9 CFLers working out with two NFL teams today

.....Leos, and to some extent the Esks., getting cleaned out and all the CFL can do is watch...I've got no problem with a player making bigger money and getting a good deal, but where's the consideration for the league....Certainly looks like all we are now is a place for players to showcase their skills till they bugger off...Doesn't bode well for the future...And if that's all we are now is farm teams for the nfl maybe that should be reflected in ticket prices..A fact finding mission should be set up to find out just who we really are and find our lost identity.. :thdn:

More Canadians on each team's roster might slow the flow.

Another one today - Alex Bazzie signs with the Colts

as far as back loading a players contract, without a guarantee this is a high risk contract that as a player I would not accept.
maybe if you remove the tryout window for NFL opportunities and guarantee player contracts this may help in player retention ?

Adam Bighill took advantage of the tryout window.
John Chick released days before his performance bonus was to be paid.

As a player what is more important in your contract,
NFL tryout window ?
Guaranteed contract ?
