I know the time-keeping in BC is notoriously, er, unique, but I've been wondering about something late in last night's game.
Twice while BC had the ball in the last 3 minutes they completed passes and the player ran out of bounds. Yet, according to the TSN on-screen clock, on both occasions the clock started when the ref wound the play clock.
Now I know the TSN clock is not official, but if they started it wrong on that play, they just fix it for the next...that never happened on either occasion, so I assume it more or less jived with the official time clock.
Is this a rule change, because it has always been that inside of 3 minutes of each half, a play ending out of bounds meant the game clock for the next play started on the snap. That's why players tried to get out of bounds.
Did anyone else notice this?
