"I don't think the referees like Pinball," Bruce said after the game, referring to Argos head coach Michael Clemons, who is black. "I think they are racists. How come there are no black referees in the CFL? They're racists."
"How much did [Montreal's] coach pay the refs, that's what I want to know?" Bruce said. "Good luck to them in the Grey Cup. I hope they pay them off there, too. Make another $5,000.
"It's frustrating when you know that you didn't get dominated. They get 14 men — the crowd and the refs. . . . It's like going to the mall to buy something for $10 that should really be $3."I realize his frustrations and all, but the Als made the bigger plays today when it mattered most and blaming refs and their judgment/belief system is totally out of whack. I know you'll all agree with me when I say that it's completely uncalled for, and that he'll most definitely be fined for this.
And yes Tuck, despite putting a negative spin on this, I'm still a diehard Argo fan.
