Quick question about a play that happened earlier (I didn't get a chance to post because I was reading other topics). Kerry Joseph was sacked in the endzone, and as a result, the Argos had to kick from the 25-yard line. I know the new rule is if you concede a safety, you have to kick from the 25. But Toronto didn't concede that safety. Joseph was sacked. Does that not matter?
Oh, and I need Sask to lose or it's another 1-3 week for me. :oops:
The riders are playing quite well in all three phases of the game but I must say that, in my view, it is 70% because of the Argos imploding - way too many stupid major penalties. But D and special teams have kept the field very short so it was not as difficult for the the O- harder to judge the O because of it, but if points on turnovers is any indication, they are playing spectacular!
I wonder what the record is for most points in one quarter.
I think the rule needs to be tweeked a bit, in the case of safety being conceded through a sack or a loss of yards then the conceding team should be able to kick-off the 35. Kicking off from the 25 should be reserved for intentional concedes.
I think the problem with that distinction is that it can be too subjective as to when it is "conceded" I think a more objective distinction would be when a kicker gives up the safety. Otherwise, I would say a kick-off at the 35 would be more reasonable.
BTW, sorry Chief. Didn't see your post - guess I wasn't alone back then after all.
I'm fine with that, Legal. If the kicker concedes the safety, put it at the 25 (I'm not a big fan of that rule, but I'll accept it). But if the QB is sacked for a safety, put it at the 35. No reason to penalize them more. Their QB was just sacked. :lol:
Just an observation. I like Charles and is definitely serviceable to pass the time until Cates gets back, but there are five six times this game where I see him on a called play up the middle but the whole right side is completely, and I mean COMPLETELY vacated by the TO D, but Charles doesn't seem to use his peripheral vision to see something beyond the called play. Something the coaces hopefully see on film and work with him on it.
