I take it back. I guess you are allowed to suplex-slam the ref down. Look out, Andre!

Not to mention the penalty wasn't questionable in the first place they were well out of bounds before he flipped over the player. Then aftewrads he had to be pushed off the player he injured and then he went up and pushed the ref over the injured player and pile of bodies. It is sickening, I would hope if the appeal proves he was guilty that they can go well you shouldn't have been in that game so no "bonus" money for you. Play off money is considered bonus money isn't it? So it probably isn't legally binding to pay either.

I don't understand how there cannot be an immediate tribunal on his appeal.  Why any delay?  Do it tomorrow, lots of time before the GC to make a final decision, this is a no brainer, there is no doubt what was done, and what the penalty is for it. 

Any delay is a way the CFL is not wanting to upset the CFLPA, but how the CFLPA could be upset over Rose getting tossed for the GC is crazy.  I bet there isn't a player in the CFLPA, INCLUDING Rose, who thinks that a one game suspension for this act is unwarranted. 

The fact that it represents a payday that could be the equivalent of a game cheque a player making $288k / yr would get... remember, another CFLPA member would get that cheque if Rose does not.  So how does the CFLPA defend Rose in this case?  How do they justify him playing this weekend?

If I was football official I would be utterly disgusted with this system. So you can punch an official and play the next week? Wow, sickening.

I hate both teams won?t really be watching.

The league has got to act promptly, as allowing him to play in the GC is an injustice as there's no guarantee he's even in the league next year. If the league doesn't act, and he is scheduled to play, I wonder if the officials don't take the field in protest. Ambrosie has got to act in Edmonton to bring some severity to the situation. No way the guy should play nor get a cheque for the GC game.

so would I. No way do you stand by and allow this level of physical abuse to happen and let the guy play because of a loophole. Ambrosie had better act promptly and ensure justice is served and he doesn't play in the GC.

Ambrosie's statement on TSN last night was weak. You can't touch an official, but we don't want players out of the Grey Cup game. Some Ottawa players are defending his actions.

There is ZERO defense. Players just don't want to see a starter not playing and a big GC game check win or lose.

As for the Rose situation... Ambrosie prides himself on being proactive. This would be a great time to speed up the appeal process while everyone is already in Edmonton anyway. Make the final decision on Saturday.

Exactly this! Pretty bush league if a player is allowed to play after what he did to the referee.

The official was on the ground because he was pushed by Rose.  Pretty clear in the video.  Whether the official was tripped or not in the process doesn't matter.  You can't put your hands on an official.

Geez... Ambrosie is showing himself to be a proverbial tower of jello.

Which way is the wind blowing, Commissioner Windsock?
