Morris: Richie Hall continuing to beat the odds

Because of his size, and because of his colour, Richie Hall has always been forced to beat the odds.

This is a companion discussion topic for the original entry at

Richie is one of a kind who beat all the odds as a player and coach. His great game plan in shutting down the TiCats offense to win the Grey Cup was copied by Todd Bowles of the Bucs in their win over the Chiefs in the Super Bowl. Similar guys in many ways in regards to their coaching careers.

Yes, Coach Richie definitely beat the odds. We'd gone through a lot of coaches here in Bomber Town since the Cal Murphy regime. Kyle Walters and Mike O'Shea put an end to the scapegoating. Now we have some leadership consistency from year to year. Guys like Hall get to hang around long enough to prove themselves.
