You have the AAF and XFL, neither have a ratio and both also pay in USD. Why don?t you just play there?

May be in response to this

I don?t like to get on this topic but... when Canadian players go to Nfl it?s no ratio.... also Americans don?t get paid more because of nationality

Good for him.  I am sick of seeing guys like Lemon and Dennis complaining about how the AAF is better and whatnot.  Just go there, nobody would miss them..

honestly, it's no different than any 'employee' on the job... no employee ever feels like they are compensated enough/fairly, that assignments are not assigned fairly, and that promotions aren't bias if they are being completely honest... there are multiple members here on this forum that have said that they don't think the minimum league salary is truly enough...

I'd go as far to say that if Andrew Harris was being completely honest that he would not say that he is compensated fairly for his actual contributions to the team compared to what others are being paid league wide...

Lot's of CFL players going at it on Twitter,

Here is an exchange between Anthony Orange and Ricky Foley.


Anthony Orange

@AJJefferson
 ? 5h
Replying to @DenOfHoneyCakes @Foley4Real
Leverage is leverage but once Youre vetted and in this league your film should be your leverage, not your passport. If I?m an allstar, a rookie Canadian should not make more than me. It?s that simple. Pay scale needs works. Forget ratio. This is Canadian football no denying that.


Ricky Foley

@Foley4Real
Tottally agree...CDN backup can?t be making $100-150k and starting vet American making 60k. That?s a problem
