Ironic that he doesnt talk about himself staying out of the football operations and sticking to the business side of things. Perhaps if he did his job and left others to do theirs, things could have worked out much better in Hamilton.
I'm sure the fact that daddy is a big wig in the league played no factor in choosing the President over the GM of the team. The GM inherited a mess and was NOT given enough time to right the ship. I could understand this decision being made if the Cats were again 3-15 next year, but no, as usual in Hamilton the revolving door keeps going and management makes a knee-jerk reaction based on ONE season.
I do not know if any of you actually paid attention this year and saw the difference between last years team (4-14) and this years team (3-15).
-How many times were they absolutely blown out this year? Last year?
-How many times were they shut out offensively this year? Last year?
-How many close games did they lose this year? Last year?
The point is, this team made some good strides this year despite the overall record and has a good base in place for next year on both sides of the ball. Will it all work out to a 1st place finish and a Grey Cup in the next year or two? It may and it may not. However what is a guarantee is that by the time that 2-3 year time period elapses, those responsible for that particular outcome will be long gone due to the "revolving door" mentality that has been in Hamilton for years.
Changes had to be made in order to get to the next level next season. As far as I'm concerned, the wrong ones have been made to date including today's decision.
