I am a huge football fan, and I love the CFL. I was a Renegades season ticket holder, and can't wait for 2014. (These people who chirp about the CFL, and worship the NFL game, tick me off. It's like hockey - plenty of room for all kinds of different leagues and styles, guys.)

What killed the Renegades last time was lousy Canadian talent. We always said that the Renegades import talent was comparable to the other clubs. Don't forget the Renegades had guys like Kerry Joseph, Josh Ranek, Kyries Hebert, etc. What the team lacked was solid and star Canadian players. Those last few Canadians on the Renegades rosters were cover-your-eyes awful.

Therefore, the biggest focus in the draft has to be getting Canadian help, offensive linemen particularly. A good scouting staff can find you imports to plug and play at receiver, linebacker, etc. Harder to find is a) Canadians, and b) a quarterback.
