Anyone notice that winning an award nomination for the Ticats seems to be equivalent to a post-dated ticket out of town?
Some recent award winners who did not last much longer with the team:
- 2006: Tay Cody (reportedly), Rob Hitchcock
- 2005: DJ Flick, Adriano Belli, Wayne Smith, Agustin Barrenechea
- 2004: Troy Davis, Dedric Mathis, Dave Hack
Award winners (pre-2007) who are still with us:
- Jesse Lumsden, George Hudson, Lawrence Gordon, Julian Radlein. And that's it.
Suggestion: If you want to build a fan base, try to keep your star players with the team. I understand that turnover is inevitable when the team underperforms, but from now on maybe we should try to get rid of the actual underperformers.
