I was thinking about Winfield and the good old days and wondered who else might come to mind as great ticats through the years but never won a cup here. Its not negative, Earl is my all time favorite I was just wondering who else is there that played for years and gave a lot and was loved by fans but never won the ultimate prize. I know to me Winfield tops the list but there must be others. Anyone?
Winfield's probably the greatest never to win a cup.
Michael O'Shea (shudder)
both won with other teams, but not Hamilton
Wally Zatylny I don't think ever won
Don't know who else to add to the list
Most of our greatest players have won a cup with Hamilton.
O'Shea is not a Cat-4 years
Clements 3 years
Brock 2 years
Great players, not Cats
David Shaw, Jimmy Edwards, and Tom Clements would get my votes.
How about keith Baker ?
didn't Henry win in 86
Henry retired after the 1984 Grey Cup to go fishing.
Those are five who come to mind for me. The biggest regret I have as a fan is that the 1981 team didn't seal the deal. In my view, that was the greatest Ticat team to never win the Cup (I'm being era-specific here, not counting stronger 1960s teams that lost in the Grey Cup in certain years).
