The Canadian Football League has fined four players for detrimental conduct following the completion of the postseason.

Montreal Alouettes’ defensive lineman Mike Moore received a maximum fine for verbal abuse of an official. The league did not specify if this incident occurred during the East Semi-Final or East Final as the Als appeared in both games.

B.C. Lions’ offensive lineman Sukh Chungh was fined for a blindside block on Winnipeg Blue Bombers’ linebacker Malik Clements. The illegal block occurred during the West Final at IG Field, which culminated in a 28-20 victory for Winnipeg.

Toronto Argonauts’ offensive lineman Philip Blake was fined for a high hit on Montreal Alouettes’ defensive back Wesley Sutton. The hit took place during the Argonauts’ 34-27 victory in the East Final at BMO Field in Toronto.

Hamilton Tiger-Cats’ linebacker Kyle Wilson was fined for violating the league’s social media policy. The league did not specify the nature of the post for which Wilson was fined.

As per league policy, the amounts of the fines were not disclosed. The maximum fine the league can levy is the equivalent of half a player’s game cheque.
