Roughrider fans want things to change after two quarterbacks were levelled by hits on-field referees did not call.
During Sunday’s West semi-final Brandon Bridge took a vicious hit to the head on the second last play of the game.
Two weeks earlier Zach Collaros was knocked out by a hit to the head from B.C. Lions’ Odell Willis.
Riders Head Coach Chris Jones challenged the hit on Collaros which led to a roughing the passer call but couldn’t do the same Sunday.
CFL Commissioner Randy Ambrosie joined the Green Zone Monday to address the issue and possible rule changes.
The former player said talks have already started on the possibility of allowing the command centre to call roughing the passer without a challenge.
“If we don’t get it done before the playoffs are completed then the Grey Cup is played then we absolutely have to talk about this in the offseason.”
According to Ambrosie, the conversation began Monday morning with calls to team presidents.
“It’s not just a snap of the fingers,” he said of how long changes might take. “I’m not the emperor of the league.”
Ambrosie said one focus of the talks will be the command centres role in calling plays.
There is no timeline for when possible rule changes could go into effect.
