Any good fan will make a ton of excuses for the loss but here is one that makes a little sense so I think.
How long have the Argos core group been together (players and coaches)? Several seasons, this year they have a few new additions but the core has remained the same.
How long have the Ti-Cats been together? If you follow the team, you know you need a program to find out who is who.
It takes a while for a team to get together and trust one another. 2 pre-season games and a month of training camp isn't enough especially when most of the time is spent trying to impress the coaches enough to stick around.
Give these guys another 4 or 5 games and they will be fine.
Now about the penalties, they have nothing to do with unfamiliarity. These guys have been playing football for years and a penalty has always been a penalty. I don't care who it is, if it continues, there are a lot of other willing players who are more disciplined out there who can adequately take our undisciplined players spot.
There you go, see you at the ballpark!
