Can someone explain this to me?
Edmonton leads 16-13 and are deep in the Cats end 3rd and short, they line up as if they are going for it, the ref blows time in, the 20 second clock starts. Edmonton change their minds and want to go for a field goal. The ref tells the time keeper to stop the play clock at 14 seconds while Edmonton sets up. Play is called in and Edmonton calls a time out with a second left.
Am I missing something, but once the play is called in the offensive team has 20 seconds to get the play off or they use their time out if they don't want a penalty. If they play clock should not have been started then the ref tells the time keeper to reset the clock to 20 seconds. I have never seen it stopped with the time remaining. Inessence, Edmonton was give two timeouts.
