Word from Farhan is that Lucky will be playing this weekend.

Probably not close to 100%, though. An ankle injury is significant for a speedy receiver like him.

He tried to play with a broken hand last year. He's got heart. We'll see if the coaches let him.

Also, is there anyway to know before who the officials will be?  In Sask. that could be a game changer.

This this this.  I was just thinking this last night.

Is there a place that lists officials for the week's games?  Or is that kept completely secret, maybe to avoid bribes 'n such?

I'm very very curious to see if SSK continues their holding ways.  Maybe they'll feel they don't need it for lowly OTT.

I know each crew is evaluated after every game and there is a pre game ?scouting? report given to the crew and the crew watches film and then gets together to do their pregame meeting. No doubt #51 and #5 are on every crew members hit list. The thing is, they are coached up well in hand placement (curled up under the armpit) and body position (receivers try and position their body to try and obstruct the officials view)

No doubt we aren?t the only ones how noticed the holding , the DL from Montreal got kicked out as he was sick of it. No doubt they are on notice this week, we ll see if it makes a difference

This is why the CFL is leaps and bounds behind the NFL.  CFL referees are part timers that just do officiating in their spare time.  They don't need to care about what their calls are cause basically no one cares and no one will hold them accountable.  So what if they get fired.. they will just lose a couple thousand dollars over the season which can easily be replaced with a better job.

From what I?ve heard, crew members get $1500 per game, and review film and reports for 3 days, then fly into whatever city they are working in, get together with their crew and individually present their positional scouting reports and then have crew discussions for the day before the game, as well as have a lengthy evaluation afterwards usually resulting in 3 days away from home. The time commitment is huge, the pay is ok, but time away from family and work is significant albeit 2 of the says are usually weekend days still it?s a strain on work and home. And crew members work their way up the junior and university ranks, so believe it or not, it?s Canada?s best on the field. The speed at which the game is played makes it very tough to get ?used to? the speed of the game vs university and with all the cameras and angles , it would be extremely tough mentally being scrutinized every play, but such is life as a ref.

It's past time the CFL put adequate funds aside to finance officiating properly, no reason they can't pay 20-30 people $40-$80k to do the job full-time, or at least full-time pro-rated on a seasonal basis.  If they did this they could attract younger, fitter candidates, seriously pursuing officiating as a career.

I know the guys from mb that are or have been in the cfl have put the time in, know their stuff and are fit. I believe there are 4 crews and a crew of standby officials so 35 people in total. Generally speaking, the refs st the top of their game all have decent jobs with pensions, but no doubt the cfl could put together a compensation package that would make it worth their while to do 18 games a year .
