As a long time Ticat fan, season ticket holder and proud Hamiltonian (although I now live in Cambridge but still consider Hamilton my home), I was reflecting on the 1 and 6 start and realized how fortunate and grateful WE all should be. We have the best owner in the league as well as (although I have never met him) he seems to be a really great guy. Without him, would Hamilton even be in the CFL? I see the franchise starting to build not only a contender for this year but for years to come, thanks to Kent Austin (we are lucky to have him). We are fortunate to have a new stadium (who cares if it is late, at least we are getting one) in a location that works for everyone and in an area of the city (which I grew up in) in need of development. We have 2 very good QB’s and a 3rd that is very close, I disagree with those who feel Masoli has no arm. When else in Ticat history have we had 3 QB’s of this quality? Although we are 1 and 6, we have competed in almost every game and our players have a “never give up? attitude like I have never seen before. We could easily be 5 and 2 or even 6 and 1. We also need to be proud that this franchise has won 15 championships and I see us winning again soon, provided we stay the course and build on the youth that we have and allow them to develop. We need to stop hitting the reset button and build on what we have now.
This is my list, what else do you think we should be grateful for?
