I have to admit, and I'm a TiCats fan, that was a cheesy call, from what I saw on the replay the hand wasn't inside the one yard neutral zone by very much. Argos got ripped off on this potentially game changing call.
TORONTO — The Canadian Football League fined Toronto Argonauts coach Bart Andrus $1,000 and linebacker Zeke Moreno an undisclosed sum for "publicly disparaging" league officiating.
Andrus and Moreno both questioned the quality of game officials in the wake of Friday's 26-17 loss to Hamilton, during which an offside call nullified a 47-yard interception return for a touchdown by Moreno.
Andrus said: "I'm just saying the stuff is not consistent, game to game, crew to crew. What's a penalty one week isn't a penalty the next week. There are times when I don't know what to tell our guys."
Moreno added: "I don't really like to complain about officiating, but there were so many calls in this game that kind of make me wonder how much effort and time these officials put into scouting and watching film."
