I don't think he ever officially signed a contract last year with the Riders.

This contract is for two years, through the 2020 season. IIRC, there's also an option for 2021.

Nope... but this game decided $450k in bonuses for Connor...

And what does that have to do with the next contract?

Gronkowski has retired from the NFL. Sad

The 'slippery slope' argument was used the last time the CFL reduced the number of mandated NI starters. It wasn't valid then. It isn't valid now.

Even if they reduce the number of NI's by 2 a team, they are still guaranteeing 19 Canadian jobs per team.

There is no ratio when it comes to GM's or coaches now. That argument is just a red herring.

This is way the ratio is silly. It's an arbitrary definition that people get all puffed up and patriotic about for fairly undefined reasons. Aardvark's version is no more odd than the league's. Ardent defenders of the ratio are actually ardent defenders of a series of oddly defined criteria that make up what qualifies. When you actually begin to look at these criteria you can quickly see that the whole thing is fairly headscratching. Why is it done? The most pressing answer is because it's always been that way.

A lot of it comes down to self-identity and heritage, many think preserving Canadian institutions is a worthy goal, others are more than happy to shop at Walmart.  We live beside the most powerful country in the history of the world with the largest marketing budget (of course it's better, just ask them!) if we do not care enough to preserve our own culture and institutions they will be taken from our control, and we won't get them back. 

Eliminating the ratio as some propose would leave the league in the control of American GM's, coaches and players and perhaps eventually American owners if there is enough money to be made.  What obligation will they see in preserving the league in it's current format or locations if it's not in their self-interest to do so?  Diminish the role of the Canadian players and the Canadian rules will soon follow IMO.
