CFL SUSPENDS ARGOS’ WYNN ONE GAME


TORONTO (July 14, 2018) – The Canadian Football League (CFL) announced that Toronto Argonauts defensive lineman Dylan Wynn has been suspended for one-game, effective immediately.

The discipline is in response to a play in the fourth quarter where Wynn hit Edmonton Eskimos running back C.J. Gable.  In making this hit, Wynn used his helmet to deliver a late and direct blow to Gable’s head in a reckless manner while the player was on the ground and in a vulnerable position. The discipline was issued today after CFL Commissioner Randy Ambrosie held a telephone hearing with Wynn and representatives of the Canadian Football League Players’ Association (CFLPA).

“We will continue to be vigilant and thorough when it comes to player safety and a hit like this is not acceptable in our game,” said CFL Commissioner Randy Ambrosie. “These types of hits needlessly expose players to risk of injury and we must to continue to work together to ensure we are making the game as safe as possible."

I honestly thought this ugly intentional spearing to the head late hit. Late to the point Gable was already on the ground and dazed by the 1st accidental helmet to helmet hit. It reminded me of a boxing match my boyfriend (now husband) took me to see almost 20 years ago. A fighter was punched in the head. He was totally dazed and went down on his knees. He was in a corner and the ropes held him up. Before the referee could protect him. The opponent cranked him again in the forehead. It was ugly and so was this hit.
I know if this was one of our RBs Rider Nation would be calling for a longer suspension.
