Did anyone notice the hit by Sask’s #26 on Henry Burris late in the third quarter of yesterday’s game? It was a carbon copy of the description of the Jimenez hit. To add some semblance of balanced thought, a quality that eludes far too many Rider fans, the hit came from behind around the back of Burris’ ankles, occurred well after the ball had been thrown to the opposite side of the field, and was flagged. The only difference between the two plays? Calgary’s DE was seriously injured on the play and miraculously Burris was not.
WTF are you talking about, who has questioned that play/penalty, he hit him below the knees automatic penalty all year??? Let me guess the next item you are going to bring up is the Perry hit on ol' glass jaw those many moons ago??
I asked this question before was it the action of the hit or severity of the hitthat is the issue? I didnt see either one. If Burris suffered a broken leg this would be front and center today. Regardless the CFL has to change the rule on this type of block in the offseason.
Well sixpacked, apparently BobbyP didn’t have any trouble at all understanding my point, how come you did?
After reading your response, I looked at the play again on my PVR and it is exactly as I described it. God only knows what you were looking at.
Now Papa, I wasn't dumping on JM. I just don't think he's in the same class as Burris.
Austin has done wonders with KJ's confidence and decision making this year and if Hufnagel can do the same with Burris - which I think he can - trading Burris would be a mistake of monumental proportions.
