in CANADIAN college, mate and I think with (on average) 4 years more in college, your average CIAU player is gonna have more experience with the Canadian game, than an NCAA player who has never played a down Canadian style (that goes for Canadians too)
I see your point about a 5+ year vet, but the import rule on those guys is more to insure that players of Canadian born AND uni experience play, and Canadians would rather see other Canadian athletes brend in the Canadian system play than an NFL or NCAA Super Star, although having a few that make the cut play is nice as well.
the only real issue I see with the import rule is the segregation of the QBs, if that's is a rule in fact, and not just the way it is, which IMO *****, but that's just my opinion.
Nice idea though, but there is nothing wrong with the import rule.
The roster size for a CFL team is 40 players. 3 of the 40 are Quarterbacks and can be either imports or non-imports no restrictions. Of the remaining 37 players, no more than 18 may be imports. Therefore the maximum amount of imports allowed per team is 21. These numbers reflect the import player as it reads in the 2002 CBA.
