Odds to Win 2019 Grey Cup: CFL Instant Replay trumps NFL

Odds to Win 2019 Grey Cup

The New Orleans Saints rather than the Los Angeles Rams might be the NFC representative in the 2019 Super Bowl if they were playing by Canadian Football League rules according to Reuters and Steve Keating. This reasoning is based on the rules in the CFL that allows for a challenge of pass-interference calls, or non-calls.  Odds to Win 2019 Grey Cup: CFL Instant Replay trumps NFL.

Keating wrote an interesting piece for Reuters that outline what I promise you 99 percent of National Football League fans are not aware of. And to present a picture to the readers of this Canadian Football League future, albeit blurred, the missed pass-interference call in the NFC title game this past Sunday presumably allowed the Rams to earn a 26-23 overtime win that would more likely than not, by percentages alone, gone to an extra period/quarter.

Instant Replay Rules in the CFL should be the guideline for the NFL

And rest assured the missed-call, the pass interference play and result of such will live on in infamy. Those of us who are not infomercial viewers or on-demand Ancient Alien episodes will see NFL Film and ESPN replays of the over-the-hill, typical mind you, NFL official that somehow didn’t see the interference play on Mercedes Benz Stadium field turf on Sunday. And he alone was the only individual present or watching the broadcast that missed the call.

Keating wrote “all the controversy could have been avoided if the NFL had a rule similar to the one in the CFL where since 2014 coaches have been able to challenge pass interference calls. Last season in the CFL 42 of 71 challenges were for defensive pass interference, of which 19 (48 percent) were overturned from the original call on the field.”

“The CFL introduced video review to fix egregious and indisputable calls that could affect the outcome of a game,” CFL spokesperson Lucas Barrett told Reuters in an email.

To the point of this CFL Futures article note that “the Edmonton Eskimos beat the Ottawa Redblacks in the 2015 Grey Cup (Canada’s Super Bowl) with the help of a successful pass interference challenge on what was the winning scoring drive.”
