“There's structure in (the CFL),? he said, “but compared to the NFL, boy do we have a lot of fun up North. It's a good league.?

nice Dave!

Does he roll over and fetch?

The NFL is all about the money.

It is not called the No Fun League for nothing, ro1313.

The 4 1/2 hour work days the CFL players have
would seem like a part-time job to NFL players.

ok and?

I thought it was a good article…not sure what ro is leaning at…

I was refering to the way the topic titled!
No offence Earl.
When I read the title DD speaks.....
It made me think of Speak rover Speak!
Roll over.....Fetch

Me too.

Sounds like ro has inherited my dry sense of humour.

Too much working in the sunshine, it went over my head!

I like DD and I think he is a great player and ambassador of the league.
I think he will make a good coach hopefully in the CFL when he retires.

Hopefully, he'll be coaching Buck Pierce in 2008! :wink: :wink:

The CBA needs to be changed, considering what players make now, 6 Hour work days should be enforcable. or atleast 6 hours for non-vets(3+ years = Vet)

Since this includes Video time, it seems fair.
3-4 hours of practice a day, if a player wants.

The 4.5 hour days doesnt include workout and meals as it does in the NFL

Yeah, actually I was about to start a topic about the difference in practice time in the CFL and NFL ... how the CFL is only half a day, the NFL is full day, year round ... and then I found this tidbit from Jon Ryan:

"The No. 1 difference that's blaringly obvious is the paycheque!" laughed Ryan. "As far as the time commitment, a lot of guys say you work a full day in the NFL but a half-day in the CFL but if you're fully committed in the CFL, you're still putting in a full day. Here in Green Bay we're putting in eight, nine, 10-hour days but that includes your breakfast, lunch and a workout. But in Canada it's a four and a half-hour day but you still have to eat your meals and get in the weight room. If guys aren't committed to that in the CFL, they're not going to be there very long."

Just reiterating what jman said ...

Anyway, I was happy to hear that, because playing in the CFL shouldn't require less work than playing in the NFL.

No offence Earl.

None taken ro. I just didn't know what to call the thread and for lack of having to use my brain cells which don't always work very well, I settled on this very lame one. :wink:
