What if Burris doesn't fumble on the one-yard line against Winnipeg in August?
What if Fantuz doesn't fumble on the 10-yard line against Toronto last Thursday?
This wasn't about what ifs, so I don't know why you took it that way. It was said that Glenn would have led this team to a worse record than Burris did. But if Glenn was retained (and Fantuz not signed), then the Cats would have had more money to spend elsewhere. You just can't assume that if team would have kept Glenn that the rest of the team would have been the same. Even say the Fantuz signing happens, there is still around $100,000 for the Cats to spend on at least one other player. The switch from Glenn to Burris meant the team had less money to lure other players to Hamilton with. Other players that may have helped the defense.
I'm not trying to single either of those players out, but the Ti-Cats did not need an upgrade at receiver or quarterback. Glenn was a perfectly capable QB that led the team to three straight playoff appearances and the receivers were decent enough that I'm sure they would have produced at a similar level without Burris throwing them the ball or Fantuz on the field. That's not to say either player didn't contribute, but if they aren't here, the team could have used the money they spent on them to address more pressing needs.
Had the Ti-Cats not dumped their quarterback for a more expensive one and not signed another receiver when they already had a pretty good group, perhaps that $300,000 could have been partially used to lure, say, Byron Parker to Hamilton. The fact is, with the Burris and Fantuz additions we know they couldn't; without them, a lot more things are possible.
My only point in the part you call a "what if" was to point out that if Glenn is still here, you can't say the team would have been the exact same. It's not placing blame on anyone for anything, just saying that the team would not have been the exact same with Glenn behind centre. Not saying the team would have been better or worse, just saying it would have been different. We don't know what Glenn would have been able to do here, but to say that the team would have been worse/the same for no real reason other than, well I don't know what, is passing off opinion as fact.
