Len Frketich (San Francisco 49ers/BC

Tom Roach, seeing that he wasn't going to
get a shot to supplant Steve Clark with the Portland Thunderbirds in the
eyes of Coach Hughes, signed a contract with the Bombers and the same
day booted a 36-yd FG and PAT in an 18-12 OT win over Edmonds.
Dick Winn piled up 201 yds (Pacific
Football League record) and 3 TD's in a 1966 pre-Halloween win over
The Bombers chose not to host the 1966
playoffs due to financial concerns of paying the traveling team and not
having enough left over to pay the players their fee. Crowds had
dipped along with November temperatures to a point where the team was
losing money each week.
In December of '66 the Continental
Football League asked that Peter Murphy to put his team in the East Coast
league in an effort to establish a western division. Increased
revenues would be required even though the leagues' best attendance
(5200 per game) was higher than some existing CFL teams. Airfare
and player salaries would be increased in the CFL.
The Bombers featured a quartet of
Quarterbacks in the Aug 19 game including 3 ex-pros: Paul Brothers (BC
Lions), Mike Brundage (Pittsburg Steelers), Terry Durham (Chicago
Bears). 1966 starter Roger Daniels would be hard pressed to hold
In May of 1968 a news report in the Eugene
Register reported that the Bombers would take the '68 season off because
of a lack of a suitable stadium.
