I understand its a 8 team league where 6 teams make the playoffs, so winning and losing really doesn't matter very much until the playoffs...but you have to strike while the irons hot.
If you can challenge and play and take away a 40 yard gain which eventually leads to a touchdown, you do it.
I coach high school sports and I pride myself on making quality decisions under pressure.
The Tiger Cats coach likely lost a lot of respect tonight in the coaching world and I wouldn't be surprised if he is getting chewed out right now by someone high up within the Tiger Cats organization.
Unacceptable judgement on the coaches part which essentially cost their team this game.
