Hated how defense made BC look good. Overjoyed with backup Evans engineering win. Quite a night here.

B.C. does have talent on O - they just started getting some actual OL play. Your lack of run stopping is a concern.

Hamilton is very lucky there wasn’t lightning in the area as they needed the 4th quarter to score 16 points to win that game. 

This only highlights what a colossal mistake it was to end a game in the 3rd quarter in a tight football game, in the anything-can-happen CFL.

Brutal miss by the refs..................almost as bad as the spot the argo's got against us last game of a first down that wasn't ......Totally inept officiating when calls like this are made or totally missed...In any event what a pasting Reilly took but continued with his heroics...Call it dumb pride but there's no way he should have finished that game with a healthy O'Brian waiting in the wings...How much did the leos' give Reilly to sign on??.....It will be going up in a puff of smoke if their coach doesn't smarten up......and quit sticking his tongue out...All Claybrooks needs to do is turn his cap sideways while doing the tongue thing...What an image of intelligence that presents////LOL

All year the returns have been getting a free ride.  Coaches are going to have to start throwing challenge flags on punt returns. Scoring plays are reviewed so how are they missing this crap.  Obviously the word came down that they want more scoring

The Alouettes players had to get going to their bouncer jobs. Don't call the game you don't have a door guy at Chez Paree.

The issue is that the scoring play is reviewable, but a coach can only challenge for illegal block penalties if they're called. Teams receiving the ball have an inherent advantage, since receiving coaches can challenge a phantom illegal block penalty (to have it removed), but the kicking team can't challenge for a missed illegal block penalty that should've been called.

What a nightmare KR blocking challenges would be...  fishing expedition on every big return...

I like the big play returns this year - glad the refs have lightened up even if its a blown call here and there - way better than it was

C’mon man - what he said is exactly correct. 

Is there not a hold somewhere on the field every play..... and after reading his posts on riderfans about the fans here I really don't care what he has to say.

Grow up.  If that return happened against you guys last night you would be losing it.  This cannot continue, it is making the league look really bad. This league has struggled to shake the bush league appearance ever since I have watched it. A team lost a grey cup a couple years ago on a illegal block call. Now we just aren't going to call it at all??  Just let it be a freeforall out there.  That head shot on Adams last week against Ottawa is another one, this crap needs to end

Ripper made a great point about the holding on returns and on the headshot.

I love the big returns and as Dickenson apparently said, I think we're seeing more this year because the NFL is kind of phasing out the kick game so we're getting more of those type of guys and that's great but you have to make the calls.

Sure... there will definitely be some cases where coaches may burn a challenge to calm things down. You can almost always find a holding or illegal block on most kick return plays... personally, I think it'd be best if they did it for a specific player, similar to how pass interference is called.

I just find it interesting that even the rule book itself is stacked against coverage teams like that, puts them at a big disadvantage when there is a missed call.
