As Head of CFL Officiating.
Glen Johnson has plain and simply been a detriment to the CFL. With him came an over emphasis on calls being determined by a replay official. And when a ruling has to be made, because of the inconsistency, no one has a clue which way it will go.
And you have to hold your breadth when your team makes a great defensive play because it might be challenged for illegal contact on a receiver far away from the play.
In the meantime officiating on the field has gone completely downhill. No consistency on pass interference, obvious infractions are not called, yet ticky tack ones are.
A perfect example of all this was the Argos/Bombers game tonight. And you have a poor lady in Winnipeg out $1 million because of, to quote Marv Levy, some “over officious jerk.”
