Maybe its time the CFL put in a central scouting system with Mark Cohon as the Head Scout. He apparently knows football talent better than Buono and Rita as he is going to be the self appointed Judge of any trade between the Argos and the Lions. :lol: Some of the trades that go on in the CFL are often a mismatch talent wise, but the real reason is generally because of the SMS or the ratio.
Take the latest trade between Montreal and Winnipeg, Walls for a young Canadian backup. Not a fair trade talent wise, but Montreal gives up a Canadian kid they didn't need and Winnipeg dumps a salary. Now if the Argos and BC make this trade Mark Cohon is going to have to block it, because in his words it wouldn't be fair market value.
Doesn't sound like it will be a level playing field to me.
So Mark I still like you and all that, but don't you think the fans might just care more about seeing players get paid the bonuses they are owed by the contracts the clubs have signed them to. To me that would be a more way of being "fair" in the public eye instead of worrying about "fair" market value between the Argos and the BC Lions.
The only good thing I can see come out of this is that Adam Rita won't be able to trade away his 1st round pick to BC now for some washed up import. Mark's fair market value law will kick in.
