't pick out much from the new DBs. Plenty still learning the game and rules, so there were a lot of receiver wins in the one-on-ones.

    D-bag Rider fans who called Chick greedy and accused him of disloyalty for not taking a pay cut are now tripping over themselves to praise him and praise themselves for loving and supporting him so much. Shameless.

    Give me a team that wins more than it loses in the regular season every time and eventually the playoffs will take care of themselves. Seriously people don't we remember what happened the last times we fired coaches because making the playoffs just wasn't good enough?

    Chick was/is an anomaly. He played at a high level despite being insulin-dependent for all his career and has deserved his accolades and retirement.

    I'm old enough to remember too many unjustified firings of coaches in the past. Cal Murphy canned after losing a playoff game in Edmonton. We always contended under Murphy, and won our share of cups too.....but the sky was falling and the panic took hold of the decision makers. Horrible decision, but in their minds "somebody has to pay". We brought in Reinbold and that was the end of a successful era. Dave Ritchie canned after we couldn't win the big one. We went 14-4, 12-6, 11-7 in the three years prior to 2004. We got off to a bad start in '04, and once again we panicked and fired a good coach. We replaced him with Jim Daley. Doug Berry took us to a cup appearance in 2007, then after making the playoff in '08 we canned him too and replace him with Mike Kelly. Paul Lapolice took us to a cup appearance in 2011, so naturally when we struggled half way through 2012, we replaced him with Tim Burke. I firmly believe that Walters and O'Shea are one the right path. We're winning more than we are losing, and we are contending for the cup. It will happen sooner if we continue to build and offer a great program with consistency. The knee jerk firing of coaches rarely works out well. PS> I'm very pleased that the Jets didn't bow to the loonies running around last summer calling for Paul Maurice's replacement. Funny how they have all disappeared.

    Why would they fire these guys? We finally are a time where players want to play for this team and the team as a whole is trending up? I wouldn't even consider firing Walters or O'Shea.

    I hope we are done with the import kick returner who can’t catch punts or play receiver spot on the roster. That’s McDuffie and a worse version in Lankford.

    From 3Downnation: Dwayne Johnson opens up about depression, says release from CFL was ‘worst time’ By Elahe Izadi Posted on April 2, 2018 by 3Down Staff // 45 Comments Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson is speaking publicly about his and his family’s struggles with depression. In an interview with the U.K.’s Express, Johnson spoke about his mother’s attempted suicide, which took place when he was 15. “Struggle and pain is real. I was devastated and depressed,” he told the outlet. “I reached a point where I didn’t want to do a thing or go anywhere. I was crying constantly.” After the interview published, Johnson tweeted that he received “tons of responses. Thank you.” “We all go thru the sludge/(expletive) and depression never discriminates,” he continued. “Took me a long time to realize it but the key is to not be afraid to open up. Especially us dudes have a tendency to keep it in. You’re not alone.” Months after her family had been evicted from their apartment, Johnson’s mother attempted suicide. She walked out of her car on a major interstate in Nashville and into oncoming traffic, with giant trucks and cars swerving out of the way. Johnson has previously revealed details about his mother’s suicide attempt. In a February Instagram post about filming a scene involving suicide in his HBO series Ballers, Johnson wrote that the moment had him reflect on “how many of us have been affected by suicide of our friends, family. Struggle and pain is real. We’ve all been there on some level or another.” “I grabbed her and pulled her back on the gravel shoulder of the road,” Johnson wrote about his mother’s incident. “What’s crazy about that suicide attempt is that to this day, she has no recollection of it whatsoever. Probably best she doesn’t.” He added: “We got lucky that day when I was 15 and that ain’t always the case.” Years before he became one of the world’s wealthiest actors, Johnson pursued a football career but was beset by several injuries and was let go from the Calgary Stampeders of the Canadian Football League within a year of being signed. Soon after, his girlfriend broke up with him. “That was my absolute worst time,” he told Express. The candid comments about depression from such a successful actor, known for both his bubbly personality and tough-guy persona, brought on a wave of responses, including from advocacy organizations promoting the help they offer. The Lifeline tweeted “If you feel like you have no reason to live, call 1-800-273-TALK (8255) for help and support.” On Twitter, someone wrote: “I know it will help a lot of people to see someone so confident that also had issues with it. Myself included.” Johnson replied: “Hey man I get it . . . Stay strong and make sure you’re talking to good people about it . . . No shame in getting help and wanting to be better.” Johnson told Express that he and his mother “both healed but we’ve always got to do our best to pay attention when other people are in pain. We have to help them through it and remind them they are not alone.” – Washington Post

    To be fair they "owned" us in a pair of 3-2 games that both (?) went to OT in their building. We crushed them both times in Winnipeg. I worry about their top line but the rest of their team is subpar to us.

    Round 1: Game 5 vs. Wild

    Jets lead the series 3-1. SN 6:30 pm start time Tagline: "Land of 10,000 lakes @ Land of 100,000 lakes" Storyline: Jets come home to try and wrap up their first ever series victory in 2.0 history, without Josh Morrissey in the lineup, but possibly with Tyler Myers back again. Minnesota tries to stay alive with $196 million up in the press box (Suter and Parise for the uninformed). Quote: “No one has a problem with the first mile of a journey. Even an infant could do fine for a while. But it isn't the start that matters. It's the finish line.” ― Julien Smith, The Flinch Quote #2: "Well that was fun. Winnipeg fans seem to have made an impression! The difference is I've never had to ask you to join me. You sing loud and proud every time!" - Stacey Nattress on twitter, in response to the Minnesota anthem singer imploring fans to sing along "so they can hear us in Winnipeg". Fun fact: After Tuesday night, Connor Hellebuyck is now7-0-1 with 2 shutouts and a .949 save percentage in the next game played after giving up 5 or more goals. Fun fact #2: Hellebuyck's Vezina nomination is the third NHL award nomination for a Jet since the club re-located to Winnipeg (along with Laine's rookie nomination and Andrew Ladd's "Mark Messier leadership" nom) and only the second Jet goalie ever to be a finalist for the Vezina (Bob Essensa was the first in 1991-92 - he finished 3rd behind Patrick Roy and Kirk McLean)

