What happened to CFL week this year? They are working so hard to get a deal with the players they decided to cancel?

I thought it wasn't happening this year because of the contract agreements (the cflpa recommended the players not do any additional promotional work until they have a contract). That being said, I don't remember where I heard that, so can't quote a source or say it with 100% confidence. I'm sure someone here can confirm or deny it.

I suppose it will be interesting to see how they do in the combines. That said they need to determine how candidates would be viewed in regard to the CFL ratio. I don't see any way around  having to be classified as imports.

I read, I believe it was in The Sun, that it was going to be in Ottawa but that it might be cancelled because there was no contract agreement.

Looking for big things from Ingmar Gefiltefish and Pickled Herring. Of course they might just end up stinking up the joint.
