CFL under fire after controversial replay review in Bombers win over B.C.

The end of the Winnipeg Blue Bombers win over the B.C. Lions on Saturday was mired in controversy after the CFL command centre appeared to blow a turnover call with the game in the balance.

With 35 seconds remaining in the fourth quarter and the Bombers protecting a 37-35 lead, Winnipeg running back Andrew Harris was stripped by B.C. defenders Adam Bighill and Jason Arakgi. The ruling on the field was that Harris was down by contact but the play was automatically reviewed by the command centre. The ruling: no fumble.

Social media exploded with criticism of the decision.
