:thup: :thup: :thup: :thup: :thup: :thup: :D :D :D :D :D :D

About time.

He tried for years with red tape and delays.

While " others " seem to be able to slide in without question . :roll: :roll:

So if he comes out of retirement he can come back as a national :lol:

Finally, the league gets its next great Quarterback :lol:

WOW, I never thought of that.

Come out of retirement, win another Grey Cup and become the first Canadian QB since Russ Jackson, to win.

At the same time, become the first QB to win a Grey Cup as both a Canadian and an American.

Oh, if this could have just happened a year ago. :smiley: :smiley:

Yay! Bra man is a canuck :thup:

OH HELL NO - HE DID NOT

Yea the red tape delay was due to the fact that, the CFL was considered part time work and it didn’t qualify him for Canadian residency.

Whoopee!!!! "hours of parades and whoopee"

CORRECTION - Burris did NOT get Canadian Citizenship he finally got residency!! Citizenship takes 5 years from becoming a resident

OK, this reply looks bad. I was not referring to Hank as Canadian.

HELL NO was to the photo.

Turns out it made no matter anyway.

He is only a :roll: resident.

No he can't

  1. HOW DOES THE NATIONAL (FORMERLY NON-IMPORT) PLAYER RULE WORK?

The following Players shall be classified as National Players (formerly non-import):
(a) Canadian citizens at the time of signing of the Player’s first contract;
(b) A Player classified as a non-import prior to May 31st, 2014; OR
(c) A Player who was physically resident in Canada for an aggregate period of five (5) years prior to attaining the age of eighteen (18) years.

A Player is classified as an International Player (formerly import) if the Player is one other than one referred to in the definition of a National Player (formerly non-import).

Thanks, but I wasn't being serious. Note the laughing face at the end of my original message

I didn't think you were, but just in case
