    If I was Ottawa I’d use my last pick on him

    Was he drafted?

  3. It’s about time, if the CFL is going to survive, that the CFL finally gets rid of the Canadian ratio that is killing the CFL. So the CFL like every other professional league, like the NFL, NFL, NBA, MLB, and even the MLS, allows the best and most talented available players to start and play for entire game in their professional sports leagues. The Canadian players are making a fool and mockery out of the CFL and the so called Canadian draft that they don’t even support. When there are not near enought quality Canadian players out there to begin with to fill the unrealistic huge Can ratio for nine teams, who actually want to play in the CFL and not the NFL. Make the best Canadian players have to actually make a CFL team and let the Coaches decide who starts and plays in the CFL. Not the Canadian players and their controlling, basically Canadian players union and their over rated and grossly overpaid Canadian O-Linemen committee, and their handcuffing Canadian starter and huge Canadian roster ratios. If the CFL continues to allow this foolishness to go on, the CFL will continue to die! Unless the CFL finally starts to allow the best available players to start and play in the CFL, so CFL 3 down professional football can finally be played at its highest level with the best available players. And not just automatically hand out guaranteed starting and roster spots to Canadian players who have no business being on a CFL field, and are obviously only there because of their passport and their guaranteed Canadian starter and roster ratios.
