    The ref was standing right on top of it too. Apparently we missed the memo saying the rule only applies to big bad mean Roy Williams. (who incidentally was quite big bad an mean today IMO)

    The big question is will the league fine the guy for that?

    Aikman said the guy was grabbed by his jersey which is not classified as a horse collar tackle...it has to be grabbed by the shoulder pads.

    Not sure if that is correct but that was what Aikman said.

    Well Troy was wrong, it was a Horse collar...

    No jersey was pulled, he was grabbed by the "horse collar"...

    I think this is only a flag if ROY does it, hence the "Roy rule" name :)

    He grabbed exactly like Roy did and I believe it doesn't matter if its jersey anyway. Grabbing like that from behind and immediately dragging the guy down is what they want to avoid for injury sake.

    Aikman didnt say it. Buck did. And on the replay he grabs his pads and not his jersey. His jersey barely moved but his *** sure did...straight to the ground.

    Hard to improve on 4 possessions and 4 TD's inside the red zone. That's production.

    The pads were definitely grabbed. Like Dallas said, the jersey barely moved. I can't believed that wasn't called.

    Heheh I just dont like Buck. Thats why I remembered. He also pissed me off insulting my intelligence during the replay.

    As the replay is being shown he says "yes folks that was jersey...no penalty" or something like that. I was like. Idiot...get some new glasses. :cool:

    Really...he wears gramma glasses. :D

    I was screaming at my tv when that happened. But it didn't help. Sorry guys, I just wasn't as effective on that call as I would have liked to have been.

    Why are we surprised? Roy wouldn't have been able to pull himself from the turf from the sheer weight of the flags that would have landed on him if he'd have done it.
