Muecke played with some great quarterbacks (Clements, Huffnagel, Dewalt, Salisbury in Winnipeg, Ham and Allen in Edmonton) but was never in the right place, right time to get a team for his own. My condolences to the Muecke family.

It will be interesting to see if only the knowledge of NFL officials working early games will result in fans rating the officiating higher as a result despite what metrics might say, and complaining more loudly from August through November about the state of officiating.

A substantial revamp of the policy. Unfortunately, without an agreement to revise this policy annually outside of the CBA negotiations, it will likely not evolve, but jump substantially every 5+ years after being outdated. The changes create a working policy for the CFL, but they are not the leaders that they need to be.

My best summary of the rule changes accepted for 2016:
That is 9 of 10, I don’t know what the 10th is though I expect the additional challengeable penalties are considered two separate changes, though the rejected change was not mentioned in the committee recommendations press release either, so there may be a small, wording change not documented. The rejected proposal was for the limits for downfield blocking by offensive linemen on passing plays and has been sent for more analysis and further consideration next year.
