The loss of Mike O’Shea and Arland Bruce in the same year borders on devastating for those of us who love to hate Argos. Hatred for the team is pre-eminent, and will always be there. But it’s fun to supplement it with extreme dislike of certain players.
Back in the glory days of a few years ago we had our pick. In addition to the two individuals mentioned above, there was Baker, Soward, Avery, even Prefontaine. And Bishop was always good for a laugh.
Now who have we got? Kerry Joseph has always struck me more as someone to feel sorry for rather than hate. Moreno’s never done anything against us, and Eiben appears to be a quasi-regular guy. Reggie McNeil seems like he’s got potential as someone I could learn to dislike.
The most obvious guys would seem to be Rob Murphy and Adriano Belli. And if Belli’s antics knock him off the roster, something tells me Corey Mace will make a fine replacement on my list – Mr. “Too Good for the Ticats”.
