HAMILTON — The weight off of the shoulders was visible in the guys in the Black and Gold jerseys on Friday night.

Hope so !, still have big issues of Turning over the football !
I was very proud of how Hamilton hung in there and came back from being down. This is the best "TEAM" performance in a long time - they deserved the win.
Now about some of that refereeing - seriously these guys are out of it. That call against Wynn for a late hit was "iffy." The pyramid call against Kelly was just wrong and it ruined a great athletic move - the pass interference on Banks was "bush league" - Banks did a flop dive and the refs fell for it - even Dunnigan mentioned it. These kind of bad calls can decide games - the refs need to improve or they will kill the game.
As I mentioned earlier, this was a good team effort and it gives me hope for the rest of the season. I thought Simoni Lawrence showed a lot of character in coming back after being hurt and he lead the team by example - he played hard and made some very key tackles - and hard ones too!
