Don't think anything's happening today for us. That's okay

With the tampering period, there's no free agent frenzy anymore.  Is that a good or bad thing?  For us, bad, I think.  Our front office seemed to dine out on FA day, making splashes and value signings. 

I think, with the $SMS and the success of our scouting/coaching, FA season is always going to be a heartbreak for us. 

I still want to see a "continuity clause" added into the CBA, where there is a small non-$SMS pool of funds each team is allowed to spend to retain players.  For players coming off ELC's or having 3 years service with a team, the team should be able to sweeten their deals with a little extra non-$SMS money.

And guys finishing ELC's should have an RFA type ability to match, which is easy now with the tampering period.  Tampering period contracts should be like NHL "offer sheets", where the team can choose to match, or if they choose not to, depending on the contract size and National/American/Global status, a draft pick comes back.

Unabashed positron.  Blue koolaid in my fridge.  I wear my blue sunglasses at night.  Homer, d'oh.

With Walker not signing in Calgary, I hope he is signing here.

The report suggested he's not signing with any CFL team right now. Made it seem like something off the field happened that is keeping him from playing football.

Regardless, I don't think he's in our budget. We've all seen us let our DTs walk multiple times.
