Bob O’Billovich wants to take
the Hamilton Tiger-Cats back in time.
The former B.C. Lions player-personnel director
took over as G.M. of the Ticats on Wednesday
with visions of restoring a franchise
that once dominated the CFL
with tough, rugged play
- especially on defence.
“This franchise has always had a history
of hard-nosed, tough football teams,”
"I think you need tough guys to win with
and guys who can compete, guys
who can play when they’re hurt.
"We’ve got a lot of work to do
but my thought has always been
that I wanted an aggressive football team
that played the entire 60 minutes
and that’s what we’re going to be striving for."
