In before the merge (and ex-post facto whining).
I'm just glad that they finally admit it. Almost worse that the ruling was Blandino's excuse-making for why it wasn't a catch.
The Dez gag in the title is just playing to the “Dez caught it” threads that show up all the time. Mods, feel free to change the title if deemed needed for controversy.
The real point of this thread is we have first indication towards the new catch rule. Seems they’re making progress towards defining the steps to a catch and it seems they’re going towards “if it looks like a catch, it is” however they define steps and “football moves”.
We discussed this in the other thread (the one this will be merged into, lol) and honestly Blandino wasn't wrong. Maybe he could have explained it better.
True, but how else do you attempt to make your news story popular? Publicity 101. That young man has a future in the media, lol.
but but but, I heard it here by multiple people he didn't.
I guess now they have to try and convince the NFL to go back and replay that game after that point, and toss out the remaining playoff game results and take the championship away from the Patsies.
On a more serious note, it matters not that they admit it now. It changes nothing.
So even after the competition committee tells you he caught it you wont admit it?
Did they say he did? Or are they simply reviewing the rule that has caused such controversy and are considering revising it after the Jesse James play?
What good does it do other than stir the pot and dredge up bad history?
In 2021, John Mara will say that Ezekiel Elliott should not have been suspended for six games?
Did you read it? Megatron and Dez catches should have been ruled complete. Under the rule. Read the tweet man lol
He will say that after next season when Goodell wins his case against Jerry
They admitted he caught it.
until its an issue again in a big game and the cowboys player most certainly did not catch it.
Should have been complete by the rules in place at the time or would be complete if they vote to change the rule by revising the going to the ground portion of the rule presently? Read for understanding, man, and stop getting caught up in attention-grabbing headlines, lol.
You just wont give up will you? This says in plain English Dez caught it. They are reviewing the rule at the time and then discussing change. Not saying Dez catch would have stood with new rule. They haven't even announced a change to the rule.
Read for understanding? I am so happy you said that. "Should have been ruled complete" Should have indicates a past tense pretty much telling you and everyone else here that said he didn't catch it, that you are wrong. Past tense infers they are speaking about the RULE AT THE TIME
and people say replay takes too long...what was it, only like 3 years?
Something something something accountability
