What the F is a tourist hit.

Hit him so hard he knocked him into la la land?

What is and "aggressive tourist hit"? I went to cfl.ca to look it up and found the 2013 rule book (might want to pass that one on to get updated). I admittedly never played football and have learned quite a bit about the game over the past number of years. This one's new to me though.

Aggressive tourist hit -

Winnipeg can’t sell their grey cup out, so to aggressively recover money owed to the league to buy the game, they fine one randomly chosen opposing team player to that equals 5 front row tickets.

Every week they have the 3 top players of the week and now, it seems, that they do 3 fines each week too. We should have a poll on who is going to get fined each week. Tourist hit!!!! Sounds like they made that one up just for laughs.

I didn't think Marshay Green hit anybody in that game. Maybe 'tourist hit' means to fly by.
