I haven't been posting here because like everyone else at the Ticats I've been working hard on building a football organization that will make us all proud and happy Ticat fans again. But here's my take on this recent trade:
Whether we were "fleeced" or were "brilliant" in this particular trade will have to wait until June to find out. We made a bunch of "brilliant" trades last year that resulted in our 4-14 record. Sigh.
Wayne and DJ will be missed. Both were great guys who contributed more than their share to the Ticats off the field.
But whenever you can trade for a promising young quarterback who has CFL experience you do it - this is a quarterback driven league. We are all very excited to have been able to bring Rocky to Hamilton.
This trade also shows the confidence that Marcel and Charlie and Scott have in their ability to recruit more highly talented players to the Ticats this off-season.
We are tired of losing. We are determined to build a winning team. We will continue to do whatever is necessary to achieve this, this year.
Stay tuned. This is going to become increasingly interesting.
