read some quotes from players who want to use their "leverage" and strike.
they said the only way to win is to show owners the pain of not being able to sell tickets and concessions.

I have a feeling it will hurt the players a heck of a lot more not to get paid.

A CFL player missing a few cheques? how are they going to pay the bills? the only people going to be hurt are the high school kids who have to compete with these players for jobs at the mall.
