Is TSN (or some of it's moderators) trying to ignore or hide the problem with inconsistent helmet-to-helmet calls?
Re the latest Stamps-TiCats game. I tried to post the following comment (about 3pm yesterday, Monday July 21) concerning the non-call on the obvious and intentional helmet hit to Tasker after the late failed field goal attempt yet the mods seems to have refused to post it (as of 9am today so unlikely it will appear now). Anyone see anything objectionable in the content of my post below?
"rider insider, hockeydood1, 92'stamps and others... Agree that Stamps got a "lucky" break on a roughing the QB (unintentional barely brushed helmet) penalty yet the refs somehow missed and ignored a deliberate, violent helmet-to-helmet hit on Tasker after the late field goal muff. Tasker is lucky to have escaped unharmed and a penalty could have potentially changed the outcome of the game. For the doubters or those in denial, check out the TSN game highlights video linked above (about the 1:45-1:50 mark, after all the commercials). Stamps player clearly lead with his helmet and made contact with Tasker’s face mask. Not that it matters now unless the League comes out with an after-the-game fine or suspension but doubtful."

As others have observed, it seems some questionable calls or non-calls (especially involving QBs) are being made, or not, while other obvious ones are ignored.
Consistency would be appreciated before someone gets seriously injured or worse, besides affecting the possible outcome of the game.
(I tried posting it again today about 10am but it was still "rejected" while others have since been posted. ????)
