Hadn't been on this board for awhile, and thus missed the survey notice.
Would have wanted to mention the stupidity of the neg-list secrecy.
Other teams know who is on the neg-lists; potential CFL players know, or find out either upon request or when they contact another team; so why shouldn't the fans, who directly through bums in seats or indirectly through eyes on TVs, pay the bills know?
Neg-list names get leaked by teams when it is convenient for them, either to get a story in the local paper or to play games with another team (i.e., leaking their names), but many years past several names of NCAA, bowl-bound players were leaked every year. It sparked interest in the bowls (not a CFL concern) but also off-season interest in the CFL. What better way to get post-Grey Cup attention than exploiting the NCAA?
The only reason to keep them secret is if they are sooooo useless as to beg ridicule (e.g., Teabow being on a list for SEVEN seasons after leaving university), and/or expose teams as lazy for listing mostly well known names that most fans could have picked.
Secrecy makes as much sense as would not releasing the pre-CFL-draft rankings; transparency to provoker discussion is, as Martha Stewart would say, a good thing
