Default Re: Ref explains call... and it makes sense.

I agree, it's a dumb rule as well. I am not in favour of anything in which involves the refs discretion. The whole idea of making a football move is subjective to each ref interpretation to begin with. But it is what it is for now.

Hmmm....What about all the tip-toe catches on the sidelines. Do they not count on the assumption that a toe is not a whole foot ?

Regardles of how the calls should have been made, the fact of the matter is that the ref's made some bad calls. We as Steelers fans have seen that same process work against us.

I'm glad Tomlin didn't challenge those plays. I'm sure that he'll make the right call on a challenge when he needs to do so. Sometimes all it takes is an overturned call or a call-stands type play to give the other team a little swing and then we're battling things out again.

Tomlin gives a calm feeling about his presence on the sidelines. I get the feeling he knows about the challenges and that he should have or could have challenged but that he wants to send a different message to his players. Something to the affect of, "This is football and you need to play it on the field, not in the replay booth! - NOW GO GET ME THE FOOTBALL!"

I'm liking it - A LOT!

We all know the answer to that one... and that is why it was called an incomplete pass.
i'll say it again. a catch is a catch is a catch.

to have 3 different rules for a catch being caught in the field of play, along the sidelines, and in the endzone is simply retarded.

a catch is a catch is a catch.

a "football move"???????

and here i thought catching the freaking ball "was a "football move" all along. i guess i was wrong.

if a wr catches a pass at the sideline and just taps his toes he's inbounds.

but if he's falling down and hits the ground out of bounds and the ball pops out it's an incomplete pass even though he was in when he caught it. he has to maintain control when he hits the ground.

so the same thing goes for in the middle of the field. i just didn't see where the ball hit the ground at all on that play. maybe the ref had another angle.

not fretting....just posting. If we dont post we dont have a message board. I'm just saying so far this is a weakness. Its inevitable. Tomlin brings his "A" game monday-sat. Now he has to bring it on Sunday. Listen, I like him and know he's a rookie coach. I hope I'm wrong.

You "GO" Mike Tomlin!!!
