PR: One Game Suspension For Riders Williams, Maximum Fine For Argos Richardson

TORONTO (July 20, 2022) – The Canadian Football League has imposed player discipline in the wake of an altercation prior to last Saturday’s Touchdown Atlantic:

Saskatchewan Roughrider receiver D’haquille Williams faces a one-game suspension after he ripped off an opponent’s helmet and threw it at him.

Toronto Argonaut defensive back Shaquille Richardson faces the league’s maximum fine (half a game cheque) for initiating a confrontation with Williams when he crossed into Saskatchewan’s territory during pre-game warm-ups. He also later punched Williams during the game.

“Such pre-game hostilities are unacceptable and the use of a helmet as a weapon is especially dangerous,” said CFL Commissioner Randy Ambrosie. “Neither is to be tolerated.”

Toronto Argonaut defensive lineman Eli Mencer faces a one game suspension for derogatory language towards an official during the same game.
