If the salary management system is rejected at the league meetings next week, Tom Wright's future in the CFL will become a hot topic.

Without a contract for 2007, Wright isn't exactly on stable ground to begin with.

The salary cap appears to be one of his main objectives - and failure at the board of governors' table will be anything but a vote of confidence.

But Wright doesn't plan on walking away from his job if the cap isn't approved.

"I think membership has its privileges," said Wright, "and part of those (privileges) is the fact you can agree or disagree with what I propose.

"People have to understand that the salary management system is being put forward by a team of owners and operators from across the league - and I am part of that team," he continued.

"And frankly, it is the board of governors that will decide.

"Ultimately, I am paid to do a job ... and I have a job to complete."
