Too many rules are ruining the NFL!! Let the players play the game. Calvin Johnson makes a great play for a game winning TD but it is over ruled because the process of continuation. Have Calvin ran the ball in and the same thing happened....TD!!

Tuck rule was way worse. That decided the NFL champion. The Lions and Bears will likely both be out of it by December.

The very fact there are black colleges is racist against white people. It seems their racist school has had trouble filling up due to black people going to other universities(this has been stated in articles you have posted) so now black colleges are forced to be less racist, and saying hey, we don't just accept black people here you know.

If one knee equals two feet then two feet and a butt cheek have to be worth something other than an incompletion.

Can't argue with that. Let's see. RB dives over goalline and crosses plane: TD, doesn't matter if he flips the ball over his shoulder before hitting the ground. WR jumps up and catches the ball across the line, comes down with both feet, ### hits ground also, ball hits ground in hand, WR lets go...Incomplete pass. Yep that makes sense. The fact the the head of officiating was defending it makes them a joke.
'Fantasy Shark'.

One thing you can never accuse FavreCo of is that he's biased. He hates everyone equally.


"AOOGA, AOOGA, Dive market, Dive!!!"

There is no FFA poster that I have a greater love/hate relationship then Faveco. At the very least you always know where he stands.

In this case - I think he is dead on, I just wouldn't say it in a crowded room.

That was a preposterous call. If the rules really dictate that that was an incompletion, then the rules are stupid and it's another Bert Emmanuel play.

Serious question.....say that a WR makes a catch in the back of the end zone....clearly in possession of the ball, gets 2 feet inbounds. He falls out of bounds and the ball comes loose when he hits the ground.....is that not a TD anymore?

This is a rule that needs to be addressed right away. A RB can leap over a pile and lose control of the ball in mid-air, come down empty handed without touching the ground..but if he crossed the goal line it is a TD.

So a WR catches the ball with two feet in bounds (like megatron did)...why wouldn't you then cheap shot and cut his legs out? If he drops it on when he hits the ground it's incomplete...right?

By Rule, if he is contacted by a defender in the air then No that would not be a TD. If he falls on his own, then it's a TD. C. Johnson was clearly down, in my book. His knee was even down before the ball came close to the ground. after the knee hits, his hand with the ball touches the ground. In what can only be called a premature celebration, Johnson believes he just caught a game winning TD and leaves the ball on the ground to celebrate.. Dumb move on Johnson's part, but, IMO, wrong interpretation of the rule.

If a guy catches the ball in the endzone and falls to the ground, then rolls around in circles for 15 minutes, and drops it as he's standing up 15 minutes later, is that an incompletion? I think this rule says it is...

So if he has two feet inbounds and is pushed out by a defender and the ball comes loose when he hits the ground, it's not a TD? But if he falls because his momentum carries him out of bounds and the ball comes loose, it's TD? :angry:

These rules are not cut and dried. They are tricky and need to be interpreted properly. The tuck and Calvin's play today were both interpreted poorly. You people talking about a rule is a rule and the correct call was made, ignore that the rules need to be interpreted properly.

If Calvins catch was ruled a TD I do not think any Chicago fan would have even blinked or complained. It was aTD...but the continuation of the process of the catch was not complete, yet if that happened outside the end zone it would have been ruled a catch and the ground caused a fumble.

It can't be a fumble until he has possession.

If that play would have been on the first play of the fourth quarter, could Calvin Johnson have lain there on the ground, with the clock running, for fifteen minutes and gotten up with the ball after time expired?

No, the contact from the ground caused the ball to slip out of his hand.

Not by the rule: Item 1: Player Going to the Ground. If a player goes to the ground in the act of catching a pass (with or without contact by an opponent), he must maintain control of the ball after he touches the ground, whether in the field of play or the end zone. If he loses control of the ball, and the ball touches the ground before he regains control, the pass is incomplete. If he regains control prior to the ball touching the ground, the pass is complete.

Because he maintained control (possession) of the ball until it crossed the goal. Likewise if a receiver catches the ball at the one and crosses the goal line and then loses the ball it is a td. On a throw into the endzone, since the ball is in the air as it crosses the goal there is no possession until the pass is complete.

Calvin had control of the ball after he touched the ground and maintained control all the way until the ball touched the ground and he subsequently released it.

That's just it. I think he released it, not lost control. apparently the refs felt he lost control. I only saw it once but what I saw I can see how they would make that call. I could also see it going the other way. Either way I think it's a crap rule. You catch the ball and touch two feet to the ground in the endzone...td.

I think he lost control when the ball hit the ground. But the fact is he had control through both feet touching the ground, a knee touching the ground, his ### touching the ground, his other hand touching the ground. He only lost control after his catching hand hit the ground. He clearly had control of the ball 'after he touches the ground', which is exactly what the rule states. The rule was not meant to apply after possession was established with two feet down. This was more meant for a receiver diving for a ball or getting hit in the air, IMO.

He clearly had control until the ball touched the ground. That's when the rule ends. Terrible ruling both on the field and in the booth.

FTR: the knee and the ### both equal 2 feet. So thats 6 steps plus a hand.
Sarah Palin: A clown short of a circus.

“By attacking the democratically elected President of the United States of America at a sensitive time in her country’s history, Sarah Palin shows the tact of a boorish drunkard bawling obscenities at a funeral….

