Well, that does not seem to be the way Bellefeuille sees it.
Here's an excerpt from the latest post on Drew Edwards' blog:
Ticat head coach Marcel Bellefeuille wasn't interested in moral victories in the wake of his team's 21-8 loss at the hands of the Montreal Alouettes last night.
"We came out here to try and win a football game and we didn't do that. We weren't out here playing for respect," Bellefeuille said last night.
The coach said a number of miscues contributed to his team's downfall against the Als.
"We played hard and we gave ourselves an opportunity. But whether we dropped footballs, whether we missed blocks, whether we missed throws, we didn't execute well enough," he said.
It's good to know that Bellefeuille knows the importance of getting winning games in addition to winning respect. But I will say that I'm not too disappointed considering how the team did against a Montreal team that is currently considered easily the league's best, and with that built-in excuse of missing a few starters, some of whom are among the team's best players.
