Barker versus Beveridge, Debate Over
I suppose I should say something about Ticat starting safety Sandy Beveridge's sudden retirement part way through the season to join the Hamilton Fire Department. Besides the obvious that Barker gets the job, I'm not really sure what to say. If the CFL was more successful and had a higher salary cap these types of stories would probably happen less, although they are somewhat uncommon. One wonders if the Cats were 3 and 1 rather than 1 and 3 if the same thing happens. Also this story bolsters Tigercatatonia's thoughts that police and firemen's pay in the city are seriously out of wack on a supply and demand basis, but this is a football blog, not a libertatian screed so I'll just leave it at that.
