Little Bit of This, Little Bit of That

The Cats seem to have found their man to replace Bob O'Billovich when he decides to step down (probably after the 2011 season) in Joe Womack.

Womack has been hired to serve as assistant General Manager, and he will be the successor to Obie when he decides to ride off into the sunset.

I will freely admit to knowing next to nothing about Joe Womack. We'll see how he works out in a year or two.

In other news, the Argos are signing some of their potential free agents, but one seems to be hitting the market – one that would look phenomenal in Black & Gold. That one is Lin-J Shell.

I am a big fan of Shell. The Cats need help in the Secondary; Shell is a Defensive Back.

Yes, last year the Cats "raided" the Argos for two DBs, and that turned out terribly. But neither Jason Shivers nor Will Poole is as talented as Shell. I hope to see Shell at a news conference holding up his new Hamilton Tiger-Cat jersey sometime in mid-February.

  1. Womack has a lot of experience with the league. And many talented players have come to Saskatchewan while he has been there. I don't know how many he personally had a hand in finding, but guys like Weston Dressler, Hugh Charles, and James Patrick were signed while he was directing U.S. scouting.

    Marshall (and even Hall) signing with the Riders may be a battle lost. But taking Womack from them may be more beneficial to the war.
