I've read through most of the posts by now and the high percentage of fans/posters are not impressed with the Rocky BUTLER trade. But I LOVE IT!!!!
1st Reason - The players on this team are LOSERS! While they all have talent, there is no cockiness or confidence with the players that are here. They dont believe they can win. WE NEED OUR SWAGGER BACK AND NO ONE HERE NOW IS CAPABLE OF DOING THAT.
2nd Reason - The new players had better perform or they're gone... a great message to send to slackers...where are you now Craig YEAST. NO MORE INMATES RUNNING THE ASYLUM.
3rd Reason - Every good CFL team needs a CAPABLE backup QB. Butler is immediately our #2 guy and we still have a chance to win if J.MAAS goes down or stinks again. EAKIN was brutal last year and R.WILLIAMS is a project.
4th reason - FLICK, W.SMITH, CHEATWOOD, COTTON, and whoever else, were LANCASTER/MARSHALL guys. TAAFFE is a smart coach and will have good players and leaders in place to replace them.
5th and Final Reason - Because Im sick and tired of losing and whatever the Cats were doing before wasn't working. DRASTIC TIMES CALL FOR DRASTIC MEASURES....
