How does the system work for getting players from the other 8 teams to form the foundation of Ottawa's team in its first year?
In the NFL, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers sucked big-time for awhile. Tampa Bay didn't get squat.
In the USFL, the Houston Gamblers got a lot of good players from the existing teams that were required to release their players. Houston made the USFL playoffs and challenged for the league championship.
Will Ottawa suck for years or will actual bona fide starters from each of the 8 existing teams be required to be released to play for Ottawa?
