How many calls are the refs going to blow tonight?

Recommended Posts

I agree, that was a horrible call. What a horrible rule too. He miffed the fair catch call and somehow Pittsburgh gets a penalty for recovering the ball.

Sproles was in no position to make a catch. They just showed a replay on TV, Sproles was falling away from the ball - unless he is plastic man - there is no way he could have caught the ball. The question is when does the opportunity to make the fair catch end?

 

This is as bad as the "tuck" rule from 2 years ago.

Don't know if it is the rule or the call, but something is wrong with that situation. That was a big play in the game too. :D

Well what really sucks is that not only did Pitt not get the ball but they received a 15 yard penalty.

That is by far the most ridiculous ruling I have seen in a long, long time.

 

A total game changing play and the Steelers might as well be playing 11 against 18 at this point.

FYI-This year has been the worst officiating I can remember in many Moons :D , now I'm glad the Falcs lost yesterday(being a Panther Fan and NFC South standings and such), but they called Schaub out of bounds at a crucial juncture of the game, and the Lad was in by at leat a yard and a half-it's been horrlble this year-time for some young aggressive blood IMHO.

I just read the rules and I think they blew the call. There is no way Sproles could have even touched to ball again before it hit the ground let alone catch it. Bad rule, worse interpretation.

There have been bad bad bad calls in EVERY game. This call could completely change the momentum of the game.

Exactly!!!

 

Not sure if Cowher could have challenged if Sproles was in no position for a 2nd try to make a fair catch.

 

Terrible call and rule, I'm sure it will be discussed in the offseason meetings.

Well,yes they are, and a great investment, as my collection is insured for $350,000, and that's low for the collection as a whole.

I use too back in my younger days. I have not in a very long time.

 

I got the Avatar and Forum ID from DC comics. That is actually the 2nd time someone inquired about either the name or avatar.

They are seriously ruining a very good game with bad calls against both teams.
