The fantastic banner at the bottom of every page on this website shows a fact that is not mentioned enough when speaking about our football team. That is, that we are the only team in professional football that can count a championship in every decade since 1900. (In fact we would have won the first Grey Cup had the manufacturing of the actual trophy not been delayed..."In 1908, the Tigers won the dominion championship, a year before the Grey Cup was presented." Lord Grey decided to present the Cup in 1908 but the actual trophy wasn't ready until 1909.)
That being said we have only 3 more opportunities to keep this streak alive, and this year does not look promising. I really hope that this great historic franchise can keep its winning tradition alive!

P.S. The History section of ticats.ca needs to be more in depth...remember the Tigers and their history (and championships), and the Wildcats and even the Alerts. We have 138 years of football history in Hamilton 40 of those happened before the first Grey Cup Game.
