WINNIPEG - If the Winnipeg Blue Bombers are disappointed with the contents of the tentative deal reached late Saturday night between the CFL and the CFLPA, they’re doing a good job of keeping it to themselves.

While several players around the league voiced their displeasure to members of the media or on social media, the Blue Bombers who addressed the issue on Sunday sounded relieved that the show would go on and that at least for the time being, a strike has been avoided.

“I’m in favour of playing and getting it done,” said Blue Bombers defensive back Alex Suber.

Blue Bombers player rep Glenn January didn’t want to go into the specifics of the proposed deal that still requires a ratification vote.

“My reaction is that it’s tentative right now and I’m going to withhold comment until it’s official, just because I don’t want to do anything that could potentially jeopardize a deal that at this point could potentially be fragile,” said January.
