Following is the opinion of Arizona Rattler’s HC/GM Kevin Guy:
“Markus (Smith) was making plays, but he wanted to go to a tryout in Canada,” Guy said. "That’s something we need to address as a league. We have to protect our league. Canada is not a higher league. They’re competition. It’s the NFL and we’re fighting over who they cut. We’ve got our own league and our rules.
“Owners have to stand up and decide to protect our league, what we’re playing for. It is an issue. When you have an organization like us, and we’re going to recruit 365 days a year, and put the best product on the field. … Some of those guys in Canada are just lazy. They want to look at our roster and try to cherry pick. At the end of the day, that’s lazy recruiting on their part. They need to do a better job of recruiting in the offseason.”
“If you get offered a contract, you can leave,” Guy said. “But to go do tryouts, we’re not running a charity. At the end of the day, we want guys who are here and committed.”[url=http://www.azcentral.com/story/sports/arena/rattlers/2016/04/13/rattlers-kevin-guy-upset-cfl-trying-take-players/82996700/]http://www.azcentral.com/story/sports/a ... /82996700/[/url]
