    Bombers optimistic about securing Raiders, Packers NFL pre-season game in Winnipeg

    The Winnipeg Football Club is optimistic about securing the Oakland Raiders and Green Bay Packers NFL pre-season game at Investors Group Field, according to Jeff Hamilton of the Winnipeg Free Press.



    Oakland and Green Bay are scheduled to play in Week 3 of the NFL’s exhibition schedule. The Bombers are on the road in Edmonton during Week 11 of the CFL slate.

    After it was known Regina exited the running to host the NFL pre-season game, the Blue Bombers said “the Winnipeg Football Club is always exploring opportunities to host events at Investors Group Field.”

    That exploration has led to Winnipeg being on the verge of hosting an NFL game for the first time ever.

    I'd honestly rather see a US stadium secure a CFL game. It's not any great shakes for Winnipeg to secure a preseason game, like it was sort of tragic for the Bills to try and play home games in Toronto. It might be amusing but the CFL doesn't need the presumed validation besides it being an event.

    I really believe the CFL is probably how the NFL wants to look in another decade while the CFL can't be bothered being the NFL.

    Is Mr. Pink the one to bring me down ? Is Peterman on an NFL roster in 2019 ? What avatar do I choose for Mr. Pink ? Stay tuned, it's hugely !

    Brings in money for the stadium. Cant survive with just CFL games. And players that are not going to make it can see what is up here.
