And all from the same game . Scorecard reads Riders 2 Cats 2 . Who would've thought that the score on the fines would be closer than the final score of the game ?

What is a tourist hit?

Synonym for “blindside”.

Really?? I never heard that term. Thanks.

Is that because that’s what tourists do, or because that’s what we’re supposed to do to tourists?


Welll that all depends !!! :rofl:

It is a hit inflicted on the visiting team. :wink: :wink:
Actually a hit illegally because the player wasn’t expecting it or could see it coming.

The Canadian Football League needs to scrap the term tourist hit. A blindside hit is much more accurate in definition of the great English language ! :face_with_raised_eyebrow:

Except it is 2 different things
A tourist hit, the Victim was not involved in the play, he was just standing there watching the play, like a tourist Whether or not is was blindside does not matter. The contact was unnecessary

A blindside hit the player is involved and is hit from the blindside
