Ref above picture. We have no idea who is even touching the ball as we can not see it.

This is almost impossible to believe, but imagine if this is true? This was a press release from the Lingerie Football League today.


"Because of the LFL's perception it is that much more critical for us to hire officiating crews that are competent, not only for the credibility of our game but to keep our athletes safer. Due to several on-field incompetent officiating we chose to part ways with with a couple crews which apparently are now officiating in the NFL. We have a lot of respect for our officials but we felt the officiating was not in line with our expectations. We have not made public comment to date because we felt it was not our place to do so. However in light of tonight's event, we felt it was only fair that NFL fans knew the truth as to who are officiating these games."

Jennings feet were never on the ground. He appeared to have control when he was in the air. Tate grabbed the ball and pulled the ball and Jennings back onto the field of play. Tate's shoulders impacted the endzone with both hands on the ball. Touchdown. Jennings pulled control of the ball back but too late-still a TD.

When a player (or players) is going to the ground in the attempt to catch a pass, Rule 8, Section 1, Article 3, Item 1 states:

Player Going to the Ground. If a player goes to the ground in the act of catching a pass (with or without contact by an opponent), he must maintain control of the ball throughout the process of contacting the ground, whether in the field of play or the end zone. If he loses control of the ball, and the ball touches the ground before he regains control, the pass is incomplete. If he regains control prior to the ball touching the ground, the pass is complete.
Sounds good to me.

IMO-Jennigs had possession and control from beginning to end. It was Tate's "possession"/"control" that was temporary at best. Tate certainly never "maintain control of the ball throughout the process of contacting the ground"

and this is coming from a die hard vikes fan who was cheering every Rogers sack!

Here's a perfect example from when the regular refs were around that you guys have so much faith in.

Again, the replacements called it exactly right and the regular NFL booth official concurred.

No horse in this race, but you are absolutely right in this case.

that looks toatlly simaltaneous to me. Austin gets two hands immediately in the air and all the way through. Doesn't compare to Tate at all imo.

Yes, I agree.....Chaos is fun with a sixpack and a bowl of goldfish.....The MNF game was almost as entertaining as the Looting with shop carts in NOLA during Katrina.....

Does anyone have the mental energy to watch a NFL game this weekend after what happened last night?
