GM should step aside

The Hamilton Spectator - - OPINION - RE: Ti­cat coach­ing con­tro­versy

Re­mem­ber the sta­dium de­ba­cle? Both sides stat­ing at the be­gin­ning that no one wanted to end up back at Ivor Wynne, only to end up back at Ivor Wynne, be­cause Scott Mitchell be­lieved he could black­mail the city with a threat to take his ex­cel­lent team to greener pas­tures if he didn’t get his tail­gate Val­halla next to a ma­jor high­way? Re­mem­ber the al­most-Alder­shot Ti­cats?

The same Scott Mitchell whose com­pas­sion for bros is so deep he will try to re­ha­bil­i­tate the ca­reer of Art Briles, a self-styled staunch church­go­ing man of faith who didn’t feel it nec­es­sary to re­port the at-least 52 rapes com­mit­ted by 31 of his play­ers to au­thor­i­ties, who in­deed tried to cover up sev­eral cases of rape and as­sault.

The same Scott Mitchell who felt no awk­ward­ness an­nounc­ing his act of com­pas­sion on a day the Cats held a women’s clinic for fe­male fans. Good job, Scott. Sports Il­lus­trated has dubbed the Ti­cats “ap­par­ently the most tone-deaf fran­chise in the world.”

Scott should show sim­i­lar com­pas­sion to women and to Ti­cat fans by join­ing Mr. Briles in Bro-Halla. Owen Mahoney, Dun­das
