Ticats’ Austin says he doesn’t recall bumping Stala


Hamilton head coach Kent Austin says he doesn’t remember bumping into Argo receiver – and former Ticat – Dave Stala on the sidelines late in Hamilton’s win on Friday.

“Me putting my shoulder into Dave, when was that?” Austin said after the game. “I don’t know. I’m up and down the sideline, my head’s in the game, I’m emotional… you’d have to show me that play.”

TV replays appeared to show Austin making contact with Stala – who played for Austin in 2013 – along the Hamilton sideline after a Toronto punt. Should the CFL determine that Austin acted intentionally, he could be facing supplementary discipline. Austin didn’t want to speculate on what the league might do.

“I don’t know. If they do, they do. We’ll have to take a look at it,” said Austin. “I don’t have any issue with Dave, I love Dave.”
