Although a great game, what was the most annoying part?

Darren had a rough day in the booth. Ordinarily the insight he brings outweighs his broadcasting inexperience, but it was a cringe-worthy performance this time. As just two examples, he called Chad Folk "#56...um..Chad", and he referred to the Grey Cup as "the Grey Coach, um, I mean, the Grey Cup."

The CBC telecasts are over-produced taking time away from the game. Late in the game they broke away from coverage to give us "Mik'd Up" which was of no insight and missed the snap of the next play. Also, nobody cares about their stupid play on words, keys to the game. The best CBC coverage was during the strike.

Mic'd up is the most pointless feature of the CBC broadcast. They'll show one hit & the player yapping along about something irrelavent to the game. Its just a plug for Rogers, thats about it.

Your hatred of DMAC is well documented but "paralyzed to do for decades" suggests many other examples.

Please provide examples.

Hatred ??..hmmmmm…sounds like a good drama to me. :roll:

At any rate, every bone in my body wants to get into a historic and highly entertaining peeing match with you Zontar…but alas…my inner self is pulling me back from the brink saying…no, no, no…he’s baiting…don’t do it! :lol:

(Damn ! I really dis-like being a Gemini at times)…too many times, the rational side of me takes over… :wink:

But yeah, sorry…too much on my plate right now to engage … 8)

What happened on Arland Bruces td catch was a poor poor job of tackling by the 2 Winnepeg DBS . Something that HAS happened in Hamilton for years !!!! It had nothing to do with bringing in a new QB, it was just terrible tackling in a big game !!!!

As far as your pulling of the QB scenario , In your world they would of pulled Glenn at the half because he was well under a hundred yards passing for the half . Well we all know what Glenn did in the second half dont we ??

And would you of pulled Burris in the Calgary game and put Danny Mac in ??? There is no bigger chocker QB in the CFL than Burris !!!!

2 things:

  1. Having to listen to Steve Armitage announce (almost as bad as Chris Walby!)

  2. Argos winning. I am now wearing my "Argos Suck" pin on my backpack.

Doesn't have to be a "peeing match" nor does it have to include me at all.
But when you mock the organization dont you owe it to the Cats and the membership an explanation with actual facts and or data and not an empty accusation and a silly,made-up fantasy like astrology?

And would you of pulled Burris in the Calgary game and put Danny Mac in ??? There is no bigger chocker QB in the CFL than Burris !!!!
Interesting you ask me that Habman....As a matter of fact, I was with a Ticat legend in his home earlier today doing some business stuff and we both were saying that they should have thrown Danny Mac in to shake it up and change the pace.....Scouts Honour...that's what I said and that's what I believe....Danny Mac would have been the perfect move.....but the Calgary coaches were gutless-----> ergo Loss 8)

Now that you're all falling back in shock, my kids are bugging me for dinner so I'm outta here....keep your stick on the ice mates! :cowboy:

Mikey, did you admit to this "legend" you said DMAC should have retired and mentored the Cats' future QB Marcus Brady three years ago?

....something Hamilton had been paralyzed to do for decades....

I hope our new coach has such foresight going forward and we don't get mired in past habits and mistakes.

Well, that's what annoyed me anyhow....

Congrats to the Argos!

Zontar: Are you having difficulty following this thread? Several of us here have agreed with Mikey and you're not likely to change our minds.

Mikey's dislike for DMAC is purely in reference to his quarterbacking; not unlike my own. None of us actually HATE Danny as you suggest Mikey does. On the contrary, we think very highly of Danny, but no longer as a quarterback.

Mikey is a busy guy and told you, not in so many words, that he didn't have time to persue another arguement with you; so what do you do? You stir the pot a little more in an attempt apparantly to start something new here. I hope he ignores you.

Aw, that's cute, sticking up for mikey.
But if you bothered to read my posts I stressed he didnt have to pee on me, or argue or include me in any way.
When you make accusations and asserstions like mikey did about the organization arn;t you obliged to offer some evidence to back it up?
Making some empty statement then scuttling off without explaining it is pretty lame , no?

P.S. if you dont think highly of DMAC as a QB why did you want him in a playoff game yesterday?, it doesnt make sense.

what was the annoying part? … zontar coming back after a weeks “vacation” and trying to stir the pot again.

you’ve made 8 posts since coming back…the first a dig at Boreham, then 3 at Greg Marshall, and now 4 trying to bait Mike into another battle. Thats all so old and tired!

Please for the sake of real fans of the game, who come here for info and entertainment, give it a rest! Thanks!

Isn’t that what this forum is for?

The Toronto Star reported on what happened to bring aboutthe QB change. Pinball went to Adam Rita with about 10 minutes left and asked him if he thought it was time for Michael. Rita said he'd think about it. Bishop went in for the rest of the game. Rita said afterward, he got the message. For all of Pinball's chucking and jiving, he's not afraid to hurt an ego or two to get the job done.

Pinball has already said Allen will start on Sunday despite Bishop's heroics.

I'm wondering what the flareup between Avery and Pinball was about during the game that led to Avery being benched for Jeff Johnson until the latter went out with an injury. Anyone know?

An Argo fan

What the hell are you talking about Zontar?
I didn’t give a damn that Danny Mac wasn’t inserted into the game yesterday!

How do you manage to come up with this nonsense?
I’ve already mentioned that I don’t care for Danny’s quarterbacking, so why would I have wanted him in yesterday’s game?

Do yourself and the rest of us a favour and either start paying attention or get the hell off the site!

Somebody help me out here with regards to Zontar asking Mikey to explain what he meant in his first post. How is that baiting? One person stated a point, another person gave feedback on that point and asked for clarification. What else was he supposed to do? Just nod and smile?

Did I just "stir the pot"?

Behind that disarming smile is one hard-ass coach. Pinball not only canned Robert Baker and Kent Austin this year, but previously cut loose personal friend Mookie Mitchell in the name of building the team.

I wanna know about the Avery dressing-down too. It seems to have got lost in the quarterback “controversy.”
