Winnipeg Blue Bomber fans are conceding graciously after a nail-biting loss to the Toronto Argonauts on Sunday.
Bob Irving, who served as the voice of the Bombers on 680 CJOB for the better part of five decades said “give the Argos credit. They earned the win.” in a tweet.
Lots of questionable stuff in grey cup 109, a gut wrenching loss for the bombers, if you want to attach blame, lots of it to go around, but give the Argos credit. They earned the win.

Irving previously predicted the Bombers would take home the cup for a third time.
Meanwhile, Winnipeg’s new mayor Scott Gillingham congratulated the Bombers on an ‘outstanding season and a ‘great run’ and Premier Heather Stefanson congratulated the Argos for ‘a well fought win.’
