WINNIPEG —Frustrated Winnipeg Blue Bombers fans shouldnt expect any more heads
to roll in the wake of the CFL teams humiliating 52-0 road loss to the
Saskatchewan Roughriders on Sunday. Chuck Foreman Jersey . Bombers board of
directors chairperson Bill Watchorn said Tuesday in a phone interview that hes
aware of the growing backlash directed at team vice-president and general
manager Joe Mack, but said that no changes to the teams front office are
expected. Mack has been on the hot seat since he fired former head coach Paul
LaPolice on Aug. 25 and replaced him on an interim basis with defensive
co-ordinator Tim Burke. Following Burkes debut in Sundays loss—the first time
the Bombers (2-7) have been held scoreless since 1969—Mack became the target
of a Facebook page called “Fire Joe Mack Petition” and a “Fire Joe Mack” Twitter
feed. As of Tuesday afternoon, the “Fire Joe Mack Petition” page had 3,686 likes
on Facebook. While Watchorn understands fans frustrations—he shared the same
emotions as he watched the game on TV —he tried to put the loss in
perspective. “One game is not a season,” Watchorn said. “Disappointing though it
may be, the board has confidence in Joe Mack, the coaches and the players and
the CEO (Garth Buchko). “I think that youll find, we hope, but I think youll
find that the performance will improve. You cant go from a team of last year to
a team of this year, with essentially the same core group although I know theres
a few who left, and say its useless. “So I would say the board has the
confidence in those people. We will do a review of football operations annually
as we always do at the end of the season.” At his regular meeting with the media
Tuesday afternoon, Burke said he didnt know about the Internet campaign to have
Mack fired. “First of all, Im not aware of it because I dont go on Facebook and,
secondly, especially now that Im in this role as a head coach, I dont read the
newspapers or watch TV, not the news, at least,” he said. But he did have a
message for fans. “Were not dead yet,” Burke said. “Were going to go out there
and give it everything weve got and we need their support.” The Bombers will get
a chance to redeem themselves Sunday afternoon when they host Saskatchewan in
the annual Banjo Bowl, but it wont be with Buck Pierce as their starting
quarterback. Burke said doctors have ruled out Pierce because hes still feeling
the effects of tearing ligaments and a muscle in his left foot July 13 in a
42-10 loss to Edmonton. Joey Elliott, who started in the Saskatchewan debacle,
gets the nod for his fourth straight start. The third-year pivot completed nine
of 19 passes for only 61 yards with one interception and was replaced by Alex
Brink in the fourth quarter. Burke said he hopes Elliotts performance was an
anomaly. “Just like everything else, one person is never to blame for such a
terrible loss so theres a lot of factors that go into it,” he said. Fans werent
pointing their fingers at Burke for the loss, seeming to give him a pass because
of the circumstances of his job promotion. The Bombers are the worst team in the
league and their 2-7 record is the direct opposite of last years mid-season
mark. Last seasons squad went on to finish 10-8 and lost the Grey Cup 34-23 to
the B.C. Lions. The blame for that flipping of records has fallen on Mack after
fans were divided on LaPolices firing the day after the team lost 20-17 to B.C.
at home. Some fans thought the close contest, and a Bomber win the week before
against Hamilton, was an indication the squad might be turning the corner. At
the press conference announcing LaPolices firing, Mack said it wasnt a snap
decision. He cited factors such as a lack of improvement in the offence, a
losing record since a year ago, undisciplined play and his thought that LaPolice
may have lost his players confidence. Mack and LaPolice were hired following the
2009 season and the firing of former head coach Mike Kelly, who also had a
Facebook page called “Fire Mike Kelly” during his 7-11 season. In Sundays
defeat, the Bombers offence—run by first-year offensive co-ordinator Gary
Crowton—only managed 102 total net yards offence, had a total of 10 first
downs and only possessed the ball for 20:54 in the 60-minute tilt. Winnipeg also
racked up 101 penalty yards, turned the ball over five times and allowed the
Roughriders (4-5) to rack up 422 total net yards offence. The victory had ended
a five-game Saskatchewan losing streak. “It was inauspicious start, lets put it
this way, Burke said of his coaching debut. “Its certainly not the way I wanted
it to go.” Same could be said for Watchorn. “My initial emotion was
embarrassment at the performance and frustration, disappointment,” Watchorn
said. “I think those three words would describe my state of mind at the time.”
