Mike Bradley feels the officials robbed the Edmonton Eskimos.

With the Green and Gold trying to kickstart their stagnant offence in the third quarter, the coaching staff tried a fake punt for the first time this year. But Bradley failed to scamper for the first down off of the direct snap, missing by mere inches.

"I am not afraid to say I think we got a bad spot (from the officials)," he remarked. "I have already talked to people back home (in Ontario) and everybody on CBC seems to think we got (the first down).

"I thought I had it, but I saw the official come in and move (the ball) back a little bit from where I think it should have been."

A first down would have given the Esks the ball near midfield, trailing by four points.
