Before signing with the Stamps as a free agent, DeAngelis phoned Hamilton hoping to work out for his favourite CFL team but received the cold shoulder.
To this day, DeAngelis feels slighted by the gesture and although he won't name names, the man on the other end of the line was likely Tabbies special teams coach Jerome Erdman, who took over the role in 2004.
"I wanted to be a Hamilton Tiger-Cat. Now, looking back, I thank my lucky stars that I'm a Calgary Stampeder but, at the time, it was pretty emotional for me. Seeing the coach I talked to on the phone, I thought he treated me like a 13-year-old looking for autographs when I talked to him on the phone my senior year at Nebraska. I just felt very disrespected from him.
On the other hand - why didn't Sandro attend our free agent kickers camp? Did we have one last year?
