Canadian Football League Screws Up Big Time

Wow did Tom Higgins make a huge mess that could lead to a serious incident on Saturday.
Higgins for some reason elected not to protect the league's QB by only giving a fine for
the helmet-to-helmet hit on Kevin Glenn.

He basically announced it is open season on the league Quarterbacks. The Bombers have
already fired the first shot at a potential helmet-to-helmet hit of their own.

Bombers President Lyle Bauer stated that the leagues action only somewhat address
the hit. He also stated that he hopes that the decision made by the league today will
not lead to more hits.

We can't speak for Mr. Bauer but reading between the lines it sure sounds like the
Bombers might be coming after the Eskimos in the re-match.

If the Bombers go after Ricky Ray in a eye for eye case and tooth for a tooth case,
Tom Higgins will be the one responsible for not stopping this early with a suspension.

Action needed to take place. When one team tries to take the other teams star player out
so he can't play in the following weeks rematch, the league has to put a stop to it.
The quarterbacks are the stars of the league and need to be protected.

This sets up for one heck of a rematch on Saturday. Will the Bombers go after Ray
or will they focus on playing football and trying to secure a playoff spot? Let's hope
nothing occurs. This might not end this week either. The Eskimos could end up
playing the Bombers in the cross over playoff game. If the Eskimos were blowing
out the Bombers, who is to say the Bombers won't seek revenge knowing that the
season is coming to a end for them. If anything occurs it will be all on Tom Higgins
