Bra­ley doesn’t de­serve crit­i­cism

The Hamilton Spectator - - OPINION -

RE: Time count vi­o­la­tion, Toronto (Jan. 25)

I fail to see the ra­tio­nale for Drew Ed­wards’ gra­tu­itous crit­i­cism of David Bra­ley for his own­er­ship pe­riod of the Toronto Arg­onauts. Mr. Ed­wards him­self ar­tic­u­lates the rea­sons why the league needs a suc­cess­ful fran­chise in Toronto (“it’s the me­dia, busi­ness and ad­ver­tis­ing cap­i­tal of this coun­try ...”) yet had Mr. Bra­ley not stepped up and bought the team when all of the mil­lion­aires in Toronto closed their cheque­books, there likely would not even be a team in that city now for Mr. Ed­wards and oth­ers to write about. The same goes not only for the BC Lions but for our own Ti­cats as well some years pre­vi­ous, two other fran­chises he res­cued from obliv­ion. Brian Kelly, Hamil­ton
