protection of the QB is paramount, but lets protect all players, not just the #1 QBs , because the way that I interpret your statement " I'm good with anything that protects the #1 QB's. If this works, I'm all for it " indicates to me that you want the # 1 QB to be untouchable while the rest of the team including backup QBs are fair game for whatever kind of hit that you can put on them.
don' get me wrong I like a good hard hitting game.
but we all must remember that football is not tiddlywinks, its a physical sport and injuries do happen, do you want to see any player get hurt ? NO
in my opinion the lack of practice time is hurting the development of players.
here is what I found regarding CFL practice rules as per the CBA
?How many days per week do players/teams practice? How many hours per day do players practice? How many hours per day do players spend in meetings?
A team's practice schedule in weeks where their games are seven days apart may look like the following (understanding that in 2015 about 16% of games were played on Sundays):
•Sunday - play game, may return travel after game
•Monday - travel day, day off
•Tuesday - meetings, film review
•Wednesday - practice, meetings
•Thursday - practice, meetings
•Friday - practice, meetings, may travel late in day
•Saturday - travel day, pre-game walk through
•Sunday - play game
See also Paul LaPolice's guide to a road team's week.
Section 6.02 of the CBA stipulates the following for regular season practices:
•Practice times and meetings must not exceed 4.5 hours in duration in a single day.
•When there are six or more days between games, players are required to have one day off between games without practices or meetings
•When there are five or less days between games, all practices that week shall not be in full gear but in sweats, shoulder pads, and helmets only.
In a seven day span, modern CFL teams dedicate one day to playing the game, two days off from practice usually, three days of practice, one day of walk through before playing their next game. Shortened weeks obviously cut into the practice days when games are less than seven days apart, with one day of practice and a walk-through being possible. Normally one of those games would be a road contest and necessitate travel, however it is possible for teams to play back-to-back games on the road or at home. This is a general guideline and team schedules can change from week-to-week within the confines of the CBA.
The CBA provides for a 4.5 hour working day for CFL players. Practices would generally be 1.5-2 hours long, leaving an additional 2.5 hours for meetings
