On a Saskatchewan radio show, Tom Higgins did state that the review officials completely messed up the call, that the fumble should have been overturned, and the ball given back to the Eskimos.

So, there is some accountability there.

What is more embarrassing is a website like riderfans.com, where the large majority don't know the rules, thinks this was a clean play, and is starting a collection to pay off Weldon Brown's fine.

Riderfans.com is the calgarypuck of football ...
