Massive Block In CFL Game [VIDEO]
Based on principle, you have to watch this video of a CFL player getting absolutely de-cleated. The player that gets obliterated literally goes head-over-heels.
This is one of the biggest hits that I've ever seen. Montreal Alouettes safety Kyries Hebert blocked Hamilton Tiger-Cats wide receiver Onrea Jones following an interception on Thursday night. Montreal went on to win the game 31-29.
By the way, why does the NFL crack down on "defenseless receivers" getting hit when they're trying to catch a pass, but not penalize players for obliterating "defenseless receivers" following an interception? It's something that the NFL is supposed to be implementing this season.
Look, I love the big hits. I wouldn't want to see this huge hit in a CFL game be outlawed in the NFL just because an unsuspecting player didn't have his head on a swivel. However, the NFL is being incredibly inconsistent if they crack down in one facet but, don't do anything in another strikingly similar facet.
