Some plays are just bad luck. You have to consider that the player being hit is moving too and sometimes they unwittingly move into an unfortunate position.

Should have been 5. The helmet-on-helmet hit on Shawn Gore went unpunished. At some point, a player isn't going to get back up. Shame on the CFL for not punshing the player that delivered this hit! DISGRACEFUL.

My guess would be so that they wouldn't have to explain and make precedents. Also I'm guessing its not that much of a fine. Suspensions are big in football enough as there are less games than in other professional sports.
