    I think teams will have a better perspective by May, but if this season is gone, they may have to resort to the drastic measure of releasing all players from their contracts (or find some other way to "not" pay them). That could prove disastrous and could be an ugly situation come time to re-sign players for 2021, but the teams might not have any alternative financially. I would think the league is already in discussion with the CFLPA regarding a pay structure for a potential partial season.

    I’m not sure it would be an ugly situation come time to re sign...I mean everyone knows what the situation is and it’s not like the individual teams have any say whatsoever of the cancellation of the season. At least I’d hope they did.
    Well, gentlemen, by all means, I think we ought to have an introspective moment of silence for poor old Tin-Tin.

    This story in the Post mentions a comment from a government source indicating that the best case scenario would be current measures being in place until July. ...https://apple.news/AqffDbILiRXKwbv6mOVN33A

    I could not be any more excited about the return of a yellow jersey!

    As long as it’s not a April fool... I hope it’s not

    I could not be any more excited either. I'm not excited at all, and that's my maximum level of excitement about the yellow jersey.

    As a yellow 3rd jersey supporter, I’m now trying to convince myself that they used April Fools to gauge interest in a real yellow 3rd jersey.

    Don’t care if they wear old burlap potato sacks and pink tights ... as long as they win.

    I got a call from the front office on Thursday, so it would have happened after that.

    Reading that it looks like when things return to normal we will be looking for a new director of player personal. Sadly, we seem to be losing someone that has lots of football experience. Really hope things work out well for Turner. Looking more and more like this football season could be toast.

    I predict that not a single sack will be recorded by our opponents this year.
