I'm sure the other GM's in the league
can make their own decisions on
what players they bring in
without consulting Marcel. lol
Have yourself a good chuckle, Double Blue,
Except for the Blue team's braintrust of Rita and Mohns
most G.M.s like to have players who have good character
and would want to know about the move Sam and his agent made.
My take on Sam Young would be
he probably has another job
available to him for more money
then the Ticats were going to pay him.
Can't blame him for that
if he has a family to feed.
If breaking a contract is okay
obviously it doesn't matter to you
if it is done 2 days before a game
That is one of the problems the
CFL faces recruiting the US players
is the low pay scale for rookies
and non established players.
You have to find guys
who really love the game
to take less salary than they
could make outside of football.
Sam received veteran's pay
He was an all star in B.C.
IMO matters like this should have been kept
between the club and the player
instead of just hearing one side of the story.
But I guess you could call the GM a rookie.
When players and agents act in bad faith,
the more public this fact becomes, the better.
