Ticats DB Will Hill grabs official, gets ejected

First-year Hamilton defensive back Will Hill had his frustrations boil over in Saskatchewan.

In the third quarter Hill grabbed a referee and that got him kicked out of the game.

You can bet the league office will be looking into the incident.

    Hamilton is getting a bad reputation between this and Austin’s incident last year . The ref’s have a brotherhood. they will remember this stuff. Those 50/50 calls may not ne working out for Hamilton.

    • It goes back to the Grey Cup that Hamilton won but was awarded to Calgary by the officials.

        Wrong my friend. No one thinks that but Ticats fans
        #1cup in 30 years

        • Oil money paid for the Edmonton and Calgary success in the west.It was about money…follow the money as they say!

            And Hamilton could just as easily bribe the refs with the transfer money Alberta sends you

          • Other way around buddy. Southern Ontario has the federal government in their back pocket.

          No one disagreed where I was sitting at that GC – perfect view, mixed CFL fans

      • LOL

        There were another 4 uncalled illegal blocks.

        Hamilton didn’t come close to winning that game, didn’t deserve to win that game and was far from screwed by the refs in that game.

          What happened to the double digit margin of victory that some Stamp fans were predicting?

          I don’t recall what the TSN panel predicted but they did run a segment questioning whether *any* Eastern team end up with a small difference.

          If they “weren’t close” – why didn’t Calgary just let them score a meaningless TD, while they celebrated their huge margin of victory?

          You can argue the last five minutes for penalties/no penalties all you want but for it to “not be close”, Calgary should have been able to give up a TD without worrying about it with less than a minute left.

    • The action pictures clearly show the culprits. Well done 3downnation.

  2. Not condoning this at all but you could see it coming with a string of calls. The one for roughing on Stephens was a head shaker? Again there is no excuse to grab a ref but these guys really did a interesting job tonight.

  3. 2018 will be a good draft year – not a bad time to have the #1 pick.

    HE GONE!!!!

  5. Will Hill is probably too good to release but he will face some league and team discipline and may be suspended.

    I remember when Delvin Breaux started early in his career with Hamilton, he took a number of bad penalties. There were some who wanted him run out of town.

    By the time he left for the NFL, he became one of the top shutdown DBs in this league.

    This was something that Hill should NOT have done last night. Coaching and discipline,though, should correct this.

    At the same time CFL fans, players and coaches have had to tolerate blind, favouring officials for way too many seasons. Horrible review incompetents like Harbin have been allowed to stick around while creating unwatchable, predictable results like the WWE.

    And the league wonders why ticket sales are down!!??

    Little surprise from me.

  7. Usually after winning a cup a team has a slump,as we can see here with the Cats.

  8. What cup did they win ?

  9. Daywalker // July 9, 2017 at 11:57 am //

    Get your cheque book out Hill!

  10. Will Hill is a legit beast. But serious discipline issues- character, not lack of talent is why he is no longer in the NFL.

  11. Enjoyed watching Stampeders lose in last years grey cup and watching their loser fans after the game act like idiots.

    • Proudnewcandian // July 9, 2017 at 11:28 pm //

      how catty!
      last night still stings a little.
      whos the next coach and GM be??

  12. Hey Sal, you guys dominated the whole season last year and couldn’t beat Ottawa. Now that is pretty sad if you ask me.

  13. Sorry Sal, we’re on the same page lol

  14. Awesome job by Hill.

    It’s about time that these players started holding officials accountable for the disgusting actions.

    The refs were actively ensuring the Riders would win that game last night and were the only reason the Riders did win.

    Refs are ruining the CFL hopefully we see more of this going forward from the players.

  15. Somebody has to grab the REFS BY THE SHIRT and SHAKE THEM UP for the bad calls that are taking place. The league office certainly does not seem willing or able to do so. WILL will climb the HILL to get this point across to the point it will cost him $$$ in fines or his job in doing so.

    This has nothing to do with the officials. This has to do with a team with a head coach who has no ability to control his emotions. This is about a terrible team that needs someone or something to blame. If we want to agree that the officials in the CFL leave a lot to be desired that’s fine. But don’t tell me the Ticats (and I am a fan) are the only ones getting bad calls. Everyone gets them, but NO other team in the league does this. Hamilton’s/Austin’s reputation for abusing officials are well earned, does anyone really think this will make it better? This is a terrible team, that got their butt kicked last night by another terrible team. Kent Austin is poison, his attitude is poison and the players are now acting like their mentor. (Don’t believe me, watch how ignorant he is to the press, that ask him simple questions). He is an abject failure. He inherited a good team that he took to the Grey Cup twice, he won another with a team he inherited. This is now his team, his real lack of competence is showing.

      “This has nothing to do with the officials. This has to do with a team with a head coach who has no ability to control his emotions.”

      Indeed. That position is like raising kids. You can tell them to do something but they’ll react more to what they see you do. Austin has had control issues of his own in the past so when he tells them to behave a certain way, it doesn’t have a lot of credibility behind it.

  17. Refs deserve more of a beating than that.
