    Ian Busby wrote a good piece on the Dinos. I hope all Stampeder season ticket holders take advantage of their Dino tickets and pack McMahon for those games!!! Load up the place for the largest CIS crowds of the season.

    Why CFL teams draft CIS kids not in their senior year is beyond me. They do the same for Canadian NCAA players. Find out when they graduate & draft accordingly.

    These guys were in their senior year. CIS rules give you a 5th season letting any CIS player return for another year.

    What happened this year in the draft isn't on the CFL it's a CIS issue. An amateur sports organization that allows pros to play is a sham.

    The CFL could easily put a stop to this by drafting players their graduating year. The quote by Fabien was he wanted to finish school. I don't necessarily buy that explanation but it is what it is.

    How do you determine the graduating year? Their 4th year in school? That's how the draft rule is currently set up.

    These players are taking off their 4th year second semester to train for the E-Camp knowing that they can return to school in the fall and take their final courses if they don't like where they were drafted or face a stiff battle in camp.

    The CFL is partially at the mercy of the CIS rules which are so bizarre and non-uniform that they don't follow a logical pattern. The incoming player has all the cards. Even a Matt Norman who has spent the summer starting for the BC Lions is still eligible to return to Western and play this fall there while he completes an university program that changes it's requirements for graduation in the 2013-2014 school year.

    It's not like the NFL or NBA where once a play declares for the draft the NCAA removes their eligibility whether they have 1, 2 or even 3 years remaining. It's very similar to the NHL where drafted players with NCAA eligibility can head to school rather than join their drafted team.
