All indications -- continued chaos

Re: Blue Bombers starting fresh (Nov. 14). The recent developments by the Winnipeg Football Club, while interesting and necessary, do little to create confidence and hope the Bombers are prepared to turn things around.

Hiring a CEO without the benefit of a transparent search process, being secretive about the term length (this is a public organization) and suggesting a former head coach could work in a lesser role all point to a continuation of the gong show we saw in 2013.

As a season-ticket holder who just renewed seats for 2014, I hope to be proven wrong. If it's a year from now and the club is defaulting on its loans due to a dwindling fan base, then maybe the province and city will finally take action to ensure the board structure is modified so modern accountabilities are in place to ensure the long-term viability of the club.

Tim Burke is a good man. I understand what happened on Wednesday. I do hope he stays as defensive coach, because he is very talented.

Football has a nasty business side. We all know that, but it's still sad. Whatever he decides to do, I thank him and wish him well.
