Hamilton beat out the Riders on a technicality to put freshman University of Alabama quarterback Tua Tagovailoa on the Ticats negotiation list, according to TSN’s Scott Mitchell.

The Hawaii native came off the bench in the second half of Monday night’s College Football Championship game to lead the Crimson Tide to a 26-23 overtime win over the University of Georgia. Tagovailoa completed 14-of-24 passes for 166 yards, three touchdowns and one interception, including the game-winning 41-yard touchdown strike in OT. Current Ticats head coach June Jones coached Tagovailoa during his senior year in high school when he threw for 3,932 yards and 43 touchdowns, leading St. Louis to the 2016 District 1 State Championship. He chose Alabama over LSU, Oregon, UCLA and USC. Tagovailoa attended the same high school as Hamilton’s starting quarterback Jeremiah Masoli.So with his Ticats connections, it’s appropriate that Tagovailoa is Hamilton property.

The ability to neg list guys who are still in college seems silly. The whole system is really crazy.

There should be something like neg list "draft", held every spring after the Canadian draft. Teams follow waiver order, and draft American players who are out college. Draft continues until all teams neg lists are full, or all teams have passed on their pick. After that, no adding to your neg list during the season. You can still trade/release from the list, but can only add to it during the draft. Any players that aren't on a neg list during the season are free agents and can sign with any team.

All neg lists would be open to the public. I'd suggest dropping the number way down from 45 too, so teams aren't just stashing a random assortment of players with almost no chance of ending up here. Maybe 15-20 guys, who become free agents if they don't sign within 3 years of being added to a list.

I'm just spitballing here, but does anyone really like the current system? Seems like there's definite room for improvement.

He better have a pristine personal life , not have an ego (which we alone get to define) or an agent who thinks his clients career and salary is important or we dont want him here.

We want players who are quiet with low self esteem (just like us) with poor quality agents and will sign any contract put jn front of them. So we can feel good about ourselves at the same time.

The title of this thread barely looks like English with all the abbreviations and Hawaiian name. ;D

Nobody gave 2 shakes about the neg list until now!
Whats the big deal? Leave it as it is

;D ;D ;D

Neither of your statements are accurate. We would just prefer not to have an all out douche on the team. 8)

Right. Because the team or league has never employed any and we have never ever cheered for them.

Dork you are are 100% correct.

Reluctantly because the team is always bigger than the douche.

That Georgia qb is not too shabby. Is he on anyones list.

I'm pretty sure there is, although I'd love to have the whole process explained beginning to end. Just googled it and got this, must be what I was remembering - Ten players change teams in CFL's double secret neg list draft - 3DownNation

I don't see why they shouldn't reward teams with the foresight to add neg list players early on, as they are taking a risk on that player. Anyone good is going to end up on someone's neg list anyway - why wait?

The only thing that seems unfair about the system is a team's ability to keep a player neg-listed indefinitely, but in practice it just doesn't happen - they're either dropped or their rights are traded.

I couldn't care less if my football team had to be brought in from Rikers Island every week.

Just win baby!


Heaven forbid that this league not adopt the NFL (National Felon League) employment philosophy.

I was just about to report it as spam. :o

I hear an echo here. Get out your flame retardent underwear and crash helmet. When I made this same, perfectly reasonable comment a couple of day ago I was personally attacked and roundly criticized.

The TiCats want a Doug Flutie. Good luck with that. As long as the football people are making personnel decisions and not the President, that makes sense. But I'm not sure that's the case.

A couple of guys corrected your factual misstatement about “perpetuity? and you took that as a personal attack?

A slightly thicker skin is helpful for anyone who participates on web forums.

You are kidding? Who do you think is making the decisions? Mitchell in a vacuum? Why criticize when you don’t know how the football operations works?

Come on Earl? nice!
