Doug Brown no longer sits at the bargaining table, but he's still extremely concerned about the potential for a CFL work stoppage.

The former Winnipeg Blue Bombers defensive lineman took time from the KidSport football camp he was running on Saturday morning to share his views on what appears to be a significant divide between CFL owners and the CFLPA.

"It seems that they have so far to go with so little time, that's what is most depressing about this," said Brown, who retired in March of 2012 after playing 11 seasons with the Blue Bombers. "I haven't been involved in the meetings and of course, they're not negotiating publicly but right now the stuff you see with proposals that have been tabled, I don't want to say they're disrespectful but they're not fair.
