Out with the old, in with the new

OT Todd Londot has been released today after previously being injured in training camp. In his place the Ticats have signed DL Khari Long.

So much for Obie not making any cuts.

He was on the Fan last week and said that he wasn't going to make any cuts until cut down day.

My feeling is that Londot was TOO injured to continue. Why waste a training camp roster spot on an injured rookie that you don't have to pay? Sounds harsh, but that is pro sports.

As for O'Bie's comment, they don't want to cut HEALTHY players before the end of camp...

But he has to be healthy in order for him to cut him. If he is injured, you can't cut him. I am just saying this. That's all. If the guy is injury prone or no good, get rid of him. Just don't say no one will be cut and then cut someone.

My bad.

They need guys that can participate in camp. There are a few wounded but they all are minor enough that they will be playing again before camp is over. Other then Quinnie of course.. but he is a Vet though and the team has to keep him at least until he is healthy again.

Londot is a rookie. The team has no legal obligation to him if he is hurt. You can be sure the Cats will keep his rights though and maybe call on him again in the future once he is healed if they need him.

Is there anything on DL Khari Long.

I'd say he is a LONGshot to make the Team....

Wasn't Willie Quinnie at the rookie camp?

Yes but he is not a rookie. Adam Trafalis was also at the rookie camp. You can bring vets to rookie camp if they were in 6 or less games the year before or have been out of the league for more than a season like Quinnie who was last in Hamilton back in 06.

Willie Quinne is considered a CFL veteran.

He played here in Hamilton a couple of years ago.

During the season, I believe CFL teams carry medical insurance
that covers injured American players after they are released.

P.S.

O.H.I.P will cover most medical help Londot needs.

and I think the Ticats have insurance
for more serious long term disability

Todd Landot Releaded Kahri Long signed anythoughts

Looks like d line needs work and o line is fine.

There is already a thread about this..

This one was first.. I meant to post that in the other thread. :slight_smile:

Obie doesn't make any cuts....Bellefeuille and the coaching staff does.

8) You just beat me to that answer MP. You are exactly right, Marcel would have the first and final say in any players that are released from the team !!!
   At least we would hope that's the way things are being run.  The proper way  !!!       <!-- s:wink: -->:wink:<!-- s:wink: -->
