There’s a school of thought among Tiger-Cat fans that CFL refs are, for some mysterious unexplained reason, always against us. People seem to notice bad calls that go against us, ignore the ones that work in our favour, and reach the conclusion that the world (and in paricular Jake Ireland) is out to get us.
I’ve never subscribed to that theory, largely because it’s ridiculous. As evidence, I will point out that both Printers TDs last night were probably awarded in error. Close calls to be sure, but my gut (and the replays) tell me that we got away with a couple there. If those had been Kerry Joseph plays, I can only imagine what the reaction would be from Ticat fans.
I’ll take the points and the win, but let’s try to keep some perspective next time a call doesn’t go our way.
