Players rack up another three fines (two for Week 12, one for Week 11) for on-field infractions.
Earlier in the week, Hamilton coach Kent Austin received a swift fine for bumping Argo Dave Stala on the sidelines in Friday’s game. Austin issued an apology, but the fine was still rightly handed down. The CFLPA expressed its disappointment with the amount of the fine.
Austin is an excellent coach, but seems to carry a bigger chip on his shoulders and a win at all costs edge with every game and season. Hard for a coach to preach discipline to his players when he performs such an act in a non-emotional situation (not an emotional play or retaliation for a grievous foul, but the initiator of a situation). A simple unprofessional act by someone who is a professional.
