The question was simple: What would CFL fans think if the players voted against ratifying the collective bargaining agreement?

There is now concern among some CFL types that the players could strike down the tentative CBA agreement that was reached on Saturday night. One CFL source said Sunday night that he was concerned about the “vocal minorities” in locker-rooms across the country. B.C., Calgary, Ottawa and Regina apparently have veterans strongly telling teammates to vote no.

It’s believed Edmonton, Winnipeg, Hamilton, Montreal, and Toronto have less defiant locker-rooms than those other CFL centres, but there are upset veterans all over the place.

Thanks to Twitter, you can get a decent feel for public sentiment on any topic. Here is a sampling of what CFL fans will feel if the players vote against the CBA agreement that is on the table.
