I have been watching football since the early 70’s and I’ve never saw such a display off ignorance from sask player after the hit on Mazzoli if we want our young people to continue the cfl tradition there is no room for a b.s. hit like that and the afterward attitude the hit was tough to watch and so was the showboating you guys need to suspend his ass for at least 2 games to send a message I think total garbage act from Saskatchewan player all the best to Jeremiah m .

Punctuation. Look up the definition. Use it, please.
Aggressive play is fine, however, it has to be tempered with a brain. Marino obviously doesn't have the latter. Big, dangerous, and dumb, the CFL needs to make an example here and suspend Marino so this kind of blatant stupidity and disregard for player safety doesn't continue.

What about the lineman who gatored Robertson or the Ottawa players who cleared the bench? Or doesnt fit the eastern head office's narrative of racist Rider fans?

I think the racism issue is how it pertains directly to Garrett Marino and what he is alleged to have said at the time of the incident...

The ONLY racism stuff I have heard was directed to the player himself.
But there were people close enough to hear his rant as he was escorted to the room that appeared to be cheering and waving, whether for him or something else is unclear. The coverage was a little chaotic at that point and they may well have been cheering for Masoli as he was carried to the sidelines....

Are you joking? That was a disgusting play, worse the show boating after. Has nothing to do with racism or any other hit.
5 games, 3 for the hit, 2 for the crap after.

What about you shouldn’t want a POS like that on your team? Or any team.

all ive got to say is there definitive proof a racial slur was used...was something said to marino first and he was responding...as to suspension remember bombers hit on durant broke his arm no penalty no suspension ref sais play never happened??? 2019 bombers head to head hit in playoffs took out our quarterback ..no suspension...blantent hit by hamilton on quarterback ..2 games appealled down to 1 and he still does it....the precedent is set....if a long suspension all hits better be reviewed and lots of suspensions...yes walking of was dumb of him..simone lawrence did exact same thing!!

Huh? 2019 Bombers what now?!

Wrong simoni never celebrated when someone has gotten hurt significantly

Let's put it this way Sask fans hate the Marino hit it was garbage and he needs to be suspended and if there were any racial comments he need to be cut. What is irritating as hell though is that there was little to no concern or comments about how Robertson was intentionally injured while already down and not even near the play. Rider fans have a hatred of Simoni and bring him up because he repeatedly hits high, hits late, and has almost ended careers with being dirty but TiCats fans have the stupid blinders on about him. And there have been dirty players across the league throwing late and stupid hits, from every team but those same fans that are screaming about Marino tend to not say a word when it's one of their own players.
It's the whole people in glass houses shouldn't throw stones right

Yes, I do remember that. Obviously, you don't. The play was whistled down because the Riders had jumped offside. Because of crowd noise, neither team realized the play had been whislted down and continued to play.
The no suspension or penalty wasn't because the play was whistled down. It was because just as he was about to get hit Durant threw the ball extending his arm right into the on coming Bomber.
2019 Bombers head to head hit in playoffs took out our quarterback??? What the h-e-double hockey sticks are you talking about. Your quarterback finished the 2019 play off game. Don't you remember Fajardo hitting the upright on the last play of the game. It's all you guys talked about that off season.

Well maybe this is the time we as fans stand up and give everybody a mandate to get that crap out of the game......

I mean you sure didn't seem to mind when it was Odell out there throwing late or high hits as long as he was doing it for the EE right?

So how is Lawrence still allowed to play in hamilton. He has knocked out more QBs and other players by far then anyone. Yet the league let’s him play. He should have been banded years ago as well.

Besides Collaros , name another QB or for that matter another player (any player) that Lawrence has ever knocked out of a game with a dirty hit ?

:sunglasses: Banded.....LOL LOL :roll_eyes:

Behar claims Rider fans are racist because they cheer for a team Marino plays on.

I had front row seats to Lawrence trying to break Fajardo's neck as he was already in the grasp and on the ground