And now she turns not only against the fibre and backbone of her country, but against its democratically elected President, accusing him of being incompetent for not stopping Wikileaks. Where was she and where was her GOP before and during the 9/11 attacks? She accuses President Obama of not taking “steps” to assure the leaks were not published. What “steps”?……

If anything is a threat to the national security of the United States of America, it is this screaming, unrefined oaf with as much class as a searing release of flatulence followed by hysterical giggling at a state banquet. Is this what the people of the USA deserve?"

Correct. By the current definition, you need to catch it, drive home, mow your lawn, drive back to the stadium and hand it to the official maintaining possession throughout. Sounds absurd, but the above is not far from the truth. It's close to where you need to catch it, stand up and hand it to the official.

Too many rules are ruining the NFL!! Let the players play the game. Calvin Johnson makes a great play for a game winning TD but it is over ruled because the process of continuation. Have Calvin ran the ball in and the same thing happened....TD!!

I thought by now they'd have changed that rule. They got it right by the rule, but it's absurd that you can catch the ball, get two feet, a knee, a hand, a hip and an ### plus a palmed football on the ground in bounds and still not get a catch. Major, major bad rule that should've been changed a long time ago.

What part of after hitting the ground is confusing. The rule does not say after you hit the ground for the sixth time. The call was wrong by rule and facts.

Chicago Tribune Bear Fan Poll......80% say it was:

A. A catch
B. Not a catch


Reguardless, by rule the play was dead....The ump had his hands in the air signalling TD and Johnson had the ball. After that point nothing else matters.

This is a rule that needs to be addressed right away. A RB can leap over a pile and lose control of the ball in mid-air, come down empty handed without touching the ground..but if he crossed the goal line it is a TD.

Because he maintained control (possession) of the ball until it crossed the goal. Likewise if a receiver catches the ball at the one and crosses the goal line and then loses the ball it is a td. On a throw into the endzone, since the ball is in the air as it crosses the goal there is no possession until the pass is complete.


:rolleyes: This is the answer to a lot of questions/silly comments in here.

Just saw it on replay. Correct call by rule. He didn't release the ball. He lost it when he came to the ground.

Amazing that in 40 years of watching NFL football games Ive never seen anything close to this happening before today. The more i watch the replay the more i see a great TD catch! About as outrageous a call/rule that could be. QBs hold the end of the ball over the goal line when there body is yards away from it then have it slapped out of there hands and its a TD. Players can be almost five yards out of bounds flying in the air Reggie Bush style but if the end of the ball in an stretched out hand goes over the pylon its a TD all the while barely having control at all and the ball gets dropped the sec he crosses the line!...how in the world can Calvin's play not be a TD also? He caught the ball..transferred to one hand like he would had he caught it with one hand..went down and used the ball as an extension of his hand bracing himself and simply let it go out his hand..all this AFTER he caught the dam ball!..WTF is going on with that? It almost looked like he caught it twice really and then just downed himself while dropping the ball...like a spiked ball after a TD! Ya it cost me a few FF points..but had I had big multiple parley wager going with only needing Det to win outright to win big bucks id be freaking wildly and you can bet there were many who had that exact thing happen to them today..bridge jumping time for sure..someone may have done a swan dive off the stratosphere today after the BS play!! Something must be done to make sure that nonsense never happens again..change the rule..like yesterday!

I'm convinced that the league has these ridiculous rules in place in order to manipulate the scoreboard, and they need a certain level of incompetence from their officials to give them cover.

It's disgraceful.

I have felt this way ever since I saw the Pitt v. SD Game when Troy Polamalu scored a TD as time expired, as the Steelers were lining up to kick the extra point, the replay official buzzed in, called for review, they overturned the TD, and said the game was over. WTH??

In the end the Steelers won, 11-10. But the final score should have been 17-10 or -- pending an extra-point kick that never happened -- 18-10. The result was significant because Pittsburgh was favored by 4 points.

The postgame explanation by game referee Scott Green, who admitted Polamalu's touchdown was erroneously taken away from the Steelers, is sure to anger some bettors and raise concerns about the integrity of NFL officiating.

He did not lose control when he came to the ground. He lost control when he was getting up off the ground. Horrible rule. Horrible call.



Go Bears!

Miss the Murphy non-catch last year?

Murphys ball comes loose as he hits the ground. He lost control of it at the same moment his body(butt/bacl/elbow) impacted the turf.

He certainly got his feet down, but in the process of going to the ground, it jiggles free and touches the grass.

In this CJ case, it doesnt jiggle free or hit the grass as Calvins body (buttocks) hitt he ground after getting the initial two feet down. It doesnt come free even after getting another knee down or a hand down.
It comes free when he is getting up and the ball is placed/hits the ground.

Sarah Palin: A clown short of a circus.

“By attacking the democratically elected President of the United States of America at a sensitive time in her country’s history, Sarah Palin shows the tact of a boorish drunkard bawling obscenities at a funeral….

And now she turns not only against the fibre and backbone of her country, but against its democratically elected President, accusing him of being incompetent for not stopping Wikileaks. Where was she and where was her GOP before and during the 9/11 attacks? She accuses President Obama of not taking “steps” to assure the leaks were not published. What “steps”?……

If anything is a threat to the national security of the United States of America, it is this screaming, unrefined oaf with as much class as a searing release of flatulence followed by hysterical giggling at a state banquet. Is this what the people of the USA deserve?"

Similar, but this was even worst. Murphey lost the ball on the fall down. Johnson lost the ball as he was rolling to get up.
