Please stick to reporting what's happening in the Game rather than stroke egos (ie, some on-air people seem to like to hear their own voice).
No matter what on-air team is covering a game, it gets frustrating to hear them yammer on while we miss what's happening on the field of play.
Most obvious examples are penalties called on the field and the fans left without a clue as to what's just occurred because the announcers are off in never-never land.
A couple of times the Cats were penalized and I still don't know for what and why. The worst was after a Setta kick off. A flag is thrown near the point of tackle, the ref seems to indicate a push or illegal use of hands, it seemed Barker was the culprit and the Cats had to re-kick. What the %^$@#!.
If the team was offside on the kick, what was the flag down field for???
Why were the Cats nailed for a delay of game? Not explained.
I seem to recall another penalty that went unexplained (and not just this game but it has also occurred in games past).
It would be nice if they also explained non-commercial time outs. It's often for an injury and perhaps they don't want to dwell on showing an injured player but many times the delay goes unexplained and everyone is just "hanging around" waiting for play to resume.
(side note re officiating... don't know the name of the head official last night but he is from the Hamilton area (he and family used to sit near us in Box C) and it sometimes seems he goes out of his way to prove he isn't favouring Hamilton by some of his calls and non-calls. There were many Rider holds last night not called. One obvious one was on Cats left D-end by the Riders right tackle, not called by head ref (nearest the play) but fortunately the back judge called the Riders left tackle for holding on the same play... poetic justice in action.)
