TORONTO (AP) - Canadian Football League training camps will open as scheduled Sunday despite another breakdown in contract talks between the league and its players.

Negotiations ended Thursday afternoon after the CFL rejected the union’s latest proposal, one that included an amendment to its original demand revenue sharing be included in this deal. The players conceded revenue sharing in the current agreement, which was signed prior to the 2010 season.

The CFLPA’s proposal came in response to one tabled Wednesday night by the CFL, which Commissioner Mark Cohon called its “best and final offer.”

The current collective bargaining agreement expired at midnight EDT.


While CFLPA President Scott Flory has maintained the union won’t play under terms of the present contract, veteran players will report Sunday for the opening of training camp.

No new talks have been scheduled.
