Comiskey
Braidwood
Goss
Barrachnea
Ralph

and a Grey Cup

How much better would the ticats be with those five NI starting for them...

The cats also have Thompson.

Commy and Braidwood are injured a lot. Goss is their best DB, Barrachnea is average and Ralph absolutely sucks this year and is on the 9 game.

Troy Davis and Comiskey did help them win the GC that year they were traded.

Comiskey, Ralph and Goss didn't want to be here. Ralph for different reasons than the other two but I'm glad he's gone either way.

Augie was soft as a MLB and was replaced MORE than capably by a guy who's name escapes me ( :wink: ). Braidwood would be the only good fit here, but I'm sure he would have been dealt for a bag of balls to some other team by now anyway.

Who did we trade Goss for again...? OHHHH YEA THATS RIGHT for the rights to timmy chang....that deal turned out to be great....who did we trade Barrenenchea for...? OHHHH YEAA thats right we got Jason Nedd.

:D

I think he left out a few facts to put more of a positive spin in Edmonton's favour but overall they did win most of the trades.

We're finally paying for fleecing Edmonton in '66 -'67.

We sent them Gerry MacDougall (got cut in TC), Don Sutherin (who refused to report and ended up in Ottawa), Frank Cosentino (who did nothing in Edm) and Ed? Ernie? Turek (ditto).

All we got:
Bill Redell fine DB and back-up QB for a few years here
All-Canadian Tommy-Joe Coffey a few years as an All-Star and All-Canada, Wall of Fame.

I think we got another couple of players too who were here for a year or two and helped us win '67 GC. (mightypope will know)

You forgot about Jason Maas.

We got RLC , Danny Mac and Darren Flutie and 2 Grey Cup appearances and a Grey Cup !!!!

What about Peterson, this guy is quietly becoming one of the best receivers in the league. That's why the rebuilding of the TiCats is so slow because we have to rebuild all these other teams at the same time. And it looks like Obie will be no better.

There were Free agents not trades.