Mack, who was last in the CFL as Winnipegs director of player personnel from
1984-87, wasnt made available to the media after the Labour Day Classic. A team
spokesperson said hell speak to reporters this week. Burke wasnt anticipating
changes to the roster he inherited, noting it could take three to four weeks
before any new player could learn the CFL game and the teams system. When asked
what would motivate the players if fear of losing their jobs wasnt in the
equation, Burke said it should be pride. “I hope that individual pride drives
them—pride as a group, pride as a team, pride as an individual.” Watchorn was
leaving roster decisions up to the football minds. “Any personnel moves would
have to be originating from Joe Mack and Garth Buchko, primarily Joe Mack on
football, and its their team, its their season and theyve got to deliver the
goods,” Watchorn said. Notes: Injuries will keep defensive backs Johnny Sears
and Jeremy McGee out of Sundays lineup, while veteran offensive lineman Steve
Morley was seeing a doctor to assess an injury, Burke said. Chris Doleman Jersey .J. —After waiting as
long as anyone to start season, the Atlanta Hawks combined athleticism, depth
and a stingy defence to spoil the Nets final home opener in New Jersey and to
show everyone they will contend in this lockout-shortened season. Alan Page Jersey . When something happens on
the football field and when I think of why, and I do not know, it makes me feel
uneasy, insecure and almost incompetent. http://www.nflnikeminnesotavikings.com/fran-tarkenton-jerseys
. The seventh-ranked Frenchman, playing in the Swedish capital for the first
time, put on an impressive display of serve and volley tennis to line up a
meeting on Saturday with 2009 champion Marcos Baghdatis. Chad Greenway Jersey . Louis Cardinals. The
Astros received Greene on Thursday for a player to be named or cash
considerations. Adrian Peterson Jersey . After stumbling its
way to a mistrial of Clemens last year, the government is struggling again in
the retrial—to the point that the crux of Pettittes testimony might be tossed
out. First, the exasperated judge criticized the questioning of Pettitte on
Wednesday, then he ruled against prosecutors in another matter.PARIS—Moments
after his rain-interrupted French Open final against Rafael Nadal resumed
Monday, Novak Djokovic netted a forehand and punished himself by smacking his
racket strings against the side of his head three times. A day earlier, Djokovic
cracked his racket against his green sideline bench, sending a piece of the
furniture flying. Bidding to become the first man in 43 years to win four
consecutive Grand Slam championships, the No. 1-ranked Djokovic instead wound up
one victory shy, frustrated and beaten by the No. 2-ranked Nadal 6-4, 6-3, 2-6,
7-5 in a two-day title match at Roland Garros. Djokovics 27-match winning streak
at major tournaments ended in his debut in a Paris final. Nadal was playing in
his seventh final at Roland Garros; hes won every one, giving him a record seven
trophies at the French Open, one more than Bjorn Borg. “I managed to come to the
finals for the first time in my career. I should be happy about that, of course.
I will be and I am,” Djokovic said. “But in this moment I am disappointed about
this loss.” Only Don Budge in 1938, and Rod Laver in 1962 and 1969, won four
Grand Slam trophies in succession. Djokovic won Wimbledon in July, the U.S. Open
in September, and the Australian Open in January—beating Nadal in each final.
Theyre the first two men to meet in four straight major finals, and this time,
Nadal came out on top, improving his career record at the French Open to 52-1.
“Hes definitely (the) best player in history … on this surface,” said
Djokovic, “and results are showing that hes onne of the best ever. Kyle Rudolph Womens Jersey. ” On Sunday, at
the start, Nadal was at his court-covering, shot-whipping best, while Djokovic
was so-so. Once the showers grew stronger, the court became more slippery, and
the tennis balls more heavy and clay-streaked, it was Djokovic who handled the
conditions better, pushing around Nadal and reeling off eight consecutive games.
That allowed Djokovic to win the third set—the first one dropped by Nadal in
the tournament—and go ahead a break at 2-0 in the fourth. But at 2-1, play
was halted for the day. So was Djokovics momentum. Djokovic didnt want to blame
his loss on the decision to suspend play Sunday night. Nadal overwhelmed him
Monday, winning six of the nine games they played when action resumed. “Its
unfortunate, because I think I was playing better and I was feeling really well
on the court,” Djokovic said. “Today he started off really strong. I started a
bit slower.” On Monday, Nadal broke Djokovic right away to get to 2-2. They
stayed on serve until Nadal led 6-5. With Djokovic trying to force a tiebreaker,
he double-faulted on match point. After so many escapes earlier in the
tournament—overcoming a two-set deficit against Andreas Seppi in the fourth
round, then erasing four match points against Jo-Wilfried Tsonga in the
quarterfinals—Djokovic was done. So was his Grand Slam streak. “Sometimes you
win; sometimes you lose. I lost this time,” Djokovic said. “But I believe that
there are still many years to come, and hopefully I can come back stronger.” ’ ’
