I Hate The Argos and It Sucks

I Hate The Argos and It Sucks

by Mark » Wed Sep 07, 2016 7:13 pm

Moved to Canada in 1962 when 8. First lived in Streetsville and life was centred on Toronto. Then we moved to Hamilton in '63.

I've always though rampant nationalism silly. In High School I thought battles between schools silly. That's why I just can't figure out why I hate the Argos so much. Seriously.... it's pathological. Yet I'm a reasonable guy and I LOVE Pinball and I DO think that on Labour Day there probably should have been a roughing the passer call.

BUT I'll be at BMO calling down devastation on the Argos this weekend.

I think that it's the Labour Day game feeling that's seeped into my blood. BUT....

From this Cat fan to CFL fans who sadly - but understandably - support the Argos..... I SALUTE YOU.

You fight an uphill battle and it's a good fight in a city that looks down its nose at a great game. Hang in there and please continue to be the object of my friendly but heartfelt ridicule and contempt.

(Think I need therapy?) :D

From one Mark to another, firstly Great name. haha. Lived in Mississauga my first 40 years. Anyhow I'm hearing from many who believe that that should have been called and I do believe that was when Ray got injured. I'm surprised that Milo and Barker have just let it ride. Actually it pisses me off. How does a total class act like Ray, a sure Hall Of Fame qb who's as tough as nails and doesn't EVER whine and ***** get treated like ****. Everyone can talk about Harris and Collaros all they want but Ray is tougher then both put together. I like those young guys but they've yet to win squat.

Now that the season looks over for TO it's time to see what Lefevour can do. I like Fajardo and I'm sure the new young guy can be a good CFL qb. Kilgore needs to be cut!!!!!
Rescue the sunken 'Good Ship Argonaut' and restore her in 2017, PLEASE!!!!

Stay in Canada, spend in Canada!!!!!

Kilgore looks like the type that needs more non pressure time till he gets his confidence under game conditions. But he may never be more than a back up type.
Fajardo might turn out to be the better of the two. He can run and has size. But he's not 6'5 like the Argo roster states. More like 6'1 or 2.
Going to be some tall thinking by the Argo brass this off season. Do they hold onto Ray who is at about 75% of what he used to be, or go for a young free agent QB like Franklin in Edmonton. I'm sure Chris Jones will have Franklin on his radar as well.

As much as I like Ray, the Argos can't make plans around him anymore. He's done.
