Pinball was on the Fan590 this morning & admitted that when the Argos were struggling, he met with team officials and offered to step down if they felt a coaching change was needed.
Plus, apparantly, he wanted to step down last year, but was convinced to stick around with the Grey Cup in Toronto this year.
Anyway, Pinball is a class act - as a coach, player and person. I hope that whatever he decides to do, he remains a positive advocate for Canadian football and the CFL in general.
If he does cut his ties with the Argos, I hope down the road he has a run as CFL commish. He's been a HOF player and head coach, very well connected throughout the league, a successful businessman and well thought of everywhere. He is one guy who I think could reach out beyond the usual fan community to the community-at-large and help build the CFL.
First things first though--a Grey Cup!

Evil Double blue or not I think pinball is one of the classiest coaches this league has seen in a long time and remember when he first became coach and was a player and a coach it was pretty cool good luck Pinball
