As much as I like what Ron Lancaster has brought to the CFL in terms of past performance, Ron is a very unsucessful coach.
You need to get him out of the organization as well. The players do not respect him and if you look at his past coaching performance with Edmonton and Hamilton, sub par performance. Ron has made it very clear he does not want to coach. So why would you place a person in a position where he does not to be ?
Get rid of the old guard and let him go and retire. We need new fresh ideas with solid past coaching performance. A true winner would fit this organization.
Ron Lancaster has been in Hamilton since 1998
when Flutie and Dmac where traded from Edmonton. Lancaster IS the old gaurd. And your coments re Marshal; Marshal was a very poor choice for a Head Coach position. A poor communicator and he could not control his temper. Could not win the big game when needed. We would be far better off if both of these guys are gone. One down and one to go.
OH...but how you refuse to acknowledge that Lancaster is the only one left of the Original bunch from when Bob Young bought the Team!Stop blaming this mess on Marshall! He was not the GM...Lancaster was! Lancaster then moved up to assist Katz. Lancaster then took over from Marshall...we got worse! How many points did we score??? Oh Yea!
Give it a rest! Lancaster had his finger in all this and now he can work his way out of it! i wish him well! by firing PaoPao he is admitting a mistaske was made in the hiring process! It was evident after game 2 and they fired the wrong guy!
Now that the first problem has been taken care of...FINALLY...lets Lancaster finish out the year without calling for his head!
They are looking for a new HC and the assistants will follow! The players and Lancaster now have the opportunity to show what they can do without the influence of PaoPao!
I hope the team rallys around each other and pulls off a couple of wins at the expense of the Argos!
What self respecting coach would accept this position for the remaining 7 games of the season, knowing he will quite likely be removed as part of next years direction? Ronnie has got to have a big head, for he's got so many hats to wear.
