Angelo Mosca shoots from the hip, and he was at it again on Tuesday, perhaps vocalizing a widespread chorus shared by football fans in tough-luck Tigertown.

“(Head coach George Cortez) just wasn’t a fit with this organization. He didn’t have time to talk to people. Just not fit to be a head coach, there’s no other way to put it,” the 76-year-old former Hamilton Tiger-Cats great said from his St. Catharines home.

“He had a good opportunity, but he didn’t have the right attitude. He stood on the sidelines with a pen up his nose.”
