Default Re: new rule instituted in NFL???

I was thinking the same thing.

I'll give the refs the NYG game, because JPP hit BB's arm... and it was tough to tell in regular speed. (Although, they should have gotten it right in slow-mo.) But, in the KC game, no one hit Leftwich's arm... his arm went forward... and the ball went forward. Even I could see that... at REGULAR speed (let alone slow-mo).

As soon as Houston started running it back, I thought: "Here we go again: another FREE TD for an opponent."

I don't like to think of the game as being fixed, but it seems like the refs are erring on the side of "giving the opponent a turnover" as opposed to (as OX stated) calling what they actually see.
