After seeing the hit in zak I am speechless. That was dangerous
After having a day to cool off - and look up the defenders history - I am willing to change my opinion on the hit to dangerous - and although it still is disgusting to see any player put another it such risk of injury… I hope the CFL uses this example to move player safety forward and let there actions demonstrate that they take this seriously.
The saddest part is that the officials completely missed it. This is something I would be fine having the eye in the sky or the command center review on the fly (don’t hold up the game for it) and if it looks deliberate eject a player for targeting the head.
That's what I was saying tonight. While I don't want to see it go back to the way it was a couple years ago with the multiple challenges per game, something like this could be looked at above. Itd save the coach from using a challenge.
They could look at implementing what they have in the ncaa with the targeting rule resulting in ejection
Willis has put Collaros out with a concussion before when he was a TiCat
Leads with crown, late hit, No Call from Proulx.
When Chris Jones saw the replay on his tablet and had to challenge he was seriously PO’ed
It was an ugly hit, but I think it is time, the league dumps Proulx. He calls every other call why not this one. But then we all know how bad of a Ref he really is. I can only hope Zac is good to go for Play-offs. Its been a wild crazy ride getting here. I have never seen a team make play-offs like we did this year, so bizarre!!
Don’t see the difference between this one and the one on Reilly a couple weeks ago, only this time it’s a Rider on the receiving end instead of the offending end. Ofcourse their fanbase has a much different reaction.
In a replay angle showing Willis’s back it shows first contact was shoulder to chest, and you can see that in this replay he does push off with his shoulder. Yes, there is head contact as well, but that is why I think the 2 are very similar.
