41K people went to the game. Some of them wouldn't have appreciated the non call.

Does the league not have any responsibility to explain such a ruling to the fans either in attendance or on TV. The NHL does this (albeit not very well) so its time for the CFL to dig deep, eat some humble pie and apologize to the fans, the team, and everybody impacted and endeavor to do better and look for changes in procedure to do better.

The whole trouble with bad officiating is it leaves the hollow ring that what the teams do on the field, and how well they prepare, doesn't matter. That often, an arbitrary decision or non decision will effect the outcome.

The Eskimos got jobbed, absolutely and the Riders who sure don't need it have been laughing all the way to win column.

Finally, the Esks have been jobbed several times this year. Maybe some awareness of that as well could be good..


Failing to do this only serves that the league is a complete joke and none of us should bother caring about it.
