I agree as well. I want to see the best players possible but would not like to eliminate the import rule or reduce the amount. The import rule makes the game a little more unique and completely Canadian. I would be in favour of the league taking a look at the QB issue and perhaps allowing teams to keep and develop a Canadian QB without it affecting the ratio limit. They would need to designate that player though and once designated he would not be able to switch positions until the following season. That way he could not decide to become a fullback in the middle of the year after being protected all season.
This way teams could not monkey around with the spot. He would be protected from other teams and not affect the 40 man even if activated because he would have to be designated as a QB only. The QB coming off the roster could be put on whichever list they wanted. Injured reserve, suspended or practice roster. If placed on the practice roster he could be protected for a period of time, say 3 weeks, without the risk of being claimed by another team.
If, after 3 weeks he is not moved off the practice roster he would become available to the rest of the league to be claimed. The Canadian QB could sit there all year and not be touched. This would only apply to the designated Canadian QB. Any import QB placed on the practice roster after the final 40 is named and not being switched with a Canadian QB would become fair game immediately for the rest of the league.
This would allow teams to work the Canadian QB into the system and get on the sidelines at least, if not into games and be developed at the speed that individual teams wished. Something like that might work. What do you folks think?
