Lining up to get called to work between 10pm and 1am tonight, so going to bed in a couple of hrs. Will have to PVR and watch my first gane of the season when I get home on Wednesday.
I guess it would be a bit much to ask that nobody talk about the game, lol, so I’m signing off til Wed morning. Good luck, Riders, though I suspect the Elk have improved more than we have and will get their home win tonight.
It was helmet to helmet contact and no one on the elks challenged or complained. I think they saw it as incidental and the rider defender was attempting to play the ball and not tackle so my guess is that’s the reason it wasn’t called
You’re probably right. I was just working on the premise that as a defender you are still responsible if you hit someone helmet to helmet. Sort of like hockey and a high stick, even if it wasn’t intentional as it didn’t appear to be here.
