excerpt..."I love the game of football and I love
the Hamilton community," Radlein said this week,
adding he is eager to return to be a part of
the Hamilton turnaround which he feels
is just around the corner.
"I envision a lot of success.
I think we're going to have a nice balanced attack," said Radlein,
adding he already has established a "chemistry"
with tailbacks Jesse Lumsden and Terry Caulley.
More than anything Radlein wants to win for Hamilton.
"I'm a competitor. I may not be the fastest guy,
or the strongest guy or the biggest guy
but I'm going to get it done," he said.
Head coach Charlie Taaffe said earlier this month
he didn't know just how the Jamaican-born banger
will fit in with the Steeltown squad.
But surely the Tiger-Cats have to find more use
for a veteran Canadian on a club that featured
the most youthful contingent of Canuck starters
in the league.
The days of the dominant dreadlocks bruising upfield
with more than a few flare passes might not be over just yet.
