In Steve Milton's Hamilton Spectator article today
Rob drafted the proper plan and followed it.
Steve said, "The Cats could have hired Taaffe
right after Marshall was fired, because
he hadn't yet been hired by Pitt.
In fact, a member of the front office
suggested it at the time.
But Katz refused to do things out of order.
He was still searching for a GM,
and wanted that GM to hire his own coach.
Taaffe might have been unavailable
by the time the Cats were ready for him
but it was worth the gamble
to draft the proper plan and follow it.
And now they've done it right,
and still have Taaffe.
