Sometimes they do it make the ref feel like they missed a call. That way later on the ref might be inclined to give them a break on a marginal call in order to make amends.
But if you do it every time, you end up being the boy who cried wolf. The officials will ignore it, and it won't have the desired effect.

Masoli has regressed as a starter.

When's the last time the dude threw 23 completions in a row?

Like, 2017??

Brutal.

Well he better do it the next game or for sure/maybe/probably not June Jones will have to put in the saviour of the franchise to bail out this mediocre QB who has been a named starter for a whole 4 games this year and only won two. Maybe we should trade him for a 5th round draft choice.

QB's are as good as their O-Line blocking and receivers ....Toliver shoulda caught the deep pass early in the game , Speedy didn't react well to the long ball thrown late in the game ,a good receiver would have got their hands on the ball.
 Toliver had his hands on the ball ...Tommy Joe Coffey would have caught both .....  
With you all the way re: 1st comment about QBs as god as their O-line.  Thought that for years inclusive of Anthony Calvillo.  He too was mediocre until his O-line got strong.

What?  What planet you live on?  Masoli has done a very decent job this year, he is not Elite but done ok.  Not regressed, has delivered what he is capable of

Thanks to @Doc_Dave for sig

Philly Canuck these are great observations. I'm not sure how some people cannot notice this. All 4 of the receivers not named Tasker can hardly be called "clutch". If Banks and Saunders make all the plays they are supposed to then Masoli would be on a streak of 400 yard games instead of just 300. How many of Masoli's incompletions were right in the mitts of the receiver only to see a drive stalled? If those catches are made we might have won all 4 games so far.
Has anyone mentioned Chapman? Is he supposed to be the next  'clutch receiver'?  From the amount of $$$ he is asking, it sure sounds like it.
.
I have never been a big fan of the '1st' pick overall in the draft, for many reasons. 
 - asking too much money.
 - big chance of them not signing, & going to the NFL.
 - our scouts have not been the best, & History has shown how many  'duds' we picked as #1, that fizzled.  Who was our last #1 pick,who actually made an impact on our Team?
.
I would have preferred we trade our #1 pick, for an established wide receiver.
Maybe I am dreaming...

Going for another league record this week - ho hum mediocrity at it's finest.  Wish he lived up to the standard of say a guy like Quinton Porter who we could have really rallied behind.

At least Grover gets it.

But let's not hang our hat on this meaningless CFL record, should it come to pass (pun intended) next week.

He's passed for over 300 yards 4 times this year and is 2-2.

End of story.

Wasn't a #1 overall pick.  Chapman, Gaydosh, Rottier, Barker, Bauman, Wayne Smith - all were #1 overall for us.

It's not the End of Story.

The story is way more complex than that with many plot twists.

Burris had a great year in 2012 under the Cortez offence but still ended up 6-12. At times putting up 30 or 40 points in a game and still losing because of the abysmal Casey Creehan led defense.

A QB can play great but if there are parts of the team not performing well then the end result might not be favorable.

And in our two losses...tell me our defence didn't play well or were abysmal.

We've given up 46 total points in those two losses.

Sorry hendy77, but any record held or shared by Sam Etcheverry is far from "meaningless".  For me, any discussion about historical CFL greats or quarterbacks that does not include a reference to Sam Etcheverry simply shows lack of appreciation and knowledge of CFL tradition.  The fact that Masoli shares this particular record, and being only one of three who have ever played the game to do so, IMO does most certainly speak highly of his abilities, and regardless of our comments here, of his consistency.
