heres what ti-cat owner, bob young, says aboput the loss;
"Don't judge ( GM ) Katz or the rest of our recruiting team for the players we lose to the NFL. Or to be precise you should judge them favourably on that account. It means that they are finding talent that even the NFL had overlooked.
The test is not who we lose, it is the quality of the players we find that counts. That the NFL wants our players is proof that we are beginning to recruit at the very high standard we need to, in order to be consistently successful.
Personally I've always been thrilled when a Joe Theisman, Warren Moon, or Kahllil Hill goes to the NFL and succeeds brilliantly. It proves the NFL game is no better than ours. It just pays better."
