It's pretty obvious that something needs to be done to get this straightened out and not just finding some re-tread coach who has been around the league before. Coach MB just isn't the guy and that was proven today. To keep him as the HC is to say you might as well have kept Greg Marshall, because Marcel is no more qualified. There are some pieces in place but it starts with the line on both sides, and help is needed there. Find a head coach who has no baggage and let him build a culture that doesn't make excuses for failure.
The Cats went from Champs in 1999 to 1 and 17 in 2003, because Grant and McDonald wouldn't spend any money on the team. That's a fact, proven by the way they bailed out and left the team in league hands.
Bob Young comes in and saves the franchise, but allows it to become a disfunctional mess with Ron Lancaster (no disrespect ), Rob Katz, Dave Sauve, Marcel Desjadins, Scott Mitchell and God knows who else trying to get the owner's ear. Everyone wanting to be the genius that turned things around in Hamilton and willing to throw anyone else under the bus. Not healthy, but Bob didn't know any better. He trusted Lancaster to be his football expert, but Ron was upset that Marshall was COY after he had to suffer through bankruptcy as HC and he never got over it. Katz was in over his head and made the mess worse. Desjardins tried to clean up the mess but was too arrogant and obviously inexperienced. A little humility would have served him well.
Obie is a good football man, but a bold move is needed to change the culture here. There's a chance because Toronto seems to be making some of the same mistakes we've been making and Winnipeg is no dynasty.
