The CFL strike is over. Unless it isn’t.

Via the Canadian Press, the CFL’s players rejected a proposed deal reached by the CFL and the CFL Players Association to resolve the situation.

The recent shutdown became only the second work stoppage in CFL history. It’s the first since 1974.

The fact that the CFLPA’s Executive Committee recommended the deal means that could be time for a new Executive Committee.

The impact of the vote on the strike currently isn’t known. The Winnipeg Blue Bombers reportedly plan to practice as usual on Tuesday.

Further bargaining could happen to address the concerns of the players who voted against the agreement.

The CFL’s regular season is due to begin on June 9.

  1. Apparently having to show up to actually play the games is a sticking point. Today’s cupcake players can barely create the strength and initiative to lift a pen to sign their own name on a contract. Asking them to actually work is foreign to them. I’m sure they’d like to play by zoom.

    I’m sure you have no idea what kind of commitment it takes to be a pro athlete.
