When no CFL teams would risk taking a chance on him this past off season
apparently Casey ask himself what he could learn from all the negatives
that happened to him since he was first signed by the Hamilton Tiger Cats.
I would say that Casey has done a little maturing and that's a positive.
I like what Bob O'billovich says in the article.
Printers experiment backfired on Ticats

O'Billovich didn't say the quarterback divided the room
when he was here, but he did say there were issues.
Most of those issues, of course, revolved around
Printers' salary - $500,000 per,
which made him the highest-paid
player in the CFL when he signed
and his production,
which, how shall we say, wasn't
commensurate with his pay cheque.
[i]The Cats' GM added he likes Printers personally, but,
professionally, things weren't going to work out in Steeltown.
....`It doesn't matter what position you play, if you're not doing your job
there's a tendency for other players to lose respect for you as an athlete.
It was more that type of thing where
there wasn't enough confidence in (Printers). ''[/i]
I like your explanation that his team-mates here ended up
losing respect for him because he failed to produce, Obie.
It appeared to me that the players didn't dislike Casey either.
He wasn't a 'Prima Donna' or a 'locker room cancer.'
That tag followed him here from B.C. and it drove me nuts.
O'Billovich went on to say Printers' mind was "muddled'' by his time
with the NFL's Kansas City Chiefs which preceded his arrival in Hamilton.
