Hamilton continues a clean slate at Investors Group Field with the Tabbies 52 – 26 over the Big Blue and Gold. The home of the Winnipeg Blue Bombers has not been kind having won only 4 of 19 games on their home turf.Hamilton so dominated Winnipeg that they scored the most points in a half over the last 23 years.New rules or not, Brandon Banks is proving to be unstoppable and prolific in his ability to run back kicks for TDs at will.    Quarterbacks need more protection, from the common threat and effect of the accidental hit.  CFL needs their stars to sell the game, they are central to hope for teams every quarter, every half, every game, every week, every season.Last year’s Lions, Riders, etc. fans learned first hand leaving their stadiums or turning off their TVs after a game left them with a sick sinking feeling, and worse, no hope.

Crushing, not exciting defeats, a steady diet leaving Rider Pride and Orange Crush with only “wait till next year way too soon”.It is easy to blame individual players who cause injury. Players are trained early and every practice gets all or at least a piece of the QB. Defenders jobs rely on playing within the rules of the game established by the CFL Head Office instructed officials. The team may not promote the injuring of QBs outright and publicly but the fact is being physical intimidating is crucial in defensive relationship with QBs.QBs are trying to perform tasks that make them vulnerable.  How vulnerable they will continue to be is a League Decision, the Ball is the courts of Mr. Orridge or the GMs swayed Governors.The Future Health of the game may be at stake, something the new rules are a an attempt to address, the offensive game concern in and about the CFL.
