Tried to respond to this but my head exploded a few times.

Hands down the most incomprehensible, nonsensical, brain-melting posts on this forum.

Not a lot of new information but here is one current take on the subject:

Yup, I'll save the TL;DR crowd the time... it's the same old same old.

It's now mid-week and we hopefully will be getting some hard details soon...

Well we re headed for Thursday and not a peep, certainly doesn?t look good. I understand the players stance in they can?t make it to for 1/3 of their salary even though they?re playing only 1/3 of the season, I m thinking that?s where it ends. As near and dear as the league is to many of us, it?s simply not that big a deal in the grand scheme of things.

There were too many obstacles to overcome both financially and from health points of view.

Plus the "solution" is to start a season in Winnipeg in October. Like, why? I don't get it.

Agree, no one is specifically to blame as it is a complicated process but the CFL is gradually squandering the opportunity to engage fans, starting in Oct. the CFL is almost becomes an afterthought which could get lost in the shuffle instead of grabbing the spotlight.

That's why I suggested Vancouver as a better alternative to have a later and even longer season in a climate controlled stadium.

Of course there were other potential issues with Vancouver. However being able to play in November, December and even January would have been possible.

Well the negotiation was extended to this week. It's Friday and all I hear is crickets. Sad

I wasn't expecting success but the lingering false hope is like a wound not healing.

Can we make a final decision and put this to rest?
