What is with the CFL Ref's and the lousy NO Calls on the helmet to helmet hitting on Quinton Porter last night, they finally made one call late in the game, a costly one for Calgary but missed two other helmet hits earlier and one when Porter was sliding down to try and get the first down, it was so obvious with the ref standing right there, Hughes the defender for Calgary was trying to take Porters head off, come on CFL Refs you must make all the calls, not just when you feel like it. Even Porter was amazed, he thought for sure the flag would come out, especially when it was a helmet to helmet illegal hit. What really makes me mad as heck about the direct contact helmet to helmet hit's is that they are very dangerous and could easily end a players career and especially someone so young and talented as Quinton Porter.
I'm sure that the Refs flag would have been flying if one of our defenders was using his helmet as a weapon to hit Henry Burris, we would probably see three or four flags flying. Maybe the flag was glued in the ref's pocket or something or maybe Hughes the Calgary defender was actually sending a message to our Tiger-Cat defenders for the next game in Calgary in a few weeks, that it's okay to hit our QB with the helmet so now our defenders can now put down the HAMMER and Rip off the head of Burris and side line him for the balance of the season, sounds good, if that's the game you wish to play???
Also, the first TD pass by Porter to I believe Currie, the defender was all over him and not looking back at the ball, once again another missed call, on a similar play Tisdale had his hand on the back of the Calgary receiver but looking back at the ball, a far less of an infraction than the no call on the Calgary defender and of course Tisdale and Hamilton gets called for interference, crappy ref call, crap and more crap. Glen Suitor of TSN also said in fairness both players should have been called not just Tisdale, but that's our lousy CFL refs.
Let's see our QB's get the protection they deserve and end the Helmet to Helmet hits especially in the upcoming game against Montreal, they are another team that love to hit head on with the helmet especially guys like chip cox, Mark Estelle and so on, they play that way and majority of the time get away with it but when we do it, we get called, you watch If Montreal play like that and our defenders Hammer AC the same way, you would really see the flags fly. Come On CFL refs, let the players play but call the rough stuff and not so lop sided, a level playing field would be nice for a change.
