The rules say that a coach cannot challenge the ruling on the field with less than 3 minutes left in the half.
But... the very poor refereeing in the CFL allows this to happen. Not once but TWICE, both winnipeg and montreal, before the end of the half. Those replays were NOT initiated by the replay booth, both were challenges from the coaches.
sarcasm That is just some absolutely solid consistency from the refs. I'm impressed.
Secondly, not only does montreal challenge the ruling on the field when they aren't allowed, but they get denied an OBVIOUS TOUCHDOWN!
Are other people now beginning to understand that there are some serious consistency problems with the reffing/ instant replay systems this year? I've always been a supporter of the idea of instant replay in the CFL. And I know people are using the excuse "they have to work out the kinks in the system". Well, it isn't all that hard to follow the rule of not allowing challenges 3 minutes before the half! Or are the referees absolutely that brain-dead?
I know I made a poll like this earlier, but I guess this is part 2.
