Admitedly, I haven’t watched many games this year, but after watching tonight’s game, it sure seems to me that the CFL officiating has gotten worse.
They call a cheap RTP to start when a QB ducks into a tackle, then miss 2 the other way that literally knocked the QB’s helmet off. Plus a facemask where the defender grabbed the face opening and used the helmet to rip the runner’s head back.
I’ve mostly stopped watching because of declining play quality, but damn! If this is what the officiating has gone down to, I’ll be watching a lot less!
It wouldn’t surprise me if Lions continue to get the benefit of the officials calls until Grey Cup. Then it’ll be called evenly. Amar needs to sell season tickets for 2024 that way more people might opt in for Grey Cup tickets.
It was not only the Rider/Lions game. In the Calgary/Ottawa game,Crum was hit downfield by Awe. No call and Dyce challenged. He lost but I can’t figure out why. If you look at the play Awe is leading with his head, his arms almost behind his back. His shoulder hits Crum in the face, Crum losses his helmet and the command center syas this is a clean hit. makes you wonder…
