    Yup....the refs and CFL once again showing what colours they wear.

    What a bizarre last play. Greenwhites just threw away 3 points.
    Out of my mind; back in five minutes.

    It’s a garbage league. Attendance down 10,000 Eskimo fans in 2019 (10%). Expect that to increase to 10,002 next year. I’m finally fed up. And the CFL doesn’t care.

    Sorry but the CFL is bush league. Officials, TSN, commentators are absolute crap. Totally embarrassing. This NOT professional football. I'm done until next season, assuming there are serious changes.

    TSN plays a huge part in the biased officiating as well.

    There halftime shows are constantly geared towards talking about how undisciplined the Esks are. Sask is the 2nd highest penalized team and the refs ignored at least 30 yards in calls against them but not a peep about that by the CFLs overlords.

    That RTP was bad, Iíve watched it a few times and I still donít see the supposed helmet contact Dunnigan alleges occurred or the spear that was called on the field. They were good hits. Not even vicious, glancing blows more that anything.

    I've seen you complain about this for 15 years. But now you're gone?

    What are you talking about? Dunigan and Dusty pointed out numerous missed calls against the Riders. Pointing that out goes against the narrative I know, but seriously...

    CFL frustrates me so much. I love the game, but the mafia-like rigging aspects have gotten out of control. And that's saying something.

    Missed that part, my bad.

    But this whole CFL wants the Riders to win stuff is a joke. Do people have that short of memories to not remember what happened to them down the stretch last season?

    The TSN anti-Maas smear campaign out in full force as well, can't believe there's Esks fans out there who buy into that crap.

    As Glen kindly pointed out, I was referring to the halftime show. They’ve been harping on the Esks penalty issues for weeks but they never mention the Riders penalty issues, they are 8th in the league.

    That was pretty weak when someone laying a hand on you can bring you down. Too early to call for Williams?
    If you look at the horse collar we were called on the feet werenít pulled out from under the Rider player, by definition the feet need to be pulled out. The Esk grabbed a small amount of jersey between the shoulder blades (not the collar) and didnít stretch the jersey, he pulled him to the ground.

    I was being sarcastic about that being a horse collar as it was similar to the one we were called on.

    I just don't see the Esks recovering this half.

    They have no spark with Kilgore on offense.

    And the D has shown no ability to recover from adversity. And with all those calls going against them in the first half, that's the kind of adversity that causes them to lose focus.

    I’d need to have the sound turned up to get upset at TSN. I turned them off after the RTP call.

    They gave the Riders a win when the Control Centre did not make an RTP call on an interception TD that won them a game against the Eskimos. That gave them a win on an obvious RTP.

    Has the defense scored a touchdown this season?

    And cost the Esks a playoff spot.

    After the generous spot in the first half we were given a not so generous one on that run to make it third and inches.

    Kilgore is brutal and has zero points this half

    It’s as close to a nothing game as you get (for us anyways), and I would like to see if after
    Six months of learning the cfl game if Briscoe is a good an prospect

    They also lost two QBs and any chance of winning because of missed calls as well. Now I gleefully enjoyed it but it shows how blind some are to this stuff...
