Bumped

Free agency took off with a bang.
Reilly moves back to BC
Harris moves to Edmonton
Mitchell stays in Calgary, even though Toronto puts a lot on the table for him.

I hadn't watched much CFL for about a decade. Took a peek at the season opener between Saskatchewan and Hamilton. The Saskatchewan quarterback gets drilled in the head while on the ground. This league is so heavily dependent on quarterbacks with the huge field and unlimited motion leading to so much passing. Nothing like a blow to the head early in the game to get the Sask QB outta there. Why did I even think of trying to watch this league again.

Well that's two games in the books. Both great contests.

Great contests in which area of ineptness was the most inept. The play by play, the officials, the technical crew that can't seem to place the blue line of scrimmage and first down on the screen, two plays in a row.

Great start last night, as an added feature (on at least Shaw), the wrong start time. The guide showing a game start 30 minutes late. So those who recorded just the game and not the pre-game show missed 30 minutes.

The play has always been so so, but the play by play, that at times has no clue what's happening in the game, to the on field officials that would be challenged officiating a highschool football game.

I'm going to try to at least watch all the first weeks games. After that I think frustration will take over and I'll give up watching.

Suggestion,,,,,, until they can find some officials that have some idea what's going on, the teams should have unlimited challenges. However even some of the challenges result in blowen calls.

Embarrassing.

impo Simoni Lawrence should be facing both a fine & multiple game suspension.
That cra :cuss: has no place in the game... period.
Hopefully the League will step up and make this happen

Added later: especially since Zach Collaros has had concussion issues
