On Labour day game all the fans who read this post and who find officiating in this league to be horrible wear Glasses the league will know why we all did it and thats better then a GM commenting on the calls or a coach the Cfl is a game for the fans so we show them our disgust So wear Sunglasses prescripton glasses those huge dollar store glasses just imagine 29,000 fans all in glasses the CFL can't dispute numbers.....
or binoculars or a large magnifying glass
And we all know who we are going to get as head referee that day, don't we?
maybe large signs offering to pay Jake more money than he makes on betting......
This is a great idea, i hope the teams marketing department gets behind this idea, but i doubt they will or else Black will have a brain anyerism.
And i wonder if any calls will go our way in that game? lol
Maybe we could also make signs indicating the blown calls to date. I have just been watching some of the games that I have on tape and it is pretty incriminating. And just so that they know it is not sour grapes by Hamilton fans, we could quote the TSN commentators. Here are just a few examples from Cuthbert and Suitor:
"Is that a late hit on the QB (Maas). Sure looks like it. Oh, facemask Hamilton"
After the Anderson ejection "this is rough play, but I would love to hear the explanation for this week as to why that's an ejection"
"Anderson was called for spearing last week but when Charlie saw the tape, he let him off the hook" Hmmmmm
"It just seems that every penalty Hamilton takes has been at a critical time" This quote after an interception by Hamilton was overturned. When the replay was shown, it revealed that Wayne was pushed into Glenn by Winnipeg #53. Suitor's comment "this is not a reviewable play".
Or alternately we could list all the non-calls that could have helped Hamilton against Edmonton i.e. spearing, holding, pass interference.
I have never been one to complain about the refs, but even when the commentators are indicating that things are suspect, you have to wonder.
How about we all get up and walk out when Jake 's name is announced. We know how the game will end
I like the dollar store big glasses. How about 29000 fans dressed in striped shirts, with the big glasses. that would be hilarious!!
And wearing Tom Donahoe masks lol.
How about we all quit whining and enjoy the game
Well then expect to always feel the same about officiating. I've been watching CFL ball for 30 plus years and the whining has always been the same and just as unjustified
Or how about striped shirts, dark glasses AND white canes!
I think it would be real funny to see. Might have to trade the wave in for synchronized head bobbing though. :lol:
Interesting since I'll already be set with my regular glasses, buttt what would even be better is .......
On the next "blind" call or non-call just have a big Sub commercial on the TigerVision with a real honest guy in a striped shirt saying he screwed up and would make things good in the second half.
That might even make a Mastercard commercial.
On the next "blind" call or non-call just have a big Sub commercial on the TigerVision with a real honest guy in a striped shirt saying he screwed up and would make things good in the second half.that would be great!!! Good idea. I wonder if Hamilton would get fined for that, though?? Hopefully not!!
I say we all go to the dollar store and buy some water guns and take aim at the officials. We could make some changes so that instead of water as the ammo, it could be something else. 8)
That could help solve the lineups at the Men's Jakes at half-time...
