Status quo for bumbling Bombers

WINNIPEG - Winnipeg Blue Bomber fans hoping for big changes during the bye week aren’t likely to get their wish.

The 1-5 CFL club touched down in Winnipeg, Tuesday, with a distinct “stay the course” look and feel to it, despite a fourth straight loss in B.C., Monday.

Team president/CEO Garth Buchko told the Winnipeg Sun he’s going on a much-needed family vacation, virtually eliminating the possibility he’ll relieve fourth-year GM Joe Mack of his duties.

Mack has just 22 regular-season and playoff wins in his 62-game tenure.

And head coach Tim Burke says he still believes in second-year offensive co-ordinator Gary Crowton, despite the Bombers’ ineptitude on that side of the ball.