    I don't honestly know. Even without a history of police run-ins I still give the cops the benefit of the doubt on this one. Nobody got shot despite an alleged assault on an officer, I'd say this ended as well as anyone could hope for. People should be suspicious of police and their powers should be checked and balanced but to assume police brutality and racial discrimination at every turn is so divisive and plain silly. That's the last I'll say on it here, this is a football forum after all

    Round 1: Game 3 @ Wild

    Tagline: "Province of Puck vs. State of Hockey" or "Whiteout vs. Blue State" Storyline: Minnesota hopes home cooking can turn around the bad taste in their mouths from 2 straight losses. Quote: "The series don't really begin until the home team loses a game" - pretty much every coach who is down 2-0 and totally outplayed, grasping at some comfort, or a broadcaster trying to keep interest in a one-sided series. Quote #2: "Starting fights in the last minute to show that you are ready to show up for the next game is so stupid. Where were you for the first 59 minutes of this game?" - Randy Turner on twitter. Fun fact: This is only the third time in the Jets' NHL existence that they have been up 2-0 in a playoff series. The two previous times, they ended up losing game 3 but ultimately winning the series. The first was 1985 against Calgary (up 2-0 at home, lost game 3 on there Macoun cross-check, gutted out a game 4 road win with no Hawerchuk and a back-up goalie in net, to take the series 3-1). The second was also Calgary, this time with 2 road wins to start (including a Thomas Steen game winner in game 2 period 2 which crossed the line after the green light came on, but was counted - yay for no replay back then), then lost game 3 at home before taking a 3-1 lead back to Cowtown, and eventually winning in 6 games. These are also the only 2 playoff series ever won by the Jets' NHL franchise (pre-Phoenix relocation). Fun fact #2: Third period shots for each team from after the last Wild goal in game one up to the next Wild goal in Game 2 (a span of 35.5 minutes) : 32-3 for the Jets (after the 2-1 Wild goal Jets outshot them 16-1 the rest of the way, then last night shots were 14-0 until five minutes left, Wild scored on only their 3rd shot of the period, Jets had 16 of their 17 third period shots by that point).

    Hopefully, that's the end of her career doing whatever the hell it is she does... Writing and tweeting trash. What a disgusting excuse of a human being with a lot of self-hatred flowing through those pasty veins. Honestly, I think she tweeted what she did to make herself feel relevant. This rebuttal by Adrienne Batra hits the nail on the head, IMO: http://torontosun.com/opinion/columnists/batra-social-justice-warrior-misses-the-boat-on-humbold And in particular, this line: "No one with a good heart is looking at this loss of life in Saskatchewan through the lens of race or gender because this loss goes beyond race, gender and politics."

    My wife was an attorney. We watched that interview a couple weeks ago where Cohen's buffoon attorney was getting grilled by Megyn Kelly. Her audience was laughing openly at his assertions that Cohen was just a good guy who just wanted to take care of the boss. When she asked him if Cohen ever threatened people, he said "I have heard that through the grapevine" which is a HILARIOUS thing for your attorney to say on national TV. After my wife was done laughing, she explained that we were looking at the attorney dumb enough to work for a guy who is dumb enough to work for Donald Trump, and that the stupid doesn't add up, it multiplies.

    Look at the teams Don Matthews won Grey Cups with... the Baltimore Stallions and the Flutie Argos. If you're firing coaches because they can't achieve that level of dominance in today's CFL, you'll never be satisfied. Outside of those teams he won one Grey Cup in five years with BC and one Grey Cup in five years with Montreal. No Cups elsewhere. To say his teams won consistently is just revisionist history. He is one of the greatest coaches in CFL history and he won five cups in 22 seasons as a head coach. I guess in those other 17 years he just forgot how to coach.

    I don't think so. They have huge structural problems and have not resolved two key shortfalls - goaltending and defence. I bet they get some top prospects this year though. Their biggest crutch is probably Chiarelli. That guy unloads more talent than anyone else. Here's an article from December outlining his failures (so far): https://oilersnation.com/2017/12/08/a-hindsight-look-at-peter-chiarellis-gruesome-trading-record/

    Will we be better or worse?

    We are Better at the QB position (Nichols and Durant and any rookie are Better than what we had last year) Status quo at RB (Possibly better as we may see looks with Harris/Demski/ Lafrance/Flanders all in motion giving defenses fits) Better at receiver ( with or without having to start 2 Canadians) though depth is suspect at this time O-line we are weaker with loss of Bond ( Still a top 3 team in terms of O-line tho...depth could be issue if we get nailed with injuries) D-line we are better even with loss of Westerman. (Being able to go all import is going to help and Corney and Ekakite are going to be better as they grow too...no concerns there) DB's are better as more depth and more experience. Heath loss if you ask me is a no big deal... Linebacking...weak last year...and still concerns this year until we see who..what..and where is on field and if scheme was issue last year or personnel. ST's...status quo...and most likely better this year as Medlock had off year and punt return was non existent for better part of the yr...so any production at all from there will make us upgraded..and our cover teams were lights out for most part and we added Fenner who is a demon This team should be a 12-6 team again and if the defense steps up at all and corrects the issues that plagued it you can maybe factor in an extra win there..possibly 2...especially if the offense keeps evolving...can't see it taking a step backward this year..so a 13-14 win season if you ask me isn't far fetched...
