Proof will be in the pudding as they say. I expect very little, "bird dogging" requires a guy to be a travelling salesman most of the year and this guy by his own words and reputation will not do that for us. What we got here is a guy who'll work the phones a couple hours a day Dass it ! Is what I expect.

Well if he doesn't work and is lazy, you can be assured Johnny will start a thread with the words "Fire" and "Joe" and "Mack" in record time!

After all, Johnny did create this thread in tribute to Mack :D

As Durant's contract is to Richard, Joe Mack is to you. :wink: :wink: :wink: Climb in off the ledge, Hfx! You have so much to live for.

Seriously, though, this is an instance where Mack being based in the US will help us. He's not the GM, he's the assistant. Let him leverage whatever connections he has south of the border to bring talent up to us. Kavis isn't stupid and he knows that his GM career will be short-lived if he can't make his assistants earn their paychecks. Also, I strongly suspect that Kavis knows exactly what Mack is and isn't. He's using Mack for his connections but not expecting much else, which is why Raiche is around and we're retaining the whole team of international scouts (Okeke, etc.).

If Mack can unearth a few diamonds in the rough and nothing else, how do we lose? He's not the GM. All he does is make recommendations to the GM.

With Popp gone I was also wondering about the ability of this administration to find worthy imports and now, its the OL that remains our prime concern. With respect to Catherine Raiche, I believe Catherine is hitting above the glass ceiling. Really its about time a woman was hired for an executive position in the CFL. I am a proud feminist supporter and I believe our society and our country is very much in need of more women appointed to positions of power. It appears that this young lady has earned her appointment. Its happening, I just read that our banks are appointing qualified women to prestige positions. Our society will be much better off when more women are elected to highly ranked positions in government and other such endeavours. I would love to see the situation where women fill 50% of all governments in Canada. Bravo Catherine!!!!
