OBIE I don't think is the right choice.
you can quote me on that later if he is picked
and doesn't turn this team around. Thumbs Down
I tend to agree, although, Obie did a great job in BC and for that matter, any place he has used his football skills.
My problem with the likes of Obie and for that matter, Dave Ritchie as a coordinator, is age. I'm wondering how much longer guys of their respective ages can burn the midnight oil in assembling a winning football team in Hamilton.
I also agree with an earlier theory in this thread which mentions that if Obie were indeed, the man, wouldn't he be here by now? He's been markedly available for some time now.
This brings to mind another worry.. All or most of the other CFL teams have started their campaigns for 2008. In Hamilton, we really can't get much started until we know who the coaches and managers are. Last year we made last minute moves in these areas which resulted in Taaffe having to accept leftovers as his assistants.
Lets get on with it! Florida can wait!
There is important work to be done right now. :roll:
