Default Re: Fair catch call..

After he waves for a fair catch it is not considered a muff/fumble until it hits the ground... this protects the returner from getting clobbered or interfered with if he slightly bobbles it.

Instead of making it a gray area, or a judgement call they just say you can't touch the ball or the returner until the ball hits the ground. I understand why the rule is there, but on this play it seemed a bit unreasonable.
