I know the refs take a lot of abuse in the media and by fans. I thought last nights game was well called and just wanted to say good job to the refs. The one pass interference call against the Lions was weak, but other than that I thought they did a very good job.
I heard some grumbling about the hit on Durant when he did a hook slide - the Lion lead with his head which is why (in my opinion anyway) he got called. The hit wasn’t really late or hard, but he lead with his head on a hook slide.
Also, unlikely anyone other than Rider fans got to listen to the “Touchdown Club” on Regina’s 620 CKRM, but Tom Higgins did an interview and I have to say - I am pretty impressed with his outlook. He knows there are issues with consistant calls, and they seem to be really working on it.
Officiating is not a perfect science at game speed, and remember we always have the advantage of stop motion replays to see what happened.
