that's a rather un-Dudian attitude there, dude.
it's a silly procedural issue. it should be a penalty, fine, but the replay should still proceed. after all, replay is about getting it right.
Yep the NFL has some stupid rules, Calvin had two feet down and the ball, then went to the ground, it was a catch.
Again, why have this be a penalty or cancel a review? What is the point?
go one step further. Any time you score a questionable TD, just throw the challenge flag. Play can't be reviewed then, and your TD has to stand.
Your average UofM fan and I have something in common, neither of us went to UofM. Though we do share One major difference, I got Accepted.
again.... the ruling was correct....... you can blame the rule.... but you can't blame the refs on this occasion......
Hey look pettigrew didn't even touch him
Of course the officials could have gotten the call right in the first place. Is that too much to ask?
I can't wait until Bill Belichick does this later in the year and the rule gets changed.
If this rule was in college, and it happened in tOSU game where they dont call miller down. Would you all still be complaining about the refs? Rules are rulesand refs are forced to enforce them, no matter how shitty they are
I have an MBA...Master at Being Amazing
The Dude does not live up to his user name.
I must be crazy to be in a loony bin like this.
ok...have to explain it to me...how would a team benefit from challenging a scoring play that will be reviewed anyway? The automatic replay people are going to look as long as they think they need to anyway...how does this give a team an advantage? I am missing something here.
Still a dumb fuck rule that shouldn't exist, and the people responsible for creating it and enforcing it should all be anally raped.
The only logical solution at the time was to pick up the flag, hand it to Schwartz and then review the scoring play as they normally would have. Schwartz was just reacting to potentially getting fucked by the refs again. And then, he gets screwed by the crooked refs and some crooked NFL "rule" anyway. Unfuckingbelievable.
Wrong. I can absolutely blame the refs. The rule is garbage and Schawrtz apparently messed up but how did all of the officials miss the fact that Dorsett WAS CLEARLY DOWN. It wasn't even close.
You can't blame the refs for not calling a guy down when he had and elbow AND a knee down? BULLSHIT.
I hate this argument
It's not true. If the replay official can't determine anything the call on the field stands even if the official thought they guy was down or whatever
Just letting the play go if you think he was down still isn't right
4 states of being in the cannabis society ------------
Which one are you??
Sure looked like a penalty there to me as Stafford slid.
Location: Mumbai, India
sweet run, you could have driven a bus through that hole.
Hey stafford slides, not supposed to be hit and ends up taking a shot helmet to helmet, and guess what no call
What the fuck, dude? We were the ones who would've scored on that play. Epic analogy fail.
Good blocking. Like that Reiff looks legit.
Michigan State does not and will not run the 3-4 defense.
You're a fucking idiot. He was clearly down, his elbow AND knee were down, how the fuck do you miss that? That's on the refs, period. It never should've happened in the first place had they not fucked it up.
Detroit teams will never get calls since we aren't a city that the world jerks off to like NYC, LA, Chicago, etc.
Walt Coleman is a hillbilly moron.
Sparty > Walverines
When Green Bay gets screwed on MNF the NFL is so outraged they get rid of replacement officials. Lions get screwed on Thanksgiving and there will be crickets from the NFL!!
