GMs call for 'transparency' in free agency
Bidding process raises concern
when players sign for less elsewhere, Popp says
February 25, 2008
"There's got to be transparency," [Jim] Popp said.
"When a guy becomes a free agent on Feb. 16th,
the offers should be submitted to the CFL
so that when he signs a contract,
that contract comes back (registered)
to the league looking the same..."
Sounds good to me.
Another good idea mentioned in this article...
give teams the right to match any offer
their free agents receive on the open market.
That would allow players to reach market value
and teams to be sure what they are bidding against.
