Hamilton Tiger-Cats wide receiver Brandon Banks is upset over a fine he was hit with for “making unnecessary contact on an on-field official” during his team’s win over the Calgary Stampeders back on Saturday.

Banks was hit with a 10-yard objectionable conduct penalty during the questionable play, which took place during the third quarter of play.

Banks, who was named a top performer for his performance, hauled in 9 receptions for 86 yards and two touchdown. Banks also returned a missed field goal for a touchdown.

Banks responded to the fine on Twitter, directing his message to CFL Commissioner Randy Ambrose.

“This is bull—- @RandyAmbrosie! I want U to review this type and I want a personal meeting with u about this one I not letting this one slide by easy!!”

Stampeders’ Bo Levi Mitchell Ruled Out

Calgary Stampeders quarterback Bo Levi Mitchell has been ruled out for Week 9’s game against the Winnipeg Blue Bombers on Thursday.

Mitchell was able to return to practice on Tuesday, and was able to make a number of throws at various distances and lengths, but the team ultimately decided that he was not ready for action just yet.

Stampeders head coach Dave Dickenson had left the door open for Mitchell to dress against Winnipeg, but now he is not going to dress for the game either.

Mitchell, for his part, is remaining upbeat about his injured shoulder.

“It felt great” Mitchell said on Tuesday, according to TSN. “I didn’t really want to take the helmet off…overall, I felt pretty good.

“That’s Dave (Dickenson’s) decision. Dave and Huf (GM John Hufnagel) – let those guys decide.”

Mitchell will now set his sights on Week 10, where he could return as the team takes on the Montreal Alouettes at home.
