I can appreciate that there are times when a player gets fined for doing something truly horrible - but this effort by the CFL to show "tough love" is over the top and totally lame. They just changed the rules to make the game more interesting - this over protection of QBs is unnecessary - a hit on the helmet or below the waist makes line men afraid to do their job - to get to the quarterback! Posting their names of those the CFL finds guilty comes across as small minded and punitive.

totally disagree.


If you can get someone like Buck Pierce to agree with you then maybe you have a valid point.
