    Sports Bowman Appreciation Thread

    Didn't see this posted, so hopefully we're good...

    Thank you, Adarius Bowman, for seven years in the green and gold. In an era where we've gone through some dark times, you were a real bright spot - both on and off the field.

    I know a lot of us were skeptical about him coming in because of the 'dropsies' issue that booted him out of Sask and the Peg. But man, did he prove us wrong or what!

    All the best as you return to Winnipeg.

    You'll be sorely missed on and off the field.
    Hope your future is brighter than ever.

    Provided lots of highlites for us. Sorry to see him leave this way. Best wishes. He is someone that I hope stays in Canada when he retires.

    * just wanted to mention I saw ex Bomber and Esk , Jason Vega working at Wpg. Dodge. Love it when they stay here after football.

    Thanks you Madarius(as my 36 year old cousin, who thinks he's Don Cherry) would say.

    You were both fun and frustrating to watch here at times. Good luck in Winterpeg!

    Re: Bowman Appreciation Thread

    When you look at the career numbers you were one of the best receivers to ever don the Green and Gold and as such should be considered for the Wall of Honor when your career is eventually said and done. What may be more impressive than the run you had with the team is the excellent Edmontonian that you became and I sincerely hope that when your career eventually does come to an end that you find yourself back in our town and continue to be the outstanding citizen you've been over the years. My daughter is having a tough time with this one. First Kabongo and now you. Eventually she may understand its just a business and come back to cheering actively for the Esks but for now Brock isn't exactly her favorite person. Best of luck to you except for when you lace them up against the Eskimos.

    An amazing player and athlete. But what got me about Adarius was what a great person he has been in the community and supporting kids who need the help so desperately. That combination --- skill/accomplishment and outstanding service --- is, to me, what makes the ideal Eskimo.
    Out of my mind; back in five minutes.

    Thank you for the years of entertainment, you were one of the best to dawn the jersey. Just remember Adarius, Once an Eskimo Always an Eskimo. Good luck in the future, maybe we'll see you back some day coaching from the side lines.

    Thanks for all that you did on the field Adarius, but more importantly, thank you for all that you did off the field. Great Eskimo great Edmontonian.

    Re: Bowman Appreciation Thread

    Huge thanks to Adarius and it was amazing to see his growth as a person and player. I'm from Winnipeg, I have friends who have known him.. and I knew he was involved in not a lot of good things back then. I don't want to put his business in the street or something, but I was worried when he became a fan of my team for off the field and on the field concerns.

    He shut me up really quick.

    Hope he does well in Winnipeg, although I wish he would have went somewhere else. LOL.

    Re: Bowman Appreciation Thread

    Thanks for the great seasons. We wish you all the best and if it can't be us hoisting the cup a good runner up prize would be seeing you being part of the team to bring back the first cup is almost 30 years to Winnipeg.
