Pretty sure the fringe Canadians got enough votes together to not accept. As much as I like the CFL, I'd lock them out them out and throw away the key. There's no good option here.

Sure, a few Nat jobs get lost over the contract, which I still do not know how the ratio ends up... never saw not of that... but how do they get INT's to vote against it? 

Still don't know if they changed the Global situation... did they vote against too?

Most didn't. My guess (and I'm sure more details will be coming soon) is that Americans and Canadians are fighting and the Americans voted mostly for and many Canadians voted against. Most people on here seem to love all those fringe guys the CFL rules are endlessly protecting so this is an interesting twist. I guess we'll see just how much everyone likes those guys now.

Daaaamn so your telling me the Canadians don?t wanna play football in 2022? That?s crazy call up some CIS players !!! Let?s goooo


..it could get ugly. I went from disliking the ratio and begrudgingly tolerating the fringe Canadians to downright hating them. Contrary to what they might have been told, they do not make the CFL special and never have.

Canadians voting down the CBA = what happens when you get the inside lane in a race, and a head start, and get paid more. And then someone finally tells you that you might only get a head start and paid more and you're no longer guaranteed the inside lane so you throw a tantrum.

We don't know the percentage that voted it down. Stop speculating.  American players would also have had to vote against it.

Lots of people already speculating. Reporters and American players already.

@TimCBaines
An absolutely horrible decision, stoked by Canadian players. This will cost #CFL players money. If I'm the league, I take back all money concessions given.

I have been 100% behind the players, but this is BS.

The league bent on every issue, this is the best deal the players have ever seen and voting this down is just a smack right across the face of the PA and American members.

We don't know that. I kind of doubt it.

They aren't going to publish it (maybe it gets leaked) and maybe a few American players voted no but it is pretty clear already a Canadian issue with the ratio. They want those guaranteed spots and extra salary for being worse. Enough is enough. It's either a pro league or it's not.

@FarhanLaljiTSN
Now imagine being an US player on the verge of losing a pay check & looking across the dressing room at the CDN player who caused it. Even though the CND job was protected

Didn't see this coming. I'm not at a loss for words but whatever I'm thinking can't be posted.

Well this is something new.  I?ve never heard of a player membership voting down a recommendation from both their bargaining committee, and player reps.  Those locker rooms are gonna be heated.  One step forward, two steps back.

But how will Drew Wolitarsky, Geoff Gray and Jake Thomas get on the field?! *Shocked face* it wouldn't be a league without them! Vote it down! No tickets will be sold if Gray were to get beat out by a bit better offensive lineman!
