Winnipeg Blue Bombers CFL fans assembled at Investors Group Field in Winnipeg to honour four fan favorite former players who had one of the four main gates named after them. These are the four former players, from the left; Ken Ploen, Joe Poplawski, Milt Stegall, and Doug Brown. Wednesday, June 5, 2013.

I’ve often said the Blue Bombers don’t do nearly enough to recognize their storied history.

Thursday they took a small step in the right direction, honouring the four players whose faces adorn the main entry points to the new stadium.

I say it’s a small step, because the Bombers need to do a lot more.

Once you get past the gates marking the careers of Ken Ploen, Joe Poplawski, Milt Stegal and Doug Brown, selected through fan voting, there’s not a single reminder of this team’s tradition, aside from a couple of posters inside the store.
