The league should go back to the old National rules. It’s a joke that players like Singleton and Wolitarsky should be considered Nationals having been born in the U.S. and played their entire careers there. Neither of them had set foot in Canada before being ruled Nationals by a glitch in the rules.
With only 7 Nationals being starters, they should reserve those roster spots for players who were born in Canada or received the majority of their football training here, not with non-imports like B. Cahoon who thought it was a big joke he was considered a “Canadian”.
I don’t see how any fan would believe the league should reduce the National quota? The CFL is the only Canadian league left in existence, but even the majority of CFL players are American. Having 3 or 4 National players on offence and defence does not ruin the league or drop its professionalism by a appreciable level.
What incentive would there be for USport college football players to continue playing the game if there was little chance of be drafted and turning pro? Many premier athletes would probably switch to hockey or baseball.
With all American CFL rosters and college football diminished or disbanded, how long before there’d be pressure to adopt more American rules, which all the players and most coaches are more familiar with…or would they still have to learn the weird rules of a game Canadians “used” to play?
