A friend of mine in Montreal actually gave thanks to our Tiger-Cats for originally releasing Anthony Calvillo in 1998 when the late Great Ron Lancaster took over along with Danny Mac, AC later signed with Montreal.
My friend said that AC is the best thing to happen to football in Montreal because he brought his winning, never give it up attitude to the Als and he now has his second Grey Cup.
This reminds me of when Sask won the 2007 Grey Cup and how happy the fans were that we supplied so many players, ex-cats to that team and they went on to win the Grey Cup, like Kerry Joseph, Tad Kornagy, D.J. Flick and so on. The Rider fans were so happy that year they were saying that Hamilton should be a farm team for the CFL, to supply great players elsewhere in the league.
Not to mention the players we supplied to Edmonton the previous year like Joe Montford and Troy Davis our leading rusher who also went on to Win a Grey Cup.
I'm glad to see that stop after Obie took controls and keep all good players here in Hamilton and make some great signings that added to our young team this year and hopefully they will continue to re-sign past players and grab the rights of new players who can make the Cats a Winning team in 2010 and beyond!!
Eat Em Raw Tiger-Cats in 2010!!!!
