If the Oil beef up their budget, those owners won't seriously even consider our long range future.

For clarification... This CBA fight will be with the players AND with some of the "could-care-less" US based owners. If BIG teams get what they want, without worrying about us up here, we're done. I just don't want to hear in two years the same words the Eskimos just uttered this past week... "inevitable". THIS is the wake up year not next year... our actions will speak volumes.
Agreed. It's the "could-care-less" US based owners" that scare the **** out of me.
imho - We have to hold the line, at all costs.
