I believe Greg Marshall was overeanamoured with bringing Cdn College Talent into the League, as they were/are available at low cost, so you could beat the salary cap thing by having a reserve of funds for high priced imports like Holmes, Ranek, Maas, etc…and of course Caretaker is adhering to that League rule, which others, like the Argo’s are totally not! (Allan, Wynn, Williams, Avery etc etc all within salary cap? I think not! Put the bright lights into Pinballs face and ask if his team doesn’t “cheat”!)
Yes, when the NFL cuts come along, Ronnie will reconfigure the team as it needs to happen, and the bodies/personalities get available. Likewise, you might see where guys like Ranek gain enormous trade value, as injuries happen with other clubs.
Some beefing up of our linebacking and re-establishing some secondary players (I’m talking about you, #20!) will likely be in order.
Be calm all. We are rebuilding.
Note the Argo’s are not.
Don’t see the Al’s “rebuilding”, and they are due to lose Matthews in fairly short order, and they are getting overaged.
Ottawa will be reserrected sooner or later, but I think we can survive that better than other Eastern conference teams, including Wpg.
We might be sitting pretty shiney in 2007/8 compared with the rest of the Division.
Lets keep this team, such as it is, together, and “learning” for ther rest of the year…
