Hello everyone. Longtime reader, new poster.
What's wrong with the CFL! Allow Canadian QB's to count towards the ratio already!
Most will say that there isn't enough Canadian quarterbacks out there to warrant a change in things, and while I agree that there isn't many good QB's out there that are canadians, I also believe that we as canadians are causing the problem ourselves.
As I said, I agree that there isn't many canadian QB's that would make it anywhere right now, but isn't that the point of making the ratio include QB's? It will obviously take a few years of waiting for young QB's to STAY playing QB because they actually have a shot at the CFL in the future. Most young Canadian Highschool, and junior players that are QB's unfortunately have to switch positions because they have absolutely no chance of making it in the CFL. If they want to be a pro they have no choice, they are forced to be anything but a QB.
This is why there's very few good canadian QB's out there right now! It's pretty simple really....Give the kids some hope of being a Pro in the CFL someday and they will want to play the position even as young kids growing up and playing community football. This of course carries over to Highschool, then beyond. Next thing you know (5-10 years from now) you have a much larger portion of canadians that COULD be great QB's available to be drafted.
It doesn't have to be mandated that every team has a Canadian QB on the roster, but at least allow them to count towards the ratio so that they get a look at least!
