So is the Muamba signing a complete end run around salary cap issues for the Argos?

Something sure smells around the double blue!:shushing_face: Haven't we seen this before?

It will only "smell" if they play and finish the season with most of their high-priced FA signings on the roster. Only after the season ends does the salaries paid for the season count against the salary cap.

Wasn't it only a year ago when every other fan base in the CFL was asking the same questions about us and Larry Dean?
Oh wait - it's Chicken Little again... :roll_eyes:

This is true ,
but,
The system’s review process includes detailed field audits of all nine clubs, including following the season. Teams are also required to provide regular updates on compensation levels at the six-game, 12-game and 18-game points of the season.

But Larry's hit was much more realistic for a guy who doesn't want to move and play for a contender. Muamba held out for a few thousand and then moved to a dumpster fire for waaaay less.

That comment's got more spin than a gyroscope. Dean signed for a reported $100-120K LESS than his 2019 salary. About the same thing as Muamba. The parallels are similar enough - I don't care a whit about the reasons you mentioned. Either they were vastly over-paid before, or they were vastly under-paid for their recent seasons.

TOR depth chart at this point
Very strong except at the key position of QB and a rookie unproven HC

Outside of name recognition and Judge, this not an expensive group. And remember that these players were allowed to go free by their former teams.
Eric Rogers was a highly paid guy but no longer due to knee injuries. Muamba signed for less that $100,000. Name recognition means little.
And they have the least expensive QB tandems in the league.

And that is still an overpayment! :rofl:

I count 11 Canadian starters. Surely that won't last, or will it?
