Agree about questionable officiating.
It was the same deep back judge who was very late with an interference call at another point in the game (Calgary receiver over the middle in close contact with 2 TiCat defenders, no flag thrown until the receiver (#85?) got up and started whining, then suddenly the deep judge throws his very late flag). It was either a penalty or it wasn’t, no need to think about it or be influenced. And where were all the holds on TiCat receivers as they TRIED to get down field?
re holding, funny how Cats get called so often yet other teams are practically perfect (separate from perceived quality of the OL talent). IIRC, Calgary wasn’t called (were they nailed at all?) until very late in the game when it’s often conceded that holding could be called on a majority of plays. Same vs Montreal in previous game… apparently their OL was perfect and never hold, yet somehow DL players are being tackled.
TiCats seem to have at least one very bad call made/not made per game.
Was it vs Montreal or Winnipeg where an obvious helmet-to-helmet hit on Porter was not called? Even the TSN halftime crew highlighted the play and all agreed it had to be called.
Game in Edmonton when Miles got nailed over the middle (by Barenechea) as the ball was thrown yet no call. (Even going back (to the Maas era) and the very obvious non-call with Bauman vs Eskimos (Maas pass when Bauman had his arm yanked as the ball arrived))
Numerous others in numerous games that leave you shaking your head.
Inexplicable calls/non-calls… makes you wonder.
