Podskee Wee Wee, Episode 94

On this week’s episode, Mike and I discuss the Ticats’ win over the Als last Friday and give a bit of a season wrap up as well. We then discuss the hullabaloo caused by Drew Edwards’ article about players not wanting Kent Austin to return next season (and what his return could mean for the futures of people like Brandon Banks and June Jones). We also discuss the Ticats’ award winners and what their chances are for winning the East Division nominations before then telling you who we think will take home the hardware in Ottawa during Grey Cup week and discussing the changes made to the All-Star format. We then end things off by making our picks for the East and West semifinal, and answering four excellent listener questions.

  1. You’re absolutely right Josh and Mike… Bob Young is misguided. You could see how happy an always classy Luke Tasker was in presenting in front of teammates the game ball to June Jones after his first game as the Ticats head coach and the surrounding uplifting aura then and through the final game despite the ups and downs and missing the playoffs. The bottom line is that most of the ‘kids’ buy into the system and love playing for Coach Jones. Whereas as the record shows, most of the team have tuned out Kent Austin and don’t enjoy playing for him. Can’t wait to see June Jones at the helm on the sidelines next June… and Bob Young better make sure he does everything to facilitate this as it will be in both his and the fans best interest.

    Josh Smith is still an id iot.

  3. Good job Josh. Don’t let these other weenies dissuade you from writing your beat.

  4. Naive! ha ha ha ha ha. Now isn’t that like the pot calling the kettle black. Bob Young might be feeling a little frisky because his organisation is currently making money, but the last decade or so has been a litany of bone headed ideas and miscues following the advice of supposed “people in the know”. Even with a gift horse like a new stadium, free courtesy of the Pan Am games, his brain trust still couldn’t avoid inhaling equine halitosis while alienating large segments of the City of Hamilton.
    There’s still something rotten in Ticat land and it is NAIVE to think that a team that came within an illegal block on a punt return of winning a Grey Cup should venerate the person who reduced that squad to a bungling 0 and 8 mess that was humiliated in its final game by 60 points!
    Maybe the stubbornness of repeatedly starting the same QB, who he had so eagerly overpaid, to guide an offensive system which was so obviously unequipped to handle opposition defenses should have provided a clue. Or perhaps his accosting opposition players and referees on the sidelines, should have caught our eye. Or perhaps the sarcastic responses to questions in press scrums after games was indicative of something awry.
    Every time a pass sails into Greg Ellingson’s secure grip I’m reminded that Kent Austen isn’t perfect. The fact that current Ticats see him as a liability perhaps shouldn’t come as a surprise and shouldn’t be summarily dismissed.
