Quote from: Pete on March 17, 2023, 03:26:23 PMinteresting article by john Hodge on Prukops decision to go to the usfl. Sounds like he's already contemplating his return to the cfl. , he may be looking to showcase his ability as a starter there, and perhaps if a starting cfl qb gets hurt early it may create an opportunity, otherwise he may look to return to the bombers if they have a spot for himhttps://3downnation.com/2023/03/17/qb-dakota-prukop-explains-why-he-chose-to-sign-with-usfl-foresees-likely-cfl-return/

Quote from: GCn19 on March 17, 2023, 04:11:45 PMI suspected that this was more of an opportunity to double dip and get some extra pay. I absolutely don't blame him at all. I would happily have him back as our SY QB and can understand that position on a depth chart doesn't pay very well, so if he goes USFL makes a few dollars and then comes back here a couple weeks late I, for one, am OK with that. I'm surprised that more of our 3rd stringers in this league aren't taking the same avenue.
Quote from: Throw Long Bannatyne on March 17, 2023, 04:53:51 PMGreat interview by Hodge, I can't recall Bomber staff ever interviewing him in the entire year he was here, they keep busy asking the same 6 guys, the same 6 questions.

Quote from: VictorRomano on March 21, 2023, 04:34:44 PMThe article says the USFL pays $60k (US) for a 10-game season, where the CFL minimum is $51k (US) for a much longer season. We all know Prukop is not making the league minimum, but this is essentially a chance for him to collect 2 salaries as the USFL will be done (the USFL season ends July 2nd) when the CFL is starting Week 1 on June 8th. Prukop could potentially lose the first 3 or 4 weeks of the CFL season, but he won't have had the preseason - which could work in his favor in a return to Winnipeg, as he would not have to learn a whole new system from scratch. It could also work against him if he signs womewhere else and hasn't had a preseason to work out the system/playbook. I guess the deciding factor is that he could earn a full salary (plus any playoff bonuses) in the USFL and then come back north and collect 85% of a CFL salary, too.
