TORONTO – The Canadian Football League announced today that it has fined the following players:
Hamilton Tiger-Cat defensive back Craig Butler for a dangerous and illegal hit in which he made primary contact with his opponent’s helmet during last Friday night’s game against the Toronto Argonauts. As per league policy, the amounts of the player fines were not disclosed.
Okay once again the League Officials Head Glen Johnson has screwed up just like the CFL officials this year, they fine Craig Butler for a hit that No one remembers, yet allows an Argo defender Shea Emry to take an illegal hit on Zach Collaros after the official threw a flag and ruled that Emry was offside on the play he still takes a full hit against Collaro's.
The BS Refereeing in this league has to stop, how can one player be fined when another is not and even for a worse hit? Collaros has already been knocked out of seven games this year due to a concussion. I want to know How much of a bribe Glen Johnson accepted to make the call fore a fine against Butler but not fine Emry for a Dirty cheap shot on our QB???
