The Scratching Post is reporting that the league has fined Bob Young ten large for criticizing a particular offside call in last week's Hamilton Toronto game at Dead Ted's Dome:
At issue is a fourth quarter offside call against the Ticats which
gave Toronto a second chance after Hamilton stopped them on
third-and-short near the Ticat goal line. But Hamilton was flagged for
offside and the Argos used their second chance to score the winning
points in a 26-24 victory.
“The biggest 'controversy' is not so much the call itself, but is the
Toronto GM coaching the sideline judge during the play. The result was
the official called a very marginal penalty,” Young wrote. “At the very
least there should have been two penalties. The other for objectionable
conduct to Toronto for their GM's blatant and successful attempt to
influence an official on the field.”
I remember some calls against the Cats in that quarter, but I'm not sure exactly which one this referred to. I do remember Plesius being called for offside, but I'm thought that one wasn't on third down. Certainly was an important call in determining how the game turned out. Also pretty weird that Barker was down there right on the sideline.
