I like Austin and all that stuff, but I am becoming very tired of every year the poor performance being blamed upon injuries or rebuilding. This year I am VERY down in the dumps with this team and am starting to find it hard to cheer for them, but like the Leaf fans of the 80s I will likely continue to do so (after all I just spent $$ on Ti-cat fan stuff).
When are we going to be the team that everyone fears to play, to say "we have a tough road ahead of us". The Lions and Stamps have been tough winning teams for over a decade now, and us, well.... I want our team to strike fear into the opposition for years on end and not be in the rebuilding mode and using that and injuries for excuses. It is football, injuries are going to occur and that is why you need GOOD scouts who can find you depth players to fill in and do the job, not just fill a slot.
BTW - I don't count last years run to the Grey Cup as us being good, only that the other teams messed up when it counted most and we got lucky, the GC showed our real team ability.
Ok, let the bashing begin.
