Quote from: TecnoGenius on May 27, 2022, 02:09:33 AMWell, good news that now we'll play.Bad news that in the end it all turned silly. What did the players gain? Short-termism of more bribe money right now, plus put off the worst of the ratio nonsense until "down the road" where hopefully other players (not them) will have to deal with it.Does the full CBA text ever get published, or a very good and detailed summary?? I want to see precisely what they agreed to here. There could be slight reporting inaccuracies.In any event, I am happy it's done. If one side (or both sides!) made a mistake, that's on them now.
Quote from: Sir Blue and Gold on May 27, 2022, 02:47:41 AM3Down is reporting a slight variation to what Lalji reported earlier.Ratio stayed the same this year.In 2023, national starters go to 8, but one can be a nationalized American who can play an unlimited number of snaps. Two additional nationalized Americans can play 49% of snaps but cannot play the same side of the ball (so one offense, one defense, no special teams) In 2024, the league can add another nationalized American.So This year is 7 Canadian starters.Next year is 8 but 5 Canadians and one nationalized American plus two other nationalized Americans who play opposite sides of the ball and not special teamsThe year after is 8 but 4 Canadians and one nationalized American plus two other nationalized Americans who play opposite side of the ball and not special teams PLUS an additional nationalized American that I assume can play 49% of snaps on either side of the ball but that is not exactly clear....Got all that? Good.https://3downnation.com/2022/05/26/details-of-the-cfls-new-cba-salary-cap-increases-ratio-changes-and-guaranteed-contracts/
Quote from: Jesse on May 27, 2022, 02:57:26 AMHave we seen it confirmed that it's 49% of game snaps? And not 49% of the snaps they are sharing with a Canadian player who plays 51% of snaps?Other bonus tidbit: no more Global salary - everyone makes the same minimum.
Quote from: Sir Blue and Gold on May 27, 2022, 01:46:39 AMThere are 23 starting spots on offense and defense (not counting QB which is factored separately). There are 20 Americans on each roster. Right now, only 16 can start. Next year 18 can start. In 2024, 19 can start. They will be backed up on game day by Canadians by necessity, but they will be replaced long term by Americans off of the PR. Practically speaking for us this means that in 2023 Jake Thomas will absolutely a back-up and so will Wolitarsky. In 2024, either the a offensive lineman or the running back spot could also flip. It also means when Canadians get injured it won't be near as bad. Think of all the terrible years we had prior to our recent stretch. The rebuild and competitive balance will be better with 4. Teams can also better build depth behind four Canadian starting positions if they want. Right now they have to take Canadians wherever they can find them and one injury to a Canadian usually cascades into several other changes. Now you can run three offensive lineman, one receiver and fill the rest with better depth and special teams players. Americans can do the rest.
Quote from: Blue In BC on May 27, 2022, 03:11:07 AMOnly if the previously non starting imports meet the criteria and that's where I see a problem. As I suggested if that rule went in place this season only Grant would qualify.
Quote from: Jesse on May 27, 2022, 03:15:11 AMBut it also doesn't come into effect this year.Next year, you may see more of a run on qualifying Americans in FA.
QuoteAccording to sources, CFL teams will have seven Canadian starters and 21 in total on rosters this year. In 2023, that number increases to eight with one being a nationalized Canadian ? an American who has spent either five years in the CFL or at least three with the same team.Clubs will also be able to rotate two nationalized Canadians for up to 49 per cent of snaps. Teams can move to three nationalized Canadians in 2024 but the two franchises that play the most Canadians at the end of the season will receive additional second-round draft picks.And the seven pure Canadian starters per game will remain intact throughout the term of deal, which can be reopened after five years when the CFL's broadcast agreement with TSN expires.https://www.tsn.ca/cfl-cflpa-collective-bargaining-agreement-cba-1.1805062
