I believe Marshall is willing to come on with the Cats, whether as the new DC or consultant to teach Creehan how to coach so long as he has an out in 2 years
I believe the Cats are interested in him but have to work out the deal with Sask
I believe the stumbling block is Sask, who understands that their likely only playoff hope is the cross over and that their main obstacle would be Hamilton, who only needs two more wins that Sask for the rest of the year and Sask is out. I believe they would rather eat Marshall's salary than give Hamilton any chance of squeezing them out of the playoffs, especially in that the balance of the schedule is tougher for Sask than Hamilton. The key games will be a pair against Toronto and they can determine not only the fate of Sask but of Hamilton
So I think Sask screws Hamilton and eats the salary, but they best watch out for this thing called karma.
On another note, for all those who posted that the Cats scored garbage points that were meaningless, please consider that we play the Argos 4 times this year, and if if we win two more than TO coming into the last game against the Argos, we would have to beat them and beat the total points battle. Losing by 11 and 3 points after our initial win, keeps us well in the hunt whereas if we had not scored the so called "garbage 14 points" at end, the point differential would have been insurmountable.
Perhaps kudos to Cortex for understanding the big picture that some of us emotional fans did not, and making sure that they kept the point differential down.
