Did anyone else catch this tidbit from TSN that the league has released seven officials from working games this year. The season started with 42 officials to make up 6 teams of 7 zebras and has gone down to 35. This is very good news as the quality of officiating has been very inconsistent this year and it sends a message that performance evaluations are not just lip service. I hope the remaining 35 don't over-react and start dropping flags like a NASCAR race, but maybe they'll pay a little closer attention when somebody grabs a jersey that allows someone to score a TD.
Good move by the league. Hopefully fans and viewers will notice the improvement :thup:
It’s don’t think these officials were demoted for unsatisfactory work,
I believe their July and August CFL work was part of their training, cager.
They will continue getting experience in University and amateur football.
Someone had more details on this in a recent post.
Sometimes an individual official is demoted.
