I agree....but I think we will continue to see more and more Mickey sightings at the games. As the team does more poorly, more of the hard stuff is required to assist in helping ease the pain. When will Compass start selling containers again?
I ,myself, will be using my barnoculars to watch the action on the field a little more closely than normal. All in hopes of really seeing who has talent on this team and who needs to end up like Craig Yeast.
I will go to the game. I bought the tickets. I won't likely give them away because - and this is honest - I don't want people to see a bad performance and decide against the 'Cats as a form of entertainment. I take people with me, or give away a ticket or two, during a good season.
On the other hand, I really don't care about the rest of the season. My passions are spent. I tried to get excited during the one TD series which we had in Sask. but even that bit of passion which I allowed myself only turned to anger shortly after. I actually felt stupid for allowing myself to think there was a little hope.
I'm too old to and have seen too much to allow myself to be continuously angry or frustrated over something like football. There ARE so many more important things in this world.
So I've turned down my internal 'fan-o-meter' and will wait out the season and - very very likely - approach next season with great skepticism. Too many times being burned over the last few years.
I'm still a fan and always will be- but I want to keep a healthy heart. My passions will be going elsewhere for a while until my team returns. They don't have to win it all but they do have to provide a minor display of competency on the field.
The TiCats are beyond a toasted season;
they are beyond becoming a laughing stock;
THEY ARE A COMPLETE EMBARRASSMENT TO THE CFL!
The biggest thing I fear when I see games like Saturday, or the 29-0 debacle vs. Winnipeg... how many people are tuning in their TV for the first time, and this is their initial exposure to the league? Gimme a break.
If that's the best Hamilton could do, they might as well have sent Saskatchewan a concession fax and saved a pile of wasted money on airfare & hotels.
