I don't think there is any doubt the Montreal Alouettes got screwed in Vancouver last week. They scored a touchdown to tie the football game only to have the play taken away because of a "clock" issue. The Alouettes are protesting the end result to the CFL and I applaud them for doing so. However, the CFL can't side with the Alouettes.
I am by no means siding with the Lions on this issue, but if the CFL calls for the end of the game to be replayed, it will be a black mark on the league. I don't care what league it is, you just can't have a do-over. It hurts the league's credibility and the league's reputation. Yes, the league is already taking a hit by having this unfortunate situation hovering above their head, but I think they would make it worse by allowing the Alouettes protest to stand. It would set a very ugly precedent.
The game is over. It didn't end the way the league, the Alouettes and dare I say it the Lions wanted it to, but its happened. Its history now and you can't change history no matter how hard you try.
