Two quick interceptions against the Argos in the first few minutes of the game and I was looking for a total Lions blow out! But no way!
27 penalties???? What the hey? Give me a break. On the other thread I was trying to give the guys in the zebra shirts a little moral support and say that for the most part they usually get it right. I may have to change my stripes after watching today's game. Maybe the refs are not as good as I thought. The Lions were robbed of a TD interception when Williams was called for being off-side. He wasn't. Then Toronto after a great 3 down goal line stance gets called for being off-side giving the Lions a new set of downs resulting in a TD. Karma? I guess that's what some would call it.
Question for the board:
I thought all scoring plays are reviewed. When Parker ran the ball in for a TD after intercepting Ray's pass wasn't the play reviewed and wouldn't the erroneous off-side penalty call against Williams be included in the review and subsequently overturned? That would have allowed the TD to stand. Maybe they need to make a rule change that includes penalty calls during a scoring play.
