Since Senior started a "topic". Gave me the idea to start my own...
I'm looking at the disapointment to anger on the forums at the .500 start of this club this year and I ask myself. Is it fair to the team to be so down and quick to demand changes ? I think we have been way spoiled. The team is struggling right now to find its footing and for the most part its normal. A lot of changes, some is bad luck, some of it is just guys in a slump. But that's part of sports and I think its important to give the staff and the players the opportunity to work through these problems.
Yes they are real. Worst defense in Hamilton I can remember seeing from the post renaissance Alouettes. I am even more frustrated with the special teams problems that have plagued this team for going on 3 years.
But I have a real hard time letting it get to me. Because they've been so good for so long that they deserve some slack and get those problems resolved. I have a lot of trust in the people in place that they will put the well being of the team first and foremost. This is the biggest support fans can give them. Otherwise you can quickly fall in the same trap as the Tiger-Cats have for a decade, where your just throwing stuff at the wall and hoping it sticks.
So I invite you guys to stay positive and supportive, might need a bite guard for the next couple months but I think this team is in good hands and will make the right decisions.
