I always read how CFL players are paid peanuts and have to work another job during the CFL season to pay the bills.
But the average salary for CFL players is just over 100,000 per year. To me thats not chump change.
Sure the average is scewed a bit by the guys making 400,000, but the entry level salary is something like 50 grand a year.
Sure its not huge money compared to countries with ten times our population, but it ain't bad for half a years work.
