Following unproductive meetings with Canadian Football League executives and the leagues legal counsel Friday, the Canadian Football League Players Association has decided to take a significant step to emphasize its solidarity in negotiations: The union has begun sending strike ballots by priority mail. Matt Beleskey Jersey . A player confirmed to TSN on the condition of anonymity that he received his ballot yesterday. Another confirms hes been told to expect his shortly. "The unions executive committee insists a strike vote does not mean were pushing away from the table," the player said. "But we want the league to know were serious about our position." The players executive committee includes union president Scott Flory, vice-presidents Jay McNeil, Marwan Hage and Jeff Keeping and treasurer Brian Ramsay. Keeping (Toronto Argonauts) and Ramsay (Edmonton Eskimos) are the two active players on the committee. The league and players are still scheduled to meet in Toronto Wednesday - eight days before the current CBA is set to expire on May 29 - when the players will table a new proposed collective bargaining agreement that will include a revenue sharing scheme with the union requesting a percentage of gate, sponsorship and television revenue. With each revenue stream the union is proposing its share be in the range of approximately 40-55 per cent. The proposal includes a salary cap of approximately $7 million in the first year of a new CBA. In 2013, the last year of the current agreement, the salary cap was $4.4 million. The league has so far been reluctant to discuss any revenue sharing model. "Weve been told to expect a step back tomorrow (from the owners)," the player says. The CFLPA requires more than 50 per cent of its players to confirm a strike vote. But the players must adhere to provincial labour laws, and cannot picket immediately. According to a source with knowledge of the talks, only players in certain provinces, where a strike vote can happen before the current bargaining expires, have received their ballots. Terry OReilly Jersey . Moments after his Brooklyn Nets teammates ran out onto the court to congratulate him following their 100-98 overtime win over the Phoenix Suns on Friday night, Johnson could only shake his head at scoring only 13 points on 6-of-19 shooting. Charlie McAvoy Jersey . - The Florida Panthers are getting some Army training to finish off their preparations for the season. http://www.thebostonbruinshockey.com/dennis-seidenberg-hockey-jersey/ . He managed to save par, and went on to put together his best opening round of the year. Calcavecchia and Wes Short Jr. ATLANTA -- Already established as the best player in golf, Rory McIlroy approached the FedEx Cup finale as though he had nothing to lose. Except now he has so much to gain. McIlroy was plodding along Saturday in the Tour Championship, frustrated by a pair of three-putt bogeys and a round that "wasnt much to look at out there" when his prospects changed quickly. He fired a 5-iron from 209 yards up the hill to 25 feet on the par-5 15th and holed it for eagle to tie Billy Horschel for the lead. McIlroy finished with a chip out of thick grass behind the 18th green to save par for a 3-under 67. Horschel made two bogeys on the back nine and had to settle for a 69, still his 11th straight round in the 60s during the FedEx Cup, and still in great position to leave Atlanta with the biggest Sunday payoff in golf. They were at 9-under 201. And they had plenty of company in what was shaping up as perhaps the most enticing finish in the eight-year history of the FedEx Cup. Jim Furyk, winless since he captured the FedEx Cup four years ago, had a 67 and was two shots behind. He would have to win the Tour Championship to have any chance of joining Tiger Woods as the only multiple winners of the FedEx Cup. Another shot behind were Rickie Fowler (67), Justin Rose (66) and Jason Day (70). Horschel was just trying to advance to the third playoff event when he was runner-up at the TPC Boston. He won the following week at Cherry Hills and came into the Tour Championship as the No. 2 seed. And now he is 18 holes away from a $10 million bonus and a five-year exemption on the PGA Tour. "In the middle of the year, Im not sure if you told me I would have a chance on Sunday to win the Tour Championship and possibly the FedEx Cup and do it while going up against the best player in our game right now ... no matter what happens, its going to be an exciting day," Horschel said. "And hopefully, Rory and I can put on a great show." McIlroy already has won two majors, the British Open and PGA Championship, sandwiched around a World Golf Championship. He kept reminding himself that hes already had the best year of anyone, a year most anyone would take over a $10 million bonus. But now he is close to giving his big year the finish he thinks it deserves. "Ive come here with the ultimate goal of trying to cap it off and trying to put an exclamation point on it or the icing on the cake or whatever you want to call it," McIlroy said. "Would it be poetiic justice? Id feel really good about it. Jake DeBrusk Jersey. " McIlroy says he hasnt been playing his best, certainly not at the same level as Hoylake or Valhalla, where he won his two majors. But he was good enough. He three-putted the par-3 second hole, missing a 3-foot putt. He had to make a 4-footer to avoid his third four-putt in two weeks. But all was forgotten with his eagle on the 15 and his tough par save on the 18th. Horschel stretched his lead to three shots with a 6-foot birdie putt on No. 8 and matching two-putt birdies with McIlroy at the ninth. Both players made bogey on No. 10, and McIlroy appeared to be in more trouble at the par-3 11th until the worlds No. 1 player chipped to 8 feet and saved par, and Horschel missed his 15-foot birdie attempt. "My short game really saved me today," McIlroy said. "I think the par putt on 11 was a big momentum putt in the round after three-putting 10 and Billy being in there pretty close and just narrowly missing for birdie. I think being able to hole that par putt was big." The top five seeds at the Tour Championship -- Horschel is No. 2, McIlroy is No. 4 -- only have to win the Tour Championship to capture the FedEx Cup. This is the first time that two top-five seeds are in the final group of the final tournament of the year. Furyk doesnt need to do the math. He only knows he has to win, and that was his priority after another year of close calls. Ditto for Fowler (No. 9) and Day (No. 10). "Really all you can ask for going into the week is to be in a position to win Sunday," Fowler said. "The tournament is really going to start tomorrow on the back nine. I know pretty much most of the scenarios for me. I know if I win Ive got a pretty good chance. I know theres some possibilities of some extracurricular activities if certain things line up properly." He was referring to the most bizarre possibility of all -- if Fowler and McIlroy are tied at the end of regulation, there would be a sudden-death playoff to determine who wins the Tour Championship. And if Fowler were to win the tournament in that case, there would be another playoff to decide the FedEx Cup and the $10 million. Fowler first would have to make up three shots on McIlroy, which is not easy under any circumstances. And while McIlroy is running low on fuel, theres only one lap left. "Obviously, I know what comes along with the FedEx Cup and cash and all the rest of it," McIlroy said. "But I just want to win."
