If an arm is worth two games, what should a head cost?
Certainly, the CFL isn't looking at two instances involving B.C. Lions players that way, but the time is now to set a precedent.
When Lions defensive tackle Khalif Mitchell was dinged with a two-game ban earlier this year for an arm-bar attack on Eskimos offensive lineman Simeon Rottier, it sent a clear message intent to injure wouldn't be tolerated.
For that, the CFL should be applauded.
Now it's time to suspend Hamilton Tiger-Cats Dee Webb the same amount.
Webb threw his head into the back of defenceless Lions receiver Marco Iannuzzi's head last Friday in Hamilton in a move that was immediately panned by players and media alike.
Iannuzzi's head was the target, and it suffered two impacts on the play -- one from the hit and one from the ground.
This is a bright young player with an even better-looking future, so to suffer a concussion is tough to see.
It's even tougher to watch when somebody recklessly hits someone in the back of the head.
The time is now. Make it stop.
