IMHO this isn’t just cost cutting, it is GM Jim Popp bending these guys over!
If he wanted to release them he should have done it last week, before the trade deadline, like TOR did, those guys found new teams, Carter and to a lesser extent were CFL starters and will not have the ability to play in the League or get paid for the rest of the season.
I’m not sure who the bigger head cases are in the League, the GM’s or some of the players.
The GM’s seem to be getting just as many fines and bad press as the players. :roll:
I wouldn’t blame any High end free agents for thinking twice about signing in MTL after this and also how he dumped Henoc Muamba before his bonus was due before the season even started.
