Big money for big oil?

March 27, 2020

Winnipeg Free Press - In times of crisis, it is not uncommon to see governments step in and provide help to industry to keep big businesses from failing.

Those who are in favour of federal supports for the fossil fuel industry are quick to point out these resources are integral to the functioning of other big business, such plastics, shipping and airlines.

Giants decline option on S Bethea, look to OT in draft

March 18, 2020

Winnipeg Free Press - The Giants on Wednesday declined the contract option on safety Antonie Bethea, freeing about $2.75 million in salary cap space. So with about $11 million in cap space, don't expect the Giants to find an offensive tackle in free agency. With the fourth pick overall after a 4-12 season, offensive tackle seems the likely choice, although it could be a linebacker or a receiver. The offensive tackle position in the draft is deep. The injury-prone Evan Engram remains the top tight end, while the Giants were impressed with free agent Kaden Smith last season.
