Yeah I know..but Dressler and Demski played the slot role at same time..hence allowing Rose to fill the Dressler role

I was thinking that Charles Nelson and Wolotarsky might be the slots.

I hope Nelson either makes it big with the club or is cut early, so I can forget about him completely or have a better frame of reference for him, because right now I hear that name and all I can think is:

It’s a tough decision...get a Bomber fix

BUT

have to listen to those commercials...

Hmmmm, 2 hour CJOB show means about 5 minutes per guest.  Not sure it's going to be worth it.  Although we will have dozens and dozens of opportunities to see if mudruckers has a new commercial for this year.

TIDBITS - CJOB Special. (Shorthand version)

Walters

Moving on from Dressler

Flanders - want more return ability - will see.

Matthews - he’s focused on NFL, but ‘could’ end up here.

 

O’Shea - regrets losing ‘good’ people, football and otherwise.

Jefferson will fit right in. Intrigued to see him play. 

Ultra competitive West. 

Negotiations- players will work hard to get what they want. Better partnership and communication now.

Couture ready? Yes. Gray will compete. No doubt OL can be as good. TC will determine who’s who and where they play.

Streveler- expand his roll..still Matt’s team. 

Augustine - will have to work on ST & protection. Will be competition 

2 spots open on Rec. 

Petermann & Simonize - both improved.

Knox to Wilson. Wilson was slated for MLB.

Mexican player in camp? Looking at it.

Globalization- to improve revenue streams. Likes the big thinking.

Nichols knee injury? Into good training. No knee concerns. Wants to be more consistent. 

Harris - doesn’t know where the money’s coming from when asked of teams signing Free Agents.

Brown & Tait - negotiations? Brown brings up a fund for injuries.

Tait - guranteed contracts? No go. Pie is too small. 

Sask. - Tait says it all depends on Collaros...otherwise - yeesh

Brown says they’re going to be terrible and hopes they’re terrible.

 Very smart football player but age and injuries have caught up to him big time and we need a consistent receiving core.

It's too bad that Dress couldn't be added to our coaching ranks in some capacity....With the new regs. and limits on coaching staff that would be out the window....Bad timing...I guess the yahoos over there in greenland will now be chomping at the bit, to have him retire a green guy and add him to their hall of shame

I could be very wrong when I say this and I know it's the CANADIAN football league but lowering the ratio isn't a bad thing at all. I'd much prefer to see great competition in camp,have the best product on the field if it means an international takes a nationals spot.

Would not be shocked with the new CBA will come with a reduction in the ratio to six or five Canadian starters.

I'd be shocked, but I'd like to see it.

that will be a disadvantage to us, if that happens. we have a poor US scouting compared to other teams.

I'd argue the only American players we can't seem to find with the same success as other teams is at receiver. We do a pretty good job digging up DB's (Walker, Alexander), LB's (Santos-Knox), even RB's (Marshall, Flanders) since Walters took over.

Couture ready? - I think a lot of people down play the amount of in game time he saw last year. He played, a lot, and played well. The bigger question for me is who wins, Gray or Foketi?

Couture has dressed for 54 games...sure first year he didn't see field much, but the last 2 years has has seen significant reps so he is more than ready...his only real kock was size when he first entered league, but has added about 20lbs if not more since....so size is no longer an issue

Keep the ratio where it is.  It dropped from 10 starters to 7 and then down to 6.  It should NEVER drop any lower unless the league expanded to 12 or more teams.  It is the CANADIAN Football League and it needs to have as many Canadian roster spots as possible. 

Most domestic leagues around the world have rules for the number of starter spots and roster spots for its players.  It help promotes the sport within the country - both from a developmental and commercial perspective.  

It is short-sighted and lazy to lower the ratio and "let the best men play" as it will discourage participation and development of football players at the lower levels.  This will in turn lead to fewer quality players being available to make the jump to the pros...in turn, this leads to demands for a lower ratio and the cycle continues...This  doesn't even factor in reduced interest from the Canadian audience with fewer Canadian players in the league.  Reduced TV and live attendance are likely to follow.
