They do need to increase scoring, but these rule changes for the most part only seem to "fake" more offense.

And there goes Tyson Philpot to Montreal ending the dream of both Philpot brothers landing in Calgary. Hey, Huff nabbed one of them which is great.

He won't be a QB under Chris Jones.

Jones will convert the excellent "athlete" to corner or receiver.

Marc-David Bien-Aimé played one football game for Fresno State and hasn't dressed for a contest in three calendar years. The Elks picked him No. 21 overall.

Chris Jones is a riverboat gambler.

Former Dinos defensive lineman J Min Pelley went today to the Elks in the CFL supplemental draft. The Elks lose their 2023 second-round choice for a player who is projected to have, at worst, been a top-three draft choice in the regular draft.

Some of the issues left between CFLPA and CFL in bargaining sessions:


https://twitter.com/user/status/1522396798270148609


"A ten-year agreement with zero increases in the cap. A revenue sharing program which will not likely show any significant growth until the TSN contract is renewed in five years."


Again, this is from the memo: "Although earlier discussions around guaranteed contracts were held, the CFL has now removed the PA's proposal to allow players to negotiate guaranteed contracts.


"The CFL demands our members go back to padded practices, even with a decrease of 35% of on-field injuries, yet refuses to support our proposal for coverage for those same on field injuries.


"Full elimination of the Canadian ratio and Veteran American Ratio, as well as a reduction of Canadians on the roster. The league wants full discretion on practice time that varies during the week (increasing and decreasing hours)."

Full elimination of the ratio is surprising. I've long been a proponent that the ratio needed to be reduced because the best Canadians are getting picked up by NFL teams and what's left just isn't good enough and it hurts the overall product. The rest of this looks pretty heavy handed by ownership.

Apparently JT Barrett has retired, so Chris Jones has signed another Ohio State QB (and NFL bust) instead. The guy has only played in five games since 2016, and that was in the XFL in 2020.

Kamar Jorden has some replies to the above tweet. He makes a lot of sense as well.
