as a former long time high school level football referee, I think I have the right to criticize when the officiating is below standard, and to be frank, the CFL refereeeing is becoming increasinly incompetent. The selective callling of interference when a defender screens is a joke. The 2 point convert ought to clearly have been a call, and TSN did point out a similar botched call that the Cats got away with. Then there is the call on Bo Smith on defence when Jamal charges and runs over top of him, should be offensive and I mentioned a few weeks ago that I thought it was a deliberate style Montreal preaches in having the big receiver attach and engage the defender, to either knock him over or to use the strength to cause separation, and Jammall and Green do it and get away with every time, and those are clearly offensive interefence calls/
And then there is the official who botched and took away the Williams TD. He ought to be canned like the fellow several weeks ago, because that was obvious. There are some great officials, you never hear about them, but there are far too many incompetent boobs which unfortunately can ruin a game and determine the outcome.
As there is no transparency or accountability of the officials, at least publicly aside from one firing, the only solution is to cover the ass of the incompetent refs by making every scoring play reviewable, and adding more challenges. This is not just a one game event for Cat fans, what about the Williams TD/fumble against Winnipeg and the defender preventing the player from getting the fumble with no call, and then another ref makes the call, correctly , about a week later.
CFL, do something because the more cynical fans may start thinking that it is not worth making an emotional and financial commitment to a team or game.
