How do the players deal with it without wanting to string up a couple of the "zebras" by their little thumbs? Okay.... everyone is human and some things get missed BUT come on this is getting ridiculous. At least be consistent for goodness sake.
Remember when B.C, won that game against Montreal a few weeks back because of a time clock issue? Since then I've been watching much more closely and watching for specific infractions.
Case in point: Yesterday's game. B.C. vs Saskatchewan
- Simon is being grabbed in the end zone and misses a good chance at a touch down. No call!
- Chick rolls onto Printers while he was lying on the ground. There was no way Printers was trying to get up. Even the announcers thought a penalty should have been called. No call!
- Armstead returns a punt for mega yards and yet clearly one of our players pursuing Armstead was pushed and knocked down from behind. No call!
- Simon is clearly being held and grabbed onto by the defender in the end zone that resulted in the interception that killed B.C. No call!
None of these 4 calls were so called "judgment calls" in my opinion.
That is 4 that I saw that were missed against Saskatchewan. Sure, some were missed against B.C. and some will say that in the end "it all balances out". This is not how games should be won or lost. That is not how officiating should work at this level. It makes the CFL bush league. And bush league the CFL is NOT! I'm not whining because B.C. lost. Saskatchewan was fully deserving of the win. Good for them. But 4 obvious missed calls in one game? For me that really detracts from the game. I would really like to know what kind of training these officials get.
