Quote from: TecnoGenius on May 15, 2022, 12:12:11 AMCFLPA should publicly release their position, too. The league position seems reasonable. If CFLPA holds out, we should know why. I'm sure they would have their (good) reasons.
Quote from: gobombersgo on May 15, 2022, 02:30:05 AMSure but that's just a formality as all teams buy the game. I know the cost used to be around 3 million.If it's a deal breaker maybe the players can ask for the cost of the game to go up to 3.5m (using the number as an example) and the players split up the 500k.
Quote from: Blue In BC on May 15, 2022, 01:10:34 PMI don't get what the CFLPA isn't getting that they want? I was actually quite surprised on the all the new things the players were getting. What am I missing? Best guess is they want the effective date for 2022 and not 2023. After losing the 2020 season and part of 2021, I don't think that's a reasonable position. The 7 year deal might be the sticking point but there is a lot of money going forward.A strike may result in another shortened season. Pre season may be toast which is bad for the teams and rookies.Roster cut down for another 10 players would have been Tuesday. Unfortunately those players probably just lost any opportunity to make a real impression. May as well send them home today with the other cuts that were scheduled for yesterday.All in all it's a depressing outcome.
