Default Goofy rules

1) Maintain possession through the whole process:

I wonder how they could nullify Ward's TD. As far as I know, he was in the end zone with the ball firmly in his hands and it's only after he rolled on the ground twice and out of bounds that the ball kind of got loose, although he never lost it.

2) Penalty on punt or kick-off:

How come when there's a penalty on a kick-off or a punt, let's say a holding, the receiving team gets a 1st and 10 ten yards back and and not 1st and 20 where the ball was spotted?
Same with personal foul (15 yards instead of 10).

As far as I know, moving the ball 10 yards to get a 1st down is easier than moving it 20 or 25 yards, no?

Did anyone see the Bears Falcons game? Knox of the Bears did not have control of the ball and was given the td. It wasnt even close compared to Hines.

Pass interference and the offense gets the ball at the spot of the foul as if the receiver actually caught the ball. And that's a big assumption to me. Watch any Patriots* game. It gets called alot when Brady* is on the field.

Yeah, that's another one. Time to bring back some sanity in the game. If it wasn't for instant replay through multiple angles, some rulings couldn't happen. How do they expect the zebras to see stuff than 3 or 4 cameras have a hard time catching?

How about allowing fumbles to happen after forward progress is clearly stopped? Such as Mendenhall sitting on another player totally immobile and guys ripping it out of his hands. Same with Logan earlier in the year getting the ball ripped out as he was stood up and being pushed backwards. Ever since the bad call last year with San Diego/Denver, the refs are too afraid to blow the whistle.

I'd like to see them call that when Sweed is the receiver and see if they assume that he was actually going to catch the ball.

Kinda like them never calling roughing the passer for Ben because of the "way he plays the game". I heard a Serius host say "he doesn't protect hmself so why should they."

Both of these clearly show that the refs are deciding the assumed outcome of a play. Why bother actually playing the games.

Mendenhall's fumble was a joke because the forward progress was stopped but he should better protect the ball anyway. He said afterwards that he had parts of his body on the ground. No friggin' way. He was clearly on top of a player, at least 10" above ground.

If Hines' TD catch wasn't a TD catch then Troy's pick against the Colts in the playoffs wasn't really a pick. He didn't maintain control of the ball through the process and the Ref was correct.
Seeing as the League admitted the Ref made a mistake and it was a pick then Hines' catch was a touchdown.

Common sense makes the Hines Ward ruling look silly. Since when is a play not over when the player with the ball goes out of bounds? If possession matters after touching out of bounds, then players should be able to fumble with one foot out.

It just makes no sense.

I did see that catch/no catch!

WTF?

INCONSISTANCY! Plain and simple.

The officiating is different from game to game and it's getting out of control. Each year that passes the refs get more and more retarded.

The ONLY consistancy is Marsha geting a flag by just turning to the ref and crying about a penalty!
