Result would be the introduction of the “Global Player” designation.
“Our plan in the short term is to welcome some of the very best players from Mexico into our great league under a new category ‘global player,’? (Randy) Ambrosie said. “We’ve been talking to our governors, our teams, our players about the opportunities that this would create to expand the game of football, to bring to Canadian football and players from around the world to excite them and thrill them.?
Under the current rules, the 44-man game day rosters are made up of 21 nationals (or Canadian) players, 20 internationals (usually Americans) and three quarterbacks. Ambrosiedidn’t say how a new “global player? designation would be incorporated into current rosters – or whether the issue would require a change to the collective bargaining agreement with the players’ association.
