"And really, is there anyone in captivity who really likes Dickerson and his attitude?"


I just don't think that Dickenson has had to accomplish much as a head coach.

He took over a cup contender from John Hufnagel, so there were no team to build.

He carried over much the same coaching staff, so that was not an obstacle.

He continued as the OC, so he was not new to the team and the offensive game plan was already in place.

He didn't have to develop or locate a starting quarterback, so his signal caller was familiar and arguably the best in the league.

So, how hard or challenging has his job truly been??
Well, it must have been challenging to keep that angry look on his face throughout all the success the team has had.

It used to be that the COTY award was just automatically given to the Grey Cup winner without any further thought.  Now that the voting happens earlier, it looks like the voters are just automatically giving it to the team with the best record in the division without any further thought.

I would like to see coach of the year opened up to co ordinators.it would be a more interesting contest and give the ocs and dcs higher profile.sometimes a new co ordinator turns a unit completely around

If Jones got 2-3 more wins and we finished close to .500 they could have easily given it to him. Going 8-2 vs 6-4 is a big difference.

Quite simply put , if we would've won those two late season games that we had leads in and never should've lost against Toronto and Ottawa then this Jones led team would've finished in 1rst in the East after going 8-2 under Jones . The game against Toronto if we would've won would've given us the season series against them and the game we should've won against Ottawa would've given us one more pt in the standings then Ottawa eventually wound up with and eliminated them from the play-offs instead of us.

Final East Standings (if we won both games against Toronto and Ottawa )

Hamilton..........8 - 10 - 0 - 16
Toronto............8 - 10 - 0 - 16
Ottawa.............7 - 10 - 1 - 15
Montreal...........3 - 15 - 0 - 6

A much more satisfying finish...but alas....

Ottawa did get eliminated...although a game later...almost as good...

Coach of the year will be the "green" Jones...... 🤖 He has done an amazing job in Sask.

Too late , it's already been announced . It's Trestman from the East vs Dickinson from the West .
Personally although I don't really care for the guy I think that Corky Jones should have got the nod in the West . Unfortunately in the East I have to agree with the selection of Trestman and what he has done with Toronto this season .

Try to keep up with the program there Slomo  :D As previously stated that "other" Coach named Jones wasn't even nominated for the Award . I will give you this though and agree that he has done an amazing job in Sask this year . As I stated earlier Love him or Hate him IMO Jones deserved the nomination over Dickensen in the West .
