Starts at about 40 seconds in

By definition, getting both feet on the ground in the field of play, maintaining possession of the ball and advancing it to a point where it breaks the plane is a TD. Whether the player retains possession when he hits the ground is irrelevant.

They're very inconsistent with calls.

The rules for a ball caught in the endzone are different in that you must display control all the way to the ground unless you've made a "football move" (ie ran with the ball).

Yeah, who wants rules that make sense? Being in the end zone with possession of the ball suddenly isn't good enough.
