Default Being Honest About Ben's Fumble (Vote)

OK...if you voice your opinion, you may be considered a traitor or get attacked so now you can vote honestly and annonymously on the Ben play.

Feel free to comment.

People have already been commenting honestly on it...and if anyone got attacked I missed it lol.

A vote is fine though I guess.

How could some one be a traitor for voicing their opinion?.

OK. I'm going to vote Miami but I'll take it with a little guilt. lol

I think most of us know if the same thing had happened to Miami we'd be upset.

I do believe the refs tried to follow the rule but it feels wrong. I guess he was looking for DEFINATIVE proof but it looked like they jumped on the ball first from one angle.

There was still more than 2 minutes left so I still had faith.

This will all blow over and I'll take the win. OK...now back to pretending it was an obvious call we should have won...:)

You can never have incontrovertible video evidence of a fumble recovery in a scrum when the ball is in the pile - it is a hole in the replay rule that i assume will be fixed by refs now needing to verify who has the ball anytime it comes loose after the player allegedly scores

Life's unfair - if the Steelers lost the game that way I would be p***ed off but wonder why my team did not make sure it clearly had the ball after it came loose - Steelers were fortunate they allegedly had a WTF attitude about recovering the ball once the TD signal was given and were not burned

Lesson hopefully learned for Roethlisberger that improvd ball control when he is wrapped up is on the to do list

It will forever be unknown who would have had the ball in the endzone. I still think no matter what happened the Steelers would have won the game

Oh...OK. Honestly I hadn't read all the threads but I did look to see if there was a poll. I wanted people to feel free to express what they thought without being ganged up on. lol If that was happening, my bad...lol

Yeah but then they also up with the ball...lol Let's admit it, we got away with one. lol I was wondering whether Tomlin was going to be able to run to shake Sparanos hand. lol
What would he say...maybe "Tough Battle." IDK

The rule was designed but if we are going to say first person doesn't equal possession then it will never happen with a loose ball pile up.

One thing that I think is a little unfair is that when they blew the whistle and raised their hands TD, it slowed the Steelers down a second and that is enough time to give Miami an advantage.

Ben said in the post game interview, he had the ball in the scrum anyway but gave it up due to the fact it was initially called a TD, so there was no reason to hold on to it. As the rule states when the whistle is blown the play is dead.
