Bob, on behalf of myself and my family who came to the game on Labour Day and then made the trip again on Saturday, I want to thank you for your patience.
Obviously you probably are getting incredibly tired of the teams performance as are we as the fans but I just wanted to thank you for putting your money behind the team. If anything I think you may be getting angry with your football operations people whom you have been paying well to get the team back to prominence.
The slams you have received have been very unfair in my opinion given that you are not a football person but a huge fan like the rest of us.
I for one hope you stay as the owner for a very long time. I also hope that you are rewarded for your major investment into the team and community with several Grey Cups.
I want to thank the players for coming out and signing autographs for the fans after a poor result on Saturday.
I have no doubt that many if not all of you were incredibly frustrated but my son and daughter never saw that from any of you including Casey, Jesse, Zeke, Terry Cauley, Nick Setta, Nic Kordic, Quinton Porter and on and on. All of whom were great even some apologizing for the game result.
And yes there will be some who will say you should apologize, but I disagree. In fact I was rather embarrassed as some fans took the opportunity at the autograph signing to tell you what you already knew and as far as I know none of them has ever played professional anything let alone football.
We are a passionate fan base and there is a huge history of great teams with winning records and Grey Cups which is why we almost wish we could will you to win but it is a game and I for one believe our return to respectability is coming and I will continue to cheer for the team until it does and I hope our great owner is here as well.
My kids and I definitely didn't like the score but we still had a good day together and I thank you all for that.
We wish Charlie Taffe well but hope that this signals an improvement in the quality of play and results.
