SportsFilter: The Friday Huddle:

A place to discuss the sports stories that aren't making news, share links that aren't quite front-page material, and diagram plays on your hand. Remember to count to five Mississippi before commenting in anger.

The Ottawa Redblacks just lost a two-point conversion because a ref signaled that it was good.

Replay showed their running back fumbled right before crossing the line. Even though Ottawa recovered the ball, the ref's upraised hands made it a dead ball before that happened.

After the nonsense ending to the MEX-PAN Gold Cup semi-final, Concacaf did the obvious thing: Penedo banned for pushing official, team fined. But "The confederation takes these claims extremely seriously and will look into them immediately" though not seriously enough to do something meaningful such as awarding the game to Panama.
