So Dwight Anderson's late, blindsided helmet to helmet hit on Carlton Mitchell isn't fine worthy?

Yet no fine or repercussions against Stamps Brandon Stewart for his helmet-to-helmet hit on TiCats Tasker after the flubbed late field goal attempt.

It seems after 4 such recent uncalled hits against TiCat players, 3 of whom suffered concussions, it's open season on Cats.

The League is quickly losing credibility re being serious about helmet hits due to inconsistency with calls on the field and remedial actions, or lack of, off the field. :(

I agree completely. Time for the officials to start calling the obvious shots and leaving the totally incidental ones (penalty on Reed e.g.) unflagged.

My mistake... Stamps player was #28, Brandon SMITH

As to the Khreem Smith antics prior to the Mtl/BC game, GOOD! That kind of crap is for the bush leagues.
