Default Re: Bottlegate in Cleveland: Officials pelted after worst call in NFL history

If they let it play on Jags fans would be claiming they got screwed because the officials didn't review a non-catch.

Well, if Jags fans existed.

I'd feel worse for Browns fans if it was actually a catch and they reversed it, or if it was "inconclusive" and they reversed it anyway. But the fact that the guy didn't catch it? The outcome of the game ended the way that it should have. Ball don't lie!

BS.

You can't go back two plays and review a play. Period. It doesn't matter the validity of the review. Maybe the Browns got screwed by a call in the second quarter that had an impact on the final score? Should those guys have reviewed that, as well, while they were at it? Since they were throwing out the most important rule of the replay system, why not make sure that every play in the game was called correctly?

There is a reason that rule is in place. Those officials broke literally the biggest rule of what was, at the time, a new replay system.



And, that was a very close play. He was juggling the ball, but it is tough to tell whether or not it ever touched the ground. He had it pinned to his leg as he rolled over. You also have to remember that possession rules were A LOT less strict 10 years ago than they are today. Nowadays, a guy can catch a ball, take a step, get tackled, and if the ball comes out at the very end of the tackle, it is an incompletion.

In 2001, if a guy caught a ball and took a couple of steps with it, it was a catch regardless of what happened as he was being tackled.

See if the fans didn't start doing that shit they'd have had an extra 48 seconds.

But my philosophy is this. In basketball always since there's such a high volume of plays, but football adheres to this too...

If you were better on that day you wouldn't have been in that situation. I understand that I am a bit of an outlier in this thought process, and I joke about Ginobili fouling Dirk for no good reason or... Jeremy Giambi NOT SLIDING but I also know that if those guys had taken care of business earlier in those games/series then it would have been a moot point. I can't be angry at one play like 99% of the time and this one doesn't fall into that 1%.

Cleveland fans = testy

I'm speaking from experiences I've had there several times. The folks there are so defensive about there teams beyond belief. For instance, one time I told my cousin that then coach Romeo Crennel isn't going to last long and he went into a big ass tirade and started rambling about The Drive, Albert Belle and a lot of other shit I had no interest in. It was funny and depressing at the same time. He's still like that, as are other fans there I hung out with.
