There must be seven players on the line of scrimmage — 5 lineman and 2 ends — at the snap of the ball. Failure to comply results in an illegal procedure — no end penalty. This penalty can also be caused by a player with an ineligible number taking an end position and not reporting to the referee prior to the play as found in Article 3 of Section 5 of the Scrimmage rule.
Illegal procedure in general is the rule that covers pre-snap violations by the offence. Illegal procedure by itself usually means an offensive lineman moved prior to the snap of the ball.
This is for all the enquiries over this rule.

Arash Madani asks some very good follow up questions of commissioner Mark Cohon on the issues in a video one-on-one.

With that out of the way, let’s focus on the game and then see what shakes out in the off-season.

This is a 50% increase on Saturday (8 to 12 hours) and 66% increase on Sunday (3 to 5 hours). However, as I said last year, quantity does not guarantee quality, but it does show the CFL is back as a big sports property in this country.

The Canadian ratio (more coverage) takes the front seat after the ‘Rider performance yesterday. Hopefully, this can be put to bed soon.

Congratulations Ottawa on taking this step. The compromises of a review of every piece of the plan by a design panel and a proportional return on investment to both parties, both big sticking points for the opposition, seem reasonable and fair. Yet the opposition is not interested in a democratic compromise; their way or bust. Well, they busted.
Unfortunately, the debate will occur all over again in May before the CFL‘s franchise condition can be met with the final vote.

Great to see all the voices speaking out against this idea and especially these very visible three. There are ways to address the challenge, and coaches and GM’s should face it rather than find an easy solution.

For reference for the last post and future articles on the Collective Bargaining Agreement, I have posted links to the past two CFL CBA‘s on the new CBA page.
The Collective Agreement covers, among other things:
Of interest is Appendix “F”, Notice to Player Being Placed on Nine Game Injury List, which clearly requires a player or player representative to sign the document to acknowledge receipt of the document.

Awesome news for Hamilton. This puts them one step closer to replacing the 80-year old Ivor-Wynne Stadium. Next up is finding private funding to push the 15,000-seat track and field stadium up to CFL standards. Here is hoping the Ti-Cats can move in by 2015.

When politicians at all levels of government want something and it involves something as prevalent to the province’s psyche as the Roughriders are to Saskatchewan, it will get done no matter the cost.
