Grover it said online they don’t like us taking picks

Fans are not permitted to take photos, videos or notes during on-field activities.

How did you do this ?

Thanks for the pics grov,

Now I’m confused…isn’t the league without a CBA? Aren’t the players supposed to be locked out or something like that? I’m really out of touch with the cfl happenings the past few months I’ve been cruising around other continents etc…thanks for any insights!

The players must honour their contracts and show up for Camp until a strike vote is taken.
Alberta law requires a strike vote could not be taken until the old CBA expires so a vote couldn't happen until today.
It will be probably Tues. or Wed. until all votes are in.
Then the players could take legal job action if necessary.
Hopefully negotiations will re-start soon.

Milton's observations on day 2 of TC,

[b]* The Cats are fast. Flat out, no modifiers.

*The defence is so far ahead of last year at this point that it's useless to even try to compare. Huge defensive plays made several times by both Rico Murray and Pawel Kruba at linebacker. Some guys who made starts last year will not make this team, is our guess.

*The Canadian depth of this team is ridiculously good, and we'll address that a bit in the main column today (which is about Ted Laurent).[/b]

[b]*Andy Fantuz has never held for a left-footed kicker. Justin Medlock returns to the team after a two-year NFL absence and, apparently, is still kicking with his left foot.

Fantuz said it's an adjustment because Medlock is not only left-footed, he does not use a kicking tee---Medlock says that's actually easier for a holder once he gets used to it---and because unlike other kickers Medlock does not like the ball held down from the top with one or two fingers or the whole hand, but likes the tip of the ball pinched between forefinger and thumb to make it easier to rotate, if necessary.

Medlock says it'll take 200 practice snaps to get it right but will he have that with Fantuz, who's a first-stringer on offence?

No, it says here. That's one reason why Jason Boltus, third-string quarterback, was his holder here before. Receivers Luke Tasker and Corey Koch both with reliable, and big, hands like Fantuz are also asking for practice time as holder.[/b]

[b]* And how is Collaros making out in his adaptation to the Austin Way, which requires an awful lot of conceptual knowledge and reaction to what's playing out in front of him?

"He's improving a lot," Austin said. " It doesn't matter what new system you go into, there's new terminology. It's like Greek af first. First you have to get comfortable with the terminology then you have to understand WHY we're doing what we're doing, and not just what. You can't have a robotic memory, coming out on this football field, you have to learn conceptually because of our adjustments. That takes time to sink in, but Zach's doing a great job right now in his understanding and progression of learning."[/b]

I've noticed there is no mention of the annual/traditional "Black & Gold" game/practice so I'm guessing it's a no go this year. I've always enjoyed going in the past.

Were any of the coaches wearing funny hats ?

I remember a coach several years ago who used to wear "funny hats" at practice. I forgot his name, but I think he was a defensive coach or something. I just remember being told he was going to come back to "haunt" us, somewhere, somehow.

Yup, things were a lot better and a lot more fun in those days.

Are these all official times that they start there session at? I went to the one on Wednesday at 1:00pm and everyone was walking away from the practice field at that time is it that they end at that time? Also does anyone know if the home pre season game at Mac is open for the public? I saw something on the ticats web site where it said only season ticket holders are allowed to buy the tickets for the pre season?

According to ticketmaster.ca -------The tickets for the Mac. game go on sale to-morrow at 10am.
