Timeline of East-West relations - pre-modern era (pre-1950)

Timeline of East-West relations - pre-modern era (pre-1950)

1909 October 25 - The team from Fort William, Ontario (modern day Thunder Bay) travelled to Winnipeg to play the Winnipeg Rowing Club. The teams played 13 men per side in the first half and Winnipeg loaned a player to Fort William so that they could play a full 14 men per side in the second half. The Winnipeg Rowing Club defeated Fort William by a score of 20-15.   1911  - As champions of the west, the Calgary Tigers issued a challenge to play for the Grey Cup. The Canadian Rugby Union (CRU) denied the challenge as the Calgary team was not a member of a football union that had paid for the right to issue a challenge for the Grey Cup. CRU rules stated that member unions had to pay a $50 fee at the annual meeting of the CRU to be eligible to compete...

Reliving the Past - the first season at Winnipeg Stadium

On the eve of the playoffs, Winnipeg Blue Bombers Head Coach George Trafton was faced with a difficult decision. Who should be the Bombers starting quarterback? Of course there is Indian Jack Jacobs - he led the WIFU in passing with 1924 yards and a pass efficiency rating of 80.2. Then there is Canadian pivot Geoff Crain - he had success in his first start against the Saskatchewan Roughriders. Finally there is Joe Zaleski - he started the final three games of the regular season. In the end, Trafton went with the most important stat - Wins and Losses. Zaleski was named the starter after going 2 and 1 as a starter. In somewhat of a surprise, Jack Jacobs' 3 and 5 record meant that he was relegated to third string quarterback as the playoffs commenced

Reliving the Past - the first season at Winnipeg Stadium (Part two of three)

Reliving the Past - the first season at Winnipeg Stadium (Part two of three)

The talk in town heading into the double header weekend with the Saskatchewan Roughriders was all about the lack of a running game in Winnipeg. The Bombers were coming off their first win after three straight losses but the Bombers were fortunate to win that one.

There were a couple of theories about the lack of a running game:

Jack Jacobs had to pass most of the time because the Blue Bombers just don't have a running game. The last solid running back the Bombers had was Bob Sandberg who played in Winnipeg 1947-1949. The Bombers just might have a running game but we will never find out as long as Jacobs keeps throwing the ball. Some people even went so far as to claim that Jacobs does not know how to call a diversified offence and he has become predictable. It seems that when a pass was called the receivers would...

Reliving the Past - the first season at Winnipeg Stadium (Part one of three)

As we enter the 2011 CFL season, the Winnipeg Blue Bombers embark on their final season at Winnipeg Stadium (a.k.a. the House that Jack Built) it seems appropriate to revisit the first season in 1953. Jack of course is Indian Jack Jacobs, the Blue Bombers' star quarterback 1950-1954.

The year is 1953. The Winnipeg Blue Bombers are coming off their most impressive regular season performance during the Jack Jacobs years - the Bombers finished 12-3-1 in 1952. Unfortunately, Winnipeg lost in the Western Finals to the Edmonton Eskimos, two games to one. The poor finish resulted in many questions about the Winnipeg Football club.

Were the players "Fair Weather Players", incapable of playing football in the bitter chill of the autumn air? OR. Were the Edmonton Eskimos correct in their assessment that Jack Jacobs was predictable and more importantly, stoppable?

The Blue Bombers opened the 1953 training camp with a roster of 55 players including 12 imports. The coaching...
