From the Canadian Press:
"CFL commissioner Mark Cohon says the CFL and NFL have ceased talks on a new working agreement between the two leagues.
The NFL and CFL first reached a working agreement in 1997 that included the NFL loaning the CFL US$3 million while gaining a window from which to sign CFL players entering the option year of their Canadian contracts.
Cohon and NFL counterpart Goodell have spoken for months about a new working agreement, but to no avail.
"I sat down with our board of governors and looked at what was on the table and we felt there was nothing there to grow and strengthen our league," Cohon said. "The most important thing that I can do is concentrate on strengthening and growing our league.""
The option-year-to-the-NFL scenario that we have seen over the last number of years will not be in play if there is no deal. It will be interesting to see how this evolves.
