With talks between the Canadian Football League and the CFL Players Association at a standstill, the league has taken its message directly to the membership. Shortly after talks broke off during the latest bargaining session Wednesday morning, the league issued letters to the individual players which proposes a nine per cent increase in the salary cap for this coming season from $4.4 million to $4.8 million, with increases continuing over five season until the salary cap reaches $5,050,000. The proposal would see the minimum salary increased from $45,000 to $50,000, and the average salary go from - by the leagues math - $82,904 to $92,917. "Unfortunately the unions bargaining team has rejected this offer and instead put forward an unrealistic proposal which, if adopted, would threaten the very existence of the CFL," commissioner Mark Cohon said. "This is why we are now communicating directly to the players." The CFLPA has taken its message to the fans. In a letter published on the unions Facebook page, the players association apologized to fans for the state of negotiations and "only want a fair deal that reflects the concept of Players sharing in the potential growth of what we have all built." "As professionals, we want to be fairly compensated for the fast pace, physical, entertaining game that is on the field. We are in not interested in destroying the game that has given us all so much. We put our bodies, hearts and souls on the line and seek nothing more than to be fairly paid for what we do," the letter, signed by president Scott Flory, CFLPA Executive and All CFL Players, said. "We understand the limitations, but we also understand what is fair. It is unfortunate that the business side of the game has tarnished what we are building. We want to build a partnership where both sides benefit." The league has also proposed increasing the size of game day rosters from 42 to 44 players and limiting full contact practices to one per week during the season, with up to 10 more being held during the season at the teams discretion. In addition, the league is dangling signing bonuses for every player if a deal is ratified by June 2, the first day or training camp. Rookies would receive $1,000 each, with veterans collecting $3,000 apiece. The latest move by the league comes after a previous offer to the CFLPA was rejected on May 16. The players returned with an offer on May 20, which asked for an increase in the salary cap to $6.24 million for this coming season, with further increases to be built on top of that, starting in 2015, based on sharing in the leagues revenue streams. "Were not going to add revenue sharing to a CBA; weve been crystal clear with the Players Association about it," said Cohon. "But we will do a deal that shares more revenue. Were saying to the players were going to pay you more. Were going to up the minimum salary by 11 per cent. Those are all numbers that show we are committed to getting a deal done." TSN reported Tuesday that the players were planning to propose on Wednesday a formula for the cap based solely on sharing revenue streams that would put the cap at $7 million. دیدن لینک ها برای شما امکان پذیر نیست. لطفا ثبت نام کنید یا وارد حساب خود شوید تا بتوانید لینک ها را ببینید.

While the pair of Spain internationals return, midfielder Xavi Hernandez will not be included in the squad after failing to recover from a muscle strain to his left leg.LONDON, Ont. - After the TOUR Championship of Canada presented by Freedom 55 Financial was captured by Vancouvers Ryan Williams, Joel Dahmen wrapped up PGA TOUR Canada Player of the Year honours at the 2014 seasons final event. The 26-year old Dahmen, who led the Order of Merit wire-to-wire and finished the season with $80,992 in earnings, is one of five players who earned status on the Web.com Tour in 2015. Dahmen, who won two of the first three events on PGA TOUR Canada this season at the PC Financial Open and the Syncrude Boreal Open presented by AECON, finished $20,873 ahead of No. 2 Matt Harmon and will be fully exempt on the Web.com Tour next season. “Its a goal at the beginning of the year but you have to take it one tournament at a time and then set some goals along the way. To finally accomplish it feels great,” said Dahmen. “To win two right off the bat - I had a bullseye on my back for a long time. I had a huge lead most of the year. I had a good finish, second in Calgary, I finished second right after the RBC Canadian Open - and that set me apart. So I had to refocus a few times and gather things. Its a big relief right now.” Williams, a 33-year old in his sixth season on PGA TOUR Canada, carded a final round 68 to reach 14-under par and win by one over fellow British Columbian and travelling roommate Adam Cornelson along with Minnesotan Clayton Rask. The win moves him to No. 6 on the Order of Merit, earning an exemption into the final stage of Web.com Tour Q-School. “I wish there were more tournaments left on this tour,” said Williams. &lldquo;A lot of hard work, Ive been out on this tour for six or seven years, my best finish was last year, second place.dddddddddddd. I had a putt to force a playoff on the last hole (at the Cape Breton Celtic Classic) and thankfully, I had a putt today to win a tournament. A lot of hard work and a lot of people to thank, but this is very rewarding to me. Williams began the day two shots off Rasks 54 hole lead, and after a turning in even par on the front nine, turned on the jets with four birdies coming in. After Cornelson, playing in the group ahead, made bogey following a wayward drive, and Rask couldnt convert a par putt after missing the green long, Williams needed just a two-putt from 35 feet to secure his first PGA TOUR Canada victory. “I was a little in shock. I had to ask my caddie Rob if that was the winning putt,” admitted Williams. “I was trying not to get ahead of myself too much. I was just trying to make the putt and see what happened from there. I knew where I stood, I was just trying to take the pressure off myself.” Joining Dahmen on the Web.com Tour next year will be Harmon, a 29-year old from Grand Haven, Michigan, 25-year old Timothy Madigan of Rio Rancho, New Mexico, 33-year old Brock Mackenzie of Seattle, Washington and 22-year old Greg Eason, a rookie from England. “Its been a tremendous season with an incredibly high level of play,” said PGA TOUR Canada President Jeff Monday. “We cant wait to see these players move on to the next level and make an impact there as they continue their journey to the PGA TOUR.” ' ' '
