WINNIPEG - Brett Carter was grinning ear to ear again Tuesday as he donned a Winnipeg Blue Bombers uniform for the second time in two years.The former Winnipeg Rifles receiver got to work out with the team last season and even dressed for a July game, then spent the rest of the season on the practice roster. Hes hoping to take the next step on his dream quest to make his hometown team.Im coming in here and Im going to fight for a spot, he said Tuesday as Day 3 of main training camp ended but his just started.Im going to be competing against a lot of these guys and there are a lot of really good players so Ive got to step my level up a lot and just be determined to do the best that I can do.Hes just 21 but was a CJFL All-Canadian and took home MVP honours with the Rifles, on top of being named a Prairie Football Conference All-Star.Last season, it was more of a teaching move to invite the young player to camp. The Bombers also invited a few Rifles players and a University of Manitoba Bisons quarterback to camp this year to work out with the team.But when July rolled around last season, injuries forced the Bombers to look for a Canadian to dress and Carter got the call. Coach Mike OShea said injuries in camp were also the reason Carter got a call this season as the Bombers look to bolster their Canadian talent.When youre faced with a certain number of injuries and youre looking at whos on your list of guys to bring back, he was here before, he understands what were trying to do here, hes local, hes good, said the coach.Carter impressed the coaches last season with his work ethic and ability. He also worked out with a team trainer in the off-season.Winnipeg-born Taylor Renaud, who played for Acadia, is also getting another look at Bombers camp as a receiver this season.The Bombers traded away two Canadian receivers in the off-season to acquire starting quarterback Drew Willy and defensive back Korey Banks.Willy, who was a backup in Regina, said after Tuesdays practice that hes starting to get more of a feel for the receivers hell be working with this season.One is former B.C. Lions receiver Nick Moore, who was signed as a free agent in the off-season. Willy has known Moore for years, going back to when they were both trying to land jobs in the NFL.I like what Im seeing, Ive thrown with Nick before, said Willy.Guys like (Clarence) Denmark and Rory (Kohlert), these guys are good players as well so its fun to be around talented guys like this. Ive thrown a bunch of balls to Aaron Kelly and weve made a lot of big plays with him. Im just trying to put together things with each guy, get a feel for how they run each route.The CFL labour dispute continues to hang over the camp and the Bombers and the Toronto Argonauts could be the first to feel the impact. They are scheduled to open the exhibition season Monday and the regular season on June 26, also in Winnipeg.The teams player rep, veteran offensive lineman Glenn January, suggested the players arent rushing to take any action.The conversations Ive had have been strictly limited to what we can do to get the CFL to see our point of view, he said.The Winnipeg exhibition game comes before the two Alberta teams could legally strike. January said he knows that.Our strike laws are different than Alberta and I do know that we have a strike vote in hand which is my understanding can be exercised at any point in time.But he also suggested the exhibition game wasnt necessarily in jeopardy, unless the players were forced to vote on the leagues contract offer. If it was rejected, he said it would deprive players in some provinces of any protection under the collective agreement.The two sides in the CFL labour dispute havent held formal meetings since Thursday and no new talks are scheduled.

. In fact, with a few improvements, this could very well be a decent team over the next few seasons. I will go into more detail when digging into the Canucks Off-Season Game Plan, which will be coming earlier this year since they are part of the non-playoff contingent, there are some reasons to think this is a favourable situation for President of Hockey Operations Trevor Linden and whomever he selects to be the new general manager.The Winnipeg Goldeyes had won 10 straight games against the Fargo-Moorhead RedHawks before Wednesday nights matchup at Shaw Park. The winning streak is over. The RedHawks got a two-run home run from C.J. Retherford and four RBI from Sawyer Carroll as they whipped the Fish 11-2 in front of a crowd of 7,054 at Winnipegs downtown ballpark. With a doubleheader victory on Tuesday night, the Goldeyes had already won the series, but on Wednesday, Fargo left town with their heads up. The Goldeyes had swept the previous two series against the RedHawks. In fact, the Goldeyes had a four-game winning streak stopped, while the RedHawks put an end to a four-game losing streak. The loss was a tough one for the Fish, who fell to 41-24 on the season. They are still in first place in the American Associations North Division but their lead has been cut to 2 1/2 games. "We just didnt throw any strikes for the first five innings and even the ones we threw, we gave up too much of the plate," said Goldeyes manager Rick Forney. "That Fargo team has a potent lineup and you cant throw pitches over the heart of the plate to them. "And we didnt even give our offence a chance. When you have 15 minute half innings, everything just gets out of rhythm. We have to do a better job throwing strikes early in the ballgame." Fargo scored a run in the second inning off Gooldeyes starter Chandler Barnard and then ran Barnard out of the ballgame in the third by scoring five runs on five hits.ddddddddddddThe big blow was a two-run double by Erik Castro. Winnipeg scored a run in the second on a walk to Donnie Webb, a stolen base (Webbs league-leading 27th steal) and an RBI single by Reggie Abercrombie. With the score 6-1, the Goldeyes added a run in the third on a single by Jordan Guida, a wild pitch and an RBI single by Tyler Kuhn. However, the RedHawks got a two-run bomb from Retherford in the fourth and then added three more in the fifth and that was all she wrote. Fargo starter Brian Ernst (6-4, 5.40 ERA) earned the victory while Barnard (4-2, 4.19 ERA) suffered the loss. There was no save. The RedHawks finished with 11 runs on 11 hits while the Goldeyes managed just two runs on eight hits. The Goldeyes left immediately after Wednesdays game for Gary, Ind., where theyll play a three-game weekend series against the Gary Southshore RailCats beginning on Friday night. Matt Jackson (8-3, 3.53 ERA) will get the start for the Goldeyes in Game 1 while Stephen Hiscock (7-4, 4.24 ERA) will take to the bump for Gary. Winnipeg will return home right after Sundays game and on Monday, six members of the Goldeyes will participate in the 2014 Manitoba Liquor and Lotteries American Association All-Star Game festivities.
