Austin isn't going anywhere. The facts are that he has consistently made this team a contender. This year is the only exception to that rule, and we have key injuries (Tolliver, Fantuz, Craig Butler, Emanuel Davis, Simoni, etcetera) that directly contributed to that. I'm just as mad as anyone that we stunk the joint out last night, but up until that point, the team had been getting better every week.
If Austin is fired in Hamilton, another CFL team will hire him immediately. He is a good football coach/evaluator of talent, and those guys typically are in demand/get paid what Austin is currently being paid in Hamilton.
That said, I believe that for whatever reason, some players are currently not buying into what the coaches are game planning. So if we lay down against Edmonton in our next game, I think it very likely that a high profile player will be released, or traded, as a way of waking members this team up to the possibility that they may be next.
