Teams go into free agency basically known which big free agents are leaving and which top ones they have attracted. Then the dominoes fall pretty quickly as teams move to various positional Plan B's. A few hard cases hold out to see if they can get their number, but by then the market has re-set and it's time for a chat with Mr. Reality. I don't blame veterans who set a number and won't play for less, I think everyone has their own sense of what makes it worthwhile. Nothing wrong with walking away when you feel the time is right.

Around the same time CGY and HAM started going for 2 a whack ton. The insiders may have talked about it as well, and the booth guys.It was kind of the buzz for a couple of weeks that year.If "CFL wide" (i.e. all averages) show going for 2 can make sense, then imagine how those numbers calc out when your kicker misses PATs like I miss the bullseye at darts. Add in the fact that your O is one of the best in the CFL (especially in red zone) and... should be a no-brainer for our team!!And CGY was doing it with rarely-misses-PAT Parades!!
