CALGARY - The CBA clock continues to tick, and information emanating from another round of negotiations is not positive.

A source says the CFLPA is expected to make a public statement in the coming days, while two separate sources close to the players add Thursday’s negotiations in Toronto did not go well.

League owners presented an offer similar to the one that was shot down the last time the two sides got together, and with the current CBA set to expire May 30, things are not looking good.

Money continues to be the main issue, with the players wanting increased league revenues to be tied to player salaries and the owners offering only incremental salary-cap increases.

Strike ballots have also been mailed out to players, the source adds, who is convinced training camps — slated to open June 1 — will not start on time.

Another round of talks were slated for Friday in Toronto.
