CFL releases statement on status of Euclid Cummings

TORONTO ? The Canadian Football League released the following statement on Wednesday about the status of Euclid Cummings:

?Upon learning of the criminal charges facing Euclid Cummings, CFL Commissioner Randy Ambrosie has voided his contract with the BC Lions. As these charges are before the courts, the CFL will offer no further comment.?

BC Lions general manager Ed Hervey?s statement regarding Cummings? voided contract reads as follows:

?We support the Commissioner?s decision to void the contract of Euclid Cummings in light of criminal charges he is currently facing. We were given no indication by the player or his representation that these charges existed and I assure our fans, partners and supporters of the CFL across Canada, that we would not have offered him a contract had we known about this situation. Given that matter is before the criminal courts and under a publication ban, we will not be offering further comment.?

Anyone now what Cummings is accused of doing?  

Makes you wonder if the Riders could get out of Duron Carter's contract for the same reason.

Possibly. My guess is that it's a more severe charge.

No idea.

But it sounds like the charges were laid prior to his contract being signed. In the case of Carter, the contract was signed prior to his being charged. Maybe that's the difference...?

Agreed.

Given BC's response that they would not have offered the contract if they had known about the charges, it makes me think domestic violence. But that is completely made up.

With Carter I'm pretty sure the charges occurred prior to the contract being signed.  Wasn't the violation in Winnipeg in November and he re-signed with the Riders in late January?

Good point. I can only assume the nature of the charges against Cummings are far more serious than those against Carter.

Aren't publication bans also often used when a minor is involved?

This now frees up $160k in SMS room for BC to spend on D. Might make them now the favourites to sign Muamba.

From Drew Edwards: This is shocking. I can't remember the league ever voiding a contract in this manner.

Muamba isn't a good fit at WIL and there is ZERO chance the defensive MOP at MLB ( Elimimian ) is sliding over to WIL.

Dunk said earlier that BC was an option, presumably with Muamba at WIL.
