Montreal Alouettes’ quarterback Vernon Adams Jr. knows when the pocket is collapsing and a decision has to be made.
That’s the same way the passer feels about the 2020 CFL season. The 27-year-old called out commissioner Randy Ambrosie on Twitter.
“Can we please get a set date on when a decision will be made? I got kids Mann,” Adams Jr. wrote.
Teammate and veteran offensive lineman Tony Washington supports his signal caller. “Broooo. 100 exactly um helloooo you do realize ya’ll have players with lives who play for you??” Washington wrote in response.
Washington was one of many players who echoed the sentiments of Adams Jr.
Als’ running back James Wilder Jr.: “PLEASE!!! I have Children as welI, I have college coaching jobs I’ve turned down because of this!!! I have a child on the way due in august!!! WE NEED TO KNOW SOMETHING!!!! Holding a decision till September is not an option!!!!”
Saskatchewan Roughriders’ defensive lineman Chad Geter: “I don’t have kids but this is getting ridiculous lol I wake up everyday looking for answers and get nothing. It’s getting to the point now where we are about to start missing game checks and we still don’t have any answers.”
Hamilton Tiger-Cats’ receiver and reigning CFL Most Outstanding Player Brandon Banks: “Like forreal! Don’t kno which direction to go. Either we playing or not.”
The players appear united with Adams Jr., but Ambrosie does not have a do-or-die decision day for a potential CFL season in 2020 amid the COVID-19 pandemic.
“We’re not at a point yet,” Ambrosie told TSN’s Rod Smith, “where we’ve got a date in mind that we’ve gotta call this.”
