Please publish the roster and / or depth chart when it's available. That will clarify whether a couple of players not listed on the roster are still attending. Also might advise any no shows or medical failures.

Well I am excited for the rookie camp this whole CFLPA/CFL bargaining and strike threat is souring me on the whole CFL experience this year.

Same here...with so many sports options in the city now, the Bombers and CFL can't afford to be turning people off.

Will rookie camp even happen if the CBA issue isn't resolved? It's only two days away.

In theory yes. The non report wasn't supposed to start until TC start date on May 19. Kind of a catch 22 if rookie camp goes ahead and then everyone gets sent home.

Talks were scheduled to begin again today IIRC.

i hope this CFL - CFLPA labour dispute will not ruin what could be the Bombers best off-season thus far.

Hopefully, that's the case and they figure it out soon.

Rookie Camp Preview with Kyle Walters - Ed Tait

Kyle Walters has been doing this general manager thing long enough to understand the importance of not speaking in hyperboles and instead adhering to the principle of trying to under-promise and over deliver.

The Winnipeg Blue Bombers GM is part of a crew that has put together the second-best regular season record in the Canadian Football League to the Calgary Stampeders over the last three years but - and yes, yes, yes, they're aware - have yet to see it pay off on the last Sunday in November.

"I like our roster," the Bombers GM stated during a media conference call on Monday. "The general sentiment in that locker room is we've had a couple of good years. We just need to take that next step.

"You can't just turn it on halfway through the year, particularly in the West where if you lose two or three games you think you maybe should have won in the summer you're not going to win the West. It just doesn't happen like that. You need to start Day 1 training camp competing and pushing knowing that anything, the slightest fall, means it's highly likely you're going to be out of winning the Western Division. And the best way of getting to the Grey Cup is to win that West and it starts with Day 1 of training camp."

The Bombers - or wannabe Bombers - will first step on the field Wednesday afternoon with the first of three rookie camp sessions. Walters weighed in on that and took a peek ahead to the scheduled opening of main camp on Sunday in his media session.

Here are the highlights...

4 drafted global players will be at rookie camp? Ok but it would help when they announce those signings when it happens and clarify the ratio aspect.

I wasn't even aware there were 4 players drafted. I thought the entire pool was only 18 with a one round draft. Nothing like keeping fans well informed.

3 from Mexican draft, and 1 from Europe, I believe.

It's possible they are not signed yet but brought in for a workout.

The simple solution is to update the roster at least once a week. I see the Florida mini camp QB McQuire is also attending.

BTW we've never been informed exactly about how the global players fit into the ratio equation.
