Councillor Jackson said he doesn't want an asterisk beside his name indicating that it was on his watch that the Ti-Cats decided to leave Hamilton

I've always found Jackson's reference to an asterisk particularly presumptuious, self-promoting and wildly inflated considering the short memory of sports fans and the voting public and his non-role as City Council's most blatant panderer, not to mention in the shaping of our City.

He is referring, of course, to the proposed (it never happened) placement of an asterisk beside Roger Maris' name after he broke the world record for home runs of Hall of Famer Babe Ruth.

The only asterisk that will appear beside Jackson's name will read as follows: * any association between Tom Jackson, a world record, a Hall of Fame or any feat of greatness is entirely co-incidental.
