What's a Labour Day classic without an incident involving an unruly fan.

It resurfaced Monday during the Argos' 34-31 win over the Hamilton Tiger-Cats at Ivor Wynne Stadium when a fan tossed beer at Toronto's Dominique Dorsey in the fourth quarter.

Argos head coach Rich Stubler was so enraged at the incident that he notified the CFL yesterday, demanding the Ticats organization be fined.

"Let's put some teeth into something,'' Stubler said. "We take a lot of abuse there.

"You have to draw a line in the sand. You can't throw stuff at players on the field."

BANNED

On-site police escorted the fan out of the stadium. The Ticats have banned him.

Stubler believed Dorsey was hit in the back of his helmet by a water balloon containing beer.

A few years ago, Bashir Levingston was suspended one game by the CFL for throwing his helmet into the crowd after being spat on by a Ticats fan.

Five days later in a rematch, a patron at Rogers Centre threw something at Hamilton offensive tackle Jonta Woodard as he left the field.
