The Canadian Football League announced today that it has fined Edmonton Eskimos Trevor Gaylor for making disparaging public comments towards CFL officiating. Consistent with CFL policy, the amount of this fine was not disclosed.
I wouldn't pay the fine if I was Trevor Gaylor.The last time I checked people had the right to free speech in Canada and just because the CFL doesn't like players and coaches pointing out that the officals are doing a losey job doesn't give thwem the right to try and take it away.
When did I say that people aren't accountable for what they say? The point I'm trying to make here is that instead of levying dumb fines maybe the CFL brass should pull there heads out of there asses and actually do something about the crappy job the refs are doing.
