Waterloo Warriors football players allowed to transfer

June 17, 2010

Canadian Interuniversity Sport announced Wednesday it will allow members of the suspended Waterloo Warriors football team to transfer to another team without facing any penalities. According to CIS rules, transfer students are normally required to sit out a season before being allowed to play. Some parents fear, however, that allowing players to transfer will result in the "death knell of the program" and are recommending that the University "either solve the issue and let the kids play now, or the mass exodus starts Monday." A lawsuit to overturn the decision also seems unlikely. Richard McLaren, a law professor at the University of Western Ontario, notes that the players have no obvious lawsuit, as there was no contract in place.  Daily Gleaner  |  National Post
