So, Milt should be fired for homerism too?

When did Stegall ever say the Bombers should exceed the SMS cap and pay a fine in order to win a championship?

Is it legal to exceed the SMS cap and pay a fine?

So, advocating doing the most you possibly can, within the rules, to win is wrong?

Its not like he said they should pay Fajardo's wife under the table so that he can take a smaller paycheck...

I also think this is a nothing-burger.

Part of the charm of all these guys is that they are fervent fans of the league and the teams that they represent.

They're not league officials - they have no bearing on what happenes on the field.

They can say what they want.

If they can say that seriously, it is an indication that the penalties are not severe enough. The original idea was to penalize a mistake not an on purpose. When it becomes a strategy it is time to beef up the penalty.

That, I can agree with.

"If you ain't cheatin', you ain't tryin hard enough."...

You can bet the Elks are going to have a suspicious cap this year (especially the head office cap), and CGY has always played fast and loose with the "rules". 

We get muckraked because Biggie has a job outside the Bombers here in WPG, and some think it is not legit.

I have no issue with any team using the full cap, including the fined buffers.  They were put there for "Oops" protection, but there is no rule against using them as part of your budget.  Just, if you "Oops" while already at the limit, you start losing picks...

I agree. Suits just made the point if you?re ever going to go over on the cap, and teams do, doing it when you?re hosting the grey cup is when you want to do this. Makes sense to me. Hold off on the pitch forks and torches and chill the heck out. Seriously, you can tell it?s the dead of winter and there isn?t much to talk sbout

He is right though. They should absolutely load up for a home grey cup date. However, yes. DONT come out and say it in print etc. Not classy lol

However, this is another case of CFL issue. Tell the FANS the penalties, make it draft picks. Publish ALL the cfl salaries like the rest of the leagues do. Get a better Fantasy football started. With real prizes. Stop chirping 4 downs. Spotlight the stars and most importantly the CDN stars...

its not against the rules to go over the salary cap. Suitor is 100% correct. In fact, there shouldn't even be a salary cap. Nonsense.

The league assesses a fine if teams exceed the salary cap.  Fines are assessed because rules were broken.  You are incorrect.

Imagine thinking no salary cap is good in pro sports.
