Wow!...never saw that coming at all
Tiger-Cat press release:
Hamilton, Ontario – The Hamilton Tiger-Cats announced today that the team has released import kicker/punter Nick Setta.
“Nick was a respected member of this team and community as well as a hard worker both on and off the field. We would like to thank him for his contributions and wish him the best in the future,? said Head Coach Marcel Bellefeuille.
Good point. I wonder as well if since he is an American in a traditional Canadian position, even though he was doing both jobs, was also a factor. The BC Lions have two Canadian kickers that can do both jobs as well. I wonder if one will be coming here to fill this opening.
WHAT!? Really? Was it THAT bad last seasion that he isnt worth a off seasion to heal up and try again? Well, Heres to you nick! Thanks for the good times! Still shocked! Hopfully Obie has sumin up his sleeve!
Think this will free up much cap space, or is a Import kicker not worth much in the CFL?
If we're relying soley on Ito, i'll be terrified going into this season.Nick was a great kicker/punter and an even better person.Like I said, if we're doing this just for Ito then edge of your seat games would be an understatement.
I am somewhat schocked but not surprised why the team has marketed some palyers as home town heros and then has the gall to release them. Hard for the young fans to get connected whrn you keep the turn style spinning. As another person posted " I hope Obie can pull a rabbitt out of his hat. Perhaps " Judge Itto will be comimg to camp or a Canadian kicker who is able to punt and place kick is sitting in the wings????
