Now, can we get back to foot­ball?

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

Un­til the other day I had never heard the name Art Briles, and I’m bet­ting nei­ther had thou­sands of other Ti­cat fans. Some­times when a new coach comes in he likes to have fa­mil­iar faces around him and in this case, I’m bet­ting that’s what hap­pened.

Cer­tainly Scott Mitchell and Bob Young knew about his past and tried to fly un­der the radar with this hir­ing. Ob­vi­ously how­ever there are many who do know about Art Briles and his past and were not happy about the de­ci­sion to bring him to Hamil­ton. Well as we all know, the back­lash was so quick and se­vere that the Cats did the right thing and put the ki­bosh on it im­me­di­ately. That be­ing said, what’s done is done, they made a mis­take and quickly atoned for it.

Now, can we get back to foot­ball? The new coach is chang­ing start­ing QBs, we need a win badly, and Labour Day would be a great place to get it. Dwelling on this week will not help any­thing. Let’s move on. Carl W. Am­bridge, Hamil­ton
