Yes but in those days Canadian talent wasn't picked over by NFL teams like it is today. More Canadian kids getting drafted by NFL teams means less players for the CFL. There really isn't a enough quality national players in the CFL right now as most of them have to be hidden on rosters as 3WR backup RB, Safety, etc and it shows as the product has been getting progressively worse. Any national linemen that are any good have to be way overpaid because of their passport. The league is slowly dying and it's important the the product improve and lowering the ratio should help.
