Default Re: Fair catch call..

Based on this rule, everyone should call for a fair catch, so in case the screw it up nobody can touch the ball except the returner haha. I think that this is the type of thing instant replay is for. It was painfully obviously that CI did not interfere with the punt catch, the dam ball bounced off the intended returner straight into his arms! It was only after that, and after he had the ball, that CI ran over the punt returner, otherwise he would never have touched him. Hopefully that rule will be amended. I think the refs were a little flag happy due to what happened in a few games on sunday (Ravens, Bucs, etc) where officials were being bumped around a little. They basically were making the statement to the players that they need get get a little more under control. Believe me, I about smashed my laptop watching the game I was so pissed at some of the calls. I hope the refs tone it down a little next week, and let people play.
