    The CFL has fined DD for the comments he made on air to the refs about F..ing Canadian Mafia! Lol. Is the CFL running short on money? You would think if it was serious enough to fine the guy, it would have been serious enough for a penalty in the game, no?

    Whether it’s CFL or NFL refs are still refs.

    I think the problem is probably the reaction to the redacted sound stream that was broadcast. The broadcast only had F*cking Canadians, and that has rubbed many, many people the wrong way. I was taken aback when I heard it at first as well, until the entire mafia part was later explained. I am not sure the CFL had any real choice based on the ire it raised. Should people be that sensitive? I don't know, but I do know there was an uproar in Calgary when Jones was overheard telling Dickenson to 'Win with Class'.
