Some tips for the Ti­cats

RE: Tiger-Cat foot­ball

We at­tended a home game for the Ti­cats June 16. It was an ex­hi­bi­tion game, so it was not ex­actly sold out.

When my wife and I ar­rived at Tim Hor­tons Field, we were sur­prised to see large line­ups to en­ter all gates. I un­der­stand the rea­son: im­ple­ment­ing a new se­cu­rity check us­ing a wand as well as check­ing bags, purses, etc. We waited a full half-hour to en­ter. I hope the or­ga­ni­za­tion cor­rects the sit­u­a­tion.

The big­ger is­sue was that new se­cu­rity ar­eas were not cor­doned off prop­erly. A lot of cheaters were able to en­ter closer to front, by drift­ing to­ward the cen­tre of these two large lines. Po­lice were at the game but they did noth­ing to pre­vent those cheaters from butting in. My beef is not with the po­lice of­fi­cers. Ti­cats need to have those sim­ple bar­ri­ers that you see at banks, and air­ports, etc. to stop those cheaters from en­ter­ing ahead of oth­ers who ac­tu­ally waited in line.

Our next home game is Satur­day. I hope they can make a big im­prove­ment to fix the de­lay and deal with those cheaters. Of course, I re­ally want to see our beloved Ti­cats stop the los­ing skid! Tom Gabriel, Hamil­ton
