It's the middle of August. There will not be a 2020 CFL season. It pains me to say it but I think we just need to accept the reality of the situation here.

There is also a story on 3down saying that the Argos have been against a 2020 consistently, and they are not the only team.  The 3 community teams all want to play, but some of the private owners don't want to take the hit.   That would explain all the dithering....

Que Taps. It's over for 2020. Bummer but expected.

An interesting comment on Google about negotiations for a new CBA. A question whether players would be paid for the 2020 season if it's cancelled. I'd take that to suggest a full salary payout for the season was the talking / sticking point.

I can't see how any team could actually afford that cost.

One team reported that if there was a partial season, at least 5 players would not participate. 3 Canadian and 2 import starters. I suspect that might have been Hamilton since we'd already heard that Bank and Breaux would not participate. Doesn't really matter which team but shows the chaos.

In addition speculation was that only 75% of players across the league give or take would consider playing.

All in all just more reasons why a partial season made no sense whatsoever.

Jeff Hamilton just tweeted
It's been a weird day looking into the #CFL. But after a number of calls already, I'm left with two feelings: there will be no final decision made today on 2020 and, stay with me here, there's more optimism now than I've heard in weeks. Still feels like a major long shot.

Didn't slow down the  NHL

A fair point but it also did prevent MLB. We're also now seeing at uptick in new Covid cases in air travel to and within Canada.

I'll believe it when I see it but there seem to be more problems than just a gov't loan. That's what we heard from the private owners and some players.
