The Canadian Football League has admitted a video-replay official shouldn’t have overturned a call that would have given the Ottawa Redblacks possession of the football in the Montreal Alouettes’ end of the field in the fourth quarter of Friday’s game at TD Place stadium.

“After reviewing the play, we believe that there wasn’t enough indisputable evidence to overturn the call on the field of a fumble,? a league spokesman wrote in an email.

Where did the league admit their error cost Ottawa the lose to Montreal? I really need to see that.

Here is why Ottawa lost to Montreal…

"The Alouettes then ran another 10 plays, draining the remaining time to less than three minutes, before punting. The Redblacks had two subsequent possessions, but never got back into Montreal territory and went on to lost for the 14th time in 16 games."

If that is the case, then it should be a formal announcement.

I never have any faith in unidentified, anonymous sources that say what a writer wants top hear.

Too many on these boards will do everything possible to avoid admitting their teams are actually to blame for a loss...it's always easier to blame other factors. 160 plays in the average CFL game...how does one single play determine an outcome?

It could not be Ottawa's six turnovers, 4 sacks allowed or 143 yards of penalty that cost them the game :lol:

Having the refs literally take the ball away from you and hand it to the other team certainly doesn't help, though. It's not like turnovers are a big deal and a key factor in who wins games, right? :roll:

The magnitude of that play Affected a Nation that night :frowning:

Yup. That turnover puts them in fg range at least. I was a little puzzled with the call. I wouldnt go as far as saying it cost them the game but sure didn't help Ottawa that's for sure.

??????????????????????

And what nation might that be? Your own? You are beginning to sound like that wingnut in Nevada. You two aren't related are you?

TC is President of Molossia ? :lol:

lets be fair TOTAL agree with CFL ruling. So for last week anyone who picked Ottawa give them a win in totals
Anyone who picked Montreal take away the win. Just being very fair

Well, no. Montreal won the game. They won the game with the help of a screwup, but those happen to every team at some point. If we started taking away wins because of mistakes by the officials, there will be a lot of disputed game results.

(It's extra galling because it was the replay official that screwed up, which defeats the point of replay. But that's a question of the quality of replay, not something that you invalidate the results over.)

Did you do that after the league officially(this was not official) announced that there should have been PI in the eastern semi against Hamilton?
The league said that PI challenges were brought in because of that play

Just wondering?

Its quite the assumption that Ottawa would have won the game

and as far as I am concerned...a secret email from an unnamed source is not admitting anything

The booth screws up ALL THE TIME! They get 20-30% of the replays wrong. They're TERRIBLE!

Well 20 percent of 20 percent is a lot better than what we had before.

At least they are admitting to their mistakes. Maybe they should be fining the official who overturned the on field call.

“After reviewing the play, we believe that there wasn’t enough indisputable evidence to overturn the call on the field of a fumble,? [b]a league spokesman wrote in an email[/b].

League fessed up and that is a good thing.

In my books as long as its an unnamed person...nobody fessed nuttin

How do you know that's what the writer wants to hear?

He quotes the e-mail. Are you accusing him of fabricating a quote?
