I don't understand why you feel then need to change the topic and make such a topic . First of all Beasley is not a veteran as you say . He IS 25 and has spent a few years in Winnipeg with spot starts. I have not "Fallen in love : with this guy and I would consider him more of a breakthrough player than a veteran . SO what does this leave you ? What is your pont exactly ? I liked his game as he was physical and came from a good school ( TEXAS ) . Also , our dbacks weer brutal last year and I felt a competant guy like him was a welcome addition .
I have welcomed veterans in the pasty yes . One would be James Patrick and that was a good signing. I was pulling for a veteran to sign on the DLINE only because they needed somene to show them how to play DLINE in the CFL as many of the younger guys were getting tricked and making bad decions comitting too soon etc . Even NFL castoff Crable looked lost out there.
Even if I did like Veterans and if BEASLEY was a veteran , Is it a negative to come on here and discuss my thoughts with other Ticats fans . I like to follow the ticats and make comments on the ticats decisions and moves as you do .
I mean I was glad to see Vets like Eiben go as I felt it was time to give some of the younger guys a shot and he was not quite the same anymore .
I was OK with Rey WIlliams getting cut as his salary was high and last year he was always out of position and not getting the job doen whether that was a team problem or his he still did not perform . I was also glad to see veteran Porter move on and get a fresh start and we can give a chance to Lefevour ...I was also Ok with Otis Floyd and Avon Colburne being let go as they cost alot and their best days are behind them.
Should you not be gald that there are people like me watching the Ticats closely and commenting on every move on here . I live in Toronto now and it is hard to find many hard core CFL fans these days .
My opinion is that anyone that is Ticats fan and wants to Ticats is a friend of mine and I have time for them .
