I really wish TSN would put a dedicated camera on the game clock instead of having their own clock on the screen. Every season this gets brought up at least once. The TSN clock is NOT the official game clock. If TSN stops their clock too soon they start it up early to catch up with the game clock. If they stop their clock too late they keep it stopped until the game clock catches up.
In the last three minutes of each half, the clock stops at the end of every play. If the ball goes out of bounds, there's an incomplete pass, or there's an accepted penalty, the clock starts again at the next snap of the ball; otherwise, the clock starts again when the next play is whistled in.
In this case, there were 12 seconds left at the end of the play (not the 19 shown on TSN's on-screen clock). When the next play was whistled in, Edmonton was not ready, and Reilly wasted most of those 12 seconds calling the play, and the clock ran out before the end of the play.
First the play should have been reviewed like other close plays in this game. Esks thought it would be. BUT with 5 seconds left Reilly could have spike the ball and time would have stop as per a incomplete pass. Gone back to the huddle and got a full play. Esk should have won game.
Another point. Clock DOES stop in last 3 minutes to spot the ball, then whistled back in to start clock. In NFL clock doesn't stop.
