Fire da bum, fans may say
But there's more to Taaffe
than a 2-7 mark,
just look west to Maciocia
and his recovery

I totally agree with Steve.
I am waiting for the 'fire da bum crowd'
to deny even one thing Steve said here
they have ridiculed myself and others
for making many of the same points.
[i]'If the Tiger-Cats were to change coaches now[/i], there would be no chance of making the playoffs.
and [i]the club wouldn't even
be getting a head start on next year [/i]
because the real candidates for a head coaching job
are already employed elsewhere.'
The italicized words above are absolutely valid and yet
the 'fire da bum' crowd have often allowed their emotions
to block their basic logic and deny them forcefully
because they would feel good to see someone punished.
I assume they couldn't help themselves at the time,
so if they don't rant about what Steve said now,
maybe I should find it in my heart to forgive them.
