A cruel way to lose a million dollars for a fan...

13 posts in this topic

There is a contest for each game up here in the CFL put on by a large grocery chain where a fan is chosen at the start of the game, if one kick off is returned for a td they get a $25,000 tv package.  If a second kick off is returned for a td they get 1 million dollars.

Well it happened last night, except with the return guy in the clear going for the 2nd td a team mate bumped a defender in the back about 15 yards back up field.  Penalty flag goes down, no td, no 1 million dollars.

Most people agree that the call was totally awful and the epitome of ticky tacky.

How much did the ref get from Safeway/Sobey for that call? 

Hey the conspiracy theories are coming in doves up here.  However I think it is simply good old awful reffing.

The defender literally threw himself in front of #84 and took out his legs and #84 is penalized?!!?!?!?

Well least we know the former NFL replacement refs are alive, well and still suck.

Is there any way to watch it free?  When are the games on?  I'm a CFL newbie.

I thought this was going to say they bought a luxury box to watch Jets games

Those refs work for the CFL, they probably needed that call to stay afloat for the fiscal year. A 1 million dollar give away? Nobody does that.
