Stop rewarding failure, in other words.
Though it curdles some Canadian blood to consider such a move, it’s time to follow the cold-hearted American lead in which it’s all or nothing for kickers. These guys may be people just like you and me. They might choke up when they watch Hallmark commercials or listen to Jann Arden sing over SPCA ads. They might be under a lot of pressure.
Doesn’t matter. It’s time to be a little ruthless with them.
Make your kicks or walk off the field with nothing.
How could someone be so wrong? A rouge is not a reward for failure. It is a penalty to the defense in not protecting their end of the field properly. It also rewards the kicking team for kicking the ball into the receiving team's end zone. It is a live ball in the CFL not like the [yawn] NFL with their touch backs and downing of the ball. Now that is real excitement (insert sarcasm here) isn't it? :roll: Why did he not mention the rouge awarded for punting the ball into the end zone? Would he want to take that away as well?
It's not about avoiding becoming Americanized, rather, it is about keeping excitement in the game. Radley (and others) fail to understand that the CFL has superior rules and use any imagined (made up?) negatives to disparage the better game.:cowboy:
