Did you know?

During the time Mack Yoho played with the Ottawa Rough Riders, he on-field play

didn't live up to expectations of his teammates and fans.  He was finally cut by head

coach Frank Clair in September, 1959.  Mack was quoted as saying, "I'm really sorry

I wasn't able to live up to expectations, and to help the club.  I can't even explain how I

played as poorly as I did."

"I liked playing here very much, and would have enjoyed being a part of the Riders for all

of my career.  I can honestly say that I even like the fans here, even though they were

on my back.  You could hardly blame them."

How do you think a player of today would respond to this situation?  Mr. Yoho showed

a great deal of class with such a statement.  He quickly moved on to have a fine career with

the AFL Buffalo Bills.
