I'm with replacement, these guys have zero leverage.

There are 240 nfl v payers drafted every year. Maybe the first three round make the nfl... That's a solid 900 (150 times 6 years or so) worth of random replacement players in their prime who could step in and perform a chl players job quite easily and make at least double their annual income in four months...

There are only 180 jobs to be had in the cfl. In what world would they have any leverage? These aren't A level, B level, and in most cases even C level players (with some exceptions, maybe 10-15 guys). These are D or E level guys. This is like ECHL hockey players striking. They should be happy they have a job.

It's made even more of a joke by the fact that the revenue sharing these players want they already had bit pissed away because the league had a down year four years ago and they wouldn't get to have a raise.

I'm sorry, but these players are in for a rude awakening.
