So from your 2 quotes I take that your contradicting yourself. Which is it?

As for the Union... Do the players really want this? They will now have to be taxed on their income and Revenue Canada maybe looking at some sort of back payment for the "under the table" stipends these kids are getting as well.

Will an AP player that gets called up have to pay union dues?
