    Man, back in the day... 32 man active roster with a 3 man taxi squad. Thirty five man roster... Today 46. CFL head coaches 35 years ago would have loved to have that size of roster. Only 2 assistant coaches too. Now we have 8. Still about half the size of an NFL coaching staff. The thing that gets me is that we have positions that have no coaches. And it is different on every team. On some teams there are no qb coaches. On others, no receiver coaches.. Still some may not have linebackers...
    Never understood why all the postions weren't covered... That would make 7 position coaches. Then have strength & conditioning & ST's. You'd need 11 coaches with the coordinators included. Spend the money where it needs to be spent like coaches. Cut back in other areas.
    Rather than paying for & having a scout in charge of Canadian player personnel, hire someone to do it privately. Someone say, like Rids to scout Canadian universities for each individual teams. Get monthly scouting reports & in the off season meet to discuss draft strategy. It'd be a lot cheaper than paying someone on staff to do that. Just my opinion.

    Import was a tough spot to crack, I thought Samie Parker had a shot, but ultimately not meant to be.

    Little bit surprised about Anthony Cannon, but other than that, nothing too striking.

    Had Trevor Harris not had the game he did on Tuesday, perhaps Santos would have snuck in there.

    I thought Joey Elliott was the definite #4 qb for the Bombers. His throws save for one or two weren't that great & he had that rookie look to him. Goltz looked a lot better. Brink looked poised. Just what is Quinton Porter doing on the Ti cats roster? After 5 seasons, he'll never get better nor ever be a starter. Making him the #2 qb just blocks any development by any other Ti Cat qb. Porter made one real nice throw on that 30 yard fade route for a TD. Thing is, after 5 years he should be able to do that so I wasn't that impressed. And all Rod Black talked about was the Ti Cats Canadian Air Force over & over & over. Just STFU Black, you moron... You've done too many games with Glenn Suitor.

    The Bombers cut Aprile? Wasn't he the receiver they wanted to convert to safety? If so, he never got much of a chance.

    The excuse (explanation) is that Johnny April wanted to go back to school and finish his degree in CIS. Not a bad thought, especially if he was in tough for the position.

    Meanwhile, Jade Etienne (all 6'3" and 154 lbs. of him) survives.

    Same with Mike 'Hornswoggle Leg' Renaud.

    If you've ever heard an interview with Joey Elliot the guy sounds like he's 75 or 80 years old - - - sounds eerily similar to John Laurinaitis from WWE.

    PEOPLE POWER, right Nate?!! BTW, Etienne made a nice catch over the middle. One deep pass was thrown to Cassidy Donnef near the goal line but Etienne was right beside him & both receivers went after the ball only to fall incomplete. The look Donnef gave Etienne, like "What are you doing???" was telling as it seemed like Etienne ran the wrong route. The camera caught that as both receivers were getting up off the ground.

    Went back and added schools for where these guys came from. Some interesting pieces to the puzzle.
