That was a horrible challenge by Trestman, it's like he forgot he only got 1 challenge per game.

I thought the referees did a good job calling the game. They missed some but they are not perfect so I am okay with it.
Let's wait for the next few games though. Wally, Austin, Jones and even Campbell likes to throw those challenge flags.
I wouldn't mind it if they awarded an extra challenge if you win your first one. They just need to get rid of illegal contact as a challengable play!

So there was a point I believe late in the 3rd quarter where the Argos were down 24 (I think) and they lined up for a FG on 3rd and 5. I couldn't believe it. They made the 3 points and proceeded to lose the game badly.

What a terrible decision and awful message to send your team at that point in the game. You need TD's and you're 3rd and 5 in the CFL? You go for it!! 3 points doesn't do anything for you or your team's confidence.

If I was an Argo's fan I'd shut it down for the season after that and say to myself, "Well, at least NFL preseason starts next week!".

Argos fans did shut it down for the season, years ago.
