The Winnipeg Blue Bombers honoured former coach and GM Cal Murphy with a statue. To no one's surprise, it went way over budget.


  1. The Bombers' only championships in the last 55 years came under Cal Murphy's watch — as a coach in 84; GM in 88 and 90. For this, he is deserving of recognition.

    Cal built winners — at any cost. When he was let go in 96, the Bombers were in massive debt that took years to recover from.

  2. Sounds like a George Allen disciple.

  3. That is a fair comparison, Gary.
