Just to keep the record straight! Calgary and John Hugnagel have NEVER exceeded the Cap in either the players or Management CFL imposed Cap.
The Ticats in 2015 exceeded the Cap by $8,939. But the worst offender is the Sask Riders who have exceeded the Cap at least 3 times since it was imposed. The Riders were fined $1 for every $1 over the cap. For example they were fined $87,147 in 2009 . The worst thing about the riders is that the Fans just laughed saying" They would just sell a few more jerseys to make up for the fine" ! IMO I believe that any team over the Cap pay a more significant amount. The present amount is no deterent! And if it is found out that the Team won the Grey Cup by exceeding the cap, that the Cup be taken back and awarded to the losing opponent. In 2007 Sask & Montreal both were over the Cap, and Sask won the cup that year against the Bombers. In 2013 the Riders again exceeded the cap and won the Grey cup against the Ticats
