Because there is no jurisdiction in Canada that recognizes a health exemption based on religious beliefs. For anything, not just COVID vaccine.Unvaxxed players are going to have a hard time getting signed, and I hive to wonder how many will "miraculously" get a "legitimate" J&J vaccine card, like certain players seem to have done recently... now with people paying people to go in and get vaccinated in their names... there is no way to actually know who is safe and who isn't. Even an antibody test is not 100% proof of vaccine, every body has a different level of antibody production, and now with asymptomatic Omicron being the norm rather than the exception, there's that too.Short of a player admitting to falsifying documents, is going to be hard to prove vaccine status next season.
Quote from: Blue In BC on January 13, 2022, 05:44:22 PMI agree. Just saying considering the possible options he'd be an upgrade.However I had mentioned earlier that I'd take T. Harris for the right money. I don't see him with any options to land a starting role.
Quote from: ichabod_crane on January 15, 2022, 09:26:06 PMHarris still hoping he can be the starter somewhere, but at his age I can't see many gambling on him for that role. Maybe at best a 1B or backup role where he has a good chance of becoming the starter if the current starter is unproven. Or he could just wait things out and wait during the season when some QB goes down and he swoops in at starter's money. NOt sure what he is thinking. I think at this stage to become a potential starter he has to look at Ottawa and maybe BC (if Reilly in fact does retire or gets axed). Chris Jones is a bit of a wild card, would he bring him back to Edmonton? He has a much youngers starter(s) right now to build a team from. Pinball may gas MBT too and bring in Harris. All other teams kind have banked on their starters (Bombers will WHEN they sign Collaros). He is only going to get backup offers from these other teams is my guess.
Quote from: Throw Long Bannatyne on January 16, 2022, 03:14:02 PMI don't foresee any problems re-signing Collaros and I don't expect him to hold Walters for ransom as he basically re-sparked Zach's football career, but I believe if need be, Trevor Harris could step in and absolutely make the Bomber offence hum.

Quote from: DM83 on January 19, 2022, 12:26:51 PMHarris and Massoli are due to retire(Best before date is past due.)Backups, in the twilight of their career.Harris with a good O-line and good receivers might still be effective.Massoli has been fairly good. He scrambles and that buys him time to find open guys. But the last couple of years, he couldn't seem to do that.Certainly on a team with those characteristics, they could resurrect their glory days.
Quote from: Blue In BC on January 19, 2022, 01:06:43 PMMasoli is 3 days older than Collaros. IIRC Harris is a little younger than Collaros. Masoli nearly beat us in the Grey Cup. Calling them back up QB's is a little narrow of a view. Put Collaros on the Renegades in 2021 and you might have seen the same kind of lesser result.Would Collaros have survived playing in Vancouver with a bad OL and a bad run game.No dispute is a better QB than those replacement options but it is a team game. There are games where every QB has a " bad game " but victory is carried by the rest of the team.
Quote from: Pigskin on January 19, 2022, 05:53:48 PMNo doubt ZC8 does benefits from have one of the best OL in the CFL. Masoli did out play ZC8 for most of the GC. Masoli runs a little better, and more often. ZC8 knows are team and our O very well, and works well with Buck. ZC8 has won us back to back Grey Cups.
Quote from: Throw Long Bannatyne on January 19, 2022, 06:18:14 PMI'd prefer T. Harris over Masoli, he seems to be more focused and consistent and can get red hot at times. His biggest detraction has been scoring from the red-zone, I think that issue would vanish once lined up behind the Bomber O-line with the CFL's top running game at his back.None of these QB options are young, including Zach, so they are all short term solution. I doubt any will be the solution for anymore than the next 2 years. If need be plug the hole with a seasoned vet. and keep looking for the young phenom.
