No, this isn’t about NFL rules coming to Canada or CFL rules going stateside so don’t get all raged up now.
This is about improving the refereeing in the CFL which has been bad over the last little while. And yes it has been garbage, I actually had to turn a few games off last year as I couldn’t bear it anymore and I’m a huge fan of the CFL. Now its not all the officiating. A lot of players were lining up wrong causing many stupid calls too aaaand NFL officiating had some shaky calls too.
And I’m not alone on this, the biggest complaints the new commish of the CFL Jeffrey Orridge has received was all about officiating.
Now i’m not saying the refs aren’t trying but their has to be a better way and it looks like they have found one.
Starting this year, CFL refs will be attending NFL referee boot camps. Furthermore, it could work out that NFL refs will sometimes come up here to do some officiating. This will put pressure on refs to do better and know that they can now be replaced. Feel bad for them? don’t. Isn’t that like for many of us at our jobs.

Really this just holds everyone more accountable for their job.
