From Dave Naylor:


Consensus from taking to CFL coaches and GM?s here in Mexico City: Of 50 players here, a half-dozen would not look out of place in a CFL camp, another dozen could be developed into camp-worthy players, and roughly 30 have no pro potential. #CFL

What a colossal waste of time.

So, can we trade up for Edm's first overall? Wink   Maybe the rights to DD?

Sucks that there are 6 players worth drafting, and Edm will be skipping theirs and we pick 8th...

Certainly there is nothing in it in the short term.  I don't think even the half dozen players are going to have much luck competing against NCAA Americans for a roster spot, and it would be a disaster to tweak the ratio to accommodate them.  And while in theory, the Mexican league could offer a post-university opportunity for USports guys to keep developing, in reality the supply and demand for Canadian players is pretty well balanced.  Across the league, practice rosters are littered with Canadians who are long shots to develop into roster players and just don't have the measurables.  Even if a kid went to the Mexican league for a year or two, he is probably only improving his game to the level where he can make a practice roster or compete for the 44th roster spot.

Having said that, if this partnership can interest the Mexican viewing public in following our league, that is definitely worth doing.  Streaming revenues are going to become more important to the league's financial health, not less.  I'm just not sure what he mechanism is.

As a marketing ploy, it is a lot cheaper than a US expansion, and who knows if it can open up a market for viewers that don't want to watch football from "over the wall", but rather from a friendly trading partner...

I feel like this has not been explicitly stated yet. Even GMs seem confused about what the implications will be.

I don't really have a huge problem with this Mexican expansion. Most seem incredibly opposed and I see no harm in trying to expand the market. However, it seems like this has been rushed in before certain things have been decided. All of these things should have been planned out beforehand and there's no way that is the case.

Well every player regardless of nationality status has to beat out another player to make the roster. In that sense it doesn't really matter.

It would be counter productive to label them as nationals if they don't fit the normal test in the CFLPA. Certainly don't want a 3rd category to get them on rosters.

It will be interesting to see if it ends up being an 11th PR development spot, which negates the need for a draft / protected players...

Maybe a 55th player spot with a 53 man AR...  both additional spots protected for non nat/int player (looking forward at the fact they are planning a similar tactic for Germany next year...)  Maybe changing the definition of Int to American. 

Regardless, it soundbites talking about CFL in the offseason, focusing on new directions and development.  If one or two of the drafted players hit the field, it will garner eyeballs south of the borders.  (There are also a lot of Mexicans who live in the USA and watch ESPN...)

Do we know which 6 are the magic 6. Or the 18 who could be in camps?

Of the first three overall selections, two are kickers, enough said about the talent level based on that alone. Everyone knows kickers aren't real football players.
